I just purchased a Canon pixma MG6220 and installed it last night. Both of my laptops can connect and print to it with no problems. I wanted to see how the scanner works, so I selected scan and then "forward scanned data to PC". After selecting this, I only get "local (USB)" as an option. If I tell it to search again for networked PCs, it does not find any and still only returns local (USB). FWIW, I do not have this printer connected at all via USB to any computer. How can I get my printer to locate my computers?

You don't state how everything is actually connnected. However, from what I've seen, many models won't scan if used over wifi. They expect to be directly connected.
