Setting the Printer’s IP Address 
Other Methods for Setting the Printer’s IP Address
You can set the printer’s IP address by any of the following methods: 
I
Front panel — See page 15.
I
DHCP — See page 16.
I
Downloaded configuration file — see www.xerox.com/officeprinting/infoSMART.
Can be used on hosts that do not have BOOTP, or DHCP. For UNIX, use a 
Xerox-provided shell script to prepare a configuration file. Sending the file to the 
printer stores the IP address information in the printer’s memory, where the printer 
reads it when reset. 
I
PostScript Utility files — see the ReadMe file on printer’s CD-ROM.
PC and Macintosh users can also set IP parameters using PostScript utility files. The 
PC ReadMe file is in the UTILS directory; the Macintosh ReadMe file is in the 
Network Utilities folder.
Note
When two or more IP address methods are used simultaneously, the printer uses 
the first address that it successfully obtains.
 
Information Required for IP Addressing
Information
Comments
Internet (IP) address for 
the printer
Format is x.x.x.x, where x represents a decimal number 
from 0 - 255.
Network mask
If you are unsure, leave this blank; the printer will 
choose an appropriate mask.
Default Router/Gateway 
address
If you want to communicate with the printer from 
anywhere other than the local network segment, You 
need the router address. 
Broadcast address
This is the address the printer uses to 
send broadcast 
packets. Regardless of how this parameter is set, the 
printer 
accepts broadcast packets from any of the 
commonly used broadcast address conventions. 
It should not be necessary to set this address, because 
the printer calculates it automatically. However, you 
can override the default setting.
