Cannot connect to server. There is a network problem, or the disk on the server is full.


The Ricoh MFP Client attempts to connect to the KFS server via HTTPS (which is the default behavior), but IIS and KFS on the KFS server are configured to accept only HTTP communications.

  5. Click Save.

  6. Deploy, install, or register the Ricoh MFP Client to the desired Ricoh MFP device using the instructions in the Kofax Front Office Server Administrator's Guide for Ricoh MFPs.
