Using DHCP to Configure the IP address

The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is one of several
automated mechanisms for IP address allocation. If you have DHCP
Server in your network (typically a Unix/Linux, Windows NT
2000, XP or Novell Netware network) the Print/Fax server
will automatically obtains its IP address from DHCP server and
register its name with any RFC 1001 and 1002-compliant dynamic
name services.
If you do not want your Print/Fax server configured via
DHCP, BOOTP or RARP, you must set the BOOT METHOD
to static so that the Print/Fax server has a static IP address.
This will prevent the Print/Fax server from trying to obtain an
IP address from any of these systems. To change the BOOT
METHOD, use the machine's control panel, a Web browser
or by using the BRAdmin Professional utility.

Using APIPA to Configure the IP Address

With Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA), DHCP clients
automatically configure an IP address and subnet mask when a
DHCP server is not available. The device chooses it's own IP
address in the range through to The
subnet mask is automatically set to and the gateway
address is set to
By default, the APIPA protocol is enabled.
