ip.dhcp.cid_prefix
ip.dhcp.cid_prefix

ip.dhcp.cid_prefix

This printer setting defines the prefix to be prepended to the DHCP client identifier (option 61) when DHCP is enabled and
"ip.dhcp.cid_type"
is set to
"0"
or
"2".

Setvar

To instruct the printer to change the CID prefix:
! U1 setvar "ip.dhcp.cid_prefix" "value"
Values
Any text string up to 10 characters if the CID type is ASCII, or 20 characters if the CID type is hexadecimal.
Default
""

Getvar

To instruct the printer to respond with the client identifier prefix:
! U1 getvar "ip.dhcp.cid_prefix"
Example
This
setvar
example sets the value to
"ZEB"
.
! U1 setvar "ip.dhcp.cid_prefix" "ZEB"
What the
setvar
value is set to is the
getvar
result. In this example, the
getvar
result is
"ZEB"
.
The next time the printer sends a DHCP request, if
ip.dhcp.cid_type
is
"0"
, the client identifier sent will be prefixed with the string
"ZEB"
. For example, if
ip.dhcp.cid_value
is
"PRT001"
, the actual client identifier sent will be
"ZEBPRT001"
.
