WINDOWS 10: SCAN TO SMB/ FOLDER NOT WORKING




WINDOWS 10: SCAN TO SMB/ FOLDER NOT WORKING

The first thing to do is to try and set network type to home or work
turn file sharing on
turn network discovery on
turn password protected sharing off
put in exceptions for helper programs in firewall
use either port 139 or 445 and put in firewall exceptions for them
if issues occur be explicit
ex xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:139
ex xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:445

if unable to change network type use the following
4 WAYS TO CHANGE NETWORK TYPE

if that does not work then
your next step is to check for windows update issue
for example with windows 8
update rollup 2887595
fixes issues with smb

or

windows 7 patch that breaks windows 7
KB3161949 June 2016 Update

for windows 10 you might have an issue because its being constantly updated…
guest access to smb without login or password upgrade fix might be causing the issue…

the following patches have been known to break smb in windows 10
KB3185614
KB3189866
but there may be more…

if worst comes to worse…
you might want to just install a windows 7 box that does the scanning and share the folders…

or if you are feeling lucky…
try rolling back updates and/or builds

and then you turn off windows updates
this can help…
