5 Change | Challenge | Create © 2012 Samsung Electronics America - CONFIDENTIAL The display can be connected to an existing LAN, via Ethernet cables. This will typically involve plugging a cable that connects to a hub, switch, or router into the displays network port, and another cable to the server PCs network port, as illustrated below.

6 Change | Challenge | Create © 2012 Samsung Electronics America - CONFIDENTIAL The display can be connected directly to a server PC, using a specific kind of Ethernet cable, called a crossover cable this will allow the server PC to talk directly to the MagicInfo Pro display, without any other network equipment or computers in between. The display can be connected directly to a server PC, using a specific kind of Ethernet cable, called a crossover cable this will allow the server PC to talk directly to the MagicInfo Pro display, without any other network equipment or computers in between. Note: A crossover cable is NOT a standard network cable. Using a standard cable will not connect the two devices. A crossover cable is built differently, internally wired specifically to let two networked devices talk. If you connect the display and server PC directly with a standard network cable, they will not think they are connected at all. Note: A crossover cable is NOT a standard network cable.
