Steps required for setup
The following steps are necessary to use the network scanner option. The
steps must be completed in the order shown.
1. Your dealer must install the FO-LN1 network interface kit and the FO-NS2
network scanner kit, and enter the network scanner product key. The machine
must be connected to the network.
2. Your network administrator must decide whether the machine will be
assigned a permanent IP address, or receive an address automatically from a
DHCP server (assigning a permanent IP address is recommended; if DHCP
is used, the lease time for the address should be set to unlimited). If a
permanent IP address is to be assigned, the network administrator must
determine what address will be used, and identify the subnet mask and
gateway. Once this information has been determined, the IP address setting
should be completed in the machine as explained on page 6.

4. Scan to E-mail setup must be completed as explained on page 16.
5. To use Scan to Desktop, you must install the Network Scanner Tool and
Sharpdesk programs in your computer. These programs are installed from the
CD-ROM that comes with the network scanner kit (see page 28 for installation
instructions). User’s guides in PDF format for the programs are also included
on the CD-ROM.
6. Destinations for Scan to E-mail and Scan to FTP can be programmed into
Rapid Keys and Speed Dial numbers using the Web page in the machine.
These procedures are explained on page 12. Scan to E-mail destinations can
also be programmed using the operation panel of the machine as explained
on page 25. To use a Rapid Key or Speed Dial number to transmit a scanned
document, see pages 21 and 23. To transmit a scanned document to an email address without using a Rapid Key or Speed Dial number, see page 19.

1. Setting the IP Address
Once your dealer has installed the network scanner option and the
machine is connected to the network, the network administrator or
administrator of the machine should use the following procedure to set
the IP address of the machine.
Note: Although “DHCP” is available as a setting for the IP address
(this means that the machine automatically obtains an address from a
DHCP server), it is recommended that a permanent IP address be
assigned to the machine. If DHCP must be used, it is recommended
that the DHCP lease time for the IP address be set to unlimited. To
check the IP address currently assigned to the machine when DHCP
is used, print out the network setting list as explained on page 9.

3. Mail Server and DNS Server Settings
Settings for your E-mail server and DNS server must be configured in
order to use the network scanner function. To configure the settings,
access the machine's Web page from a computer that is connected to
the same network as the machine. The Web page can be displayed
with your Web browser (Internet Explorer 4.0 or later, or Netscape
Navigator 4.0 or later).
Accessing the Web page in the machine
To access the Web page in the machine, type in the IP address of the
machine in your browser in the format http://XXX.XXX.X.X, where the
X’s are the IP address (the number of digits between periods will vary
depending on the address). If you need to check the IP address of the
machine, print out the network settings as explained on page 9.
Mail server and DNS server
To configure your mail server and DNS server settings, click E-mail &
DNS in the menu at the left of the Web page and enter the information in
the appropriate boxes.
Note that your DNS server must be entered if you enter a host name
instead of an IP address in E-mail Server under E-mail Setup. This is
also true if host names will be used for Scan to FTP or Scan to
Desktop destinations.
♦ If “DHCP” was selected for the IP address of the machine, the IP address of
the DNS server appears automatically and cannot be changed.

and “Personal Address Book”).
To enable password protection, click Passwords in the Web page
menu and select the “Enable Password Protection of this Web
Site” checkbox. The passwords for “User” and “admin” are both
initially set to “Sharp”. If you wish to change a password, enter
“Sharp” in Old Admin Password, and then enter the new password
under User Password or Admin Password. A password must
consist of alphanumeric characters and be no more than 10
characters long. Passwords are case sensitive.
When you are finished, click Submit to store the new settings and
then turn the machine power off and then back on. The next time you
attempt to access the Web page, you will be prompted for the
password. For the User name, enter “user” if you are accessing the
page as a user, or “admin” if you are accessing the page as an
administrator.
For more information on setting passwords, click Help at the bottom of
the Web page menu.
Network Scanning and Sender E-mail settings
The network scanning settings allow you to select the method for

4. Storing Network Scanning Destinations
Network scanning destinations can be stored in Rapid Keys and
Speed Dial numbers. The Rapid Keys and Speed Dial numbers can
be in a personal book or in the COMMON book.
♦ Scan to E-mail can be performed by manually entering the
destination e-mail address at the time of transmission, or by using a
Rapid Key or Speed Dial number. A Scan to E-mail destination can
be stored in a Rapid Key or Speed Dial number using the Web
page, or using the operation panel on the machine (to use the

destination in a Rapid Key or Speed Dial number when you install the
Network Scanner Tool. After you install and set up the Network
Scanner Tool, access the Web page in the machine from your browser
on your computer, and click Destination Management in the menu to
see which Rapid Key or Speed Dial number your computer is stored
in. This will be the Rapid Key or Speed Dial number you will use to
scan documents to your computer.

