Using the embedded Web server

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.
