upon the AXIS 7100 serial number. You will find the number on the
underside label.
•
Using DHCP
IP Address
Acquire an unused IP address from your Network Administrator.
Follow these steps to use the DHCP method:
27
28
Basic Installation
AXIS 7100 User’s Manual
1. Edit or create a scope in the DHCP manager of the DHCP
daemon. For Windows NT servers, refer to the “Windows NT
Resource Kit” on how to do this. The entries made in this
scope typically include the following parameters:
• Range of IP addresses
• Subnet mask
• Default router IP address
• Lease duration
• Mail server IP address
• DNS server IP address
• Domain name
• NTP server IP address
2. Activate the scope.
Notes:
• DHCP is enabled by default but can be disabled by an Administrator
using the System Settings page.
• The IP address and all the other settings will be downloaded automatically. You do not need to restart the AXIS 7100.
Using ARP in Windows
In Windows 95/98 and Windows NT, you can download the IP
address using ARP. Perform the following commands to
download the IP address and verify the communication.
Important!
Windows 95 only: If the ARP table is empty, you must first ping an existing unit on your
network before setting the IP address of your AXIS 7100. Type arp -a to display the ARP
table.
From the DOS prompt, type the following:
arp -s <Internet address> <Ethernet address>
ping <Internet address>
AXIS 7100 User’s Manual
Basic Installation
The Ethernet address equals the serial number of the AXIS
7100 with each pair of digits separated by a hyphen.
Example:
arp -s 172.16.253.80 00-40-8c-11-00-86
ping 172.16.253.80
The host will return ‘Reply from 172.16.253.80...’ or a
similar message. This indicates that the address has been set and
that the communication is established.
Notes:
• ARP is enabled by default but can be disabled by an Administrator
using the System Settings page.
• Once the AXIS 7100 has established communication using an appropriate IP address, the arp/ping commands cannot be used to
change the address. The reason for this is to avoid accidental or unauthorized changes of the IP address. Restart the AXIS 7100 to make it
accept the setting of the IP address. You can perform a restart
remotely via the AXIS 7100 web interface. See “Specifying the System
Settings ”on page 39.
• When you execute the ping command for the first time, the response
time may be significantly longer than usual.
Using ARP in
UNIX and OS/2
In UNIX and OS/2, type the following commands to download
the IP address and verify the communication:
arp -s <host name> <Ethernet or node address> temp
ping <host name>
The Ethernet address or node address equals the AXIS 7100
serial number with each pair of digits separated by a colon.
29
30
Basic Installation
AXIS 7100 User’s Manual
Example:
arp -s spserv 00:40:8c:11:00:86 temp
ping spserv
The host will return ‘spserv is alive’ or a similar message.
This indicates that the address has been set and that
communication is established.
Notes:
• ARP is enabled by default but can be disabled by an Administrator
using the System Settings page.
• The arp -s command may vary between different systems. Some
BSD-type systems expect the host name and Ethernet address in
reverse order. IBM AIX systems require the additional argument
ether for Ethernet networks, e.g. arp -s ether spserv
00:40:8c:11:00:86 temp
• Once the AXIS 7100 has established communication using an appropriate IP address, the arp/ping commands cannot be used to
change the address. The reason is to avoid accidental or unauthorized
change of the IP address. Restart the AXIS 7100 to make it accept the
setting. You can perform a restart remotely via the AXIS 7100 web
interface. See “Specifying the System Settings ”on page 39.
• When you execute the ping command for the first time, the response
time may be significantly longer than usual.
Using RARP
in UNIX
Follow these steps to download the IP address using the RARP
method:
1. Append the following line to your Ethernet address table.
This is typically performed by editing the file /etc/ethers.
<Ethernet address>
<host name>
Example:
00:40:8c:24:c0:1c
spserv
AXIS 7100 User’s Manual

2. If necessary, update your host table and alias name databases
as required by your system.
3. Start the RARP daemon, if it is not already running. This is
typically performed using the command rarpd -a
4. Restart the AXIS 7100 to download the IP address.
Note:
RARP is enabled by default but can be disabled by an Administrator using
the System Settings page.
Using BOOTP
in UNIX
Follow these steps to download the IP address using the BOOTP
method:
1. Append the following entry to your boot table. This is
typically performed by editing the file /etc/bootptab.
<host name>:ht=<hardware type>:vm=<vendor magic>:\
:ha=<hardware address>:ip=<Internet address>:\
:sm=<subnet mask>:gw=<gateway field>
where:
ht

Mapping a Host Name to the IP Address
If you are using host names, you can map a unique host name to
the acquired IP address. Refer to your system manuals or to your
Network Administrator for instructions on how to perform the
name mapping on your particular system.
Note:
If the host name has not been included in the system host table, you can
still perform the following instructions on how to download the IP
address.
In this case, simply replace the host name entry with the IP address
wherever needed.
Registering and
Resolving
Host Names
In order to register the host name of the AXIS 7100 in networks
with dynamic IP address settings, WINS (Windows Internet
Name Service) is supported. It is recommended that this method
is used if you are setting the IP address of the AXIS 7100 using
DHCP.
WINS host name rules
WINS only supports 15 character long host names. If your host
name is longer than 15 characters, the AXIS 7100 truncates the
host name to 15 characters when registering with a WINS server.
AXIS 7100 User’s Manual
Basic Installation
Notes:
• The host name limitations conclude that the host name should be no
longer than 15 characters and it should only contain the characters
‘A - Z’, ‘a-z’ and ‘-’.
• Refer to your system manuals or to your network administrator for
instructions on how host name resolutions are performed on your
system.

3. Enter the IP Address of your AXIS 7100
Notes:
• If the IP address is changed, you must re-establish the HTTP communication using the new address.
• If DHCP, BOOTP or RARP is enabled, your manual settings might be
overridden when you restart the AXIS 7100.
• You can also set the IP address from the AXIS 7100 control panel.
Refer to “Assigning an IP Address” on page 22.
4. Enter the IP address for the Default Router. All traffic directed
outside the local network (according to the subnet mask) is sent
to the default router. Any re-routing via other routers is done
automatically. The setting 0.0.0.0 indicates that no default
router is set.
5. Specify the Subnet Mask used for determining when the traffic
should be sent via a router. This number combined with the IP
address identifies on which network the AXIS 7100 is located.
For example, the normal class C mask is 255.255.255.0. The
setting 0.0.0.0 indicates that automatic router sensing is used.

Notes:
• Compression techniques are distinguished by whether they remove
detail from the image. CCITT encoding is a family of lossless compression techniques for black/white images, of which CCIT G.4 is the most
efficient compression method.
• Although the generated TIFF files do not contain searchable text, you
can use an Optical Character Recognition (OCR) application to convert the bitmap to text that can be edited, indexed, searched or copied to other files.
• The generated PDF image files do not contain searchable text. You
can use Adobe Capture or the built-in capture function in Adobe
Acrobat to make the text searchable.

