Problem with Usb printer server & HP All-In-One Printer

I bought a USB 2.0 Printer server from ebay. The problem is that my computer can't recognize it as a scanner, it can see the printer only as a printer.

I tried to install HP drivers of my printer but it didn't help. I also saw that in the windows section of scanners their is a hp scanner but for some reason I can't use it. I also installed the server software that came with the device. I also tried to disable my anti-virus (that did some problems).

Is their any way some one can help me make my scanner (All-In-One printer) available to use from the network?

  1. Well, as it says, it is a print server, not a scanner server! It only works one way. HP has special network cards and print servers for there printers, that work both ways.
  2. I don't agree with you cause If it was only a scanner it would work. So why it can't recognize it as two separate devices...???

    Can you give me a link to such cards\print servers?

    Let's start with the exact printer model! And how do you know it would work with a scanner?
  4. The model is F2200
    They wrote in the description of the product that it would work, also I saw comments of people that did it with a scanner

  6. But I'm not talking about a feature of HP I have another device that don't have any thing to do with HP that should allow me to scan and print from the network

    Yes, and HP offers printer servers, that support that. If you find other printer servers, that support scanning as well, use that!
