I want to use my smart camera 1744 just to handle the aquisition and the Crio 9023 to handle all the processing. Problem is that I have 1 ethernet port on my PC. I used a hub to connect to both Crio and smart cam, but I cannot connect and run both VI's simulatous with my ethernet hub.
Thankz in advance?

Seems like you should be able to talk to both. They are both real time targets. One thing I do on PC's is install cisco usb to Ethernet hubs to create private networks if the PC only has one. I have had multiple realtime targets on a hub with a PC and multiple PC's on a hub talking to a real time controller.

You should be able to connect to both at the same time. the only problem you may see is slow down of data transfer if you are streaming both at the same time, but with only two targets there shouldn't really be to noticable a difference.

Okay thanks I found the problem - The ethernet hub I was using was old and maybe only supported 10mb/s instead of 10/100. So thats why I was getting collisions and why I was not able to connect to both devices simulateously.
Thanks for your help
