Firewall <-> CUPS

Suse 8.2 with a 2.4.20-4GB-athlon kernel is running on my computer. In yast2 I have configured and got to work the SuSEfirewall. But since the firewall is working my computer does not recognise the CUPS printer installed on the local network.
In /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2 under point 10 I have added:


where refers to the CUPS server in the network and 631 is the ipp port. But even after a restart of the firewall with this configuration the printers are not seen by my computer.

Do I have to allow more ports than only 631? Or are other configurations required in order to get CUPS working.

I would appreciate any hints concerning this problem.

Best regards Michael
