Foreword
Welcome
PageScope is utility software that provides central control over
printers, copiers, and other devices on a network. With PageScope, you
can use a Web browser to check the current status of each device on the
network, and to change the configuration of the network and printer.
PageScope uses SNMP protocol, which is the standard for network
management. This means it can be used for management of a wide
range of devices, including printers and copiers, as well as other makes
of network printers and other devices that support standard PrinterMIB. PageScope is implemented based on Java 2 technologies,
enabling functions and operations that are equivalent to those found on
a most platforms that support Java.

• PageScope server starts up as a daemon process, so we recommend that
you install the package in the root partition.
• Perform the following operation under root privileges.
1.
2.
Extract the PageScope tar archive, which was compressed with
gzip, into the directory you want. This creates a directory named

2.2 Upgrading PageScope
For Windows Platform and Solaris Platform
• Upgrading from PageScope 2.1 and subsequent versions under
Windows 95/98/Me/2000/NT 4.0 or Solaris performs an overwrite
install, leaving device status data and logs intact.
• When upgrading from PageScope 2.0 or lower versions, you must
uninstall your old version of PageScope and delete the PageScope
folder, and then install the new version. In this case, the existing
PageScope server database cannot be used as the new installation.
For a new installation under Windows 95/98/Me/2000/NT 4.0, the
PageScope folder is created inside the Program Files folder by
default. In the case of Solaris, the PageScope folder is created in the
location where the PageScope tar archive is extracted.
For Linux Platform
• When upgrading from PageScope 3.0 and subsequent versions under
Linux, upgrading is performed by overwriting the older version with
the new one, leaving device status data and logs intact.
• PageScope 2.1 and previous versions are not compatible with
PageScope 3.0 and subsequent versions due to differences in glibc
versions.
Important!
• Make sure the PageScope server is shut down (not running) before you
try to upgrade it. See 2.4 Shutting Down the Server for more
information.
