Network Scanning: Configure scans folder to StoutFS (M: drive)

Setting up scans folder to StoutFS - M: drive

This scanning method requires that the end user has purchased access to StoutFS (M: drive).  Please refer to link below, StoutFS explained, for rates.

To setup scans to M: drive:

  1. Verify your access to M: drive
  2. Create a folder called "scans" on your M: drive
  3. Obtain printer name and/or location (devices should have a sticker that identifies them)
  4. Submit a help desk ticket or self-service ticket request scan to M: drive and the name of printer or it's location

*Apple user refer link below for mapping drive to connect network share for scans folder


  •  StoutFS Drive mappings are automatically mapped on campus Domain computers that are logged with UW-Stout credentials. The UW-Stout user must have access to StoutFS system (Departments pay for access for users).  Reboot computer if not connecting automatically
  • Some StoutFS drives will display with a red x, but this does not necessarily mean they are inaccessible. StoutFS drives are only available while connected to the UW-Stout network, must use VPN from off campus to connect to these network drives.

Only Ricoh and Lanier scanners are supported with scanning function - Other network printers with scanner capabilities are not supported on  UW-Stout's network scanning system
