Sharing the Printer Installation
You may be using your computer and the printer connected to your
computer in an environment where multiple computers are connected by
a network. In this case, you can share the use of your printer with the
other computers on the network.
If you choose to share the use of your printer, your computer acts as the
host system or server to the other computers (also referred to as remote or
client systems).
Chapter 2
Installing and Getting Started 15
After you set up your printer for sharing, the client systems must install
the printer driver onto their systems. They can do so directly from your
system. Based on which Windows operating system you are using, the
following client system can share your printer:
If your system (server) is:
Install on client system:
Windows 98/Me
Windows 98/Me
Windows 2000/XP
Windows 98/Me or Windows 2000/XP
When a document is printed by the client system to a shared printer, any
printing messages (status or error messages) display on the server
system.
To set up the printer for sharing:
1. On the MultiPASS server system, on the Windows desktop, click
Start.
2.
On the Start menu, point to Settings and then click Printers
(in Windows XP, click Printers and Faxes on the Start menu).
3.
In the Printers window (in Windows XP, the Printers and Faxes
window), click the MultiPASS printer icon.
4.
On the File menu, click Sharing.
If the Sharing command is not available, you need to set up printer
sharing in Windows. For details, see your Windows user
documentation.
5.

As, or Share this printer.
6.
In the Share Name box (Windows 98/Me/XP) or Shared As box
(Windows 2000), type a name you want to assign to the shared
printer.
If available, you may also want to assign a password, which would
then be required by the client system when using the printer.
16 Installing and Getting Started

If your situation matches the following, set up an alternate or
additional driver:
•
Windows 2000/XP server system sharing with Windows 98/Me

window), double-click Add Printer (in Windows XP, click Add a
printer).
5.
Follow the on-screen instructions.
Install the printer driver as a network printer, based on the name
assigned to the shared printer.
You cannot install the printer driver on a client system that has a previous
version of the MultiPASS software (version 4.1 or earlier).
Understanding the My MultiPASS Folders
During the MultiPASS installation, the following My MultiPASS folders
are created, which the MultiPASS system uses to store faxes and scanned
images:
Chapter 2
Installing and Getting Started 17
❏ Outbox (F80 only)
The Outbox folder stores pending and failed fax transmissions.
Pending fax transmissions include documents currently being faxed,
scheduled to be faxed, or on hold.
You can manage faxes in the Outbox using the MultiPASS menu
commands. For more information about managing faxes in the
Outbox, see Chapter 4, “PC Faxing (F80 only).” (P. 63)
❏ Received Faxes (F80 only)
The Received Faxes folder stores received PC faxes. Received PC
faxes are assigned a unique name with a .mlj file name extension.
Unopened received faxes are marked to indicate this status. The
number of unopened faxes is indicated in parentheses after the folder
name. The name of the unopened fax within the folder is marked
with a red icon (in list view) or asterisks (*) both preceding and
following the file name (in icon or thumbnail view).
❏ Scan to Save
When the Save As button on the MultiPASS Toolbar is clicked on, the
image is scanned from the computer and is usually stored in the My
Pictures folder. The factory predefined setting is the My Pictures
folder in My Documents.
If there is no My Pictures folder, the image will be stored in the My
Documents folder. If there is no My Documents folder, it will be
stored in this Scan to Save folder. Scanned documents are assigned a
unique name with a file name extension such as .bmp, .tif, or .jpg
according to the file format. If you have saved a picture and cannot
fine it you can search for it by the file name.
❏ Sent Faxes (F80 only)
After a PC fax is sent successfully, it moves from the Outbox into the
Sent Faxes folder. Sent faxes in this folder are assigned a unique name
with a .mlj file name extension.
18 Installing and Getting Started
Chapter 2
Outbox, Received
Faxes, and Sent Faxes
folders: F80 only
The My MultiPASS folders work within Windows Explorer, and thus
have a similar structure. However, only the system can place documents
into these folders. In addition, you cannot delete, move, or rename these
folders. The folders can only be deleted by uninstalling the MultiPASS
Suite.
You can perform basic Windows Explorer tasks on any document in a My
MultiPASS folder, such as renaming or copying (and then pasting the
document to another Windows folder). You can view documents as
thumbnails, icons, or a list (sorting the list as needed). For more
information, see your Windows Explorer documentation. However, note
the following exceptions for the Outbox folder:
❏ You cannot copy a document in the Outbox folder.
❏
Documents always display as a list in the Outbox folder.
A document remains in a My MultiPASS folder until it is deleted by you
or, additionally for the Outbox folder, moved by the system to the Sent
Faxes folder.
Chapter 2
Installing and Getting Started 19
To open My MultiPASS:
Do one of the following:
❏ On the MultiPASS Toolbar, click MultiPASS.
❏ On the Windows desktop, double-click the My MultiPASS icon.
When you open My MultiPASS, the MultiPASS menu appears on the
menu bar.
To rename a document in a My MultiPASS folder:
1. In the My MultiPASS window, under My MultiPASS, click the
desired folder (Received Faxes, Scan to Save, or Sent Faxes folder
only).
2.
Click the desired document.
3.
On the File menu, click Rename.
4.
In the Rename dialog box, enter the new name for your document.
Because My MultiPASS works within Windows Explorer, as an
alternative, you can open My MultiPASS in Windows Explorer. In
Windows Explorer, My MultiPASS appears under Desktop.
20 Installing and Getting Started
Chapter 2
Reading photographs on the memory card
When you connect the printer, Removable Disk will appear in My
Computer. This is the printer’s memory card drive.
If a memory card used in a digital camera is inserted in the printer and
you open the removable disk, you can open photographs on the memory
card as well as copy them to the hard disk.
You do this in the same way as general files on the hard disk etc.

