Email Address Book Settings

I have a printer at work which is located in a very secure environment.  They need to only allow a single email address to be used.  I don't think that this can be done from the touch screen on the printer, I think it can only be done via web interface.  But the security in that room doesn't allow internet access.  Is there a way to connect a laptop directly to the printer and make the change that way?

 

Thanks for your help.

*If you can't get on the printers web interface as it is not on the LAN and need to plug direct into it to access CWIS, I cannot think why the printer would be allowed to access the LAN to the extent that you could send an email, seems like quite a loophole to the security in the environment, having stated that*

 

Following is just cut and paste from a thing I have, so replace the 10.1.1.1 with your printer IP, on the PC make the last octet be +1 to your printer IP. This is generic enough to work with any network device, you must use a Crossover cable to do this, it doesn't work with a regular network cable

 

From the Windows 7 client Workstation do the following;

  • Click start/control panel/Network and Sharing Centre.
  • Under “view you active connections” click the hyperlink below “Access Type: Internet” on your active connection.
  • Click the properties radio button.
  • Select Internet Protocol version 4 and click the properties radio button.
  • Select “Use the following IP address” and enter the following;

IP Address: 10.1.1.1

Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0

Gateway: [leave-it-blank]

DNS Servers: [leave-it-blank]

  • Click ok and close the control Panel.

From the Printer

  • Work with your printer vender to access the tcp/ip v4 settings of the network card and enter the following;

IP Address: 10.1.1.2

Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0

Gateway: [leave-it-blank]

DNS Servers: [leave-it-blank]
