1 Overview
The BookScan Station is a full featured copier replacement kiosk with several major advantages over
traditional copier systems:







Large user-friendly touch-screen display designed for heavy use
Smart paper detection. Place scanned books and documents anywhere on the glass.
Protects spines on scanned books
No consumables – no paper, no toner
Lower power consumption – no fuser
Minimized moving parts – no printing means no paper jams disabling the machine
Easily configured to use network resources
The BookScan Station consists of 2 major hardware components – the large format book-edge scanner,
and the Host PC. Additionally, there are several options with Automatic Document Feeders that can be
attached to the system.
The FB6080E and FB6280E scanners have an 11” x 17” platen or glass, and has a patented design that
brings the glass all the way to the edge and a gentle slope, allowing a user to place a book on this corner
and scan much further into the margin than a traditional copier or scanner would allow, while removing
the normal damage and stress to the book spine typically seen when placing a book in the middle of a
flatbed. The scanner also will automatically locate the user’s document – the scanner does not require
placement in any specific location of the bed.
The Host PC runs the BookScan Station kiosk software, controlled by the users from the touch screen.
This software provides a simple user interface that is simple and to the point. It manages the entire
scanning process, file conversion, and file transference, whether to USB or across the network. The Host
PC is based on hardware used in restaurants for touch-screen Point Of Sale computers where the
environment is typically too hostile for a traditional PC. The system uses Windows Embedded to provide
the best compatibility with the smallest footprint.
The BookScan Station (BSS) kiosk software provides an entirely enclosed environment for the end-user,
which prevents end-users from leaving the BSS in an unrecognizable state that might prevent another
user from having difficulty using the system.
The BSS software configuration is housed in a set of .ini files stored in C:\Documents and Settings\All
Users\Application Data\BookScanStation. These use the traditional style of having bracketed sections.
Comments and disabled lines start with a ; character. Each INI file controls the specific feature it is
named after, with Configuration.ini having the core settings.

Depending on configuration, certain screens may be skipped, for example free or coin-op systems will
not prompt for a card.

Unpack, unlock, and connect the flatbed scanner. See section 3 for scanner setup details.
Unpack and connect any Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) accessories
Connect the USB extension from the accessory box to the touch-screen system. If necessary for
the location, use the included cable ties to secure the cable in the covered section under the
touch-screen.
Connect a USB keyboard to the touch-screen system
Power on the touch-screen system
When the system is completely powered up, and the “Touch Screen to begin” screen is
displayed, power on the flatbed. You should see the Windows “Found New Hardware” prompt.
Select the option to automatically detect the drivers, and to continue.
After driver detection of the flatbed is complete, power on any additional scanner components.
With the USB keyboard connected, press Alt-F4 to close the BookScan Station software
Go to the Start Menu, Programs, BookScan Station, INI, Configuration.ini
Make sure that ScannerOne= is set to the model of scanner that is connected to the touch
screen. If a BulletScan ADF scanner is connected in addition to the flatbed, set
MultipleScannerSelection=true and set ScannerTwo= to the model of BulletScan.
Near the bottom is the [JobButton] section. Enable or disable the different job types as
preferred for your usage.
If you will be using Print as one of the Job types, install your print driver(s) now. For configuring
multiple printers see section 10.1.4 for details.
If you will be using Email as one of the job types, see section 4.3.3 for getting started, and
section 10.1.6 for in depth configuration.
For all other BookScan Station configurations, see section 10.1
2.1 Configuring the security on the BookScan Station
Windows security checklist:
1. If the BookScan Station needs to be joined to the domain, do that at this time.
a. The default local administrator account has a blank password. To conform to most
security systems, the local administrator account should be given a password.
b. If the local administrator account has a password set, download TweakUI from
Microsoft.com and configure Windows to automatically login with that account and
password.
2. If your security policy requires accounts that automatically login to be restricted user accounts,
please see the additional security notes in chapter 6.
2-1
Aug 2011
3. Important! The BookScan Station does not come with anti-virus software installed, and the
Windows updates are disabled. Install the security software and configure the Windows
updates to match your local security policy.
a. For performance reasons it is recommended that anti-virus software be configured to
ignore the c:\Temp folder. In some cases it may be desirable to also ignore connected
flash drives.
4. Reboot the computer and enter the BIOS setup. Set the administrator password to a password
that conforms to your local security policy.
5. The BookScan Station software has an admin PIN allowing you to close the software from the
touchscreen. This is set in the Configuration.ini. The default is 4321. Configure it to match your
local security policy.
6. If a keyboard will be permanently connected, or if the BSS is in a location that is high risk for
malicious users, use the configuration directions in section 8.3 to prevent users from bypassing
the BSS software.
7. If desired, Deepfreeze may be loaded.

