How to set 6027 to use USB by default

Jump to solution

I have the printer connected via USB to our local computer and it is also connected to our network wirelessly. But when you scan, there appears no way to have the printer use USB by default. Scanning in Acrobat has its own manual dialog box that requires several steps to set up parameters, including the port which is always defaulting to wireless. Please advise as scanning goes from 10 seconds to well over 1-2 minutes per page. Thank you.

You can't.

 

If it is on a LAN it has to give the network priority or you would have 1 happy employee and many (all the network users) unhappy employees.

 

Logistics wise it would make no sense to assign scan to the hardwired connection.

Or if you have a home or small office and 95% of your work is done at a primary workstation and most of your employees just print occasionally, you can't even assign the USB port for use for scanning when using the primary workstation. That's ridiculous. And considering that scanning 1 page at 200 dpi wirelessly is utterly useless, this makes this device limited solely to a network printer and everything else is a needless hassle. No one in their right mind would perform 300 dpi scans wirelessly on this device - ever. And considering the middling speed of this device, it's only truly suitable as a small office device. 

 

So the solution is that if used on a wireless network, the Xerox WorkCentre 6027 is essentially usable ONLY as a:

(1) network printer

(2) copy machine (slow)

(3) fax machine

 

Scanner - don't even think about it.
