NOTE: The images in this procedure are for demonstration purposes only and may not specifically match your printer model; colors, icons, and other minor differences may exist.

You can access the administration and configuration settings from the Tools menu on the control panel or from the Properties tab in the Embedded Web Server. The control panel consists of a touch screen and buttons you press to control the functions available on the printer. The Embedded Web Server is the administration and configuration software installed on the printer. It allows you to configure and administer the printer from a Web browser.

The administrator password is required when accessing locked settings in the Embedded Web Server 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 the Embedded Web Server, and settings on the device touch screen Tools menu on the device touch screen.

NOTE: Xerox recommends the default password be modified from the default for security reasons. Refer to Change the System Administrator Password
