Introduction

MADRIX 5 features a loopback adapter [by default, with the IP address 127.0.0.1].

MADRIX 5 supports a variety of Ethernet-based network protocols. As such, an active and functioning network connection is required for the communication between tools and equipment, and in order to use these standards.
However, a network connection might not always be available or possible. Still, you may want to work with different tools on the same computer [sending data from MADRIX 5 to a visualizer, for example]. This is where the loopback adapter can be useful.

As such, the loopback adapter makes it possible to send and receive network data on the local computer.

 

 

Overview

The loopback adapter can be used for the following network protocols:

Art-Net
CITP Server
CITP Visualizer
Philips Color Kinetics [KiNET]
MA-Net
Streaming ACN [sACN]
Remote HTTP

 

The following points summarize the device:

- The loopback adapter is a virtual device that emulates a network adapter.

- As such, all normal functionality is provided [including all of its advantages and drawbacks].

- Network data that is sent to the loopback adapter does not leave the local computer.

- By default, the IP address is 127.0.0.1. If you are seeing a different IP address, this could be due to corresponding changes that were made in the operating system.
