Access Web Based Management

The default login password to manage machine settings is either:

  • the password located on the back or bottom of the machine preceded by "Pwd"
    OR
  • initpass

We recommend you change it to protect your machine from unauthorized access.

  1. Start your web browser.
  2. Type "http://machine's IP address" in your browser's address bar (where "machine's IP address" is the machine's IP address).
    For example:
    http://192.168.1.2
    • If you are using a Domain Name System or enable a NetBIOS name, you can type another name, such as "SharedPrinter" instead of the IP address.
      - For example:
        http://SharedPrinter
      If you enable a NetBIOS name, you can also use the node name.
      - For example:
        http://brnxxxxxxxxxxxx
      The NetBIOS name can be found in the Network Configuration Report.
    • For Macintosh, access Web Based Management by clicking the machine's icon on the Status Monitor screen.
  3. If the machine prompts you for a password, type it, and then click Right Arrow.
    If you have not previously set your own password, type the default login password above.

    You can now change the print server settings.
    If you change the protocol settings, you must restart the machine after clicking Submit to activate the configuration.
