The printer must be configured for TCP/IP (IP address, Subnet Mask, Broadcast address, Gateway address). If necessary, print a Configuration Report and make sure the printer has an IP address, and the HTTP protocol enabled. See the Related Content for additional information.

    NOTE: If the window fails to display, enter the IP address followed by /index.dhtml in the Address field, and then press [Enter]. For example, xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/index.dhtml (where 'x' represents the IP address).

For Apple Macintosh OS X:
