Roll Cutter - Ethernet - Network - LAN Ad-Hoc Configuration

Modified on Thu, 08 Sep 2022 at 04:07 PM

Ad-hoc networks connect to devices without the need of a router or server and switch.
This makes the computer to communicate directly with the cutter.
To accomplish this, the cutter has to be configured to operate in ad-hoc mode.

For this, we need to configure both cutter and computer to work with static IP addresses.

Follow next steps to set the LAN parameters of the cutter:


1.  Press [Settings].


2. Press [More].


3. Press [Communication].


4. Press [LAN].


5.  Press [DHCP].


6.  Use the [Up]-key or [Down]-key to select the option Off and press [Apply] to confirm, as the connected computer usually has no DHCP server running. It also prevents the cutter from changing the IP address.


7. Press [Configure]


8.  Change the IP address and Subnet mask to meet the fixed IP address of the computer. Normally, the first three numbers of the IP address on the computer and cutter are equal; the last number should be different. Eventually, press to change the IP address or Subnet mask to meet the settings of the computer. Default values for the cutter are as follows:
IP address: 192.168.1.100
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0


9. Press [Home] to finalize the configuration.
