Using a NetBIOS Network
On the TCP/IP Settings screen, press [WINS Configuration] ➞
specify the following.
[On] for <WINS Resolution>: You can resolve the name with WINS. Enter the IP
address of a WINS server in [WINS Server Address].
Enter the [Scope ID] settings if a scope ID is set on the computer in the network
environment you are using. The scope ID is an identifier for determining the
range available to a printer or computer. The scope ID set here is used
regardless of the setting for <WINS Resolution>.
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 a scope ID, the machine cannot communicate with any computer whose
scope ID is different from the scope ID you set here.
If a scope ID is not set on any of the computers in your network environment, leave
[Scope ID] blank.
