HP Color Laserjet M479FDW - How to set up Scan to Network Folder? (to Raspberry Pi; Mac OS)
I'm not sure if this is possible, but I'm trying to set up my laserjet to scan to a Raspberry Pi, which has an SMB server running on it.
I've run into errors like:
Incorrect credentials. Check your username/password
Invalid shared folder check your network path and try again
Network error. Please check your connection and try again (don't recall exact wording, but similar).
I have looked at the guide on how to create network folders (I have MacOS, so I go into system preferences, sharing, enable the Windows option in advanced, and then add the folder, etc.). But I can't get it to work.
I've read things like using the IP address in the network path, and then domain/UN in the username section, but that doesn't work (or I'm doing something wrong).
Is there a way to go directly to the RPi rather than through a computer? I tried using the path of the RPi (kind of like if I was connecting to the server on a Mac or Windows computer), but the network path would be wrong.
I tried setting it up to the Public folder on my Mac mini, but I'm still getting one of those three errors (usually, it's the credentials one).
