Strange; I just created an alias on my PC, told cups to listen on my main IP, and it did...

eth0 =
eth0:0 =

# grep Listen /etc/cups/cupsd.conf
Listen localhost:631
Listen /var/run/cups/cups.sock

# netstat -nltp | grep cupsd
tcp        0      0 *                   LISTEN      18733/cupsd
tcp        0      0     *                   LISTEN      18733/cupsd

$ telnet 631
telnet: connect to address Connection refused
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused

Guess you restarted cupsd... right?