Sending Methods
The AXIS 7100 supports the following basic methods for
distributing scanned and copied documents over the network:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Send-to e-mail destinations
Send-to-file destinations
Send-to-printer destinations
Send-to-RightFax
Send-to-URL
Send-to-Web browser
The AXIS 7100 allows scanned documents from WORKiO digital
imaging systems copiers to be distributed to e-mail, file and
printer destinations.
In addition to the resident profiles and destinations established
by your Administrator, users can also create both temporary email destinations and profiles, using either the Web-based user
interface or user keyboard (if connected by your administrator).
AXIS 7100 User’s Manual
Destinations
Using the AXIS 7100
Documents are typically distributed using the AXIS 7100 control
panel or an attached PC compatible keyboard (if connected by
your administrator), to selected e-mail, fax, file or printer
destinations.
Users can add temporary e-mail destinations using the Web
interface or keyboard if the destination you wish to send your
document to does not exist in the destination list.
Contact your Administrator if you wish to add a new file or
printer destination, or add a permanent e-mail address.
If there is a keyboard connected to the AXIS 7100, and if the
option to Specify a file name for a file destination
(admin|Edit|User Options) is enabled by the administrator, the
user can also enter a new file name for the file destination or email destination.
Send-to-E-mail
This allows document images to be distributed to any e-mail
address defined in the destination list.
E-mail transfer uses the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP)
whereby the document image is sent as a MIME-encoded e-mail
attachment, or stored on a file server as an accessible hyperlink
within an e-mail notification. Double-clicking the hyperlink or
an e-mail attachment that is associated with an image viewer
automatically starts the appropriate application.
Send-to-File
This means that the document image is sent to and then stored
on a networked storage device. This could be on a server, a
client with a shared drive, a mainframe, or any chosen network
device available to your filing system. Image files are distributed
and archived using the File Transfer Protocol (FTP) that
facilitates the storage of files over the Internet.
Typically a file is sent to a specific software management
application, for example groupware, document management and
workflow systems.
87
88
Using the AXIS 7100
AXIS 7100 User’s Manual
Note:
Users can arrange to have their own directories on an FTP server to which
they can send document image information. In operating systems like
Windows 95/98 and Windows NT/2000, shortcuts to image directories
can be placed directly on the user’s desktop. This gives easy access to the
document image information.
It is strongly recommended that you choose the send-to-print
function for distributing documents to printer destinations.
However, in some circumstances it may be desirable to send an
image to a network printer using the send-to-file function
instead. To do this, you must ensure that the destination printer
supports FTP and PCL, or FTP and TIFF. Refer to the AXIS 7100
Support Web for more information.
Send-to-URL
Sending to URL (Uniform Resource Locator) is a combination of
send-to-e-mail and send-to-file, where images/documents are
stored on a file server. The recipient will receive an e-mail
containing the URL (Web link) to the file, instead of an e-mail
attachment. This off-loads the mail server from handling large
attachments.
Send-to-Web Browser
This is a convenient method for users that do not have an e-mail
address. It is also useful if you want to experiment with many
different profiles.
Simply place the document in your scanning device and access
the AXIS 7100 from a standard Web browser. Scanning is
triggered directly from your Web browser and the image is saved
within the Web browser dialog. The Web browser displays the
image in an associated viewer or asks you to save the file,
depending on the associated image format.
Send-to-Printer
This allows document images to be distributed to any printer
defined in the AXIS 7100 destination list using either Raw TCP
or LPD as the printing method.
AXIS 7100 User’s Manual
Using the AXIS 7100
Raw TCP printing support means that you can distribute your
document images across network segments to any TCP/IP printer
connected on a local or remote network.
Send-to-RightFax
This allows document images to be distributed to a RightFax
server defined in the AXIS 7100 destination list using either email (SMPT) or LPD as the data transfer method. For more
information on RightFax destinations, please refer to “RightFax
Integration with SMTP” on page 70 or “RightFax Integration
with LPD” on page 71.

Notes:
• By scanning multiple pages, you can add several pages to one image
file. See “Multipage Image Files” on page 93.
• If no operations are performed within five minutes of allocation, the
AXIS 7100 will return to its default settings.
• The AXIS 7100 keeps all temporary settings in memory for a set time
(about 1-2 minutes) from the last scan, and then resets all settings to
the default settings.
Note: if authentication is enabled, the time span before memory reset
is set by the administrator.
Multipage Image Files
Multipage documents are by default, collated and output into a
single PDF or TIFF image file.
Deselect the All pages in one file parameter only if you want
each page to appear separately in several PDF or TIFF files.
Notes:
• The PCL format sends several pages in a single PCL file.
• TIFF viewers not supporting multipage image files require that the
Multipage Documents parameter is set to Separate file for each page
using a profile. Alternatively, scan each page using the Send button.
• Double-sided is only available if the scanning device supports duplexing.
Paper orientation on
WORKiO copiers
To receive an upright image, the setting should be “Portrait” and
the paper should be placed with the short-edge in the ADF
(Automatic Document Feeder) or in the A4-R position on the
flatbed inside the digital copier.
Note:
The PDF rotation option can be used to enable the same feeder
orientation as when copying i.e long-edge first.

