Identifying the printer eSF version


Embedded solutions framework (eSF) defines and identifies the software architecture for differing product generations. Generational differences in this framework can mean changes to an app navigation, configuration, features, and capability.

Where is "eSF" usually referenced?

  • Application flash files, for example, IdleScreen_e4-3.11.0.fls, e4 represents eSF v4.x printers.
  • Administrator's Guides, for example, "This setting is compatible with eTask2+, eTask3, and eTask4 frameworks."
  • User Guides, for example,"The Setup Scan to Network feature is available for use to eSF v4.x printers only."
  • App Readme files

Identifying the eSF version

There are two ways to identify the eSF version:

  • Print a Menu Settings page and look under Embedded Solutions.
  • In the Embedded Web Server (EWS), navigate to Reports > Device Settings via the (EWS) by following the steps below:
    1. Enter the IP Address into the Internet browser's URL field; e.g., http://IP_Address, where IP_Address is the TCP/IP address of the printer.

    2. Click Reports.

    3. Click Device Settings (Menu Settings).

    4. Scroll down the page until you see Embedded Solutions (usually found near the bottom).

    5. Take note of the version next to Framework.

eSF version 3 example:

Obtaining the TCP/IP address

Note:  Read this only if you do not know how to identify your printer's IP address.

The following are the general steps for accessing the TCP/IP address from the control panel.

  1. Tap Menus button.

  2. Tap Network/Ports.

  3. Tap Std Network.

  4. Tap Std. Net Setup.

  5. Tap TCP/IP.

  6. Tap IP Address.

  7. Take note of the IP address.

Note:  The Menus button in this example may not exist on your model and Std. Network may be read Network 1 if a network option card is active on your printer. Optionally, you can print a network settings page to obtain the TCP/IP address.
