Use the HP Embedded Web Server
This product is equipped with an embedded Web server (EWS), which provides access to information
about product and network activities. A Web server provides an environment in which web programs
may run, much in the same way that an operating system, such as Windows, provides an
environment for programs to run on a computer. The output from these programs can then be
displayed by a Web browser, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, Safari, or Netscape Navigator.
An “embedded” Web server resides on a hardware device (such as an HP LaserJet product) or in
firmware, rather than as software that is loaded on a network server.
The advantage of an EWS is that it provides an interface to the product that anyone with a network-
connected product and computer can use. There is no special software to install or configure, but you
must have a supported Web browser on the computer. To gain access to the EWS, type the IP
address for the product in the address line of the browser. To find the IP address, print a configuration
For Macintosh operating systems, you can use the EWS over a USB connection after
installing the Macintosh software included with the product.
