Printer on Network Problem with ZA Free
Just added a computer to form a network, cannot get the other computer on-line or share a printer. Am using ZoneAlarm Free version 9.2.044.000.
If anyone can explain how to set ZoneAlarm so I can get the other computer on-line and to share my printer - sure would appreciate it.

In the list of programs, make sure that spoolsvc.exe is allowed in and out to the trusted zone, and the same goes for whatever printer software you have.
In the firewall zones, make sure to add the IPs of the other computers and the printer as Trusted. If you don't want to do individual IPs, a range of IPs is OK, as is the LAN and your router. Once those things are trusted, NetBIOS packets will be permitted.
Were you able to print when ZA is not running? I assume you were.
Check your logs, and see what is being blocked.
