    Share Printers.
    To share a printer,
    1. click Start and select Printers And Faxes.
    If this option is unavailable to you from the Start menu,
    2. click Start, select Control Panel, then double-click the Printers and Faxes icon.
    3. Right-click the printer you wish to share and select Properties.
    4. Click the Sharing tab. Select Share This Printer and enter Share Name.
    Keep the name short and easy to remember, such as RICOH 2045eSP.
    5. Click OK and the printer will be shared.

    To connect to a shared printer,
    1. click Start, select Printers And Faxes, and open the Add Printer Wizard.
    2. Click Next. In the Local Or Network Printer dialog box,
    3. select A Network Printer Or Printer Attached To Another Computer.
    If you know the computer name and printer name, select Connect To This Printer and type in the Name field the path to the printer, using this UNC format: \\ name>\.

    If you aren't sure of the exact path to the printer,
    1. select Browse For A Printer and click Next.
    2. Browse to the computer and printer to which you wish to print and click Next.
    If WinXP recognizes the printer and has the appropriate drivers, this is all you need to do. It will install the drivers automatically. If WinXP doesn't have the appropriate driver, it will inform you that "the server . . . does not have the correct driver . . ."
    3. Click OK and select the driver for the printer to which you are connecting. (You will probably need your printer's installation CD.)

    Once you've mapped to the printer (and installed drivers as necessary),
    4. click Next. When prompted,
    5. click Yes if you want to use the printer as your default printer,
    6click Next, and
    7. click Finish.

    let me know

Hello I'm in Brazil can not resolve error in my SC990 Ricoh Aficio 2045eSP. This error pops up after 10 copies or printing. Already exchanged cylinder, blade, developer and toner new. Please help me.

Why change the drum, blade, developer ????? You had problems with print quality?? I think it was just spending money ....
You have a network problem or machine firmware. To remove the doubts plug a laptop directly to the machine with a cable (Not necessary a croos cable). This may be a virus network or a broken swith.

Good luck

Using Scanrouter Professional on Windows XP SP2 or Vista

Scan Router Professional software will not operate on Windows Vista computers at this time.  It can install on Windows Server 2003.
There have been issues getting Scan Router software to work with Windows XP with Service Pack 2 or higher.  While you might be able to install the software but some features may not work.
The best solution for now to get around this is to install an ftp server on your computer or server. has a free one that you can use.  
Desktop Binder software will work with Windows XP Service Pack 2 as well as Vista.  Make sure that Windows Firewall is turned off before using it.  If your behind a router with a firewall on it, you shouldn't have it enabled.

Use the network scanner. It is easier for the users and is much better.
Open the browser writes the IP hosts is then just create new users with their own folder paths (previously shared of course).
If you do not have technical training i beliave it will not be easy for you to do it.
Try the chat and ask for help from a specialist. I'd like to help but still can not chat

Sometimes this problem occures when you install a later model wireless router.

Ricoh Aficio 1027 network connection problem with vista x86

It will not work to directly connect a network cable directly from the network port of the printer directly to your computer. You will have to use a cross-over cable and configure your TCP/IP settings manually. However, to utilize network printing and have internet access, you will want to get a router and connect your modem to the ethernet port of the router, then a network cable from pc to switch port on router, and a network cable from printer to a differnt switch port on router. Most consumer routers have a built in 4-port switch, so that should allow enough connections. You may want to consult a local IT company or Ricoh dealer for the rest of the setup. This will allow the framework for network printing and/or scanning.
