Finding Printer IP

Hi Experts,

I have a printer on the network at the other end of the country, with no user with knowledge of finding the IP address, on our print server, the printer has been installed through a wizard where I cannot see the IP Address, anyone got any cleaver suggestions on how to get this? see attachment

Download and run an IP Scanner from a machine on the network.

I use Angry IP:
http://angryip.org/download/#windows

Or you can talk the user through checking the IP Address on the printer itself.

hi

What printer is it? It should have a 'Print Configuration Page' option locally on the device. If a local user prints that off it should display the IP address of the unit.

Hope that helps.

Thanks
Mark

Check the DHCP server on that site. It should show you the leases it has given out, and if it is a reserved IP, then is should also list the reservations.

As you're using WSD and looks like you can remote into a local client can you try simply right-clicking on the printer icon and choosing Properties.  Do you see a tab for Web Services?  IP should be listed at the top.

Either a IP scanner or install spiceworks and configure it to do  a network scan I like solarwinds IP tracker.  Then you will have a list of devices that can be 'seen' on network.  But a lot of those 'wizard' installs then have a service that will update the IP address of the printer as it will be updated by the network DHCP server so you should also be able to check DHCP leases to determine printers current IP address (I would then put in a reservation for the printers MAC address so IP address won't change in the future)