4.3 Standard features
When making any configuration changes to the BSS software, it requires the software to be closed and
restarted.
The BookScan Station default state is to have the following Job types available to users:



USB
Printer (system default printer)
Email
The BookScan Station supports several other Job types:






SMB network shared folders
FTP
SFTP (SSH FTP)
FTPS (FTP with SSL)
CDRW (BSS1700 internal or external for all others)
Google Docs
All of the BookScan Station software features are controlled within a set of .ini files contained in the
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\BookScanStation folder. There are shortcuts to
each of these files in the Start Menu -> BookScan Station -> INI.
Configuration.ini allows you to enable different job types, control the idle timeout, add the prompt to
continue scanning with the same settings, and several other global features.
If you are unfamiliar with editing .ini files, please contact your reseller for additional support.
All job types will allow you to pick and choose the available file formats, scan mode, and resolution that
the end user will see. This is configured in the appropriate INI file for the job.
4.3.1 Initial Setup – USB
Scan-to-USB works without additional configuration. Enabling file and folder browsing may be done
within the USB.ini file.
4-3
Aug 2011
4.3.2 Initial Setup – Printer
Setting up the Scan-to-Printer job type for the first time requires installing the appropriate print drivers
on the touch-screen system. You may either have the system configured for a single printer or configure
the printer to use different printers for different scan modes (Color, Grayscale, Black & White).
Details on the specifics of this are in section 10.1.4.
4.3.3 Initial Setup – Email
There are 3 parts to configure for Scan-to-Email. Account Creation, SMTP Settings, and Interface
Preferences.
Gmail is a very popular 3rd party mail service that provides SMTP services, and the Sendmail.ini is already
configured to use Gmail.
4.3.3.1 Account creation
The BSS software must have a mail account created on SMTP server. If you are using a Gmail account,
create the account, then you must first perform a “Human” test or CAPTCHA. Open Internet Explorer,
go to Google.com and search for “Unlock Captcha”. The first result should be to a Google link to Unlock
Captcha – go there and follow the directions. Then set the login and password in the sendmail.ini.
4.3.3.2 SMTP settings
The SMTP settings for the BSS are in the Sendmail.ini. If you are unsure of the settings to use, check
with your network administrator if there are any setup sheets for using alternate mail clients, such as
Thunderbird. This is preconfigured for using Gmail.
For using an internal mail server, please reference your own documentation for configuring an SMTP
connection, typically this will be whatever is used for Outlook Express or Thunderbird. Sections
referencing POP3 servers or the inbound mail server are not necessary.
4.3.3.3 Attachment Restrictions and interface preferences
You may set the maximum size of the attachments in Sendmail.ini. Set the below values as appropriate.
The limitmessage is what’s shown to the user on the screen.
limitSize(KB)=5000
limitmessage=Email maximum size is 5MB
To change all of the .COM buttons to .EDU buttons on the screen, open Configuration.ini and in the
[KeyboardButton] section set COMOrEDU=EDU
See section 7.1 for more information regarding 3rd party services.
4.3.4 Initial Setup – Enabling or Disabling jobs
The Job buttons that are displayed may be changed through the Configuration.ini file. Go to the
[JobButton] section and add or remove the job entries as listed. When removing a job button, make
sure that there are no blank job buttons in between valid job types.
For notes on how to configure the different job types, refer to section 10.1.

5 Logging Functions
The BookScan Station Kiosk software has several levels of logging available.
5.1 Basic Logs
By default, the BSS generates a log file that tracks the usage of the BookScan Station by what type of
scans are being performed. These are logged in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application
Data\BookScanStation\Count.ini
Additionally, as seen in section 11.8, the Scanner Properties screen can output a text file includes
hardware history and counts, and other system hardware information.
5.2 Detailed logs
All scan activity is logged in “C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\BookScanStation
\current log”. There are 3 files:



