Summary

It seems that it is possible to lock out your printer from the network by opening a few connections and keeping them open.

Insight

Insight

Note that the AppSocket protocol is so crude that the scanner cannot check if it is really running behind this port. This means a different service might be running behind this port and could have stopped responding as well.

Solution

Solution

Change your settings or firewall your printer.
