You can access the administration and configuration settings from the Tools tab on the Control Panel or from the Properties tab in CentreWare Internet Services (CWIS).

  • The Control Panel consists of a Touch Screen and buttons you press to control the functions available on the printer.
  • CWIS is the administration and configuration software installed on the embedded Web Server in the printer. It allows you to configure and administer the printer from a Web browser. See the Related Content for additional information.

The administrator password is required when accessing locked settings in CWIS or at the Control Panel. Most printer models have a default configuration that restricts access to some settings. Access is restricted for settings on the Properties tab in CWIS and settings on the Tools tab on the Control Panel Touch Screen.
