  • Patent number: 8462364
    Abstract: An image processing apparatus which, when an error occurs during communication with a host computer, gives a higher priority to reconnection to the host computer connected at the time of occurrence of the error than to connection to another host computer. A CPU of the apparatus accepts processing requests from the host computers. When accepting a processing request from a host computer, the CPU causes the apparatus to connect to the host computer. If occurrence of an error is detected during communication with the host computer, the CPU controls the connection such that reconnection to the host computer connected at the time of occurrence of the error is given priority over connection to another host computer.

  • Publication number: 20100179965
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to an image processing apparatus which can change the access authority for a folder based on the restricted functions for each user, even if the user operates a folder which a restricted function is associated with. When an operation on a hot folder is received from a user, the present invention determines whether that user has an access authority for the hot folder. If it is determined that the user does have an access authority, it is further determined whether there are any functions which the operating user cannot use among the functions associated with the hot folder. If it is determined that there is/are function (s) which the user cannot use, the access authority for that hot folder is changed, and an error message to that effect is sent to the user.
