Setting the Printer’s IP Address
Other Methods for Setting the Printer’s IP Address
You can set the printer’s IP address by any of the following methods:
Front panel — See page 15.
DHCP — See page 16.
Downloaded configuration file — see www.xerox.com/officeprinting/infoSMART.
Can be used on hosts that do not have BOOTP, or DHCP. For UNIX, use a
Xerox-provided shell script to prepare a configuration file. Sending the file to the
printer stores the IP address information in the printer’s memory, where the printer
reads it when reset.
PostScript Utility files — see the ReadMe file on printer’s CD-ROM.
PC and Macintosh users can also set IP parameters using PostScript utility files. The
PC ReadMe file is in the UTILS directory; the Macintosh ReadMe file is in the
Network Utilities folder.
When two or more IP address methods are used simultaneously, the printer uses
the first address that it successfully obtains.
