  • Publication number: 20030237083
    Abstract: A host computer sends the same pseudo local MAC address X to a plurality of client computers. The address X is set as a MAC address for receiving communication in each of the client computers. Then, installation information is sent together with the pseudo local MAC address X. Each client computer receives the installation information using the local MAC address X, and installs the information. By using the common pseudo local MAC address X for receiving communication, installation information can be simultaneously installed into the client computers.

  • Patent number: 6268017
    Abstract: A method for providing a partial plating to a lead pin, comprising the steps of plating an entire surface of the lead pin; covering a first part of a plated surface of the lead pin by a gel member; and subjecting a second part of the plated surface of the lead pin, which extends out of the gel member, to a metal-coating removing agent, to remove a metal coating of the second part of the plated surface. The plating step may include providing a composite plating on the entire surface of the lead pin, and the subjecting step may include removing an uppermost metal layer of the composite plating by the metal-coating removing agent. The composite plating may include a nickel base layer and a gold uppermost layer deposited on the nickel base layer.
