Automated Scan2x deployment on Canon ScanFront 400
Scan2x can work inside Canon’s ScanFront 400. To do this, an application needs to be installed on the device, and to do this we use the Scan2x Deployment Tool.
The deployment tool uses the web-based administration interface of the device remotely by automating Chrome on the PC on which the tool is run.
One can access the Deployment Tool through the following link - https://connect.avantech.com.mt/updates/DeploymentInstallerSetup.msi
