Copying Files to a Folder for Printing (Hot Folder)

 
Files can be printed simply by copying them to a hot folder created in the shared folder of the Advanced Box. Print settings do not need to be specified from the printer driver because they can be specified for each folder.
When using a hot folder, it is necessary to change the following Advanced Box settings in advance. For details, see Setting Advanced Space to Public.
<Advanced Space>  <Open to Public>  <By SMB> or <By WebDAV>
<Advanced Space>  <Prohibit Writing from External>  <Off>
