Question about Samsung CLX-3175FN Color Laser All-in-One Printer
I have a multi-function Samsung CLX-3175FN printer. I recently got a new PC with Windows 7. I've installed the Samsung printer as a network printer via ethernet cable to a Linksys WRT320N wireless router. I can use the printer function but when I try to scan something from the printer to my PC, the control panel on the printer says "Not available". I am able to scan and save directly to a USB device such as thumb drive plugged directly into the printer/scanner. Prior to getting this new PC with Windows, I was able to scan from the CLX-3175FN to my previous PC. My previous PC had Windows XP and the printer/scanner was installed as a local printer via USB cable.
I had the same issue with Windows 7 64 bit.I managed to solve it by doing the following
1. Locate the scan2pc.exe program in C:\Windows\twain_32\Samsung\CLX3170 2. Right-click/properties - Compatibility tab. 3.Set compatibility to win xp. Set "Run as Administrator"
I also added the scan2pc.exe to the firewall allowed programs (did that for scanmgr.exe as well, but I don't think I needed to).
Works great now!

I have found out that two things are important.
My setup is CLX-3175FW and Mac OS 10.6. I guess the same applies to other 3175 models and Windows PCs.

Going in to scan and fax manager and adding the printer fixes this. choose edit or whatever the option is and let it search the network for the printer. I have found out the root cause of the issue. If at any time you go into the network configuration from the menu on the printer it will wipe the settings in the scan and print manager and you will have to correct the IP.
