(running on a Canon
ScanFront device)
eCopy ShareScan® Installation and Setup Guide | 7
The ShareScan Client is installed on a Canon® ScanFront™device. It displays the user interface
on the device’s control panel and handles user input. It passes all information, including the raw
scanned image file, to the Services Manager for processing.
The ShareScan Services Manager resides on a network computer running Windows 2003
Server, Windows 2008 Server, Windows XP Professional (Service Pack 3), or Microsoft Vista
(Business and Enterprise, Service Pack 1). ShareScan does not require any special server hardware.
The Services Manager handles requests from the client, returns user interface screens and preview
images to the client, and creates the master image file according to the selected options (file type,
searchable text, encryption, etc.). It also manages all connected devices; a single Services Manager
can support multiple clients.
Apache Tomcat, which provides the Web client, resides on the PC running the ShareScan
Services Manager. It handles communications between the ScanFront device and the Services
Manager. It also keeps track of the hosted ScanFront devices, manages scanner settings, and
initiates scanning on the ScanFront device.
The Connectors, which reside on the same computer as the Services Manager, provide
connectivity to back-end applications. For example, the eCopy Connector for Microsoft
Exchange enables users to scan documents and e-mail them using Microsoft Exchange. The
eCopy Connector for Fax via Lotus Notes enables users to scan documents and fax them using
Lotus Notes.
The Administration console is a Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in that enables
system administrators to configure and administer Services Managers, eCopy Connectors, eCopy
Services, and devices.

| Quick Start: Installing and setting up ShareScan
Installation tasks
Before installing the product, see page 165 for information about hardware, software, and
network requirements.
To install and configure ShareScan, you perform the following tasks:
■
Install the ShareScan software (Services Manager, Administration console, and the eCopy
Connectors supplied with the installation program) on a network computer.
■

Installing eCopy ShareScan
Use the ShareScan installation program to install the following components on a network
computer:
■
Client
■
Services Manager
■
Administration console
■
One or more eCopy Connectors supplied with the installation program.
Installing connectors is not the same as activating them. You can install all the connectors suitable
to your environment now and activate them when you need to use them. For example, if you are
in a Windows environment, you do not need to install the Lotus Notes Mail and Fax connectors.
(If you want to install a connector later, you must go through the installation process again.)
To install the software:
1
Insert the eCopy ShareScan CD (Disk 1) in the drive.
The Launch window opens.
2
Click Install ShareScan.
The InstallShield Wizard determines the locale on the computer where you are installing
ShareScan; the locale determines the language for the installation.
Note:
If you need to install ShareScan in a different language, browse to the ShareScan.exe file on
the CD and then double-click the file. The installation program will prompt you to select a
language for the installation.
The InstallShield Wizard displays a screen that identifies software that must be installed on
your system before you install ShareScan, including MSXML6.0-SP1, Microsoft Visual
Studio C++ Redistributables, Java 2 Standard Edition Runtime Environment 5.0 UPdate
14, and Apache TomCat 5.5.
3
Click Install to install the required software and then follow the prompts, accepting the
Apache Tomcat default settings.
When installation of the required software is complete, the Welcome window for the
ShareScan installation opens.
4
Click Next.
The Destination Folder window opens, where you can accept the default folder
(recommended) or select a different folder.
10
| Quick Start: Installing and setting up ShareScan
5
Click Next.
The Connector Selection window opens.
6
Select the connectors that you want to install. A red “X” next to a connector indicates that
it is not available for installation.
If you plan to install the Lotus Notes Mail and Fax via Lotus Notes Connectors, you must
first install the Lotus Notes client on the computer running the Services Manager. If you
attempt to install these connectors without first installing the Lotus Notes client, the Setup
program will display an error message indicating that it cannot register the connector.
Note:
7
If the Lotus Notes client installation program prompts you to choose between the Multi-User
Install option and the Single User Install option, make sure that you select the Single User
Install option.
Click Next.
The Ready to Install the Program window opens.
Click Install.
9 When the installation is complete, click Finish.
If you select an e-mail or fax connector and you want to use the product’s Internet Address Book
function to store manually entered addresses and fax numbers in a database, you must install
Microsoft SQL Server Express 2005 (SQL Express). You must install the version of SQL Express
provided on the ShareScan CD (see page 74).

