Scan2x Manual Setup for Canon ScanFront 400 network scanner

 

The Canon ScanFront 400 network scanner is a combination of a cutting-edge document scanner design and a full colour touch-sensitive screen which allows Scan2x to give users a fully immersive document scanning experience from one device.

 

The ScanFront 400 unit is shipped with a basic built-in application that allows for simple jobs to be configured and output to a limited number of destinations. To prepare the unit to run Scan2x from the Scan2x server, several steps need to be followed.

 

Canon provide regular software updates with enhancements to the ScanFront operating system, and it is important that you ensure that you are running the latest update. To do this, go to the following link online and follow the instructions: https://www.canon-europe.com/support/products/document-scanners/scanfront-series/imageformula_scanfront-400.aspx?type=firmware

 

Once you are satisfied that your ScanFront is running the latest software, we can configure it to use Scan2x instead of the built-in application.

 

Upon starting the ScanFront 400 device, the home screen shown below will appear. Access the settings page by clicking on the Administration Settings button. Leave the password field empty (this is the standard value) and click ok.
