Network-scanning PDFs to shared folder isn't working

I have a Xerox DocumentCenter 430ST Photocopier/Printer/Scanner. I have a shared folder on my network that all users can normally access. I have a user accout called "Xerox" that has been setup to allow my scanner to save to a certain shared folder, I have all the proper DNS settings, authentication settings, etc, and I am connected to a domain. No matter what I try, I cannot get the DocumentCenter to authenticate properly on the domain, even after updating the DNS. Any suggestions?

Do you get any eror messages - if so, what are they? Has this ever worked - if so, any idea what changes were made?

This has worked in the past, and no changes other than the DNS server addresses have been made. I know the DNS server info to be correct. The CenterWare software installed and configured the printer, but I have two errors:

When trying to update the template pool location in the "Internet Services" web GUI, I get an error message that occurs when I try to "Apply New Settings" in the "Repository Setup" page in the "Internet Services" GUI. I always get "Could not login to server. Save pool information?" Also, the printer itself always complains when I try to refresh the template list that "The template pool could not be accessed".

It sounds almost as if there is a password set on machine. Except that it should then ask for it when you try to make changes. Does it let you make other changes (e.g. default copy or print settings)?

I can make administrative changes from the web interface and by using CentreWare, and I have even been able to add built-in templates using the web interface (builtin templates begin with the '@' symbol), but I cannot add templates that are looked up from a template pool repository (they don't begin with an '@' symbol, and are located on a file server instead of being stored in the machine itself).

This seems to be some sort of networking problem at this point. It's as if the Xerox can't become a part of the domain or authenticate properly.

The network users can print to it fine, but the device scanning to a network shared folder just won't go. If i ping the IP address I get a repsone, but if i ping the host name ("XeroxPrinter") I get nothing. DNS problems perhaps? I've tried setting this thing to DHCP to see if it would make a difference, but no luck.
