Solved!

EWS Color Laser MFP 179fnw admin password

HP Recommended
Color Laser MFP 179fnw
macOS 10.15 Catalina

I just bought and installed a Color Laser MFP 179fnw. When I tried to access its EWS, it asked me for a userid and password. The manual would say "admin" with no password. It did not work. I tried many combinations, none worked. I found in the Internet that  a PIN (or password) was supposedly printed in the printer's label. None there. How can I find an administrator's user name and password for my printer (repeat: unpacked and installed just  today, no other hands on it than mine).

Thanks

Thanks a lot! You solved my problem in an instant. Question: why was the freshly downloaded manual so out of date, when the change to be done was so simple?
