Printing to a printer with a public address assigned.


I have a public address that I can (would like to anyway) setup with a publi address so that it can be printed to by clients out on the web. I know that this could pose a problem by leaving the machine exposed, but thats a risk I'm prepared to take right now for the sake of testing.

If I were to put this machine behind a firewall, what ports would I need to have opened to allow the print jobs through?

Are there any other points that I should be aware of that you would consider important.

Please advise.
