Scan2x Manual Setup for Canon imageRUNNER MFDs

 

The Canon imageRUNNER range of multifunctional devices can run software inside them, in an environment called MEAP. Additionally, the MFDs are also able to run web-based applications in a dedicated browser in an environment called MEAP Web. Scan2x on Canon MFDs runs in the MEAP Web environment.

 

In the event that the automated Scan2x deployment tool is unable to complete the configuration of the MFD to access the Scan2x service website due to security policy or other reasons, it is possible to perform a manual procedure to set up Scan2x through the MFD’s user interface.
