Configuring IP parameters
TCP/IP configuration parameters can be configured manually, or they can be automatically downloaded by using DHCP or BOOTP each time the printer is turned on.
When turned on, a new printer that is unable to retrieve a valid IP address from the network automatically assigns itself a default IP address. The default IP address depends on the type of network to which the printer is connected. On a small private network, a technique called link-local addressing is used to assign a unique IP address in the range of 169.254.1.0 to 169.254.254.255, which should be valid. On a large or enterprise network, a temporary address of 184.108.40.206 is assigned until the printer is configured for your network. The IP address for the printer is listed on the printer Configuration page.
