    I have the same problem, I'm trying to set up the multifunction printer so anyone can scan directly to the netowork. No one could answer this question when I made the purchase, and the documentation was not specific. But later after installing on my network, seems that the printer needs to be installed on a PC on the domain in order for this function to work. Am I missing something?

You need to install the HP Scan software on each and every PC the MFP should scan to. In this software, you can create targets for the "Scan To" button. But: This is only useful when scanning with the ADF, because when scanning from the flatbed, you'd need for every page to hit the "Scan To"-button, press "Scan", wait for about a minute or two until the MFP has found the appropriate PC, and wait for the scan. So network scanning is unfortunately very limited with this machine.

Laserjet m1136 mfp

Have you considered installing the scan tools on the other computers? Print sharing is a function of windows; assuming that the printer is not a true network printer. Windows does not have the ability to share scanners. But this is where the software can scan the network and find a HP scanner. Also some scanners can perform a "scan-to" function; but I believe the software need to be installed on the destination computers for this to work as well.

Slow printing hp laserjet 2320 mfp

I have just come up against this issue my self, 4 x CM2320's installed on 150 PC's. After a lot of head scratching I dug out wire shark and did some network analysing as I thought it was a network issue. Turns out it sort of was, the HP software installs a custom network print port, this print port scans the network to see if the printer has changed its IP address BEFORE it tries to spool...!! The solution is to create a new network port and put the printer on that. Originally it took well over 90 seconds to print a test page, once the port was changed it dropped to 2...!!!! All PC's at this client were win XP so here's how to do it on an XP machine... Please note the printer should be on a static IP address!!!:

Start > Printers And Faxes > Right Click on the CM2320 PCL 6 printer > Properties > Ports >

If you scroll down to find the printer in the ports list you should find it has installed on a port called 'HP Colour LaserJet' or something similar.

Add Port > Select 'HP Standard TCP/IP Port' > New Port > Next > Type in the printers IP address ie (Don't tick always print to this device) > Next > Standard - Dropdown - Hewlett Packard Jetdirect > Next > Finish.

The new port will now be in the ports list, click the tick box next to it > Apply > OK. Now try and print a test page, it should only take a second or two...!!!

How to intalling network sanner HP LaserJet M1522nf MFP

If your printer is connected in the Network and you are able to print fine than there is no communication Error.
In htan case if you are not able to scan then you need to upgrade the firmware of the printer and install it and i m sure your printer wiill scan scanning on the Network.
Mentioned below is the link to download the latest firmware of the printer.

However before you start sending firmware to the printer you need to make sure that printer driver is installed on the PC.

Thanks and Regards
