[Cinema Color Editor]
Security alert screen (Cinema Color Editor)
The functions of the three buttons displayed in the security alert screen are explained
below.
[Keep Blocking] --- Enables you to register a started application in the “Exceptions”
program of the Windows Firewall. The network port that the
application uses is blocked. By selecting this button once, this
security alert message will not be shown when starting the
application next time.
[Unblock] ------------- Enables you to register a started application in the “Exceptions”
program of the Windows Firewall and unblock the network port that
the application uses. By selecting this option once, this security alert
message will not be shown when starting the application next time.
[Ask me later]-------- When you want to select both buttons above or select either one
later, this button is selected. The started application is not registered
in the “Exceptions” program of the Windows Firewall and the
network that the application uses is not unblocked. However, when
restarting the application, the same security alert message is shown.
•
PC applications will work normally on Windows XP with SP2 if the “Unblock
Item” is selected when the security alert screen is shown.
For the detail operation information of each application, please refer to the following:

PSB.2004.10.002
Operating Status Report
When selecting the Keep Blocking button, the security alert message is closed and the
main screen of each application is displayed.
[EMP NS Connection Application]
Port 3620 is necessary for searching for projectors. If this port is blocked, projectors are not
detected.
The other applications operate normally. However, there is a case that execution of
automatic search disables automatic detection. This occurs when projectors are registered
for automatic detection in EMP Monitor before installing SP2, then the registered projectors
may not be detected again after SP2 installation. Therefore it is recommended to select
Unblock in the security alert screen.
If “Keep Blocking” has been selected when starting the application for the first
time, and the blocking needs to be removed, complete the execution of the application and
proceed with unblocking as follows:
a.) Start the Windows Security Center. Double click the icon in the shape of a shield that
is always displayed on the taskbar after the installation of SP2.
Windows Security Center screen
b.) Select and start Windows Firewall

PowerLite 735c/7850p & 8300i (with EasyMP.net module.)
EMP NS Connection failures caused by Remote Control applications
This bulletin was created to inform you of an issue that can occur when using the PowerLite
735c/7850p, 8300i (with EasyMP.net module) and remote control software.
Description of Issue:
The user attempts to run EMP NS Connection on Windows 98SE/Me/2000/XP with the PowerLite
735c/7850p/ 8300i (with EasyMP.net module). When the EMP NS Connection application is
launched, it immediately gives an error message stating that EMP NS Connection "FAILED TO
INITIALIZE."
Reason:
Epson has found that remote control software, like PCAnywhere and RealVNC, causes a conflict
with the EMP NS Connection application. These remote control applications use a "Video Hook
Driver" that conflicts with the Epson GDI Monitor driver that is installed and used by EMP NS
Connection. Most remote control programs load a small client application at Windows startup and
leave an icon in the system tray (located at the bottom right on the desktop) to indicate they have
been loaded. In most cases, the remote control software can be turned off by right-clicking on the
icon in the system tray and disabling or exiting the program. Remote control applications do not
have to be removed from the system in order for EMP NS Connection to run properly; they just
need to be turned off. Consult the documentation that came with the remote control software for
information on how to disable the software from automatically launching every time the computer is
started.
Once the remote control software has been turned off, EMP NS Connection should run without
returning an error. If you continue to have issues connecting to the projector, consult the EMP NS
Connection Help file or User's Guide for troubleshooting assistance.
Notes:
VNC stands for Virtual Network Computing. It is a remote console utility which allows a user at his
computer to assume control of another computer across a network, as if they were sitting in front of
that computer.
Remote Control Applications known to conflict with Epson EMP NS Connection
• PCAnywhere - versions 32, 9.0, 9.2, 10.0, 10.5 and 11.0 by Symantec
• Real VNC - versions 3.3.7 and 4.0 beta by RealVNC with the GNU Library General Public
License
• TightVNC - version 1.3dev3 based on VNC with the GNU Library General Public License
• NetworkStreaming – v. 7.1 (formerly ExpertVNC)
Any other VNC remote control software based on RealVNC under the GNU Library General Public
License or remote control programs that load a "Video Hook Driver" (listed in Windows Device
Manager under "Display Adapters), can cause similar conflicts.
