you want to use WEP encryption to protect your wireless network, you have to
select “WEP’’. The wireless security setting should match other wireless
devices in the same network.
WEP Security Mode:
When you choose the encryption to ‘’WEP’’ a key format message will pop out.
25
(p.s. this picture is temporary we will post the formal one later)
You can select to enter “10 or 26 characters” for “Hexadecimal” or “5 or 13
characters’’ for ‘’ASCII” format encryption key. Longer key length can provide
stronger security but worse communication performance.
Network Key –Simplifies the WEP encryption process by automatically
generating the WEP encryption keys for the MFP server. All you have to do is
to enter 5, 10, 13 or 26 characters key then the system will automatically
transfer to 64-bit HEX, ASCII or 128-bit HEX, ASCII keys, the rules are as
below.
If the key length is 64-bit, enter 10-digit Hex values or 5-digit ASCII values as
the encryption keys. For example: “0123456aef“ or “Guest“.
If the key length is 128-bit, enter 26-digit Hex values or 13-digit ASCII values
as the encryption keys. For example: “01234567890123456789abcdef“ or
“administrator“.
26
WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK Security Mode:
“WPA-PSK’’ and ‘’WPA2-PSK” can automatically transfer keys to TKIP or AES
by random.
Network Key – Enter 8 to 63 digits to be the key for authentication within the
network.
TKIP(WPA-PSK & WPA2-PSK) – TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol)
changes the temporal key every 10,000 packets. This insures much greater
security than the standard WEP security.
27
AES(WPA2-PSK) – AES has been developed to ensure the highest degree of
security and authenticity for digital information and it is the most advanced
solution defined by IEEE 802.11i for security in a wireless network.
When you finish configuring wireless security, click “Save” and a ‘’What to do’’
message pop out. Please click ‘’Reboot’’ to let the Wireless setting take effect.

Wireless
If you want to use the MFP Server through a wireless LAN, please set up the
MFP Server through Ethernet first and make sure your wireless LAN setting is
correct. After setting the wireless LAN, unplug the Ethernet cable and restart
the MFP Server. Then you can start to use the MFP Server through the
wireless LAN. If the wireless configuration does not work, please plug in the
Ethernet cable again, restart the MFP Server and configure the MFP Server
through Ethernet until the wireless LAN settings are correct.
You can enable/disable the wireless function and set up the wireless
parameters for the MFP Server from here. The parameters include “Function”
and “ESSID”. You can manually set the wireless network that you want to
connect in this page or use the “Site Survey” function to automatically search
for an available wireless network and associate with it.
Function allows you to disable, enable or let the MFP Server auto select to
connect to a wired or wireless network. If “Disable” is selected, the MFP Server
can only connect to the network through wired Ethernet. If “Enable” is selected,
the MFP Server can only connect to the network through a Wireless LAN. If
“Auto” is selected, the MFP Server can automatically decide to enable or
disable the wireless function. The MFP Server only can work in either Ethernet
or wireless LAN mode. It cannot work in both Ethernet and wireless LAN mode
at the same time. When the MFP Server starts up, it will auto-detect if the LAN
port is connected to an active network by an Ethernet cable. If the MFP Server
is connected to an active network by Ethernet cable when starting up, the MFP
Server will run in Ethernet mode. If the MFP Server is not connected to an
active network by Ethernet cable when starting up, the MFP Server will run in
37
wireless LAN mode. The MFP Server default is in “Auto” mode.
ESSID is the unique name identified by in a wireless LAN. The ID prevents the
unintentional merging of two co-located WLANs. Please make sure that the
ESSID of all stations and access points in the same WLAN network are the
same.
Channel Number is the channel number of your wireless LAN. It is fixed on
channel 11th.

