AXIS 700 User’s Manual
Section 1: Introduction
Section 1 Introduction
The AXIS 700 Network Scan Server
The AXIS 700 connects document scanners to Ethernet networks.
Together with a scanner, it allows paper-based information such as
documents, photographs and reports to be sent across the enterprise
environment or around the world. The AXIS 700 can also be
integrated with workflow and document management systems.
By sending the scanned documents to the destination via the
Internet/intranet, you will save time and faxing/mailing costs, and
thus improve your organization efficiency.
The AXIS 700 is a standalone unit, located beside the scanner. You
need one AXIS 700 device for each scanner.
We suggest that you place the scanner and the AXIS 700 in the
workgroup area, e.g. next to your printers and facsimile machines.
This makes it convenient to distribute paper-based information
electronically to e-mail addresses and application servers.

Features and Benefits
File Server
Independence
The AXIS 700 is connected as a node in an Ethernet network,
enabling scanners to be accessed through the network, via Internet and
intranet-related protocols. It can be used independently of file servers,
i.e. communication takes place directly between the network client
and the AXIS 700, without network licensing fees. This results in high
performance, reliability and independence of other equipment.
Simplicity
The file-server independent approach makes the installation quick and
convenient. In most environments, the physical connection to the
network is the only installation required prior to using the AXIS 700.
No software needs to be installed on clients or file servers, except for
applications for viewing the generated images in TIFF, JPEG and
PDF format.
Internet/Intranet
Web Server
The built-in web server enables access to the AXIS 700 from any
standard Web browser, such as Netscape Navigator or Internet
Explorer. Thus, the AXIS 700 can be accessed from Windows, OS/2,
Macintosh and UNIX workstations. The support includes scanning to
Web browser and Administration tools.
Ease of Use
The AXIS 700 is designed to be as easy as possible to install and use:
•
•
•
•
•
•
No special software to learn
Integrated scanner drivers, image-file creation and network
transfer methods
Auto-detection of scanner type at startup
Auto-selection of sheetfeeder or flatbed

Section 2: Basic Installation
DHCP
AXIS 700 User’s Manual
DHCP is available in Windows NT and UNIX. It operates on the
entire network and allows for automatic but temporary assignment of
Internet addresses from a central pool. DHCP will, when enabled,
cause the selected host to automatically allocate and download a free
Internet address, default router address and subnet mask to the
requesting AXIS 700. It also provides validation data that defines how
long the Internet addresses will remain valid.
ARP
ARP is available in Windows 95, Windows NT, UNIX and OS/2. It
requires the Internet address for each new device to be downloaded
individually. Note that ARP does not work over routers.
RARP
RARP is available in UNIX. It downloads the Internet address to each
device automatically. It requires a RARP daemon on your system and
operates within a single network segment only.
BOOTP
BOOTP is available in UNIX. BOOTP is similar to RARP, but
operates on the entire network. It requires a BOOTP daemon on your
system.
Procedures for using each of the methods are outlined later in this
section.
AXIS 700 User’s Manual
Section 2: Basic Installation
Before you begin
Make sure the AXIS 700 is powered on and attached to the network.
System Privileges
You will need administrator privileges on the Windows NT server or
root privileges on the UNIX system.
Ethernet Address
Depending on the method you are using, you will need to know the
Ethernet address of your AXIS 700. The Ethernet address is based
upon the AXIS 700 serial number. You will find the number on the
underside label.
Internet Address
Acquire an unused Internet address from your Network
Administrator.

address using ARP. Perform the following commands to download the
Internet address and verify the communication.
From the DOS prompt, type the following:
arp -s <Internet address> <Ethernet address>
ping <Internet address>
The Ethernet address equals the serial number of the AXIS 700
with each pair of digits separated by a hyphen.
Example:
arp -s 172.16.253.80 00-40-8c-11-00-86
ping 172.16.253.80
AXIS 700 User’s Manual
Section 2: Basic Installation
The host will return ‘Reply from 172.16.253.80...’ or a similar
message. This indicates that the address has been set and that the
communication is established.
Important!

†
Using ARP in
UNIX and OS/2
Windows 95 only: If the ARP table is empty, you must first ping
an existing unit on your network before setting the Internet
address of your AXIS 700. Type arp -a to display the ARP table.
Once the AXIS 700 has established communication using an
appropriate Internet address, the arp/ping commands cannot be
used to change the address. The reason for this is to avoid
accidental or unauthorized changes of the Internet address.
Restart the AXIS 700 to make it accept the setting of the Internet
address. You can perform a restart remotely via the AXIS 700 web
interface. See “Specifying System Settings ”on page 36.
When you execute the ping command for the first time, the
response time may be significantly longer than usual.
In UNIX and OS/2, type the following commands to download the
Internet address and verify the communication:
arp -s <host name> <Ethernet or node address> temp
ping <host name>
The Ethernet address or node address equals the AXIS 700 serial
number with each pair of digits separated by a colon.
Example:
arp -s spserv 00:40:8c:11:00:86 temp
ping spserv
The host will return ‘spserv is alive’ or a similar message. This
indicates that the address has been set and that communication is
established.

