Cloning allows you to save your current printer settings to a file to use as a backup and restore file for your printer. You can also use a clone file to copy your printer settings to other printers.

IMPORTANT: To use the clone feature, both the source printer and the destination printer must be the same model and have the same version of firmware.

To determine the software version:

  1. In the Embedded Web Server, click System. For additional information see the Related Content.
  2. Click Software Update.
  3. In the Software Update area, view the Current Version.

FIPS 140-2

FIPS 140-2 is a security standard for validating cryptographic solutions for hardware, software, and firmware solutions.

If FIPS 140-2 encryption is required, all computers, servers, browser software, security certificates, and applications must comply with the standard or operate in FIPS-compliant mode. Transmitted and stored data must be encrypted as specified in United States Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 (Level 1). You can enable the printer to check that the current configuration ensures the specified encryption.

Enabling FIPS 140 Mode can prevent the printer from communicating with network devices that communicate using protocols that do not use FIPS-compliant encryption algorithms. To allow non-FIPS compliant protocols or features when FIPS 140 mode is enabled, acknowledge the notification of non-compliance during the validation process.

To enable or disable FIPS 140-2:

  1. In the Embedded Web Server, log in as administrator, then click System > Security. For additional information see the Related Content.
  2. In the Network Security area, click FIPS 140-2.
  3. Perform one of the following:
    • To enable, select On, then click OK.
    • To disable, select Off, then click OK.
