Connecting to a Projector on a Different Subnet (EB-826W/825/85)
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
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.33
• 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.34
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.
32
Specifying Either an IP Address or Projector Name and Performing a Search (Advanced Connection Mode Only)
In the following explanations, unless otherwise noted, Windows screen
shots are used.
You see the similar screens even when using Macintosh.
33
B 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.34
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
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.
34
Procedure
A When the projector is displayed on the EMP NS Connection
projector selection screen, click "Save in the profile".
