Kyocera M6526cidn & Scan to Folder & SMB Shares on MacOS El Capitan Server

After Upgrading to El Capitan, my Kyocera MFC didn’t want to save scans via SMB connection anymore. This brought me to google wildly after any solution, and I came across these documents, which kept enlightening me:

As I had set up a user named „scanuser“ in the Mac OS Server App, I kept looking there, why it wouldn’t work. I changed permission rights and even switched the system back to SMB v1, by entering the following in a console window:

echo "[default]" >> ~/Library/Preferences/nsmb.conf; echo "smb_neg=smb1_only" >> ~/Library/Preferences/nsmb.conf

If you need to change it back, you just enter:

rm ~/Library/Preferences/nsmb.conf

But, to no avail!

So I looked into System Preferences and Users again and thought, I might create a local user called „scanuser“. This I did, and suddenly my Kyocera printer & scanner was willing to talk to the SMB share on my Mac OS Server again.

    1. Ok, I now just looked in the Command Center RX (web interface):

      – Function Settings
      – Scan to Directory:
      SMB = On
      SMB Port = 445

      WSD-Scan = On

      Make sure that the Target is defined in the Printer’s Address book!
      There you also have a section called „SMB“. Here I have defined:

      Hostname:
      Port: 445
      Path:
      Login Username:
      Login Password:

      There you also have a button to test the connection.

      Now, if you want to send a Scan, just press „SCAN“, select SMB target from address book, and voilá – it should work. Provided, all settings (user/rights) on the server are set in the right way.

      1. Sorry for the late reply, but that did not work 🙁

        I’m sharing the folder ‚Scans‘ via Server.app on macOS 10.12.2:
        Name: Scans
        Access: SMB (nothing else)
        Permissions: myuser (Owner) read/write, staff read/write, others none

        In Address book, I provided:
        Hostname: 192.168.178.10
        Port: 445
        Path: Scans
        User: myuser

        Do you have any idea why it won’t work?

        Thanks!
