Hi pplz,

I have a client who has a Sharp multi function. It has a USB / Network port.

It seems scan only works via USB.  However there is an addon card to make it work via the network. The USB is then connected to the back of the printer then connected to a card on the scanner then runs out via the Network.

The old server which I replaced had an item of software running called

"Network Scanner Tool Version 3.2

The Network Scanner Tool receives scanned image files from network scanner devices

Hi.

From the intro i understand you want to have the tool installed again?
If so you can download the newest version here.
(Although this looks to me like a security tool)

Maybe you are better off with this piece of Sharp software.

The network scanner tool is normally a piece of software called "SharpDesk". I have a client who lease their MFPs and they got SharpDesk as part of that, but it think you normally have to pay for it.

Unfortunately, according to the Sharp website, there are no software downloads for that model:
Sharp AR-M207 downloadsHere's the link to a description of the Sharp Network Scanner Tool:
http://www.sharpusa.com/ForBusiness/DocumentSystems/MFPsPrinters/SoftwareApplications/WorkflowAndDocumentManagement/SharpOSANetworkScannerTool.aspx

As you can see at the bottom, it says, "Requires Sharpdesk v3.3 or later; Sharpdesk sold separately."

Here's the link to a description of Sharpdesk:
http://www.sharpusa.com/ForBusiness/DocumentSystems/MFPsPrinters/SoftwareApplications/WorkflowAndDocumentManagement/Sharpdesk33.aspx

Your version is 3.2. The links above are to 3.3. If you Google "Sharp Network Scanner Tool" or "Sharpdesk", you will get plenty of hits for downloading the software. I personally would not trust any of them, especially since this is for a client. I would get in touch with Sharp via their contact form:
http://www.sharpusa.com/ForBusiness/DocumentSystems/MFPsPrinters/ContactUs/ContactForm.aspx

Just my opinion. Regards, Joe
