IMPORTANT: To determine if your device has the ConnectKey software, print a Configuration Report and view the software code. If the software begins with 071 or 072, then it is a ConnectKey device and these instructions pertain to your device. If the software does not begin with 071 or 072, then a different set of instructions is required. See the Related Content for additional information on How To Setup SMart eSolutions Correctly, Configure the Proxy Server, and Create a Machine Digital Certificate (if Required) Without ConnectKey.

IMPORTANT: Auto Supplies Replenishment (ASR) requires device connectivity. If a device loses connectivity, ASR will cease and the customer will need to place manual supplies orders. Once connectivity is re-established, the process for automatic delivery of supplies is re-initiated in Europe with no further customer intervention. In US and Canada, ASR will resume once a manual order (phone or web) is placed after reconnection. For questions regarding ASR, contact your regional metered supplies help desk.

IMPORTANT: Setting up SMart eSolutions requires knowledge of your network and network settings, including: Machine IP Address, Gateway Address, Domain Name Preferred (Primary) and DNS Server Address. If necessary, contact your Network or System Administrator for assistance.
