I noticed that the internal firewall blocks by default for CUPS

Is this by the design or is it a bug?

The external zone by default has no ports open. That's intentional
of course.

Printing to a printer needs opening ports? :-?
I thought we needed opening the port only if other computers wanted to print to "my" cups.

If it needs opening a port, shouldn't yast automatically open it, or at least, advise to open it, as soon as it knows I want to use a network printer?

I couldn't finish configure the printer, yast only works in ncurses mode (known bug) and I couldn't figure out what was happening. It could be because of closed port, dunno.