Chapter 3
Printing
3
Once you have installed the software, you are ready to print a document
from any Windows application that supports printing, such as Word for
Windows.
Your printer is initially installed using factory-predefined settings,
enabling you to print immediately. These settings determine what your
documents look like when printed. For example, the settings define print
properties such as the paper size and page orientation.
Instructions for printing a document can vary somewhat for different
Windows applications. Therefore, for detailed instructions, see the user
documentation for the specific application from which you are printing.
The following instructions summarize the general procedures for printing
a document.
To print a document:
1. With your document open in your Windows application, click the
print command. (In most applications, the print command is on the
File menu or toolbar.) To print your document with the current
driver settings, click the print button on the toolbar.
2.
In the Print dialog box, make sure the printer is selected in the Printer
box.
3.
Click the command to print your document (usually OK or Print).
Changing Print Settings
0
The factory-predefined print settings can be changed when printing a
particular document. For example, to suit your exact printing
requirements, you can define settings for printing a draft copy of a report,
and save the settings as a new print profile.
Chapter 3
Printing 23
Unless you save your settings as a print profile, your settings are
available only for the current print job.
Changes can be made to general quality print settings (such as media
type), and to page setup and special effects you want to apply to your
printed image.
Print settings are changed in the printer’s Properties dialog box. There are
two methods of displaying the printer’s Properties dialog box.
❏ Displaying from the Print dialog box when printing a document
When printing a document, click Properties in the Print dialog box.
Changes made using this method will only be effective for the current
print job.
❏ Displaying from the printer icon
On the Windows desktop click Start, point to Settings and click
Printers. In the Printers window, right-click the printer icon, then
click Properties. (If you are using Windows XP, click Start on the
Windows desktop, then click Printers and Faxes. In the Printers and
Faxes window, right-click the printer icon, then click Printing
Preferences.)
Changes made using this method will be effective for all subsequent
print jobs.
You have two methods by which you can define print settings:
❏ Print Advisor
The Print Advisor displays as a wizard that guides you through a
series of questions. Your responses enable the Print Advisor to
automatically specify the appropriate print settings.
❏ Manually
You can manually change the individual settings to produce the most
desirable results for your printed documents.
To change print settings using the Print Advisor:
1. In the Print dialog box when printing your document, click
Properties.

