Dell Printer Configuration Web Tool

 

  Using the Dell Printer Configuration Web Tool

One of the features of the Dell Printer Configuration Web Tool is the E-Mail Alert Setup, which sends you or the key operator an e-mail when the printer needs supplies or intervention.

If you fill out printer inventory reports requiring the asset tag number of all of the printers in your area, use the Printer Information feature in the Dell Printer Configuration Web Tool. Just type the IP address of each printer on the network to display the asset tag number.

The Dell Printer Configuration Web Tool feature also lets you change printer settings and keep track of printing trends. If you are a network administrator, you can easily copy the printer's settings to one or all printers on the network – right from your Web browser.

To launch the Dell Printer Configuration Web Tool, just type your network printer's IP address in your Web browser.

If you do not know what your printer's IP address is, print a Printer Settings page, which lists the IP address:

  1. Press Menu.

  2. Press until Report/List appears, and then press or .

  3. Printer Setting is displayed. Press .

The Printer Settings page is printed.

If the IP address shows 0.0.0.0 (the factory default), an IP address has not been assigned. To assign one for your printer, see "Assign an IP Address."
