Page 55 of the manual I referenced, Bryan (Ethernet Interface User’s Manual). Once to get to the options, you *scroll* through the numbers until you get to the one you want. You select one octet at a time. It is tedious but only has to be done once.

I got that far but how do you input the numbers being that there's no numpad on the printer? That's my problem. I tried all combinations of scroll and arrow keys and can't figure it out.

Press STOP
SCROLL to 'Ethernet Parameters' (only appears of ethernet feature is installed)
SCROLL till you see option to set IP ADDRESS, etc.

Subject: How to enter number using IBM 6400 printer control panel

How can I enter numbers with the control panel on an IBM 6400 printer so I can set an IP address and subnet? I need to override the 000.000.000 addresses. This printer has always had a twinax interface but I installed an axis card and I need to set the address. This is my first IBM 6400 twinax to Ethernet experience.
