Hi,

I think individual packet filtering on every single machine is a good idea, at
the price of having to configure the filtering rules for every running
service.

About the CUPS problem:

Are you sure it's a firewall problem? I don't think port 631 has to be opened
on the client machine.
Does it work with the firewall completely shut down?
Check out the CUPS logs (and the firewall entries in /var/log/messages, if
your problem is really firewall related), you may find helpful hints there.

Bye,
Holger
