Accessing wifi printer

What are the steps to allow access to a wifi printer uder the home firewall setting?

 

I have a canon mx880 with a wifi connection. I can acces the printer if I select the Allow All firewall selection. I want to set up the Home firewall to allow access to the printer.

 

Can someone point me to the information needed to do this.

 

Thanks

    Indeed. Any kind of firewall just block ports that's it. Any every device/service/application like a wifi printer has its own port number used.

     

    So you need to get the port number being used and whitelist it in the firewall.
