Hi,
We currently have two offices.

In one office we have a solaris machine and in the other a unix machine.

We are trying to send printjobs from the solaris machine to the unix machine in the other office through a firewall to an internal networked printer.

When doing a tcpdump on the unix machine it shows that the solaris machine is trying to send the print job, but does not seem to be allowing it through.... any idea?

Assuming rlpdaemon is running on the remote system (BTW, Solaris is Unix, so what do you mean by "a unix machine?") and tcp port 515 is enabled in /etc/services for remote printing, check the firewall allows traffic on port 515.
