To open the embedded web server
The embedded web server (EWS) places very small text files (cookies) on your hard drive when
you are browsing. These files let the EWS recognize your computer the next time you visit. For
Printer management tools
example, if you have configured the EWS language, a cookie helps remember which language
you have selected so that the next time you access the EWS, the pages are displayed in that
language. Though some cookies are cleared at the end of each session (such as the cookie that
stores the selected language), others (such as the cookie that stores customer-specific
preferences) are stored on the computer until you clear them manually.
You can configure your browser to accept all cookies, or you can configure it to alert you every
time a cookie is offered, which allows you to decide which cookies to accept or refuse. You can
also use your browser to remove unwanted cookies.
NOTE: Depending on your printer, if you disable cookies, you also disable one or more of
the following features:
Starting where you left the application (especially useful when using setup wizards)
Remembering the EWS browser language setting
Personalizing the EWS Home page
