Please find below a quick walk through of setting up scanning on an Olivetti colour MFD such as an MF250 though to the latest range of colour MFD’s. The screen may looking slightly different on the different ranges but the information required is the same.
You will need to login as an Administrator through the web terminal of the machine, this can be achieved by putting the IP address of the machine in the address bar of your web browser.
Next log out as a public user.
Then select log in as an administrator, the password is 12345678
Once you have logged in then go to Network, Email Setting, Email TX (SMTP)
Next enter your email server details, make sure to enter an email address for the machine to use. Enter any authentication details to allow it to connect to your email server, this might not be needed, if it won’t connect try turning this off.
You may also need to enter an email address for the Administrator before the machine will work as well. This can be done by going to the maintenance tab on the web interface (still in the admin screen) see below.
Once all this information has been entered then log out of the Admin screen, it is important to do this as the machine will be locked until you have logged out and the users won’t be able to use it.
Next set up some email addresses in your address book, you can do this from the web page as well but you don’t have to be logged in as the Admin. If you go to Store Address, New Registration
Select Email, OK
Fill in the details and select OK.
Once you have finished adding entries to the address book you can now go and test to see if it works.

Setting up scanning to a folder is quite a straight forward process on an Olivetti MF222Plus.
First thing you need to do is create a folder on your computer or server. Then share it, the easiest way to share a folder in windows is to right click on the folder then select properties.
Next select sharing and go to advanced sharing (1) then check the box to share the folder (2) you can change the share name if need be, next set the permissions of the folder you are sharing (3)
Set the folder permissions to specific people or set to everyone full control, this allows the machine to deliver the scanned doc in to the folder. If it isn’t shared then the machine can not scan back to the computer.
The next thing you will need to do is get the hostname of the computer you are scanning back to, this is quite straight forward to do, you can obtain it by first holding down the windows key on your keyboard then hitting the R on your keyboard.
This will bring up the run box, next type cmd and click ok to bring up the windows command prompt. Then type hostname in the command prompt window and press enter on your keyboard, you will then see the hostname of your computer. As you can see in the example below it is PC9.
Once we have the hostname and a folder set up the next step is to open up the web interface of the Olivetti MF222Plus. This is done by typing http://IPADDRESSOFTHEMACHINE (i.e. 192.168.1.150) in the address bar of your web browser.
(You can find out the IP address of your machine either from the port settings on your print driver or by printing out the configuration page at the machine in user settings.)
Next go to the Store Address tab of the MFD’s web page.
Then click on New Registration in the Address Book List.
Next fill in the fields like below,
1. The name that will be displayed on the machines display
2. Check the main box and the area of the address book that it will reside.
3. Check the box for the hostname.
4. Add the hostname (e.g. PC9) that you got from the command prompt, then the share name of the folder you set up, then a valid windows user name and password that has access to the computer you are scanning back to.
5. Then click OK to store the details.
You should get the message below if it has been set up on the machine.
You can set up more scan folders by clicking Continue Registration or just click return or close the web browser.
You should now be able to scan back to your PC or server, if it fails for any reason and you require assistance then contact Elmdale Maintenance on 0118 982 1445.
This process can be used on all Olivetti, Konica Minolta, Develop colour MFD’s such as Bizhub C224e, 284e, 364e, 454e, 554e or Olivetti MF282Plus, MF362Plus, MF452Plus, MF552Plus, MF652, MF752 or Develop Ineo+ 224e, Ineo+ 284e,Ineo+ 364e,Ineo+ 454e,Ineo+ 554e
Quick guide on setting up Account Track on an Olivetti colour MFD, this will apply to the MF222, MF282 range including the plus models upto the MF752 and can be applied to most of the older models as well.
Firstly you will need to turn on Account Track on your machine, this can be done via the machines web interface. You will need the IP address of the machine, this can be found by printing out the configuration page from the machine, this can printed out by pressing menu – utility – user settings – printer settings – print reports – configuration page, then the start key once it has lit up blue.
Once you have the IP address the you will need to type into the address line in your web browser of choice. Once the web page has loaded then please log out as a public user and then log in as an Administrator.
Once you’re logged in then go to the User Authentication/Account Track section.
Next turn on Account Track and set to Password Only then click OK.
Next click on Account Track Settings, New Registration to add a new user.
Next add the new user details and set their password, it can be numerical or alphanumeric a minimum of 2 characters. We usually recommend using a 4 digit numerical code as this is easy to enter on the screen of the MFD when logging in.
You can also set the permissions for each user and set a limit to how many prints they can do before the machine stops them from printing. If you choose not to edit the functions then the machine will just record how many copies and prints that each user has done.
Once you have finished setting up the new user you click register then you can set up more users in the same way.
Next you need to set up the print driver for the machine, there are 3 ways of doing this.
1. Having a pop up dialog box appear every time a user prints asking for their account track number.
2. Embedding the users ID code in to the driver on each persons computer in their default print preferences.
3. Print without authentication, where you tell the machine to bill all the jobs to the Public account.
I’ve uploaded a video showing you how to do this below:

I have noticed that sometimes when you try to add a 64bit additional driver on a windows 2003 server you get an error. It asks for a 64bit ntprint.inf file which most of the time isn’t available. You will get an error that looks something like this:
The best work around I have come up with is to first load the driver locally on a 64bit machine
Once you have loaded the driver locally then run the add printer wizard again and select “the printer that I want isn’t listed”.
Next browse the network for the printer installed on the server and add it to your 64bit client machine, it will load as the 64bit files have been loaded already.
The next part you will need to have Administrator privileges, which can be set from the driver on the server or you can input the password if you are asked for it.
Next go to the properties of the driver loaded from the server and then to sharing. Then click on load additional drivers.
Next check the box for 64bit driver and click on ok.
this will then load the 64bit driver files to the driver on the server. You can check this by logging on to the server and checking the additional drivers.
That’s it your done, hope you found this helpful.
