OKI Printing Solutions printers have built in web servers!
Making management of printers as simple as it can possibly be and platform independent as well!
A user has installed an OKI Printing Solutions printer and plugged it into the network and needs it to be configured by the network administrator
The printer has stopped working and the network administrator needs to find out why
The printer has run out of toner and the network administrator needs to be informed
The network configuration needs changing
The network administrator is on another floor/in another building/in another country and is attending someone else's PC at the time!
No problem if OKI Printing Solutions network printers have been installed. Inside all network printers with network cards, there is a built in web server. All the elusive administrator need do is go to his nearest PC, MAC or other computer and run a standard web browser and punch in the IP address of the printer concerned.
Connection will then be made directly to the web server in the printer where various functions can be performed:
View the status of the printer
Network configuration change
Alerts configuration - the printer can send an email to the adminstrator(s) when it needs consumables or experiences an error.
Printer menu configuration changes such as paper size, type, colour settings etc.
View usage rates or current consumables status
and many many more functions.
