What is an embedded Web server?
A Web server provides an environment in which Web programs can run, in much the same way that an
operating system, such as Microsoft® Windows®, provides an environment in which programs can run
on your computer. A Web browser, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, Apple Safari, or Mozilla Firefox,
can show output from a Web server.
Web server resides on a hardware product (such as a printer) in the firmware, rather than
as software that is loaded on a network server.
The advantage of an embedded Web server is that it provides an interface to the product that anyone
who has a network-connected computer and a standard Web browser can open and use. No special
software needs to be installed or configured.
With the HP Embedded Web Server (HP EWS), you can view product status information, change
settings, and manage the product at your computer.
In this guide, the terms "product" and "device" are used interchangeably. When products
or devices are discussed in this guide, the information pertains to HP LaserJet printers or
multifunction peripherals (MFPs), or HP Digital Senders. For specific information about the
features that your printer, MFP, or digital sender supports, see the documentation that came with
your product.
You can use the HP EWS to view product and network status and to manage printing functions from
your computer, rather than at the product control panel. With the HP EWS, you can perform these tasks:
Upload firmware updates.
View control-panel messages and product-status information.
Determine the remaining life for all supplies and configure specific ordering information for supplies.
Gain access to the product's technical support page.
Gain access to specific support for recent product events.
Add up to five additional links or customize links to other Web sites.
View and change product configuration, such as tray configurations.
View and change network configuration.
View and print information pages, such as the Configuration page.
