    network scanner Brother MFC-8510DN ip issue

    I installed week ago cento7 and scanner worked like a charm on the fly

    However, yesterday I had to reinstall Centos7 for an efi bios problem, leaving untouched the /home partition
    Unfortunately, despite the scanner being installed on the right ip , when I try to launch a scanning, after the first ping at the right p, it changes IP
    Here it is:

    [root]# brsaneconfig4 -p
    test SCANNER
    ping -w 10

    PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
    From icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable
    From icmp_seq=2 Destination Host Unreachable
    From icmp_seq=3 Destination Host Unreachable
    From icmp_seq=4 Destination Host Unreachable

    --- ping statistics ---
    4 packets transmitted, 0 received, +4 errors, 100% packet loss, time 2999ms
    pipe 4

    Is it some thingh regarding firewall or some kind of sane old config file in the /home partition?

    Thank for any help

    have you verified the printer's ip has not changed? If so, it can only be your firewall from accessing it, disable the firewall temporarily to see if the issue is resolved, if so, you know where your problem is.
