You'll need to install the "Scanrouter lite" software which is becoming difficult to source, as it is no longer supported, and then the configuration is very difficult to impossible for someone not familiar with the configuration. Your only other option is to download the "network twain" driver from the Ricoh website. At this link:

    in follow up to my first post. I have pointed you to the RICOH website, as your machine was built by Ricoh (they own Gestetner), in case you aren't aware, and it converts to a Ricoh Aficio 1515MF

  • Anonymous Jun 12, 2009 can't "scan to folder" on this machine without "scanrouter Lite", as I said, and you CERTAINLY can't program destinations from the control panel even with it. It needs to be done via the software.
    And also, being an older machine, it won't scan to email on any account that uses Encryption -which is about 95% of services these days, and even if you could the setup is far more complex than you listed. such as inputting all the email account info (username/password,gateway, DNS, etc..etc.) ..please check your facts on this one.

I am trying to add users onto my gestetner all in one. I want to add user so they can have the ability to scan documents to their email account and remove the users that are no longer required. What is...

You can do it with the Web Image Monitor.
It is easier and faster.
Open the browser and type the IP address of the machine and login as:
user: admin
pw: (no password)
Go to address book and you will see the users there are created. You can add or remove depending on your needs.
Hope that helps.
See you

Scanner Delivery server fails on my Gestetner dsc232

First, it doesn't work on Vista, if you have upgraded you OS??

So, have all of the destinations disappeared off the display?, and "updating destination list has failed' message displays" (or something similar).
If this is the case........ have you tried going into the "Scanrouter V2 admin utility", and under the "server" button select "set I/O device", then select "remove". If you are asked to "retain settings" select "no". Then click "add", then "Browse", it should find the machine, select "ok" then name it whatever you want -it's for identification only
This helps when (for some reason) the machine has become disasscociated with the Ip address for lack of a better description -particularily if the software is not installed on a machine with a statc IP.
Do the destinations still appear but the scans do not reach their destination even though they appear to be sent?
This happens when the Windows login password has been changed, because Scanrouter is linked to the admin password.
The way to tell is if you click to open the "Scanrouter V2 admin Utility", and get a message pertaining to a "wrong password" or similar. - Enter the NEW windows login password
Has windows Firewall been enabled? TCP port #3670 needs to be opened

Please let me know if any of these solutions help, and Please rate me :)

The basic scanning method is to use the Twain driver, found in the printer driver disc.
Install it on your computer.
Put original on the exposure glass.
Open Word document, click insert, select from scanner or camera
and select your device scanner and click on insert.
Then you can save it and attach it to an email.
