How to Configure a Toshiba Estudio Printer for Network Printingby Kyle McBride
Toshiba Corp. manufactures and markets mid-range, multi-function office machines under the eStudio line, which can be connected to your network and used as network printers. These 20 to 45 copy-per-minute machines have on-board computer network functionality and can be configured similar to a PC. The machines are assigned a dynamic IP addressing or set with a static IP address, depending on what your network requires. In additon to TCP/IP addressing (IPv4 and IPv6), the eStudio can also be configured for Netware and Appletalk.
Press the "User Functions" button on the upper left area of the control panel.
Touch the "Admin" button on the touch-screen.
Enter the administrator password on the QWERTY keyboard on the touch-screen, then touch "Enter."
Touch the "Network" button on the touch-screen.
Press the "IPv4" button on the touch-screen. Set the appropriate address mode--Dynamic or Static. Enter the IP address, Subnet Mask and Gateway address, if using Static. Touch the "Enter" button.
Touch the "Apply Now" button on the touch-screen. The machine will display "Network Initializing" while the network interface card initializes.
Press the "Function Clear" button on the control panel to return to the default display.
- If the administrator's password has not been set prior, the default password from the factory is "123456" or "12345," depending on your model of eStudio machine.
- For Netware and Appletalk, touch the appropriate selection in Step 5 instead of IPv4, then input the required network configuration for your network.
