I am setting up the HP8600 Officejet Premium and I am having difficulty setting up the Network Folder Setup. I am following the steps but to keep getting the message it is an invalid share when entering the MacBook Pro IP address. If I take the IP address out and enter the name I receive a connection failed message. Can someone please help me figure this out?
I am upgrading from the previous model HP8500 to the following model. Unfortunately I had problems with the Network Folder using the 8500 after I had it for 2 years and HP suggested to upgrade to the newer model.
HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus e-AiO Printer N911g Model CM750A
Operating System: MAC OSX 10.6.8

I am far from an expert in this area, but I do have a few ideas.
1. From the manual:
- Open HP Utility. For more information, see HP Utility (Mac OS X).
- Click Scan to Network Folder under the Scan Settings section, and then follow the onscreen instructions.
2. I woud go to System Preferences > Sharing and enable File Sharing. Make sure the folder you want to write to is shared with Read and Write access for Everyone.
3. In the same Sharing area, click on Options and enable sharing with SMB (Windoze network file protocol).
Am I even close?
