    Lite Snitch keeps block access to my printer. The printer is plugged into my wireless router. If I disable Little Snitch I can print. I have reset all of my rules and it is still blocked. Ive tried adding a rule to let it through but it just wont work. Any ideas?:confused:

    I've never had that problem with Little Snitch.

    Check Little Snitch Configuration (there is an app by that name, or access via MenuBar). See if any rules look like they might apply to printing.

    Nope, it's weird. I can see it terminate the request to print but it isn't listed in the rules. I even reset it so I could make all new rules and printing was blocked without it asking me or a listed rule.

    Same here. It messed up my internet and everything, so I had to uninstall it.

    It has worked great for everything else. I hate to uninstall it, when I'm probably just missing something.

    Then you were clearly using it incorrectly.

    Again, if you use the app correctly and are careful about what you decide to block/allow you will not have any issues.

    I've used Little Snitch for many years on all three of my macs without any problems. Even my girlfriends MBP has it installed and she has no issues with it.

    It really is a great app. If I were you I would just reinstall the app and start again from scratch. I'd imagine this should solve your problem.
