APIPA (Automatic Private IP Addressing)
If a DHCP server is not available, the FX Series readers can use APIPA to automatically provide a unique network
IP address. The FX Series readers can then use TCP/IP to communicate with other computers also using an
APIPA-generated IP address.
NOTE APIPA does not function if DHCP is disabled in the reader. When using APIPA, the FX Series reader
cannot communicate with computers on different subnets, or that do not use automatic private IP
addressing. Automatic private IP addressing is enabled by default. For additional information go to:
http://support.microsoft.com/ and search on APIPA
(even though no DHCP server is reachable) and open a browser window.
