How KPAX Works

KPAX-MANAGE-DIAGRAM
  • The ‘KPAX Manage’ (KM) system securely collects imaging device metrics sent from MFDs through the internet.
  • The ‘KPAX Discover Agent’ (KDA) must be remotely installed ideally on a server or in some circumstances a workstation, which captures metrics from the MFD(s).
  • This program gathers and securely sends these data to a central KM SaaS server. Transmitted data is only ever shared with DMC Canotec.
  • KPAX never collects users’ personal information.

Does KPAX require a server to work?

No.

It can be installed on any workstation that is on the majority of the time, however we would ideally install it on a server if possible.

How long does it take to install KPAX?

Installation usually less than 15 minutes to complete.

Please note that we will require administrative access to install the KPAX client onto your chosen workstation or server.

Does KPAX require any admin rights for installation?

Yes.

We will require administrative access to install the KPAX client onto your chosen workstation or server.

 

Can I install KPAX myself?

You can if you want.

Just email us and we will send you the KPAX agent and instructions on how to do this.

Will KPAX find my printers automatically or is there any input I need to do from my end?

KPAX can be set up in two ways.

  1. The first is to scan your network and find the devices itself.
  2. The second is we input a range of IP’s for it to scan and it will find any listed within that range.
I have other MFD’s not on contract with DMC Canotec. Will I have to do anything with these to stop them being set up on KPAX

No we will only set up MFD’s and Printers that we manage.

I have a MFD that is not connected to the network can KPAX report on this?

No.

For KPAX to work it needs to be able to see the device on the network.

I have multiple sites will KPAX need to be installed at each one?

This depends on your network setup.

If you have a centralised server we can set it up on there to see all the sites.
