HP office jet 8720
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I want to assign an static IP address as my printer is always going off line. I need to make sure I can access the ews page to do so when I try to use a browser to reach it using the ip address for my pc  It won't access it. I need to grant permission for it to do so so my fire wall won't block it is this the trouble?

While the printer is "online", that is, on the network, access the EWS for it using the IP address of the printer.


Example - Officejet Pro 8630 > Network

Settings are perhaps a bit different in the 8720 but should be recognizable.
