Understand the network configuration page

If the printer is connected to a network, you can print a network configuration page to
view the network settings for the printer. You can use the network configuration page to
help troubleshoot network connectivity problems. If you need to call HP, it is often
useful to print this page before calling.

To print the network configuration page
On the printer control panel, press and hold the (Resume) button, and then press the

(Wireless) button.

WPS PIN: Shows the WPS PIN for you to set up the printer on your wireless
network using the PIN Method.


General Information: Shows information about the current status and active
connection type of the network, and other information, such as the URL of the
embedded web server.


802.3 Wired: Shows information about the active Ethernet network connection,
such as the IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, as well as the hardware
address of the printer.


802.11 Wireless: Shows information about your wireless network connection,
such as the hostname, IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, and server.


Miscellaneous: Shows information about more advanced network settings.

Port 9100: The printer supports raw IP printing through TCP Port 9100. This
HP-proprietary TCP/IP port on the printer is the default port for printing. It is
accessed by HP software (for example, the HP Standard Port).

LPD: Line Printer Daemon (LPD) refers to the protocol and programs
associated with line-printer spooling services that may be installed on
various TCP/IP systems.

NOTE: The LPD functionality can be used with any host
implementation of LPD that complies with the RFC 1179 document. The
process for configuring printer spoolers, however, might differ. See your
system documentation for information about configuring these systems.

Bonjour: Bonjour services (which use mDNS, or Multicast Domain Name
System) are typically used on small networks for IP address and name
resolution (through UDP port 5353), where a conventional DNS server is not

SLP: Service Location Protocol (SLP) is an Internet standard network
protocol that provides a framework to allow networking applications to
discover the existence, location, and configuration of networked services in
enterprise networks. This protocol simplifies discovery and use of network
resources such as printers, web servers, fax machines, video cameras, files
systems, backup devices (tape drives), databases, directories, mail servers,

Microsoft Web Services: Enable or disable the Microsoft Web Services
Dynamic Discovery (WS Discovery) protocols or Microsoft Web Services for
Devices (WSD) Print services supported on the printer. Disable unused print
services to prevent access through those services.

NOTE: For more information about WS Discovery and WSD Print, visit

SNMP: SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) is used by network
management applications for device management. The printer supports
SNMPv1 protocol on IP networks.

WINS: If you have a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server
on your network, the printer automatically obtains its IP address from that
server and registers its name with any RFC 1001 and 1002-compliant
dynamic name services as long as a WINS server IP address has been

IPP: Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) is a standard network protocol for
remote printing. Unlike other remote IP-based protocols, IPP supports
access control, authentication, and encryption, allowing for more secure
