Description of problem:
Can't see printers being offered from CUPS servers; browsing isn't
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
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.
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.
