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.
