The New LAN Wizard™
LAN Wizard is Microtek's network scanning utility program that works
under Windows.
With LAN Wizard, it's like having a scanner that can be used by everyone on
the network. Simply connect the ScanMaker 6700 to a PC that is designated
as the server, and other workstations on your network can connect to the
scanner and make use of it – just as if the scanner was individually and
locally connected to their own stations! The ScanMaker 6700 is especially
suitable in a workplace environment where having scanners at every station is
impractical or where space or resource allocation limits the number of
LAN Wizard Sharing Dialog Box
scanners that can be installed.
Using LAN Wizard, you can access the networked ScanMaker 6700 and do
everything, just like a locally connected user – preview an image on the
scanner bed, perform image corrections such as adjusting brightness or
applying a filter, scan the image, and finally save it to your own local hard
drive. And LAN Wizard has many useful built-in features. For instance, users
can send messages to one another if the scanner is in use.
For their part, servers always have the option to "unshare" devices and set
password protection to screen access to the network scanner.
With its networking capability, the ScanMaker 6700 maximizes the value of
your scanner, helping to pay for your investment on this versatile and very
affordable powerhouse many, many times over!
