Allow the NI Network Browser (and/or MAX) to display the remote devices in a subnet different from the one where the host system is located

Expanding the Remote Systems category in MAX or launching the NI Network Browser only shows devices in the same subnet that the used host PC is in. However networked devices (LabVIEW Real-Time systems or Ethernet CompactDAQ chassis) are often located on different subnets.


  • In order to keep the discovery time low, only one subnet should be selectable at any time.
  • The currently selected subnet (default: local subnet as today) should be indicated:
    "Currently showing devices in the [local|[1...255]] subnet. Click here to change"
  • Some area or button allows users to pick a different subnet and once the user populates the field, MAX or the NI Network Browser refreshes.
