WorkForce Pro: How to backup and restore a printer configuration

This article will explain how to back up your printer’s configuration using Epson Device Admin

Which tool can I use to back up a printer configuration?

To back up the printer configuration we recommend using Epson Device Admin.

This tool allows you to create configuration templates from existing devices, you can restore those templates later on the same device or on other devices, even on different models.

Note:

Only settings supported by the printer can be changed.


Can I use EpsonNet Config or the Webconfig to save the printer configuration?

The Epson Workforce Pro WF-8010, WF-8090, WF-8510, WF-8590 and R8590 do not allow saving and restoring settings using EpsonNet Config or from the webconfig page. You need to use the Epson Device Admin tool to do a backup.

Note:

EpsonNet Config can only manage the backup and restoration of the contact list.

  1. to backup the contact list, open the Printer configuration from EpsonNet Config
  2. In the Contacts section, you can Import or Export the contact list (see the example below)
