HP Printers - Using the HP Embedded Web Server (EWS)

This document is for network-connected HP printers.
Use the HP Embedded Web Server (EWS) to manage your network-connected printer through an Internet browser. No additional software or drivers are required.
Common EWS features:
  • View ink or toner levels
  • Set a manual IP address
  • Access Web Services
  • Adjust default print settings

Open the EWS

Obtain your printer IP address, and then type it into an Internet browser on a computer or mobile device to access the EWS.
  1. Make sure your printer is connected to the same network as your computer or mobile device.
  2. Obtain the printer IP address, the unique identification number assigned to the printer on the network.
    On printers with touchscreen or menu-based control panels, find the IP address in the Wireless menu or in network settings. For printers without a control panel menu, print a network configuration page to obtain the IP address.
    Example of the IP address on a printer control panel
  3. Type the IP address into the Internet browser address line, and then press Enter to open the printer EWS.
    Example of an IP address entered into the Chrome address bar
  4. If a website security certificate displays, click Continue.
  5. On the EWS, review the menu options to determine the features available for your printer.
    note:
    When you access the EWS from a mobile device, you might not be able to access all available features, such as Webscan.
