Exit—Exit from the software
Search—Search printers in the same LAN

2. Search printer
Click “Search” button in the main interface, the dialog box appearing will begin searching
automatically and show appearance, listing a printer in the main interface if found. The time is
counting down in the progress bar (10s in total) and the search will finish as soon as the time
is over. When going on searching, press “search” button again.
If the printer still can not be found out when the network connection is correct and in the same
network, Please check whether the network fire wall on the PC open or not. If there is fire wall,
please close it temporarily, open again after finishing searching and setting a printer completely.
3. Setting printer’s IP address
The printer’s information is listed in the main interface, the left side of which is the model and
description and the right is the IP and MAC address. What’s more, the assign mode
(dynamic/static) is noted behind the IP address.
- 10 -
DP100 User’s Manual
1) Correlative description for IP address settings
In order to search and set printer’s IP address conveniently for the first time, the factory
default setting is DHCP mode which assigns IP address dynamically. If there is no DHCP
server in the connected LAN and printer is set to DHCP mode as well, then it will use the
internal pre-set address (IP: 10.0.0.1, Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0) automatically.
It is suggested that printer’s IP set to static in actual usage, which can cut down the time
when initializing the Ethernet interface as the printer is turned on and prevent IP conflicts
(The dynamic address used in printer may conflict with another one). The network segment
part of the IP address and Subnet Mask must be the same as those of PC connecting with a
printer. For example, the address of working PC is 192.168.0.1/255.255.255.0 (IP/Subnet
Mask),then which of printer should be set to 192.168.0.x/255.255.255.0(x=2~254 and
should avoid the IP in used. It is not restricted for NetFinder to search printers in the same
network but different segment parts (can not stride gateway). Relative glossary of IP
address may refer to corresponding information.
2) Setting printer’s IP address
Select the printer information to be modified (black frame appears), click “Assign IP” button.
Set the IP in the dialog box appearing.
Check the “Use DHCP” if need to assign dynamic address, the settings above will be disabled
automatically. Please make sure there is a DHCP server in the network, or the printer can not
receive an effective IP address.
When to specify static address, uncheck “Use DHCP” and fill in “IP address”, “Subnet Mask”
and “Default Gateway”. If there is no gateway in the network, fill 255.255.255.255 in the
“Default gateway”. “IP address” and “Subnet Mask” should obey the assigning rules of local

Chapter 3 Loading Paper
DP100 can use many kinds of different specification papers. And it also has convenient install and
uninstall paper function. This chapter will introduce these functions in detail.
3.1 Paper Thickness Adjustment
Before loading roll paper or tractor paper, you have to adjust the gap adjust lever on the right
side of the printer. To feed thicker paper through the printer, you need to move the gap adjust
lever from its standard position. The lever moves the print head relative to the platen so that
there is more room for the paper.
Adjusting the gap adjust lever
To obtain good quality printing and avoid problems (paper jam etc.), adjust the gap adjust lever
as shown in the Figure 3-1. The scale number # 1 shown in Figure 3-1 identifies the standard of
paper thickness setting. This is the recommended setting for most paper. Use Table 3-1 to find
the recommended setting for other paper.
