My Samsung CLX-6200 Network MFP printer prints but does not scan

The Machine prints and scans from all network pcs (4 in total + Server) except one PC where the printing is ok but I cannot get the PC to scan from it. I have uninstalled, deleted all twain files from windows directory and reinstalled. I've even deleted all twain entries from the registry and reinstalled but it still wont work.

Hmm Tricky,
You could try temporaily disabling the windows firewall, and any anti-virus firewalls to see if they are blocking communications to the scanner.
(Please rate my answer thanks :)

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.

Couldn't scan from the printer to the computer


I got the same thing when I tried it on my machine. I use the SmarThru web admin program to scan to the network. It should have come with your machine on a disk. If you can't find the disk, this link should allow you to download it. http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/detail/supportPrdDetail.do?menu=SP01&prd_ia_cd=06010100&prd_mdl_cd=&prd_mdl_name=CLX-2160

Hope this helps you.

Multi-function Samsung CLX-3175 doesn't scan to PC


I had the same issue with Windows 7 64 bit.I managed to solve it by doing the following
1. Locate the scan2pc.exe program in C:\Windows\twain_32\Samsung\CLX3170 2. Right-click/properties - Compatibility tab. 3.Set compatibility to win xp. Set "Run as Administrator"
I also added the scan2pc.exe to the firewall allowed programs (did that for scanmgr.exe as well, but I don't think I needed to).
Works great now!
Good luck!!

HOW TO SCAN FROM SCAN TO BUTTON IN THE NETWORK FROM HP 2727MFP


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.

Network scanning Samsung CLX-3160FN All-In-One Printer


You have to start Smarthru 4 and use it from there. First you have to find the scanner with Smarthu then scan. Play with Smarthru and the settings in it. It took some playing with it for me to get it set right. Now it works just fine.

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?
