    Re: Scan to folder-setting up without a password

    Kyocera only used the scan file utility on the earlier versions. From the Falcon III series ( 2560, 3060, 3050..)and newer the scan file utility is not used also windows is no longer supporting the utility so it is getting more difficult to set up the Falcon II older

    I have always created a secondary account for the MFP. REASON--If the user is in a corporate environment and is required to change their password frequently, it won't affect the MFP login. Additionally, if it is a domain controlled user/password system, have the IT department create an account SPECIFICALLY for the MFP!...then it can login to drop the files as needed on whatever machine!...this would be an account for the MFP that doesn't change name or password--it won't expire!


    I've had a lot of "smarter than thou" IT managers who won't allow non-expiring passwords, even for service accounts.

    Just had a government office do that recently. The max length they could give us for the service account was one year. Not for scan to folder per se, but rather a fax server.

    I can almost guarantee they will be calling in a panic when their faxing stops.

    So, just when is this "old enough to know better" thing supposed to kick in?

    I wouldn't put up with that kind of sh!t!!!...If they cannot make a non-expiring password for the MFP scan to folder service account, they're SOL! IMO, I am not their IT admin and I don't get paid to do so!...if they have it in their thick heads that they "have to" change the password(s) for the service account(s), they sure as damn well better learn to do it on the MFP themselves!!!
