Description Jim Gettys 2003-05-19 11:32:12 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030502

Description of problem:
Can't see printers being offered from CUPS servers; browsing isn't

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install fresh redhat 9; enable firewall when requested
2. configure a printer and export it for public use.
3. Look for that printer from another machine.

Actual Results:  No printer is visible.

Expected Results:  Printer should be visible from another machine.

Additional info:

Best guess is that the firewall was inhibiting the browse
packets to/from cups, so no printers are seen.

I've since turned off the firewall "feature", and things work.

Services such as this need some way to enable the right ports.
