Re: Extra Slashes

Very late to the party here but i wanted to share my resolution to a similar issue.

domain\user would work for testing.  but would add extra \ when the scanner was actually in use

if we use domain/user this works fine for testing and scanning.

Extra Slashes

Product Name: Other - specify product in post
Operating System: Windows 10 x64

Our AltaLink C8070 seems to have a recurring issue (actually, *MANY* of our AltaLinks have had this issue, this is just the one I'm working on now): when adding network paths, or when entering a domain & login name (anywhere we have a whack (\), really), xerox seems to read the backslash, then add a backslash.

If we're putting in a network location, "\\example\home" would become "\\\example\\home" (minus quotes in all cases) when actually scanning. When putting in a domain login, "domain\name" becomes "domain\\name" when I attempt the destination test.

On some of the machines, the location or domain login work for a random period of time, then start adding the extra whacks, making it not work.

The only post I've found on this is from 2012, here:, but adding full privileges to everyone isn't a solution I'm willing to even try (that a Xerox rep came back and said it was a good solution is mind boggling: I'm guessing/hoping that user doesn't have any confidential info! That adding full privileges to "Everyone" when we have already created a user account for scanning that has access is just confusing: is Xerox trying to brute its way in, without using the account info we've input?).

Is there a non-standard xerox only notation that we should be using?
