Question about FreeBSD 6.2 Release and CUPS

Can someone please tell me the steps I need to do so that I can use CUPS as
the printing system on FreeBSD 6.2 Release and so that I can connect to the
CUPS server and administer it using the KDE Control Center?
I've tried everything I can find using Google to get CUPS working with KDE,
but even when I manually configure the server to "Listen localhost:631", the
KDE control center shows the server as "localhost:w" and can't connect. Any
help would be appreciated.
Starting from a new install of FreeBSD 6.2 Release, what packages/ports do I
need to (install/not install) and what procedures do I need to perform in
order to get CUPS working and configurable via KDE control center? Please
specify details. Thanks
One last question. Do I need to unset these in sysctl.conf for CUPS
administration to work?
With them set, trying to connect to the administration page of CUPS via the
web interface timed out and then failed, but when I removed the entries, the
connection failed immediately. If I must unset them, is there another way to
stealth ports 0 and 1 via firewall settings instead?
