Not much from this, but I've run it from F12.  Do you need results
from the live cd?

# /usr/lib/cups/backend/snmp 172.26.33.191
network socket://172.26.33.191 "HP LaserJet 4050 Series " "HP LaserJet
4050 Series " "" ""
# /usr/lib/cups/backend/snmp 172.26.33.192
network socket://172.26.33.192 "Xerox WorkCentre 5638 v1 Multifunction
System" "Xerox WorkCentre 5638 v1 Multifunction System" "" "machine
location not set"

The nw printers that I do use also don't yield much info.

I have the firewall disabled, btw so it shouldn't have affected my
previous response.
