IP conflict scanning to a Server

An HP LaserJet M521DN set to subnet won't scan to a shared folder on a Server 2003 Server set to subnet  ***NOTE: IT WORKS IF THE SCANNER'S ADDRESS IS***.  Also, we specified the IP (not the server name) in the "scan to" settings of the scanner to eliminate DNS from being a problem.  Why won't the scanner scan to when its address is

Rob is right. It is a subnet issue. It is looking for a /24 subnet no matter what you type in.
maybe you could give one of the computers a secondary address with a subnet mask and have the scanner scan to a folder on that computer. Then, you can place a link to the same folder on that computer. Or if you there is no security issue, add a second ip address with a a subnet mask on the server. Then scan to a folder at that address.

Sounds like a subnet issue though your subnet settings are correct for those IPs.  Some printers, despite a subnet will only work with a subnet.  It is as if it is hard coded in the printer firmware.  I have seen the same with non-business class routers.
