Embedded Web server

A Web server provides an environment in which Web

programs can run, in much the same way that an

operating system, such as Microsoft





provides an environment in which programs can run on

your computer. A Web browser, such as Microsoft

Internet Explorer, Netscape, Opera, Mozilla Firefox,

or Safari can show output from a Web server.

An embedded Web server (EWS) resides on a

hardware product (such as a printer) or in the firmware,

rather than as software that is loaded on a network

server. The advantage of an embedded Web server is

that it provides an interface to the product that anyone

who has a network-connected computer and a standard

Web browser can open and use. No special software

needs to be installed or configured.

With the HP Embedded Web Server, you can view

product status information, change settings, and

manage the product at your computer.

To open the embedded Web server

In a supported Web browser on your computer, type the

IP address that has been assigned to the device.

For example, if the IP address is,

type the following address into the Web browser:

The IP address for the device is listed on the Network

configuration page.

After you open the embedded Web server, you can

bookmark it so that you can return to it quickly in the
