I have not been able to get printing working on this PC. By accident. I 
noticed that the ::1 port does not seem to be available. I tried this 

~ $ telnet localhost 25
Trying ::1...
telnet: connect to address ::1: Connection refused
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 scorpio.seibercom.net ESMTP Postfix (2.4-20060727)
221 2.0.0 Bye
Connection closed by foreign host.

As you can see, it says that the connection was refused. Is this normal? I 
thought that ::1 and localhost were always available.
