ip.dhcp.cid_value
ip.dhcp.cid_value

ip.dhcp.cid_value

This parameter defines the unique value to be used as the client identifier (option 61) if DHCP is enabled and
"ip.dhcp.cid_type"
is
"1"
.
This parameter is only applicable if
ip.dhcp.cid_enable
is set to
"on"
.

Setvar

To instruct the printer to change the CID value:
! U1 setvar "ip.dhcp.cid_value" "value"
Values
Any text string up to 20 characters in length.
Default
If
ip.dhcp.cid_type
is set to:
  • "0"
    the default is the printer’s friendly name.
  • "1"
    the default is the MAC address of the printer.

Getvar

To instruct the printer to respond with the client identifier value:
! U1 getvar "ip.dhcp.cid_value"
Example
This
setvar
example changes the cid value to
"PRT001"
.
! U1 setvar "ip.dhcp.cid_value" "PRT001"
The next time the printer sends a DHCP request, if
ip.dhcp.cid_type
is
"0"
, the client identifier sent will be
ip.dhcp.cid_prefix
plus
"PRT001".
For example, if
ip.dhcp.cid_prefix
is
"ZEB"
, the actual client identifier sent will be
"ZEBPRT001"
.
