This article provides basic information regarding the configuration of destination shortcuts with Scan to Network Folder (SNF).
This article is intended as a supplement to the Scan to Network Administrator's Guide.
IMPORTANT! This embedded solution software does not replace the functionality of a network TWAIN driver. A network TWAIN driver will still be required for the MFP to scan to TWAIN-compliant software applications.
Before you begin
IMPORTANT! You must confirm the following before attempting this procedure:
- - The solution is successfully installed on your MFP.
- - You have an active share on your computer.
- - If using a Guest account, make sure this account is enabled on the computer operating system with full read and write permissions.
Example Scan to Network destination shortcut creation
Currently up to 30 destination shortcuts can be created and stored on the MFP.
Older MFPs will require a base code of .P2XX or later.
