Set the network printer as default printer using the System preferences. Or
use the lpoptions command.  With the lpoptions command you can also check
what the default printer is.

Of course you can also set the printer name with an emacs option, but then
you have to find the exact name of the printer. With system preferences it
may be easier to find. The command lpstat -a will give you a list of all

After that you should be able to use the print commands from the File menu.
The CUPS system should take care of the necessary processing.
