I used to connect printer's website for usage checking,

However, sometimes I can't connect the printer's website.

I can connect target printer with telnet( port : 80 ), but, i cannot connect target printer with web browser...


belows are follow TCP Stream result

 GET / HTTP/1.1
 Accept: text/html, application/xhtml+xml, */*
 Accept-Language: ko-KR
 User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; MSIE 10.0; Windows NT 6.2; WOW64; Trident/6.0; TCO_20170914171800)
 Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate
 Connection: Keep-Alive

Interesting trace file.

Most remarkable, the client is sending two identical HTTP requests over two separate TCP connections simultaneously. Pairs of the TCP connections are source ports 24409 / 244010 and 24414 / 24415. Please let us know, if this is due to some trace file sanitation, or the real behavior.

A couple of other things to look for:

  • What happens, if you use a different browser? This would allow us to check if the HTTP server is confused by the user-agent.
  • The HTTP request references an IP address. What happens, if you send the HTTP request using the hostname configured for the printer?

It solved by 3rd-party company which deployed our network system. maybe cause by wrong configuration for routing setting. thank you.!

You can actually connect using a browser also. Th e3-way handshake succeeds so there is an active listener at the printer. However the HTTP GET doesn't specify any file to get. I suggest you try
and report the results
