Domain Name System (DNS) is a system that maps host names to IP addresses.

  1. In the Embedded Web Server, log in as administrator, then click Connectivity. For additional information see the Related Content.
  2. In the Connections area, click Ethernet.
  3. In the DNS area, click Edit.
  4. For Domain Name, type a unique name for your printer. If the host name registers to the DNS server successfully, the host name appears as a Verified Host Name. The default host name is XRXxxx, where xxx is the MAC address of the printer.

    Note: If no host name appears on the network, the host name did not register to the DNS server successfully. Configure your DHCP server to perform updates on behalf of the DHCP clients.

  5. For Connection Timeout, type the amount of time to wait before the connection times out.
  6. For IPv4 DNS Servers, to let DHCP assign address, for Use DHCP to Assign Address, click the toggle button. If you do not use DHCP, enter the following information:
    • For Primary Server, type the IP address for the primary DNS server.
    • For Alternate Server 1, type the IP address for the first alternate DNS server.
    • For Alternate Server 2, type the IP address for the second alternate DNS server.
  7. For IPv4 DNS Servers, to let DHCP assign the address, for Use DHCPv6-lite to Assign Address, click the toggle button. If you do not use DHCP, enter the following information:
    • For Primary Server, type the IP address for the primary DNS server.
    • For Alternate Server 1, type the IP address for the first alternate DNS server.
    • For Alternate Server 2, type the IP address for the second alternate DNS server.
  8. For DNS Search Domains, select Generate Search Domain List Automatically. Alternatively, you can define up to three DNS Search domains.
    • For Primary Domain, type the IP address for the primary DNS server.
    • For Alternate Domain 1, type the IP address for the first alternate DNS server.
    • For Alternate Domain 2, type the IP address for the second alternate DNS server.
  9. Click OK.
