I haven't followed this entire thread, so not sure if it's related, but I
discovered last night that printing through IPP (cups) to an FC3 server
required opening ipp:tcp in system-config-securitylevel on the FC3
machine.  Apparently, turning on printer sharing in system-config-printer
only opens ipp:udp.

With only ipp:udp open, I could see the printers just fine on clients, but
jobs would just queue without printing.  When I opened ipp:tcp, all the
queued jobs flushed.

In FC2, I think I had to open ipp ports by hand and I opened both.  In
FC3, the printing system opens only the UDP port.  An FC3 *client* works
fine with just the UDP port open (at least to another FC system), but the
server apparently needs TCP as well.

I have the related Bugzilla #142015 for desktop-printing because I thought
this was a client-side issue when I first saw it.  There may be real
problems there too, but it also appears to be connected to this issue.
