Problem adding cDAQ-9189 in MAX

I am having problems adding my cDAQ-9189 chassis to MAX.

The chassis shows up in MAX, but when I click on Add Device I get error -201252 as shown below in the picture. I also tried a search in MAX of network devices and nothing shows up. I tried to add the chassis manually by entering the IP address and get "The device you requested could not be found on the network"

The PC I am using is running Windows 7 and is not connected to the internet. The chassis is directly connected to the PC via ethernet cable.

I have disabled Windows firewall and have no anti-virus software running.

I have enabled DHCP in networking on the PC, but have also tried using a static IP on the same subnet - neither work.

I am able to PING the chassis and I get a response back.

I read through and tried suggestions found here:

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,

The 9189 chassis does not have a USB connection, only ethernet.

Are you using a switch between the the cDAQ chassis and the PC?

I have tried using a cross-over cable directly connected to the PC.

I have also tried using a ethernet switch.

Neither worked.

It looks like crossover cable is a no-no when connecting directly and they want you to use 169.254.1.0 to 169.254.254.255

Right. Just using a regular cable now. I am able to PING it.

I would try it on another PC.

 

Did you buy it new from NI?

If it still doesn't work, then I'd be calling NI.
