Ran into a brick wall with a client wanting to have a Workcenter C7225 by Xexox scan to folder. What worked on one did not work on another but I eventually figured out the pattern and wanted to share it. Basically all MacOS X versions before the High Sierra build were not compatible with Xerox’s SMB protocol. (They fixed the SMB protocol in High Sierra so that Xerox Scan to SMB works perfectly.) Here is the workaround:
Xerox Scan to Folder MacOS X pre-Sierra:
The easiest way that I found to allow scanning to these systems is to enable the dormant FTP server.
Type in – sudo -s launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ftp.plist
Enter your administrator password
Create Scans folder in Home directory
Go to Preferences > Sharing > File Sharing
Choose + under Shared Folders
Navigate to the Scans folder and click Add
Check all available sharing methods.
Go to the printers IP address in the browser of your choice
Click on Scan
Create a template
Enter IP address
use /Scans as file path
enter full username and password (MacOS takes out spaces by default)
Test scanning successfully
