Protocol Settings

This section describes how to specify the protocol settings for the machine using the control panel. If you are configuring the settings for the first time, use the control panel of the machine.
After configuring the settings, you can change them using software other than the control panel of the machine. For more information, see "Asetukset/Tallennus-taulukko."

TCP/IP Settings

Specify the TCP/IP settings.
If you have not entered the TCP/IP settings yet, enter them now. (For more information, see "TCP/IPv4 Settings," "TCP/IPv6 Settings," or "Settings Common to TCP/IPv4 and TCP/IPv6.")

SMB and WINS Settings

To resolve a name with WINS (Windows Internet Name Service), specify the WINS settings using the following procedure. WINS is a service for associating a NetBIOS name (which is a computer name or printer name on an SMB/CIFS network) with an IP address. To use WINS, specify the IP address settings for the WINS server.
Press .
Press [Preferences] → [Network] → [SMB Server Settings].
Press [On] for <Use SMB Server> → specify the following items.
Press [Off] for <Use SMB Server> if you do not want to use the SMB server.
[Server Name]: Enter the name of the computer that the machine will belong to. Be sure to enter a name that is not being used by another computer or printer on the network.
[Workgroup Name]: Enter the name of the workgroup that the machine will belong to. If there are no workgroups in the environment you are using, create a workgroup in Windows and enter the name of that workgroup.
[Comment]: If necessary, you can enter a comment relating to the machine. When viewing the printer information, the comment entered here is displayed.
You cannot enter the domain name for [Workgroup Name].
You cannot enter a character string in [Server Name] and [Workgroup Name] that includes spaces.
If you are using Windows, an access error may occur if you use only numbers for [Server Name].
Press [OK] → [TCP/IP Settings].
Press [WINS Settings] for [TCP/IP Settings] → specify the following items → press [OK].
If you want to use WINS name resolution, press [On] for <WINS Resolution>. Enter the IP address of a WINS server in [WINS Server Address].
If DHCP determines the IP address, the IP address obtained from a DHCP server is overwritten with the IP address of a WINS server (obtained from the DHCP server), whenever possible.
If you set <WINS Resolution> to 'On' with both [Server Name] and [Workgroup Name] set in [SMB Server Settings], the WINS name registration function will be enabled even if you set <Use SMB Server> to 'Off'.
