    Windows Fax and Scan does work on Network Device


    Scanning device is an HP Photosmart All in One HP 2575. i first installed it as an USB device and Windows Fax and Scan recognized it and scanned nicely. I then installed it as a network device and WFS would not recognize it as a scanning device when I unplugged the USB cable. It prints just fine but will not scan.

    What might I have done wrong and how may I correct it?

    Thank you

    Some further information.

    If I go to Network and select the Photosmart printer and select scan from there, the document scans perfectly. The problem seems to be with Windows Fax and Scan. Or at least here on my Windows 8 installation.

    Hope this helps someone tell me what is wrong.

    Thanks for your patience.
