Question about Xerox Phaser 7750DN Laser Printer

2 Answers

Can't get my 7750dn to connect to my network

I bought a used 7750dn and can't get it to connect to my network. When I use DHCP/BOOTP server and Auto IP, the printer selects the ip address 168.254.160.83 which is outside my Routers DHCP range. Also not getting any solid lights from the ethernet port. I've also tried manually entering the ip address, but it's still not appearing on the network. Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Maybe you should try a diffrent image control board if available. Also make sure you cleared out the NVRAM because if you have the old IP address from the owner before you it won't work. Call this company that does almost only xerox printers services. www.Iteminc.com is their website I don't know their number but man they got good techs. Hopes this helps and good luck :)

I am not sure why I can't copy and paste the instructions.
You can go to Xerox.com, then click on support and drivers. In the search box type in 7750 then go to the troubleshooting area and type in the search sett up IP and the instructions will be there.
I am sorry, I have tries numerious times to past and send it on here but for some reason it wil not send.
Be sure though, when you get into the network settings, set the DHCP to Manual or static, which ever it says. Don't leave it on Auto,change it to Manual and that way the address will not change.

    Call 1-800-821-2797 and ask for second level support.

    There is something small not happening.

    Can you ping the printer? If you can ping it and the network is not faulting out, the machine should be fine. Those network boards are really finicky if there are problems on them.

    I have never seen one not accept an IP address. That machine has a very stable network board and hard drive.

Does the SR505n modem have a BOOTP mode? how to set it to BOOTP so a DHCP server assigns the IP (not the default 192.168.1.1)?


I am not quite sure what you mean by a "BOOTP" mode for this modem, but the following link takes you to a downloadable pdf file which is the manual for this modem and others in the range.

http://www.start.ca/files/smartrg505n.pdf

Among other things it shows how to disable the DHCP server aspect of this modem (around page 29 I think) and gives you all the means of getting into the modem's settings and configuration area.

DHCP Server configuration in Linux


Linux is a UNIX based operating system. It is a server operating system. REDHAT Linux is Enterprise version of Linux. Now a day's Most of corporate sectors use red hat Linux as server in their company because it is secure very much.

Full form of DHCP "Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. DHCP server assigns IP addresses and other network configuration information like subnet mask, broadcast address, etc to computers on a network. The DHCP assignments are the following.

Lease Request: Client broadcasts their request to DHCP server with a source address of 0.0.0.0 and a destination address of 255.255.255.255.
IP lease offer: DHCP server replies with an IP address, subnet mask, network gateway, name of the domain, name servers, duration of the lease and the IP address of the DHCP server.

Lease Selection: Client receives offer and broadcasts to al DHCP servers that will accept given offer so that other DHCP server need not make an offer.

The DHCP server then sends an ack to the client. The client is configured to use TCP/IP. Lease Renewal: When half of the lease time has expired, the client will issue a new request to the DHCP server.

Installation of DHCP server: First of all while install the RedHat Linux enterprise version server be careful about the ports and the services must be turned on. To create DHCP server in Linux first download DHCP RPM package and install with "rpm-ivh" command. Where I have done it there I have create YUM server, so easily I have download and install it by YUM (yum install dhcp version). DHCP package will locate in /usr/share/doc/at Linux file system. I copied the DHCP's files from /usr/share/doc/ to /etc/dhcpd.conf.. Then I started to configure the dhcpd.conf file to route the DHCP server in there local network. I have open the configuration file with "vi" command. Then commented out the lines from "default gateway to option netbios" because system don't read the commented lines. After that I set the range of IP address in dynamic- bootp of their local assumption of system. I have change the "next-server" with the dhcp server name and have also change the fixed address with the dhcp server IP address (end range of dynamic IP). It is very easy job to configure DHCP server. After configure the .conf file of dhcp just turn on the service with "chkconfig" command and restart the dhcp service. After that entire job I reboot the system. And after rebooting of server I turned on the other client system. While startup the client system without static IP address all of those picked up IP from dhcp server and going on successfully. I have prefer the command line mode to do the total job.
The DHCP server configure file is following:

ddns-update-style interim
ignore client-updates

subnet 192.168.1.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
# The range of IP addresses the server
# will issue to DHCP enabled PC clients

# Set the amount of time in seconds that

# Set the default gateway to be used by

# Don't forward DHCP requests from this
# NIC interface to any other NIC

# Set the broadcast address and subnet mask

# If you specify a WINS server for your Windows clients,
# you need to include the following option in the dhcpd.conf file:

# You can also assign specific IP addresses based on the clients'

What is the default ip address for powerconnect 5212


You must assign an IP address to the switch to gain management access over the network. You may also need to a establish a default gateway between the switch and management stations that exist on another network segment. You can statically configure a specific IP address or direct the switch to obtain an address from a Boot Protocol (BOOTP) or Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server when it is powered on. Valid IP addresses consist of four decimal numbers, 0 to 255, separated by periods. Anything outside this format is not accepted by the CLI program. notice.gif NOTICE: By default, the IP address is assigned to VLAN 1 through DHCP. If you select the bootp or dhcp option, IP is enabled but does not function until a BOOTP or DHCP reply has been received. Requests are broadcast periodically by the switch in an effort to learn its IP address. (BOOTP and DHCP values can include the IP address, default gateway, and subnet mask).
To display assigned IP settings using the CLI:
  1. From the Privileged Exec or Normal Exec level mode, type show ip interface and press <Enter>.