BSSApplication.log
ScanUsage.log
System.log
BSSApplication.log logs the start and stop times of the application. This may be useful for is identifying if
someone has been attempting to breach security and restarting the system multiple times.
ScanUsage.log has date, time, job type, scan mode, file type, format, resolution, and page count for
every scan batch that is completed.
System.log is for internal use.
5.3 Automatic Monthly Reports
The automatic monthly reporting feature relies on the configuration in sendmail.ini to send out the logs.
This must be configured, even if Scan-to-Email is not used. Once a log is sent out, the current log files
are moved to the c:\BSSlogFolder
To enable this, open log.ini. In the [Setting] section set
EmailLogEnable=true
And fill in
EmailLogToAddress=
With the email addresses that will be receiving the log. This supports up to 99 characters, and additional
addresses should be comma separated. You may need to create a junk mail filter for the mail account
assigned to the BSS.
There are several other options which may be configured if desired, listed below:
[Setting]
5-1
Aug 2011
CreateNewLogMonth(s)=
This value allows you to set which months, by number, you will receive the log. In this fashion you can
manually configure monthly, quarterly, or any other variation that you desire.
CreateNewLogDay=
This is the day that the log file is generated and sent out.
SaveLogTo=C:\BSSlogFolder
This should be left as default unless otherwise directed.
[LogFormat]
This section controls what information is saved in the logfile
DateTime=true
Destination=true
Pin=false
BitDepth=true
FileFormat=true
DPI=true
PagesScanned=true
[Record]
LastCreateLogDate=
Do not adjust this setting, it is an internal counter.
5.3.1 Using the Log Files
After receiving the monthly log, the easiest way to manage this log file and turn it into a usable report is
by using a tool in Excel called a Pivot Report. Use of this tool varies depending on the version of Excel,
however the end result is the same – it provides a matrix that you can use to compare the volume of
scan jobs performed, by which type of job and type of scan.

6 Notable folders and User permissions
The BookScan Station software and Scanner driver uses the following folders and their subfolders:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\BookScanStation\
C:\Program Files\iVina\BookScanStation\
C:\Temp
C:\FB6080E
C:\FB6280E
C:\FB2080E
C:\S400
C:\S2200
Each different model scanner will have its own folder, and not all of these folders will be present.
To operate properly, the BookScan Station must be logged in with a user that has at least Modify or
Read & Execute + Write permissions, as set on the Security Tab in the file properties.
Normally users in the Power Users group will have the required access for Program Files, but not for
other folders in the root of the C drive.
All new systems will have the permissions set for the above folders automatically to grant all users the
required permissions. If this gets reset for some reason, right-click on each folder, select the “Security”
tab and add the permissions as necessary.

7 FAQ for 3rd party issues
There are several 3rd party applications and services that are not integrated that still commonly have
some interaction with the BookScan Station
Known external vendors:
Google – Gmail
Faronics – Deep Freeze
Multiple Vendors – Antivirus/Firewall/Security
Microsoft – Windows Embedded
iVina has no special relationship with the above vendors. iVina is not responsible for any changes in the
level of service that any unaffiliated vendor provides.
7.1 Google - Gmail
Known Issues – Gmail requires a special sort of authentication when it is used as an outbound relay in
this fashion. If a site is configured to use Gmail, the Gmail server may return "Error 5.5.1 Authentication Required". To resolve this, do the "human test" captcha at
https://www.google.com/accounts/DisplayUnlockCaptcha
It is unknown if there is a certain amount of time that the Captcha test will unlock a site for.
7.2 Faronics – Deep Freeze
Known Issues – None besides the existing permission issues. It is recommended that the C:\Temp folder
is not frozen, and if any of the logging functionality in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application
Data\BookScanStation\Count.ini and the other log folders are needed, then that also needs to not be
locked by Deep Freeze.
7.3 Multiple Vendors – Antivirus and Security
Known issues – There are 3 known issues at this point relating to antivirus products.
1. Performance: The c:\temp folder should be unmonitored for best performance. Additionally,
for routine virus scans in the middle of the night, it may be advisable to automatically close the
BSS software for better performance, assuming the system is rebooted or the software is
restarted when completed.
2. False positive for email spam protection - The BSS Software does include a non-Microsoft email
application, and as such may trigger a false positive from some firewall applications. Be aware
that the email feature will send on the ports selected in the Sendmail.ini. McAfee has been
observed in the field blocking email.
3. Expired software licenses. Expired software licenses may cause additional nag screens to pop
up, breaking the user out of the BSS software. It is iVina’s policy that the customers are
responsible for the antivirus software as specified by their enterprise security policy. iVina does
7-1

not recommend using antivirus software that requires manual intervention on a per-system
basis.

