Hi,

I've successfully print over network by following instruction from this site.
No luck in scanning over network though, when I issue 'netdiscover --all --scanner' command, no scanner is found.

SCX-4216F is connected to D-Link DPR2000 print server (snmp enabled).
Using Ubuntu 12.04, installed samsungmfp-driver and samsungmfp-network version 4.00.39-1 from repo.
Result from lsusb command (when connected via usb): 0x04e8 0x3409

Just tried steps from this link however got same result: http://www.webdesignblog.asia/operating-systems/linux-os/samsung-scx-3405w-network-printer-scanner-installation-configuration-on-ubuntu-12-04/

Any ideas anybody?

Thanks

My guess (and it is a guess) is that the problem is something about the network configuration of the printer server, either a firewall issue or a network segment issue.  Have you tried the various troubleshooting steps for network scanning?

Hi!

Thanks for looking at this. As far as I know Ubuntu is not configured with firewall on by default, and no other firewall installed either.

The print server is configured with basic networking, got reserved IP 192.168.1.3 from DHCP, the rest are all default config. I used nmap utility to port scan the print server successfully, no firewall.

However this got me thinking to try remove the print server, then connect the printer to pc and share it, see if network scanning works or not. I think I've done it before unsuccessfully, but will try again anyway.

I'll post the outcome later after done.

Thanks :))
