Question: Problems with SMB and file sharing in Lion
I have an HP OfficeJet 8500 Premier that is only 2 years old. One of the things I loved about it was the ability to scan documents to a folder on my Mac. Unfortunately, the only filesharing HP supports is SMB. In SnowLeopard, SMB worked great (as long as SMB was set up in "Sharing").
Now, however, I cannot connect my HP printer/scanner to my Mac via SMB. I have rebooted my Mac, rebooted my printer, turned on then off the SMB sharing, tried to re-setup the scan-to folder on my printer...all to no avail.
One other oddity--when I try to turn off my SMB account (my login account) in sharing, it won't let me. It asks for a password then unchecks the account briefly, then re-checks the account (leaving it on). I have the opposite problem on my MBP--when I try to turn on SMB sharing and select the account, it asks for a password and briefly checks the account box, then un-checks it.
Anyone have any solutions for getting an HP printer/scanner to Scan-to a Mac running 10.7?
