I have your basic wireless network setup at home, all setup with the same workgroup. But I cannot use the printer or do any network sharing such as files w/out turning off my ZoneAlarm firewall on the desktop and laptop. How do I configure to accept my laptop, desktop and print server?
The easiest way is to go to Firewall -> Zones on the zonealarm screen and add a zone (IP address) as ‘trusted’. You will need to get the assigned IP address for the printer and other attached devices. Typically your wireless router assignes IP addresses in a range you can specify. You can add this whole range as a zone in Zonealarm to cover anything attached, both wireless and wired (Add -> IP Range).
