Mac OS 12 - Avast VPN - I can't access my Wireless Printer
« on: December 02, 2019, 12:30:54 AM »
Hi,
I searched the forums but couldn't find any similar problems or answers...
With Avast VPN enabled, my computer can't find my printer. Do I need to Disable Avast in order to print, or is there another way to solve this problem?
Thanks.

Hi,
you can access a local network with VPN enabled, but only with an IP address. If the printer is accessed by your computer using DNS or discovered by i.e. Bonjour protocol, it won't work due to performance restrictions in the operating system.

I have same problems. My solution was a disabled VPN and change it on another. Like in this article about Best VPN for UK – United Kingdom VPN | Webguidevpn
