Configuring Network Printing: A guide to setting up Sharp copiers for network printing, including IP settings and connectivity troubleshooting.

To configure network printing for Sharp copiers like the MX-Copiers, including IP settings and troubleshooting connectivity, you can follow these steps:

IP Configuration:

  • IP Settings: The IP address can be obtained automatically using DHCP/BOOTP, or it can be manually entered. To set the IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway, access the system settings and navigate to "Network Settings" or "IPv4 Settings"​​.

Connectivity Troubleshooting:

  • Ping Command: To check if the copier can communicate with other network devices, use the ping command in the system settings. Enter the IP address of the desired device and execute the command. If the copier does not respond, ensure that the IP settings are correct and check for physical connection issues like faulty cables​​.

  • Network Name Settings: Make sure the device name and domain name are configured correctly​​.

Additional Network Settings:

  • DNS Settings: Configure the primary and secondary DNS servers, along with the domain name where the DNS servers reside​​.

  • Proxy Settings: If the copier uses a proxy server, set the server address, user name, password, and port number. Also, specify addresses where the proxy shouldn't be used, if required​​.

Connectivity Modes:

  • Connection Types: Sharp copiers offer different modes, including "Wired Only", "Wired+Wireless (Access Point Mode)", or "Wireless (Infrastructure Mode)". Ensure the correct mode is selected based on your network configuration​​.

Wireless Connectivity:

  • If you're using wireless connectivity, set the SSID, security type, encryption, and security key. The system settings allow you to search for access points and set security parameters like WPA/WPA2-mixed or WPA2 Enterprise​​.
