Connecting to a Projector on a
Different Subnet
This chapter explains how to connect a computer to a projector on a
different sub-net via a Wired LAN or a wireless LAN access point on an
existing network system.
Connecting to a Projector on a Different Subnet
Connecting to a Projector on a Different Subnet
By default, this application only searches for projectors on the same
subnet as the computer. Therefore, even if you perform a search for
projectors on the network, ones on a different subnet will not be found.
You can, however, identify and connect to a projector on a different
subnet as follows:
• Specify either an IP address or Projector Name and perform a search.
The IP Address can be input directly. Also, provided the Projector
name has been registered on the DNS server, you can perform a search
simply by inputting that Projector Name. s p.34
• Performing a search based on a Profile
Once you have performed a search for a projector on a different subnet
by specifying either an IP Address or a Projector Name, you can save
the search as a Profile with an easy-to-remember name, and then use
that Profile whenever you subsequently want to search for a projector
on a different subnet. s p.35
q
If a search fails to find a projector, the most likely causes are as follows.
Proceed as appropriate, depending on the cause of the failure.
For both Windows and Macintosh
• The Wireless LAN signal is either out of range or weak.
Check whether there is anything that could be interfering with the signal.
When the optional Wireless LAN unit is installed on the projector, and
Macintosh is connected to a Wireless LAN
• AirPort: On is not set, or an appropriate access point is not selected.
Check whether AirPort is set to On. Or, check whether an appropriate
access point has been selected.

You see the similar screens even when using Macintosh.
34
Enter the IP Address or the Projector Name for the projector
you want to connect to, and click "OK".
Procedure
A Click "Manual search" on the EMP NS Connection projector
selection screen.
The search results are displayed on the EMP NS Connection projector selection screen.
Provided the target projector has been identified, select that projector, and then click Connect to establish a connection.
When you will always be using that projector, save the search as a
Profile, so that you do not have to specify the relevant details every
time you perform a search. s p.35
q
When you use Manual search in Quick Connection Mode, you can specify
the SSID. When there are a lot of projectors you can narrow the search field
by using SSID.
Performing a Search with a Profile
Performing a Search with a Profile
You can save a search for a frequently used projector as a Profile. A
Profile is a file containing all of the information pertaining to a given
projector, such as the Projector Name, its IP Address, and SSID. By
specifying the profile each time you perform a search, there is no need to
enter IP Address or Projector Name. The target projectors can be found
quickly by creating groups of profiles, managing them with folders, for
each place where projectors are set up.
35
Making a Profile
Profiles are made by saving search results.
