Using the embedded Web server

Using the embedded Web server

When the printer is directly connected to a computer, use the HP ToolboxFX to view Web pages for the printer status.

When the printer is connected to the network, the embedded Web server is automatically available. You may access the embedded Web server from any supported browser.

The embedded Web server allows you to view printer and network status and to manage printing functions from your computer instead of using the printer control panel. Below are examples of what you can do using the embedded Web server:

View printer status information.
Set the type of paper loaded in each tray.
Determine the remaining life on all supplies and order new ones.
View and change tray configurations.
View and change the printer.
View and print internal information pages.
View and change network configuration.

The embedded Web server supports the following browsers:

Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 and later
Netscape 7.0 or later
Opera 7.0 or later
Firefox 1.0 or later
Mozilla 1.6 or later
Safari 1.2 or later

The embedded Web server works when the printer is connected to an IP-based network. The embedded Web server does not support IPX-based or AppleTalk printer connections. You do not need Internet access to open and use the embedded Web server.
