Job copied to a hot folder does not print

If you copied a job to a hot folder and it does not print, the physical printer might not be able to receive jobs. Check to see if an AFP printer device represents the same physical printer.
If so, check these settings for the AFP physical printer:
  1. Make sure that the Share printer connection property is set to Yes.
    If the value is No (the default), the printer driver component of RICOH ProcessDirector never releases control of the printer to the hot folder.
  2. Make sure that the IPDS printer connection timer property is less than the Inactivity timer property. If the IPDS printer connection timer property is greater than the Inactivity timer property, RICOH ProcessDirector drops the connection before it can share the printer.
