Re: Networking and scanning?

Go to the compuetr that the device is directly hooked up to.  Go to your mycomputer and right click on the scanner, and click on the sharing link.

You might also access it from the printers control panel.

How do i setup scanner from my machine to my laptop? please start from step 1 including cable connectios and scan to folder instructions. I am using windows 8.1 pro

Before you even start, your machines "Network Support" firmware needs to be up to date to be able to connect to a Windows 8.1 PC.
Secondly your machine has to be networked. No USB scanning supported on Ricoh Devices. Create a shared folder on your C: drive called "scans". Share so "everyone" can access the folder. On the MP2852 select scanner mode and tap the block with "Prg Dest" on the screen. Select Folder and Browse for your PC. Enter your PC Username and Password when asked. Find your shared "scans" folder, select it and then tap OK on the screen. Next enter your name and save. You should be good to go. Keep in mind anti-virus and firewalls can block it. Also ensure your PC is part of a "Home Group" otherwise you will not find your PC when you browse from the MP2852. If your PC is not in a "Home Group" then you can just create a "Home Group" under your "Network and Sharing Center" and while you are there ensure that "Password Protected Sharing" is switched off under your "Advanced Sharing Settings" also found in your "Network and Sharing Center".

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.

I need to make the scanner available on the network, the printer is networked OK but can't seem to figure it out. Can you help

Need to know what printer and how it's hooked up.
For instance, if it's an all in one printer (epson or HP etc) and it's hooked up USB to one computer and shared across the network, you can't share the scan capability across the network.
What yu'd have to do is scan to the computer that it's hooked up to, placing the scans into a folder that is shared across the network so anybody can access it.

If it's a network capable scanner with it's own Ethernet connection, then the process can be vastly different, but the scan function should be sharable across the network.

How can I set-up my Lexmark printer wirelessly? I seem to have loss my manual. Help!!!!

Wireless networking your printer or scanner may sound difficult, but newer machines are making it easier to do.

The first step is to get your home wireless network configured properly. Bradley Mitchell, the Guide to Computer Networking, has a fantastic and easy-to-follow primer on networking that's a great place to start.

Microsoft also offers a handy tutorial on wireless-networking basics that will help if you're using Windows. If you're using Vista and running into problems, troubleshooting guide will help.

If you're using Windows 7 and want to share a printer on a home network, follow the links at How to Share a Printer on a Home Network with Windows 7.

Next, learn more about the basics of wireless printing with a primer from Etan Horowitz of the Orlando Sentinel.

If you're trying to use a scanner that doesn't have a network card, you can find some useful software from Remote Scan.

Unable to access scan folder of Toshiba e-Studio 232 scanner from windows 7 system

Connect to copier/scanner using web browser. Click Administration tab, and logon use the copier's username/password. Click Network Click SMB Session Click SMB Session box In section called "SMB Signing of SMB Server", the default of "If client agrees, digital signature is done for communication" needs to be changed to "Digital signature isn't done for communication for the server" Click Set button at top, then Save button, and the copier will reset.

alright follow these steps to properly configure the scanner on a network. first of all you need to make sure you have the proper drivers for the scanner. second, you need an IP, Subnet mask, and gateway that are all STATIC, not DHCP. you need to make sure that the folder you are trying to scan to is shared out correctly, and the scanner has full access rights to the folder, meaning a user name and password. if the folder is not shared out you will not be able to push a scanned image. any other questionns just let me know.

hi there,

Because printers and networks vary, the best instructions for setting up and networking your printer should be in its users manual. Also, your network-ready printer may have come with installation software that can help you share the printer over the network.

There are three main steps you need to take when networking a printer, including the following: Enable the File And Printer Sharing setting, Make the printer available to all users, and Direct PCs to the printer.

For detailed instructions on sharing printers at home, please refer to the "Get Your House In Order" article in the "See Also:" section below.

For detailed instructions on sharing printers in a small business, please refer to the "Select & Share The Right Printer For Your Small Business"

Connecting printer to SBS (Small Business Server)

You can physically connect the printers to the server and share it from there or leave the printers connected to your computer and have the server connect to them via a Local Port which routes to your computer!! To do the Create the local ports you'll need to 1.) share the printers on your pc 2.) Go to the server and go to printers in control panel 3.)Click on Add a new printer then next 4.)Select Local Printer connected to this computer; De-select Automatically Detect Printer 5.)Select Create new port and select Local Port 6.)In the enter a port name, enter the full network path to the printer i.e. \\your-pc-name\printer-share-name click ok 7.) Select the drivers for that specific printer(if its not there click on have disk then browse to the drivers to install them) 8.) Continue through the installation until finish) 9.) Repeat steps for additional printers Keep in mind that your computer still needs to be on! You can check to see if your printer support a network card to make them fully network printer you can add them to the server this way and only the server would need to be on! Or you can also get a print server(Device that makes regular printers into network printers). Now when it comes to the scanning, i don't know of any way to share a scanner with just windows alone, but there are third party software that allows you to do that Check out There are also printers that sorta do the scanners sharing by automatically scanning and putting files in a designated area on the network! Hope this was helpful regards, babb
