I wanted to have my network in an external zone, but allow network printing via
cups. So I enabled the cups service in the firewall module of yast, but still
no remote printers were listed in the printer module of yast, although several
are available in my network.

I have to manually add '631' in the field for the external zone in the
broadcast section of the firewall module or to modify to receive the printers
via cups.

Reproducible: Always

Actual Results:
No remote printers found after enabling the cups service in the firewall

Expected Results:
Remote printers are shown after enabling cups service in the firewall.
