UMS5 IP adress keeps changing

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 


I've been working with two S5 for a while now. Something that I cannot fix is the fact that the IP address of the printers is changing constantly, which means that I cannot send prints over the network or monitor them. It is not a huge inconvenience but it would be nice if this works!


How can I fix this?

Do you have access to your DHCP server configuration? (For home setups, this would typically be the router configuration page). If so, you can find out the MAC addresses of your printers, and then reserve a specific IP address  for each printer.

@P3D , nope. I use the printers for work and my company is quite large so we have a separate IT department. Do you think I can adress this question to them?


Yes, ask them if they can do this.

Yes, IT should be able to do this easily.  Tell them you want DHCP to issue a static address or at least make the "lease" longer - say 1 year before the address changes.  Yes the MAC address is in the network settings and it's also repeated in there kind of in a hidden way on the same display screen that shows the MAC address (if you aren't able to get an IP address the MAC address isn't shown but it's still there in one of the other parameters).

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