Configuring and activating connector
profiles
After licensing a device, you configure one or more profiles for each connector that you want to
use and then activate the profiles on a device.
When you configure a connector profile, you associate it with a button that appears on the main
ShareScan Client screen. When a user presses a button, the connector uses the properties and
services specified in the connector profile associated with the button. For example, the following
screens illustrate the relationship between the Display properties for an Exchange connector
profile and the Scan and Mail button on the Client screen.
You can configure multiple profiles for each connector.
This section describes the basic process of configuring and activating a connector profile, using
the eCopy Connector for Microsoft Exchange as an example. It does not provide any information
about configuring a local address book, which is a more advanced function. For detailed
information about configuring a profile for this connector, see page 92.
Before configuring this profile, you should create a generic Microsoft Exchange account for
ShareScan to use. The profile uses the ShareScan User Account information to log on to the
Exchange server and retrieve the Global Address List.

Configuring Session Logon
When you enable Session Logon, users at a device only need to log on a single time to ShareScan;
their logon information is effective for the entire session. The users do not have to enter their
logon information each time they select a connector during the current session; the Services
Manager passes the session logon information to the connector.
Note:
If a user needs to access different servers, and the logon credentials are not the same on those servers,
the system will prompt the user to enter logon information, even when Session Logon is enabled.
If you enable Session Logon for the Quick Connect, LDAP/SMTP, or Fax via SMTP connectors,
eCopy recommends that you refer to the connector-specific configuration section for information
about selecting the authentication type. Quick Connect, which is an add-on connector, has its own
administration guide.

Licensing devices
Every device that you use with eCopy software requires a valid license. To obtain a license, you
add a unique product key, valid for use with a single eCopy-enabled device, to the local license
database (see page 46). Site licenses, valid for activation with a predefined number of devices, are
also available (see page 46). eCopy recommends that you leave the license database on the local
hard drive. You activate the product key by obtaining a license code from the eCopy activation
Web site (see page 49).
To license a device running ShareScan Embedded software, you must add the device to the
Services Manager after entering the product key (see page 48).
A product key must be added to the license database before the Services Manager can assign it to
a device. Once the key is assigned to a device, it is no longer available for use with other devices.
Note:
If you assign a device to another Services Manager, the license moves with the device.
In the Administration console, the License Information tab displays the status of each product
key in the license database (see Table 6).
TABLE 6. Product key status options

Description
Activated
The key has been assigned to a device and the license has been activated.
Not Activated
The key has been assigned to a device but the license has not been activated (30
day grace period is in effect).

and obtain a new key).
Activation Required
The key has been assigned to a device but has not been activated and the 30
day grace period has expired (you must activate the license to use the device).
Blank
The key has not been assigned to a device and is available for use.
46
| Reference: Configuring the system
Adding product keys
There are three ways to add product keys to the license database:
■
■
Enter each key manually (see page 46). To avoid typing errors, you should copy and paste
the key.
Import the keys from a text file (see page 46). This is the easiest method to use if you
receive your product keys electronically. If you buy a 10-pack of the product, you receive a
separate CD that contains a text file with the keys that you can import.
eCopy recommends that you use this method when licensing devices that are running
ShareScan Embedded software.
■
Use a site license.
When your organization purchases a site license, you receive a single site key, valid for
activation with a predefined number of devices. When you activate the key for a device,
eCopy associates the serial number of the device with the site key. When the number of
devices associated with the key reaches the predefined limit, you can no longer use the site
key to activate devices. To find out how many activations remain on your site license, call
Customer Support.
To enter a product key manually:
In the console tree, select System Information > Licensing.
2 Use either of the following methods to enter the product key:
■
Click <ENTER PRODUCT KEY> to make the edit field active, enter the product
key in the field, and then press ENTER.
1
■
Click New Key and enter the product key in the window that opens.
The system automatically fills in the remaining fields with information about the
product key.
3
Click OK.
When you add a product key for a device running ShareScan Embedded software, the
License Information tab displays product key information. You must now add the device
(see page 48).
eCopy ShareScan® Installation and Setup Guide | 47
To import product keys:
1
Create a text (.txt) file containing all your product keys, or, if you received a CD with
product keys, access the text file on the CD. If you received your product keys by e-mail,
you can copy and paste them into Notepad and save the file with a .txt extension.
Make sure you enter the product keys accurately. The Load Keys function does not report
invalid keys.
In the console tree, select System Information > Licensing.
3 Click Load Keys.
The Open window opens.
2
4
Select the text file containing the product keys and then click Open.
The License Information tab displays the imported keys.
Deleting product keys
You should only delete a key if you are upgrading the license type, for example, if you are
upgrading the key from “Evaluation” to “Full Product”. If you delete a key that has been
activated, you may lose the use of that key.
Note:
If you assign a device to another Services Manager, the license moves with the device; therefore, you
do not need to delete the key manually.

