    Hi guys,

    I've searched the FAQ and supp docs and followed the examples on how to allow a trusted IP range and to allow bi-directional traffic on my various Kodak apps - but still nothing works.

    As soon as the ESET firewall is disabled, my Kodak printer shows up. When I re-enable the firewall, it becomes disconnected.

    I created a custom rule where the traffic was bi-direct, allowed, TCP and for all profiles. I changed the LOCAL allowed port range to be from 49000 to 50000 and teh remote to be from 9000 to 9200 to correspond with my netstat readings :

    Code:
    TCP    192.168.1.198:49710    192.168.1.150:9100     TIME_WAIT
    TCP    192.168.1.198:49711    192.168.1.150:9100     TIME_WAIT
    TCP    192.168.1.198:49712    192.168.1.150:9100     TIME_WAIT
    TCP    192.168.1.198:49713    192.168.1.150:9100     TIME_WAIT
    TCP    192.168.1.198:49714    192.168.1.150:9100     TIME_WAIT
    TCP    192.168.1.198:49715    192.168.1.150:9100     TIME_WAIT
    TCP    192.168.1.198:49716    192.168.1.150:9100     TIME_WAIT
    TCP    192.168.1.198:49717    192.168.1.150:9100     TIME_WAIT
    
    where 192.168.1.150 is the mac addy of my Kodak wifi printer and *.198 is my local PC.

    But it still isn't working.

    WHat else am I missing? It's definitely the ESET firewall. Just cant see what in it is now blocking my printer?

    In the firewall Zones, have you added your subnet (192.168.1.0 / 255.255.255.0) to the 'Trusted zone' and 'Addresses excluded from active protection (IDS)' ?
