For PCs the manual recommends using the parallel cable and for Apple computers to use the USB cable.
If the Toshiba does not have a parallel printer port then try using the USB cable.
For a manual for your scanner go to this WEB site.

Usb 1.0 or usb 2,flatbed scanner compatability

Find a USB device, such as a memory-stick, that is "USB 2.0" and connect it to a USB port. If Windows XP pops-up a window ("this device will perform better when connected to a USB 2.0 port"), then you have connected it to a USB 1.1 port.

Yes, you can connect a scanner, if it has a USB connection. Not all laptops have a parallel-port ("old-style" printer) port, but some scanners require a parallel-port.

Xerox 6180 MFP port set up problem

I have the solution. I own a Xerox 6180 MFP, and I could not send over port 25. My ISP said they weren't blocking port 25, and my web server wasn't supposed to be blocking port 25, but something in EXIM (that has something to do with email) was blocking it, WHICH CAUSED THE PROBLEM. The solution is:
For your SMTP login name and password don't enter your email address's u/p. Instead enter your website's cPanel (or whatever) u/p. For me it's the same u/p I use to log into to control my website. THEN choose "SMTP AUTH (Login)" as the 'email send authentication' type.
I'm still using ports 25 and 110. And I still am entering my SMTP server address as whatever I use ( The only thing I'm really changing is the above. Other than that, follow Xerox's instructions to do it over port 25.
Oh. And for your POP3 server address, in case you don't know, don't enter For some reason you gotta just enter here (where 'yada' is your domain).

You can only do scanning on an M20i with a USB or parallel cable. That machine does not support scanning via an ethernet cable.
