1. Inputting the User in the Dell Laser Printer 2145CN Address Book for Network Scan Set-Up

The 2145cn printers have a feature called the Embedded Web Service (EWS) which allows the user or system administrator to access the printer remotely, using a network connection, to monitor or change printer settings.

To access the EWS, open an Internet Explorer window and enter the IP-address of the printer within the URL address line, press Enter on your keyboard or click the GO symbol in Internet Explorer.

The Home Page of the printer should display as shown in the following image. In the top margin area, click the link Machine Settings:

After the Machine Settings page opens, click the SMB Setup link:

Click on the "Server List" link, then click on "Add" to add a new computer to scan to:

Enter the corresponding information into the Address Book as described below:

  1. Index: This is the number assigned to this given machine. This is one unique way you can determine from the printer's Operator Panel that the scan will be sent to this computer. This field is not editable.
  2. Alias for the Setup: Enter a Name for this address book location. This is also the name the will appear on the printer LCD display. The example used here is "7 Test".
  3. IP Address or Host Name: Enter only the IP-address of the recipient PC where the scan is being sent as found in previous steps.
  4. Server Address and Port: Enter only the IP-address of the recipient PC where the scan is being sent for Server Address. The default SMB port number is 139; but a customer may use any SMB port specified between 1 and 65535.
  5. Share Name: This field will be for the name of the share you gave your folder. In this example, we used the share name "Scans".
  6. Anonymous Box: If Anonymous login is allowed, you can check this box and skip lines 7-9.
  7. User Name: Enter the User Name of the user account on the recipient PC or Server where the scan is being sent.
  8. User Name: Enter the User Name of the user account on the recipient PC or Server where the scan is being sent.
  9. User Domain: Enter the domain the computer is on, or push the space bar one time if there is no domain (this field cannot be left blank, so hitting the space bar tells the printer there is no domain).
  10. Scan File Folder: This field will typically be left blank. What could be put here is any folder directly inside of the share folder you want the scans saved to. For example, if you created a folder called "Bob" inside of the "Scans" folder, you could type in "Bob" in this field and the scans would then be sent here. This is good for multiple users wanting to scan to a central location and only one share folder has to be created.
  11. Scan Filename: The name of the file that will be saved to your computer.
  12. Filing Method: How files will be saved if the filename already exists (overwrite, change name, etc). Click Submit to save the address book entries.

To Test scan functionality:

  • Place an object in the scanner glass (or in the ADF). On the printer control panel, press the Scan button.
  • Hit the Right Arrow key until you reach Scan to SMB and hit *.
  • Choose the destination name you would like to send the scan to and hit *.
  • Choose the File Format and Multipage settings you would like and hit * to complete the scan.
  • The object should be scanned and sent to the recipient PC or Server folder specified by the Share Name field.
  • Navigate to that folder and open the image using your favorite image viewing or editing software.

For instruction on setting up shared folders please see article:

More info can be found in the 2145cn User’s Guide.
