I just can´t print with firewall on.

I've tried to configure firewall and still have the same issue.

Look in the firewall log to see what part for the printing is blocked and set the appropriate rule for it.

Whilst I don't use the avast firewall - what setting do you have for the firewall (Home/Work/etc. etc.) ?

There is something about the environment you use it in that blocks external usage. I recall something about file and printer sharing and wonder if that isn't something in the firewall settings also.
