The Device Web Server (DWS) manages and controls embedded applications on web-based multi-function printers (MFPs) and single-function printers (SFPs).

The DWS supports user interactions with the printers. When a user accesses the Unified Client for Epson v1.0 application on a web-based device, the printer sends the request to the DWS. The request is processed by eCopy ShareScan and is sent back to printer.

If you have Equitrac installed on your system, DWS might currently be installed as an optional component. If you are deploying the Unified Client for Epson v1.0 in an eCopy ShareScan and Device Registration Service (DRS) environment without Equitrac, you can install a standalone DWS.

If DWS was installed as part of Equitrac, do not install the standalone DWS.
