Caution

About the IP v. 6 address

This printer can have up to seven IP v. 6 addresses of the following types. (Only one address can be registered manually.) IP v. 6 communication allows you to use multiple IP v. 6 addresses simultaneously.

1. Start the Remote UI, and then log in as Administrator.

2. Click [Settings/Registration].

3. Select [Network] from the [Preferences] menu.

4. Click [TCP/IP Settings].

5. Click [Edit...] under [IPv6 Settings].

6. Select the [Use IPv6] check box.

7. Specify the stateless address.

Check the [Use Stateless Address] check box when using a stateless address.

Caution

Stateless Address Retention

After the [Use Stateless Address] check box is selected and the printer is restarted, the stateless address is displayed automatically. This stateless address is discarded when the printer is turned OFF.

8. If you want to use a manual address, specify the following settings.

If you do not want to use a manual address, proceed to Step 9.

(1) Select the [Use Manual Address] check box.

(2) Enter [IP Address].

(3) Enter [Prefix Length].

(4) Enter [Default Router Address] as needed.

Caution

Addresses which cannot be entered in [IP Address] and [Default Router Address]

An address which starts with "ff" (multicast address)
An address which starts with "0:0:"

9. Specify DHCP v. 6.

When using the stateful address, select the [Use DHCPv6] check box.

If you do not want to use the DNS server, proceed to Step 11.

You can specify the following [DNS Settings].

(2) Enter the IP address of the secondary DNS server in [Secondary DNS Server Address].

(3) Set [Host Name] and [Domain Name].

When using a host name and domain name that are different from IPv4, enter [Host Name] and [Domain Name]. You can enter up to 47 alphanumeric characters.
Example of [Domain Name] entry: "example.com"

11. If you want to use DNS Dynamic Update, specify the following settings.

If you do not want to use the DNS server, proceed to Step 12.

(1) Select the [DNS Dynamic Update] check box.

* Using the DNS Dynamic Update function, by registering the [Host Name] and [Domain Name] to the DNS server, the printer's IP address can be used without being fixed.

(2) Set whether to register the IPv6 address to the DNS server during DNS dynamic updates.

If you select the [Register Manual Address] check box, a manual address is registered to the DNS server.
If you select the [Register Stateful Address] check box, a stateful address is registered to the DNS server.
If you select the [Register Stateless Address] check box, a stateless address is registered to the DNS server.
