The update unit updates the group information such that the candidate image forming apparatus found by the search unit is included in the group. The transmitting unit transmits the group information updated by the update unit to the different image forming apparatus at the predetermined timing.
Abstract: A system includes a transmission apparatus that transmits data, and an output apparatus that outputs the received data. Output of the data is restricted if the output apparatus does not satisfy a predetermined security requirement. If a time period for outputting the data is specified, a confirmation is made with a recipient as to whether to permit removal of the restriction within the time period, and a response thereto is obtained. The output apparatus outputs the data if the response obtained from the recipient indicates removal of the restriction.
