Click the TCP/IP tab to view or change the TCP/IP values of the PrintServer. (See Figure 6-2.)
IP Address. If you are using DHCP to assign IP addresses, select Obtain an IP Address Automatically. By
default, Obtain an IP Address Automatically is enabled. If you need to assign the PrintServer a Fixed IP Address
(also known as Static IP Address), select Use the Following IP Address, and enter the appropriate values under
IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Gateway. To find your router’s IP address, consult your router’s documentation.
The Device IP Address and Subnet Mask are the same as those of any PC connected to the network. If you
change the PrintServer’s IP address, make sure you that you reconnect to the PrintServer using that new IP
address. Otherwise, you will not be communicating with the PrintServer. The Gateway IP Address is not
necessary for using the PrintServer.
Connection. You can set how long you want the PrintServer to delay between attempting connections to the
network. You can also specify the number of times that the PrintServer will attempt to make a connection. Enter
your chosen values in the fields provided.
Change these settings as described here and click the Save button to apply your changes or click Cancel to