Using RARP
in UNIX
AXIS 700 User’s Manual
The arp -s command may vary between different systems. Some
BSD-type systems expect the host name and Ethernet address in
reverse order. IBM AIX systems require the additional argument
ether for Ethernet networks, e.g. arp -s ether spserv
00:40:8c:11:00:86 temp
Once the AXIS 700 has established communications using an
appropriate Internet address, the arp/ping commands cannot be
used to change the address. The reason is to avoid accidental or
unauthorized change of the Internet address. Restart the AXIS
700 to make it accept the setting. You can perform a restart
remotely via the AXIS 700 web interface. See “Specifying System
Settings ”on page 36.
When you execute the ping command for the first time, the
response time may be significantly longer than usual.
Follow these steps to download the Internet address using the RARP
method:
1. Append the following line to your Ethernet address table. This is
typically performed by editing the file /etc/ethers.
<Ethernet address>
<host name>
Example:
00:40:8c:24:c0:1c
spserv
2. If necessary, update your host table and alias name databases as
required by your system.
3. Start the RARP daemon, if it is not already running. This is typically
performed using the command rarpd -a
4. Restart the AXIS 700 to download the Internet address. You can
perform a restart remotely via the AXIS 700 web interface. See
“Specifying System Settings ”on page 36.

sequence number to the file name. A new image file will then be
stored each time someone scans to the specified destination.
For example, if you select 01 as the sequence number from the
drop-down list, the first time you scan an image to the specified
destination, the file will be saved as filename01. Next time the
file will be saved as filename02 etc.
For a directory with many files, performance will increase if you
store the sequence number on the FTP server. However, to do
that, the AXIS 700 must be permitted to overwrite/delete files in
the specified directory.

Scanning Methods
The AXIS 700 supports three methods for distributing scanned

•
Scanning to an e-mail destination
Scanning to a file destination
Scanning to a Web browser
You can use any or all of these methods, depending on your specific
needs.

Section 4: Using the AXIS 700
AXIS 700 User’s Manual
Destinations
Scanning to destinations, i.e. e-mail and file destinations, is performed
directly via the AXIS 700 control panel. This is typically how the
AXIS 700 will be used. However, the Administrator must first set up
the destinations from the Web browser interface.
E-mail
Scanning to e-mail allows sending scanned images as e-mails to
anyone defined in the destination list. It makes it easy to forward
image files to yourself and other persons. This method is what is now
de facto called Internet faxing.
The e-mail transfer uses the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP).
The scanned image is MIME-encoded and will either be sent as an email attachment, or stored on a file server and accessible from a
hyperlink in the e-mail.
If an application, e.g. an image viewer, has been associated with the
image type, double-clicking on the e-mail attachment starts the
appropriate application.
File
Scanning to file means that the scanned images are stored on a
network storage device. This could be on a server, a client with a
shared drive, a mainframe, or whatever device that is accessible via the
network as a file system. The distribution of the image files is achieved
using the File Transfer Protocol (FTP). FTP potentially enables
storing of files over the Internet.
You will typically scan to a file when specific software takes care of the
scanned information. Such software is for example groupware,
document management and workflow systems.
All users could have a directory of their own on the FTP server to
which they can send scanned information. In operating systems like
Windows 95 and Windows NT, shortcuts to the directories where
images are stored can be placed on the user’s desktop. This gives easy
access to the scanned information.
You can also print scanned images directly from a network printer by
sending the scanned image to a network print server. To do this, the
print server must support FTP and include a TIFF module. Refer to
the AXIS 700 Support Web for more information.
AXIS 700 User’s Manual
Web Browser
Section 4: Using the AXIS 700
Scanning to a Web browser is a convenient method for users that
infrequently scan or users that do not have an e-mail address. It is also
useful if you want to try a number of scanning profiles.
You place the document in the scanner and access the AXIS 700 from
a standard Web browser. You can then trigger scanning directly from
the Web browser and save the image within the Web browser dialog.
Depending on the image format used, the Web browser will display
the image in an associated viewer or ask you to save the file.
Data is sent directly between the AXIS 700 and the user, i.e. peer-topeer. This results in minimum network load, and normally no data
will be sent over the backbone of the network.
Scanning to Destinations
Note:
†
Before scanning to an e-mail address or a file, the Administrator
must have set up the destinations as described in “Specifying
Destinations” on page 33.
Perform these instructions from the AXIS 700 control panel:
1. The AXIS 700 display shows “Send to: xxxxxx” when it is
ready for use. For example:
6HQG WR
$FFRXQWLQJ 'HSW
2. Use
to scroll through the destination list, until you find
the desired destination. Press and hold the key to autorepeat the
scrolling. If needed, you can add e-mail destinations temporarily. See
“Adding Temporary Destinations ”on page 46.
3. If you want to send the image to more than one destination, press
Enter
to select each destination:
6HQG WR
3 $FFRXQWLQJ 'HSW
4. Repeat steps 2 and 3, until all desired destinations are selected.

