epson all in one will print but not scan [SOLVED]

Post by Jdw_11983 » Sun Jun 23, 2019 6:45 pm

I've been trying to get my epson all in one completely set up with no avail. It will print but not scan on my home network. It will do everything when hooked up to a usb cable. I just did a fresh install of linux min 19.1 cinnamon on a Toshiba Tecra laptop. All printer and scanner drivers are installed as far as I can see. I also tried following these directions here viewtopic.php?f=42&t=225289 to try and edit the configuration files to make it work with no luck. Are there any other options open for me or should I just get a different brand of printer? Thanks for the help.

and these are?

When you provide this information, I may be able to help.
To clarify, both printing and scanning work fine with a USB connection but scanning does not work via Wi-Fi - is that correct?

Check this thread viewtopic.php?f=51&t=294603 for a related discussion about getting the scanner component of an all-in-one printer/scanner to be seen when it's connected over a wifi network. Mint's firewall (UFW) may be part of the problem.

It's an Epson workforce wf-2650. I turned my firewall off a while ago and the computer saw the scanner part of the printer and was able to scan a document. I think what I need to do is try to follow the directions on the above post and add a rule for the firewall. I'll try that when I get time and post the results. Thanks

Well, I tried adding a rule to the firewall and my Epson all in one seems to scan with the firewall on.

Hopefully, this is taken care of and won't have any more problems. Thank you to everyone who helped! :D
