HP PageWide Pro 750, MFP 772, 777 - HP Embedded Web Server

About the EWS

This product is equipped with the HP Embedded Web Server (EWS), which provides access to information about product and network activities. EWS serves up webpages that can be viewed in a standard web browser.
The EWS resides on a hardware device (such as an HP  printer) or in firmware, rather than as software that is loaded on a network server.
The advantage of the EWS is that it provides an interface to the product that anyone with a network-connected product and computer can use. There is no special software to install or configure, but you must have a supported web browser on the computer. To gain access to the EWS, type the IP address for the product in the address bar of the browser.

About cookies

The EWS places very small text files (cookies) on your hard drive when you are browsing. These files let the EWS recognize your computer the next time you visit. For example, if you have configured the EWS language, a cookie helps remember which language you have selected so that the next time you access the EWS, the pages are displayed in that language. Though some cookies are cleared at the end of each session (such as the cookie that stores the selected language), others (such as the cookie that stores customer-specific preferences) are stored on the computer until you clear them manually.
note:
The cookies that the EWS stores on your computer are used only for saving settings on your computer or for sharing information between the printer and the computer. These cookies are not sent to any HP websites.
You can configure your browser to accept all cookies, or you can configure it to alert you every time a cookie is offered, which allows you to decide which cookies to accept or refuse. You can also use your browser to remove unwanted cookies.
Depending on your printer, if you disable cookies, you also disable one or more of the following features:
  • Starting where you left the application (especially useful when using setup wizards).
  • Remembering the EWS browser language setting.
  • Personalizing the EWS home page.
For information about how to change your privacy and cookie settings and how to view or delete cookies, see the documentation available with your web browser.

Open the EWS

To open the EWS, do one of the following:
  • In a supported web browser, type the product IP address into the address box. (To obtain the IP address, on the control panel dashboard, touch [Ethernet].)
  • In the printer software, open the HP Printer Assistant and on the Print tab, click Printer Home Page (EWS).
    In the printer software, open the HP Printer Assistant and on the Print tab, of the Print, Scan & Fax tab, click Printer Home Page (EWS).
    For more information, see Open the HP Printer Assistant.
  • In OS X, use HP Utility or click System Preferences > Printers > HP PageWide Pro MFP 772-777 > Options & Supplies > General > Show Printer Webpage.
    In OS X, use HP Utility or click System Preferences > Printers & Scanners > HP PageWide Pro MFP 772-777 > Options & Supplies > General > Show Printer Webpage.
note:
If an error occurs while opening the EWS, confirm that the proxy settings are correct for your network.
note:
After you open the URL, bookmark it so that you can return to it quickly in the future.

Changing network settings in the EWS might disable some product or product software features.
