What alternate IP address can be used for an Instrument LAN card other than the default IP 192.168.0.1 ? - WKB2378

Article number: 2378

ENVIRONMENT

  • MassLynx
  • Breeze
  • Ethernet instrument control

ANSWER

The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) has reserved the following blocks of IP addresses space for private networks:

10.0.0.0 - 10.255.255.255

172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255

192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.255

 

You can change the Waters instrument LAN card to any of the IP addresses above:  192.168.0.1 or 172.16.0.1 or 10.0.0.1 so the Waters DHCP server functions correctly.

 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

You are required to change to the alternative IP address when the Local Area Network "LAN" is already using 192.168.xyz.xyz.
