Expiring Self-Signed Certificate

HP Recommended
HP Color LaserJet Enterprise CM4540 MFP series
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

We have a network printer (HP Color LaserJet Enterprise CM4540 MFP series), and users that use a local-account for accessing an application. They have to contact us once a month to remove and reconnect to the printer, and we've concluded it is because the self-signed cert has expired and needs to be "renewed" by removing and reconnecting to the printer.

 

Would I be able to manually install a self-signed certificate exported from the printer's EWS to remove the need for removing and reconnecting to the printer?

 

Thank you for your time, I appreciate any assistance.

Hello

Yes, you can renew the self-signed certificate of the printer. Here are the instructions.

Open the EWS page of the printer.

Click on Networking Tab - If EWS is locked with username and password, please sign in to see the Networking tab.

Click on Autorization.

Certificates > Jetdirect Certificate > Click on Configure.

Select Create New Self-Signed Certificate > Click Next.

Select the RSA Key Length, Signature Algorithm.

Click on Edit Settings to change the validity period > Set number of days for validity and apply.

Click finish.

 

I hope this information helps.

Good Luck!
