Configure the Waters DHCP Server to control the Ethernet instruments

  1. Power-off the instruments.
  2. Open the Waters DHCP Server configuration wizard.exe. In Empower: >C:\Empower\Instruments\Waters DHCP Server Configuration.exe. In MassLynx: >C:\Program files x86\Waters Instruments\Waters DHCP Server Configuration.exe

     2.1. Select server > Configuration wizard.

    2.2. Select the Ethernet card where the instruments are connected (Instrument LAN for MassLynx systems).

    2.3. Select an IP address and click Next. If the default IP address has the same IP range as the local address, use the option Alternate or Custom IP option.

    2.4. Select Finish. Your PC automatically restarts.


3. Once the PC restarts, execute C:\Empower\Instruments\Waters DHCP Server Configuration.exe or C:\Program files x86\Waters Instruments\Waters DHCP Server Configuration.exe.

4. Power-on all the instruments and wait until all the instruments appear in the list.
