unable to enable HP Web Services

HP Recommended
HP Envy Photo 6255
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

My printer does support webservices. I am trying to sign up for instaInk.


I am unable to enable web services. I was told by tech support after troubleshooting that I needed to contact my ISP to open ports. My ISP informed me that there are no blocked ports for my service. I checked my router and there are no blocked ports. I did a search online and found which provides instructions to open ports in windows firewall necessary for web services. I followed the instructions and opened ports listed. Web services and e-print still do not work. I manually printed the printer claim code and tried to enter that in my instaink account but it was not recognized because web services is not enabled.


Additionally, I have tried the instructions at

I also tried HP Print and Scan Doctor.


Please help me enable HP webservices so I can use Instaink services.
