Due to newer MFP products having limited FTP support for UCF keys and licenses, cURL* may serve as an alternative method for importing these file types.
*cURL is a third-party solution that automates HTTP post traffic.

Fleet or device replacement situations that may require the transfer of an app license or list of shortcuts
What you will Need:
The files that you are trying to import into the device.
The cURL application (.exe) from
Lexmark does not directly support this application since cURL is not a Lexmark application.
Importing shortcuts (Example without security):
Export the shortcuts from the parent-device using this cURL command.
curl.exe http://IP_address/cgi-bin/exportfile/config/shortcuts/shortcuts.ucf >10.10.10.10-shortcutsby-CURL.ucf
Import the shortcuts.ucf file into additional devices using this cURL command.
curl -F email@example.com://IP_Address/cgi-bin/dynamic/printer/config/secure/import_destinations.html (all one line)
IP_address and .ucf values are replaced by your device's TCP/IP addresses and your .ucf filename.
Commands in summary
curl.exe http://10.10.10.10/cgi-bin/exportfile/config/shortcuts/shortcuts.ucf > shortcutsfilname.ucf
curl.exe -F firstname.lastname@example.org://10.10.10.10/cgi-bin/dynamic/printer/config/secure/importsettings.html
Uploading a license file (Specific to identified models in top table):
Two methods are provided for uploading licenses to http://<IP_address>/webservices/vcc/licenses.
Obtain the license (.lic) file.
Copy the .lic file to the same directory as cURL.exe.
Open cmd and navigate (cd, cd...) to the directory of the .exe and .lic files.
Type the cURL command: curl --data-binary @"LES-SolnCompAgent-unlocked-LEX.lic" http://IP_address/webservices/vcc/licenses
You may need to run cmd as administrator. IP_address and .lic values are replaced by your device's TCP/IP address and your license filename.
Batch file method:
Extract the .zip to a destination folder.
Open the folder to see curl.exe, license file (.lic) and Upload Lic curl.bat files.
Launch Upload Lic curl.bat and input the
of the target device when prompted to do so, and then hit Enter. Wait for confirmation.
Modifying the batch file
Open the batch file and modify the
required for further deployments.
