I am trying to share my scanner to my other computer. But when I give command to take some scanned images. It shows me this error which you can see in the below attached image. I need your help. Thanks
That’s a sharing error which can happen if the device you want to use over the network is not shared properly with other computers. Before you can use a device like a printer or scanner across a network, the device must be shared properly.
To share your scanner or printer properly across the network, on the computer where the printer or scanner is directly connected, click “Start”, “Control Panel”, “Printers and Other Hardware” then “Printers and Faxes”.
Here, right-click your printer or scanner and select “Sharing”. In the printer or scanner’s “Properties” window, in “Sharing” tab, make sure “Share this printer” is selected then enter your device’s shared name in the “Share name” text field. For example, without quotes “Scanner network” then click “OK”.
After this, you need to add the shared printer or scanner to the rest of the computers on the network. To do this, on every computer, click “Start”, “Control Panel”, “Printers and Other Hardware” then “Printers and Faxes”. Next, click “Add a printer” then click “Next”. In “Add Printer Wizard” dialog, select “A network printer, or a printer attached to another computer” then click “Next”.
Windows will then search the network for possible shared devices and display the results on the screen. Select the shared device you created earlier called “Scanner network” then click “Next”. And that’s it. The shared printer or scanner should now appear on the computer.
