In this case, make sure that your Canon Copier Imagerunner C587OU has CD software that comes with it. You need to connect the Canon copier to the computer with a USB cable or through the parallel port which the Canon Copier may not likely have. Then on your Pc and put the cd in the Cd drive of the Pc, when your Computer prompts "Found New Hard Ware" direct the computer to install the Canon copier through the Cd drive, after the Installation the Computer and the Canon copier can now be able to communicate thereby allowing you to scan from your Pc to the canon copier.

How do I Scan from a C2020?


In regards to scanning from a Canon ImageRunner to a Mac, this used to be done via SMB. But then Apple modernized the SMB protocol in Lion & Mountain Lion & Mavericks, and Canon decided to remain in the dark ages with their old-fashioned SMB protocol support. So therefore, Canon ImageRunners are now incompatible with Lion (OS X 10.7) & Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8) & Mavericks (OS X 10.9) & Yosemite (OS X 10.10) & El Capitan (OS X 10.11) for scanning via SMB.
The solution is that we now have to use the FTP protocol for scanning, when scanning from a Canon ImageRunner to a Mac running Lion (OS X 10.7) or Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8) or Mavericks (OS X 10.9) or Yosemite (OS X 10.10) or El Capitan (OS X 10.11).
To use the FTP protocol, you first need to enable it on your Mac by going into the Terminal and typing this command:
sudo -s launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ftp.plist
After enabling FTP via the Terminal, go into the Sharing system preference. Enable File Sharing in the left margin. Add the shared folder where you want the scans to end up. We usually like to create a folder on the Desktop entitled "Canon Scans", so you can just drag this folder into the list of folders. Click on the "Options" button to make sure that AFP is enabled, but you do NOT need to enable SMB.
Now you can go into the Network system preference where you will need to manually assign a static IP address for your machine. The Canon ImageRunner will need this static IP address so that it can find your Mac.
Once you've done all of the above, you can now create a new "one touch entry" on the Canon ImageRunner printer to scan to the shared folder on the Mac.
To do this, click on the physical button on the copier that says "Additional Functions", then press "Address Book Settings".
Then, on the Canon ImageRunner screen, press "One Touch Buttons".
On the next screen, press an existing name to edit it, or press a numbered button to edit a new name. (You can scroll through the pages with the arrows on the right.) You must press the "Register/Edit" button to add or edit that button.
If you're adding a new button, then on the next screen, you'll have to press "File".
Then you'll be taken to the next screen. The information to type in is the following:
Name: Give the button a name
One-touch Button Name: Give the button a short name that will fit on a button.
Protocol: FTP
Host Name: The static IP address that you assigned to the Mac. Do NOT use any special characters or slashes... just enter the IP address.
Folder Path: shared folder name. The trick to this is that you have to give the path from the starting point of the home folder. So if the shared folder is named "Canon Scans" and it sits on the desktop, then type in this file path: "Desktop/Canon Scans" (without the quotes).
User: the full account name of the account which owns the shared folder.
Password: the password for the account which owns the shared folder.
And that's it! You are now all set to scan from your Canon ImageRunner to your Mac!
I hope you enjoyed this article. If so, please donate a small amount via Paypal so that I can continue to post blog articles in the future.

I've connected my IR1023iF to the network. The printer and fax work fine but the scanner doesn't work at all.


If you've hooked up the copier via ethernet cable then it needs to be setup for scan to email, FTP or scan to folder (smb). This can be done through the copiers web interface which is accessed by typing the copiers IP Address into your web browser. If you've hooked the copier up via USB, then there is 'toolbar' software that you would use for scanning. If you need the software, let me know and I can post it on an FTP site. Just an fyi...I'm pretty sure that you can't hook up both ethernet and USB at the same time.

Canon ImageRunner Scan feature won't connect to network


its waiting for the command from the computer. in order to use scan you have to down load the canon scan tool from imagerunner.com / support/ downloads/ office products/ then canon network utilities. look for network scan gear tool ... down load save open run setup then open the program and you can either let it search for a scanner or you can put in the IP adress for the copier. then under your scanning software ( ADOBE PRO) eg. you selesct the scan gear tool as the scanner. to scan a doc you put paper in feeder select scan online then from your computer tell your software to scan good luck

Unable to set up scan feature.


First question is do you have universal send on the copier. If you have a Send tab on the touch screen you have it, if you only have a scan tab you do not.

With the send tab you can set the device up to scan, create a file and send it to a network destination. With the scan button you have to install the color network scan gear program on your computer.

http://downloads.canon.com/cpr/software/imagerunner/CNSG230.exe

This software is just a twain driver that interfaces with the copier through the network. It does not give you any software to drive the scanner, it only gives you a choice for the copier in your list of scanners. You have to use some other program (i.e. Acrobat standard or MS document imaging) to drive. After you install it open it up, let it discover the machine on the netowrk and close it. The interface only points to the device on the wore, it is not directly used for scanning.

If you have a send button I would recommend for your situation that you scan to a shared folder on your desktop. First you create the shared folder, and make sure you can see it from another PC on the network. If your other PC's can't see it the copier won't either. Create a user on the computer with the shared folder for the copier to use. Set that users password to never expire.
Press the additional functions hard button
Press the touch screen button for address book
Add an address to address book # 1
The type of address will be SMB
Register a name for the address (Scan to PC is fine)
there should be a browse button on the screen, press it
Use the up and down arrow to browse up and down the tree
when you see your network browse from the domain to the PC you are scanning to
When you try to expand the PC you will have to enter in the user and password you created for scanning
point to the shared folder you will use
OK your way back out to the user screens
Have fun scanning
