What you will see
You are unable to use Scan to PC in Windows 2000 or 2003. The configured shared folder shows a file that is 0kb in size, and a "Push scan cancelled" error is displayed on the X502 MFP LCD after scanning the page.
This was first recognized on the Lexmark X502 MFP, but it may affect other All-In-Ones or MFPs.
Configuration appears to have been successful: Name Resolution, Credentials, and Read/Write rights.
The error occurs when the MFP requests to "write" the file and the server rejects the request.
A network trace indicates a Write AndX Response, Error: Status_Access_Denied message.

NOTE: The X502 MFP does not allow \\server name so you will have to follow the Modify SMB Signing instructions.
Microsoft's Modify SMB signing instructions:
- In Registry Editor, locate and then click the following registry subkey:
- In the right-hand pane of Registry Editor, right-click requiresecuritysignature in the Name field, and then click Modify.
The Edit DWORD Value dialog box appears.
- In the Value data box, type 0, and then click OK.
- Quit Registry Editor, and then restart the computer.
IMPORTANT! Please see Microsoft's warning regarding any modification of the system registry.
NOTE: If the computer is a member of a domain, the procedure above may not work since domain policy overwrites this setting.
The policy which sets this can be found in security policies; it is called: Microsoft network server: Digitally sign communications (always), and it should be set to Disabled to make this work.
Alternative Non-Domain Computers
Navigate to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Local Security Policy.
