For Client ID Settings the choices are Mac Address, User-Defined ASCII, & User-Defined HEX.  Only use these settings if you are using a Client ID for DHCP.

The network settings are then sent to directly to the printer.   You will need to power cycle the printer for them to take effect. 

Note:  You can also highlight and copy the ZPL settings from the screen above and save in a text file for use later.
