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?
