Yes you do unless you want to use LPR protocol. As you know the CUPS
normally uses IPP protocol for communication over the network which is
not supported by native LPD spooling system.
You also have to add the file client.conf inot /usr/local/etc/cups with
the server name which can be IP address. Something like ServerName
