Adjust The McAfee Firewall Settings So That It Doesn't Block the Printer

McAfee antivirus software is specially designed to keep you document and files safe and protected from the eyes of hackers. It is a complete security suite which comes with its own Firewall that acts as the filter between your computer and the network. It is the Firewall that scans all the incoming and outgoing traffic and matches with its own criteria. If the packet matches the rules of the firewall then it allows it, otherwise blocks it from accessing your internet.

It not that Firewall always work in your favor, there are times when we have observed that it blocks the access of other hardware like Printer. Whenever you try to print a document, your Windows try to set up a connection with the printer. If McAfee considers this connection as unsafe then it will not allow it. To allow your printer, print freely without any blockage you will need to open the Firewall settings for it. You will need to grant the full access to the Spooler SubSystem application and also unrestricted the ports used by the Windows File Sharing service.

Below are the given steps to make your printer work without any barrier:

·         Thereafter, click the “Ports and System Service” tab. This will open up the system services that are allowed to communicate through unrestricted port.
·         Now, place a check mark in front of “Windows File Sharing (NETBIOS) Ports 137-139," "Universal Plug and Play (UPNP) Port 5000, 1900, 2869" and "Common Operating System Ports" systems services to allow them.
