Q & A:

Q: What is meant by compatibility with Wi-Fi Protected Setup?
A: If your routers and access points support Wi-Fi Protected Setup, the wireless LAN setup process is simplified and you can easily connect the transmitter to a wireless LAN. For connection procedures, see the WFT-E3/E3A instruction manual.

Q: What is meant by transferring images in folders?
A: Images on the camera can be selected and transferred by folder.

Q: What is meant by changing HTTP port numbers?
A: This function allows you to select one WFT-E3/E3A unit that you want to operate from among multiple WFT-E3/E3A units that are connected to the Internet. By allocating different port numbers to different WFT-E3/E3A units, the WFT-E3/E3A unit with the port number specified by the computer is connected. For information on how to make the HTTP settings, see the WFT-E3/E3A instruction manual.
