    Another question, when I trying to install CWIS on Xerox by itself in Widows 10, before the installation it asked me for enable some "Internet Information Services", I followed the steps to enable those services but it doesn't work after I enabled them. Do you have some solution for this matter, I think my Upgrade to Windows 10 was unsuccessful, with windows 7 Pro I didn't have any problem as now. Thank you in advance.

    Try adding support for older .net interfaces ... that may clear it but imo its prob a case of the host needs trusting and wx needs a server or localhost rule to do that... I can't test for you sorry mate.

    • on the wx system press [windows key] + [x] then press [f] for programs and features
    • press the turn windows features on or off link... then find networks from the list (see screenshot above post #4)

    Thank you ussnorway. Do CWIS Support Windows 10 as well?

    Thank you ussnorway. This is great info, (No idea about the SHORCUTS) but after I enabled features that CWIS was asking for, it doesn't work neither. NOTE: I don't have the Xerox Printer installed on Windows 10, I only trying to get in the Printer Settings remotely by the IP Address thru CWIS. (Share more Shortcuts, it's very useful)

    My personal knowledge of CWIS printers is limited… and there is no other documentation available for wx from the makers because to be blunt, people just don’t use them anymore.

    If you don’t have the printer software installed, then standard network security especially in wx (its only designed to let Microsoft pass the firewalls) will block attempts to change settings remotely… as you would expect.

    • Why do you need remote access to this setting (most importantly) are you logging in across a secure network like a work | proxy environment, a limited network like your typical home system or you want it so anybody from anywhere in the world can just log in with an ordinary web browser?
    • Where (exactly) is this printer i.e, networked to a 12r2 server, sitting on its own router port or just attached to a homegroup computer by network | USB cable?

    Thank you ussnorway. Yes, I need access to the settings of my Xerox Printers Remotely from home or any place. The Printers are connected via Network to the Work Server but the Printer Software is installed in a Computer running Windows 7 at work that belong to the Work Network. I need help on How to have access to my printers remotely. Questions: I have to install the CWIS Software in each computer in witch I want to have access? I have to install the Printers Software & Drivers in the Server? Thanks

    Networking 1:01;

    Modern networks have security that wasn’t around when older servers got designed so anything older than a server 12 will run into serious issues trying to remote into work from home… the country you live in will define just how big these issues are because some areas allow what’s called a business dns to be cheaply maintained and in other places (like Australia) you may as well build your own NASA satellite and use that for dns… it would be cheaper than asking bigpond.

    There are two ways to do this kind of scenario;
    The computer logging in and the computer that controls the printer BOTH have the software installed to give you access from within the software itself i.e, like a bank atm where you just type the keys in and assume the bank can make sense of it.

    The problems with this;
    The server at work needs to have at least some control over the printer so that it knows what to do with your incoming instructions … again, older servers will need to have the printer directly installed in them instead of the w7 computer you have now… even modern servers may run into a driver issue here because the printer is so old.

    I recommend the second option of logging directly into the w7 system and taking control of it manually in effect you run the printer from there in the same way as you would run it sitting at the desk at work.

    Advantages:
    Modern servers (such as hyper-v or Vspear) systems are designed for this scenario and its always easier to use a tool made to do that job.
    This way only the w7 computer needs to have the printer drivers | software installed and that’s significantly simpler than getting dated printers to run on systems Microsoft has locked them out of.
    Believe it or not this is more secure because a person is in control.

    Disadvantages:

    Hyper-v is free (the actual software not the full setup cost) and imo superior to Vspear both for security and ease of set up | operation however my knowledge of networking allows me to get away without needing to hire someone else to set the system up and fix it when I “accidently” bugger it up. Hyper-v is still relatively new and there isn’t a lot of nub friendly help but that’s somewhat mitigated because the system is simpler.

    Vspear is made by the same people that make vmware | fusion and is certainly not free but it has been around a lot longer and its often easier to find networking people that specialise in its usage to help you setup | run. It has considerably more documentation supporting it and is designed to run on older pre-server12 systems however all the documentation is aimed at networking techs and NOT nub friendly at all.

    I should add that the above assumes you want to be in control of your work system but if you just want to throw money at an outside company to do the job for you then there is also Microsoft Cloud

    Thank you ussnorway. Of course I don't want to throw money paying others to do the job, that's why I'm here in the Forum, I appreciate your info and support, actually in our business we have an IT Guy for long time but I want to get the most help from you because those technical issues I want to do by myself, of course with your help and experience in the field, even when those technical solutions that you provided me are so hard for me to understand, I hope you continue giving me solutions to my questions. Thank you once again.
