  • Publication number: 20200036864
    Abstract: A terminal includes a relay unit, a memory, and an access unit. The relay unit relays communication between a different terminal and a server that requires two-step authentication at a time of providing a service. The memory stores first identification information for identifying the different terminal. The access unit accesses the server. In a case where data to be transmitted to the server includes second identification information for identifying the terminal, the access unit transmits the first identification information, in place of the second identification information included in the data, to the server.

  • Patent number: 9647870
    Abstract: A relay apparatus includes a storage, and request data reception and transmission units, first and second conversion units, and content identifier reception and transmission units. For each storage service, the storage stores a service identifier, access destination information, and a conversion routine for converting a content identifier and a specified condition for specifying content between a server format and a client apparatus format. The request data reception unit receives a service identifier and a specified condition from a client apparatus. The first conversion unit converts the specified condition into a server format. The request data transmission unit transmits the resulting specified condition according to the access destination information. The content identifier reception unit receives a content identifier from a server. The second conversion unit converts the received content identifier into the client apparatus format.

  • Patent number: 9473557
    Abstract: A server device includes a first accepting unit, a converting unit, a notifying unit, and a providing unit. The first accepting unit accepts a specification from a specifying device that specifies first content. In a case where a data format of the first content indicated by the specification is not a certain data format in which data is capable of being output by an output device, the converting unit converts the data format of the first content to the certain data format, thereby generating second content having the certain data format, and stores the second content. The notifying unit notifies the specifying device of a storage site of the second content. In a case where the output device requests to get content from the storage site of the second content by using information acquired from the specifying device, the providing unit provides the second content to the output device.

  • Patent number: 9148492
    Abstract: A relay device includes a communication unit, a first conversion unit, a second conversion unit, and a controller. The communication unit communicates with a client device and a service providing device. The first conversion unit performs a first conversion process for performing conversion between a language interpretable by each client device and a language interpretable by the relay device. The second conversion unit performs a second conversion process for performing conversion between a language interpretable by each service providing device and the language interpretable by the relay device. The controller performs control so that data sent from the client device is subjected to the first conversion process and then the second conversion process before transmitted to the service providing device and data sent from the service providing device is subjected to the second conversion process and then the first conversion process before transmitted to the client device.

  • Publication number: 20040194011
    Abstract: A cooperative processing apparatus judges that an error has occurred in an image processing apparatus if receiving a processing result indicating occurrence of an error from the image processing apparatus or receiving no processing result from the image processing apparatus in a prescribed time after requesting the image processing apparatus to execute a second service process. The cooperative processing apparatus generates new instruction data by removing execution-completed services from <exec> and attaching, as <log>, instruction data that was effective at the occurrence of the error.
