Scanning for Printers

To add printers in Ricoh Supervisor Data Collector, you can scan the network for devices. The network scan is performed through SNMP v1/v2.
To start the automatic printer search:
  1. Click the Scan for Printers button from the Add Printer... menu, on the top-right corner of the Printers page. The Scan for Printers button is disabled when the data collector is offline or there are no more slots available.
  2. The system displays the selected printers in the Printers page. To edit printer properties, right-click a printer and select Properties from the menu.
    Important:
  • Ricoh Supervisor Data Collector can use the Scan for Printers function only if you enable the SNMP v1/v2 protocol on the physical printer and then the SNMP v1/v2 plug-in in Ricoh Supervisor Data Collector. To enable the SNMP v1/v2 protocol on the physical printer, refer to the printer documentation.
  • For information on managing account and user settings, see the RICOH Account Administration documentation.
