How do I find IP address of a network printer?

To find the printer IP address from a Windows machine, perform the following.

    Start -> Printers and Faxes, or Start -> Control Panel -> Printers and Faxes
    Right-click the printer name, and left-click Properties
    Click the Ports tab, and widen the first column which displays IP address of the printers

****If your networked printer uses DHCP, you may connect to your router and find the IP address of the printer from DHCP status page. The router displays all host machines that are assigned dynamic IP addresses.

**** You may also use "netstat -r" command to find an IP address of all network routes. However, if your printer has problem communicating with other network devices, you may not be able to find IP address of the printer using "netstat" command.
