struggling to set up scanning to my pc, can't work out how to do it.
Have a VersaLink C405 that I got last week - printing is fine, faxing fine, but cannot scan.
From looking through here, in handbook (not that great imo), and google searches I have tried to make an address book entry for the PC I want to scan to, and a folder that I have shared - is this via the SMB field?
No idea what info needs to be input for it to work though, and can't find any guides that explain this accurately
Any help is appreciated
Sorry - forgot to add: windows 10 home, version 1703, os build 15063.608, 64 bit

IP of PC = Click on your start menu, type CMD and hit the Enter key. Type ipconfig in the new window and hit Enter
Find the IPv4 address and put it in the first field
Now, we need the Share
Click on the Start menu and this time type 2 back slashes and the IP address found in the above and hit Enter
(In my case it is Start > \\192.1638.2.36 > Enter
In my case, I will find "Scans" and "Users", and I want to send them to Scans
So now I type Scans in the box for the Share
Document path is not needed, leave it blank
Login name is finicky, format it like it is found here (in the brackets), just right-click your shared folder in Windows and go to Properties, get to the point in the screenshot and add your username you use to log on and make sure it has Full control, then type in the username as it exists within the brackets
