Hi .. I'm trying to program a Red Lion HMI.. No problem using several PC's (Dell E630 and E6410) But one Dell E6410 fails to connect via Ethernet LAN port. All of the 4 PC's (2) E630 and (2) E6410 are configured the same .. Fixed Ethernet IP address (192.168.0.105) .. all the same. By connecting each one 1 at a time to the HMI (192.168.0.20) .. three computers connect no problem .. one (a E6410) does not.
So this is a computer configuration problem?.. or a Ethernet LAN card problem?.. or a FIREWALL problem?
I'm not real sharp with PC's .. but, I do know enough to work with them... most of the time ... I don't know how to troubleshoot this problem .. or how to troubleshoot a network connection problem.
Any ideas would be appreciated... also, is there a simple tutorial out there which details all the steps in configuring a LAN port.. and making sure a firewall doesn't block it?
