Second, the computer hosting the share must not have a local account with a blank password. This is not an answer.

Technically, the only question actually asked was “Any pointers? It seems to want me to enter a network path but from my very rudimentary network knowledge the printer is not networked anyway. It throws several different errors when I change settings:.

I found that you often need to enter user and password for folder on the printer itself rather than through web interface. Created a user no group with a password. Created a shared folder in the FZS Interface, gave it an alias, but it still won’t see it.

I’m updating my question with the most prominent error that appears now. The scanning functionality on my MP is not working over my network.

But both of the scanner buttons that link to the computer on the unit.

Give that a try and let us know how it worked out for you. Looks like SMB protocol is not supported and I wasn’t prepared to find a fix again. But that’s not ideal in the long term.

Once mp171spd services were deactivated the scan to folder where back and ok on these R2 servers.

I did create a specific user account for the scanning – it has a password, so that won’t be an issue. I do support work for a medium size company and I have had this issue with any Windows 7 machine primarily that have upgraded to Windows Entered path was not correct. Will give the FTP thing a try – sounds viable to me.
