Operating System: Microsoft Windows Server 2008 (64-bit)
A Windows 10 Remote Desktop user has a new OfficeJet Pro 8710 and would like to use the scanner to scan files to a network share via Remote Desktop Server 2008 R2.
It was interesting that printing remotely worked fine without installing any drivers. We had installed the drivers on the remote Win10 PC, connected with Remote Desktop Connection, the Server 2008 R2 Remote Desktop Server detected the printer, set it up as the default printer in the user's session and printing worked.
In order to use the scanner on the Remote Desktop Server, I found:
"HP Officejet Printers - Set Up the Printer on Windows Server 2003, 2008, or 2012"
You may find the printer's Embedded Web Server (EWS) may provide the functionality - put the Officejet Pro 8710's IP address into your browser to bring up the EWS. The EWS provides options for scanning.
