appliance uses the Open Source SAMBA to provide Windows users with Server
Message Block (SMB) file sharing. Windows users can find a MF320
Multifunction appliance using the Network Neighborhood without installing
any additional software on their systems. Network File System (NFS) lets you
make folders (or in UNIX terms, directories) available to UNIX and Linux
To share files with users who arent on your local network, MF320
Multifunction appliance includes an Internet file sharing server. Remote
users can transfer large files over the Internet using a Web browser or a
dedicated File Transfer Protocol (FTP) client. You control what known and
anonymous users may access.
MF320 makes it very easy to share a printer from any computers connected
to the local area network via the parallel port. This is a faster connection
than a serial connection.
MF320 does not require any printer drivers. MF320 receives the formatted
print job from a client PC/notebook and sends it to the printer connected to
the MF320. Hence the printer driver only needed to be installed on the
client PC or notebook.
To prevent unauthorized
network and server access from the outside, MF320 Multifunction appliance
includes packet filtering firewall. The firewall protects your companys
private data while giving your users full Internet access. NAT hides your
internal network from the Internet, giving you additional protection from
hackers. With new SSH remote access, system administrators will be able to
securely connect to their MF320 Multifunction appliance without fear of
hackers or snoops. Encrypted passwords, secure key authentication, and root
logins can all be enabled or disabled.
MF320 supports POP3, IMAP4,
SMTP and Multi-drop POP protocol.
Post Office Protocol (POP) is a standard protocol for receiving email.
POP is a client/server protocol in which email is received and held for you
by MF320. When you read your mail, all of it immediately downloaded to your
computer and no longer maintained on the MF320. POP3 is built into the
Netscape and Microsoft Internet Explorer browsers.
POP and IMAP deal with receiving email from your MF320; Simple Mail
Transfer Protocol (SMTP) is a protocol for transferring email between points
on the Internet. You send email with SMTP and a mail handler receives it on
your recipient's behalf. This mail is read using POP or IMAP.

Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) for wireless networks in the home or
office environment with transparent bridging and roaming capabilities. It
can be managed remotely via the web-based configuration menu. It also
supports WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) and user authentication to ensure a
secure network connection.
