Thanks to all who replied.  As always this is the best forum for quick and
practicable fixes.

The problem actually looks a bit easier than I thought.  As we only use the
lp system we should only need port 515 open through the firewall.  For once
this is not something that they only realised needed doing after the event
so I have time to plan and implement it.  The best suggestion for if it is
still not working is to look at the firewall logs while tyring to send print
jobs to see which port is being blocked.

Incidentally, we use Kyocera printers here with a locally created driver so
the situation would be different were one to use jetadmin say.

Thanks all .
