Configuration Changes Using a Web Browser

You can check the printer status and change the printer settings using the web browser on your smartphone, tablet, or computer.

To check the printer status and to change the printer settings, display "Remote UI" on the web browser.

 The Remote UI is software that enables you to perform operations, which are usually performed on the printer's operation panel, using a Web browser over a network. A network connection with the printer is required to use the Remote UI.

 You can use Remote UI on the following OS and the web browser.

  • iOS device

    OS: iOS 12.0 or later / iPadOS 12.0 or later

    Web browser: iOS standard Web browser (Mobile Safari)

  • Android device

    OS: Android 5.1 or later

    Web browser: Android standard Web browser or Chrome

  • macOS device

    OS: macOS Sierra v10.12 or later

    Web browser: Safari 10.0 or later

  • Windows device

    OS: Windows 11 / 10 / Windows 8.1 / Windows 7 SP1 or later

    Web browser: Internet Explorer 11 or later, Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox

  1. Make sure that the printer is powered on.

  2. Check the printer's IP address.

    1. Check that the printer is turned on, and display the HOME screen.

      If the HOME screen is not displayed, tap the HOME button.

       If User management settings is enabled, the user selection screen is displayed before the HOME screen is displayed.

    2. Select Setup icon (gear) (Setup) on the touch screen.

      The setup menu screen appears.

    3. Select Device settings icon Device settings.

    4. Select LAN settings.

    6. Select See settings.

    7. Check the IPv4 address.

  3. Open web browser on your smartphone, tablet, or computer and enter IP address.

    Enter as following in the URL field of the web browser.

    http: / / XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX

    Enter the IP address in "XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX".

    The Remote UI will be displayed on the web browser on your smartphone, tablet, or computer.

  4. If you open the Remote UI for the first time on your smartphone, tablet, or computer, select For secure communication.

    Download the root certificate, and then register it.

     Once you register the root certificate to the web browser on your smartphone, tablet, or computer, this step is not necessary after the next time. If all settings are set back to the default from the printer's operation panel, download the root certificate again, and then register it.

     If the root certificate is not registered, a message to warn you that the secure connection is not guaranteed may appear.

  5. Select Log in.

    The password authentication screen appears.

  6. Enter the password.

    When the password authentication is complete, the menus that can be utilized are displayed on the web browser.

     The password is set at the time of purchase. The password is the printer serial number. The printer serial number is printed on the sticker attached on the printer. It consists of 9 alphanumeric characters (four letters followed by five numbers).
