    BrotherMFC Scan to Network and Windows 10 Firewall

    I'm having an issue where my Brother MFC cannot scan directly to my Win 10's desktop. I had previously shared the desktop folder. This seemed to have started when I upgraded to the Creator's Update.

    Has anyone had success configuring the Windows firewall to allow this? When I disable the firewall for private networks, it works like a charm. With it enabled, I always receive an error message.

    Hi ericnixmd.

    Have you tried re-installing the software and allowing it to adjust firewall?

    Might be an opportunity to get latest software from Brother for your device.
