  1. Can you tell me where to put IP Address means in which files. we have installed Alfresco Lab 3.2 on redhat linux.


  2. Thanks for passing by, you need to open the project with VS 2008 with C# and modify the web service references of the project to read your alfresco installation and make sure before that to check that you can connect to the Alfresco web services

  3. thanks for your reply.

    i have tried it by configuring it on localhost.

    Can we access site’s Document library using this ? if yes can you guide me how ?? i need to put scanned document in to site’s document library.

  4. yes you can, the idea is to scan and save the scanned document to your document library.
    If you don’t wanna wait till I release the documentation, I will give you quick guide,
    Once you run the application you will be asked to enter your Alfresco user name and password, once you logged in.. select your source (i.e. scanner) select file format, then if u wanna scan directly or using TWAIN UI, and there should a be a tree (your document library should be mapped to it) select a folder then click scan.. that’s all

  5. hi,
    thnkas for reply. same thing i have done but it is not showing the document library in the tree. IN tree not sites & it spaces are mapped i want sites to be mapped and under site it will show the document library.

  6. Rami, I got your Capturesco 2.0 source, but when I tried run it, I can’t add reference to AccessControlWebService. I don’t know if is the WSDL file that I am using that is different, because all the others are working. So, I’d like to know if did you tried your software in the last version of Alfresco (3.2r) ? If yes, is there any file to replace or modify ? Tks

    (invalid login/password)

  9. I don’t know what is wrong with your installation, did you tries to login to Alfresco using the regular Alfresco login page? Because it should be working without any trouble.

  10. Hi,
    Thanks for your last reply…

    Everything is working fine since I registered the WIA dll 🙂

    Anyway, when recompiling the solution after changing host server’s IP address, I meet this issue on Alfresco.WebServiceFactory every time addSecurityHeader() is called :

    Error ‘Alfresco.WebServiceFactory.addSecurityHeader(Microsoft.Web.Services3.WebServicesClientProtocol)’ not valid arguments

    Any Idea ?
