How is it connected? Via a cable (usb) or wirelessly, etc. If it thinks there is a firewall in place, it must assume the printer is on a different network then the PC and it has to be routed. Normally the printer will set itself up using DHCP from your router, if you have DHCP turned of you may have to turn it back on or manually set an IP for the printer in the IP. Refer to the Owners Manual.

I cannot print from laptop to wireless hp j4680 printer


Hi
one possible cause for this could be your connection setup. Make sure your antivirus is not blocking incoming connections from other wireless devices. You must disable your firewall for your wireless connection to be accessible to other wireless devices. If you're using norton then your firewall is managed by norton, so you should disable the firewall from the norton interface. Hope this works.

If you are getting this problem to a Network Printer then you should check the Firewall of Server PC or The PC to which Printer is Directly Conncted, Disable Firewall of that system and check the Properties again on remote pc on which you are getting this message, in miy case norton internet security was blocking printer to all my network pc and i was getting same error. but when i set the firewall to shared mode (its only in NIS) all pc started to print normally.... :)

Desktop won't connect with printer connected to laptop


Make sure both computers can share files and can ping each other, if not, it's just a firewall issue. Try to disable your firewall first.

Firewall blocking runescape


Disable all firewalls, as Norton, Zone alarm etc.
Also disable windows firewall from control panel.

If it still does not work check the router settings. Routers have internal firewall, you may need to add your laptop's ip or mac address to the firewall as trusted one.

An alternative is connecting laptop by wires to the router, probably the router firewall will let it go , as wired connections are set to less resticted security.

Port forwarding only applies when you have a router.
You're on a PC with a direct link to internet.
So... there must be a software firewall, like the one in windows? disable it.
Try again...
I'm not familiar with nokia 5310... does it create a lan connection? or is just like some other regular modem?!
maybe your operator is blocking that kind of traffic.
