On the laptop of my daughter it's not possible to print to a CUPS-printer on

First I had the wireless lan in the external zone, and defined exceptions for

Then I modified the WiFi interface to the internal zone, and checked the

Wait, what?!

If you can print by disabling the firewall on the LAPTOP, then why are you

Clearly the problem is in the latptop.

Maybe you should tell us a bit about the laptop OS and what ever OS is used for
your Cups server?

Its possible the laptop is going direct, via Jet-Direct (port 9100), and

when you disable the firewall laptop.
Its also possible your cups server is not serving your local net, but only

In any event, If the problem is solved by simply disabling the firewall on her
then the problem is not the structure of the network.
