To install Argos onBoard for Ricoh on a Java 10.x or newer device, HTTPS mode must be enabled. Follow these steps to enable HTTPS on a Ricoh device.
- Open a web browser and enter the device's IP address in the URL bar (example: HTTP://192.168.0.123)
- Log in as an admin (default username is admin, password is blank. Contact your Ricoh provider if you are unable to log in)
- Under the Security section, select Device Certificate.
- Check if there is a certificate already installed (likely "Certificate1"). If there is already a certificate installed (it will say "Installed" under certificate status) you can most likely skip the rest of these instructions.
- If there is not a certificate installed, then we'll create a self-signed certificate for the device.
- Select the radio button next to Certificate1 and press the create button.
- It works to leave all the certificate fields set to the defaults, or you can change any if you wish.
- After changing any designed fields press the OK button.
- Once the certificate has been created if you navigate to the Device Certificate section again you should see a status of "Installed" next to Certificate1:
- Now go back to the Configuration section, and open up SSL/TLS.
- Next to Certificate Status you should see "Installed".
- If you installed the certificate yourself, I also recommend changing Permit SSL/TLS communication to "Ciphertext/Cleartext" if needed. This is not required by Argos, but it means that the customer will be able to continue using HTTP to communicate with the device as they did before the certificate was installed. With Ciphertext Only they would be forced to only use HTTPS, and with Ciphertext Priority they would be automatically redirected to HTTPS when, e.g., accessing the device's web page.
The Argos OnBoard for Ricoh client can now be installed.
