Well, you could start by telling us the brand name, Ricoh perhaps?
Second, perhaps you could get a wireshark trace of the windows driver
making a small, low resolution network scan? Make sure you capture the
entire packet length. Then compress that log, and put it up on the web
where we can reach it. Perhaps someone will recognize the protocol.
