Phaser 860 Color Printer
Setting the Printer’s IP Address 
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a system in which UNIX and 
Windows NT servers can dynamically allocate IP addresses. The printer is a DHCP client; 
when the printer is reset, it receives an IP address from the DHCP server.
Enabling DHCP on the Printer
Make sure that the printer’s DHCP protocol is enabled. You can do this from the front 
panel; see page 32. 
Supported DHCP Fields
The printer recognizes the DHCP fields listed in the following table.
Setting the IP Address Using CentreWare IS
After setting the printer’s IP address by another method, you can perform the rest of the 
TCP/IP configuration using CentreWare IS. 
1.
Connect to the printer via CentreWare IS (see page 23).
2.
On the right side of the printer’s main CentreWare IS page, click Properties. 
3.
On the left side, under Protocols, click TCP/IP.
4.
Enter your printer’s settings and click Save Changes at the bottom of the page. 
Note
The changes will not take effect until the printer is reset.
