SOURCE: Can't print to HP 2600n over network

The LaserJet 2600N has a built-in print server and can be connected to the local network (normal ethernet cable) directly. While printer sharing via Windows should work, I found it much more convenient to access it without the need of a hosting computer - you do not need to switch on the desktop PC for printing from the Laptop, for example, its also printing faster.

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".

How to Stream Music from Windows 7 ? Share Media on Wireless Network


You can listen to your favorite music without having to carry your laptop everywhere by sharing your music library on a wireless network. Here is a tutorial to show how to stream music from one laptop to another. Using this method digital media such as videos and pictures can also be accessed from anywhere easily. By the following method you can listen music or view your photos or movies stored in your computer from different places in the network.

First we'll connect the server laptop to a wireless home network. This laptop has Windows 7 with Media player 12 and it has all the music, videos and media that you want to share. Right-click on the Internet notification area and select 'Open network and sharing center'. Now, click on 'Connect to a network' and from the list of networks, choose the preferred one and connect. Enter the secure network key when prompted.

Let's create a 'HomeGroup'. From 'Network and Sharing Center', click 'HomeGroup' and then 'What is a network location?'. You'll see a window with three options. Select the first one that says 'Home Network'. In the following window, select what you want to share and click 'Next'. Follow the onscreen instructions and Click 'Finish'.

In 'Network and Sharing Center', click 'Change Advanced Sharing Settings' and make the changes. Then go to 'Media Streaming Options' and allow people you want access to your files. Open Windows Media Player, go to 'Stream' and click 'Automatically allow devices to play my media'. The content you chose to share is now on this network.

To access this content on a client PC or laptop, first connect the machine to the same wireless network as the server laptop, using the previous procedure. Vista users can right click and directly select 'Connect to network'. Assuming that both laptops are in the same network, open Windows Media Player and see of you can find the shared server laptop in the left pane.

To find shared media on the network and to share media from the client PC, in WMP, right-click on Library and click 'Media Sharing'. Here, you can allow or deny access to other PCs and find the media you're looking for. Click 'OK' when you're done. Now, the server PC will appear in WMP and other functionalities will remain same. You're now ready to play the music which is stored on the server PC.

HP DESKJET D1360 HOW TO SET UP WIRELESSLY USING MAC


Are you trying to use MAC filtering. You would just need the MAC from the network setup screen and add it to your router/firewall.

If you are using a Mac (Apple) computer you would, providing you have a wireless adapter connected to Mac, just go into "System Preferences" and use the wizard under "Print & Scan". Make sure the networking on the printer is in on the same as your Mac.

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.

You want to undo the network? I'm not sure I understand? You want to connect the two Computers on your network? Are both computers on the same Home network? Are both computers setup properly? Sharing? Can you clarify the question?

HP1020 problem with a livebox and WIN7 configuration


I found it somewhat difficult to completely Unshare files and folders on my HomeGroup Network and still allow Printer sharing in Windows 7 (Home Premium).

Initial UnSharing still allowed files like those below to be viewed on other home network computers:

C:/Users/

{user x} (folder)

AppData (folder)

Default (folder

Public (folder)

desktop.ini (file)

Other computers on the home network could step through many levels of hiarchy in the AppData folder and appeared to have "Delete" access!!

To completely decouple the computers, I had to go through the following several different Sharing/Unsharing assignment locations, till I could completely break the linkage.

I would appreciate any clarifications or simplifications.

File UnShare Confusion on HomeGroup Network

There are several different Network Sharing/Protection assignment locations in Windows 7.

To prevent all sharing between computers on the Homegroup Network, but allow Printer Sharing:

1) Start->Control Panel ->Network and Sharing Center->Choose Homegroup and sharing options.

Uncheck sharing boxes that you don't want to share. Save changes.

2) Start->Control Panel ->Network and Sharing Center->Choose Homegroup and sharing options->Change advanced sharing settings.

Click "Turn off Public folder sharing (people logged on to this computer can still access these folders)".

3) Start->Control Panel ->Network and Sharing Center->Choose Homegroup and sharing options->Change advanced sharing settings.

Choose Media streaming options.

Click "Block All" button. Turn off. Click OK.

Anomaly Note: You have to close Control Panel and repeat all step 3 again for the change to take effect.

4) Open Windows Explorer.

a) Select "C:/", select "Users" folder with single click, then click "Share with" in toolbar.

b) Select Advanced sharing.

Under Sharing tab, select Advanced Sharing. Uncheck box labeled "Share this folder". Apply and close.

5) Open Windows Explorer.

Select "C:/Users/", select all folders and files under "Users", then click "Share with" in toolbar, then click "Nobody".

6) Verify success by going to other home network computer(s) and trying to access your files and folders. You should only be able to see there is a computer and not be able to see any folders of files.

Go to your network and sharing center. Choose homegroup and sharing options. Change advanced sharing settings. Under your home or work profile, scroll down to file sharing connections. Switch to enable file sharing for devices that use 40 or 56 bit encryption. If that does not work, under password protected sharing, select "turn off password protected sharing". This is not recommended if you use your computer in multiple locations (laptop). I have found that turning all of these features off, running a scan from the printer successfully and then turning them back on, Windows seems to be comfortable allowing the printer to connect to the computer.

File/printer sharing between mac and vista


I just now figured out a way to do this.

Just to recap - This is the problem:
Printer is hooked up to Vista PC and I'm trying to print from my MacBook Pro with Leopard.

Before doing this, be sure to check that the exceptions on your firewall are set to enable "File and Printer Sharing".

1) Go to the Vista PC as the administrator user and find the Network and Sharing Center in your Control Panel.
2) You want to turn on everything under Sharing and Discovery EXCEPT for Password protected sharing.
3) You can now close this screen and go to Printers (also in the Control Panel)
4) Find the printer you want to share, and right-click.
5) Click "Sharing"
6) You want to enable this printer to be shared on the network.
7) Click Apply and OK.
8) Go to your Mac and install the software for your printer driver on the mac. If you don't have the software, you can search the website of the vendor (aka HP, Lexmark, Samsung) to find the driver that is right for you.
9) If you allowed sharing correctly, you can go to finder and see that the vista computer will be in your sidebar.
10) Close the finder window and open up System Preferences. Select Print and Fax.
11) In the toolbar, you'll find an option for "Windows". Click it.
12) The workgroup from the Vista PC should show up. Click it and follow the hiearchy down to the printer.
13) At this point, you'll probably be prompted to use put in your mac password. Do that.
14) Seach for your newly installed printer driver in the popup window (matches up with the make and model of your printer). Hit continue and follow the directions.

15) If all goes well, then happy printing. :) If not, I would download Network Magic.

I just put this up because I just figured it out after 4 hours... and it's FREE. :)
