Issue

How to set the Kofax Ricoh MFP Client to scan in Duplex mode by default

 

Cause

The Ricoh Smart Operation Panel (Android) SDK and the Ricoh SDK/Java utilize a file with the .dalp extension to define many aspects of third-party clients, including default scan settings when using the client.  These settings override the device's own default scan settings.

 

Solution

The default Sides setting can be set by editing the .dalp file for the Kofax Ricoh MFP Client:

 

To set the default to Duplex in the Kofax Ricoh Smart Operation Panel (Android) Client:

  1. Navigate to the KTA Designer's or KFS Administration Console's Devices screen
     
  2. Click Download
     
  3. Select Ricoh in the Manufacturer field and click the checkmark icon to download the Ricoh Clients.
     
  4. Unzip the downloaded ricoh.zip package
     
  5. Unzip the ricoh-smart-operation-panel.zip package
     
  6. Open KofaxRicohAndroid.dalp in a text editor such as Notepad
     
  7. Locate the default_side argument
    <!-- #OPTIONAL# set default side, one of ONE_SIDE|TOP_TO_TOP|TOP_TO_BOTTOM-->
    <argument>-default_side ONE_SIDE</argument>
    

     
  8. Set the default_side argument value to TOP_TO_TOP
    <!-- #OPTIONAL# set default side, one of ONE_SIDE|TOP_TO_TOP|TOP_TO_BOTTOM-->
    <argument>-default_side TOP_TO_TOP</argument>
    

     
  9. Save the change to KofaxRicohAndroid.dalp
     
  10. Select KofaxRicohAndroid.apk and KofaxRicohAndroid.dalp and zip them into a package called ricoh-smart-operation-panel.zip 
     
  11. Unzip the RegisterAndroidRicohClient.zip package and use the KofaxRicohAndroidRegistration.exe to install the newly edited ricoh-smart-operation-panel.zip package to the MFP device.

 

To set the default to Duplex in the Kofax Ricoh SDK/Java Client:

  1. Navigate to the KTA Designer's or KFS Administration Console's Devices screen
     
  2. Click Download
     
  3. Select Ricoh in the Manufacturer field and click the checkmark icon to download the Ricoh Clients.
     
  4. Unzip the downloaded ricoh.zip package
     
  5. Unzip the KofaxRicohClient.zip package
     
  6. Open KofaxRicohClient.dalp in a text editor such as Notepad
     
  7. Locate the following lines:
    <!-- #OPTIONAL# Document sides: ONE_SIDED, DUPLEX, TUMBLE, default is ONE_SIDED-->
    <argument>-sd ONE_SIDED</argument>

     
  8. Set the argument sd value to DUPLEX
    <!-- #OPTIONAL# Document sides: ONE_SIDED, DUPLEX, TUMBLE, default is ONE_SIDED-->
    <argument>-sd DUPLEX</argument>

     
  9. Save the change to KofaxRicohClient.dalp
     
  10. Select all the files in the unzipped KofaxRicohClient folder and zip them into a package called KofaxRicohClient.zip
     
  11. Use the Ricoh MFP device's web interface to install the newly edited KofaxRicohClient.zip
