How to Allow Sharpdesk through a Windows Firewall
A firewall is security software that is to help protect your Computer from things such as virus’, malware, and Hackers.

The control panel screen will open. Click on “System and Security”
Next click on “Allow a program through Windows Firewall” Send a test scan to Sharpdesk. If the error still appears on the copier then proceed to the next part of this guide
How to program your Computers IP address Into the address book
First, we need to know The copiers IP address The machine can print Out a report that has The IP address on it If you already know the IP address, skip the next three slides On the operation panel, Push the “System Settings” button. On most copiers, it is a physical button to the right on the touch screen. It can also look like a “gear” like shown above right. If your machine has the “i Pad” style touch screen. Push the “Settings” button. It should be one of the six buttons on the bottom area of the screen.
On the touch screen, push the button that says “List Print (User)”
Look for “All Custom Settings List” and push the print button that is next to it. A report will print out.
The first page of the report should have the IP address it may look similar to the page shown above. Bring this report with you to your computer The IP address may look similar to this Four sets of numbers separated by three dots. I have it highlighted in the example above
On your computer, open a web browser and type in the IP address into the address bar. As shown above to the left. In this example, I am using Google Chrome. It will take you to the copiers web site. It will look similar to the screen seen on the right. On this screen, click on “Address Book” on the left side of the screen.
Look for [Your user name – desktop] In this example, I am selecting “John – desktop”
In this next screen, we can see the IP address that is currently programmed into the profile The IP address that goes here, needs to be the IP address of your computer On the next slide, I will show you how to find out your computer’s IP Address Below is a zoomed in view of the IP Address blank
Open the start menu and then in the search box type in “cmd” You should see “cmd” pop up in under programs above as shown here Click on “cmd” and a black box that looks like a really old computer will open up
In this black box, type in the command “ipconfig” as shown here.
I have highlighted the IP address of my computer in this example. This is what we will type into the address book of the copier.
In this example, you can see that I have corrected the IP address. Scroll and click “Submit” as shown below. Try to send a test scan to Sharpdesk from your copier.
Congratulations! You fixed Scanning to Sharpdesk successfully!!
