When trying to connect to PC via Scanner, error occurs

Hello, we have a Gestetner DSc428 mfc unit. When pressing the scanner button on the control panel/enter destination/Browse network/Domain/computer name and inputting the username and password, we get the error: Cannot find the specified path. Please check the settings.

The computer name is warehouse, so is the user account. It has both local machine and domain admin priveleges. When chosing a different user to scan to the same machine it works. This user can ping and print to the printer. Any ideas? Thank you...

Try warehouse\warehouse as the username - Since both username and computer are the same, it may be confusing the username for the machine name in authentication.

Hi Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I just tried that, same error. There is a scan docs folder on each users desktop, it is shared and has full permissions for everyone. at the login it says //warehouse , then I tried warehouse\warehouse, and just plain warehouse as the usernames.
Any other thoughts? Thank you.

I noticed you typed forward slashes "/" --- is that correct?  If the system usually expects forward slashes instead of back-slash, then try that same change between the machine name and user ID  "warehouse/warehouse".

Does warehouse have permissions to the share?

I tried both now, same issue. I have now renamed the machine name and profile name back to the original...

Using UNC paths you have to use double back slashes before the server or computer name as such \\wharehouse\wharehouse.  I have a Ricoh that I set up to scan to folders but the Ricohs have a nice web interface where you can configure this.
