General network settings
The following table describes the general network settings shown on the network
Network Status Status of the HP All-in-One:
Ready: the HP All-in-One is ready to receive or transmit data.
Offline: the HP All-in-One is not currently connected to the
Network mode of the HP All-in-One:
Wired: the HP All-in-One is connected by Ethernet cable to an
IEEE 802.3 network.
None: There is no network connection.
Only one connection type can be active at a time.
The web or IP address of the Embedded Web Server.
You will need to know this URL when you try to access the
Embedded Web Server.
The Media Access Control (MAC) address that identifies the
HP All-in-One. This is a unique 12-digit identification number
assigned to networking hardware for identification. No two pieces
of hardware have the same MAC address.
Some Internet service providers (ISPs) require that you
register the MAC address of the Network Card or LAN Adapter
that was connected to your cable or DSL modem during installation.
The internal networking component and device firmware revision
code separated by a hyphen.
If you call in for support, depending on the problem, you
might be asked to provide the firmware revision code.
The TCP/IP name assigned by the install software to the device.
By default, this is the letters HP followed by the last 6 digits of the
This address uniquely identifies the device on the network. IP
addresses are assigned dynamically through DHCP or AutoIP.
You can also set up a static IP address, though this is not
Manually assigning an invalid IP address during install will
prevent your network components from seeing the HP All-in-One.
A subnet is an IP address assigned by the install software to make
an additional network available as part of a larger network.
Subnets are specified by a subnet mask. This mask determines
HP Officejet 7200 All-in-One series
which of the HP All-in-One IP address bits identify the network and
subnet, and which bits identify the device itself.
It is recommended that the HP All-in-One and the
computers that use it all reside on the same subnet.
A node on a network that serves as an entrance to another
network. A node in this instance can be a computer or some other
The address of the default gateway is assigned by the
The protocol used to assign the IP address to the HP All-in-One:
AutoIP: the installation software automatically determines the
DHCP: the configuration parameters are supplied by a
dynamic host configuration protocol (DHCP) server on the
network. On small networks, this could be a router.
Manual: the configuration parameters are set manually, such
as a static IP address.
Not Specified: the mode used when the HP All-in-One is
The IP address of the domain name service (DNS) for the network.
When you use the web or send an e-mail message, you use a
domain name to do it. For example, the URL http://www.hp.com
contains the domain name hp.com. The DNS on the Internet
translates the domain name into an IP address. Devices use the
IP addresses to refer to one another.
IP Address: the IP address of the domain name server.
Not Specified: the IP address is not specified, or the device is
Check to see if a DNS IP address appears on the network
configuration page. If no address is shown, obtain the DNS IP
address from your Internet service provider (ISP).
Rendezvous is used with local and ad hoc networks that don't use
central DNS servers. To perform name services, Rendezvous
uses a DNS alternative called mDNS.
With mDNS, your computer can find and use any HP All-in-One
connected to your local area network. It can also work with any
other Ethernet-enabled device that appears on the network.
Status of the administrator's password for the Embedded Web
Set: password is specified. You must enter the password to
make changes to the Embedded Web Server parameters.
Not Set: no password is set. A password is not required for
making changes to the Embedded Web Server parameters.
The speed at which data is transmitted over a network:
10TX-Full: for wired network.
10TX-Half: for wired network.
100TX-Full: for wired network.
100TX-Half: for wired network.
None: networking is disabled.
