There are a few ways, such as configuring "SMB", "Scan to "Email" and/or installing "Scanrouter", but they are too involved to explain here.
The other is the "Network Twain Scanner" which, once installed, you can use a program such as "photoshop" , or many other photo editing softwares to scan. Simply open the program, click "file", "Import" and you should see the scanner as an option, make your settings, and go.
You can get the software here. Just select your operating system. It will need to be installed on each PC:

It is a problem with the network connection, if you are using scan router recheck the configuration settings in case of scan to email check connection with smtp server, port no. ssl on or off and do the connection test, check mail server authentication, rest assured it is not a problem with the machine or GW controller.

Error 36851: No response from scanner" ricoh

Dear kishorkamble,

We fixed this error, which happened in another model (Aficio MP-5500), by configuring two options:
1. Activating SNMP protocol. Menu Configuration -> Network -> IPv4
2. Activating RSH/RCP protocol. Menu Configuration -> Network -> SNMP

I hope it may be useful.

Yours sincerely,

Bruno Coutinho

I am having trouble scanning a document on the Ricoh Aficio 2018D, I also cannot locate the user manual, can you please advise how to scan on this machine?

If the scanner has not been configured, or network settings have changed, the setup for scanning on this unit is unfortunately quite difficult for a novice. the manuals are readily available at, under Downloads, but this will not help very much with the scanner config.

Problem in scanner when scan

Try adding the scanner's IP address in the scnhosts file in the TWAIN folder. Format is similar to the windows hosts file. You'll see a commented out sample entry, just modify that to suit your needs.

This may or may not work for you; we had it working under this configuration but then it stopped for no apparent reason. also note that scanrouter isn't supported under vista. Only advice I've been given so far is to revert to sending scans via SMTP - not ideal!
