Hi Experts,

I have a Dell 3115cn Scanner that I am able to scan to my Windows 10 laptop.

I had to turn Firewall off for this to work.

Now I need direction on how to let the scanner pass the Firewall?


I have:
Kaspersky Internet Security installed.

Since you are using port 139 for the scanner, you should make sure that port is open in the firewall. I don't have Kapersky, so I cannot walk you through the steps. However, this link shows how to get to it. Make sure port 139 is set to "Active".

Hi and thanks for helping.

none of that link worked.

I have Kaspersky 2016

I found:
Open Kaspersky
Select settings
Select Protection
Select Firewall
Select Network
Leave Internet set to "Public Network" (do not change)
Double click on "Home Network" and change from "Public Network" to "Local Network"
Close

Go to:
Network and sharing center
Select: Turn Off Network discovery
Select: Turn Off file and printer sharing
Save Changes

Works great...

Want to make note case anyone else needs help Thanks....

Thanks for the update Amour. Make sure you accept your comment as the answer.

Weird that Kaperski had the home network set to "public"; that could be a security risk. And, I have had great trouble (of a different kind) with network discovery in Win10 (not Win7).
