ETHERNET OPTION SETUP CHAPTER 16: ETHERNET OPTION
16.2.3 Setting the IP Address
The Ethernet Interface’s IP address must be configured before a network connection is
available. If the IP address was not set automatically via DHCP, set it now using a network
and the setup (configuration) menu.
Network Port Login
The ARP method is available under UNIX and Windows-based systems. The Ethernet
Interface will set its address from the first directed TCP/IP packet it receives.
ARP on UNIX
On a Unix host, create an entry in the host’s ARP table using the intended IP address and
the hardware address of the Ethernet Interface, which is found on the product label.
arp –s 18.104.22.168 00:20:4a:xx:xx:xx
ARP ON WINDOWS
In order for the ARP command to work on Windows, the RP table on the PC must have at
least one IP address defined other than its own. If the ARP table is empty, the command
will return an error message. Type ARP –A at the DOS command prompt to verify that there
is at least one entry in the ARP table.
If the local machine is the only entry, ping another IP address on your network to build a
new entry in the ARP table; the IP address must be a host other than the machine on which
you are working. Once there is at least one additional entry in the ARP table, use the
following command to ARP the IP address to the Ethernet Interface:
arp –s 22.214.171.124 00-20-4a-xx-xx-xx
Telnet to Port 1
Now open a Telnet connection to Port 1. The connection will fail quickly (3 seconds). But
the Ethernet Interface will temporarily change its IP address to the one designated in this
telnet 126.96.36.199 1
Telnet to Port 9999
Finally, open a Telnet connection to port 9999 and set all required parameters.
telnet 188.8.131.52 9999
This IP address is temporary and will revert to the default value when the Ethernet
Interface’s power is reset, unless you log into the Ethernet Interface and store the changes
16.2.4 Network Configuration
Certain parameters must be configured before the Ethernet Interface can function on a
network. The Ethernet Interface can be locally or remotely configured using the following
