    Question Wireles printer and firewall

    Hello. Sorry my terrible english, but i try to explain my situation.

    I have Wifi printer, HP DeskJet F4500. If suse firewall is on, yast doesnt see that printer. If i turn firewall off, Yast sees printer and install it just fine. Problem is, that when i start firawall again, yast denies whole printer and turn it off mode in Yast.

    What firewall rule i have to make to get this work?

    What version of Opensuse are you using and what desktop.

    If you go into your firewall settings in YAST you should be able to create a rule.

    Are you using 'hp-wificonfig' then 'hp-setup' (as root) to configure?
