Control panel setup
This field displays the current subnet mask used by the machine. If you are not using DHCP or BOOTP to
obtain the subnet mask, enter the desired subnet mask. Check with your network administrator for the subnet
mask to use.
This field displays the current gateway or router address used by the machine. If you are not using DHCP or
BOOTP to obtain the gateway or router address, enter the address you wish to assign. If you do not have a
gateway or router, leave this field blank. Check with your network administrator if you are unsure.
IP Boot Tries
This field displays the number of attempts the machine will try to obtain an IP address when the Boot Method
is set to any setting except Static.
The setting of On will cause the print server to automatically allocate a Link-Local IP address in the range
(169.254.1.0 - 169.254.254.255) when the print server cannot obtain an IP address through the Boot Method
you have set. (See Boot Method uu page 36.) Choosing Off means the IP address does not change, when
the print server cannot obtain an IP address through the Boot Method you have set.
This machine is compatible with IPv6, the next generation Internet protocol. If you want to use the IPv6
protocol, choose On. The default setting for IPv6 is Off. For more information on the IPv6 protocol, visit
• If you set IPv6 to On, turn off the power switch and then turn it back on to enable this protocol.
• After you choose IPv6 On, this setting will be applied to both the wired and wireless LAN interface.
