Hi, we are looking to set up our Samsung 6555n for smb scanning to our Ready NAS shared folder. We created a folder within the primary shared folder on the NAS and then entered what we thought was the proper information in the SMB set on the 6555 with no success.

We also looked at scan to email but this multifunction doesn't allow ssl and we use gmail.

We are not on a domain. Everyone on the network can print to the Samsung. Everyone can see and has access to the "Scans" folder. I have included a screenshot of the Samsung Syncthru SMB set up page.

The Question: What should we enter into the smb set up so that it workssync thru SMB set up page?

Thanks,

D.

you may find that using the IP address works better, but you will need the NAS to have a fixed IP
Although windows names are not case sensitive, the naming on the NAS may well be, as they are usually Unix based.

so, alias is just a label, something like "PCScan"
tick IP address and enter the IP address of the NAS
username= a windows username that can access the folder on the NAS (ideally exists on the NAS)
Password= user's password (some devices will not accept a blank password)
share= the share name
domain = you may need to use the name of the NAS
Scan file folder some devices will not scan to the root of a share.

e.g. if your scans are to go to \\NASBOX\scans\scans1
alias PCScan
IP address 192.168.1.100
share name scans
scan file folder scans1
username scanner
password scanning
domain NASBOX

Much appreciated! I think more than anything it was the domain item that caused issue, I'll try the NAS name and let you know how it turns out.

Thanks,

Awesome! Just about perfect,

Using your example it would be:

 alias: PCScan
 IP address: 192.168.1.100
 share name: scans
 scan file folder: scans1
 username:  scanner (for us it needed to be the admin for the NAS rather than just a created user on the NAS)
 password:  scanning (the NAS admin password)
 domain: \\NASBOX\  

Much appreciated!
