Updating destination list failed
It throws several different errors (when I change settings): When I select "Dest." from the scanning screen, select SMB, and browse the network, the computer is listed.
However, when I select the computer (in WORKGROUP), it just says, "Entered path is not correct..
The default security in Windows is to disable remote connectivity to shares using accounts with blank passwords.
You can attempt to mitigate the SMB issues by disabling SMB2/3 support on the computer hosting the share.
The scanning functionality on my MP171 is not working over my network.
All the necessary configurations have been made using the web interface, but it cannot authenticate.
I did create a specific user account for the scanning - it has a password, so that won't be an issue.
I setup a ftp username/password with the home directory set to the scans folder.
I then configured the Aficio to scan via ftp rather than smb. The folks using the scanner don't even know we are using ftp rather than smb. We are still waiting on the Tech to get back to us on why SMB isn't working properly. Wes mentioned the firmware update too - I will be checking that out.
I phoned client support at Nashua (distributors of the machine), who said Windows 8 is not supported.
However, as mentioned, it doesn't work on Windows 7 either." This seems a fair attempt at providing helpful info, and even a possible solution that could help some people.
