Description Bryan W Clark 2004-09-03 20:29:39 UTC
The GNOME Printing utilities now auto-populate the print dialogs with
printers found through service discovery.  For a Desktop install we
definitely need to have an option in the firewall tool for allowing
print service discovery. [x] CUPS (Printing)

This service also needs be checked off by default on desktop installs.
 Perhaps restricted to the local subnet since I believe the service
discover cannot go beyond that anyway.

CC'ing Walters and Matthias on this one too.

Do we even want to offer the option of blocking it?

Comment 2 Bryan W Clark 2004-09-07 15:24:39 UTC
My major concern here is that the print detection system works.

Because of the interference from the firewall I assumed that this port
had been shutoff for security reasons.  However if we feel that always
opening up the firewall for CUPS isn't a terrible security threat,
then I'm fine with that since my major concern is taken care of.  It
will also give much less room for error in the firewall/printing setup.

Comment 3 Paul Nasrat 2004-09-14 09:55:28 UTC
I'm happy to do either - though have I missed the screen/string freeze
for FC3t2.  In which case I can open by default and then when I
improve the add/remove trusted services ui for bug #124161 you'll get
better configuration.

This sound like a plan?

Comment 4 Colin Walters 2004-09-14 13:07:09 UTC
That sounds reasonable, but we definitely have to document that the
firewall allows this by default, since the current default is to deny
*everything* except a few ICMP packets, right?

Comment 5 Bryan W Clark 2004-09-14 17:39:58 UTC
Sounds reasonable to me too.  Lets go with that.

Comment 6 Bryan W Clark 2004-09-24 20:24:12 UTC
this is a similar issue to bug 133478

Comment 7 Bryan W Clark 2004-10-13 15:39:24 UTC
paul, can we commit to opening this up and fix the UI issues later.

Comment 8 Paul Nasrat 2004-10-13 16:47:39 UTC
CUPS browsing should be enabled in latest s-c-securitylevel (you will
have to update s-c-securitylevel-tui).  A rebuild for another issue
pulled it in so it just wasn't in the %changelog.

Can someone with a cups setup test with configuring firewall with 

Comment 9 Bill Nottingham 2004-10-13 19:42:21 UTC
Works for me with 1.4.10-1.