7.5 Microsoft – Windows Embedded
The BookScan Station 1700 systems run on either Windows XP Embedded for Point of Service (WEPOS)
or POSReady 2009. Unlike Windows XP, these versions of Windows still have mainstream support. See
the links below:
http://support.microsoft.com/lifecycle/?p1=8931
http://support.microsoft.com/lifecycle/?p1=14086
WEPOS and POSReady 2009 are componentized versions of Windows XP and in some cases will not have
certain DLLs and Windows files you may expect from a normal system. When adding the BSS to a
Windows Domain, certain group policies may fail to load. In any environment that relies heavily on
GPOs, it is advised that all BSS systems be put into a container so you have more control over which
policies are applied.
The BSS2050, BSS3050, and BSS3070 run on Windows XP Professional for Embedded Systems, which is
also an extended service cycle product.
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsembedded/en-us/evaluate/windows-embedded-enterprise-keyfeatures.aspx#xp
7.6 Pharos

8 BookScan Station General Security
8.1 BIOS Security
The BIOS is not set with a default password. This is to be set by the customer’s location.
8.2 System Restore Tool
When the system boots, there is a 3 second window that you may use the keyboard to select the option
to restore the system to factory default.
8.2.1 BSS1700
After selecting the option, you will see a red box with 2 options. To restore to factory defaults, press K.
You will then be prompted for a password to complete the restoration. The password is “infoacer”
without the quotes. After the restoration is complete, you will need to use the Depot Update tool to
update the system to the current release. Contact support for the latest release of the Depot Update.
8.2.2 BSS2050, BSS3050 and BSS3070
After selecting the option, you will be prompted for the password. The password is “ivinabss” without
the quotes. After the system restore is complete, your system will reboot once, update several pieces of
software, update the network name of the BookScan Station, reboot, prompt you to calibrate, and
update the software to the last version that was loaded via the Depot Update.
8.3 Securing an external keyboard
In the event that a keyboard is connected, it is recommended to secure the BSS by removing the ability
to ‘escape’ into windows.
The following blocks may be copied into notepad and saved as .reg files.
By importing the following into the registry, you may lock down the system completely so that not even
Safe Mode will allow you to bypass the BSS interface.
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout]
"Scancode
Map"=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,07,00,00,00,00,00,38,E0,00,00,38,00,00,00,01,00,00,00,01,E0,00,00,5B,E0,00,00,5C,E0,00,00,00,00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
"Shell"="C:\\Program Files\\iVina\\BookScanStation\\BookScanStation.exe"
The Keyboard layout section will disable the alt, Windows and escape keys. The Winlogon section will
prevent the standard Windows Explorer from even starting up.
If Windows authentication (ctrl-alt-delete) is required, use the following:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout]
"Scancode
Map"=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,07,00,00,00,00,00,3e,e0,00,00,3e,00,00,00,01,00,00,00,01,e0,00,00,5b,e0,00,00,5c,e0,00,00,00,00
And disable the Task Manager by group policy. The above entry will disable F4, Escape, and Windows –
allowing the user to perform a ctrl-alt-delete, without otherwise disabling the system.

Aug 2011
8.4 Domain considerations
The BookScan Station host PC may be joined to a domain, but there are several factors that must be
considered:
8.4.1 Group policies
Not all group policies will be appropriate, especially security patches for specific Windows components.
In many cases, these will fail because the vulnerable component simply doesn’t exist in the Embedded
environment.
8.4.2 User rights
See Section 6 regarding the folders the user must have access to.
8.4.3 Standard user restrictions
It is recommended to disable Autorun (CD and USB) and Task manager for your non-administrator users.
8.4.4 Mapped Printers
The printers listed in the Printers.ini file are hardcoded to the name of the printer. If you wish to
support job routing based on scan type in an environment where printers are assigned on a per user
basis, you must either make sure the printer names match perfectly, or create a script to update the
Printers.ini file when a user logs in.
8.5 Physical Security
To physically secure the BookScan Station and scanner from theft, it is recommended to acquire one of
the PC lockdown type cables that come with mounts that can be secured directly to the scanner.

Aug 2011
9 BookScan Station Depot Update Script
The BookScan Station Depot Update Script performs a number of operations to improve the security
and stability of the BSS system from its original factory state.
It is designed to aid in deployment, both from the original factory and large scale installations and
customizations. In addition to updating the software on the system, it provides a quick update tool in
the event that the system must be reset to factory defaults. On the BSS2050, BSS3050, and BSS3070 it
will automatically run when the factory restore has been completed.

