If No Connected Projectors Appear
Creating Connection Groups
You can register projectors that are frequently accessed via the network
into a single group. EMP NS Connection can register up to a maximum of
16 projectors in a single group.
For example, if you have a network where projectors in all branch offices
are connected and you would like to project images from projectors at
branch offices in a specific area, you can register the projectors at all
branch offices in that specific area into a single group. Once a group has
been registered, you can connect to the projectors in the specified area
simply by selecting that particular group, which eliminates the need to
search for projectors and connect them one by one.
Group information can be written (exported) to a file and loaded
(imported) from that file. In this way, a network administrator can create
and export different groups of projectors, and then the other users can
import the groups of projectors that need to be connected to, making it
easier to connect to the required projectors.

Security Countermeasures for Wireless LAN
Because wireless LANs use radio signals to send and receive data, they have
the advantage of allowing a device to connect to the network easily as long as
they are within range to receive the signals.
A disadvantage of this is that the radio signals can pass through barriers such
as walls, so that if security countermeasures are not implemented in some way,
transmissions can be intercepted and outsiders can get unauthorised access to
the network even without using special tools.
The following security functions are provided in order to solve such problems.
• Data encryption
Data is encrypted before it is transmitted. Even if data is intercepted, it
cannot be opened and viewed.
• Connection limitations (authentication)
A username and password are registered beforehand so that only registered
wireless LAN terminals can connect to the network, in order to prevent
unauthorised third parties from connecting to the network.
• Firewall
Prevent unauthorized access from outside of the LAN by blocking off
unused ports.
The security functions used by this projector vary depending on the mode used
to connect to the wireless LAN.

Preventing Unauthorised Access to the Wireless
LAN in Easy Connect Mode (NS Protect)
NS Protect is a personal firewall for Network Screen. NS Protect closes all
ports except the ports that are required for Network Screen connection and
control, so that unauthorised access from outside can be prevented.
To use NS Protect, a user with administrator privileges must login from a
Windows XP-based computer. Other users who do not have the privileges
can not use the function.
Follow the procedure given below to enable NS Protect. These settings
only need to be made once, and will be kept from then on.

Security Countermeasures for Wireless LAN
Setting the Encryption and Authentication Methods
for Wireless LAN Access Point Mode
You can select one encryption/authentication method from the following
available options when using wireless LAN access point mode and running
Network Screen.
• WEP
This uses an encryption key (WEP key) to encode the data.
It works so that if the encryption keys at the access point and the
projector are not identical to each other, data cannot be transmitted.
• WPA
This is an encryption standard that improves security which is a weak
point of WEP. Several different types of encryption method can be used
with WPA, and this projector uses TKIPg. TKIP uses PSK to
automatically update the encryption key at a regular fixed interval, which
makes it harder to break compared to WEP which uses a constant
encryption key.
WPA also includes user authentication functions. WPA authentication
provides two methods: using an authentication server, or authenticating
between a computer and an access point without the server. The EasyMP
supports the latter method (without the server).
• LEAP
This is an authentication method that uses the CCXg wireless LAN
security technology developed by Cisco Systems which combines a
unique user authorisation function and an encryption function.
You can't use LEAP without an authentication serverg (RADIUS
serverg). LEAP uses passwords for authentication without using
electronic signatures.
Downloaded From projector-manual.com Epson Manuals
TIP
• Follow the instructions from the network administrator for the
network you are using when making these settings.
• If using LEAP, you need to make settings at the projector which
match the authentication server settings. Check with your network
administrator for details on RADIUS server settings.
• You can use an Internet web browser to access a browser page for
setting and controlling the projector, and you can make the network
settings on that browser page (EasyWeb). Because you can use the
keyboard to enter setting values with EasyWeb, it is useful to use in
order to avoid the inconvenience of entering values using the remote
control. sp.60
