    Hi, all,:)
    I have a fixed public IP address (132.*.*.*) and I plan to install a network printer with an internal IP (192.168.1.109). So I have to add another IP address (e.g., 192.168.1.129) to let network-printing working.
    My question:
    Can LnS protect me from machines with addresses 192.168.1.*?
    thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    I'm not sure if both IP will be attached so the same network adapter or if there will be two different network adapter.
    If there is only one adapter, yes Look 'n' Stop will filter all packets (however rules using the "Equal my IP" criteria may not work properly because only one IP is retrieved for these rules).
    If there are two adapters, you will need to start 2 instances of Look 'n' Stop, one per network adapter.

    Regards,

    Frederic
