Setting Up a WSD Port (Windows 7/Windows Vista)

You can scan to a networked Windows computer using WSD (Web Services for Devices). You must first set up a WSD port on your Windows 7 or Windows Vista system (the port is set up automatically on Windows 10 and Windows 8.x).

Before you set up a WSD port, make sure you installed your product software, and connected your product and computer to the same network.

  1. Turn on your product.
  2. Print a network status sheet so you can identify the network name and model name for your product on the network.
  3. Click or Start and select Computer.
  4. On the left side of the window, select Network.
  5. Locate your product on the Network screen, right-click it, and select Install.
  6. When you see the User Account Control screen, click Continue.
    Note: If you see an Uninstall screen, click Uninstall and repeat these steps as necessary.
  7. When you see the message Your device is ready to use in the Windows taskbar, click the message.
  8. On the Driver Software Installation screen, make sure your product is listed as Ready to use. Then click Close.
  9. Do one of the following:
    • Windows 7: Click and select Devices and Printers.
    • Windows Vista: Click Start and select Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Printers.
  10. Make sure that an icon appears for your product's name on the network.
When you use WSD, select your product name to scan over the network.
