Embed on a Sharp MFD

Is there any documentation about installing an embed on to a Sharp device?

I found this article that says brands other than the listed devices requires a manual installation, but I can't seem to find any installation files. 


I've created a client with the IP address of the device, but how do I get it to show on the device itself. There are also workflows that show up on the simulator too. 


ScanShare version 5.21.02

Sharp MX-511N


Any help that points me in the right direction is greatly appreciated.

Hi Mic,


more than welcome as always and no worry for all.

No, the services error above are not related to your error Sharp client error ... maybe the services error are related after a restart of the application so they will be back active automatically.


Your error for sure is due to the connection with FTP because the Sharp client for sending the scanned document using a FTP channel and the message "Selected Servers not found" is generated internally when it failed to establish the connection to FTP server. 

Please check this Server Address into Sharp Settings:


...and please check the ports:

  • 8280 = Sharp Web Client
  • 8290 = Sharp WCF Communication Service Host
  • 8291 = Sharp FTP file transfer


Best regards,

Hi Luigi, 

Thanks for your guidance. Sorry about the delay in getting back, we had to put this on the back burner due to some other urgent work. Only got back into this today.

We tried your instructions and was able to get the Sharp embed working. The workflows all show up on the device and we are able to use them, but we are getting an error. The scans are not getting from the MFD to the ScanShare server.

When we press the scan button, it creates a temp folder in the server.


But they are all empty.

In the device, it shows the following message.
