Firewall

Post#1 by Narmer » 09 Feb 2015, 08:09

The firewall seems to be blocking the print jobs I send to my wireless printer. When the firewall is on print jobs think that the printer is not connected. When I turn off the firewall I can print fine. Is there any way to allow print jobs through the firewall without turning it completely off? I'm using Mate 64bit.

You need to find the port that the printer is using, then open these ports in your firewall perhaps using 'iptables'.
