Windows Firewall is causing this error

First, you need to disable Windows Firewall.

Step #1 - Disable any other firewall you may have installed and stop it from loading at boot and then restart.

Step #2 - Go to the Admin Tools Folder > Services > Windows Firewall > Double click and either set it to Manual or Automatic and Save.

Step #3 - Open Control Panel > System & Security > Windows Firewall > Turn Windows Firewall On or Off > (Enable) Turn on Windows Firewall > Save

Step #4 - Click Control Panel Home > View Devices & Printers > Select/Click your Printer > Display Printer Properties > Sharing > Share this Printer > OK

Step #5 - Go Back to Windows Firewall and Turn it back off > Save

Step #6 - Go Back to Services > And set Windows Firewall to Manual

Step #7 - Restart & Re-enable your preferred firewall to start at Boot > then restart.
