Xerox Phaser 3200MFP Network Scanner does not work

Asked by Timeu on 2013-08-08

Hey guys, the problem is... I have a Xerox Phaser 3200MFP conected to my office network. All Windows hosts are perfectly working but Ubuntu hosts are not. At the Windows hosts there's a program to configure an ID so the scanner can send the images to the correct host but there's no such program to linux...

What should I do now?

Can you ping the device ok?

yes i can...
I don't know if i was clear but the problem is to use the scanner... Printing is OK but I need to use the scanner through the network

ok... now the xsane sees a lot of samsung scanners but not the xerox...
with the netdiscovery it sees the xerox devices too but the xsane no... =/

Please read this:

I quote:

"the development version of the sane xerox_mfp backend lists support
for 4 networked scanners. Your scanner is not one of those 4. So, the
place to start is to connect the scanner directly to a machine running
a recent version of sane-backends, and see if you can make it work
over usb? "

The following page shows that the sane xerox_mfp backend can only communicate with the Phaser 3200MFP via USB, not via the network:

Hi Mark,
I can not see your posts here and I dont know why... I received 2 e-mails with your answers but this is the first i'm realy seeing in here...

so, if it only supports 4 and mine is not there... and for the Phaser 3200MFP theres no network support, I guess I'm quiting for now... The problem is: Our scanner is bronken and we are trying to use this Xerox Phaser that it's not ours... It's kindda borrowed hahahaha... So I can not take it from there to connect to an usb here or even there...

But... thank you guys for the helping answers...

Can you help with this problem?
