OKI MC561 Multifunction Printer help
I have just purchased the above but the installation has been far more complex than I expected.
Installed from CD using USB connection. There was one error that seemed to come from Windows 7 Pro rather than the install program which stated that PCL had not been installed successfully. Not sure if this is significant?
All other software and utilities on the CD installed OK except for TWAIN instalation but all the references in this seemed to apply to connection over a network rather than local printer via USB.
I have printed successfully from the computer.
Now I want to learn about scanning using the Automatic Document Feeder (Duplex). I initialy want to experiment and scan a multipage document to a multipage pdf file.
The program that came on the CD that would seem to be the one to use is called "Actkey"
When I start this up there are 4 options "Application 1" "Application 2" "Folder" "PC Fax".
I select "Folder" but then get a message "Please check that the device is set to remote PC mode" and can't get any further. What does this mean?
With the information I have provided of my journey so far with this MFP can anyone kindly help. I'm not sure if either of the two problems I had during install are relevant or not but most importantly I want to be able to scan.

OK - Decided to restore my system prior to before I attempted to install the MFP. This time no error messages about PCL during install and everything seemed to go smoothly. I have not attempted the "Install Scanner Twain Driver" as this initially asks for an IP address which unless my basic knowledge is correct has no relevance to a printer which is connected locally by USB.
If I am wrong please let me know.
Now I want to be able to scan multiple pages to a multi page pdf file. There is a utility that comes with the MFP called "ActKey". When I select the folder option for scanning too I get the message
"Please check that the device is set to remote PC mode".
I have looked through all the settings on the MFP and can't find any option like this so now I am stuck.

I think I have found part of the answer. By searching through the menu options on the MFP I have found the entry which sets it to remote PC mode. I would have thought this would have basically been an on/off type operation but it does not seem as simple as that. From what I can discover so far you have to actually leave the MFP with that menu item selected so the LCD display on the MFP states something to the effect of "Waiting for scan from remote PC"
Surely this is something that should be set by the software on the computer rather than having to manually set the MFP into this mode before using the application on the computer?
I'm very confused ! !
