About adding a Scanner through the Control Center

If you configure your appliance as a Control Center and Scanner, you set up the Scanner during the initial appliance setup. If the Scanner is separate from the Control Center or you want to add a Scanner at any time after installation, do so through the Control Center.

See Installing the Symantec Brightmail Gateway product.

Table: How to add a Scanner lists the steps to add a Scanner through the Control Center.
