Allowed Zones Are Being Removed Periodically - Not Saved


I recently bought BitDefender internet security - works well so far with the following exception:

I cannot print to a printer without first adding the IP as an allowed zone. When I add my printers IP it works just fine. But, when I try to print later in the day or the next day the allowed zone has disappeared and I have to look up the IP # again and add it again. This is highly annoying. How can I have the allowed zones saved permanently?

    I've had the same problem with the zones disappearing; it was solved by removing BD entirely and re-installing it afterwards.

    Does your PC have a dynamic IP?

    If it does, you will need to also select Generic: YES under Firewall > Manage adapters > Network

    Please let me know how it goes, thank you!

  • Can paranoid mode being enabled be the cause of this by any chance? You can probably try to turn it off and see if it makes a difference skit. smile2.png
