|Associated MFP Addresses||Add the MFP devices that will be associated to this group by entering the IP Address
or host name of the MFP in the MFP
Address list. This list must contain at least one MFP device.

name. To enable this feature, select the Use an LDAP Search to retrieve additional user information check box.
Click the Configure button to open the LDAP Lookup Settings dialog box to configure
settings for the LDAP server.
