  Embodiments of the present invention will be exemplarily described in detail below with reference to the drawings. However, the relative arrangement of components and the display screen described in the present embodiment are not intended to be limited to them.

  FIG. 1 is a block diagram showing a schematic configuration of a multi function printer (MFP) 100 having a wireless LAN (WLAN) communication function, which is an example of an embodiment of a communication apparatus according to the present invention. In this example, the MFP 100 has a reading function and a recording (printing) function as an example. However, the MFP 100 does not have one or both of these functions but has other functions, and these functions and other functions. It is applicable to those having various functions such as those having As other functions, a telephone / facsimile function (for telephone line / IP network), a short-range wireless communication function (Bluetooth (registered trademark) communication, NFC (Near Field Communication)) and the like can be employed.

  The MFP 100 includes a CPU 102, a ROM 103, a RAM 104, a nonvolatile memory 105, an image memory 106, an operation unit 107, a display unit 108, a reading control unit 109, and a recording control unit 111 on a main board 101. The MFP 100 also has a WLAN unit 114 connected via a bus cable 113. These components are connected via the system bus 115 and can communicate with each other via the system bus 115. The MFP 100 further includes a reading unit 110 for realizing a reading function for reading an image on a document, and a recording unit 112 for realizing a recording function for recording an image on a recording medium.

  CPU 102 controls the entire MFP 100. The following processing of MFP 100 is executed under the control of CPU 102. The ROM 103 stores a control program executed by the CPU 102, an embedded operating system (OS) program, and the like. In the present embodiment, each control program stored in the ROM 103 performs software control such as scheduling and task switching under the management of the embedded OS stored in the ROM 103. Further, the CPU 102 operates the protocol stack in accordance with a program stored in the ROM 103 when communicating with the communication partner apparatus. At this time, a plurality of sockets necessary for communication operation are also set. The RAM 104 stores data such as program control variables, stores data such as setting values registered by the user and management data of the MFP 100, and is provided with various work buffer areas. The nonvolatile memory 105 is configured by a memory such as a flash memory, and continues to store data even when the power is turned off. The image memory 106 is configured by a memory such as a DRAM (Dynamic RAM), and stores image data input by the reading unit 110 and image data received from the outside.

  The operation unit 107 includes a hard switch and the like, receives an operation from the user, and transmits the operation content to the CPU 102. Display unit 108 performs various displays relating to MFP 100 (displays for guiding operations to be performed by the user, information indicating the state of MFP 100, and the like). Further, a touch panel or the like in which the operation unit 107 and the display unit 108 are integrated can be employed.

  The reading control unit 109 controls a reading unit (scanner) 110 (for example, a CIS image sensor (contact image sensor)) to optically read an image on a document and generate image data corresponding to the read image. To do.

  The recording control unit 111 converts the input image data into recording data to be recorded (printed) by the recording unit (printer) 112, and controls the recording unit 112 to record on the recording medium such as paper. To record an image. As the recording unit 112, an ink jet printer that records an image on a recording medium by ejecting ink as a recording material from a recording head can be employed.

  The WLAN unit 114 communicates with a terminal on a network (a network capable of communication according to TCP / IP) by wireless communication. It is assumed that the WLAN unit 114 is capable of data (packet) communication in a WLAN system compliant with, for example, the IEEE 802.11 series. In addition, the wireless communication using the WLAN unit 114 includes a software access point (soft AP) mode, a WFD mode for performing wireless communication based on Wi-Fi Direct (registered trademark) (WFD), and the like. Further, the WLAN unit 114 can perform wireless communication in an ad hoc mode that does not use an AP and an infrastructure mode that passes through an external AP (relay AP).

  In addition to the soft AP mode and WFD mode, the MFP 100 can operate by switching between a WFD extended mode for performing an extended service based on WFD, an infrastructure mode for performing wireless communication via a relay AP other than itself, an ad hoc mode, and the like. . Note that these modes are not limited to being set exclusively, and a plurality of modes may be set simultaneously.

