Solved Allow connecting to the CUPS web interface

To be honest, because I won't run any service or remotely connect to my machine what I usually do is to deny all incoming traffic and allow outgoing traffic. I'm used to ufw on Linux, and this is the first time I use FreeBSD and pf.

I'm using the ruleset described in the handbook:
block in all
pass out all keep state
But to my surprise this also blocks managing CUPS through the web interface (by entering http://localhost:631 in a web browser). I thought that it was a connection I created so it would be allowed.

How can I allow the management of CUPS locally?
Thanks in advance.
