Introduction
1
Network ScanGear is a 32-bit TWAIN-compliant scanner driver that allows computers on a
network to use a Canon imageRUNNER series digital copier that is located in the same
subnet as a scanner.
It consists of the following software.
■ ScanGear Tool
This software is installed together with the Network ScanGear driver, and enables the
user to select the device name of the scanner on the network to be used for scanning with
the Network ScanGear driver. No scanner is selected during Network ScanGear
installation, so you must start the ScanGear Tool and select a scanner before use.
■ Network ScanGear driver
This is a scanner driver that can be accessed from TWAIN-compliant applications. This
driver is then used when scanning.
Readme File
The readme.txt file includes important notes on use of the product. Be sure to read it before
starting.
Help Information
When using Network ScanGear, help is always available from the following sources. Use
them when you are unsure about how to do an operation.
• When Network ScanGear is running, click the
ScanGear help.
button in the toolbar to display Network
• When the ScanGear Tool is running or the Network ScanGear driver settings dialog box is
displayed, click the Help button for help relating to the items in the dialog box.

Operating Environment
Network ScanGear requires the following operating environment.
1
Introduction
Hardware
• IBM PC/AT or compatible computer running Windows 95/98/Me/NT4.0/2000/XP
• At least 100 MB of available hard disk space (recommended)
NOTE
• Space equal to at least twice the size of the scanned image on the hard disk is required.
• Main memory must meet the following conditions:
For Windows 95/98/Me: at least 16 MB (32 MB or more recommended)
For Windows NT4.0/2000: at least 32 MB (48 MB or more recommended)
For Windows XP: at least 96 MB (128 MB or more recommended)
• Monitor providing at least 640 x 480 dot display resolution (800 x 600 dot or greater
recommended), at least 256 colors
• A network host adapter providing TCP/IP and UDP/IP protocols over Ethernet or Token
Ring
• The iR series digital copier. (With some imageRUNNER series digital copiers a Network
Scanner Kit is necessary.)
NOTE
• When scanning a large number of images or images that are very large, memory shortage can
result in errors or greatly reduced scanning speed. In this case, take one or more of the following
measures.
- Delete unnecessary files from the hard disk to release additional disk space, or increase the hard
disk capacity.
- Rescan at a lower resolution.
- Add more RAM.
- Set the virtual memory size as large as possible.
