Step-By-Step Configuration

1] Set up the correct network settings in Windows.

2] Activate e:net in MADRIX.

3] Activate your devices.


1] Windows Network Settings

e:net is a network-based protocol. MADRIX will use the network card of your computer to send data.

It is required to set up the correct network settings in Windows, first.
You must use these IP address and Subnet mask settings. Otherwise, e:net might not work!
The IP addresses of your computer and your e:net devices need to be different.
The standard butler interface has a predefined IP address and subnet mask. [192.168.123.X /]
Set up an individual IP address for your computer:
- 192.168.123.X
- For example:
Set up the corresponding Subnet mask
Restart MADRIX, if you have changed the network settings in Windows while MADRIX was running.
Check the settings of the Windows Firewall.