6.4.2.2
Encryption
This MFP Server supports WEP and WPA-PSK security mode. If you want to
use WEP encryption to protect your wireless network, you have to select
“WEP”. If you want to use WPA-PSK, you have to select “WPA-PSK” (for an
infrastructure network or “WPA-None” (enables WPA security for an ad hoc
network). The wireless security setting should match other wireless devices in
the same network.
WEP Security Mode:
Key Length – You can choose “64-bit” to use WEP with 64-bit key length
encryption or choose “128-bit” to use WEP with 128-bit key length encryption.
The longer key length can provide better security but worse transmission
throughput.
Key Format – You may select to use ASCII Characters (alphanumeric format)
or Hexadecimal digits (in the "A-F", "a-f" and "0-9" range) to be the WEP Key.
PassPhrase – A “PassPhrase” simplifies the WEP encryption process by
automatically generating the WEP encryption keys for the MFP Server.
40
Default Key – Select one of the four keys to encrypt your data. Only the key
you select in the “Default key” will take effect.
Key 1 – Key 4 – The WEP keys are used to encrypt data transmitted within the
wireless network. Fill the text box by following the rules below.
64-bit WEP: input 10-digit Hex values (in the "A-F", "a-f" and "0-9" range) or
5-digit ASCII characters as the encryption keys. For example: “0123456aef“ or
“Guest“.
128-bit WEP: input 26-digit Hex values (in the "A-F", "a-f" and "0-9" range) or
10-digit ASCII characters as the encryption keys. For example:
“01234567890123456789abcdef“ or “administrator“.
41
WPA-PSK Mode:
“WPA-PSK” requires users to select the advanced encryption methods, (i.e.
TKIP or AES) and enter a set of keys.
TKIP – TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) changes the temporal key every
10,000 packets. This insures much greater security than the standard WEP
security.
AES – AES has been developed to ensure the highest degree of security and
authenticity for digital information and it is the most advanced solution defined
by IEEE 802.11i for security in the wireless network.
WPA Pre-Shared key – Enter 8 to 63 digits of ASCII format to be the key for
authentication within the network.
When you finish configuring the wireless security, click “Save & Next” to
confirm the configuration.
42
WPA2-PSK Mode Security Mode:
TKIP – TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) changes the temporal key every
10,000 packets. This insures much greater security than the standard WEP
security.
Pre-shared Key Format – Select the type of pre-shared key, you can select
Passphrase (8 or more alphanumerical characters, up to 63), or Hex (64
characters of 0-9, and a-f).
WPA Pre-Shared Key –Enter 8 to 63 digits of ASCII format to be the key for
authentication within the network.
When you finish configuring the wireless security, click “Save & Next” to
confirm the configuration.

7. Troubleshooting
1. The MFP Server is not found even after searching with the “MFP Manager”.
„ Check if the power adapter and the network cable are connected to the
MFP Server properly.
„ Check if the LAN and Ready LEDs are turned on.
„ Check if the IP Address of the MFP Server is in the some network
segment as your computer.
-
If you are not sure of the IP Address setting of the MFP Server, please
check the TCP/IP setting of the MFP Server from the “Server
Manager”.
2. How do to change the IP Address of the MFP Server?
„ A DHCP Server is installed in the network
If a DHCP Server is installed, you can let the MFP Server get an IP
Address from the DHCP Server automatically.
1. Open “Server Manager” and then select “TCP/IP” setting.
2. Select “Auto IP” and click “Save”.
3. Reboot the MFP Server.
„ Set up the IP Address Manually
1. Open “Server Manager” and then select “TCP/IP” setting.
2. Select “Static IP” and enter the IP Address and Subnet Mask that
match your computer. Click “Save”.
3. Reboot the MFP Server.
Note: Setting a static IP Address for MFP Server is recommended since
DHCP assignment may dramatically change the IP Address of the MFP
Server.
3. A user stays connected to the MFP Server.
„ Contact the current user and ask to disconnect the device.
„ If the user forgets to disconnect the device, you can ask the
administrator to release the device.
48
4. I can’t use the all-in-one printer to scan, print, use the card reader, or fax a
file even I have followed the instructions in the manual.
„ Attach the all-in-one printer to a PC directly and make sure it is
operating correctly.
5. My computer has installed a firewall, and the MFP Server can’t work
normally.
„ Some firewalls, for example, the “Network Access Manager” firewall
program installed with the nVidia network card may block the
communication between the MFP Server and your computer; you have
to add the MFP Server programs to the exception list of your firewall.
The programs are as follows.
1. Add the “servoap.exe” program to the exception list.
2. Add “mfpagent.exe” program to the exception list.
