Kofax Front-Office Server Administrator’s Guide for HP MFPs

Kofax, Inc.


We also recommend that you set up a DNS server on the device so that the OXPd can resolve host

names. For more information, refer to the HP documentation.

Configuring Internet Information Services (IIS)

If you are using IIS 7, you need to increase the maximum allowed HTTP request size to allow large

documents to be transferred from the MFP. HP MFPs send an entire document in a single transfer.

The IIS 7 default of 30 MB is insufficient to support larger documents. To change this value,

increase the maxAllowedContentLength parameter as shown in the following procedure. You

must be logged on as a local administrator to set this value. For more information about setting

parameters, refer to the IIS documentation.

X To change the maxAllowedContentLength parameter


Open the Command Prompt window.


Change to the System32\inetsrv folder where Windows is installed.


Enter the following command:

appcmd set config -section:requestFiltering


Where size is the maximum request size in bytes up to 4294967295 bytes (1 byte under

4 GB).
For example, to set the maximum request size to 100 MB, enter the following command:

appcmd set config -section:requestFiltering
