A bit of a newbie but I am having trouble connecting to my cRIO 9074.
So NI max does show that my cRIO is connected:
But when I got add/remove software I get this error. I also cannot connect to the target when I initiate a cRIO project. I think I have all the right softwares which are compatible with cRIO 9074. Does anyone have any suggestion as to what I should try next to be able to get this up and running?
How is the network setup between the host PC and cRIO? If something is changing/translating the IP address (e.g. NAT, proxy server), you may well have issues once you have initially connected.
As a starting point, connect the cRIO directly to the host PC. If that works and you can communicate with the cRIO-9074 correctly, it is probably a network configuration issue. That will probably require a conversation with the network admins.
Thanks for the reply! I have a crossover cable that I am using right now..is there any other way of connecting 'directly'?
If you want to eliminate the crossover cable, use a network switch. Later cRIOs do not require a crossover cable. I don't recall if the 9074 supports this functionality.
We've just been having trouble setting up a cRIO for network connectivity, and have this sort of limited functionality - i.e. being able to see in MAX, but other things not working. Ours is a connection over a VPN and we could connect locally, so what we did to fix probably doens't apply. But the following may help - as there are subtle places the networking can go wrong:
One final thing in our troubleshooting list is to do a reinstall of the LV RT firmware on cRIO - which is not as dramatic as it sounds. But it sounds like you cant do the Add/Remove Software in MAX that allows that to happen.
