SETTING UP THE NETWORK
You need to set up the network protocols on the machine (;printer) to use it
in the network environment. If you use your machine in the wired network,
refer to 'Using a wired network'. If you use your network printer in the
wireless network, refer to "Using a wireless network(Windows/CLX-3175FW
Supported operation environments
The following table shows the network environments supported by the
USING A WIRED NETWORK
You must set up the network protocols on your printer to use it on your
network. This chapter will show you how this is easily accomplished.
Printing Configuration report
You can print a Network Configuration Report from the machine's control
panel that will show the current machine’s network settings. This will help
you to set up a network and troubleshooting problems.
Please review your machines User's Guide to learn of more details. Using
this Network Configuration Report, you can find your machine’s MAC
address and IP address.
MAC Address : 00:15:99:41:A2:78
IP Address : 184.108.40.206
Setting IP address
Firstly, you have to set up an IP address for network printing and
managements. In most cases a new IP address will be automatically
assigned by a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol Server) located
on the network.
In a few situations the IP address must be set manually. This is called a
static IP and is often required in corporate Intranets for security reasons.
DHCP IP assignment
: Connect your machine to the network, and wait
a few minutes for the DHCP server to assign an IP address to the
machine. Then, print the Network Configuration Report as explained
above. If the report shows that the IP address has changed, the
assignment was successful. You will see the new IP address on the
Static IP assignment
: Use SetIP program to change the IP address
from your computer. If your machine has a control panel, you can also
change IP address using the machine's control panel.
In an office environment, we recommend that you contact a network
administrator to set this address for you.
IP setting using the control panel
Press Menu on the control panel until you see Network on the
bottom line of the display and press OK.
Press the left/right arrow until TCP/IP appears and press OK.
Press the left/right arrow until Static appears and press OK.
Press the left/right arrow until IP Address appears and press OK.
Enter a byte between 0 and 255 using the number keypad and press
the left/right arrow to move between bytes.
Repeat this to complete the address from the 1st byte to the 4th byte.
When you have finished, press OK.
Repeat steps 6 and 7 to configure the other TCP/IP parameters:
subnet mask and gateway address.
IP setting using the SetIP program
The following procedure is based on Windows XP.
This program is for manually setting the network IP address of your
machine using its MAC address to communicate with the machine. MAC
address is a hardware serial number of the network interface and can be
found in the Network Configuration Report.
Installing the program
Insert the Printer Software CD-ROM provided with your machine.
When the driver CD runs automatically, close that window.
Start a web browser such as Internet Explorer and open the X drive.
(X represents your CD-ROM drive.)
Double-click Application > SetIP.
Double-click Setup.exe to install this program.
Click OK. If necessary, select a language from the drop-down list.
Follow the instructions in the window and complete the installation.
Ethernet 10/100 Base-TX
802.11 b/g Wireless LAN
Network operating system
Server 2008 R2
Various Linux OS
MAC OS 10.3 ~ 10.6
Authentication: Open System, Shared
Key, WPA Personal, WPA2
Encryption: WEP64, WEP128, TKIP,
You only need to run this program if your network requires a
static IP address. Otherwise, you may proceed to the
Configuring the machine’s wireless network
part of this
document. If you are unsure of this requirement ask the system
administrator or the person who has set up your local network.
You can only use the SetIP program when your machine is
connected to a network or directly connected to a PC with the
crossover network cable included with your machine. In most
cases we recommend using the crossover cable. You will be
asked to connect this cable in a moment.
