I have a Fiji Xerox Docucentre II C4300 and here’s how I set it up to scan via FTP  to OSX Lion.

1. Enable the built-in FTP server. To do this I downloaded “Lion Tweaks” from here and pressed the ‘Enable the hidden FTP-Server’ button.

2. Make a Folder called ‘Scans’ in my home user folder.

3. Go to Xerox printer ‘Scan to PC’ setting and there are 4 settings you need to fill in:

Server: Enter the IP address of your Macintosh Computer. (Go to System Preferences, Network to find your IP Address, e.g.

Save In: Scans

Username: Your OSX Username

Password: Your OSX password.


Then when you press Scan the pdf of the scanned document will appear in your ~/Scans folder!

You can help me by clicking on any other article. Google have started penalising this site because it is so good! People read an article, get the answer they want, and leave. I think this is a great thing, but Google have a different view. They call it a 'bounce' and have started penalising sites that people only visit one page on. They perceive it as 'you didn't like what you saw, so you left' when in fact it could have been 'you got what you needed so you left.'
