Scanner Server (Scan to PC) / Re: Scan to PC in Linux (Development)

Hi guys,

First of all, thank you for this awesome work. Unfortunately it doesn't work with my printer c1860 series, and I suspect a tiny detail to be the source of this trouble.

Here is what show the logs :

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/", line 1439, in <module>
    SERVER_INSTANCE_ID = registerServer()
  File "/usr/bin/", line 208, in registerServer
    raise NameError("Error registering server: "+result)
NameError: Error registering server: <HTML>

I am not at all into programming but I had a look into /usr/bin/
On line 201 (v. 0.4.5) I saw something strange "c:\IDS.XML" which looks like a Windows path to me (but again I am not a programmer, and this may have non incidence at all).

Anyway, I don't think this is the problem as I tried to debug on a machine running Windows.

1) First /IDS/CAP.XML is called and received from the printer
2) then an exchange is made from the GNU machine towards the printer with /IDS/ScanFaxToPC.cgi

So basically, this is all good.

So I wanted to debug the exchanges on GNU/Linux with ssldump on port 443 as https is forced by the printer either through the Samsung programs on Windows or through a simple browser. Surprise, no packets were intercepted. With tcpdump I discovered only http exchanges are made between my GNU box and the printer.

So I think the problem lays here. For registration, the printer forces the client to use https while the script keeps calling on http as it is unable to switch. I have no idea how to change that.

Eureka !! I changed two lines in /usr/bin/ :

Line 154: h = http_client.HTTPSConnection(host, 443)
and line 388: capxmlfile = urllib2.urlopen('https://%s/IDS/CAP.XML' % REAL_SCANNER_IP)

It's not elegant but now registration works.

I then encountered the problem described by Metafa666. So I went to /etc/samsungScannerServer.conf and uncommented the first line. No more SIZE2SANE error.

But unfortunately this is the end of the road for me, as when I try to scan to my Ubuntu server I encounter an error previously exposed by Secret :
