One of the many features of Ricoh digital, multifunctional devices is network scanning. Once equipped with a print/scan board, Ricoh copiers will have the embedded software needed to use the device as a serverless network scanner. The scanning options include scanning to e-mail, a networked folder, a user's inbox or via FTP. Of these options, only FTP requires that an FTP server be configured. Once configured, there are only a few steps needed to choose FTP scanning on the Ricoh device.
