Note:  You will need the IP address of your Sharp MFP.

The following shows how to set up account codes on the web interface of the Sharp MFP

Note:  To be able to print, once account codes (authentication) has been enabled, you must enter the account number in the Job Handling tab of the printer driver: Right-click the Sharp printer > Select Printing Preferences > Select the Job Handling tab > Check the User Number box and enter the given account number.  Make sure the Login Name and/or Password boxes are not checked if using Number only (recommended) account codes (See images below).