• You must press the Add button or the Send button on the control
panel within 5 minutes. Otherwise, the operation will be executed
automatically.
• The Reserve Scanner function is not available when Authentication is enabled.
Viewing Image Files
The AXIS 7100 generates standard TIFF and PDF formats that
are supported by most image-related applications; and PCL
format, that is supported by most printers.
Although the AXIS 7100 does not rely on any product-specific
software installed on each client, tools for viewing and
manipulating the images are required.
There are basically two different types of imaging tools:
•
•
Tools for Image/Picture
Editing
Tools optimized for image/picture editing
Tools optimized for handling scanned documents
Most tools will work, as long as TIFF formats are supported.

Using the AXIS 7100
Tools for Viewing, OCR
and Archiving
AXIS 7100 User’s Manual
Tools for viewing, OCR and archiving generally support
multipage compressed TIFF. Document viewers are optimized for
presenting document data in a readable format on a screen.
Tools that combine viewing and simple archiving are becoming
increasingly popular.
• Although the generated TIFF image files do not contain searchable
text, you can use an Optical Character Recognition (OCR) application
to convert the bitmap to text that can be corrected, indexed,
searched or copied to other files.
• The generated PDF image files do not contain searchable text. You
can use Adobe Capture or the built-in capture function in Adobe
Acrobat to make the text searchable.
Acrobat Reader
The PDF format requires the Adobe Acrobat Reader. Acrobat
Readers for Windows (3.1, 95/98, ME, NT, 2000), Macintosh and
UNIX can be downloaded free of charge from Adobe Systems
Web site http://www.adobe.com
Adobe Acrobat Reader is also supplied on the AXIS Product CD.
Notes:
• When using the “Text” profiles for scanning documents, make sure
that the viewing tool supports multipage CCITT G.4-compressed TIFF;
the TIFF format is the most common standard for imaging and
archiving of scanned documents. If your application does not support
multipage documents, you can create a profile that generates single
page documents, or scan each page as a separate job.
• The AXIS 7100 is compatible with the majority of today’s popular
tools. However, if you find a tool that is not supported by the AXIS
7100, we would like to know about it. For information on how to contact us see “Preface” on page 3.
• For further information, including recommendations for specific tools
and sample images created by the AXIS 7100, see the Axis web site at

specific file format in Windows:
1. In Windows Explorer, click the View menu, click Options,
and then click the File Types tab.
2. To create a new file type, click New Type. To modify the
settings for an existing file type, select the type, and then click
Edit.
3. Specify a description for the file type and the file name
extension associated with this type of file.
4. Click New to define an action for this file type.
5. In the Action field, type Open. In the Application used to
perform action field, specify the path to the application you
want to use for opening files that have this extension.

Meta Information
Meta Information
The Meta Information functionality allows the Developer,
System Integrator, Administrator etc. of the AXIS 7100 Network
Document Server to define a list of information to be requested
(it can be required or optional information) from the user at the
moment of scanning. The user will be prompted for this
information before the document is scanned and sent over the
network.
This section describes Meta Information from the perspective of
the Developer/System Integrator/Administrator and the user.
The Meta Information will be sent together with the scanned
image in the Information File or as a separate document to a
different destination. The Meta Information file format is
specified by the Developer/System Integrator/Administrator in
XML, HTML or almost any other text format. The Developer can
also choose to send information set by the AXIS 7100 itself, e.g.
a time stamp or user identification.
This Meta Information can then be used by different applications
such as accounting software, workflow systems, archiving
systems, document management systems, imaging systems,
knowledge management systems etc or for storing in a database
server.
RightFax Integration
Meta Information is used to prompt the user to enter the number
of the RightFax server. For more information on RightFax server
integration, please refer to “RightFax Integration with SMTP”

