Solved!

Scan to Network Folder Path

HP Recommended
HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M479fdw
macOS 10.15 Catalina

I setup my LaserJet printer to scan to my MacBook Pro MacOS 11 Scans folder using \\193.167.1.4\Scans as my network path to the Scans folder. It works great, but I have noticed that the IP address of my MacBook Pro changes at times. How do I avoid having to change the settings with HP Smart each time? Can I use the name of the computer in the path instead? I have tried multiple names but nothing worked. The name is Carl's MacBook. I have tried taking the ' and space out of the name, but no success. What is the best approach? I don't really care what the name of the computer is, if it works all the time. Thanks in advance.

You need to either set a static address on your Mac or set an address reservation on your router so that your Mac gets the same address everytime you connect.

Awesome. Thanks so much. Are there any downsides with doing an address reservation?
