Full Description:
To support netprint on the new Lion OS, we need the KDC to listen on TCP. Enabling TCP support on the KDC requires 2 changes:\n\n1) The host based firewall rules have to be changed by Systems.\n2) The application configuration has to be changed to support TCP which requires a restart of the app. This takes less than 3 secs.
