Sharing a printer with a Mac


I set up my new Macbook Pro to share my HP printer that is connected to a Windows XP machine by USB. The Windows machine has F-Secure security installed. I can print from the Mac when the firewall is off, but the connection is denied when I turn the firewall on. I set rules to allow SMB, Windows printer and file sharing, and Windows network browsing. The firewall profile is set to Office, Printer/File Sharing. Can someone tell me how to set the firewall to allow the Mac to print?

    Hi martin86,

    Could you please provide more details on the firewall rules created? Such as port numbers and services.


    Best Regards,
