Going from memory...

Check to see if cupsd is running:

#ps auxww| grep cupsd

if something other than 'grep cupsd' is listed, I don't know why you
can't access the site.  If nothing comes back:

Start the cupsd daemon:

#/usr/local/etc/rc.d/ start

(Might be a bit off, can't recall)

You might need to modify /etc/rc.conf first:

#echo "cupsd_enable="YES" >> /etc/rc.conf

The above script to start cups should tell you want variable you need
in rc.conf to get cupsd working.

Hope this helps.
