I'm trying to configure new cFp-1808 over Ethernet. According to documentation the device supposed to show up with IP 0.0.0.0 in MAX after refresh, but it does not. !'m using my laptop with MAX v. 4.1 and FieldPoint software v. 5.0. Tried both direct connection with crossover cable and connecting both laptop and 1808 to the same 10/100 hub. Also tried disabling firewall on laptop. The 1808 status LED emits single flashes ("not configured"), "ip reset" is in off position, 1808 Ethernet LEDs lit when cable is plugged.
Make sure that when you use a crossover cable to connect directly to the computer, you follow these steps:
Go to Start » Control Panel
Switch to Classic View if necessary
Select Network Connections
Right-click on Local Area Connection, and select Properties
Select the General tab and highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP). Click the Properties button.
On the General tab, select Use the following IP Address.
this point, you can enter your own IP Address and Subnet Mask. A
typical set of settings for a standalone computer are an IP Address of
"192.168.0.1" and subnet mask "255.255.255.0". Press the OK button and exit the Network control panel.
