The Management Program Control mode registers the Scanning Tool to the Management Program, which manages all the registered Scanning Tools. All the Scanning Tool devices can get the updates and scan settings from the Management Program and you can also upload all the logs from each device.
In this mode, there are two ways you can connect the Scanning Tool, by connecting the Scanning Tool directly to the Management Program computer or by connecting the Scanning Tool to a computer with Internet connection, and then remotely connecting to the Management Program computer.
You can plug in the Scanning Tool device directly to the Management Program computer to get the updates, settings, or to transfer logs.
This setting is applicable for environments wherein all the computers are in one location and the Management Program computer is accessible. Here are some sample scenarios.
You can plug in the device from any computer with an Internet connection and then connect to the Management Program online to get the updates, settings, or to transfer logs.
There might be communication issues if a firewall is between Management Program and the Scanning Tool. If this is the case, accept and give permission to the C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\Portable Security 3\SfSrvCom.exe process.
This setting is applicable if you have several locations. In each location, you can have just one computer with an Internet or network connection and use that to regularly connect to the Management Program. Here are some sample scenarios.
