Limiting by Using a MAC Address (MAC Address Filtering)

You can control access to the machine by using a MAC address. You can allow for or reject access from a specified MAC address.


Be sure to specify the correct MAC address. An incorrect entry of a MAC address does not allow for access to the machine from a network.

  1. Open the Web page of this machine.

    Open the Web Page of This Machine

  2. Log in as the administrator.

  3. Select [Admin Setup].

  4. Select [Network] > [Security] > [MAC Address Filtering].

  5. Specify detailed settings by following the on-screen instructions.


    • If nothing is registered in [Administrator's MAC Address to Register], access to the machine may not be allowed depending on the specified MAC address.

    • If you use a proxy server, [Your Current Local Host/Proxy MAC Address] and the MAC address of your host may not match.

  6. Click [Submit].

    The new settings take effect when the network function of this machine restarts.


You cannot specify to accept or to reject for each address.
