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.
