Application server

If your workflows require processing by applications that run on Windows, you can access those applications by installing an application server on a Windows computer.

Application servers work with primary computers running AIX or Linux. They do not work with primary computers running Windows.

Application servers share the database that the primary server uses and work with the primary server to process jobs effectively. Because application servers are installed on Windows computers, they can run steps that require applications on Windows. They cannot run other steps, such as PrintJobs.

Application servers can be the parent servers for Ricoh PDF printers, Custom PDF printers, and Passthrough printers. They cannot be the parent servers for other kinds of printers.

You can install application servers on these operating systems:

  • Windows 10 Pro or Enterprise 64-bit
  • Windows 11 Pro
  • Windows Server 2019 64-bit
  • Windows Server 2022 64-bit