8. Installing the Network Scanner Software
To use the Scan to Desktop function, the following two software
programs must be installed in your computer (the destination
computer for Scan to Desktop). The programs are installed from the
CD-ROM that comes with the network scanner expansion kit.
♦ Sharpdesk (Desktop Document Management Software)
♦ Network Scanner Tool
Note: Sharpdesk can be installed and used in 5 computers. If you need to
install Sharpdesk in more than 5 computers, please contact your Sharp
dealer.
Software Programs
For detailed information on each of the software programs, please
refer to the user's guides on the CD-ROM.
Sharpdesk (Desktop Document Management Software)
Sharpdesk lets you manage a variety of electronic information such
as scanned image data from the network scanner or documents
created using word processing or spreadsheet application software.
Some of the important features of Sharpdesk are:
♦ Sharpdesk works with your scanner to let you read paper
documents into your computer using a full-featured set of scanning
controls and options.
♦ Sharpdesk makes editing of your images and documents quick and
easy.
♦ A text image scanned into Sharpdesk can be converted into
editable text for use with your favorite word processor. Sharpdesk
uses an advanced Optical Character Recognition (OCR) engine
that even preserves your document layouts.
Note: For the best results, set the resolution to ULTRA FINE when
scanning a document for OCR conversion.
Network Scanner Tool
This is a utility that helps you use Scan to Desktop. It configures the
necessary settings in the network scanner and client computer to
receive data. In addition, Network Scanner Tool will automatically start
Sharpdesk when image data is received. The scanned image
received by your computer can be:

Installing the Network Scanner Software
• If you select Typical in the installation type screen, Network
Scanner Tool will also be installed. If you only wish to install
Network Scanner Tool, select Custom in the installation type
screen and then check only Network Scanner Tool.
• Sharpdesk Imaging is installed together with Sharpdesk. If Imaging

which is a version of Eastman Software's “Imaging for Windows
Professional Edition” that has been customized for the Sharp
Corporation. If Eastman Software's “Imaging for Windows
Professional Edition” has already been installed on your computer,
Sharpdesk Imaging will not be installed.
• “Imaging for Windows Professional Edition” and Sharpdesk Imaging
use common registry entries, and installing “Imaging for Windows
Professional Edition” after Sharpdesk has been installed may cause
abnormal operation. In this case, uninstall Sharpdesk and
Sharpdesk Imaging, and then install “Imaging for Windows
Professional Edition”. After that, reinstall Sharpdesk.
Setting up Network Scanner Tool
When installation of the software is completed, the Sharp Network
Scanner Tool Setup Wizard will appear. Follow these steps to set up

9. Troubleshooting
Problem:
The recipient can not open the image data.
Check:
Does the recipient have a software program (viewer) that
is compatible with the format of the file sent?
Solution:
Try sending the image using a different file format (TIFF
or PDF) and/or compression method (uncompressed, G3
and G4).
Problem:
Data sent does not reach the recipient.
Check:
Is the image being sent to the correct address? When
using a Rapid Key or Speed Dial number, is the correct
address (e-mail address or FTP address) stored in the
Rapid Key or Speed Dial number?
Solution:
Check the stored address and correct if necessary.
* If Scan to E-mail is not successful, check to see if an
unsuccessful delivery message was sent to your
specified sender’s e-mail address. This may provide
details on the problem.
* To use Scan to Desktop, the Network Scanner Tool
must be installed.
Problem:
Scan to E-mail is not successful.
Check:
The image might have exceeded the file size limit set by
your administrator for e-mail.
Solution:
Reduce the file size (decrease the number of scanned
pages, use a lower resolution setting, or use a higher
compression level such as G4). Contact your
administrator to see if there is a file size limit for e-mail.

Troubleshooting
Problem:
Takes a long time to send an image.
Check:
A large file size can greatly increase the amount of time
required for transmission.
Solution:
Reduce the file size (decrease the number of scanned
pages, use a lower resolution setting, or use a higher
compression level such as G4).
Problem:
Cannot connect to the network.
Check:
The Network Interface Board (NIC) has failed or is not
properly connected.
Solution:
Make sure the NIC is operating properly and is connected to
the network cable. If the problem persists, contact your
administrator or authorized Sharp Dealer.
