All printers must have TCP/IP addresses when used in a networked environment. You cannot configure any computer in your office to print unless you know the IP address of a networked printer. It’s always a good idea to keep track of your office printer’s IP addresses, especially if they’re static; however, if you don’t know what a printer’s IP address is, there are a few methods you can use to find out. Printing a configuration page is the quickest option, but if the unit is connected as a network printer to any computer in your office, you can also find the IP address in Windows.

Using the Printer Menu
1.Find your printer user manual, or download it from the manufacturer’s website. Look for a section on printing a configuration page.

2.Print a configuration page using the printer’s instruction manual as a reference. Usually, this involves pressing and holding a single button, such as the “Continue” button. In other cases, you must press and hold the “Cancel” button for a few seconds and then press “Continue.”

3.Examine the configuration page and locate your IP address. It may be listed under “IPv4 address” or “Network Address.”

Using Windows
1.Click “Start” and “Printers and Faxes.”

2.Double-click on the printer in question, and double-click “See what’s printing.” The print queue dialog box appears.

3.Click “Printer” from the menu and select “Properties.”

4.Click the “Ports” tab and click your printers’ port. The correct port has a checked box next to it.

5.Click the “Configure Port . . . “ button. The IP address is listed in the “Printer Name or IP Address” field.