10 BookScan Station Advanced Configuration Notes
To configure the BookScan Station, connect a USB Keyboard (not provided) to the Host PC.
Important! When connecting devices to the back of the BSS1700, make sure there is nothing connected
to the front USB ports. It is very easy to accidentally damage the connector of a USB device connected
to the front when tilting the Host PC forward.
The first time a new keyboard is used on the BookScan Station it will take about 30 seconds for Windows
to be ready to use the keyboard. When it is ready, press Alt-F4 to close the BSS kiosk software. The
touch screen may be used as a standard pointing device for navigation. The quiet beep when tapping
the screen (clicking) may not be disabled. There is a louder beep for certain dialogs that are not
appropriate for certain environments, mute the system volume to resolve this.
10.1 Configuring the BSS Software:
10.1.1 General Settings
10.1.1.1 Default selected job
To change the default selected job, such as when you remove the USB option, go to the [Default] section
of interface.ini (near the end) and set the Job= to the value assigned to the destination’s button.
Destinations are listed in the section for your convenience.
10.1.1.2 Idle reset
To configure the idle reset timeout, open Configuration.ini and change the Timeout= value in the
[TimeOut] section.
10.1.1.3 Scan More Using the Same Settings
The option to Scan More is enabled by default. To disable it, edit Configuration.ini and set
ShowCompleteSelection=false
10.1.2 Billing Modes
The BSS supports several billing types, but only one at a time. There are different billing categories: free,
coin and bill, prepaid card, or remote account.
To change the billing type, open Configuration.ini and set Version= to the desired billing type. After
that, for each job button set the Version to either =free or the billing type that you’re using. This allows
for a selective enabling of the billing on a per-job basis. Only one billing Version is supported at a time.
Billing prices are set in the Price.ini file, are configured in whole cents, and can be adjusted based on the
Destination or Job type.
The iVina brand “standard” billing has been deprecated.

USB.ini also controls the following:
BrowseToFolder=false
Set to true to enable folder browsing on the USB drive
ShowFiles=false
Set to true to show files in addition to folders
10.1.4 Printing
The BookScan Station supports 2 modes of printer support.
 Single Printer - Default
 Multiple Printers
To configure printing, first install all your printer drivers. If you are only using 1 printer, you are done.
To enable print job separation by scan type, go to Print.ini. Set
EnableMultiplePrinter=true
Once this is set, then the three values below need to be set
ColorPrinterName=
GrayscalePrintName=
BlackWhitePrintName=
The exact name of the printer as it is displayed in the Printers and Faxes control panel must be used.
When scanning to a printer shared on the network, the servername is case sensitive. If prints do not
show up in the print queue, but you are able to print test pages, confirm the name of the printer. You
can do this by opening a command prompt and typing the following:
Wmic printer list brief
The new Print setup also supports Duplexing and Multiple paper size selections based on the reported
paper size in the paper tray.
In Print.ini duplexing is controlled by the settings:
DuplexOrientation=h
[Duplex]
OneSide=true
TwoSide=default
10-4
Aug 2011
The DuplexOrientation= controls which way the back page is flipped.
To disable duplex functionality, set TwoSide=False.
To configure the different paper sizes, first confirm in the printer driver what the print resolution is.
Typically with modern printers the default is 600 DPI.
PrinterResolution=600
Set the PrinterResolution as appropriate.
[PaperSize]
Letter=default
LetterXRes=5100
LetterYRes=6600
Legal=true
LegalXRes=5100
LegalYRes=8400
A3=true
A3XRes=7200
A3YRes=12000
To disable the different paper sizes, set them to false. Certain printer models scale the print resolution
of Tabloid or A3 documents differently than letter. When configuring the system for the first time, test
the different resolutions and use Calc to calculate the appropriate X and Y values.
10.1.5 Authentication Screen Keyboard options
To disable the beep when pressing buttons, it is recommended to mute the system using the Windows
sound control panel.
10.1.6 Email
There are 3 configurable items for email. See the below sections:

Open the sendmail.ini file and go to the [email] section.
limitSize(KB)=5000
limitmessage=Email maximum size is 5MB
Change these values to match your policy for maximum attachment size. Limitmessage is the actual
message that is displayed on the screen for end users. The limit size in this case is rounded down to
5000 KB instead of 5120 KB to provide overhead.
10.1.6.2 Changing .com to .edu
Open Configuration.ini and go to the [KeyboardButton] section and set:

