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.

There are different ports used for printing. HP printers use port 9100, other manufacturers may use other ports. An overview can be found at http://members.cruzio.com/~jeffl/sco/lp/printservers.htm

What printer do you want to share?
