Finding the IP address of a product
There are three methods for finding the IP address of an Art-Net product:
- Connect using DMX-Workshop, this will display the product in a network list along with its IP address. DMX-Workshop can be downloaded from here.
- Ping: Open a command line window and use the ping command. If the products are on the normal Art-Net address range, type: “ping 188.8.131.52”. This approach is best on a Mac as Macs do not support net-bios.
- If the product is from Artistic Licence, perform a net-bios search (Windows only). To do this, connect the product to your laptop’s network, open browser and type in one of the following net-bios names, depending upon the product you are using:
|Artistic Licence Product||Net-Bios name|
Occasionally the net-bios cache in the browser gets out of date. To flush the cache and restart, type the following in the browser window: nbtstat -R
