Re: cannot activate scan to computer HpB210

Tell me about your router brand/model.

 

What operating system?

Router is a Belkin F5d7230-4. I'm running Vista on aThinkpadR61i

 

It's actuall the WIA scan that gets the error.

OK, does scanning from your PC work?  Does scanning from the printer work immediately after scanning TO the PC?

OK, have you disabled your security system's firewall and tried again?

 

You could also try this utility.

thanks,

That is  the scan utility that gives the error. Firewall is set to allow all HP programs. I have also tried with the firewall completely off.

I cannot scan from the scanner because it says the "Activate scanner to computer" is not activated.

Thanks

Did you set your security system's firewall or Windows firewall?

Re: cannot activate scan to computer HpB210

Not a firewall setting on my version of AVG. I tried disableing the AVG 'online shield' and 'resident shield' and the connect to scanner would still not connect. I uninstalled and reinstalled the hp driver software and I'm still getting the error when trying to establish the 'connect to scanner' application. The printer is on the wireless network as i am still able to print.

thanks
