How to Access Embedded Web Server On HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

EWS - What is an embedded Web Server
A Web server provides an environment in which Web programs can run, in much the same way that an operating system, such as Microsoft Windows, provides an environment in which programs can run on your computer. A Web browser, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, Apple Safari, or Mozilla Firefox, can show output from a Web server.

An embedded Web server resides on a hardware product (such as a printer) in the firmware, rather than as software that is loaded on a network server.

The advantage of an embedded Web server is that it provides an interface to the product that anyone who has a network-connected computer and a standard Web browser can open and use. No special software needs to be installed or configured. How to Access Embedded Web Server On HP OfficeJet Pro 8730...?
