Not unless it was installed by default, and silently - I'm trusting the router at this point. I did get the warning that port 631 would be opened if I shared printers, but if it was a firewall I shouldn't be able to access it from any other machine (as I've not done anything by way of firewall configuration it should be all or nothing).
