Using the Scan Management snap-in, you can add or remove scanners you want to manage on your network. Scanners must support Web Services on Devices (WSD). TCP/IP scanners are not supported. For a list of other scanner requirements, see Understanding Web Services Scanners.

To add or remove a scanner
  1. Open Scan Management.

  2. In the left pane, click Scan Management, right-click Managed Scanners, and then click Manage.

  3. To add a scanner, in the Add or Remove Scanners dialog box, type the host name, IP address, or URI of the scanner, and then click Add.

  4. To remove a scanner, select the scanner from the list and then click Remove.

  5. When finished, click OK.

Additional considerations

  • To open Scan Management, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Scan Management.

  • In order to view available scanners on your network, ensure that network discovery is turned on.

On the Network and Sharing Center page, click Change advanced sharing settings. On the Advanced sharing settings page, click the arrow next to Domain arrow, click turn on network discovery, and then click Save changes.
