Using the embedded Web server
When the printer is connected to the network, the embedded Web server is automatically available. You can open the embedded Web server from Windows 95 and later.
When the printer is directly connected to a computer, use the HP ToolboxFX to view the printer status.
Use the embedded Web server to view printer and network status and to manage printing functions from your computer instead of from the printer control panel.
To use the embedded Web server, you must have Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 or later, Netscape Navigator 7 or later, Safari 1.2 or later, Konqueror 3.2 or later, Firefox 1.0 or later, Mozilla 1.6 or later, or Opera 7 or later. The embedded Web server works when the printer is connected to an IP-based network. The embedded Web server does not support IPX-based or AppleTalk printer connections. You do not need Internet access to open and use the embedded Web server.
