What are possible causes of Reset-I on a connection to a printer behind a FWSM interface?

We have a new printer behind a FWSM FW interface.

Aall the correct ports are allowed and nothing  is denied for traffic between the print server and the printer.
The statics are properly set up and other devices behind this interface are reachable from outside.

However each inbound conn. from the print server is immediately torn down with  a TCP Reset-I
Clearly the printer doesn't want to talk to the print server - but how to figure out why?

thanks-
Lynne

It doesn't sounds like it has anything to do with the firewall.  This sounds like a printer/print-server configuration problem really.
You should probably try to expand to some zone closer to the heart of that.

Perhaps the ports are configurable or something.. but I don't know too much about printers.

Thanks.
That's pretty much what I thought, but wanted to sanity-check my conclusion...
