I am trying to setup filter exceptions to print to a LPR printer
outside
the private network with a public ip address.

printing works fine until filters are in place..

according to novell's port matrix, port 3396 is used by the ndps
manager
and port 515 is the lpr port.

I set up filter exceptions as follows:

-1-
packet type: TCP source port 1024-65535 dest port 3396
source interface: public
dest interface: private
source IP address: the IP address of the remote site
dest IP address: the private IP address of the NDPS

-2-
packet type: TCP source port 3396 dest port 1024-65535
source interface: private
dest interface: public
source IP address: the private IP address of the NDPS
dest IP address: the IP address of the remote site
ack bit filtering: enabled

-3-
packet type: TCP source port 1024-65535 dest port 515
source interface: public
dest interface: private
source IP address: the IP address of the remote site
dest IP address: the private IP address of the NDPS

-4-
packet type: TCP source port 515 dest port 1024-65535
source interface: private
dest interface: public
source IP address: the private IP address of the NDPS
dest IP address: the IP address of the remote site
ack bit filtering: enabled

On the NDPS manager for this printer I get:
LPR Communications Failed.

Can anyone tell me what exception I have missed/or what errors I have

made??
