SMB/CIFS Network Setup Procedures

To use an SMB/CIFS network, it is necessary to perform the following procedures.

1 Protocol Settings

Specify the protocol settings. To specify the settings, use one of the following:
The machine's control panel
The Remote UI (via a Web browser)

2 Setting Up a Computer for Printing/Sending a Fax

Specify the settings of each computer you use for printing or sending a fax. (Optional equipment may be required for printing from computers and sending faxes, depending on the model of your machine. For information on the optional products required, see "Optional Equipment and System Requirements.")

3 Setting Up a Computer as a File Server

Specify the settings of the computer receiving data sent from the machine.

It is recommended that you consult the administrator for the network you are using when performing the settings in steps 1 and 3.
The only base protocols supported by the machine for SMB/CIFS networks are TCP/IPv4 and TCP/IPv6. NetBEUI is not supported (SMB is used as a print application).
