    • hpoews01.exe

    • hpofxm08.exe

    • hposid01.exe

    • hpqkygrp.exe

    • hpqste08.exe

    • hpqtra08.exe

    • hposfx08.exe

    • If the HP software installed on the computer is version 10.0 or newer, find the hpiscnapp.exe file.

    • If the HP software installed on the computer is version 9.0 or older, find the hpqscnvw.exe file.

  5. Open the C:\windows\system32 directory, and then find and make a note of or copy the file path for each of the following programs:

    • hpzwiz01.exe

    • hpznui01.exe

  6. Open the firewall software, and then make sure that each of the programs displays in the list of trusted or allowed programs. If any of the programs do not appear in the list of trusted or allowed programs, add the missing programs to the list manually.

    NOTE: The name of the list might vary, depending on the firewall program.
  7. If the firewall software has different trust levels or requires specific permission for a program to access the Internet, make sure that you allow each of the HP programs to access the Internet freely.

  8. Click OK or Save to save the changes to the trusted or allowed program list.

  9. Follow these steps to unblock the Internet ports by creating new rules in the firewall software.

    NOTE: Each rule opens one port, so create a rule for each port.

    The HP software uses the following ports. Each port name consists of a protocol (either UDP or TCP), a number, and a connection type (either inbound or outbound). The firewall program uses each piece of this information in creating the rule to open the port.

    • UDP 427 inbound

    • UDP 427 outbound

    • UDP 161 outbound

    • UDP 139 outbound

    • TCP 139 outbound

    • TCP 9220 outbound

    • TCP 9500 outbound

    • TCP 9290 outbound

    1. Open the network or rules section of the firewall software.

    2. Create a new rule with a descriptive name. For example, unblock UDP 137 inbound is a good name for the rule to unblock the UDP 137 inbound port.

    3. If prompted to select the type of rule, select All IP Addresses .

    4. If prompted to select the type of IP address, select IPv4 and IPv6 .

    5. When you have created each rule, click OK or Save to apply the changes.

Step two: Restart the router, product, and computer

  1. After making changes to the firewall program, in the following order, turn off the computer, turn off the product, and then turn off the router.

  2. In the following order, turn on the router, turn on the product, and then turn on the computer.
