Synappx Go FOR ADMIN

Configuration Steps

Step 4: Install & Update Agents

After configuring and downloading the agents from the Admin Portal, follow the steps below to install each agent.

MFP Agent

The Synappx Go MFP agent creates a secure connection to the Synappx Go cloud, discovers and maintains a list of MFPs, and manages scanning, printing, and copying in Synappx Go. A single MFP agent can manage anywhere from 50 to 100 MFPs in an organization, depending on the environment. Here is an overview of the MFP agent installation and configuration:

  • MFP agent installation starts on the PC/server. Ensure the prerequisites are met.
    • .NET 4.7.2 is required. If not already installed, a prompt will appear to download it during the agent installation. Allow the download.
  • MFP self-registers to the Synappx Go cloud using X.509 certificates.
  • MFP discovery is automatically completed for the assigned IP address range(s).
  • MFP agent and discovered MFPs are automatically visible on the Synappx Go Admin Portal.
  • Although the Synappx Go agent application is code-signed to assure integrity and authenticity of the software, some anti-virus systems may require registration or configuration.
  1. Copy the Sharp Synappx Go MFP Agent.zip file (downloaded in the previous step) and paste to a directory on the target PC or server.
  2. Unzip the file in the PC/server location. The package will include the files shown below. [View Image]