By scanning multiple pages, you can accumulate several pages into
one image file. See “Multipage Image Files” on page 45.
If no operations are performed within five minutes of allocation,
the AXIS 700 will return to its default settings.
AXIS 700 User’s Manual
†
Multipage Image Files
Notes:
The AXIS 700 keeps all temporary settings in memory for 60
seconds from the last scan, and then resets all settings to the
default settings.
When scanning multiple pages, you can accumulate all the pages in
one image file. This applies to the TIFF and PDF formats only. To
utilize this feature, you must use a scanning profile with the Multipage
Documents parameter set to All pages in one file. This is the default
setting.
†
†
†
Job Separation Sheets
Section 4: Using the AXIS 700
The JPEG format always sends each page as one separate image
file.
Not all TIFF viewers support multipage image files. In this case,
you must use a scanning profile with the Multipage Documents
parameter set to Separate file for each page, or use Send
to
scan each page.
Double-sided is only available if the scanner supports duplex
scanning.
The AXIS 700 supports the job separation sheets that can be used with
the Canon DR-3020 scanner. A job separation sheet inserted in a
stack of paper will divide the scanning job into separate image files.
Other separation pages will be ignored.

Scanning color images to JPEG is more time consuming due to the
amount of computation performed by the AXIS 700. Therefore, do
not scan in higher resolution than needed, e.g. for web publishing of
color images, “Color low” (75 dpi) should be sufficient.
If you intend to manipulate a scanned color image using an image
editor, you are recommended to used uncompressed TIFF. Note that
uncompressed TIFF may generate very large files.
AXIS 700 User’s Manual
Section 4: Using the AXIS 700
This table outlines when to use the predefined scanning profiles:
Name
Description
Color pictures with high demand for precision. Suitable for photos,
databases, clip art in documents etc. Not suitable for web publishing,
Color high
since the image is larger than what the display will show. The JPEG
format cannot generate multipage files.
Color pictures suitable for web publishing, databases, clip art in
Color low
documents etc. The JPEG format cannot generate multipage files.
Black/white pictures, diagrams etc. which require more detail.
Gray high
Generates 16 shades of gray.
Black/white pictures suitable for web publishing. Generates 16 shades
Gray low
of gray.
Black/white documents intended for OCR, or documents containing
Text
small text. Suitable for most kind of document scanning. This is the
default scanning profile.
Black/white documents containing very small text. Excellent for OCR.
If the scanner does not support 600 dpi, its maximum resolution will be
Text high
used instead.
Black/white documents not intended for OCR, or documents
Text low
containing large text, e.g. invoices. Suitable when maximum scanning
speed and minimum file size is required.
Black/white documents with pictures. The pictures are dithered to
Text/Photo create a rasterized effect. Especially good for faxing. Not suitable for
OCR. As an alternative, try a grayscale profile.
Note:
Paper Sizes
Note:
Double-sided
Note:
†
The default scanning profile is Text.
The AXIS 700 comes pre-installed with 11 paper sizes designed to
cover most needs. See the table page 38. The paper sizes are
maintained by the Administrator.
†
The default paper size is Letter.
If supported by the attached scanner, you can select Double-sided to
scan both sides of a page simultaneously. This option is also known as
duplex and may be referred to by that term in the scanner
documentation.
†
By default double-sided is off.