With your printer, you can send and receive faxes from and to your PC.
You can also set up an Address Book, containing fax and e-mail
information for people to whom you often send faxes. To assist you in
managing your faxes, a Fax Log maintains a record of every fax you send
or receive.
Before sending a PC fax, confirm that you have specified a unit name and
fax number for your printer in the Device setup. For more information,
see Chapter 7, “Fine-tuning the MultiPASS Suite.” (P. 147)
Sending a Fax from Your Computer
(PC Faxing)
0
You can send a PC fax from any Windows application that supports
document printing.
The MultiPASS Suite sends the PC fax to the Outbox, where progress is
tracked until it is actually transmitted. If you specified multiple
recipients, an individual fax job for each recipient is generated. Once
transmitted, the fax is placed in the Sent Faxes folder. A record of the sent
fax is also recorded in the Fax Log. If a fax fails (for example, because of
an incorrect fax number), it remains in the Outbox until you attempt to
resend it or delete it.
You can send a fax as an e-mail message if you have a Messaging
Application Program Interface (MAPI) compliant application installed.
The e-mail application must be set up as the system default MAPI client.
For details, see your e-mail application documentation.

information about Receive Fax settings, see Chapter 7, “Fine-tuning the
MultiPASS Suite.” (P. 147))
You can receive a fax regardless of whether your computer is turned on
or off.
❏ If the computer is on
If your computer is turned on when the printer receives a fax,
depending on the When Computer is On setting, the fax is either
printed directly by the printer, or uploaded to the My MultiPASS
Received Faxes folder.
❏ If the computer is off
If your computer is turned off when the printer receives a fax,
depending on the When Computer is Off setting, the fax is either
printed directly by the printer, or saved in printer memory.
If your computer is going to be off for a long time, or you are
expecting many incoming faxes, it is recommended that you set the
printer to automatically print incoming faxes. This setting enables
you to leave the computer off for a long time, and still be assured of
receiving your faxes.

Setting Up an Address Book
0
Using an address book can make sending a PC fax quicker and easier.
When set up, the address book contains a list of names, fax and phone
numbers, and e-mail addresses for contacts to whom you send PC faxes.
You can also use address book entries for defining speed dial assignments
for your printer.
The MultiPASS Suite uses Windows Address Book (WAB), a (.wab) file
for your contact information. When you first decide to use an address
book, you designate whether you want to set up the WAB file directly in
My MultiPASS or use a previously set up WAB file provided with
Windows. Whichever WAB file you designate, you can use My
MultiPASS to add and edit any contact information. If you choose to set
up an address book in My MultiPASS, you can later change your
designated WAB file and use a different address book for MultiPASS.
To designate the address book to use:
1. On the Windows Desktop, click Start, point to Programs or All
Programs, point to Canon MultiPASS Suite, and then click Canon
MultiPASS Address Book Profile.

Distribution lists identify two or more contact entries to whom you
repeatedly send the same PC fax. For example, you may want to
setup a distribution list to include those contacts involved in a
particular business project. When you specify the distribution list
entry as the fax recipient on your PC fax, the PC fax is sent to each
contact in the list. If you specify more than one distribution list
address for a fax, and the distribution lists contain the same contacts,
the duplicate contacts are automatically removed.

Scanning
5
You can use the printer to scan documents by the following methods:
❏ Using the MultiPASS Toolbar
The MultiPASS Toolbar (also referred to as the Toolbar) enables you
to scan a document or image into your PC. The appearance of the
Toolbar can change based on the settings (such as shown buttons and
size) you define for the Toolbar.
❏ Using a TWAIN or WIA compliant Windows application
If you are using Windows 98/Me/2000, use ScanGear for MultiPASS,
the TWAIN-compliant driver. You cannot use a WIA-compliant
driver. If you are using Windows XP, you can use either the ScanGear
for MultiPASS or the WIA-compliant driver. On the MultiPASS
Toolbar, click on Settings and then choose which driver you would
like to use. Both drivers allow you to use a printer to scan documents
to a Windows application such as a PhotoShop, that supports a
TWAIN interface. Some applications allow multiple page scans,
while others do not. If you are unsure whether your Windows
application supports this feature, refer to the user documentation for
the application you are using.
When you scan a document, the system uses predefined settings that
determine the characteristics of your scanned image (such as the image
type and resolution), enabling you to begin scanning immediately.
However, you can change these settings as needed.
Chapter 5
Scanning 89
To scan an image with the Toolbar:
When two or more pages are scanned from the ADF (Automatic

Place your image facedown on the platen glass, or load it in the
automatic document feeder (F80 only), of your printer.
If the file format is not TIFF, only one sheet can be scanned if you plan

the Scan to Save folder.
This save location can be changed with the Toolbar Settings.
Scanned documents are assigned a unique name with a file name
extension such as .bmp, .tif, or .jpg according to the file format.
•
Click Viewer to scan your document and automatically have it
display in a graphic application (such as MultiPASS Viewer).
