Overview
This function sends the scanned file to a folder that is shared out on the network. SMB
stands for Server Message Block and is a protocol used for file and printer sharing by all
major operating systems today. SMB shares are normally visible by browsing the network,
though actual access to the shares is normally restricted by the use of permissions.
In order to successfully configure SMB scanning, the following information
is required:
1
The IP address or hostname of the computer or server where the scans are being
delivered to.
2
The name of the network share where the scans are being delivered to.
3
The log in credentials (user name and password) for the computer or server where
the scans are being delivered to.
NOTE If you are configuring Scan to SMB on an end users computer you will need
access rights to share a new folder. You will also require the end user to input their
computer log in details (user name and password) as part of the configuration. You
should not ask the end user to disclose their log in details.
If the shared folder resides on a network server then you may need to assist the
network administrator on how to configure the MFD. It will be the network
administrator’s responsibility to:


Create the shared network folder structure.

Map the shared drive to the end users PC so the end user can access their scanned jobs.
Provide administrators credentials (user name and password) in the User ID and
Password fields.

NOTE The shared folder can be anywhere on the computer such as the desktop but it is
good practice to place it in the root of C:\
2
Right click on the folder and select Properties.

Step 2: Set-up a “One touch button”

Because the MFD will have an SSL certificate enabled, a security warning may appear. It is
safe to proceed so if you are using the Windows Explorer browser, click on the link as shown
above.
NOTE Other web browsers will display a different warning page, see page 6 for screenshots
of two other popular web browsers.

10 Host Address: This is the IP address or host name of the computer or server that you are
scanning to – not the IP address of the MFD.
The setting for Host Address will depend on the type of machine you are scanning to:

End users computer
Most end users computers are configured with DHCP meaning they could receive
different IP address every day. In such cases you should use the computers host
name and remember to tick the box Please check to enter host name.
NOTE You can find the host name with the ipconfig/all command.

Server
Most network servers are configured with static IP addresses in which case the
servers IP address can be entered.
NOTE The server host name can also be used if required.

11 For File Path, the name must be exactly the same as the shared folder name.
12 For User ID and Password, these are the credentials used to log into the computer or server.
13 Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the [OK] button to save the configuration
details.
If you need to enter additional address book accounts click on [Continue Registration]

Notes:
Scan to SMB may require Firewall settings to be changed to allow Inbound connections from
the MFD through SMB ports on the Destination computer or Server .
The ports that can be used by SMB are:
Directly over TCP, port 445
On UDP ports 137, 138 & TCP ports 137, 139 (NetBIOS over TCP/IP)
If scanning fails the first thing to check is that these ports are open.
