Using the Embedded Web Server

Note: 

This feature is available only in network printers or printers

connected to print servers.

If the printer is installed on a network, then you can use the Embedded
Web Server to do the following:

View the virtual display of the printer control panel.

Check the status of the printer supplies.

Configure supply notifications.

Configure printer settings.

Configure network settings.

View reports.

To access the Embedded Web Server for your printer:

1

Obtain the printer IP address:

From the TCP/IP section in the Network/Ports menu

By printing a network setup page or menu settings page, and
then finding the TCP/IP section

Notes:

An IP address appears as four sets of numbers separated
by periods, such as 123.123.123.123.

If you are using a proxy server, then temporarily disable
it to load the Web page correctly.
