TECH TIP: How to Setup & Print to a Ricoh “Follow You” Printer


Hello, my name is Damian Burgos and today
I’m going to show you how to setup and print to a Ricoh “FollowYou” printer. We’ll begin by first adding the printer
to your Mac. Open System Preferences.
Click the Printers & Scanners category. Click + to add a printer and choose the IP
tab. The IP address is going to be 192.168.244.150.
The protocol is going to stay the same. The queue is going to be FollowYouBW.
The name is also going to be FollowYouBW. The location is based on your school. In this
case we are in the Bolling building. And press add.
I’m now going to show you how to add the FollowYou Color printer.
Click the plus, add printers or scanner. IP is also going to be 192.168.244.150
The protocol is going to stay the same. The queue is going to be FollowYouColor.
The name is also going to be FollowYouColor. The location is based on your school. Then
press add. And you are all set! You added the FollowYou
printers to your computer. Go to any Ricoh printer in the building with
your BPS ID card. On the home screen of the printer, tap the
PCC icon . You will see a login screen; tap your BPS
ID card on the card reader. The printer will ask you to login the first
time; tap the ID field and password fields to enter your BPS ID. (note: the save button
is on the upper right of the screen as you enter your ID) Now I’m going to show you how to print and
scan. Choose the FollowYouBW or FollowYouColor printer
from your computer any time you need to print. It doesn’t matter which printer you’re
going to; all of the printers in the building will work using the FollowYou printing.
Walk up to any Ricoh printer in the building and select the PCC icon. You will see a login
screen; tap your BPS ID card on the card reader. Select Release All to print everything or
FollowYou to select individual jobs. To scan, push the “Scan to Me” button,
place your document on the tray, and push “Scan” on the screen. The document will
be scanned and emailed to you immediately. I’m now going to show you how to add the
printer on a windows device. Click the Start button on the bottom left
and enter \bollingprint into the search box click Enter.
A window will open with two icons; right click on the FollowYouBW icon and select “Connect”.
A box will popup and install the printer automatically. Repeat step 2 for the FollowYouColor
Close this box when both printers are installed. Click the Start button again and go into Devices
and Printers. We recommend that you right-click on one of the new FollowYou printers and click
Set as Default. Thank you so much for watching. If you have
any trouble please call the service desk at 617-635-9200
