Consumables
Do not dispose of used toner cartridges in open flames. Also, do not store toner cartridges or paper in a location exposed to
open flames. This may cause the toner to ignite, and result in burns or fire.
If you accidentally spill or scatter toner, carefully wipe up the loose toner with a damp, soft cloth and avoid inhaling any toner
dust. Do not use a vacuum cleaner that is not equipped with safety measures to prevent dust explosions to clean up loose
toner. Doing so may cause damage to the vacuum cleaner or result in a dust explosion due to static discharge.
Use caution not to inhale any toner. If you should inhale toner, consult a physician immediately.
Use caution so that toner does not get into your eyes or mouth. If toner should get into your eyes or mouth, immediately
wash with cold water and consult a physician.
Use caution so that toner does not come into contact with your skin. If it should, wash with soap and cold water. If there is
any irritation on your skin, consult a physician immediately.
Keep the toner cartridges and other consumables out of the reach of small children. If toner is ingested, consult a physician or
poison control center immediately.
Do not disassemble or modify the toner cartridge. Doing so may cause the toner to scatter.
Remove the sealing tape of the toner cartridge completely without using excessive force. Doing otherwise may cause the toner
to scatter.
IMPORTANT
Handling the toner cartridge

Placing Documents on the Platen Glass
Placing Documents in the Feeder
IMPORTANT
Use documents that are completely dry
When placing documents, make sure that any glue, ink, or correction fluid on the documents has completely dried.
To avoid paper jams
Do not place the following types of documents in the feeder as this may cause paper jams:
Wrinkled or creased paper
Carbon paper or carbon-backed paper
Curled or rolled paper
Coated paper
Torn paper
Onion skin or thin paper
Stapled or clipped documents
Paper printed by a thermal transfer printer
Transparencies
NOTE
To scan documents more accurately
Documents placed in the feeder are scanned while being fed into the machine. On the other hand, documents placed on the
platen glass remain in a fixed position while they are scanned. To ensure more accurate scanning results, placing documents on
the platen glass is recommended.
To scan tracing paper or transparencies
To scan transparent documents (for example, tracing paper or transparencies), place them on the platen glass.
Placing Documents on the Platen Glass

Open the feeder.
㻢㻤㻌㻛㻌㻢㻣㻢
2
Place the document face down on the platen glass.
Align the corner of the document with the top-left corner of the platen glass.
NOTE:
To scan transparent documents (for example, tracing paper or transparencies), cover them with plain white paper.
3
Gently close the feeder.
The machine is ready to scan the document.
When scanning is complete, remove the document from the platen glass.
Placing Documents in the Feeder
1
Spread the document guides apart.
Slide the document guides outward until they are slightly farther apart than the actual document width.
Pull out the tray extension when loading large documents to prevent them from drooping over the edge of the feeder.
2
Fan the document stack and align the edges.
Fan the document stack in small batches, and align the edges by lightly tapping the stack on a flat surface a few times.

Curled or rolled paper
Torn paper
Damp paper
Very thin paper
Paper printed by a thermal transfer printer
Highly textured paper
Glossy paper
Paper handling and storage
Store the paper on a flat surface.
Keep the paper wrapped in its original package to protect the paper from moisture or dryness.
Do not store the paper in such a way that may cause it to curl or fold.
Do not store the paper vertically or stack too much paper.
Do not store the paper in direct sunlight, or in a place subject to high humidity, dryness, or drastic changes in temperature
or humidity.
㻣㻞㻌㻛㻌㻢㻣㻢
NOTE
When printing on paper that has absorbed moisture
Steam may emit from the paper output area, or water droplets may form on the back side of the operation panel or around
the paper output area. There is nothing unusual about any of these occurrences, which occur when the heat generated from
fixing toner on the paper causes moisture in the paper to evaporate (most likely to occur at low room temperatures).

