HP CM8060/CM8050 Color MFP with Edgeline Technology - Use the embedded Web server

The embedded Web server (EWS) provides a method for managing most device functions from a computer that is on the same network as the device. Some device-configuration features are available in the embedded Web server that are not available at the device control panel. For example, the only way to enable the Network Folders digital-sending feature is to use the embedded Web server.
A summary of all the embedded Web server features follows this introduction. Examples of tasks that you can perform by using the embedded Web server include the following:
  • View the current device and supplies status.
  • Print device information pages.
  • Print a file that is on the network.
  • View and change device configuration settings.
  • Set up the digital sending features for the device.
  • Set up users and groups who have access to the device.
  • Configure permission sets for users and groups.
  • Configure sign-in methods.
  • Restrict color printing and copying.
  • Set up Internet and LAN fax features.
  • Import e-mail addresses or fax speed dials from other sources.
  • Configure automatic alerts for device conditions that you specify.
  • Configure the AutoSend feature, which you can use to send device-configuration and usage information to your service provider.
  • Set up a sleep schedule for the device.
  • Install third-party software packages.
  • Configure the embedded HP Jetdirect print server.
The embedded Web server feature requires at least 48 MB of RAM in order to connect to the network.
The embedded Web server works when the device is connected to an IP-based network. The embedded Web server does not support IPX-based device connections. The computer does not need Internet access to open the embedded Web server; however, some links within the embedded Web server require an Internet connection.
To open the embedded Web server, open a supported Web browser, and type the device network address or hostname in the address line. See Open the embedded Web server.
note:
To find the network address or hostname, go to the device control panel. Touch Network Address, and touch Print to print an HP Jetdirect configuration page. The network address or hostname is on that page.

Settings tab
Feature
Description
Configure Device
This page contains many of the same menus as the Administration feature on the device control panel.
Notification server
Use this page to set up the SMTP server for sending device e-mail alerts (set up on the Alerts page). To enable the server, select Enable Outgoing E-mail. For more information, see Set up the notification server.
Also use this page to set values for an incoming POP3 e-mail server if you want to permit remote requests and commands to be sent to the device. To enable the sever, select Enable Incoming E-mail.
Alerts
Set up the option to receive e-mail alerts for various device and supplies events. You can send these alerts to a list of up to 20 e-mail, mobile device, or Web site destinations.
For more information about this feature, see Set up Alerts.
AutoSend
Periodically send device-configuration and usage information to your service provider. This feature establishes a relationship with Hewlett-Packard Company, or another service provider, to provide you with services that include proactive cartridge replacement, support agreements, and usage tracking.
For more information about this feature, see Set up AutoSend.
General Security
Set a password that must be provided for access to the Settings, Digital Sending, and Networking tabs of the EWS. For more information, see Set the device administrator password.
Select Disable Direct Ports if you want users to be able to print only by using a network connection.
Clear the box next to Print Page to disable the option to send a file for printing directly from the embedded Web server.
Device Sign In
Configure a default sign-in method to permit access to the device. Specify a network sign-in method so you can use existing access permissions defined on the network.
Configure whether certain device features require a user to sign in before using them by creating permission sets. You can configure permission sets based on specific parameters. For example, you could create a permission set to allow printing and copying in color.
Use the Users/Groups page to set up individual or group user accounts and to assign permission sets to individual users or groups of users.
For more information and specific procedures, see Control access to the device.
Restrict Color/Limits
  • Restrict Color tab: Enable or disable color printing and copying for all users, or enable it for users who have certain permission sets. You can also control whether jobs sent from certain software programs can be printed in color. See Restrict color use.
  • Limits tab: You can enable limits on the number of total pages and color pages that a user is allowed to print in a specific time period. A color page limit can not be set greater than the total page limit. Limits are applied to permission sets and are associated with individual users or groups of network users. See Restrict color use.
    note:
    It is recommend that the device be configured such that a user must sign in to be able to operate the device from the control panel when limits are enabled. This ensures that limit restrictions are correctly recorded for individual users or groups of network users.
Edit Other Links
Add or customize a link to another Web site. This link is shown in the Other Links area on all embedded Web server pages. The Product Support link always appears in the Other Links area. To access any link in this area, the computer must have Internet access.
Device Information
Name the device and assign an asset number to it. Type the name of the primary contact who will receive information about the device.
Language
Specify the language in which to show the embedded Web server information.
Date & Time
In the Device Time area, set the correct date and time for the device. Click Advanced to set the time zone, the time format, and the date format. You can also set the device to automatically adjust for daylight savings time if applicable to your location. After the time is set, the device's real-time clock maintains the accurate time.
In the Network Time Server area, you can set the device to use a network time server, if one is available, to maintain the current time. Using a network time server produces more accurate results than using the device's real-time clock. Click Advanced to open a page where you can provide the information necessary for the device to use the network time server.
For more information and specific procedures, see Set the date and time.
Sleep Schedule
Set the time at which the device should enter and exit sleep mode each day. You can also configure a sleep schedule for holidays.
Use this page to set the time delay for sleep mode.
For more information and specific procedures, see Set up a sleep schedule.
Backup and Restore
Use this page to create a file on your network that includes all the embedded Web server settings for this device. Keep this file in case of device failure.
In the Folder Settings area, indicate the folder on the network where the file should be saved, and provide an encryption key for the file.
In the Authentication Settings area, provide the information that is necessary to authenticate to the network server where the folder is stored.
You can write the settings to this file by clicking Backup, and if needed, you can restore the settings by clicking Restore.
For more information and specific procedures, see Backup and restore settings.
Solution Installer
Use this page to install third-party software packages that can extend or modify the functionality of the device. Click Browse to find the executable file on your network that installs the software, and then click Install. Depending on the solution, the device might automatically restart.
After you install a solution, it appears in the list at the bottom of the page. If you need to remove a solution, select it in the list and then click Remove. The device must restart after you remove a solution.
If you attempt to reinstall a solution without first removing it, you will receive a warning that you are about to overwrite the solution. Click OK to continue, or click Cancel to stop the installation.
