How do I disable the APIPA protocol?

If you want to reset the print server back to its default settings with the APIPA protocol disabled, follow these steps:


  1. Turn off the printer.

  2. Make sure that the front cover is closed and the power cord is plugged in.
  3. Hold down the Go button as you turn on the power switch. Firstly all the LEDs will light up and then the Status LED will turn off. Release the Go button. All the LEDs have should be in the off status.
  4. Press the Go button seven times. Make sure that all the LEDs light up to indicate the print server has been reset to its default settings.
