Introduction

About Your Printer

Your printer has a built-in Ethernet interface and can connect anywhere on your network using 10Base-T, 100Base-TX, and 1000Base-T Ethernet. The built-in Ethernet interface, which is called the network interface in this manual, automatically selects the correct standard when it connects to a network. In addition, it automatically selects appropriate network protocols.

Because the network interface supports multiple protocols and automatically detects protocols on your network, you can print from Microsoft

®

Windows

®

applications.

Use the Software Disc to easily configure the network interface for use on the TCP/IP network and install the printer driver. You can use the printer on the TCP/IP network at once.

If you want to configure the network interface for protocols such as TCP/IP, WSD, LLTD,

IPP/IPPS, UPnP, Bonjour, MS Network, and SNMP, use EpsonNet Config, the configuration utility provided with your product, to quickly and easily configure the network interface to use those protocols.

Note:

The EpsonNet Config utility configures the network interface to work only with protocols that exist on your network. This does not imply that you can use all of the above-mentioned protocols on your network or operating system. The protocols that the network interface can use may vary depending on the operating system and the network configuration.

Configuring the Network Interface Using EpsonNet Config with Web

Browser

After you have assigned an IP address to the network interface using EpsonNet Setup,

EpsonNet Config for Windows, or the arp/ping command, you can configure the network interface using EpsonNet Config with Web Browser.

Note:

O

A Web browser must be installed on your computer.

O

TCP/IP must be correctly set for the computer and the network interface.

O

O

Do not run both EpsonNet Config for Windows and EpsonNet Config with Web Browser at the same time.

Your browser may restrict some characters you can use. For details, see your browser or operating system documentation.

The following procedure shows an example of configuring the network interface on a

TCP/IP IPv4 network.

1. Turn on your printer.

2. Run EpsonNet Config using one of the following ways.

O

Run EpsonNet Config for Windows. Select the printer you want to configure from the list and then click Launch Browser .

O

Open your browser, and then type in the IP address of the network interface directly.

Do not run EpsonNet Config for Windows.

https ://IP address of network interface/

Example: https://192.168.100.201/

Note:

O

To check the IP address of the network interface, use EpsonNet Config. See “About EpsonNet

Config” on page 26 for details.

O

If Windows security alert screen appears, click Continue to start EpsonNet Config with Web

Browser.

3. Click TCP/IP under Network on the Configuration menu, then click IPv4 Address to display the TCP/IP IPv4 settings screen.

Note:

If you want to configure a protocol other than TCP/IP, configure the desired settings on

Configuration - Network screen.

Network Software 28

4. Select a method for acquiring the IP address. When you select Auto , DHCP becomes available and assigns an IP address automatically. If you want to set the IP address manually, select Manual .

Note:

O

The network administrator must check any changes made to the IP address settings.

O

When Auto is selected, DHCP becomes available. To use the DHCP server, make sure it is installed on your computer and correctly configured. See your operating system’s online help for detailed instructions.

O

O

If Set Using Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) is enabled, a private IP address is automatically assigned to the network interface even when there are no DHCP servers on your system or your network.

If the DNS function is not supported, we recommend that you select Manual and then enter an

IP address. This is because if you select Auto , the IP address of the network interface changes every time you turn on the printer so that you need to change the printer port setting accordingly.

5. To assign an IP address manually, enter the IP address, the subnet mask, and the default gateway. Be sure the IP address does not conflict with any other devices on the network.

Note:

If there is a server or a router functioning as a gateway, enter the IP address of the server or the router for the gateway address. If there is no gateway, leave the default values there.

6. If you want to get a private address between 169.254.1.1 and 169.254.254.254 automatically when an IP address cannot be obtained by the DHCP server, leave it at

Enable for Set Using Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) ; otherwise, select

Disable .

7. When setting an IP address using the ping command, select Enable for Set Using

PING . Select Disable when setting an IP address with EpsonNet Config; this prevents any unexpected change of the IP address.

8. Select Enable for Acquire DNS Server Address Automatically if you want to acquire the DNS server address using the DHCP server.

If you want to enter the DNS server address manually, select Disable and then enter the IP address of the DNS server.

9. Select Enable for Acquire Host Name and Domain Name Automatically if you want to acquire the host name and the domain name using the DHCP server.

If you want to specify manually, enter the host name and the domain name in the text boxes.

Network Software 29

10. Select Enable for Register Network Interface Address to DNS Server if you want to register the host name and domain name to the DNS server through the DHCP server that supports Dynamic DNS.

If you want to register the host name and the domain name directly to the DNS server, select Enable for Register Network Interface Address Directly to DNS Server .

11. Do not exit the Web browser and do not send a job to the printer until after you follow the on-screen instructions to reset the printer.

Note:

O

Since the new IP address becomes available after the printer is reset, you need to restart

EpsonNet Config by entering the new IP address.

O

Only changes on the page where you press the Transmit button take effect.

Opening Screen

Any user can access the opening screen by typing the IP address of the network interface into the address bar of your browser.

Note:

O

The item appears only if your printer supports the function, and the name of the item may vary depending on the model.

Troubleshooting

General Problems

Cannot configure the network interface or cannot print from the network.

Cause

The printer settings or network settings may be wrong.

What to do

First, check to see if you can print a status sheet, as

described in “Printing a Network Status Sheet (Large

Format Inkjet Printers)” on page 33. If you can print a

status sheet, check the network settings; otherwise, set the interface mode of the printer’s control panel to Auto or Option .

Cannot print even if you have assigned the IP address to the computer and the printer.

Cause

You have assigned an IP address to the computer manually, but you assigned the IP address to the printer by Automatic Private IP

Addressing (APIPA).

What to do

Assign the printer’s IP address so that it belongs to the same segment as the computer. Use EpsonNet Config and the printer’s control panel.

Unable to start EpsonNet Config.

Cause

You have added or deleted protocols after installing EpsonNet

Config.

What to do

Uninstall EpsonNet Config and then reinstall it. See

“Installing EpsonNet Config” on page 26.

Troubleshooting 31

The message “EpsonNet Config cannot be used because no network is installed.” appears when you start EpsonNet Config.

Cause

Both TCP/IP and IPX/SPX are not installed on the computer.

TCP/IP is installed on the computer, but its IP address is not set correctly.

What to do

Install the TCP/IP or IPX/SPX protocol.

Set a correct IP address for the computer.

The message “Could not complete communicating configuration data” appears when you send settings to the network interface.

Cause

This may happen when using a dial-up router.

What to do

Run Command Prompt from the computer on which

EpsonNet Config is installed, and then enter the following command:

Format: >ROUTE_ADD_the IP address of the network interface_ the IP address of the computer (the underscore represents one space)

Example: >ROUTE ADD 192.168.192.168 22.33.44.55.

Unable to start EpsonNet Config with Web Browser.

Cause

You have not set the IP address for the network interface.

What to do

Set the IP address for the network interface using

EpsonNet Config for Windows, or the printer’s control panel. You can check the IP address on a status sheet.

See the EpsonNet Config User’s Guide.

Troubleshooting 32

The Model Name and IP Address do not appear in the EpsonNet

Config dialog box.

Cause

If the valid IP address is not set, the model name and IP address may not appear.

What to do

Set a valid IP address.

Refresh the status by selecting Refresh from the View menu.

Increase the length of time before a timeout. To do this, select Options from the Tool menu, and then select

Timeout . Note that doing so can cause EpsonNet Config to run slower.

Printing a Network Status Sheet (Large Format Inkjet Printers)