Google Cloud Print is a service that enables a user who has a Google account to print from applications such as Google Docs™ or Gmail™
via a smartphone, tablet, or computer connected to the Internet. Unlike conventional printing from a computer, Google Cloud Print is a
new technology that enables you to print by connecting a printer directly to the Web. For example, if you want to print an e-mail or files
that are attached to an e-mail, you can print just by using Gmail for mobile. You will find your printouts when you go to the machine.
IMPORTANT
When registering the machine or when using Google Cloud Print to print documents, you must be able to connect the machine
to the Internet. You are also responsible for paying all Internet connection fees.

scanned documents in PDF, JPEG or TIFF format.
Available USB Memory Devices
You can use USB memory devices with the following format styles.
FAT16 (memory capacity: up to 2 GB)
FAT32 (memory capacity: up to 32 GB)
IMPORTANT
Do not use non-standard USB memory devices. You may not be able to save data properly in some USB memory devices.
Do not connect anything other than a USB memory device. USB memory devices cannot be connected via a USB hub or an
extension cable.
Do not use USB memory devices with special functions such as built-in security functions.
NOTE
The USB memory port of the machine supports USB 2.0.
If a folder in a USB memory device has many files, saving scanned data will take more time. Use your computer to delete
unnecessary files on your USB memory device or move them to a different folder.
1
Connect a USB memory device to the USB memory port.
IMPORTANT:
Do not remove the USB memory device or shock or shake the device or the machine when data is being read or written. Also, do
not turn OFF the machine while the processing is in progress.

If you select JPEG in <File Format>, only one page can be scanned when the document is placed on the platen glass. To scan
multiple documents at a time, place them in the feeder. These documents will be scanned and saved as separate files. For PDF or
TIFF files, multiple documents can be scanned and saved into one set of files, regardless of whether documents are placed on
the platen glass or in the feeder.

How the folders to save scanned data and files are named
When scanning is complete, a folder is automatically created in the USB memory device to save the scanned data. Folders and
files are named as follows.
7
Folder
Name
The "SCAN_00" folder is created and up to 100 files are saved in the folder. The folders "SCAN_01" to "SCAN_99" are
then created when the current folder becomes full of 100 files.
File
Name
File names from "SCAN0000.XXX" to "SCAN9999.XXX" are given to the scanned data files ("XXX" is the extension for
the file format such as "JPG"). For the first two numerical digits, the same number is allotted as that of the folder
number in which the files are saved. For example, The fifth JPEG file stored in the "SCAN_01" folder is named
"SCAN0105.JPG".

Monitoring and Controlling the Machine with SNMP
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a protocol for monitoring and controlling communication devices in a network by using
Management Information Base (MIB). The machine supports SNMPv1 and security-enhanced SNMPv3. You can check the status of the
machine from a computer when you print documents or use the Remote UI. You can enable either SNMPv1 or SNMPv3, or both at the
same time. Specify the settings for each version to suit your network environment and the purpose of use.
SNMPv1
SNMPv1 uses information called "community" to define the scope of SNMP communication. Because this information is exposed to the
network in plain text, your network will be vulnerable to attacks. If you want to ensure network security, disable SNMPv1 and use
SNMPv3.
SNMPv3
With SNMPv3, you can implement network device management that is protected by robust security features. Note that SSL must be
enabled for the Remote UI before configuring SNMPv3 ( Enabling SSL Encrypted Communication for the Remote UI).
NOTE
The machine does not support the trap notification feature of SNMP.
To change the port number of SNMP, see
Changing Port Numbers.
SNMP management software, when installed on a computer on the network, enables you to configure, monitor, and control the
machine remotely from the computer. For more information, see the instruction manuals for your management software.

Enabling Both SNMPv1 and SNMPv3
If both versions of SNMP are enabled, it is recommended that MIB access permission in SNMPv1 be set to [Read Only]. MIB
access permission can be set independently in SNMPv1 and SNMPv3 (and for each user in SNMPv3). Selecting [Read/Write] (full
access permission) in SNMPv1 negates the robust security features that characterize SNMPv3 because most of the machine
settings can then be controlled with SNMPv1.

