SO! I'm using SNAP-PAC-R1s.
I have a configuration of Opto A Ethernet 1 connected to a Laptop. Opto A Ethernet 2 connected to Opto B Ethernet 1. Do I need to set Opto A Ethernet 2 to an IP address?
I swear I didn't need to set it and Opto A could communicate with Opto B and send commands to Opto B modules..but when I try to run the strategy, I get an error that it can't find Opto B.
I have a new configuration where I use a switch and my software communicates fine between all, but for design purposes I need to get rid of the switch and connect directly.
I had software working in the first configuration a while back and don't recall setting the IP. Am I going senile?
I tried setting Ethernet 2 of Opto A to an IP address (according to support 1 and 2 have to be on different networks). But since they are on different networks, the laptop can't ping Ethernet 2. And then wouldn't I have to change my current IP on Opto B Ethernet 1 to the same network as Opto A Ethernet 2 for those two to communicate?
Yeah..don't remember having to go through this mess.
Opto A Ethernet 1 IP = 192.168.1.100
Opto B Ethernet 1 IP = 192.168.1.101
Laptop IP = 192.168.1.8
Subnets are all 255.255.255.0.
I set Opto A Ethernet 2 to 10.0.0.5, same subnet. Doesn't make a difference communication wise.
Thanks if you can help!
