Figure 1.33: Add New Device with Static IP Address
Once the IP address is added, the application will then send a connection request to that IP address to connect to the SierraNet M408 System. Setup IP
This section describes the connectivity procedure for the SierraNet M408 System (see “IP Settings” on page 18).
Configuring the Ethernet Connection
There are two ways of configuring a SierraNet M408 for network connectivity:
DHCP automatically assigns an IP address. DHCP is the default.
Static IP prompts you to enter a specific IP address.
The SierraNet M408 can be configured from the unit itself using the five buttons and the LCD display on the front panel of the analyzer. For additional information, see “LCD Display and Button Functions for Configuring the Analyzer” on page 5. Dynamic Configurations
Dynamic configuration uses DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol). Under DHCP, SierraNet M408 will issue a broadcast to any DHCP Server requesting configuration. If a DHCP server is present on the network, it will assign an IP address, Subnet Mask and a default GATEWAY (a router port IP address) to the SierraNet M408. The Gateway port will be used by SierraNet M408 to forward packets to IP addresses that do not reside within the same subnet. When using the dynamic configuration, the front panel display will only update the IP address. The subnet mask and gateway address will remain at the last values programmed ( by default, or whatever was last programmed in the static configuration). While in dynamic mode, these parameters will have actually been programmed within the IP STACK inside the SierraNet M408, but are not displayed in the LCD display. To change from DHCP to Static IP, you must be connected to a device using USB:
1. Select Setup > All Connected Devices > IP Settings from the menu bar.
