Stopping configuration report printing every time I turn it on - printer not networked - just USB

Product Name: Xerox B210 Printer
Operating System: Windows 10

Purchased a B210 printer to connect directly via USB port to my laptop.  I do not want to network it so the Xerox-published solutions for accessing the IP address won't work.  Server keeps timing out.  

I want to disable the Configuration Report printing every time I turn it on.  Wastes ink, paper, and is an annoying feature even for networked printers.  

Xerox advertises this as a home-use printer and I can't be the only person who doesn't have a robust home printing network.  

What is the manufacturer's solution to disable this feature using either printer settings or drivers I have from Xerox?

Please refer to the instuctions below, if you still need assistance after following these instruction I suggest calling into the support department at 1-800-821-2797. 

Connected to the Printer Using a USB Cable

To enable or disable the banner page or startup page:

Note: Xerox Easy Print Manager is no longer supported for Mac OS 10.15 or above

Important: To perform the steps below, you must have a WiFi capable device such as a computer, smart phone, or tablet. This procedure uses a Microsoft Windows 10 PC as the WiFi capable device. Steps will vary depending on the device used.

  1. Open the Xerox Easy Printer Manager program.
    1. At the computer, click search and type Xerox Easy Printer Manger.
    2. Click on Xerox Easy Printer Manager to open the program.
  2. Select Advanced Settings, hover over Device Settings, then select Network Settings.

    Select Advanced Settings, hover over Device Settings, then select Network Settings

  3. For WiFi Direct, select On to enable the feature.
  4. Make note of the IP Address displayed. For example, This address will be used later to access the printer's web interface (CentreWare Internet Services).
  5. For Network Key, enter a password that contains at least 8 characters. This password will be used later to connect to the printer's WiFi Direct signal.
  6. Click Save to save the settings.

    Click Save

  7. From the WiFi capable device (a Windows 10 PC in this example), connect to the printer's WiFi Direct signal:
    1. On the Windows taskbar at the bottom, right of the screen, click on the network icon (network icon or wireless signal icon) and then click on the printer's WiFi Direct signal.

      Click on the printer's WiFi Direct signal

    2. A prompt to enter a network key will be displayed. Enter the password created in step 5, and then click OK to connect.

  8. After you have successfully connected to the printer's WiFi signal, access Xerox CentreWare Internet Services (CWIS):
    1. From the computer, open an Internet browser window.
    2. In the Web browser address field, enter the IP address of the printer noted in step 4 and then press Enter or Return. The CWIS home page will be displayed.

      Note: If you are accessing Xerox CentreWare Internet Services for the first time after printer installation, you will be prompted to change the default Administrator Account password. The initial default password is the printer serial number. See the Related Content for additional information on how to change the default Administrator password.

  9. Click Properties.

    Note: Many features in CWIS require an administrator user name and password to access or modify. If prompted to enter Administrator Account login details:
    1. For User Name, enter Admin.
    2. For Password, enter the administrator account password that was set during initial access to CWIS.
    3. Click OK.

  10. Click Services.
  11. Click Printing.

  12. Click Banner Page.
  13. Select Enabled or Disabled.
  14. Click Apply.

    Click Banner Page, select Enabled or Disabled, then click Apply.

Re: Stopping configuration report printing every time I turn it on - printer not networked - just US

This is so complicated it is requesting another request sign in because my connection is not private???? and the printer continues printing pages of Configuration Report wasting ink and paper, I need to stop it, how is gonna pay for the ink and the paper more than 100 pages this is ridiculous

Re: Stopping configuration report printing every time I turn it on - printer not networked - just US

Wasting a piece of paper every time I turn on a device is nonsense behavior, especially to have as a default and put behind multiple layers of software and services just to turn off. It's unethical from an environmental standpoint, and the user experience is so deliberately terrible that it's downright hostile.

Why - in 2022 - are printer manufacturers still designing interfaces out of the 1990s?

This doesn't work... I disable that, click apply, enter my admin credentials then it says: "Your Selections have been modified successfully."

... after I enter again on that page, it is still enabled and of course it still prints the page. I am wasting paper and tonner everytime I want to print something.

P.S. Tested with Chrome and Brave browsers on Windows.

I had the same problem. The easiest way to disable configuration report printing at startup is to press the info button on the printer and then navigate system setup->machine setup->conf. page, then turn it off.


That worked for me, hope works for you too.
