Question about Samsung SCX 4200 All-In-One Laser Printer
Hi! I'd like to share my SCX-4200. We have a domain with 10 PCs, a Samba 3 domain controller with CUPS (Debian Etch). I connected the 4200 to the Samba server, added the printer in CUPS without problem. I selected RAW queue. I want printing only from Windows clients. On the client (WinXP Prof SP2) installed the printer driver from the CD, then added the printer as a new network printer. I can print to the shared SCX-4200 without any problem, but cannot scan or copy from my WinXP PCs. If I try something related with the scanner --> error "The device isnt connected" etc. How can I use the SCX-4200 scanning and printing features from the network? Thanks Rob PS: sorry for my poor English
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?

Tips for a great answer:
The first time you connect to a network, you'll be asked if you want to turn on sharing between PCs and connect to network devices such as printers. Your answer automatically sets the appropriate firewall and security settings for the type of network that you connected to. You can turn sharing on or off at any time.
Press and hold or right-click the network you're connected to, then tap or click Turn sharing on or off.
Menu used to turn sharing on or off
Do one of the following:
Choose Yes, turn on sharing and connect to devices for home or small office networks, or when you know and trust the people and devices on the network. This setting allows your PC to connect to devices on the network, such as printers.
Choose No, don't turn on sharing or connect to devices for networks in public places (such as coffee shops or airports), or when you don't know or trust the people and devices on the network.
Turning sharing on prepares your PC for sharing files and devices on a network. For more information about sharing with other people on your network, see Sharing files and folders on a network or a shared PC.
The network sharing setting is only available for WiFi, Ethernet, VPN (non-domain) and dial-up (non-domain) connections. It's unavailable for domain networks. On VPN or dial-up connections, you must connect to the network first, then press and hold or right-click the network name to change the network sharing setting.
Turning on sharing changes your firewall settings to allow some communication, which can be a security risk. If you know you won't need to share files or printers, the safest choice is No, don't share or connect to devices.
Choosing No, don't turn on sharing or connect to devices blocks the following applications and services from working: PlayTo, file sharing, network discovery and automatic setup of network devices.
Network discovery is a setting that affects whether your computer can see (find) other computers and devices on the network and whether other computers on the network can see your computer. It's one of several settings that are turned on when you turn on network sharing. You can turn network discovery on or off independently of network sharing, but we discourage this. Here's why. If you're connected to a network in a public location and you decide to turn on network discovery but leave network sharing turned off, the network discovery setting will be on for every public network you connect to from then on. This wouldn't be safe. That's why we recommend using the network sharing setting instead.
However, if for some reason you need to turn network discovery on or off independently of the network sharing setting, here's how to do it:
Tap or click Turn on network discovery or Turn off network discovery, then click Save changes. You might be asked for an admin password or to confirm your choice.