AXIS 700 User’s Manual
Viewing Image Files
The AXIS 700 generates standard TIFF, PDF and JPEG images that
are supported by most image-related applications. The AXIS 700 does
not rely on any product-specific software installed on each client. Still,
to be able to use the images created, you need tools for viewing and
manipulating the images.
There are basically two different types of imaging tools:
•
•
Tools optimized for image/picture editing
Tools optimized for handling scanned documents
Tools for
Image/Picture Editing
Tools for image/picture editing normally supports JPEG and singleimage uncompressed TIFF. They are optimized for handling color and
grayscale images. Such tools are delivered with the desktop scanners.
Most tools will work, as long as JPEG and/or TIFF are supported.
Tools for Viewing,
OCR and Archiving
Tools for viewing, OCR and archiving generally support multipage
compressed TIFF, but often also JPEG. Document viewers are
optimized for presenting document data in a readable format on a
screen. Often suitable tools are bundled with desktop scanners. Today,
tools that combine viewing and simple archiving are becoming more
and more popular. These tools are delivered with Windows 95 and
Windows NT.
Acrobat Reader
The PDF format requires the Adobe Acrobat Reader. Acrobat Readers
for Windows (3.1, 95, NT), Macintosh and UNIX can be
downloaded free of charge from Adobe Systems web site
http://www.adobe.com. The tool is also available on the AXIS Online
CD.

Associating Image
Formats with
Applications
Section 4: Using the AXIS 700
When using the “Text” profiles for scanning documents, ensure
that the viewing tool supports multipage CCITT G.4-compressed
TIFF; this format is the most common standard for imaging and
archiving of scanned documents. If your application does not
support multipage documents, you can create a scanning profile
that generates single page documents, or scan each page as a
separate job.
When scanning pictures, e.g. for web publishing, use “Color low”
or “Color high” that both create a JPEG file. The image files
generated by these profiles are supported by basically all existing
image editors and Web browsers.
Extensive testing of popular tools have been made to ensure that
AXIS 700 is compatible with them. However, this does not
guarantee compatibility with all existing tools. If you find tools
that AXIS 700 does not support, we would like to know about it.
You find information about how to contact us in the Preface.
For further information, including recommendations for specific
tools and sample images created by the AXIS 700, see the AXIS
700 web site at http://www.axis.com/products/axis_700/
Applications are typically associated with a file format automatically
during the installation procedure. If not, you are recommended to
manually associate your image applications with the supported image
file formats, so that double-clicking on an image icon launches the
appropriate application.
In Windows 95 and NT, follow these steps to associate an application
with a specific file format:
1. In Windows Explorer, click the View menu, click Options, and
then click the File Types tab.
2. To create a new file type, click New Type. To modify the settings
for an existing file type, click the type, and then click Edit.
3. Specify a description for the file type and the file name extension
associated with this type of file.

Appendix C Updating the Software
The AXIS 700 software stored in Flash memory can easily be updated
over the network using FTP. All software updates are free of charge.
Instructions on how to carry out the update are supplied with the
software update.
Obtaining the Updated Software
Your Dealer
Contact your dealer to check if there has been any new issues of the
software. You should have your present version numbers ready to
compare against the latest software issues from Axis.
Axis Web Site
You may wish to check the Axis web site at http://www.axis.com/,
where you can download the latest versions of the software.
Anonymous FTP
You can also get files and information through anonymous ftp: log in
to ftp.axis.com and go to the /pub/axis/ directory.
AxisNews
If you subscribe to the AxisNews mailing list, Axis will regularly send
you newsletters about new products and updated software etc. Refer to
the Axis web site on how to join the AxisNews.
Flash MemoryThe software that runs your AXIS 700 is stored in Flash
memory. This is a memory chip that, like ordinary
ROM memory, keeps its contents even when the power
is turned off. What makes it unique is the possibility to
erase its contents and write new data to it. This means
that when software updates are available for your AXIS
700, you can make use of them without having to replace
any parts. The new software is simply loaded into the
AXIS 700 over the network.

AXIS 700 User’s Manual
Updating the Flash Memory
To upgrade over the network you will need the following:
•
The file with the new AXIS 700 software. The name of the file is
of the form product-version.bin, i.e. 700-1_10.bin for
software release 1.10 of the AXIS 700.
• A computer on the network with TCP/IP and FTP.
Follow these steps to upgrade the AXIS 700 software:
1. Log in to the AXIS 700 with the command ftp <Internet
address> where <Internet address> is the name or Internet
address assigned to the AXIS 700.
2. You will be prompted for user id and password. Use the user id root
which has the default password pass.
3. Issue the command bin to change to binary transfer mode.
4. Issue the command put <software name> flash where
<software name> is the name of the new software, e.g. 7001_10.bin.
5. During the flash load, the AXIS 700 LCD will display the message
“Upgrading server” and a progress bar. Wait for the flash load to
finish. This normally takes 1 to 4 minutes. The unit will then
automatically restart with the new AXIS 700 software.
Be careful not to interrupt the file transfer. If the transfer is
interrupted, the AXIS 700 may have to be re-initialized by your
dealer.
Caution!
6. Log out using the command quit, bye or exit depending on your
FTP version.
Notes:
†
If you are using a window-based FTP client application such as
Ws_ftp or Fetch, you must rename the new file <software
file> to flash before downloading.
