firewall with security suite 9.0

I have a network, a hardwired desktop to a wireless router, and an XP laptop connecting wirelessly. Unless I disable the McAfee firewall, I am unable to print from the laptop. I can't see in the McAfee networking portion where I can allow/or deny printing privileges etc., but there has to be someone out there who can help me with this issue....???

RE: firewall with security suite 9.0

How is the printer connected? To the wireless laptop, wireless to the router, wired to the router, or to the wired PC?

RE: firewall with security suite 9.0

Printer is connected to the hardwired PC, which is in turn hardwired to the wireless router.
the laptop connects wirelessly to the router, and unless I shut off the firewall on the desktop (connected to the printer) I cannot print from the laptop.