COMOrEdu=EDU
10.1.6.3 Main Mail Settings
To configure the rest of the email settings, open SendMail.ini. The default settings are set to an example
account using Gmail as an external mail server. iVina has no relationship with Gmail and is not
responsible for any level of service they may provide, or issues relating to Gmail security. Please see the
notes at the end of this section for additional known issues when using a 3rd party email provider like
Gmail.
If you are unsure as to what settings to use, it is recommended that you find the settings for your mail
server that Outlook Express would use.
in the [email] section you can configure the following values:
smtp=
This should be set to your outgoing smtp server
port=
This is the port that is used. Standard smtp servers use 25.
login=
This is the username for the account. Some mail servers may require the full email address.
password=
This is the plaintext password for the account
sendername=
This is the displayname on the outbound email
sendermail=
This is the return address on the outbound email
ssl=
If SSL support is required and supported by the server, set to true, if not, false. For Gmail, set true.
ssltype=Explicit
Set this to match the type of SSL support that the server supports.
authentication=
If your email server requires authentication, set to true, if not, false. For Gmail, set true.
defaultaddress=
This pre-populates the "To" field with this value. If this location does not have any common email
domains, clear this value
10-6
Aug 2011
defaultcc=
This allows pre-population of the CC field.
defaultsubject=
This is the default subject text for the email that the scan is attached to.
limitSize(KB)=
This is the size limit for outgoing emails in KiloBytes
OverSizeMessage=
This is the notification that the user sees when the attachment is over the limitSize(KB)
messagebody1=
messagebody2=
messagebody3=
messagebody4=
The messagebody lines allow you to create a default message
10.1.7 Scan to Google Docs
The BookScan Station supports an optional upgrade that allows scanning to the Google Docs service.
Every Gmail account hosted by Google has access to at least 1GB of storage on the Google Docs service,
including mail accounts @ different domains, but hosted by Google.
When enabled, the user will be prompted for their credentials before scanning, then when scanning is
done, they will be able to select a folder (if any are created in their account) to store the file in. The
user’s credentials are immediately cleared when either the scan job is completed, the user hits the back
button to before the login page, or the system idles out and returns to the start page.
10.1.7.1 Adding Google Docs as a Job Option
To add Google Docs as a Job option, make sure you have a valid license for Google Docs, then go to
Configuration.ini and add it to the JobButton list.
10.1.8 Network
The BookScan Station supports scanning to Windows file shares (SMB compatible). To use this, you
must configure the server settings and open Configuration.ini and add it to the JobButton list.
10.1.8.1 Mapped Drive Letters
The BSS does not support scanning to a mapped drive letter.
10-7
Aug 2011
10.1.8.2 Main Network configuration options
The settings for the server name, folder path, credentials, and browsing option are controlled in
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\BookScanStation\SMB.ini. They are listed below
DefaultFileName=BookScanStation-%y-%m-%d-%H-%M-%S
To the desired default filename. %y, %m, and %d will automatically populate the Year, Month,
and Day respectively. %H %M and %S are Hour, Minute, and Second.
RequireActiveAuthentication=false
Enable Active Authentication to prompt for username and password
BrowseToFolder=false
Enable browse to folder to allow the user to browse to a specific location on the file server
UserName=username
Password=password
If ActiveAuthentication=false, this is the username and password that will be used. If the user
account is on a different server/domain than the username should be in the
username@servername or servername\username format.
ComputerName=\\Servername
ComputerName is the name of the target server
Path=\SharedFolder
Path should be set to the top level of the share that will be used. The Path now supports using
%username% as a token that is populated by the authenticated username.
10.1.9 FTP/sFTP/FTPs
To use these as destinations, and open Configuration.ini and add FTP to the JobButton list.
Select the type of FTP (FTP, sFTP, FTPs) to be used in FTP.ini.
10.1.10
CDRW (With optional CDRW upgrade)
The BSS1700 supports CDRW. The CDRW upgrade requires additional hardware, if you are not sure if
you have the upgrade, look at the front of the CD drive. If there is no CDRW logo on the front panel of
the CD drive, then you do not have the upgrade and can’t use this feature. As long as there are no
proprietary modifications to the blank disc format, the user should be able to continue to burn as many
batches as will fit on the disc.
The BSS2050, BSS3050, and BSS3070 support CDRW as well, but require an external CDRW drive. This is
not preferred in most environments due to physical security concerns.
Enabling this in configuration.ini in the JobButton list like all other jobs.
10.1.11
LDAP authentication
The BookScan Station supports using LDAP as a means to determine if a user has a valid login and may
use the BookScan Station. This is the method used to have the BSS to talk to Active Directory or a
Windows Domain and validate users.
10-8
Aug 2011
This is the most complicated feature to configure, it is recommended that you contact BookScan Station
support for direct assistance with this
You can use this to either authenticate users for all job types, or just scan to print.
To enable this, edit LDAP.ini and set the following:
[Settings]
RequireActiveAuthentication=true
LdapForAllFeature=true
Set LdapForAllFeature=false to only prompt users for credentials when emailing.
Then, set the values below
[LDAP]
Domain=
Host=
BaseDN=
Attribute=
Set the Domain= to match the domain that the users belong to. In most cases you may set the Host to
the IP address or the FQDN of a domain controller.
The Base DN that is used here is the container that the Users exist in. There are several ways to
determine the Base DN.
 Use “dsquery user –name <username>” from the domain controller to see which containers the
user is in. The username is listed first, then the remainder is typically the Base DN that will be
used.
 In some cases all you need to do is find the Users container in the list of Well Known Containers.
This can be determined by copying dsquery to another computer or by using a 3rd party LDAP
searching tool.
 This tool http://www.novell.com/communities/node/1124/ldap-search can be used to query
your LDAP server. The username may need to use the domain name as well in the
domain\username format. If you’ve set this to query your domain controller, in the list of the
results you may find the user group in the list of Well Known Containers.
The Attribute= is the object type of the user account that is being authenticated. It is commonly either
DN, CN, or UID.
Account and Password are reserved functions and do not need to be configured.

