FTP problem .. hours wasted and still no solution ..
Trying to get Lexmark ( mx310dn ) to scan documents to an FTP folder.
FTP folder is located in a shared folder, on Pi ext. drive, OMV5
I have FTP enabled in OMV5
steps so far :
OMV5 created User : 'lexmark' with a password.
Access Right - User - Lexmark - Groups include users, adm, sudo, ssh, sambashare
Shared Folders - 'www' : privileges - 'lexmark' read/write
Shared Folders - 'www' : ACL - 'lexmark' read/write
I can connect to the FTP folder from my PC using Filezilla ( same User / Pass as created for the printer ).
I use the browser based interface on my laptop to adjust settings on the printer.
I can print to the printer from my PC.
In the printer settings, I create a FTP profile :
to my Pi IP 192.168.1.136
The shortcut to scan to FTP on the printer control panel is '#3'
If I connect with same details from PC using filezilla, connects without problems.
Trying to scan to the ftp address, it scans, creates a 1kb pdf 'file' in the shared folder ( can't be opened ), and then the printer reports 'Connection Error' and prints out an error report.
Error report simply says :
Scan to FTP Server Failed
FTP Server 192.168.1.136
Connection failure : -12
My Pi and laptop are on 192.168.1.. domain and my printer is 192.168.9..
Both networks connected to a Mikrotik router.
Mikrotik firewall is set for direct connection between Pi and Printer
Any insight appreciated
