printing server

Hello there,
I bought me a new WLAN printer "Brother HL-2135W". The printer now shows up in my LAN and also shows up in the web interface of the CUPS server on my PC. Now I'd like to send printing jobs from my PC via the WLAN to the printer.
My question: Do I need to run a cups server on my PC to send printing jobs to the printer and if this is the case what should be the address of the printing server in my cups server? There are numerous ways to connect to the printer (IPP, LPD, etc.) but non of them worked so far.
The box of the printer says that it has a "WLAN-PrintServer" so I guess it should be possible to send printing jobs to this server without running a CUPS server on my PC? In that case how do I connect my PC to the printing server on the printer via a protocol like IPP?

Re: printing server

Yes you would need to run a CUPs server on the PC if no native installer for Linux didn't come with the printer. Your best bet is to look at the CUPs arch Linux wiki