  The soft AP mode is a mode in which the MFP 100 operates as an AP according to software settings. While the MFP 100 is operating in the soft AP mode, the MFP 100 periodically sends out a beacon signal (packet) including its SSID and the like, so that other communication apparatuses perform access point search to set the MFP 100 as an AP. Can be detected. The SSID when the MFP 100 itself is an AP is configured in a format according to a predetermined rule, and a communication partner apparatus that knows this rule (format) can easily identify the MFP 100. As a rule, for example, information specifying a model of the MFP 100 or a series including the model, a MAC address of the MFP 100, a manufacturer name, and the like are combined. This SSID is stored in advance in the ROM 103 or the like.

  In the WFD mode, the MFP 100 performs direct wireless communication with another communication device (communication partner device) by peer-to-peer (P2P), and may become an AP or a communication partner device may become an AP by Group Owner Negotiation. To do. In the WFD extension mode, after a Group Owner Negotiation by the WFD, a service that can be executed is executed by negotiating a service that corresponds to each other.

  In the infrastructure mode, the MFP 100 communicates with a communication partner apparatus via an external relay AP. In order for the MFP 100 to operate in the infrastructure mode, it is necessary to register in the MFP 100 the relay AP with which the MFP 100 performs wireless communication and the parameters for performing wireless communication with the relay AP.

  In the ad hoc mode, the MFP 100 and a communication partner apparatus perform direct wireless communication with P2P. In the ad hoc mode, unlike the WFD mode and the WFD extended mode, any device that performs communication is not an AP. In order for the MFP 100 to operate in the ad hoc mode, it is necessary to register the wireless communication parameters common to the communication partner apparatus in the MFP 100.

  FIG. 2 is a block diagram showing a schematic configuration of a mobile terminal 200 which is an example of an embodiment of a communication apparatus of the present invention. As the mobile terminal 200, various devices such as a mobile phone, a smartphone, a notebook PC, a tablet terminal, a PDA (Personal Digital Assistant), a digital camera, and the like can be used.

  The mobile terminal 200 has a CPU 202, ROM 203, RAM 204, nonvolatile memory 205, image memory 206, operation unit 207, and display unit 208 on the main board 201. In addition, the mobile terminal 200 includes a WLAN unit 210 connected via a bus cable 209. These components are connected via the system bus 211 and can communicate with each other via the system bus 211. Each of these components is the same as the description given for the components of the same name shown in FIG. 1, and thus description thereof is omitted here.

  In addition, various application software can be stored in the non-volatile memory 205, and various functions can be realized by being executed by the CPU 202. Application software includes a web browser function and an e-mail function. FIG. 2 shows the main components of the mobile terminal 200. In addition to these, various functions such as a telephone function, a camera function, a Bluetooth (registered trademark) communication function, an NFC function, a GPS (Global Positioning System) function, a microphone function, a speaker function, and a television receiving function may be included.

  Next, processing when registering a relay AP in MFP 100 when MFP 100 operates in the infrastructure mode using portable terminal 200 will be described.

  3 is a flowchart showing the flow of processing performed by the MFP 100 in this case, and FIG. 4 is a flowchart showing the flow of processing performed by the mobile terminal 200. FIG. 3 is a flowchart showing a flow of processing performed when the CPU 102 of the MFP 100 loads the program stored in the ROM 103 into the RAM 104 and executes it. FIG. 4 is a flowchart showing a flow of processing performed when the CPU 202 of the portable terminal 200 loads a program stored in the nonvolatile memory 205 to the RAM 204 and executes it.

  In FIG. 3, if it is determined in S301 that the user has performed an operation to set (register) an infrastructure mode AP using the operation unit 107, the process proceeds to S302, and the MFP 100 is set to the infrastructure mode.

