Using the Embedded Web Server

Using the embedded web server
The embedded web server can be directly accessed on the HP LaserJet 1022n and HP LaserJet 1022nw printers. Software does not need to be installed on the computer; only a supported web browser is needed. To use the embedded web server, Apple Safari, Microsoft Internet Explorer V5.5 or later, or Netscape Navigator V4.75 or later is required.
The embedded web server does not provide E-mail or status alerts.
The embedded web server is available in English only.
The embedded web server allows the user to view printer and network status and to manage printing functions from a computer instead of from the printer control panel. Below are examples of the functions that can be performed using the embedded web server:
  • View printer status information
  • View and print internal pages
  • Order new supplies
  • Set the type of paper loaded in each tray
  • View and change the printer default configuration settings
  • View and change network configuration
The embedded web server works when the printer is connected to an IP-based network. The embedded web server does not support IPX-based printer connections.
Internet access is not required to open and use the embedded web server. However, if a link is clicked in the Other Links area, Internet access is required to go to the site associated with the link.
Open the embedded web server
  1. In a supported web browser, type the IP address or hostname for the printer. To find the IP address, print a Configuration page at the printer by pressing and holding the Go button for 5 seconds.
    If the HP Jetdirect print server is at its default IP address (169.254.x.x,, or use a "route add" command from the command prompt to add the IP address of the HP Jetdirect to the route table of the computer. The default IP address of an HP Jetdirect Print Server will usually be either 169.254.x.x or For example, if the HP Jetdirect print server default is and the computer's IP address is, the route add command would be:
    1. Using a supported Web browser, enter the IP address of the HP Jetdirect print server as you would a URL.
    2. The HP Jetdirect main Web page will be displayed. Click Networking, Network Settings, and then TCP/IP or click Administration and then Configuration. From this page, it is possible to modify the TCP/IP addresses and the set community name.
    For more complete information on HP Jetdirect configuration see the document, How to Determine, Reset, and Configure an IP Address on an HP Jetdirect Print Server (http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&objectID=bpj02738).
  2. The embedded web server has three tabs that contain settings and information about the printer: the Information tab, the Settings tab, and the Networking tab. Click the tab that you want to view.
Once you open the URL, you can bookmark it so that you can return to it quickly in the future.
Information tab
The Information tab consists of the following pages:
  • Device Status: This page displays product information such as the network name, network address, and model information.
  • Configuration: This page shows the information found on the printer Configuration page.
Settings tab
This tab allows you to configure the printer settings from your computer, such as default paper size and EconoMode. If this printer is networked, always consult with the printer administrator before changing the settings on this tab.
Networking tab
This tab allows the network administrator to control network-related settings for the printer when it is connected to an IP-based network.
