Setting an IPv4 Address

There are two methods to set an IPv4 address: allocating automatically using DHCP and entering manually. Select either of the two according to your environment. Conduct a connection test as necessary.

Setting an IPv4 Address

1
Select <Set> on the <Home> screen. <Home> Screen
2
Select <Preferences>  <Network>  <TCP/IP Settings>  <IPv4 Settings>.
3
Select <Use IPv4> <On> to enable IPv4 settings.
4
Select <IP Address Settings> and set an IP address.
You can also set both automatic retrieval and manual retrieval. If you set both and set <Release Address Last Acquired from DHCP Server When Address Cannot Be Acquired> to <Off>, the manually entered IP address is used when automatic IP address retrieval fails.
Automatically assigning an IP address
1
Select <IP Address Settings>  <Auto Acquire>.
2
Select <Select Protocol> <DHCP>.
3
Check that <Auto IP> is set to <On>.
If <Off> is selected, change the setting to <On>.
4
Select <Apply>.
If you press <Auto IP>, the available IP address is automatically searched in the network (LAN) and the value for each item is allocated. This function allocates the IP address without using a DHCP server. However, communication outside of the router range is not available.
In an environment where both <DHCP> and <Auto IP> cannot be used, if either of the two is selected, useless communication occurs because the machine tries to check if the service is provided on the network.
IP addresses assigned via DHCP override the address obtained via Auto IP.
Setting by manual entry
1
Configure a setting to disable auto-acquisition.
Select <Auto Acquire>, and set both <Select Protocol> and <Auto IP> to <Off>.
2
Select <Manually Acquire>.
3
Enter the IP address, the subnet mask, and the gateway address.
Enter these values in each screen using the numeric keys, and press .

Conducting a Connection Test for an IPv4 Address

When the machine is connected properly, the Remote UI login screen can be displayed from the computer (Starting the Remote UI). You can conduct a connection test on the control panel of the machine.
<Set> <Preferences>  <Network>  <TCP/IP Settings>  <IPv4 Settings>  <PING Command>  Enter the address of any other in-use device 
When the machine is connected correctly, the <Received response from host.> message is displayed.
Even though IP addresses are properly set, if the machine is connected to a switching hub, the machine might not be connected to the network. In this case, delay the timing of the machine's communication start and try to connect again. Setting the Wait Time When Connecting to a Network
