Glad you got it going. Normally Microsoft's firewall knows about file and printer sharing so I didn't ask about it when you said you went through the tutorials.

The ports you'll need to open are UDP Ports 137 and 138, and TCP ports 139 and 445.

Do I open those on the router? Cuz i find see a way to open ports in F-Secure :/

Edit: Nvm found it, will try opening on firewall

Edit 2: When I open ports in F-Secure it wont let me choose UDP/TCP, if I open ports it will open for both, shall I still do it?

If F-Secure doesn't specifiy UDP or TCP when opening a port it's probably allowing both.

Opening those ports didnt do much I still cant print out.

After I opened the ports in F-Secure, I can edit these and enable services that these ports will use, do i have to enable anything specific?

Look for any items related to file and printer sharing.

Edit: I found some info on F-Secure's support site that may help:

There's quite a bit of good info on the site. You may want to browse through it.

Glad it works now!

Obviously if the printer is on PC 1 and PC 1 is shut down, you won't be printing anything.
