The solution is using the software smarthur3 that come with the CD, then download smarthur4 on both server and client computer......


smarthur3 will run as network, and use smarthur4 to scan.

on client in smarthur4, under scan , then setting select the network name.

everything work now....

smarthur4 even have pdf format.

I can't found any scanner driver.....i can print but scann....it's impossible SCX-4300


What OS are you running? I don't see any full-feature software but the Samsung site lists a print driver, a scan driver, a universal print driver and a universal scan driver for Windows 2000 through Win7 x64. Similar drivers are also available for the Mac OSX. I'm not certain of the features in the "unified driver" for Linux. The full-feature software is available for Windows.

To find these drivers, go to http://www.samsung.com/ph/consumer/monitor-peripherals-printer/printer-multifunction/mono-multifunction/SCX-4300/XSS/index.idx?pagetype=prd_detail&tab=support . Click on the Downloads tab and then select Driver. The windows files are all .exe files.

For the SmartThru software go to the above link and select Software instead of Driver. With this software, you will be able to launch a scan from the printer if the monitoring program is running. You should be able to start a scan from the computer with any OS and the Samsung drivers.

Windows XP, Vista and 7 can all acquire scans with Windows software. You can use Paint in all three (File > Import from Camera or Scanner > New Scan). Vista and Win7 add Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan). Vista came with Photogallery and it acquires scans like Paint. (You can download it for XP or Win7.) The Mac also can acquire scans with included software.

One issue that can cause a scanner problem is a bad cable. Scanning requires bidirectional communication with the printer and thus may fail when the printer works. Replace the data cable and make sure to use a direct connection (no USB hub or print server) if you can launch the scan but then it stops.

I hope this helps.

Print jobs get stuck in the queue


OK - all the answer posts on HP sites, Experts Exchange and MS have been a joke to this problem so far. HP 10xx series LaserJet printers do not work (well) in a shared environment. I have found two solutions to this problem. If you really don't understand shares/printing/services/firewall exceptions - don't bother trying this - buy a networked printer when the toner runs out of the HP10xx.
If you want to spend a few hours or about $100 for a print server/NAS device, read on... I HAVE an HP1022 shared on a Windows XP Pro SP3 machine serving as a print server to a Vista laptop, a Windows 7 desktop and a Mac-Mini running OS X 10.6.x. ALL are working.
1. Buy a network print server device (or a NAS device with an included print server - I picked up a Buffalo LS-CHL 1TB and it worked out of the box. I AM NOT ENDORSING BUFFALO NAS servers, they get horrible reviews and you may end up having the same problem down the road due to the NAS device) In this case, your print clients (Win7, Vista, XP, MacOS X) can use a traditional SMB Windows client to print or the BETTER solution is to use the print services for Unix client that comes with Windows but is not installed by default. Both clients work, you may have fewer problems down the road using the Unix (LPR) client. See http://www.alexfalkenberg.com/2009/10/06/linkstation-windows-printing-problem-solved/ This is an excellent article on the Buffalo - BUT THE SOLUTION works in a native windows environment as well.
2. Build on the idea from number 1 above and INSTALL the LPDSVC (friendly name TCP/IP print services) on the machine with the printer LOCALLY attached through USB. You will also have to open up some firewall ports on the machine you are using as a print server if you have one running... I used a program exception (C:\WINDOWS\system32\tcpsvcs.exe) but you could lock this down to 1 TCP port if you wish - I think TCP 515 but you'd better check on this one...) Share the printer as normal. Next install the "Print Services for Unix" CLIENT on the machines you want to connect to the printer remotely from. When you connect to the printer share from the clients, select a LOCAL port, create a NEW PORT, select LPR, use the hostname or the IP of your machine acting as a print server and the NAME OF THE SHARE as the queue. (I don't like to have spaces in my share names, so I used HPLaserJet when I set up the share and description.) You will HAVE TO INSTALL THE RIGHT Printer driver locally on each client. This might be easiest just plugging in the printer with a USB cable since the HP printer driver is an installer as well and wants it to be connected locally unless you can extract the driver...)
Sorry I can't give more details than this. If you don't get the jist of what I am saying above. Don't try it. Give up and call the plumber.

Computers not sensing scanner via LAN


Scanning over network usually requires software to connect. First go to the drivers page as below. Windows Vista | Windows XP, download the latest drivers (the Full Feature one) as well as the firmware update for the OfficeJet. Plus the "Update" files that's dated newer than the Drivers.
Upgrade the firmware (this will reset all custom settings in the OfficeJet like IP address) with a USB connection.
Run the full feature installer and if there is an option for Networked OfficeJet, then tick it. Also you may need to change/disable firewall for the installer to pick up the networked OfficeJet.
Scanning over the network usually connects with a customized TCP port. And most likely the Windows "Scanners and Cameras" will not pick up network scanners unless it's been defined manually (installer can do this part).

Samsung scx-4100 scanner error - cannot detect device "Samsung.."


I just fixed this problem for my computer. Try installing the scanner driver. You probably have the printer driver installed but the scanner driver is needed for Smarthru

Cannot print on shared printer


I had the same problem with HP 1018 printer, when I had two computers connected to a domain and had Windows XP SP3 on them and when I shared the printer on one of them - I could only print from the network if the user belonged to the Local Administrators group on the host/server computer. Once the network user is removed from Administrators - the print jobs are stuck in print queue. I used the "HP LaserJet Host Based Print Driver Package" that is on HP web site for HP laserjet 1018 printer.
Then I tried to use a different driver for that printer and was successful with driver for HP LaserJet 1020. After forcing that printer to use the 1020 drivers, the regular users were able to print to that printer.

Scx-4521 imaging device driver, scaner


Try changing your usb printer cable with a different brand. I have had lost of machine not wanting to scan because of faulty usb cables, even though you can print it refuses to scan. If this still is not helpful, try downloading the latest drivers from samsungs website.

Sharing with Samba/Cups


To my best knowledge, you cannot. The drivers and scanning software on your unit are not designed to support network protocols. Your unit does not come with an Ethernet adapter and it is not available as an option. When Samsung fits an equipment with a network card (such as the SCX-4521FN) the drivers and software are enabled for network use. By the way, your toner will only last for 3,000 pages. Are you sure it's a good idea to share such such a small unit over a 10 PC network?