  In step S <b> 303, the MFP 100 searches for an AP with which the MFP 100 can wirelessly communicate via the WLAN unit 114. If an AP is detected as a result of this search, information that can identify the AP such as the device name and SSID received from the AP in S304 (information included in the beacon transmitted by the AP) is sequentially stored in the RAM 104 (cache). I will do it. Note that the AP detection is not limited to that performed at this timing, but a previously specified one may be stored in the RAM 104. If the AP that can be accessed by the MFP 100 can be detected, the infrastructure mode need not be set in S302. For example, the AP search may be automatically performed when entering the AP registration mode for the infrastructure mode.

  In step S305, the MFP 100 is switched to the soft AP mode. As a result, the MFP 100 periodically sends out a beacon including its own SSID and the like, and is in a state where information included in the beacon can be provided for an AP search from a communication partner apparatus (such as the mobile terminal 200). Here, when there is a connection request from the communication partner device, communication parameters are exchanged and the IP connection is executed.

  In S306, it is determined whether an AP list request from the communication partner apparatus has been received (received), and the AP list request is waited until it is determined in S307 that a timeout has occurred. The time-out here is that, after the AP setting start operation is performed in S301, or after switching to the soft AP mode in S305, the communication partner apparatus is not IP-connected or the AP list request is not received even after a predetermined time elapses. If a timeout occurs, the process ends. At this time, a display indicating that the process is to be ended may be displayed on the display unit 108, and the process may be ended when the user performs an operation for agreeing to the end of the process.

  If it is determined in S306 that the AP list request has been received from the communication partner apparatus, the process proceeds to S308, and a list of information indicating the AP stored in the RAM 104 in S304 is transmitted via the WLAN unit 114. Here, when there is information on a plurality of APs, information on the plurality of APs is transmitted. However, when there is only information on one AP, information on the one AP is transmitted, and there is an AP that can communicate with one AP. If it does not exist, the fact that there is no communicable AP is transmitted. If there is no AP that the MFP 100 can access, the process ends here.

  In S309, after transmitting the AP list in S308, it is determined whether AP information (such as the SSID of the AP included in the AP list) specifying the AP is received from the communication partner device. The reception of this AP information waits until it is determined in S310 that a timeout has occurred.

  If it is determined in S309 that AP information has been received, the soft AP mode is terminated in S311 and the infrastructure mode AP is set in S312. Specifically, the designated AP is set in the RAM 104 as an AP to be passed through in the infrastructure mode, or when an encryption key is required to use the AP, the encryption key is registered. At this time, for example, a connection attempt with a designated AP is performed, and the communication partner apparatus (here, the mobile terminal 200) is notified of the result, and the communication partner apparatus may be allowed to determine whether or not to register. When AP registration is properly completed, the process advances to step S313, and the MFP 100 is set in a state in which wireless communication via the AP registered in the infrastructure mode is possible (the normal infrastructure mode is set).

  As a result, MFP 100 is in a state in which wireless communication is possible via the set (registered) AP.

  Next, the process of the portable terminal 200 that is the communication partner apparatus in the process of FIG. 3 will be described.

  In FIG. 4, a wireless LAN setting application (an application for setting an AP when the communication partner apparatus (MFP 100 or the like) operates in the infrastructure mode) is activated by a user operation in S 401. The application is a program (software) stored in the nonvolatile memory 205, and is installed by the user in advance. In step S <b> 402, a search for an AP that can be accessed by the mobile terminal 200 by the application is performed via the WLAN unit 210. This AP search may be executed automatically upon activation of an application, or may be executed in response to an AP search instruction from the user. The AP search is performed by receiving a beacon transmitted from each AP via the WLAN unit 210.

  In S403, the display unit 208 displays a list of APs (SSID list) as a search result. In S404, it is determined whether an AP has been selected from the list via the operation unit 107 by the user. If it is determined that the AP has been selected, the process proceeds to S405, where the selected AP is a printer to be set in this application. It is determined whether it is (apparatus). The determination in S405 is determined based on whether the AP is an SSID in a format that conforms to the rules described above. If it is determined that the selected AP is not a device to be set by the application, the display unit 208 displays that effect and waits for the AP to be selected from the AP list again. If there is no AP to be set for this application in the AP list or there is no AP desired by the user, the process ends here. In S404, an SSID having a format that conforms to the above-described rules may be automatically selected. At this time, when there are a plurality of corresponding SSIDs, only those may be displayed on the display unit 208, and the user may select them.

