Solved! Go to Solution.
The McAfee UTM Firewall, as a network-level device, only deals with ports and protocols - not files and paths. The instructions from HP when making reference to files and paths are referring to to the Firewall software you may be running on the client PCs themselves.
Equally, you only need to configure rules on the UTM Firewall if the printer and the client machines are sitting on different sides of the Firewall (one external one internal, for example). So if the printer and the machine(s) you wish to print from are on the same network then you don't need to apply any configuration changes to the UTM Firewall at all.
