I can't print wirelessly when Mozilla VPN is on

Enabling local network access lets your computer interact with other devices that are also connected to your local home or office network (like printers, shared folders, streaming sticks, and other connected devices) without having to turn off your VPN.

  • Local network access is not available on iOS devices.
  • You'll need to turn the VPN off first before you can change these settings and turn it back on when you're done.
  1. Open Mozilla VPN and turn it off if it's not already.
  2. Click the Settings vpn settings icon icon.
  3. Select Network settings.
  4. Put a check next to Local network access.
  5. Turn Mozilla VPN back on.

You should now have access to devices in your local network. Enabling local network access resolves most situations where users are unable to print while the VPN is active. However, if this does not resolve your issue, the only remaining option is to disconnect Mozilla VPN when you need to print, and then reconnect when you have completed printing.
