Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9959309A1] An apparatus and method for connecting a number of information processing apparatuses together in a desired manner in which each information processing apparatus is connected to a network. Signals may be formed which represent a graphical interface for display on a display unit. Such graphical interface may indicate available connections between the information processing apparatuses connected to the network. A user may select a desired connection by use of the graphical interface, whereupon a control signal may be formed therefrom. The desired connection between the corresponding information processing apparatuses may be established in accordance with the control signal. As a result, an input/output connection setting or settings of information processing apparatuses coupled to a network may be easily performed.