Notes:
• The Meta Information functionality requires that there is a keyboard
connected to the AXIS 7100. If the Meta Information functionality is
enabled and you do not have a keyboard connected you will receive
the Error Message “Meta Data Enabled. Keyboard required”.
• XML (eXtensible Markup Language) is used as the language that
defines the requested information.
Specifying the
Meta Information
(XML DD File)
The administrator defines the list of requested information that
the user is required to enter before scanning the document. The
user is prompted to enter the information by messages on the
AXIS 7100 Document Server control panel display.
The administrator specifies these messages by writing an XML
DD (Document Description) file in a text editor. This file is then
saved on an FTP server and the AXIS 7100 will be configured to
retrieve the XML DD file from the specified FTP server. See
“Retrieving the XML DD file” on page 133.
Note:
You can write the XML DD file in any text editor although it is
recommended that you download a Freeware XML writer with XML
validation. There a several XML writers available in the AXIS 7100
Developer section at http://www.axis.com
XML DD file
The XML DD (Document Description) file specifies what the user
will be prompted for, and the format and contents of the output
information file. The file is limited to a size of 50 000 bytes. The
AXIS MetaData DTD defines the syntax of the XML DD file. For
more information see “Meta Information DTD” on page 151.
The built in html-based XML parser can be used for validating
an XML DD file. This enables the administrator to verify that the
XML DD file used for Meta Information is correct before setting
up the whole environment.

LDAP
AXIS 7100 User’s Manual
Appendix B
LDAP
This section gives you an introduction to LDAP and how to use
it.
Introduction
LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) is used to
program directory-enabled applications. It is a directory service
that allows people to locate other users, resources, services and
information. LDAP allows resources and services to be selected
with ease and accessed with location-independence.
Note:
LDAP works differently depending on the organization and the structure
of the system.
Structure Example
A structure can look like this:
Example:
Organization
Country
Organization Unit
AXIS
SE
Engineering
US
Marketing
Sales
Usual Attribute Types
These are the most typical attribute types (the LDAP server
implementation should understand these attribute types):
AXIS 7100 User’s Manual
LDAP
Attribute Type
Matches
objectClass
Describes the kind of object which
the entry represents.
cn
Contains the name of an object. If
the object is a person, it is typically
the person’s full name.
sn
Contains the family name of a
person.
c
Contains a two-letter country code.
l
Contains the name of a locality,
such as a city, county or other
geographic region.
st
Contains the full name of a state or
province.
street
Contains the physical address of the
object to which the entry
corresponds, such as an address for
package delivery.
o
Contains the name of an
organization.
ou
Contains the name of an
organization unit.
title
This attribute contains the title,
such as “Vice President”, of a person
within an organization.
147
148
LDAP
AXIS 7100 User’s Manual
The attribute types are used to create search filters. There are six
types of basic search filters and the syntax of the filters is in the
<attribute><operator><value> format. Complex search filters
can easily be constructed by combining these basic search filters
and other complex filters using the Boolean operations AND, OR
and NOT. The six basic filter components are presented in the
table below:
Filter Type
Format
Example
Matches
Equality
(<attr>=<val
ue>)
(sn=Smith)
Surnames
exactly equal to
Smith.
Approximate
(<attr>~=<va
lue>)
(sn~=Smitt)
Surnames
approximately
equal to Smitt
(for example,
that sounds like
Smitt - note the
misspelling).
Substring
(<attr>=[<le
ading>]*[<an
y>]*[<traili
ng>])
(sn=*smith*)
Surnames
containing the
string “smith”.
(sn=smith*)
Surnames
starting with
“smith”.
(sn=*smith)
Surnames
ending with
“smith”.
(sn=s*mi*th)
Surnames
starting with “s”,
containing “mi”
and ending with
“th”.
(sn>=Smith)
Surnames
lexicographically
greater than or
equal to Smith.
Greater than
or equal
(<attr>>=<va
lue>)
AXIS 7100 User’s Manual
LDAP
Filter Type

Example
Matches
Less or
equal than
(<attr><=<va
lue>)
(sn<=Smith)
Surnames
lexicographically
less than or
equal to Smith.
Presence
(<attr>=*)
(sn=*)
All surnames.
Using the Boolean operators and a prefix notation, the basic
filters can be combined to form more complex ones. The ‘&’
character represents AND, the ‘|’ character represents OR and the
‘!’ character represents NOT. Here are some examples that
explain how to do that:
Filter Type
Format
Example
Matches
AND
(&(<filter1>
)(<filter2>)
...)
(&(sn=smith)
(objectclass
=person))
Entries with an
object class of
person and a
surname exactly
equal to Smith.
OR
(|(<filter1>
)(<filter2>)
...)
(|(sn=smith)
(cn=*smith))
Entries with a
surname exactly
equal to Smith
or a
commonname
ending in
“smith”.
NOT
(!(<filter>)
)
(!(mail=*))
Entries without
a mail attribute.
Note:
It is wise to create filters that sort out unwanted entries based on their
object class. For example, in an address book, you might only want to
retrieve entries of the “people” class, with the common name “John”,
leaving out computers called John. This could be achieved with the
following filter: (&(objectclass=person)(cn=john))
149
150
LDAP
AXIS 7100 User’s Manual
Note:
The way you construct your filter will has a large impact on how fast the
search is conducted. If you create a filter involving structures that the
directory server can not evaluate efficiently, performance is likely to
suffer. Apart from being familiar with the administrator and/or the inner
workings of the server itself, only trial and error can tell you whether
your filter is working efficiently or not.
Example searches
Here are some advanced search examples:
Searched
Filter to use