Adding a device with an embedded Client
An embedded device is a device running ShareScan Embedded software. You can manage
multiple devices with embedded Clients from the Administration console. Each device is
associated with a Services Manager. New devices, from the same manufacturer, inherit their initial
settings from the default device.
To add a device with an embedded Client:
Make sure the ShareScan Client is installed and running on the device.
2 In the console tree, select System Information > Licensing and then verify that you have
an available product key of the appropriate type (see page 46.)
3 In the console tree, right-click Devices and then click Add a new device.

Configuring the Express properties
The Express function enables you to reduce the amount of time that your users spend at the
device. You do this by enabling Express in a connector profile and specifying information, such as
a recipient's name, on the Express tab. The profile enables the user at the device to scan and send
documents without having to enter additional information.
Note:
When you configure an Express profile for a connector and Session Logon is enabled for the system,
users must still enter their session logon credentials on the main ShareScan Logon screen.
You can configure multiple profiles with Express enabled. Each profile can store documents in
different locations.
Depending on the connector, the Express tab enables you to preconfigure information that
accompanies the scanned document.
To configure the Express properties:

Configuring the Search while typing option
The Search while typing option enables ShareScan to automatically search for matching address
list entries after each character the user enters. This is a useful feature when the user is searching a
long list for an entry. The user does not have to type the entire name in the field.
Example:
A user wants to enter “Chris Levesque” in a user name field. As the user enters “c”, the Client displays the first
address entry that begins with “c”. As the user enters “h”, the Client displays the first address entry that begins
with “ch”. As the user enters “r”, the Client displays the first address entry that begins with “chr”. If there are
multiple users with the name “Chris”, the user can press the down arrow and select “Chris Levesque”.
eCopy recommends that you select this option only when the address list server responds fast
enough to allow rapid auto-completion.
By default, this option is enabled. If you do not want to use it, you must clear the Search while
typing check box.
If the Search while typing option is not enabled in the Administration console, users at the
scanning device will still be able to type in one or more characters and then activate the Search
while typing option using one of the following methods:
■
■
If the hard keyboard is selected, the user can press the built-in keyboard button located at
the end of the text control.
If the hard keyboard was not selected, or is not available, the user presses the Search button
on the soft keyboard screen.
Example:
A user enters “c”’ and nothing happens. The user then presses the Search icon or button. The Client then fills in
the field with the first address list entry beginning with “c”.
eCopy ShareScan® Installation and Setup Guide | 71
Configuring file name and index fields
You use the Field Editor or the Index Field Editor to add or edit fields that the user sees in the
Client. For information about index fields, which you use with the optional Quick Connect
Connector, see the eCopy Quick Connect Administrator’s Guide.
When you create file name fields or index fields, you select the field type in the editor. Quick
Connect, the Scan to eCopy Desktop Connector, the eCopy mail connectors, and the Activity
Tracking function use the Field Editor. For information about the field types used by Scan to
eCopy Desktop, the mail connectors, and the Activity Tracking function, see Table 13. For
information about the field types used by Quick Connect, see the eCopy Quick Connect
Administrator’s Guide.

eCopy ShareScan® Installation and Setup Guide | 75
Configuring support for local address books
ShareScan supports the use of Microsoft SQL Server Express 2005 (SQL Express) for the storage
of e-mail and fax addresses in local address books.
Important!
You must use the version of the SQL Express installation program that is provided on the
ShareScan CD and accessed through the Optional Components menu. Using any other method
of installation, such as downloading SQL Express from the Internet, will not provide the
configuration settings required for SQL Express to work correctly with ShareScan.
When enabled, the ShareScan address book stores e-mail addresses and fax numbers typed in at
the eCopy-enabled device. This enables users at a device to select addresses and fax numbers from
a local address book instead of having to type a recipient’s complete address or fax number each
time.
All Services Managers can share the address book database, which can be on any computer on
your network. However, you may choose to create multiple databases on the same SQL Express
installation. For example, you may choose to create one database for the Engineering department
and another database for the Sales department. If you are using a combination of e-mail and fax
connectors, eCopy recommends that you create a separate database for each department.
Note:
All e-mail and fax connectors provided by eCopy, Inc., include global address book support that
enables users at an eCopy-enabled device to select recipients from a Global Address List. Therefore,
you do not need to configure SQL Express for global address book support. You only need to
configure SQL Express for local address book support.
76
| Reference: Common configuration information for connectors
Installing SQL Express
You must install SQL Express using the ShareScan installation program.
To install SQL Express:
Insert the ShareScan installation CD into the CD drive and then click Optional
Components.
2 Select Install SQL Express and follow the on-screen instructions.
During installation, SQL Server prompts you for a password. You will need this password
when you create an address book database. The password must contain a minimum of 6
characters and must include alpha and numeric characters.
1
Note:
The version of SQL Express provided with ShareScan does not require any further configuration.
However, should you need to check the configuration settings, you can access the SQL Server
Configuration Manager from the Start menu of your computer. For more information on the installed
SQL product, see the Help file available from the Help menu in the SQL Server Configuration Manager.
eCopy ShareScan® Installation and Setup Guide | 77
Creating a local address book database
You can create a local address book database on any PC running the Services Manager. Once you
have created the database, it is available to all other Services Managers on the network.
Note:
SQL Server must be running when you create the database.
If you are using a firewall, you must add SQLSERVER.exe and UDP Port 1434 to the exceptions list.
To create a local address book database:
In the console tree, select your e-mail or fax connector, select Properties, and then select
the Address Books or Local Address Book tab.
2 Under Local Address Book or under Address Books (for Lotus Notes connectors), click

