I use Vista OS.The firewall intermittantly blocks my printer & scanner (especially on start-up. They are connected via a Belkin USB hub & via a wireless router to the lap-top. If I switch the firewall off all is ok. How can I instruct it to allow these two Canon Apps function?wall on!!!
Sometimes it works with the firewall operating. Never happened on old machine with XP!

Thanks Graphicool1 I think that;ll do the trick. If not I'll just have to switch the firewall off when scanning/printing!
