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:
- Scan to Folder / SMB / Mac OSX 10.9 Mavericks (by Kyocera)
- How to connect with File Sharing on your Mac (by Apple)
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:
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.

What exactly are the settings for the Kyocera (e.g. port/path)?
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:
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.
Sorry for the late reply, but that did not work 🙁
I’m sharing the folder ‚Scans‘ via Server.app on macOS 10.12.2:
Access: SMB (nothing else)
Permissions: myuser (Owner) read/write, staff read/write, others none
In Address book, I provided:
Do you have any idea why it won’t work?
