BlindScanner Standard

BlindScanner Standard 4.6

Allows you to share a scanner with other users in a home or office network

Have you ever faced the situation of having to scan a document, and the scanner of your office is connected to another computer? You have to distract your colleague to ask him/her to scan the document for you.
Or at home, do you need to connect a scanner to each computer? Blind Scanner is the solution. You can scan your local network connection with a scanner connected to one computer.
With this light application, you can connect to the scanner server. The application will share the scanner in your local network connection, so everyone connected to it will be able to scan any document or photo and save it on each computer's hard disk in a wide range of formats available with resolutions from 75 to 4800 ppi.
You can scan multiple page documents and save them to a PDF or tiff file. The application also supports scanners with Automatic Document Feeders (ADF) and works with any flatbed TWAIN scanner.
With the auto feeder option, you can scan multiple page documents without being there to wait for the process. Also, you can set the program to scan both sides and ignore the blank pages.
The program allows you to save your own presets with all your configurations to use them in your everyday work without having to configure it all again.
Blind Scanner uses a 8900 port to connect to the server. Be sure that no other program runs on this port, and that it is not blocked by firewalls.
The interface is very simple and easy to understand, because it is well designed by blocks, according to the specific tasks, such as connections, presets, multi page scan, formats, resolutions and destination.
