Installation
Notice about system construction
For installation of multiple projectors into the same network with
Network Board.
Do not install multiple projectors with Network Boards that have their default network settings to the same network. The use of the Network Boards which have the
default IP address set to the same network settings will cause IP addresses to collide
and create a malfunction. When you install multiple projectors into the same network, configure the network with the following steps.
1. Change the IP address from the default IP address. To change the IP address, use
the network setting menu on the projector. Please see chapter “Network
Configuration” on page 15 for further information.
2. Make sure that there is no network equipment set with the same IP address in the
network, and then connect to the network.
3. When installing other projectors, follow the above steps to change the IP address
and connect to the network.
In case of installing the projector with Network Board into the network
constructed with the DHCP/BOOTP server.
This Network Board does not support the DHCP/BOOTP server. The static IP address
must be configured by the manual. To use this product in this network environment,
set it up so that the DHCP/BOOTP server does not assign the IP address configured
to this product for another device on the network. Please consult your network
administrator for further information.

Notes on timer setting
✐ Up to 10 timer events can be registered. Timer events always operate according to
the next valid event depending on the projector's power status. In the example
below, event 3 turns on the projector so next event 4 (also turning on projector)
will not be effective because the projector is already turned on. Similarly, when the
projector is turned off by event 5, event 6 OFF will not be effective in turning it off
again. But these secondary events (event 4 and event 6) will become effective if a
person turns off the projector (after event 3 and before event 4) or turns on the
projector (after event 5 and before event 6).

Operation
Q Why can't I change the controls in the setting page with web
browser?
A
Please make sure the projector is turned on. If it is in the standby mode, the
setting is not effective to the projector. To control the projector with a web
browser, the projector must be in the powered-on condition. Also, projectors
registered for multi-control cannot have any controls changed if they are in
standby mode. But timer and clock settings are always effective, even for projectors in standby mode.
Q Why does it sometimes take a lot of time to complete the page display?
A
The display speed of the page depends on the network environment in which
both the projector and computer are placed. It may take much time to complete
the page display if network traffic is heavy. Please consult your network administrator. By changing the preference of your web browser to “not show pictures”, you may have page display more quickly at the heavy network traffic.
Please see the browser’s on-line help for further information. Also you can
select the Text mode for displaying pages quickly (p.26)
Q I use many of the projectors in the network. How can I use names of

Q Can I develop a driver to control external serial equipment?
88
A
This product does not provide any driver software. To control the external
equipment connected to the extra serial port, it should be required to clarify the
commands and communication condition defined by each equipment. If they
are clarified, it can be controlled by using the Telnet application installed on your
computer. Please see chapter “Use of telnet” on page 66.
Q
Can I control the projector by using the telnet application?
A
Possible. Please refer to the chapter “Control the projector with telnet“ on

Appendix
Q What are the rules for IP address assignment?
A
If the network is constructed with TCP/IP protocol, a unique IP address is
required for each piece of network equipment. The following are basic rules of
the assignment.
Rule1
Do not configure the same IP address to the network equipment in the
same network group. Each piece of equipment must be assigned a
unique IP address.
If the IP address is set [192.168.x.x], the Subnet Mask should be set
[255.255.255.0] for example.
Rule2
The start address [xxx.xxx.xxx.0] and the last address [xxx.xxx.xxx.255]
of the IP address must not be assigned to any other equipment. These
address numbers are reserved.
Rule3
The IP address must correlate to a network number. If network numbers
are different between the equipment, they cannot establish communications each other. In this case, the router is placed in the networks to
make the routing.
Q What is the MAC address assigned to the Network Board?
A
The MAC address is indicated on the printed board as the below.