The assigned IP address and subnet mask displays.

  1. From the Privileged Exec mode, type show ip redirects to display the assigned gateway IP address. Press <Enter>.

The following example displays IP settings assigned by bootp or dhcp using the CLI.

Console#show ip interface

IP address and netmask: 10.1.0.1 255.255.252.0 on VLAN 1,

and address mode: User specified.

Console# show ip redirects

ip default gateway 10.1.0.254

Console#
Before you can assign a static IP address to the switch, you must obtain the following information from your network administrator:

  • IP address for the switch

  • Default gateway for the network

  • Network mask for the network

To assign a static IP address to the switch:
  1. From the Privileged Exec level global configuration mode prompt, type interface vlan 1 to access the interface-configuration mode. Press <Enter>.

  2. Type ip address ip-address netmask, where ip-address is the switch IP address and netmask is the network mask for the network.

  3. Type exit to return to the global configuration mode prompt. Press <Enter>.

  4. To set the IP address of the default gateway for the network to which the switch belongs, type ip default-gateway gateway, where gateway is the IP address of the default gateway. Press <Enter>.

  5. To save your configuration changes, type copy running-config startup-config and then press <Enter>.

notice.gif NOTICE: Only one VLAN can be assigned an IP address. If you assign an address to any other VLAN, the new address overrides the original IP address. The following example shows how to set a static IP address using the CLI.

Console(config)# interface vlan 1

Console(config-if)# ip address 192.168.1.5 255.255.255.0

Console(config-if)# exit

Console(config)# ip default-gateway 192.168.1.254

Console(config)#
To configure the switch for DHCP or BOOTP:

  1. From the Privileged Exec level global configuration mode prompt, type interface vlan 1 to access the interface-configuration mode. Press <Enter>.

  2. At the next prompt, use one of the following commands:

    • To obtain IP settings through DHCP, type ip address dhcp

    • To obtain IP setting through BOOTP, type ip address bootp

  3. Press <Enter>.

  4. To save your configuration changes, type copy running-config startup-config, and then press <Enter>.

I installed a new router on our small network and now our hp 4600 color laserjet printer shows offline and will not come online no matter what I try.


First, make sure your Router is configured for DHCP, and the Printer is plugged into the Router using a Network Cable. Also, make sure the Activity light on your Router is On for the Port that your plugged the Printer into.

Configuring TCP/IP parameters
You can use the printer control panel to configure the following TCP/IP parameters:
  • usage of the BOOTP file for configuration parameters (the default is to use the BOOTP file)
  • IP address (4 bytes)
  • subnet mask (4 bytes)
  • default gateway (4 bytes)
  • TCP/IP connection timeout (in seconds)
Note: Do not disable BOOTP if you will be using RARP or DHCP to configure TCP/IP parameters.

To automatically configure TCP/IP parameters from the printer control panel:
1. Press the Check Mark button to enter the MENUS.
2. Press the Down Arrow to highlight CONFIGURE DEVICE.
3. Press the Check Mark button to select CONFIGURE DEVICE.
4. Press the Down Arrow to highlight I/O.
5. Press the Check Mark button to select I/O.
6. Press the Down Arrow to highlight EIO X (where X = 1, 2, or 3).
7. Press the Check Mark button to select EIO X.
8. Press the Down Arrow to highlight AUTO.
9. Press the Check Mark button to select AUTO.
10. Press the PAUSE/RESUME button to return to the READY state.

I followed this suggestion and now the IP address is 0.0.0.0. I can not get to the printer setting. I don't know if the DHCP setting still remained as static instead of dynamic. ANY SUGGESTION?


I had the same problem, after removing the DHCP settings, maybe for an error during the configuration the printer didn't assume the new IP address and it resulted 0.0.0.0 from the configuration page.
No way to connect to the printer until I did a network card reset following this procedure:

************************************
7. Network Card Reset:
a. Turn the printer off.
b. Open the front cover.
c. Hold down the Continue and the Cancel button while powering the printer on.
d. Release the buttons when the Error light (bottom light) stays on solid.
e. Close the front cover and the printer should return to a READY state.
f. Press and release the continue button to print a network settings page.
g. On the page that prints verify the following:
�� Status = Not Connected
�� Active = Yes
�� DHCP,BOOTP,RARP Enabled = Yes, Yes, Yes
�� Address Source = Manual
�� Address = 0.0.0.0
************************************

The printer took a new IP address from the DHCP server.
Since my goal was to set a fixed IP address, I entered the printer configuration through Internet explorer, typing the newly assumed IP address and going to TCP/IP settings where I removed The 'Auto DHCP' and I set the IP address I wanted.

What is BOOTP/DHCP?


BOOTP stands for Bootstrap Protocol. DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. Both are mechanisms to dynamically assign an IP address for a TCP/IP client by the server. In this case, the Prestige 310 Internet Access Sharing Router is a BOOTP/DHCP server. Win95 and WinNT clients use DHCP to request an internal IP address, while WFW and WinSock clients use BOOTP. TCP/IP clients may specify their own IP or utilize BOOTP/DHCP to request an IP address.
