If this is XP and you are using the Windows firewall then...

Right-click on My Network Places
Select Properties
Double click Local Network Connection or Modem
Click Advanced
Uncheck Internet Connection Firewall

And don't forget to turn the firewall back on after you're done printing.

If you send me messages, per Bleeping Computer's Forum policy, I will not engage in a conversation, but try to answer your question in the relevant forum post. If you don't want this, don't send me messages.