eCopy Connector for Microsoft Exchange
The eCopy Connector for Microsoft Exchange enables a user to send scanned documents from
an eCopy-enabled device as e-mail attachments from a generic Microsoft Exchange account or
from the user’s personal Microsoft Exchange account. eCopy recommends that you create a
generic Microsoft Exchange account for use by ShareScan.
While ShareScan always uses the ShareScan User account information to log on to the Exchange
server and to retrieve the Global Address List, it sends scanned documents from this account only
if the Send from personal account option is not selected.
If the Send from personal account option is selected, the connector prompts the user to log on at
the device. The Wizard selects the Send from personal account option automatically.
About Exchange Environment connection protocols
The eCopy Connector for Microsoft Exchange supports four combinations of connection
protocols that can be used to connect to your Exchange server, depending on your environment.
The Wizard automatically selects the protocol based on the Exchange environment information
that you supply. For information about the available combinations of protocols and the
environments in which they can be used, see Table 22.

eCopy Connector for Fax via Microsoft
Exchange
The eCopy Connector for Fax via Microsoft Exchange enables users to scan and fax documents
from an eCopy-enabled device through an e-mail-to-fax gateway on the Microsoft Exchange
server. To use this connector, you must have a network fax server and the appropriate Exchange
server plug-in.
The recipient’s fax number is included in the To field (on the ShareScan Client) in the format
required by the fax server. The server plug-in recognizes the recipient address as a fax number and
hands the request off to the network fax server for delivery as a fax.
While ShareScan always uses the ShareScan User account information to log on to the Exchange
server and retrieve the Global Address List, it sends scanned documents from this account only if
the Send from personal account option is not selected.
If the Send from personal account option is selected, the connector prompts the user to log on at
the device. The Wizard selects the Send from personal account option automatically.

The eCopy Connector for Fax via Microsoft Exchange and the eCopy Connector for Microsoft

Before e-mail can be sent from a personal Lotus Notes account, you configure the eCopyMail
pass-through database on a Domino HTTP server. Refer to the technical documentation in the
following directory for further information and setup instructions:
c:\Program
Files\eCopy\ShareScanOP\ShareScanOPManager\Connectors\LNotesMail\PassThruDB
The connector provides access to the Lotus Notes address book as well as to the local Internet
address book. When a user sends e-mail from a personal Lotus Notes account, a copy of the
message is automatically delivered to the sender’s Inbox folder.
Important!
You must install the Lotus Notes client before you can install the Lotus Notes e-mail or fax
connector. The Lotus Notes e-mail and fax connectors will not be available for installation unless
the Lotus Notes client is installed on the computer running the Services Manager.
If the Lotus Notes client installation program prompts you to choose between the Multi-User
Install option and the Single User Install option, make sure that you select the Single User Install
option.
ShareScan typically uses the login name specified in the Active ID file to access the Global
Address List, while sending messages from the user’s personal Lotus Notes account.
To configure eCopy Connector for Lotus Notes Mail properties:
In the console tree, select Lotus Notes Mail > Properties.
2 Select the Display tab and then specify the settings (see Table 9).

eCopy Connector for Fax via Lotus Notes
The eCopy Connector for Fax via Lotus Notes enables users to scan and fax documents from an
eCopy-enabled device through an e-mail-to-fax gateway on the Lotus Notes server. To use this
connector, you must have a network fax server and the appropriate Lotus Notes server plug-in.
The scanned document, along with sender and recipient information, is sent to the Lotus Notes
server using the local Lotus Notes client.
Before faxes can be sent from a personal Lotus Notes account, you must configure the eCopyMail
pass-through database on a Domino HTTP server. Refer to the technical documentation in the
following directory for further information and setup instructions:
c:\Program
Files\eCopy\ShareScanOP\ShareScanOPManager\Connectors\LNotesMail\PassThruDB
The connector provides access to the Lotus Notes address book as well as to the local Internet
address book. When a user sends e-mail from a personal Lotus Notes account, a copy of the

the Lotus Notes client is installed on the computer running the Services Manager.
If the Lotus Notes client installation program prompts you to choose between the Multi-User
Install option and the Single User Install option, make sure that you select the Single User Intall
option.
The recipient’s fax number is included in the To field (on the ShareScan Client) in the format
required by the fax server. The server plug-in recognizes the recipient address as a fax number and
hands the request off to the network fax server for delivery as a fax.
ShareScan typically uses the login name specified in the Active ID file to access the Global
Address List, while sending messages from the user’s personal Lotus Notes Mail account.