  When an AP to be set (here, MFP 100) is selected in S405, parameters for wireless communication between the portable terminal 200 and the MFP 100 are exchanged. In S406, an AP that the MFP 100 can access to the MFP 100 is exchanged. Request to send a list. In step S407, the process waits for reception of the AP list transmitted from the MFP 100 in step S308. If the AP list can be received before the time-out is determined in S408, the process proceeds to S409, and the received AP list is displayed on the display unit 208. In S408, the process is terminated as a time-out when the MFP 100 cannot proceed to the IP connection or the MFP 100 does not send the AP list within the scheduled time.

  In S410, the user waits for an AP to be selected from the list displayed in S409 via the operation unit 207. If an AP is selected, the process advances to step S411 to determine whether connection with the selected AP can be performed. Here, if an encryption key is required for access to the selected AP, MFP 100 is made to try to connect using the encryption key input by the user via operation unit 207. When the encryption key is unnecessary, the MFP 100 is made to try connection without using the encryption key. If the connection can be properly made before the time-out is determined in step S412, the process proceeds to step S413, and the MFP 100 is instructed to register the AP as an infrastructure mode AP (set on the RAM 104). If the connection with the AP selected within the predetermined time in S412 is not successful, the process is terminated here.

  If AP is selected in S410 without performing the processes in S411 to S412, the process may proceed to S413. In this case, after execution of S413, the MFP 100 side determines whether or not connection to the selected AP is possible, notifies the portable terminal 200 of the result, and displays on the display unit 208 whether or not AP registration has been successful. Display.

  Further, S402 to S404 are not limited to those performed by the present application, but may be performed by performing a search using another application already installed in the mobile terminal 200 and acquiring the result.

  Further, when the above operation is performed, MFP 100 may be registered in RAM 204 as a printer used in the infrastructure mode in portable terminal 200.

  As described above, according to the present embodiment, the AP used when the MFP 100 operates in the infrastructure mode can be easily performed by wireless communication between the portable terminal 200 and the MFP 100. Therefore, it is only necessary that the respective devices be placed at a distance where the portable terminal 200 and the MFP 100 can communicate with each other wirelessly, and it is not necessary to operate the respective devices simultaneously. Moreover, it is not necessary to connect each other with a wired cable. At this time, since the MFP 100 is once set to the soft AP mode, the portable terminal 200 can specify the MFP 100 by a general AP search (search). When the infrastructure mode AP is registered in the MFP 100, the MFP 100 is automatically set to the infrastructure mode, so that communication in the infrastructure mode can be quickly started. Further, since the AP list is displayed on the mobile terminal 200 side, the MFP 100 may not include the display unit 108.

  In the above example, the MFP 100 is set in the soft AP mode so as to be searchable by the AP search by the portable terminal 200. However, other P2P modes may be used, and if search is possible by wireless communication. Other modes may be used.

  In the above description, the MFP has been described as an example of a communication device that operates in the infrastructure mode. However, any device of another form can be used as long as it can operate in the infrastructure mode and can also operate as an access point. Also good. In addition, the communication apparatus for performing the registration operation for the AP by the user has been described by taking the mobile terminal as an example. However, other forms of apparatuses may be used as long as similar processing can be performed.

  Processing similar to that in the above embodiment can also be realized by executing the following processing. That is, software (program) that realizes the functions of the above-described embodiments is supplied to a system or apparatus via a network or various storage media, and a computer (or CPU, MPU, or the like) of the system or apparatus reads the program. It is a process to be executed. Further, the number of computers that execute the program may be one, or a plurality of computers may cooperate to execute the program. Furthermore, hardware such as a circuit that executes a part of the program may be provided, and the hardware and the computer that executes the software may cooperate to execute the processing described in the present embodiment.
