Before Downloading

  • You must update the Scanner Central Admin Console when updating the Scanner Central Admin Server. Refer to Scanner Central Admin Connection Correspondence Table for more details.

  • Attention for users who have Windows Server 2003 R2.
    Windows Server 2003 R2 cannot be used for exporting Scanner Settings or Job-mode Settings for N7100 through Scanner Central Admin because these operations requires installation of .Net Framework 4.5, and .Net Framework 4.5 cannot be installed on Windows Server 2003 R2. Please use Windows Server 2008 or later in order to export the settings with Scanner Central Admin.
