My dell 3115cn will not scan to a network share properly. Here's what it happening:
Within the Web Tool for the 3115cn: Address Book - Server Address tab - Create button. I setup the server name (Server1), type (SMB), port (139), login name, Login Password, "share name", and i leave the "server path" blank. The server "share name" is something like \\Server1\docs\scanner\accounting\.
Now here's the problem: I cannot get the scanner to scan anything within a shared directory. It will scan to the root of the "docs" share, but it will not scan to any directory within that share (ie, the "accounting" share. I get a login error, but I have already verified this is not an authentication problem - the root share has the exact same permissions as this accounting directory. If I enter just the name of a root share, like say on this server "docs" it will scan and authenticate just fine, but any folder within a share, i get the same "Login Error". Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I appreciate the help everyone, but some of you are not reading the original post. The issue isn't that I cannot get the scanner to scan to a secured network location. As I stated in the original post this works just fine. The issue is that there is an apparent limitation to the location on the network it will scan to. I'm looking for someone with knowledge of how to scan to a shared folder more than 2 directories deep. I'm not trying to be rude, but if you do not take the time to properly read the post, please do not respond as you are not providing help at all.
I do appreciate the input John; I'm not being ungrateful. I appreciate anyone who takes the time to help others. But - Off-Topic threads make it hard for others to find a proper solution. If you are searching a thread for a solution to an error with a given problem, you would hope that thread would have a successful resolution to your problem, not a completely different issue. I'm trying to help the cause, I apologize of it seems like I'm tearing someone down. As an IT professional, I just know how hard it is to find a proper solution sometimes.
