Checking Your Network Environment

Refer to the following examples to confirm the network environment that is connected to the machine, and then perform the necessary operations for that environment.

Sample Windows Network

In a Windows network environment, the TCP/IP or NetBIOS (NetBIOS over TCP/IP) protocol can be used. Multiple protocols can be used at the same time. In addition to IPv4 (Internet Protocol Version 4), the machine also supports IPv6 (Internet Protocol Version 6), and has a dual stack configuration that enables it to communicate with both IPv4 networks and IPv6 networks. You can select whether to use the functions of IPv4 or IPv6. You can also enable the functions of both IPv4 and IPv6. The IPv4 network and IPv6 network used by the machine support IPSec (Security Architecture for Internet Protocol). (See "IPSec Settings.")
To use the e-mail/I-fax function, the TCP/IP protocol is required.
After configuring the settings in accordance with "Connecting the Machine to a Computer or Network," "Interface Settings," and "Communication Environment Setup," specify a TCP/IP or SMB/CIFS network, depending on the protocol.

Sample macOS Network

In Mac OS 8/9, the AppleTalk (EtherTalk) protocol is used. In macOS, either the AppleTalk (EtherTalk), TCP/IP, or NetBIOS (NetBIOS over TCP/IP) protocol can be used. To use the e-mail/I-fax function or to send data, the TCP/IP protocol is required.
After configuring the settings in accordance with "Connecting the Machine to a Computer or Network," "Interface Settings," and "Communication Environment Setup," specify an AppleTalk (macOS), TCP/IP, or SMB/CIFS network, depending on the protocol.

Sample UNIX Network

With UNIX computers, the TCP/IP protocol is used.
After configuring the settings in accordance with "Connecting the Machine to a Computer or Network," "Interface Settings," and "Communication Environment Setup," set a TCP/IP network.

Using a Network with Various Types of Computers

If there are various types of computers on the network, the network operations you are required to perform depend on the type of computers being used.
For example, if you are using both Windows and macOS computers, you will need to specify the settings described in both "Sample Windows Network" and "Sample macOS Network."
To use the e-mail/I-fax function, the TCP/IP protocol is required.
To use the data sending function, either the TCP/IP or NetBIOS protocol is required.
After configuring the settings in accordance with "Connecting the Machine to a Computer or Network," "Interface Settings," and "Communication Environment Setup," specify a TCP/IP, NetWare, SMB/CIFS, or AppleTalk (macOS) network, depending on the protocol.

IMPORTANT
The machine does not support NetBEUI.
The protocol you can use differs depending on the version of macOS or type of printer driver. For more information, see "Printing from a Computer."
If you are using the imagePRESS Server, see the manual of the imagePRESS Server.
If you are using the imagePRESS Server, some functions are not available with this machine. For details, see the manual of the imagePRESS Server.
When [Sleep Mode Energy Use] is set to [Low] and the machine is in the Sleep mode, communication failure may occur, depending on the utility software you are using. To avoid this, press to cancel the Sleep mode before specifying the setting, or set [Sleep Mode Energy Use] to [High]. (See "Energiforbrug i dvale.")