Scan to eCopy Desktop™
The eCopy™ Scan to eCopy Desktop Connector enables ShareScan users at an eCopy-enabled
device to scan documents and send them to recipients’ scan inboxes or to network home
directory folders, where the scanned documents can be retrieved by eCopy Desktop. For
information about using eCopy Desktop, refer to the eCopy Desktop documentation or Help.
Depending on the configuration of the connector, the recipient may be the user scanning the
document or any other eCopy Desktop user whose scan inbox is set up to receive scanned
documents via the connector. The connector can also be configured to send scanned documents
to storage destination, specifically Windows, Novell, or FTP folders, or to folders on a USB Flash
Drive.
The following list provides several notes about this connector:
■
■
■
You cannot configure a connector profile to send scanned documents to both scan
inboxes/home directories and a storage destination.
When a ShareScan user at an eCopy-enabled device chooses a recipient, the scanned
document is delivered to the recipient’s scan inbox or to the specified folder in the
recipient’s network home directory.
You can configure the connector to secure the scan inboxes of recipients. Users must enter
the network password associated with a recipient’s scan inbox before the connector can
send scanned documents to the scan inbox. The Authenticate users option is automatically
selected when the inbox type is set to “Home Directories”.
Any user can send a scanned document to any user’s scan inbox. However, only the owner
can read from the scan inbox.
■
The list of available recipients that appears on the Specify Recipient screen (in the
ShareScan Client) includes all users in the Windows Active Directory or Novell eDirectory,
unless you restrict usage by choosing a base DN that limits the scope of the search.

About eCopy Desktop scan inboxes and home directories
eCopy Desktop can use either scan inboxes or network home directories to store scanned
documents received from the Scan to eCopy Desktop Connector:
■
Scan inboxes: The connector creates scan inboxes when users first use the connector at a
device. The connector creates scan inboxes in folders located beneath the Inbox root
directory.
When the connector creates scan inboxes, it assigns the permissions needed to ensure the
appropriate level of scan inbox privacy. The connector uses the ShareScan Administrator
group you designate in the Scan to Desktop Properties window to implement the required
security.

■
Home Directories: The network administrator must create these directories. If you
configure the connector to use a network home directory to store scanned documents, the
connector automatically uses the Scan to Self and Authenticate Users options.
Network security ensures that only the Local Administrator, the ShareScan Administrator,
and the local user can read from or write to the root of the network home directory or to
the specified subdirectory. Scan to eCopy Desktop must connect to the specified folder as
the owner of the home directory.
Important!
Network home directories configured through a logon script are not supported.
You configure a Scan to eCopy Desktop connector profile to scan to a single inbox type: scan
inboxes or network home directories. You cannot configure the connector profile to scan to both
types of inboxes. However, if you modify the inbox type in the connector profile, so that some
users have scan inboxes while others have network home directories, both types of inboxes can
co-exist on the same system.

About the Inbox root directory
The Inbox root directory, which was called “Inbox Management Directory” in previous versions
of ShareScan, contains scan inboxes and a file named “userdirs.txt”. When users at a device use
the connector for the first time, their names and the paths to their scan inboxes or network home
directories are added to the userdirs.txt file.
The Inbox Agent uses the userdirs.txt file to provide eCopy Desktop with the path information
that eCopy Desktop needs to connect to scan inboxes or network home directories (see
page 138).
Before you can use the Scan to eCopy Desktop Connector, you must configure the Inbox root
directory (see page 130).
The connector automatically assigns specific file and folder permissions to ensure inbox security
(see Table 39 or see Table 40) depending on your network environment.

