The best solution I use is Smart Net Monitor, which is supplied with the Ricoh disks or can be downloaded from www.ricoh-usa.com
. First you need to install the lan fax driver, after that then install Smartnet Monitor.
From there click start, and then control panel, then printers and faxes, then right click on the Ricoh LAN fax driver, from there click properties, click ports, then click add a port, under available ports you will see smartnet port (highlite) and then select new port, a new box will come up and then select search, the software will then make the connection and add the port. Besure to click ok and apply and then you are connected
