Activating a Managed Scanning Tool

Managed Scanning Tool devices are registered to the Management Program. Each Scanning Tool can synchronize device settings and download the latest updates from the Management Program. Each Scanning Tool device can also upload files to the Management Program.

  • Option 1: Simple Activation
    1. Install the Management Program.

    2. Plug-in the new Scanning Tool or any Scanning Tool that has not yet been activated to the same computer. The Scanning Tool should automatically activate and register to the Management Program.

  • Option 2: Alternative Activation Procedure
    1. Plug-in the new Scanning Tool or any Scanning Tool that has not yet been activated on a Management Program computer.

      Note:

      If there is a firewall between the Management Program and the Scanning Tool, accept and give permission to the C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\Portable Security 3\SfSrvCom.exe process to continue.

      The Scanning Tool Mode screen opens.

      Note:

      If the window does not open, your security software or computer may have blocked the autorun process. Open Windows Explorer and double-click Launcher.exe from the TMPS3 SYS partition to start the program.

    2. Select Management Program Control and click Next.

      The Management Program and Proxy Settings screen opens.
