Ricoh - Configuring a Ricoh MFP to Scan to a Network Folder at UW-Green Bay

This document details how to set up a Ricoh MFP to scan to a network file at UW-Green Bay.


***NOTE: These directions apply to only the MFP environment at UW Green Bay.***


1. Have the System Admins create a scanning share under the department share folder user will be queuename@uwgb.edu. Share will be fpsa.uwgb.edu\queuename_scans$.

***NOTE: User will have modify rights to that folder along with department group account.***

2. On the Ricoh, navigate to the address book.

***NOTE: Must login as admin to see the address book.***

3. Add an address book entry with both the name and key display of “Scan to Folder.”

6. Test the scan to folder settings from the Ricoh. Users will see a Scan to folder tab when then hit the scanner button on the device. 


The following devices are set to scan to folder:

CIRIC183 \\fpsa.uwgb.edu\CLRIC183_scans$ Ricoh MPC 2051 143.200.132.183
PPRIB216 \\fpsa.uwgb.edu\fac_scan$  Ricoh MP 2553  143.200.132.216
DIRIC220 \\fpsa.uwgb.edu\essscans$ Ricoh MPC 2051 143.200.132.220
HRRIC221 \\fpsa,uwgb.edu\HRRIC221_scans$ Ricoh MPC 4503 143.200.132.221
SERIC225  \\fpsb.uwgb.edu\SERI41_Scans$  Ricoh MPC 4503 143.200.132.225
OURIC201 \\fpsa.uwgb.edu\OURIC201_Scans   Ricoh MP C4504ex 143.200.132.201



Passwords for queuename@uwgb.edu will be set through PAM with a character set greater than 18, resulting in a requirement to reset these in the Ricoh devices every 3 years.
