Default IPv4 behavior
When turned on, a factory-default print server connected to a network through a cable (wired), retrieves its IPv4 settings by systematically using BOOTP, DHCP, and RARP. This can take several minutes to complete. If configuration fails, a default IPv4 address is assigned.
Configuration tools that require a specific default IP address on the print server for initial communication might not function without modification. To view the default IP address settings on the print server, use the HP Jetdirect configuration page.
