Configuring the Ricoh Printer
Only staff and faculty can print to the Ricoh.
The current model is a Ricoh MP C4504.
A note on Color Printing
The printer is capable of color printing however only for certain users. If you send a print job with color selected and you do not have access it will display as an authentication error.
The printer is deployed to FacStaff hosts in Active Directory using a GPO.
All a user will need to do is set their print code.
Browse to the printer
Select Printing Preferences
Select the Detailed Settings Tab
Select Job Setup
In there where the User Code is entered, enter the code and select apply
