Dell 3115cn - SMB/FTP Error  016=781

Last Modified: 2016-11-22
Hi Experts,

 I have Windows 10 64 bit system

 I am trying to install a Dell 3115cn printer on my home network.

 I have already physically hooked the printer to the router by either net cable and the light is giving a green.

 I have followed the following:

On this option on the link above:
3. Register A User In The Embedded Web Server
 11. Enter the Server Port Number for the computer or server where the scan is sent.

 How do I find the Server Port Number on the server I am sending?

 On this:
 By default the SMB port number is 139, and the FTP port is 21.
 These settings can change depending on the configuration of the computer.  

 How do I know if it is SMB or FTP?

 I can see physically on the printer the share name that I gave under <Server >.

 I am able to print from my wireless device as PCL6


 Please help and thanks
