View the embedded Web server
This section assumes that a wireless network connection is established.
If a wireless network connection is not established, you can use the embedded Web server to configure the HP Jetdirect wireless print server with wireless settings for your network.
Using IPv6 protocols, addesses are typically configured automatically on the print server, although manual configuration is available. For basic information on IPv6 addresses, see TCP/IP configuration.
Using IPv4 protocols, you can automatically configure IP parameters over the network, using BOOTP or DHCP each time the print server is turned on. Or, you can manually configure IP parameters using the printer’s control panel (for selected printers), Telnet, the arp and ping commands, HP Web Jetadmin or other management software. For more information on TCP/IP configuration options, see TCP/IP configuration.
When turned on, an HP Jetdirect print server that cannot retrieve a valid IP address from the network automatically assigns itself either the default IPv4 address 188.8.131.52 or a link-local address in the range 169.254.1.0 to 169.254.254.255. You can determine the IP address configured on your print server by inspecting the HP Jetdirect configuration page. See TCP/IP configuration for more information.
If the default IPv4 address 184.108.40.206 is assigned, you must temporarily set up your computer with the same IP network number or establish a route to the print server before you can use the embedded Web server.
By factory default, HP Jetdirect print servers and printers/MFPs with IPsec support are configured as a secure site, using an X.509v3-compliant certificate installed on the print server for identification. Encrypted browser communications through HTTPS is required for initial access.
Although not recommended, you can use your Internet Options menu to configure your browser to ignore security warnings if the print server is configured to operate through HTTPS. See Mgmt. Protocols.
