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's navigation, configuration, features and capability.

Identifying eSF version
You can print a Menu Settings page and look under Embedded Solutions.
Or, you can view Reports > Device Settings via the embedded Web server (EWS):
- 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.
- Click Reports.
- Click Device Settings (Menu Settings).
- Scroll down the page until you see Embedded Solutions (usually found near the bottom).
- Take note of the version next to Framework.
eSF version 3 example:
Obtaining TCP/IP address
Read this only if you do not know how to identify your printer's IP address.
General steps for accessing the TCP/IP address from the control panel:
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.
