User Authentication and Security
Depending on the authentication setup of the printer, you may be prompted to enter a user name and password to use the printer via the network.
The default ID and password are "admin" and "NECPRADMIN".
Saving Non-Alphanumeric Characters
The printer uses Unicode UTF-8 to save characters. In general, UTF-8 requires 2 to 4 bytes to save a non-alphanumeric character.
Therefore, if you enter non-alphanumeric characters in text boxes, the entire characters may not be saved even if they are displayed in the text boxes.
