TCP/IP and IP Addresses

If your computer is on a large network, contact your network administrator for the appropriate

TCP/IP addresses and additional configuration information.

If you are creating your own small Local Area Network or connecting the printer directly to your computer using Ethernet, follow the procedure for automatically setting the printer’s

Internet Protocol (IP) address.

PCs and printers primarily use TCP/IP protocols to communicate over an Ethernet network.

With TCP/IP protocols, each printer and computer must have a unique IP address. It is important that the addresses are similar, but not the same; only the last digit needs to be different. For example, your printer can have the address 192.168.1.2 while your computer has the address 192.168.1.3. Another device can have the address 192.168.1.4.

Generally, Macintosh computers use either TCP/IP or the EtherTalk protocol to talk to a networked printer. For Mac OS X systems, TCP/IP is preferred. Unlike TCP/IP, however,

EtherTalk does not require printers or computers to have IP addresses.

Many networks have a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server. A DHCP server automatically programs an IP address into every PC and printer on the network that is configured to use DHCP. A DHCP server is built into most cable and DSL routers. If you use a cable or DSL router, see your router’s documentation for information on IP addressing.

Automatically Setting the Printer’s IP Address (Windows)

If the printer is connected to a small established TCP/IP network without a DHCP server, use the installer on the Software and Documentation CD-ROM to detect or assign an IP address to your printer. For further instructions, insert the Software and Documentation CD-ROM into your computer’s CD-ROM drive. After the Installer launches, follow the prompts for installation.

Note: For the automatic Installer to function, the printer must be connected to an established

TCP/IP network.

Configuring the Network Address

Dynamic Methods of Setting the Printer’s IP Address

Set the printer’s IP address using any of the following methods. DHCP is enabled by default on all Phaser printers.

DHCP

CentreWare IS

AutoIP

Information Required for Manual IP Addressing

Information

Internet Protocol (IP) address of the printer

Network Mask

Default Router/Gateway address

Comments

Format is xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx, where xxx represents a decimal number from 0–255.

If you are unsure, leave this blank; the printer chooses an appropriate mask.

Router address is required to communicate with the host device from anywhere other than the local network segment.

Enabling DHCP on the Printer

Verify that the printer DHCP protocol is enabled by setting the control panel or by using

CentreWare IS. DHCP is enabled by default on all Phaser printers.

Note: To determine the printer’s IP address, select Printer Identification on the control panel.

Changing or Modifying the IP Address Using CentreWare IS

CentreWare IS provides a simple interface that enables you to manage, configure, and monitor networked printers from your desktop using an embedded web server. For complete information about CentreWare IS, click the Help button in CentreWare IS to go to the

CentreWare IS Online Help.

After setting the printer’s IP address, you can modify TCP/IP settings using CentreWare IS.

1.

Launch your web browser.

2.

Enter the printer’s IP address in the browser’s Address field (http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx).

3.

Click Properties.

4.

Select the Protocols folder on the left sidebar.

5.

Select TCP/IP.

6.

Enter or modify the settings, and then click Save Changes at the bottom of the page.

Configuring the Network Address

Using Host Names with the Domain Name Service (DNS)

The printer supports DNS through an embedded DNS resolver. The DNS resolver protocol communicates with one or more DNS servers to resolve the IP address for a given host name or the host name for a given IP address.

To use an IP host name for the printer, the system administrator must configure one or more

DNS servers and a local DNS domain name space database. To set up the printer for DNS, supply a maximum of two DNS name server IP addresses.

Dynamic Domain Name Service (DDNS)

The printer supports Dynamic DNS through DHCP. You must have DHCP enabled on the printer for DDNS to function. Your network’s DHCP server must also support Dynamic DNS updates through option 12 or option 81 support. See your network administrator for details.

1.

Launch your web browser.

2.

Enter the printer’s IP address in the browser’s Address field (http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx).

3.

Select Properties.

4.

Select the Protocols folder on the left sidebar.

5.

Select TCP/IP.

6.

In the BOOTP/DHCP Settings section, set the BOOTP/DHCP option to ON.

7.

To enable DDNS, enter the following DDNS/WINS settings information:

DDNS: Set to ON.

Release Host Name: Set to NO.

DDNS/WINS Name: Use the default name provided by Xerox or enter another name.

Primary WINS Server (optional)

Secondary WINS Server (optional)

8.

Click Save Changes when you are finished entering the settings.

Manually Setting the Printer’s IP Address

Note: Verify that your computer has a properly configured IP address for your network.

Contact your network administrator for more information.

If you are on a network without a DNS server, or in an environment where the network administrator assigns printer IP addresses, you can use this method to manually set the IP address. Manually setting the IP address overrides DHCP and AutoIP. Alternatively, if you are in a small office with a single PC and use a dialup modem connection, you can manually set the IP address.

1.

On the control panel, select Printer Setup , and then press the OK button.

2.

Select Connection Setup , and then press the OK button.

3.

Select Network Setup , and then press the OK button.

4.

Select TCP/IP Setup , and then press the OK button.

5.

Select DHCP/BOOTP , and then press the OK button to select Off .

6.

Select TCP/IP Address , and then press the OK button.

7.

Enter the printer’s IP address, and then press the OK button.
