Our office has a Konica Bizhub C452 copier which has high resolution scanning.

Unfortunately, it is impossible to use the high-resolution scanning because it sends the file via email and our email server blocks transfers over a certain limit, which any high resolution document scan will usually exceed.

Is there any other way to get the data off the copier and to a computer?

(Note that this model of Bizhub does not have a USB port.)

  • Configure a local smtp server, and receive the emails locally as large as you want. – Ipor Sircer Nov 15 '16 at 18:50
  • @IporSircer I need to sell this to IT, and my guess is that they will not want to install an entire SMTP server just to service the copier. – Tyler Durden Nov 15 '16 at 18:51
  • install smtp is a oneliner command. Installing a correct driver for mouse is a more difficult operation. Can't you configure the scanner to store the files locally and don't try to sent it? – Ipor Sircer Nov 15 '16 at 18:57

According to the bizhub C452 specifications, this printer has alternative methods for transmitting scans.

Scan-to-SMB : Scan to a folder on a networked computer.
Scan-to-FTP : Scan to an FTP server.

Multiple scan setups can be registered and named for multiple users.

See for example this youtube tutorial how to set it up : Add Scan to Shared Folder (SMB).

  • Thanks for the idea. One hitch I ran into was that the copier was asking for username and password. The folder I wanted to sent to is a public share. When I tried leaving uname/pw blank it gave a "logon" error. Why do I need to give the copier my credentials if the folder is a public share? – Tyler Durden Nov 15 '16 at 19:56
