I am getting closer to solving my home network printing configuration
problem but close in this case is like close in horseshoes. It just not
good enough.
Here is the deal. there is no firewall or selinux running on any of the
home network machines. The three machines have the following ip-s.   print server  hardwired to DSL router.  FC4   a print client with its own local printer. hardwired to
the DSL router. FC5 wireless so ip may change. print client. FC4

telnet ip-number 25 connects from any two machines.
telnet ip-number 631 connects from clients to server.
telnet ip-number 631 refuses connection from server to clients.

With this state of affairs it is not surprising that cups printer
browsing from server to clients does not work.

Does anyone have a suggestion where the problem may lie, how to find out
and how to fix things?
