The IP address is usually assigned by your router using DHCP. I assume you are trying to print to the printer from your PC and it won't go. Go into your router using IE and look for the IP address assigned to the printer and write it down. Exit IE.

Next, go into Control Panel>Printers and choose the IBM printer. Go to Properties and choose Configure Port. Enter the correct IP address, hit apply and exit. You should be able to print to the IBM now.

Hi !!

There is no 'standard' way of doing this - it varies from printer to
printer.
Typically a network printer can be set to get its IP address from a DHCP
server. I guess yours cannot.

Here's what you need to do:
Change your DHCP scope to 192.168.1.2 - 192.168.1.249
we'll reserve 192.168.1.250 for your copier/printer

Telnet into your copier/printer
At a command prompt enter the following command:
telnet 195.195.195.x
Substitute x with the proper value

You should see something like the following:
Welcome to XXXXXX-X

Enter username, or HELP

Enter su

At the Server prompt, enter su again
at the password prompt enter system

"system" is default super user password which does not echo back

Server

to define Subnet Mask enter:
serverdefine subnet 255.255.255.0

to define ip:
serverdefine ip 192.168.1.250

to verify:
servershow server config port 1

to logout:
serverlogout

Hope this will help !!!

Regard's

I need to add IBM Infoprint 1116 to my home network using IP address. How can I change already setted IP and gatway addresses on it to needed?


If you know ip address of printer then you can access your printer with web interface for that type your printer ip address in internet explorer address bar.
then you can access configuration of printer.
But if you don't know ip then you need to check network configuration menu of printer .
For that press menu button of printer then enter in network settings then you can know the printer ip address.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a 30H4054 and need to change the IP address


After moving to a new location that had a new IP address, I found I was unable to change the IP address within the 30H4054 so we took the printer back to where it was installed and working before and someone changed the IP address there then brought it back to my new location. So ....have the IP address changed before you move.
