Airprint to Ricoh Afico MP

Is it possible to Airprint to a Ricoh Afico MP? Or does the printer need to be airprint enabled?

In the past I've used a utility running on a windows pc to print to an HP printer, and that was working at the time.

All machines on the network are Windows based PC's.

Tried that, the Airprint Activator download is not a valid download.
i would have thought if you tried by IP it would have worked
do you have static IPs for all the PCs?
Do you have the right ricoh drivers for the mac?

PC's are all static.

I don't believe you can load the Mac drivers on a Windows pc.

What do you mean by, tried by IP?



if you share the printer on a PC then i assume that you can type the PC ip address and then a window with all the shared resources on that pc (folders, music printers) should come up and then you can try to pick the printer up that way.

Maybe I wasn't clear about this, I am trying to use the Airprint feature in iPad's and iPhone's.

If you are using the iPhone app, "Print," and it worked for you in the past but isn't working now, it's not your printer: it's because IOS5 broke the app.  We're all waiting for an updated version that works.

I just stumbled upon this software which does the trick very nicely :

It's $10 and works like a charm.