Meta Information DTD
Meta Information DTD
The DTD (Document Type Definition) is a specific definition of
the rules and syntax that the DD (Document Description) file
must follow. It contains the definition of the element hierarchy
and relation between these elements in the hierarchy. When
your XML document is processed, it is compared to its
associated DTD to be sure that it is structured correctly and that
all tags are correctly used.
You can download the DTD file from the internal web pages in
the Troubleshooting section at admin | support.

Administrator to define custom information that will
be required from the User at the moment of scanning.
This custom information can either be related to a
particular destination (for instance an Invoice
number when an invoice destination is selected) or
it can be requested regardless of the
destination.================================== -->

is to be requested from the User on selecting a
specific destination (gathered in the "When"
element). This section also allows the Administrator
to define the specific format of the output for this
set of MetaData. For instance, the Administrator can
ask for an invoice number when the User selects the
invoice destination. He can also define a particular
output format that can easily be processed (by a
database for instance).======================== -->

(="hidden"). MetaData with the "Required" attribute
defined as "yes", is mandatory and must be entered
before the User can proceed with the scanning.
MetaData with the "Required" attribute defined as
"hidden", is useful when the administrator wants to
define a default value that will help in processing
the information entered by the User.

Updating the Software
Updating the Software
The system software for your AXIS 7100 is stored in a resident
flash memory chip that, like ordinary ROM memory, keeps its
contents even when the power is turned off. Flash memory is
unique because its contents can be erased and re-written.
This means that new system software can be easily loaded into
your AXIS 7100 over the network using FTP as soon as it becomes
available. Instructions on how to update the system software are
provided within this section.
Obtaining the Updated System Software
Your Dealer
Axis Web Site
Updating the
System Software
Contact your dealer to check if there have been any recent
updates of the software. You should have your present version
numbers ready to compare against the latest software updates
from Axis.
Check the Axis web site at http://www.axis.com where you can
download the latest versions of the software.
Before you begin:
To upgrade over the network you will need the following:
• The file with the new AXIS 7100 software, where the name file name
is in the form product-version.bin, i.e. 7100_1_00.bin for software
release 1.00.
• A computer on the network with TCP/IP and FTP.
• It is recommended that you make a backup copy of your current
config.ini file before updating.
169
170
Updating the Software
AXIS 7100 User’s Manual
Follow these steps to upgrade the AXIS 7100 software:
1. Log in to the AXIS 7100 with the command ftp <Internet
address> where <Internet address> is the name or Internet
address assigned to the AXIS 7100.
2. You will be prompted for user id and password. Use the user
id root which has the default password pass.
3. Issue the command bin to change to binary transfer mode.
4. Issue the command put <software name> FLASH where
<software name> is the name of the new software, e.g.
7100_1_00.bin.
5. During the flash load, the AXIS 7100 LCD will display the
message “Updating server” and a progress bar. Wait for the
flash load to finish. This normally takes 1 to 4 minutes. The
unit will then automatically restart with the new AXIS 7100
software.
6. Log out using the command quit, bye or exit depending on
your FTP version.
Caution
Be careful not to interrupt the upgrade process. If the upgrade is interrupted, try again. If this fails,
the AXIS 7100 may have to be re-initialized by your dealer.
Note:
If you are using a window-based FTP client application such as Ws_ftp or
Fetch, you must rename the new file <software file> to FLASH
before downloading.
