How Do I Set Up Scan-To-IP for the MT2090?



Scan to IP allows the MT2090 to instantly send bar code data over the wireless LAN to a host application such as Word, Excel or Notepad.



Before you use this article to set up Scan-to-IP, you will need to do the following:

  • Download and install Windows Mobile Device Center (Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8). For Windows XP computers, you should download and install Microsoft Active Sync for Windows XP.
  • These are both available from Microsoft's website. Please note that Windows Mobile Device Center (WMDC) and Microsoft ActiveSync are NOT Zebra software packages. For support on either of these applications, please contact MIcrosoft Support.

Connect the MT2090 scanner to an ActiveSync cradle (Model STB2000-C10007R single slot cradle with ActiveSync, NOT the STB2078).

If you do not have an STB2000 cradle:
Note:   Prior to connecting a USB cable to the device, ensure an appropriate tool is available to remove the cable from the device.
