Bank Protection vs Network Printer

Hi all,

 

I think I get all the network printers cut off when the bank protection is ON. Is there a way to maintain printer connection? I need them to print my transaction details.

 

Thanks!

    Banking Protection blocking network printers is a bug in the product and will be fixed in Internet Security 2014.

     

    Until that you will have to terminate (hit end button) the banking protection when you want to print.

  • Several weeks have passed and I have spent days trying to figure out why my printer suddenly stopped working. Or, to be exact, sometimes worked and sometimes not.

     

    Among other things, I purchased a new wireless router and even considered doing LAN rewiring - which would have been somewhat massive undertaking. Printer driver update was one. Switching to Chrome was another.

     

    During these weeks, I have gradually managed to eliminate possible causes of the problem and, as a final step, I came to think F-Secure as the suspect...

     

    So, the innocent looking "shall we update?" question cost me days of labour. Having been a customer for more than 10 years, I have to say that I did not expect this from F-Secure. The product was clearly not ready for release - or at least a warning for network printer users would have been appropriate.
