Setup the network

After turning on the printer you need to configure the printer to be used in your network. We prefer to have static IP address for the printer or a DHCP reservation made by the network administrator.

Preparation needed for network settings if you want to use static IP:

  • A free IP address
  • Subnet mask
  • Gateway IP address

When you turn on the printer for the first time the IP address will be assigned by your DHCP server in the network. To view the IP address, go to the console tab on the LCD screen.

Change to Static IP address

To set a static IP address please use the following instructions in the Web Interface of the printer. To access the web interface, open a web browser (prefer Chrome) and surf to the IP address which you found on the console tab of the LCD screen

Go to Settings and select the System Editor

Open the config.g file via a left mouse click on the name config.g

Search in this file for the line:

M552 P0.0.0.0

Change this line to:

M552 (Where is your IP address, for example: M552 P192.168.1.10)

Next search for the line:

M553 P255.255.255.0

This is your subnet mask. If you have to change it, do this accordingly your details of the subnet mask in the

same way as you changed the IP address

Next search for the line:

M554 P0.0.0.0

Here you set your Gateway IP address in the same way as you changed the IP address.

After changing this detail, please click on Save Changes in the bottom of the editor.

Now you only have to reboot the machine to make the changes active. At the question, if you want to restart

the printer please click Yes.

Change to DHCP IP address

If you want to revert back to DHCP mode, please change the IP address to and follow the chapter about

Change to Static IP address. You don’t have to change the gateway to put the machine in DHCP mode
