So lpstat returns all print queues. What is a quick way to determine which of the print queues are remote and which are local?

From man page for lpstat:

The display generated by the lpstat command contains two entries for remote queues. The first entry contains the client's local queue and local device name and its status information. The second entry contains the client's local queue name followed by the remote queue name.

This should allow you to identify which queue is local, and which remote.
