Firewall and user services that needs open ports



I needed to print through a network printer a few days ago. But it
doesn't just work. Seems like the firewall need to be stopped and
cups-config-daemon need to be started (not sure bout the latter, coz i
simply start all cups related services).

This raises a question, as Fedora turns on firewall by default, what's
the plan for certain user services that requires firewall to be turned
off (cups, gnome file sharing) ?? Something like PolicyKit but for
firewall??. Ubuntu took the easy way of simply disabling firewall, and
I doubt Fedora will follow that path.
