You can use the name (instead of the IP address) in the server name field, only if the shared folder is on a Windows computer in the same local network.

Note:

If the product has already been configured to use a network folder and you now want to use a different network folder, click Modify icon.

To clone the network folder, tap the clone icon; to delete the network folder, tap the delete icon.

You can check that the shared folder remains accessible by clicking Verify in the Embedded Web Server at any time. A correctly configured shared folder can become inaccessible if the user’s password is changed, or if the shared folder is moved or deleted.

Example: Create a network folder under Windows

The following steps provide the complete procedure for this topic.

  1. Create a new user account on the remote computer. You can use an existing user account for this purpose, but it is not recommended.

  2. Create a new folder on the remote computer, unless you want to use an existing folder.

  3. Right-click the folder and click Properties.

  4. In the Sharing tab, click the Advanced Sharing button.

  5. Ensure that the user has the correct permission settings depending of the functionality use of the network folder. If you configured a scan-to-folder, you need to ensure full read/write control over the shared folder so that the user(s) can add files to folder. To do this, click Permissions and grant Full Control to the user (or to any suitable group that includes that user). If the user(s) is going to use the folder to print documents, a read-only permission is enough.

  6. For scanner users, If there is a Security tab in the Properties window for your folder, then you must also grant the same user Full Control over the folder in the Security tab. Only some file systems such as NTFS require this.

Example: Create a network folder under Mac OS

The following steps provide the complete procedure for this topic.

  1. Create a new user account for the User on the remote computer. You can use an existing user account for this purpose, but it is not recommended.

  2. Create or choose a folder on the remote computer. By default, Mac OS users have a Public folder that can easily be used for this purpose.

  3. Open the System Preferences application and click the Sharing icon.

  4. Depending of the functionality of the folder, make sure the user has the right permissions. For scanning purposes, Read & Write is needed to access the folder.

  5. Click Options.

  7. Click Done. You can now see file sharing enabled and Windows sharing on.

  8. You must configure the printer to send scans to the folder.

Configure the email server

Configuring the email server permits the printer to send email messages.

To configure the email server using the Embedded Web Server, click Settings > E-mail server, and fill in the following fields, which are usually supplied by the email server provider.

  • SMTP server and port number: The IP address or fully qualified domain name of the outgoing mail server (SMTP) that will process all email messages from the printer. If the mail server requires authentication, email notifications will not work.

  • Printer e-mail address: The email address assigned to the account that is being configured in the printer. This email address will appear in the From: field of all the email messages sent by the printer. This is not the same email address that is used by HP Connected.

  • Attachment size limit: The maximum size of a file attached to an email message. When you scan to email from the front panel, you will be warned if an attachment is higher than this limit, but you can ignore the warning and send the message anyway.

  • Use SSL certificates: Check this box to use SSL certificates if the server requires an encrypted connection. Click the link to configure advanced certificate settings.

  • Authentication. If you choose authentication, you are also asked for your username and password.

Once you have configured the email server, you are strongly recommended to check the configuration.

Configure the email address book

The printer uses Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP), which provides access to a network address book for scan-to-email and authentication purposes.

The following instructions explain how to use LDAP to connect the printer to a network email address book, and to authenticate users of the printer using their LDAP credentials.

Email lookup

When the printer uses LDAP for scan-to-email, it searches a database of email addresses.

When you enter the email address and click the Search button, LDAP searches a list of email addresses for matching characters. You can refine the search results by typing additional characters and performing a new search.

Printers that support LDAP also support the use of a standard outgoing email profile, so they do not require a connection to an LDAP server in order to send email.

Information needed before starting

Ensure that you have this information before starting the configuration.

  • Server address (hostname or IP)

  • Server authentication requirements

  • Path to start search (BaseDN, Search Root) (for example, o=mycompany.com)

  • Attributes for matching the name entered (such as cn or samAccountName), retrieving the email address (such as mail), and how the name will be displayed on the control panel (such as displayName)

Address book setup

The following steps provide the complete procedure for this topic.

You can configure the printer to obtain email addresses from an LDAP server, so that they are available when users of the printer want to search for an address.

  1. Open the Embedded Web Server.

  2. Click Settings > Address book.

  3. Enable the LDAP server (mandatory to continue with the LDAP configuration).

  4. Network Directory Server section: Enter the name of the LDAP server address (for example, ldap.mycompany.com) and Port.

  5. Server Authentication Requirements section: Select the appropriate authentication type in the server (Windows credentials, simple credentials, use printer user’s credentials). You must fill in the domain name, username, and password.

  6. LDAP Database Search Settings section: Fill in the following fields.

    • In the path to start a search (BaseDN, Search Root) box, enter the path to start searching the database (for example, o=mycompany.com).

    • In the recipients's display name box, enter the name of the attribute that contains the person's name (for example, displayName).

    • In the recipient's email address box, enter the name of the attribute that contains the person's email address (for example, mail or rfc822Mailbox).

    • Use the LDAP filter condition box to set up an optional filter to filter out email addresses.

  7. Click the Apply button to save the settings. Setup is complete.

  8. To check that the LDAP retrieval is set up correctly, enter at least three characters of a network contact name in the Test box, and then click the Test button. If the test is successful, a message is displayed.
