thats why your printer hasn't been getting the info .

Anyway, basically the procedure is almost the same for the both:

# you cannot sync the device because the firewall doesn't let you to do so. So you have to add this SkyCaddie as an EXCEPTION.
1. check the firewall icon in your toolbar
2. double-click on it to open the main window
3. in SETTINGS (or similar name) check ADD EXCEPTION
4. open ADD EXCEPTION and click on a "+" sign or on "ADD..."
5. go in the list of software and pick up your device

You're done!


GOOD LUCK!

I get error 'Unable to find destination PC-Check the PC' on Kyocera Mita


Hi.

This error means that there is a communication problem between the printer and the computer that is receiving scanned file. The error is usually prompted on network installed printers.

Check to ensure that the Scanner File Utility software is running and the computer is able to receive data.
Try restarting the computer and printer. Disconnect both units from power supply for five minutes before restarting.
Check if you have firewall or security software active on computer that can block communication from scanner. Ensure that the scanner utility is listedas an exception on firewall settings, if the application is not present, then you need to add it to allowed applications list.
Ensure that you have granted Scanner Utility access to system resources if asked.
Reinstall printer software and driver on PC. This can be done either using the disk provided with the printer, or using the download from Mita website.
Test the computer network cable. If cable is worn it can cause communication errors. This problem is usually occurring on LAN (network) printer installation. If using local installation via USB, then test using a different USB cable. If USB cable is damaged or too long (over 10 m.) , then you may get the error stated on local installation.

The most common reason for this problem is firewall settings or network problems. Network problems may be difficult to troubleshoot. Remember also that there is a built in firewall in the router resident software. If the router is set to block inbound communication from printer to computer, or if printer and computer are in two different IP ranges (eg. 192.168.1.xxx and 192.168.2.xxx), then you may get communication between computer and printer blocked by router firewall.

Here a setup manual (click to download), also ensure that you have performed scanner setup correctly.

Here also Kyocera Mita download driver page:Kyocera's managed print services .

Create Exceptions in Windows Vista Firewall


Windows Vista Firewall acts like a fence between your computer and the outer world, but since any fence needs a gate, you have to let some data get in and out by setting exceptions. While some exceptions are set up automatically by Windows Vista, others have to be configured manually Setting a manual exception for a certain program.
  1. Click Start and enter the Control Panel
  2. Here, access the link called "Allow a program through Windows Firewall" (bellow the Security). exceptions1.png
  3. Go to the General Tab, and make sure that the option "On (recommended)" is selected. If not, enable it (this will enable the firewall). exceptions2.png
  4. Go to the Exceptions tab at the top.
  5. To add a program you to your exception list click Add Program (near the bottom). exceptions3.png
  6. A list with the programs on your computer is displayed. Locate the program, highlight it and click OK. exceptions4.png
  7. Be sure that the check box besides your program is checked, then click OK exceptions5.png
Other tips
The most powerful addition to the Vista Firewall is the excellent Rules system. This allows you to enable traffic only in certain conditions, just like opening a gate only for people dressed in white, but they will only be allowed to enter.
  • to specific computers and users
  • to many different protocols (not just TCP and UDP)
  • to both local and remote ports
  • to specific interface types: location area network, remote access, or wireless
  • to specific Vista services
Despite the vulnerability claims, a well configured Vista Firewall is much more capable than all its predecessors, and despite the fact that nothing is perfect, everything starts from you, the user behind the screen.

Im trying to update my xbox but it wont connect ive done everything it told me but still wont let me


Here's how I fixed mine. When I got the message stating that the download was unsuccessful I went into settings, then network, and I tested my network connection. During a network test it automatically logs your profile out, but when the test came back good, before it logged my profile back in, it asked me to update again. I hit "a" to accept the update and it worked this time. I think the key is that it has to attempt the update before logging your profile back in. I think the key is updating with the profile logged out, which under normal circumstances you can't do, only during a network test.