Preconfiguring Scan to eCopy Desktop
Notes:
If you are migrating from an earlier version of eCopy ShareScan and have already configured an Inbox
root directory, you can use the existing location and settings. You can also import profiles from earlier
versions of the connector using the Import / Export tool in the Administration console. For more
information see the Administration console Help.
If you have a Novell network with multiple trees, you must set the Preferred tree field in the Novell
client configuration so that the eCopy Inbox Agent and Scan to eCopy Desktop Connector will
function properly.
Before you can configure Scan to eCopy Desktop in the Administration console, a network
administrator must complete the following steps.
To preconfigure Scan to eCopy Desktop:
Create the Inbox root directory. If the directory is on a Microsoft or Novell network, you
must share it.
2 Create a service account that will deliver scanned documents to scan inboxes or to network
home directories.
3 Add the service account to a new or existing group in one of the following locations:
■
On the domain controller, for Windows domain-based networks.
1
■
On NDS , for Novell networks.
■
On the local machine, for workgroups.
ShareScan uses this group when assigning permissions to the Inbox root directory and
scan inboxes.
Note:
If multiple Services Managers are pointing to the same userdirs.txt file in the Inbox root
directory, the group to which the service account belongs must be identical on all those
Services Managers.
Give the group Full Control access rights to the Inbox root directory.
5 For workgroup implementations only, on the PC where the scan inboxes are located, create
a local account for each user of Scan to eCopy Desktop.

About the Inbox Agent
The eCopy Inbox Agent is a Windows service that is installed with the Services Manager. It uses
the userdirs.txt file to provide eCopy Desktop with the path information that eCopy Desktop
needs to connect to scan inboxes or network home directories. eCopy Desktop uses the UDP
(User Datagram Protocol) to communicate with the Inbox Agent.
eCopy
Desktop

Important!
The default UDP server port is 9999 and the client port is 8888. The default multicast server and
client IP address is 239.254.5.6. If you need to change these settings, contact Customer Support
for assistance.
Example
If you are logged on to your PC as <auser>, eCopy Desktop sends a UDP message to the Inbox Agent
requesting the path to your scan inbox. The Inbox Agent looks up <auser> in the userdirs.txt file and returns the
path to eCopy Desktop, which uses it to open <auser>’s scan inbox.
eCopy ShareScan® Installation and Setup Guide | 139
If you do not enable the Inbox Agent, each eCopy Desktop user must manually configure the
path to the scan inbox. For information about configuring eCopy Desktop, see the eCopy
Desktop documentation or Help.

Using the fingerprint scanner
To configure the fingerprint scanner you must:
■
■
Use the ShareScan Administration console to configure Session Logon (see page 42) and
enable Activity Logging (see page 147) and ID Services (see page 153).
Register user fingerprints at the device.
Registering fingerprints at the device
The first time a user tries to use the fingerprint scanner, the device checks to see if the fingerprint
is already registered in its database. If the fingerprint is not found, the Fingerprint Registration
Wizard opens.
To register a fingerprint:
With the Fingerprint Registration Wizard open, swipe your finger three times across the
fingerprint scanner.
All three fingerprint swipes must match. If any fingerprint swipes do not match, press
Retry and then repeat the process.
2 When the fingerprints match, click Next.
The Login Information window opens.
3 Enter your user name, password, and domain, and then click Test.
The information is authenticated and is then associated with the scanned fingerprint.
4 Click Save to store the information.
The next time you use the device you can use the fingerprint scanner to log on.
1
Logging on using the fingerprint scanner
Make sure that Session Logon is configured, before you try to log on using the fingerprint
scanner. The fingerprint scanner only works when the Session Logon screen is displayed.
To log on using the fingerprint scanner:
When the device displays the Session Logon screen, swipe your finger across the
fingerprint scanner.
A window shows the progress of the authentication process.
2 When the main ShareScan client screen appears, continue scanning your document.
1
Notes:
■
If your fingerprint is already registered and the Registration screen appears when you try to log on using the
fingerprint scanner, click Cancel and re-swipe your finger.
■
If your password has changed, the Fingerprint Registration Wizard will prompt you to enter the new
password when you swipe your finger.

Using the on-screen keyboard
The sequence of some procedures depends on whether you are using a hard keyboard or the onscreen keyboard for text input.
Notes:
Some devices running ShareScan Embedded software support a hard keyboard and the on-screen
keyboard. For ScanFront devices, ShareScan automatically detects the USB hard keyboard (but not a
PS/2 hard keyboard).. You do not have to specify which keyboard to use on the device.
If you are using a Canon ScanFront device, eCopy recommends that you use a USB hard keyboard. If
the ShareScan for Canon ScanFront software detects a USB keyboard, a keyboard icon will not appear
to the right of fields that require text input.
The following list summarizes a few on-screen keyboard functions:

Quick reference to using an eCopy
Connector
This section provides you with a general procedure for using an eCopy Connector to scan and
send a document. For information about functions unique to each connector, refer to the
connector-specific information in this guide.
This general procedure includes information about performing functions that are common to
many connectors, such as specifying document and scanner settings. The actual steps that your
users will perform will depend on the connector profile they use. For example, if you configure a
connector profile to use the Express function (see page 67), users will not need to perform many
of the steps included in the procedure in this section.
This procedure uses the eCopy Connector for Microsoft Exchange as an example. The connector
profile uses the following configuration settings:
■
Enable Session Logon
■
Send from personal account
■
Add messages to Sent Items folder
■
Allow user to select recipients
■
Allow user to add recipients to Cc list
■
Search Global Address List
■
Search Outlook Contacts
■
Enable user to manually enter addresses when sending e-mail
■
Default subject line and note
The process described in this section assumes that you are using the hard keyboard.
eCopy ShareScan® Installation and Setup Guide | 159
General procedure for using an eCopy Connector
Scan
1
Place your document in the feeder.
If your system is configured to use the Session Logon feature, enter your user credentials
on the Logon screen and then press Logon, or, if your device supports a fingerprint
scanner, swipe your finger across the scanner. If your Session Logon credentials are not
valid, the Logon screen for the connector will appear after you preview the scanned
document.
Notes:
If the profile is configured to send scanned documents from a generic ShareScan User
account; you will not need to log on.
If Search while typing is enabled on the Session Logon tab, ShareScan will search for
matching address list entries after each character you enter in the User Name field. Select
your name from the list that appears as you enter each character.
When you have successfully logged in, the Home screen appears.
2
Review the default scanner settings in the left pane; use the down arrow button to view
additional scanner options. To change a setting, press the option, such as “Paper size” and
then press the setting on the toolbar that appears.
ShareScan will use the modified scanner settings for all subsequent pages that you scan
during this session, unless you change settings from the Preview screen.
3
After changing the scanner settings, press a connector button, such as a Scan and Mail
connector button, to start scanning the document that is in the feeder.
The Client displays the “Processing” message in the lower left corner of the screen.
160
| Reference: Using eCopy Connectors
Preview
1
When the connector finishes scanning the document, review the scanned images.
The buttons on the Preview screen enable you to view, delete, rotate, and change the
magnification of the images. After pressing either of the Zoom buttons, you can scroll
through an image and move it by dragging your finger along the image, or by using Page
Up, Page Down, Home, or End keys or the arrow keys.
2
If necessary, scan additional pages or re-scan any of the original pages by placing the pages
in the feeder and then pressing the Scan More button. ShareScan uses the current scanner
settings.
When you scan additional pages, the Client inserts them after the page that is currently
displayed on the Preview screen. For example, if the Client is displaying page 5 of an 8page document and you scan 2 more pages, the Client inserts the new pages after page 5.
To review and change the scanner settings, press the Scanner Settings button on the
Preview screen. The Scanner Settings... screen appears. After changing the scanner
settings, press OK.
4 To review and change the document settings, press the Document Settings button on the
Preview screen. After changing the document settings, press OK.
5 When you have scanned all the pages in the document and are satisfied with the settings,
press Next.
6 If prompted, enter any additional document information requested by the connector
profile. For example, mail connector profiles can be configured to prompt you to specify
an output file name.
3
Authenticate (by Connector)
1
If Session Logon was not enabled, and if the connector profile is configured to send
scanned documents from a personal e-mail account, the system will prompt you to log on.
Note:
2
If the profile is configured to send scanned documents from a generic ShareScan User
account; you will not need to log on.
Enter your user name and password and then press Next.
eCopy ShareScan® Installation and Setup Guide | 161
Send
1
If the Send screen appears, select or enter the recipients of the scanned document and,
optionally, specify subject line and notes information. (The fields depend on the connector
[see Table 50].)
Note:
If the profile is configured to use the Express or Send to self features, the Send screen will not
appear.
If the connector profile allows you to manually enter recipient addresses, it may also be
configured to add those addresses to a local address book (see page 79). The next time you
want to send a document to those recipients, you will be able to select them from the local
address book. You will not have to manually enter the addresses again.
If the Search while typing option is enabled and the profile is configured to search the
Global Address List and the Outlook Contacts folder for recipient names, as well as to
allow you to manually enter e-mail addresses, the connector displays the first address in the
address list or Contacts folder that matches the characters that you type. For example,
assume that you want to enter client1@address.com in the To field. When you type c, the
connector will display CentralShipping, if it is in the Global Address List or in the Contacts
folder. Continue entering the entire Internet e-mail address.
2
When you are ready to send the document, press Send.
After the connector sends the document, the Document successfully sent screen
appears.