11 BookScan Station scanner configuration
The BookScan Station scanner driver has several independent controls outside of the BookScan Station
Kiosk software.
Each scanner model is configured the same way and has all of the following screens that may be
configured.
To configure the advanced settings for the iVina FB6080E, FB2080E, FB6280E, BulletScan S400 or
BulletScan S2200, do the following:
For the BSS2050, BSS3050, and BSS3070, go to the Start Menu, and open Capture tool. Then select the
scanner model that you will configure, TWAIN, and hit OK.
For the BSS1700, go to the Start Menu -> All Programs look for the model number of the scanner, either
listed as one of the following:




Avision FB6080E Scanner
Avision FB6280E Scanner
Avision FB2080E Scanner
BulletScan
From there, select “Avision Capture Tool” or “Capture Tool”. If you see a message about Acrobat
Reader, click the checkbox and hit OK.
Select the scanner model that you will configure, TWAIN, and hit OK.
11-1
Aug 2011
In the top left corner, there will be a Setup button. Click the setup button to bring up the Twain User
Interface, also known as the Scanner Properties.
From the Scanner Properties screen, many different functions can be controlled. To test a particular
configuration, hit OK on the Properties, and hit the Scan button.

11.1 Scanner Properties->Image
From the Image tab, the following things may be adjusted:






Binarization
Resolution
Invert
Scan Source
Profiles
Color Depth – Color, Gray, B&W
Important Note: The duplex scanners allow you to select and manage the settings for the Rear or back
side of the scanned documents separately from the front. When making changes, make sure to select
both Front and Rear and confirm they’re both configured correctly.
Binarization is how the output Black and White image is produced. There are two options:
1. Dynamic Threshold (Default)
a. Dynamic Thresholding attempts to automatically set the brightness levels to determine
what pixels are black and what are white.
2. Fixed Processing
a. Fixed Processing uses a fixed brightness level.
Dynamic Thresholding is best if there is mixed content and for everyday usage. Fixed Processing may be
desired in the event that Dynamic Thresholding does not emphasize the desired content.
11-3
Aug 2011
Resolution is the amount of information in each square inch. This is controlled by the user in the BSS
Application.
Invert allows you to invert the next scanned image from black to white, and white to black. Black on
White is the default.
Scan Source is where you can choose to use the Automatic Document Feeder if that option is present.
Flatbed(Book) has the scan area alternate locations for a manual book edge scanning. It is not needed
with the BookScan Station software. The option for Flatbed is the recommended choice.
Profiles allows you to save your current settings, or load settings you have saved.
Color Depth is the set of checkboxes on the left that allow you to choose whether you want to scan in
Black and White, Grayscale or Color.
Color Adjustment will automatically enhance the colors
11-4

