Scanning with a printer on a print server

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have a canon MP250 on my server (which, atm, only serves as a print server). I can remote into the server and scan fine, but my client PC's don't have a scan option. I can print just fine from all machines, but not scan. All are running Win 7 Ultimate. I have reinstalled drivers on client PC's just now to no avail.

Here is a link to the product page at canon if anyone can find any pertinent download that may enable this function

Thanks OCNers!

I wish I had a constructive suggestion, but with our MP495 that's connected to our network via wifi, all of our computers have the scan functionality.

In device manager on your client computers, is a scanner (or rather, is scanning functionality enumerated) in the MP250 device properties?

Do you need to separately add/install the scanner as a device on the client computers?

EDIT--can you scan from outside of Canon's software on the host computer? Like if you go through windows devices?

It's actually not even listed at all. Odd.

I installed the printer driver, but I can't find a separate scanner driver.

Yea, if I go to devices and printers, I can right click and select scan only if I am in a remote desktop session in the server. The same does not work on client machines.

That option is greyed out.

you can try installing this to one client first and see if it works.

I tried that already and it doesn't work. It doesn't find the printer, nor does it contain the option to search for a network printer.
