Set IP "0.0.0.0" or Set IP "255.255.255.255" to have the controller accept address from a DHCP server

Hardware Assignment:

 Change the switches to desired address in the range shown above then cycle power or issue REBOOT command for the new address to take effect.

 

Software Assignment:

Establish communication to the control using a hardware assigned address. Change the hardware setting to 99 (x1=9, x10=9) but do not cycle power yet. In the terminal emulator assign a new address using the syntax IP "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx".  Setting is saved automatically in non-volatile RAM.  Change subnet mask as needed using syntax IP MASK "xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx".  Cycle power or issue REBOOT command for the new address to take effect. For example:

SYS> IP "192.168.20.45"

SYS> IP MASK "255.255.255.0"

SYS>REBOOT
