Question about Kyocera FS-1118MFP Laser Printer
Hi, I've got this printer installed on the network. I managed to get the drivers installed form the Kyocera site. Printing works fine. I tired to install both Twain / WIA drivers for the scanner. I got WIA driver installed, but does not seem to find network printer. The Twian drivers I eventually got one installed, but in the control-panel driver list it says 'Device not started'. I've tried, updating, uninentalling reinstalling but with no joy. I imagine this is because its over network, rtaher than USB. Then I found the document on the Kyocera site of how to configure the scanner for network use. http://cdn.kyostatics.net/dlc/gb/documentation/installationmanual/ns-fs-1118mfp-ig-uk.-downloadcenteritem-Single-File.downloadcenteritem.tmp/NS-FS-1118MFP-IG-UK.pdf Seems like you can create accoutns on the printed via the webserver console. I enabled SMB, then set up an account called 'PC' where I specifed my PC name as the server name, and an existsing network share as the path - under the SMB section. I followed the advice on scanning from the MFP directly, selecting the destination - PC, and then tried to send. The scan occurs, but produces an error on sending. It then prints a summary page says that an error occured but not whatthe error was - so I have no way to debug it. It seems to me that some 'authentication' to connect to my PC is missing. Surely it needs to know a username and password to connect to on my PC. I tried specifying both a valid user on my PC as well an internal printer user that I created (but those are more to do with physical access to the printer I imagaine) rather than authentication to a SMB location. How on earth can I make this work? The document above suggests it should be possible. Also then considered even maybe using a physical print server, but the descriptions appear so vague. Many say spports Multi Function - for most devices, but hard to find a dveice list or know that it support Win7. Can anyone tell me of one of these print servers that actually works for this device on Win7? Also, how do these print-servers work, since I will still have to address the printer as if it were a nework printer even though its connected from the print-server to the device as USB. Does the server effectively install a generic device driver for MFP's to allow this functionality to work and thn somehow convert that to send over TCP/IP back to the computer? Would I have to have some kind of a bridge driver installed on my PC to understand that message? Regards Grant
