Setting IPv6 Addresses

The IPv6 addresses of the machine can be configured via the Remote UI. Before setting IPv6 addresses, check the IPv4 address settings (Viewing IPv4 Settings). You need to set the correct IPv4 settings to use IPv6 addresses. Note that the scan function that uses the scanner driver or MF Scan Utility is not available in an IPv6 environment. The machine can use the following multiple IPv6 addresses:
Link-local address
An address that is only valid within a subnet or link and cannot be used to communicate with devices beyond a router. A link-local address is automatically set when the IPv6 function of the machine is enabled.
Manual address
An address that is entered manually. When using this address, specify the prefix length and default router address.
Stateless address
An address that is generated automatically using the MAC address of the machine and the network prefix that is advertised by the router. Stateless addresses are discarded when the machine is restarted (or turned ON).
Stateful address
An address obtained from a DHCP server using DHCPv6.
For more information about the basic operations to be performed when setting the machine from the Remote UI, see Setting Up Menu Options from Remote UI.
Start the Remote UI and log in to System Manager Mode. Starting Remote UI
Click [Settings/Registration] on the Portal page. Remote UI Screen
Select [Network Settings]  [IPv6 Settings].
Click [Edit].
Select the [Use IPv6] check box and configure the required settings.
[Use IPv6]
Select the check box to enable IPv6 on the machine. When not using IPv6, clear the check box.
[Stateless Address 1]
Select the check box when using a stateless address. When not using a stateless address, clear the check box.
[Use Manual Address]
When you want to manually enter an IPv6 address, select the check box and enter the IP address, prefix length, and default router address in the corresponding text boxes.
[IP Address]
Enter an IPv6 address. Addresses that start with "ff" (or multicast address) cannot be entered.
[Prefix Length]
Enter a number that indicates how many bits are available for the network address.
[Default Router Address]
Specify the IPv6 address of the default router as necessary. Addresses that start with "ff" (or multicast address) cannot be entered.
[Use DHCPv6]
Select the check box when using a stateful address. When not using DHCPv6, clear the check box.
Click [OK].
Restart the machine. Restarting the Machine
Checking whether the settings are correct
Make sure that the Remote UI screen can be displayed with your computer by using the IPv6 address of the machine. Starting Remote UI
Selecting settings from the operation panel
IPv6 settings can also be accessed from <Menu> in the Home screen. <IPv6 Settings>
