    I receive regular warnings of a Port Scanning Attack from 10.1.1.3 which is my printer.

    Is there some way I can have the program ignore this?

    Some devices may scan remote ports which is subsequently detected by ESS as a port scan attack. I'd suggest adding your printer's IP address to the list of addresses excluded from active protection in the Zone setup.
