The remote control panel on your computer screen lets you interact with the printer control panel, even when you are not physically near the network printer. From your computer screen, you can view the printer status and do print-related tasks you might normally do while standing at the network printer.
Open a Web browser, and then type the printer IP address in the address field.
- Print a network setup page or menu settings page, and then locate the IP address in the TCP/IP section. The IP address appears as four sets of numbers separated by periods, such as 126.96.36.199.
- If you are using a proxy server, then temporarily disable it to load the Web page correctly.
Press Enter to open the Web page of your printer.
Note: The remote control panel requires a Java plug‑in to launch.