11.2 Scanner Properties->Compression
These compression settings are internal to the twain driver. It allows you to enable JPG compression for
Color and Grayscale scanning, and G4 compression for Black and White scanning.
11-5
Aug 2011
11.3 Scanner Properties->Color Dropout
Color dropout is a special mode used for Grayscale and Black and White processing that removes
content from the original image if it is one of the selected colors. Currently we support Red, Blue, and
Green.
This is typically used for forms that are printed in a certain color so that only the desired information is
saved in the scan – typical of tax forms and surveys.
11-6
Aug 2011
11.4 Scanner Properties->Paper
This screen controls the scan selection area and multifeed settings (only applicable to models that have
an Automatic Document Feeder).
Deskew provides the option to Auto Straighten based on the contents, typically the text alignment
Cropping has several choices
1. Automatic
a. Automatic will start scanning at the beginning, and stop when it sees the solid black
background from front to back
2. Fixed to Transport
a. Fixed to Transport means in a fixed position, either on the glass, or through a feeder.
3. Relative to Document
a. Relative to Document is used to remove a certain amount from the edges of the
document – useful for removing 3 hole punches or rough edges on a document
Page Size has all of the standard page sizes, American and Metric
Overscan is only available with a feeder and indicates an additional amount of space captured around
the edges of the document
Multi-Feed Detection is only available with a feeder and will automatically detect a misfeed that is
generated by a document being dragged behind another document.
11-7
Aug 2011
11.5 Scanner Properties->Preview
The Preview screen allows you to see a low resolution preview of the current scan settings. This should
be used for testing document placement. Additionally, by selecting “Front Color”, “Front Gray”, or
“Front B&W” you can see how an image would come out if scanned in each of those modes.
11-8
Aug 2011
11.6 Scanner Properties->Options
Flip Side Rotation is only available with a feeder
Rotation Degrees normally does not need to be configured – the BSS Software will automatically rotate
any text document. The option to Automatically Rotate should be selected.
Blank Page Removal Threshold is typically only used on a feeder, automatically discarding a blank
image. It is recommended to enable this for Duplex scanners.
Edge fill will fill in the edges with a margin of either Black or White to the specified distance
Mirror flips an image as though through a mirror
Background Setting chooses the color that is filled in when the image is straightened out.

12 Troubleshooting and FAQ
12.1 Known Issues
Logo Embedding is not currently supported
Scan to print may have some scaling issues if the selected printer does not have full bleed or edge-toedge functionality.
All 3 print sizes are enabled by default. It is advised to disable Legal and A3/Tabloid if the printer does
not support them.
12.2 Errors
12.2.1 Billing database unavailable
This means that the billing system configured in interface.ini in the [Version] section is either not
configured correctly or is not responding. Check physical connections and check spelling of value.
12.2.2 Error 129
This error comes from the scanner driver, meaning that the computer can’t find the scanner. Each of
the following actions may correct this:






Close the BookScan Station software and check for a Found New Hardware prompt. If it’s
present, allow the device driver to install, then restart the BSS software.
Reseat both ends of the USB cable
If the scanner status light is solid green, restart the PC and power cycle the scanner
Remove other USB devices
Connect the scanner to a different USB port
Remove the scanner driver from the Control Panel, Add or Remove Programs, power off the
scanner, reboot the BSS, and reinstall the scanner driver from d:\BSSUpdate. Power on scanner
when done
12.2.3 Error 176
This error comes up if the shipping lock is engaged. Please check the yellow shipping lock
(FB6080E/FB6280E) or the gray shipping lock on the bottom (FB2080E). Disconnect the power, then
toggle the shipping lock twice, then make sure it’s in the open lock position. Reconnect the power and
the problem should be resolved.
12.2.4 Watson Errors
This usually comes up if the BSS has crashed. Please take note of what was being done when the error
occurred and contact support.
12.2.5 Automatic cropping isn’t working
There are several possible types of cropping problems
12-1
Aug 2011
1. Dark pictures, photos, and book covers are cropped too aggressively. This can be resolved by
placing a plain white piece of paper over the scanned item, providing a white frame or outline
that the scanner can see.
2. Automatic cropping seems to fail and there are weird white splotches scanned. This is usually
from having the lid open with a fluorescent light above the scanner. Closing the lid when
scanning will resolve this.
3. The scanner only scans the left half of the scanner bed. This is caused by the autocropping not
being enabled. See section 10 for how to correct that.
12.2.6 Unexpected Behavior
12.2.6.1 Loud Beeping when pressing keys
Turn down the Windows system volume
12.2.6.2 Chinese Characters in install screens or progress bar
Only affects the BSS1700 with POSReady 2009. Go to the Control Panel, International, Advanced. Set
the language to English (United States). Hit Yes on both prompts. If the scan progress bar or other
software still has Chinese characters, reinstalling it at this point will correct it.
12.2.6.3 Automatic Rotation isn’t working
Check in the Scanner Settings listed in section 11.6 to make sure that Rotation is set to “Auto based on
contents”. Make sure the scanned text is of sufficient quality to be read quickly – for best OCR and
automatic rotation results, use 300 DPI. If there is text at multiple different angles, that may also cause
12.2.7 ADF Specific
12.2.7.1 The ADF Pulls 2 or 3 pages at once consistently
Check the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) Pad. If there are multi-feeds, it is probably worn down.
Clean it using some rubbing alcohol (90%) and a lint-free cloth.
12.2.7.2 There is a vertical line when scanning from the ADF
Clean the glass where the paper passes over it. Use rubbing alcohol (90%) and a lint-free cloth. For
most persistent ink or sticky materials, use a cotton swab. Scratches on the glass are not covered under
warranty and will require factory servicing to repair.