Configuring SLP Communication with imageWARE
You can facilitate the collection and management of various information about networked devices by implementing device management
software, such as imageWARE Enterprise Management Console * , into the network. Information such as device settings, Address Books,
and error logs is retrieved and distributed via the server computer. If the machine is connected to such a network, imageWARE searches
the network for the machine by using protocols such as Service Location Protocol (SLP) to gather information from the machine, including
the power status. SLP settings can be specified via the Remote UI.
* For more information about imageWARE, contact your local authorized Canon dealer.

Security
Confidential information is handled by information devices everywhere, including computers and printers, and any of these devices may
become a target for malicious third parties at anytime. Attackers may directly gain unauthorized access to your devices, or indirectly take
advantage of negligence or improper use. Either way, you may incur unanticipated losses when your confidential information is leaked.
To counter these risks, the machine is equipped with a variety of security functions. Set the necessary configuration depending on your
network environment.

Setting Access Privileges
Protect the machine from unauthorized access by only allowing users with access privileges to use the machine. Access privileges are set
separately for each account, or "ID." A PIN can be set for each ID. If a user tries to operate the machine when IDs are enabled, a logon
screen is displayed, and the user must enter a correct ID and PIN to use the machine.
IDs are divided into two types: System Manager ID, which is intended exclusively for Administrators, and Department ID for general
users. System Manager ID is an account with full access privileges. With System Manager ID, you can restrict the use of functions, such
as color copying and faxing, for each ID. If these two types of IDs are used at the same time, two different privilege levels are set,
which makes it possible to flexibly manage the machine and enhance security.
System Manager ID
System Manager ID is an account with full access privileges. If you specify a System Manager ID, you need to log on to the machine
using the System Manager ID information in order to access <Network Settings> or <System Management Settings>. Set the System
Manager ID when you need different access privilege levels for Administrators and general users. Only one System Manager ID can
be registered.

Department ID (Department ID Management)
You can specify access privileges for a user (or group of users) by registering a Department ID. You can register multiple Department
IDs. If a user tries to operate the machine when Department IDs are enabled, a logon screen is displayed, and the user must enter
their own Department ID and PIN to use the machine. Information for each Department ID can be viewed, such as how many pages
have been copied, printed, or scanned in black and white or color.

Setting a Proxy
A proxy (or HTTP proxy server) refers to a computer or software that carries out HTTP communication for other devices, especially when
communicating with resources outside the network, such as when browsing Web sites. The client devices connect to the outside network
through the proxy server, and do not communicate directly to the resources outside. Setting a proxy not only facilitates management of
traffic between in-house and outside networks but also blocks unauthorized access and consolidates anti-virus protection for enhanced
security. When you use Google Cloud Print to print over the Internet, you can enhance security by setting a proxy. When setting a proxy,
make sure that you have the necessary proxy information, including the IP address, port number, and a user name and password for
authentication.

Implementing Robust Security Features
Authorized users may incur unanticipated losses from attacks by malicious third parties, such as sniffing, spoofing, and tampering of data
as it flows over a network. To protect your important and valuable information from these attacks, the machine supports the following
features to enhance security and secrecy.
SSL Encrypted Communication
SSL is a protocol for encryption for data sent over a network and is often used for communication via a Web browser or an e-mail
application. SSL enables secure network communication when you access the machine from a computer via the Remote UI.
Enabling SSL Encrypted Communication for the Remote UI
IPSec Communication
While SSL only encrypts data used on a specific application, such as a Web browser or an e-mail application, IPSec encrypts the

whole (or payloads of) IP packets. This enables IPSec to offer a more versatile security system than SSL.
Settings
IEEE 802.1X Authentication
IEEE 802.1X is a standard and mechanism for blocking unauthorized access to the network by collectively managing user
authentication information. If a device tries to connect to the 802.1X network, the device must go through user authentication in
order to prove that the connection is made by an authorized user. Authentication information is sent to and checked by a RADIUS
server, which permits or rejects communication to the network depending on the authentication result. If authentication fails, a LAN
switch (or an access point) blocks access from the outside of the network. The machine can connect to an 802.1X network as a client

