This article explains the various embedded web server (EWS) options found under Paper Setup.

Some printers with this capability:

  • Lexmark S 31x, 41x and 51x Series
  • Lexmark Pro 71x and 91x Series
  • Lexmark Pro 4000 Series
  • Lexmark Pro 5000 Series

An x denotes any number within a given printer model series.

NOTE: Not all EWS settings are available on every printer model. Check your printer's Web page for equivalent settings of those described in this article.


What is an embedded Web server

The easiest way to understand this concept is to imagine that the printer is hosting its own web site.

This web server (site) is stored in the printer's memory, and you view this web site using a Web browser* application.

*Internet browser applications such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Apple Safari, and Mozilla Firefox.


How to access

Enter the printer's IP Address into your Web browser's URL (address) field.


Click here if you need additional help locating your printer's IP address.

HINT: After you successfully open your printer's Web page, it is recommended that you save it as a Favorite or Bookmark for easy access later.
