Setting up print to Custom Boxes

Setting up print to Custom Boxes


There are two parts to settings up the custom boxes. Part One is done from the workstation that the printer is deployed from and Part Two is done from the web interface of the copier.

Part One: Setting up the print driver

1. Open the ‘Control Panel’

(You can open the search bar or start menu of Windows 10 and type ‘Control Panel’ to bring it up)

2. Press ‘View Devices and Printers’

(If you can’t find it, sort by category and your screen will look identical to this)

3. Right-click printer and select ‘Printer Properties’

4. Press the ‘Device Settings’ tab

5. Double click ‘Hard Disk’

(You may have to scroll down in order to see Hard Disk listed)

6. Press ‘Add’ and fill out custom box settings

(Exact capitalization, spelling, and order of the custom boxes will need to be remembered for later. You will want to make sure the shared box is checked. No user name or password is required unless desired. Press ‘OK’ when finished.)

7. Press the ‘Advanced’ tab

8. Check ‘Print Directly to Printer’ then press the ‘Printing Defualts’ button.

9. Press the ‘Job’ tab

10. Check the ‘Job Storage (e-MPS)’ box and select ‘Custom Box’ from the drop down menu

(Press ‘OK’ when finished to close the print driver and save the changes.)

11. Press ‘OK’ to save and close ‘Printer Properties’

Part Two: Machine’s Web Interface

1. Type your machine’s IP address into the URL bar of a web-browser

(If you do not know your machine’s IP address, see our guide here: How to find your IP address)

2. You will receive a certificate error. Press ‘Show Advanced’ and then ‘*Proceed to *Your IP address*’

(This example is from Google Chrome. If using another web browser, your certificate error will look slightly different. Just make sure to proceed to the site.)

4. Highlight ‘Document Box’ and click on ‘Custom Box’

5. Press ‘Add’

6. Fill out the necessary settings and press ‘Submit’ when finished

(Exact capitalization, spelling, and order of the custom boxes will need to be matched to what was filed out earlier in Part One, Step Six.)

7. Repeat step 6 until add custom boxes are added.

You’re finished!
