How do I open the scan to network wizard feature. I was scannining nicely after using the ews to set up my scan to nework . Then for some reason it no longer works I still have the folders with all the nescessary permissions but can't scan from my printer to them I need to set it up again but using the same paths I get nowhere can you give some light on this for me what could be wrong  other than a faulty printer?
