It seems to me you are trying to connect to the Xerox using a secure connection when the Xerox does not require a secure connetion to access the EWS. My suggestion is to remove https:// from the beginning of the URL so the only characters in the URL is the IP address itself. So instead of https://192.168.1.35 try just 192.168.1.35 and see if that gets you there. The IP referenced is a random IP address for an example. Be sure to use the IP address assigned to your printer. Hope that helps!
Good suggestion, but didn't work. However, I did get into the printer using the old ipv4 and adding a port #, in this case 339. I believe it's supposed to be 445 per the instructions; why I remembered 339 from January is unknown. Must be one of those old person things. I then was able to load the firmware update. Huzzah! Now working to get the scanning function to work. Will report back in next 24 hours on that either way.
STILL NOT WORKING: I was able to download the "software" to my PC and run the update. What came as the update was XeroxSmartStart_184.108.40.206--unsure the date on it but the system knows I have a WC6515 so I assume it contains the latest drivers. Once updated, I redid the address book using two usernames of either the IPv4 or Hostname to see which one worked. I used both Port 139 and 445 (as suggested by the on-line help guide) once each for both. Neither worked. The errors I received from the WC6515 (printed out) were:
-Completed with Error (018-755), Server connection error in SMB (for one combo of IPv4 and password)
-Completed with Error (018-505), SMB-DOS protocol error1-005 (for the other three combos of Hostname or IPv4 and password))
Therefore, I know I can update the WC6515, I know it will read scans, I just haven't figured out yet how to get scans into my PC folder. And yes, I have the correct IPv4 for the PC and the correct hostname for the PC. And, yes, I identify the correct folder to receive the scans on my PC. When it asks for password, I supplied the password/pin I use to get into my PC.
Any other suggestions?
I just spent 62 minutes on the phone with Xerox support; yes, I paid $25 because I'm out of warranty. They can't fix my problem because: I have a new W10 computer; WC6515 requires user names and W10 uses (or at least led me in setup to that) to use my live.com account as my user name. WC6515 cannot use email address, must be a user name; I don't have a W10 user name for my laptop. Now they said I have to have my local IP give me a user name before I can scan from the WC6515 to my laptop. What the heck? I have to contact my local Comcast office and ask them to set up an IP user name on my computer???
I'm not sure why they would advise you to contact your ISP for a username. You can simply go into user management and create a user name yourself to use with the Xerox.
It took me 4 hours over three days working with 5 Xerox reps to fix this.
People at Xerox support who helped the most were: Lionel and Cory; they stayed with me over 3 hours total while we tried scores of solutions.
Don't believe those at Xerox who tell you to get an ISP user name and put it in the WC6515 address book.
Key things to know:
a) this likely applies to W10 only (PC is Dell Inspiron 3576-64x) but read on as some of this may help
b) username CANNOT be an email address (mine was)
c) password for user name CANNOT be a pin (mine was)
d) folder to receive scans CANNOT have spaces or special characters in the name (mine had a space)
e) username with folder to receive scans MUST be an adminstrator
f) folder to receive scans MUST be fully shared with read/write permissions accorded the target username
g) after the WC6515 address book updated with user, username and folder info, restart the PC (assuming one has already shared the folder), only then attempt to scan
h) if while taking sharing actions, the username does NOT come up as hyperlinked (blue), try it anyway--that's when it worked
i) celebrate if it works (been trying since April [off and on] to solve this)
