Scanning off of a network printer.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Well I am trying to see if this is possible, after some google searching I seen some people that said that it was possible but didn't give a solution. So what I have is a windows home server that I also use as a print server, I have all of my networked computers working fine to print from it but to scan you need the hp software for the printer. Well needless to say the software wont run on the home server being it is built off of windows server 2003 so it says that it is an unsupported os. So I was wanting to do it so that I could access the printer for scanning from my laptop or my desktop through my network. It is really annoying to have to unplug the usb from the server and plug it into another computer so that I am able to scan a picture.

So the printer is a HP deskjet f4480 which is connected to a whs machine. If there is any other information that would be needed I will gladly find it out. Thanks in advance.

Hey I got that printer but mines white lol.

I had the same problem I wanted to share the printer and all its features out accross my netowork including laptop's. What I did to fix it was I bought a belkin usb hub for £20 and pluged it into that installed the software onto all the computers and it does everything perfectly. But it has 5 ports so you can plud hdds in and share them accross the network very handy
