Embedded Web server

The embedded Web server allows you to view printer and network status and to manage printing
functions from your computer instead of from the printer control panel. Below are examples of what you
can do using the embedded Web server:

View printer status information

View and print internal pages

Determine the remaining life on all supplies and order new ones

Set the size and type of media loaded in each tray

View and change tray configurations

View and change the printer default configuration settings

View and change network configuration

The embedded Web server provides the same functions as the Advanced Printer Settings section of
the HP ToolboxFX. The main differences between using the embedded Web server and using the
HP ToolboxFX are the following:

You do not need to install any software on the computer. You only need to use one of these
supported Web browsers:

Internet Explorer 6.0 (and later)

Netscape Navigator 7.0 (and later)

Firefox 1.0 (and later)

Mozilla 1.6 (and later)

Opera 7.0 (and later)

Safari 1.2 (and later)

Konqueror 3.2 (and later)

The embedded Web server is available in sixteen languages.

The embedded Web server does not provide e-mail or status alerts.

The embedded Web server works when the printer is connected to an TCP/IP-based network. The
embedded Web server does not support IPX-based printer connections.


You do not have to have Internet access to open and use the embedded Web server.

However, if you click a link on any of the pages, you must have Internet access in order to go to
the site associated with the link.