Enabling SSL Encrypted Communication for the Remote UI
You can encrypt communication between the machine and a Web browser on the computer by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). SSL is
a mechanism for encrypting data sent or received over the network. SSL must be enabled when the Remote UI is used for specifying
settings for IPSec (Pre-Shared Key Method), IEEE 802.1X authentication (TTLS/PEAP), or SNMPv3. To use SSL for the Remote UI, you
need to set a key pair and enable the SSL function. Generate or install the key pair for SSL before enabling SSL ( Configuring

Configuring IPSec Settings
Internet Protocol Security (IPSec or IPsec) is a protocol suite for encrypting data transported over a network, including Internet networks.
While SSL only encrypts data used on a specific application, such as a Web browser or an e-mail application, IPSec encrypts either whole
IP packets or the payloads of IP packets, offering a more versatile security system. The IPSec of the machine works in transport mode,
in which the payloads of IP packets are encrypted. With this feature, the machine can connect directly to a computer that is in the same
virtual private network (VPN). Check the system requirements and set the necessary configuration on the computer before you configure
the machine.
System Requirements
IPSec that is supported by the machine conforms to RFC2401, RFC2402, RFC2406, and RFC4305.

Before using IPSec for encrypted communication, you need to register security policies (SP). A security policy consists of the groups of
settings described below. Up to 10 policies can be registered. After registering policies, specify the order in which they are applied.
Selector
Selector defines conditions for IP packets to apply IPSec communication. Selectable conditions include IP addresses and port
numbers of the machine and the devices to communicate with.
IKE
IKE configures the IKEv1 that is used for key exchange protocol. Note that instructions vary depending on the authentication method
selected.
[Pre-Shared Key Method]
A key of up to 24 alphanumeric characters can be shared with the other devices. Enable SSL for the Remote UI before specifying this
authentication method ( Enabling SSL Encrypted Communication for the Remote UI).
[Digital Signature Method]
The machine and the other devices authenticate each other by mutually verifying their digital signatures. Generate or install the key
pair beforehand ( Configuring Settings for Key Pairs and Digital Certificates).
AH/ESP
Specify the settings for AH/ESP, which is added to packets during IPSec communication. AH and ESP can be used at the same time.

Configuring IEEE 802.1X Authentication
The machine can connect to an 802.1X network as a client device. A typical 802.1X network consists of a RADIUS server (authentication
server), LAN switch (authenticator), and client devices with authentication software (supplicants). If a device tries to connect to the
802.1X network, the device must go through user authentication in order to prove that the connection is made by an authorized user.
Authentication information is sent to and checked by a RADIUS server, which permits or rejects communication to the network depending
on the authentication result. If authentication fails, a LAN switch (or an access point) blocks access from the outside of the network.
Select the authentication method from the options below. If necessary, install or register a key pair or CA certificate before configuring
IEEE 802.1X authentication ( Using CA-issued Key Pairs and Digital Certificates).
TLS
The machine and the authentication server authenticate each other by mutually verifying their certificates. A key pair issued by a
certification authority (CA) is required for the client authentication (when authenticating the machine). For the server authentication,
a CA certificate installed via the Remote UI can be used in addition to a CA certificate preinstalled in the machine. The TLS method
cannot be used with TTLS or PEAP at the same time.
TTLS
This authentication method uses a user name and password for the client authentication and a CA certificate for the server
authentication. MSCHAPv2 or PAP can be selected as the internal protocol. TTLS can be used with PEAP at the same time. Enable SSL
for the Remote UI before configuring this authentication method ( Enabling SSL Encrypted Communication for the Remote UI).
PEAP
The required settings are almost the same as those of TTLS. MS-CHAPv2 is used as the internal protocol. Enable SSL for the Remote
UI before configuring this authentication method ( Enabling SSL Encrypted Communication for the Remote UI).

Configuring Settings for Key Pairs and Digital Certificates
In order to encrypt communication with a remote device, an encryption key must be sent and received over an unsecured network
beforehand. This problem is solved by public-key cryptography. Public-key cryptography ensures secure communication by protecting
important and valuable information from attacks, such as sniffing, spoofing, and tampering of data as it flows over a network.
Key Pair
A key pair consists of a public key and a secret key, both of which are required for encrypting or decrypting data.
Because data that has been encrypted with one of the key pair cannot be returned to its original data form without
the other, public-key cryptography ensures secure communication of data over the network. Up to five key pairs can
be registered ( Using CA-issued Key Pairs and Digital Certificates). For SSL encrypted communication, a key
pair can be generated for the machine ( Generating Key Pairs).
CA Certificate
Digital certificates including CA certificates are similar to other forms of identification, such as driver's licenses. A
digital certificate contains a digital signature, which enables the machine to detect any spoofing or tampering of data.
It is extremely difficult for third parties to abuse digital certificates. A digital certificate that contains a public key of a
certification authority (CA) is referred to as a CA certificate. CA certificates are used for verifying the device the
machine is communicating with for features such as printing with Google Cloud Print or IEEE 802.1X authentication.
Up to 10 CA certificates can be registered, including the five certificates that are preinstalled in the machine ( Using
CA-issued Key Pairs and Digital Certificates).
Key and Certificate Requirements
The certificate contained in a key pair generated with the machine conforms to X.509v3. If you install a key pair or a CA certificate from
a computer, make sure that they meet the following requirements:
Format
File extension
Key pair: PKCS#12*1
CA certificate: X.509v1 or X.509v3, DER (encoded binary)
Key pair: ".p12" or ".pfx"
CA certificate: ".cer"
Public key algorithm
(and key length)
RSA (512 bits, 1024 bits, 2048 bits, or 4096 bits)
Certificate signature algorithm
SHA1-RSA, SHA256-RSA, SHA384-RSA*2, SHA512-RSA*2, MD5-RSA, or MD2-RSA
Certificate thumbprint algorithm
SHA1
*1 Requirements for the certificate contained in a key pair are pursuant to CA certificates.
*2 SHA384-RSA and SHA512-RSA are available only when the RSA key length is 1024 bits or more.
NOTE
The machine does not support use of a certificate revocation list (CRL).

Scan Only What You Need
What if you're scanning a whole page of a newspaper but all you're really interested in is a headline and a photo? Use
ScanGear MF. You can select what you want from a preview, and then have the scanner disregard the rest. Otherwise
you'll have to use an editing program to crop out everything you don't need.
IMPORTANT
Using your product to scan, print or otherwise reproduce certain documents, and the use of such images as
scanned, printed or otherwise reproduced by your product, may be prohibited by law and may result in criminal
and/or civil liability. If you are uncertain about the legality of using your product to scan, print or otherwise
reproduce any particular document, and/or of the use of the images scanned, printed or otherwise reproduced,
you should consult in advance with your legal advisor for guidance.

Configuring Scan Settings in ScanGear MF.
Searchable PDFs
You can convert scanned documents to regular PDF files, or you can go a step further and make the text in that scanned
document searchable. There's a lot more you can do with a PDF file when you make it text-searchable. To do this, just
select "PDF" as the scan type when you scan with MF Toolbox.
For more information about this function, see
Scanning Using MF Toolbox.
Convert Text in Scanned Documents
Text normally gets scanned as an image, but you can convert it into text that can also be edited. Select "OCR" as the scan
type when you scan with MF Toolbox. The software that comes with this machine will convert any text in the scanned
image into text data that you can then edit with a text editor.
For more information about this function, see
Scanning Using MF Toolbox.
Add Images to a Work in Progress
Some applications work with the machine to let you easily import scanned images directly into documents you're working
on. This way you can skip the steps of opening a separate application just for receiving the scanned images and then
exporting them to the application you're really using.
