Kyocera MFP support scan to Email, Scan to SMB (File Share) and Scan to FTP
  1. Scan to Email, all is required is to enable the SMTP protocol and input the SMTP Server name/address and the default send from address. The default send from address does not have to be a real one e.g. . The scan image will be received as an email attachment.
  2. Scan to SMB, a contact (address) has to be created in the address book. It required “Host Name” which is the name or IP address of the computer that receives the scan image. “Path” which is the file share name and the “User Name” and “Password” of the user that have write access to the file share
  3. Scan to FTP, is similar to the Scan to SMB but it required a FTP server. Our FTP Software Utility can be used to turn your computer to a small FTP server.