If that fix doesn't work you might try going into your network settings in the dashboard and lowering your firewall restrictions, then updating, then putting your firewall restrictions back to what they were.

Why is my dell dimension 3000 with xp keeps getting file download- security warning for everything I try to open? Even opening the internet icon on my computer


I see XP, sorry ok here's your fix...
Because a firewall restricts communication between your computer and the Internet, you might need to adjust settings for some programs that prefer an open connection. These adjustments are called "exceptions." To learn more about exceptions, see the Using the Exceptions Tab section of this article.
Windows Firewall now has three settings: On, On with no exceptions, and Off.
On: Windows Firewall is turned on by default, and normally you should leave it that way. When you choose this setting, Windows Firewall blocks all unsolicited requests to connect to your computer, except for requests to programs or services selected on the Exceptions tab.
On with no exceptions: When you select the Don't allow exceptions check box, Windows Firewall blocks all unsolicited requests to connect to your computer, including requests to programs or services selected on the Exceptions tab. Use this setting when you need maximum protection for your computer, such as when you connect to a public network in a hotel or airport, or when a dangerous virus or worm is spreading over the Internet.
Tip There is no need to keep Don't allow exceptions selected all the time, because when it is, some of your programs might not work correctly, and the following services are blocked from accepting unsolicited requests:
• File and Printer Sharing
• Remote Assistance and Remote Desktop
• Discovery of network devices
• Preconfigured programs and services on the exceptions list
• Additional items that you've added to the exceptions list

Note When you select Don't allow exceptions, you can still send and receive e-mail, use an instant messaging program, or view most Web pages.
Off: This setting turns Windows Firewall off. When you choose this setting, your computer is much more vulnerable to harm from unknown intruders or viruses from the Internet. This setting should only be used by advanced users for computer administration purposes, or if your computer is protected by another firewall.
To adjust Windows Firewall settings
1.
Click Start and then click Control Panel.
2.
In the control panel, click Windows Security Center.
3.
Click Windows Firewall.
4.
In the General Tab make your selection.

Windows Firewall General tab
Note Settings that you create when your computer is joined to a domain are stored separately from those created when your computer is not joined to a domain. These separate groups of settings are called profiles.

If the above does not work you may also need to adjust your internet security settings. You can do this by the following:
Open up your internet explorer
click on tools
select internet options
click on the security tab
change the sttings to medium, rather than what they are. Click apply and ok. Exit your browser and restart it to try to connect again. Let me know if the above options do not work and we will try the next step. Hope this helps!

My Netgear PS121 print server requires disabled firewall (Win XP) to install. After installation, which ports has to be open in Windows Firewall, if I want the printserver to work with Windows XP Firewall...


You may try to set Exceptions on the XP Firewall configuration.

Open Windows Firewall, go to Exceptions tab.
Make sure that File and Printer Sharing is checked.
Then click Add Port.
For Port Number, enter 139 and select TCP.
Do the same for port 445 TCP, 137 UDP, 138 UDP, and 9200 TCP.

Stepson has a 2600 and when installed says everything is ready. when you print, message comes up about a communication problem. gives solutions about what to try, tried them all, except don't know how to...


I don't think you have connected the printer as a network printer. If you have just connected the printer to the computer, the firewall will not block anything to the printer. If it says system doesn't meet min. requirements, try increasing the RAM of the computer. That will probably help!

Trouble with pdf docs


If your pdf's are saved on your pc or mac and they print fine, then it is probably a problem with firewall or av. allowing printing from internet. Check PDF program settings for port number to exclude or accept in firewall or check firewall and add pdf program to list of exceptions.

C3100 Printing Fails from XP


Disable firewall to test if it is actually blocking. Windows Firewall should not normally be configured to block printing.

Make a new printer instance, but use a standard TCP/IP port

If that fails, install the driver using the canon setup.exe installer for you unit.
