IP Address is different on WO Display Logo screen than I entered

Recommended Posts

I just loaded ver 5.3.1 on my display units and two of them are showing the wrong IP address on the Display logo screen.

 

I entered 192.168.0.103  and it show on the WO Dispaly as 104.

 

On the stage window display it is 103 and I get green light for connection and the systems seem to play fine when online.

 

 

What up.... any ideas?

Finally had time to sit down and research the problem and now it's gone away.

 

Did not change anything but it does not seem to be there any more.

 

By the way only one CAT 5 output on the Computer and the TCP/IP v6 is turnned off.

 

Will let you know if I ever see it happen again.

WATCHOUT only cares about valid Windows IP connections.

Granted CAT5 is connected to an Ethernet port, which is a valid IP connection,

but it is not limited to that. 

Windows will provide valid IP connections via many methods - bluetooth, firewire, wifi, etc. - even virtual interfaces.

As Jonas indicates, it would be best to confirm no additional Windows IP connections are active.

If any are found, de-activaate / disable them in Windows.

 

On computers with FireWire ports (usually on the motherboard), as a Windows default,

more than once I have seen the Firewire port as an active IP connection - with nothing physically connected to the Firewire port. 

Same is true for computers with integrated wifi.
