If you want to set up your MFP to create a remote copy, i.e. to scan on the local MFP scanner but send the copy to print on another networked printer, follow the instructions below. Note: This function is only supported on Lexmark printers.
- Create a Scan to FTP shortcut using the MFP's web page. To do this, enter the following in the address bar of your web browser:
where <IPaddress.of.your.MFP> is the actual TCP/IP address assigned to your MFP device.
- Once inside the web page, answer YES to any prompts to install or trust content from Lexmark. The Java applet will run.
- Go to Configuration, Manage Destinations, Scan to FTP Destinations.
- In the page that appears, specify the IP address of the remote printer and the PS file type. Note: The "remote copy" function does not transfer functions or color tables tuned for the destination printer, so the copy quality MAY NOT be as good as that of a copy printed on the locally attached printer.
