Thank you for using the Support Forum. The difference is whether you are using FTP vs SMB. Since you are using SMB the repository is a shared directory which you must have set up since your scan is working. If you have additional questions please consider contacting your support centre for further assistance.
I'm very new to Xerox network scanning and am hoping for a little clarification on the setup process.
I'm looking at setting up scanning for individual members of staff on a WorkCentre 7556.
At the moment there are 4 Templates set up under 'Scan' in Centreware Internet Services (which I'll call CIS if it's ok...).
Each is for a department and is scanning to a share on a machine on the same subnet using smb.
There are no file repositories set up under CIS Properties->Services->Workflow Scanning->File Repository Setup but the scanning works fine (except that the share host keeps shutting down).
Everywhere I look up scanning in the documentation / on the web it seems to always start off talking about setting up Workflow Scanning File Repositories.
What I'm wondering is, what essentially is the difference between these and the way it's been done previously by just setting up a Scan template using smb with server, share, and authentication credentials please?
