Devices - General tab

Use this tab to view and edit device information or to add a device manually to Kofax Front Office Server.

Type the device IP address and click Discover to retrieve information about the device from the network. If the system can discover the device on the network, the system automatically populates the fields with the device information as it is added to Kofax Front Office Server. If some of the information cannot be retrieved, or if the device cannot be discovered on the network, enter the information in the fields. All fields are required except for Description. When the device information is complete, click Save to add the device to Kofax Front Office Server.

Tip Device discovery relies on Apple's Bonjour service. Bonjour uses UDP messaging, so if you experience problems with device discovery, make sure that UDP is enabled on your network.