| Reference: Installation environment
Network environment
ShareScan uses TCP ports for communication between the Client and the server application on
the PC running the Services Manager. Several ports must be available (not blocked) in order to
enable this communication (see page 171). Internal network traffic between the client and server
is minimal.
You can use multicast UDP to automatically discover and connect to other Services Managers for
remote administration. Multicast UDP also provides a fast way to discover eCopy-enabled
devices.
ShareScan runs on domain-based networks and in workgroup environments. In a domain
environment, the system requires static IP addresses. The Domain Name
System (DNS) is used to resolve host names in a domain environment. In a workgroup
environment, all eCopy-enabled devices and Services Managers must have static IP addresses.
eCopy-enabled devices and the Services Manager can be on different subnets or virtual local area
networks (VLANs) provided that the devices can communicate with the Services Manager using
an IP address.
ShareScan does not support network attached storage (NAS) devices.
For information about Novell support, see page 175.
eCopy ShareScan® Installation and Setup Guide | 167
Hardware configuration guidelines
To help you gauge hardware requirements, there are three typical usage scenarios and the
hardware requirements for each scenario (see Table 52).
TABLE 52. Hardware configuration guidelines
Scenario type
Description
Hardware requirements
General office
use
A typical office environment where
multiple multifunction peripherals (MFPs)
support a combination of printing,
copying, and scanning.
Equivalent to an Intel® Pentium® 4 (P4)
2.4 GHz machine with Hyper-Threading
enabled and with 1 GB of RAM
(recommended). The minimum RAM
requirement is 512 MB.
Light production
scanning
An environment where multiple devices
scan simultaneously for continuous periods
with occasional creation of searchable text.
Requires CPU-intensive OCR processing by
the Services Manager.
Dual processor P4 3.2 GHz machines with
Hyper-Threading enabled and with at least
1 GB of RAM.
Heavy
production
scanning
Same as light production scanning except
that searchable text is created for all
scanned pages. Includes file batching.
Dual processor Xeon machines with at
least 1 GB of RAM.
For the most effective throughput, consider the following information:
■
■
■
Memory is the most important element in the achievement of efficient throughput. If the
Services Manager PC is supporting more than 3 devices, it must have at least 512 MB of
RAM.
While a fast IDE drive (7200 RPM) is acceptable, a fast SCSI drive (15,000 RPM) improves
throughput. NTFS is the required drive format.
Desktop or workstation P4 or Xeon class machines with more memory are more effective
than traditional server-class machines, such as Intel Pentium III class machines with high
I/O throughput.
For the maximum number of devices supported for each hardware configuration and usage
scenario, refer to the eCopy Web site. Your company's network configurations, the amount of
simultaneous scanning, and the use of the Create Searchable Text option can affect system
performance, which in turn can affect the supported number of devices.

Network infrastructure worksheet
Multiple domains and multiple workgroups are supported only if the Services Manager and all
eCopy-enabled devices are configured to communicate with one other via TCP or UDP, without
any port filtering or blocking.
Depending on the topology of the network, degradation in performance can occur when devices
span multiple domains. ShareScan supports child domains provided that the devices and the
Services Manager can communicate using an IP address. When devices cross domains, the system
checks to see whether the device can resolve the IP address by name. If it cannot resolve the
address, the device communicates using the IP address of the Services Manager.

| Reference: Installation environment
DNS considerations
The Services Manager must be able to resolve the names of associated devices, whether through a
Domain Name Service (DNS) server on the local network or through the HOSTS file on the
Services Manager PC.
DNS should only be enabled on an eCopy-enabled device when there is a DNS server on the
local network.
Using a DNS server on the local network
Make sure the DNS server on the local network automatically registers the host names and IP
addresses of all devices on the local network. Older versions of operating systems and DNS
servers do not do this automatically.
Configuring the HOSTS file
If you do not have a DNS server on the local network, add the IP addresses and host names to the
HOSTS file in the \Windows\System32\Drivers\Etc directory on the Services Manager PC, as
in the following example:
#
#
#
#
#
#
This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
space.
# For example:
#
#
102.54.94.97
38.25.63.10
127.0.0.1
rhino.acme.com
x.acme.com

Novell support
On Novell networks, ShareScan does not support direct communication between the Services
Manager and eCopy-enabled devices. However, when the Novell client is installed on the PC that
is running the Services Manager, some connectors (Quick Connect, Scan to eCopy Desktop, and
LDAP/SMTP) can use a back-end Novell server for authentication and temporary file storage (of
scan inboxes).

Although Windows includes the Microsoft Client for NetWare Networks, eCopy has not tested
ShareScan with this client software and cannot recommend it. You should install the same
NetWare client you are using on the rest of your networked PCs. eCopy strongly recommends that
you install the latest 32-bit Novell client.
Note:
If you have a Novell network with multiple trees, you must set the Preferred tree field in the Novell
client configuration for the eCopy Inbox Agent (see page 138) and Scan to eCopy Desktop connector
to function properly.
