For a machine connected over the internet to pass through a firewall and
print using samba what ports do I need open? I am using CUPS and SAMBA so
do I need to open up the ports to connect to CUPS as well as SAMBA?
Basically is the situation when printing with samba at the point of
connection to the printer a or b below?
(a) remote machine --> print job --> firewall --> samba server --> printer
(b) remote machine --> print job --> firewall --> printer
The problem is I can see the samba shares and see the printer but I cannot
connect to the printer even though all the Samba ports are open properly.
