comment Why do lp and lpr return unauthorized?
hmm maybe you could check the cups.conf file and check for local user printing permissions. also, it could be that the user trying to print doesnt have read permissions to the cups.conf file. if so, chmod 644 /etc/cups/client.conf . gl!

comment iptables as gateway and POP3 SMTP ports
Gabor thanks for bearing with me! im not using iptables commands, im editing iptables file directly so the reboot thing is puzzling me. however everytime a configuration works i actually do try to reboot and make sure everything is still working, but the next day it would stop working. witchcraft maybe. anywhose ive edited my original post, please check it and let me know what you think

comment iptables as gateway and POP3 SMTP ports
i see. if i were to add the stateful rule and add the forwarding rules for ports pop3 and smtp ports only to specified ip addresses as Jiri below suggested, would that still be insecure?
