If NTP is enabled, the date and time on the printer can be set using a network time server. The printer will check the server when powered on, every subsequent 24 hours, and any time the NTP parameters are modified. If the printer is configured to use DHCP, or the GMT offset is provided by the DHCP server, then the data entered here will be overwritten by the corresponding DHCP retrieved items.

NOTE: Users may be required to login as a System Administrator to view or modify settings within CentreWare Internet Services. If prompted, login using the System Administrator username and password. The default username is "admin", and the default password is "1111".

  1. Open CWIS. See the Related Content for additional information.
  2. Click on [Properties] at the top of the window.
  3. Click on [Connectivity] to expand the list of options.
  4. Click on [Protocols] to expand the list.
