Does the "sharee" also need the IPP ports open?  So a user would need to
explicitly set "show printers shared by other systems" in
s-c-printers--it couldn't be the default.

ISTR some discussion in the past of why it was a bad idea for
s-c-printers to open and close the ipp and lpr ports.  (Don't have a
link handy, but I think there was a BZ about this issue).
