So, I am not working with a m5035 MFP all-in-one unit. I have successfully gotten it to print and fax, but I am having trouble using it to scan.
I have the drivers and solution center installed, and tried to use the MFP wizard to set up the scanning features. So far, I have just gotten myself confused :/
Under the "Scan to Email" section, there seems to be a crucial step glossed over. I really have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to configuring an "email server". None were found, so I clicked the "add server" button. The wizard asks for an IP address, so I looked up aol's outbound servers' IP addresses (which I found here: ( http://www.emailquestions.com/aol/846-what-ip-addr
For some reason, it will not let me use an email address for the "email username" section, so I figured I just needed to leave off the "@aol.com" part. I have tried multiple stmp server IPs and port combinations to no avail. The wizard will finish, but there is a "could not connect to server" message when I try to scan.
I am guessing I am just really ignorant as to how email servers work and would love for someone to enlighten me on how to get this scanning feature up and running.
The other issue is setting up the "save to folder" option. I get to a point where is asks for a password to the network domain, and I just have no idea what that would be. This computer does not have a login or shared folder password, and the network passphrase (yeah, I didn't think that would work) didn't work.
Again, I am wholly ignorant to what is needed to set this up, and the documentation has little explanation.
My setup's stats:
DSL Netopia 3000 model 3347-02 wireless router
Desktop running Windows Vista Home Premium x32
HP m5035 MFP All-in-one
the all in one's network config:
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default gateway: 192.168.1.254
Primary DNS: 192.168.1.254
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
