accessing 150E via ethernet...

Back for more!

I’m running into trouble getting a new 150E unit connected and recognized by RMCTools. The software will identify and recognize another controller (same setup actually), but not this brand new one.

Through the connection path dialogue, I can see the controller (including the MAC address), but when I try to go online, I always get a message that, “No controller was detected.” It connects fine through USB. I could do USB for my application, but ethernet would be much preferred. Could there be an issue with the IP address being incorrect or not matching up between my project and the controller?


Is the IP address already set in the RMC? If not, it needs to be. This can be done from the browse dialog.
Otherwise, perhaps it may be an ARP problem (Address Resolution Protocol). Run the ARP command from the DOS prompt to update the ARP table.
