Protocol Settings for the Printer
Specify the method for setting the IP address of the printer as
needed. Among [DHCP], [BOOTP], and [RARP], set any option
that you want to use for the IP address setting to [On].
As well as by assigning the IP address directly, you can set the IP address by
using any one of DHCP, BOOTP, or RARP. When restarting or resetting the printer,
whether DHCP, BOOTP, and RARP are available is checked, and the IP address
is assigned by the method that is determined to be available the soonest. If you
set [DHCP], [BOOTP], or [RARP] to [Off], the corresponding protocol is not
If you can use none of these, assign the IP address speciﬁed in [IP Address].
Because it takes one to two minutes to check whether DHCP, BOOTP, and RARP
are available, it is recommended that you set the unused protocol(s) to [Off].
To assign the IP address using DHCP, BOOTP, or RARP, the DHCP server, BOOTP
daemon, or RARP daemon needs to be started up.
