Code: Select all

 sudo ufw disable
will disable the Mint firewall. Test the scanner with fw disabled.
By default the fw is disabled.

Please see if this helps https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/17
code] sudo ufw enable[/code] will enable the firewall.
You will need to assign a fixed ip to the scanner using your router.
If I have helped you solve a problem, please add [SOLVED] to your first post title, it helps other users looking for help, and keeps the forum clean.

Deepak

I am using Mint 20 Cinnamon 64 bit with AMD A8/7410 processor . Memory 8GB

these rules work for my Epson WF

Code: Select all

sudo ufw allow to ip 192.168.0.10

Code: Select all

sudo ufw allow from 192.168.0.10
of coarse sub your assigned ip

Hi Skin!

I had the same problem with an Epson SX235W as described here:

viewtopic.php?f=51&t=228387

The only way I found to make scanner work was disabling firewall or using kernel 4.2. If you success trying to make scanner work with firewall enabled or a newer kernel, please, post the solution here. ;)
