Hi,
I've had remote printing with my desktop and laptop for about 6 months. The printer is connected to the desktop and the laptop prints off of it. I recently did a few security changes. I changed over to NOD32 Antivirus and Armor2net firewall. I've unblocked everything on the firewall on both computers that I can find. But on the laptop the printer still doesn't show up on the list of network printers when I browse for one. I double checked, and the printer is set to shared. Any suggestions to get it back working??

Hi. When you unblocked some things on the firewall, what did you unblock? Make sure you unblock the computer's IP address.

Are you very familiar with Armor2net? I have all my programs unblocked, but there is another tab called "Net State" with some options I not very familiar with. I've tried to do it, but I don't thing you can change options on it. It has a list of about 30 items and it lists details about each of them which are:

Remote Address
Local Application/port
Protocol
Status
Action (this one has the option that can be clicked called "Shut"

I haven't quite got familiar with it as I would like to be.

Any suggestions or other methods to print remotely?

Does this firewall have any documentation in the help section you can read up on?

The help document is just goes deeper into the firewall features and doesn't have a section for problems and solutions or FAQ's
