Connecting to a Projector on a Different Subnet
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.
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, projectors 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.32
• 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.33
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 Mac OS:
If there is no wireless LAN signal or if the signal is weak, check whether
there is anything that could be interfering with the signal.
When the optional Wireless LAN unit is installed in the projector, and
connecting Mac OS to a wireless LAN, check whether AirPort is set to On.
Or, check whether an appropriate access point has been selected.
• 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.
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.
Similar screens are also displayed for Mac OS.
Procedure
A Click "Manual search" on the EasyMP Network Projection
projector selection screen.
Connecting to a Projector on a Different Subnet
B
Enter the IP address or the projector name for the projector
you want to connect to, and click "OK".
33
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. If you
specify that information, the next time you perform a search, there will
be no need to specify the IP address or projector name when you search.
For example, by creating a group of Profiles for each place where a
projector is setup and managing them with folders, the target projector
can be found quickly.
The search results are displayed on the EasyMP Network
Projection 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
