Network printer via cups, if upgrade from Fedora 15 to Fedora 16

Hi,
I have upgraded my Fedora x86_64 from 15 to 16, after changing my windows password what i found is that the printer is not working (printing status: Held) (Printer is a windows share)

This usually occur on NT authentication failure and can be fix by providing new/correct windows password.

But this time unable to configure the printer, on clicking verify button dialog box appears "Share is not accessible", what


But now i found the solution,

it is cups package that is making problem, so
# yum remove cups
restart the system & install
# yum install cups system-config-printer

open, system settings > printer, and configure network printer.
now it is working fine.

Probably the firewall is the problem. Using the printer wizard I just opened the firewall ports and was able to install and use my network printer from CUPS just fine. Wouldn't have needed to use the printer wizard I guess if I knew which ports needed to be opened in the firewall of Fedora.

tried everything:
1. disable firewall,
2. disable selinux,
3. yum check-update , followed by, yum upgrade

nothing works but removing cups and reinstalling cups & system-config-printer.
