Thanks.  That did it.

Looking in logs I found the rule.  Here is the log entry :

Category: Firewall
Date                 User    Message 
6/28/2005 1:53:10 PM,Michael,"Rule ""Block Windows File Sharing"" stealthed
(MY-MACHINE(nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn),netbios-ssn(139)).","Rule ""Block Windows File
Sharing"" stealthed
(MY-MACHINE(nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn),netbios-ssn(139)).  Inbound TCP connection
Local address,service is
(MY-MACHINE(nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn),netbios-ssn(139))  Remote address,service is
Process name is ""System""" 

The nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn is the address of my router.

Modifying just this rule now allows me to print.

Also, the log shows that it is  "C:\WINDOWS\system32\spoolsv.exe" that
accesses the network.

Thanks again for the help guys.  If the whole world were as helpful as this
list imagine what we could achieve.

Michael -

Does your firewall offer the ability to allow programs to access the
network?  If so, you should be able to configure NPF to allow emacs to
access the net.  With a decent firewall, you should be able to get a report
of what executable is trying to access the 'net when you print from emacs
(in your FW logs) and allow that executable access.  If NPF is slick enough,
you can allow access to a specific IP, such as that assigned to your
printer/print server (depending on the config).

There are a variety of programs available from that you
might try.  For example, turn off the Norton firewall and run TCPView.
Then, print from emacs and watch for the name of the executable that comes
up when you print.  That should help ...
