Change copier FTP anonymous access

Retina network security scanner shows FTP anonymous write access as a vulnerability. I only need FTP anonymous for a networked KonicaMinolta Di551 copier used for scanning documents to PDF file format into a folder on the server. Does anyone have any idea if a copier can scan to a network folder without using the FTP anonymous account?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Yes they can. we currently use Savin copiers and we have an account setup on our domain that we setup on the copier with password to scan to folders on the domain through an SMB connection.

    Thank you. I just placed a call to my copier vendor and also learned that I can change the copier to use an Active Directory account. I should be all set now.

    cool. ours had issues with AD for some reason, (after some MS patches I do believe). what we ended up doing was creating a local account on the server, (which if it is a Domain Controller you cannot do, local accounts are disabled). then setting up security on the folder on that server with that account. then setup that account on the copier. If the user has their home drive on that server you can scan directly to it. Just setup the account and give it modify rights to thier home directory. Also make sure that you setup the account so that the password does not change or expire.
