How To Setup The EPPS Network Printers on a Personal Computer (Windows 10)

The EPPS network copiers can be set up on a personal computer, these instructions assume Windows 10, and you must be on the UTD network.

If you use MacOS, instructions are here.

Download Drivers

First you must download the drivers for the printer. Here is a direct link to the PCL6 driver for Windows 10:

http://support.ricoh.com/bb/pub_e/dr_ut_e/0001302/0001302256/V1200/z79059L16.exe

Save the file (your browser will usually place it in your Downloads folder).

In case you need to download a different driver, you can go to the following link and then search for the model number (MP 7503):

https://www.ricoh-usa.com/en/support-and-download

From there you can download whichever driver you need.

Extract the Drivers

Now we need to extract the drivers. First open your file explorer:

Then go to where you downloaded the file (this assumes your Downloads folder):

Double-click on the z79059L16.exe file and in the window that opens, press Unzip:

You should get a confirmation that it’s successful; click OK, and then click Close:

Take note of where the files are extracted to, by default:

c:\temp\z79059L16

Add the Printer

Open the Control Panel by clicking on the Start menu (Windows icon/logo menu in lower left corner) and type “control panel” to search (no need to click on anything, just start typing and then click on the match it finds at the top):

Depending on which Control Panel view you are in, click View devices and printers under Hardware and Sound, or just go straight to Devices and Printers:

Once you are at Devices and Printers, click on Add a printer:

Next click The printer that I want isn’t listed:

Next choose Add a local printer or network printer with manual settings:

Choose Create a new port and select Standard TCP/IP Port:

Type in the Hostname or IP address, the Port name will be automatically filled in. Uncheck the box that says Query the printer and automatically select the driver to use and then click Next:

NOTE – Use the IP address below that corresponds with the printer that you want to install (only copy the numbers in bold, see the example in the screenshot above):

  • 10.152.42.25 – GR3.706
  • 10.152.40.29 – GR2.818 (right)
  • 10.152.40.30 – GR2.818 (left)

On the next screen choose Have Disk…:

Now you need to browse to where you extracted the drivers:

If you used the default location, simply copy/paste the following in to the box at the bottom and press OK:

c:\temp\z79059L16\disk1\

If you extracted the drivers somewhere else, you’ll need to click Browse and find the file “z79059L16\disk1\oemsetup”:

Next choose Ricoh from the list on the left, and RICOH MP 7503 PCL 6 from the list on the right, and click Next:

Give the printer a description/name:

Choose Do not share this printer and click Next:

Do not try to print a test page yet (it won’t work); click Finish:

Set Printing Preferences

Right-click on the printer you just installed and choose Printing Preferences:

For the GR3.706 and GR2.818 (right) printers, set your User Code by going to the Detailed Settings tab, choose Job Setup from the menu, and enter your User Code (should be 4 or 6 digits) and then press Apply/OK:

For the GR2.818 (left) printer, do not set a User Code, instead you must select the Locked Print function from the Job Type menu and then click Details:

Now enter your User ID (6-digits) and Password (4-digits) and then press OK:

Then press Apply/OK to exit the Printing Preferences.
