That is done. Do I actually need to set one in the cupsd.conf or does it
automatically grab one?

Right now, silly, I know, there is no firewall within my network. There
is one on the route to the outside world. This will probably be
changing, but it isn't right now.

Hmm, you are correct. I wasn't seeing printers where I looked. Ooops,
wrong location.

So the question is, how can I tell if cupsd is allowing the browsing. I
am watching with Ethereal and I see nothing. In my apps I see nothing.

Also, I noticed that in the printer definitions in cupsd.conf (defs is
wrong, more like acl) I see that the order is deny,allow and the first
line is deny all even though a few lines later it says allow everyone.
Is this accurate?
