HP CM8060/CM8050 Color MFP with Edgeline Technology - Connect to a network

HP recommends that you use the HP software installer CD that comes with the device to set up the device using the network configurations. You are not required to install additional software if you use the installer. There are two possible network device and printing configurations:
  • The device is connected directly to the network (direct mode or peer-to-peer printing). Each network user prints directly to the network address or hostname of the device. This network configuration is recommended for groups of 10 to 20 users or small offices.
  • The device is connected directly to the network, and a shared print queue is configured on a network server (client-server printing). This shared print queue spools directly to the device by using a network port. This network configuration is recommended for larger workgroups of more than 30 users, and it allows the administrator the option to control driver settings on client computers.
Connection requirements
  • Requires a network connection on the device or an internal or external print server.
Information required during software setup
  • The device network address or hostname. From the Home screen on the control panel, touch Network Address.
  • Specify a device share name. (Optional)
Installation overview
  • Hardware setup – plug the device directly into the network by using a minimum 26 AWG network cable.
  • Insert the CD that came with the device and follow the installation steps for each client computer to enable printing.
Use the following steps to connect the device to a network and to configure the network printing options. Configuring a shared print queue is optional, and is described in steps 9 and 10.
Installation steps
  1. Plug one end of a network cable into the Embedded LAN (RJ-45) interface port and plug the other end of the network cable into the network.
  2. Turn the device on and wait for the initialization process to complete and for a network address or hostname to be assigned. From the Home screen on the control panel, touch Network Address to find the network address or hostname. Touch Print to print the information.
      note:
    To manually assign a network address, follow the instructions in the note in step 7.
  3. Insert the CD that came with the device. The software installer should start without assistance. If it does not, browse to the SETUP.EXE file in the root directory of the CD and double-click it.
  4. Select the language that you would like the installer to use, and accept the license agreement to continue.
  5. On the Printer Connection screen, select Wired Networking.
  6. On the Printers Found screen, select which device to install.
  7. On the Confirm Settings screen, verify the device settings.
      note:
    To manually change the network address of the device, click Change Settings on the Confirm Settings screen and follow the prompts.
  8. On the Installation Type screen, select the type of installation that you want to perform.
  9. (Optional) On the Printer Sharing screen, click the Printer Sharing button and follow the prompts.
  10. (Optional) If you are sharing the device with other computers that are running different operating systems from the one that you are using, add these drivers on the Client Driver Support screen after the device is installed by doing the following:
    1. Highlight the device and then click File.
    2. Click Properties.
    3. On the Sharing tab, select Additional Drivers and then point to the desired drivers.
  11. For Windows 2000 and XP, you can provide a location and descriptive information.
  12. On the Ready to Install screen, click Install and allow the installation to complete.
