Connecting to a Projector on a Different Sub-net
This chapter explains how to connect a computer to a projector on a different sub-net via a Wired LAN access point on an existing network system.
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 to be connected has been registered on the DNS server, you
can perform a search simply by inputting that Projector name.
s p.30
• 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.31
29
Searching by Specifying the IP Address and Projector name
In the following explanations, unless otherwise noted, Windows screen
shots are used.
You see a similar screen even when using Macintosh.
Procedure
A Click "Manual search" on the EasyMP Network Projection
projector selection screen.
B Enter the IP address or the Projector name for the projector
you want to connect to, and click "OK".
The search results are displayed on the EasyMP Network
Projection projector selection screen.
30
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.31
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 and its IP address. By specifying
the profile each time you perform a search, there is no need to enter
the IP Address or Projector name. For example, by creating a group of
Profile for each place where a projector is setup and managing them
with folders, the target projector can be found quickly.
