Configure Enttec ODE

Configure Enttec ODE
Configure Enttec ODE on OsX
The Enttec ODE is a Art-Net node which can be connected to a WiFi and compatible network
with the Art-Net mode of the application Run The Show DMX.
Download and install on your computer the Node Managment Utility (NMU) by following
the link:
http://www.enttec.com/?main_menu=Products&pn=79001
Connect the Enttec ODE to a Ethernet
PORT of the computer on which the
NMU software was installed.
Deactivate the WIFI of the computer
to which the ODE is connected
(note previously the parameters of
connection: IP address and mask of
network). For example, it will be: IP
192.168.1.1 and mask 255.255.255.0.
Open the network preferences.

Configure the Ethernet port
of the computer on the
same network as the Enttec
ODE (the factory settings of
the box is an address such
as 10.7.127.162, that is a
class A network):
- Choose
a
configuration.
manual
- Seize an IP address in
the same network as
the ODE. For example
10.100.100.100.
- Complete the mask of
sub-network with the
values 255.0.0.0
- Validate
- Warning : the computer is not any more connected to the usual network nor to the
internet.
Launch NMU software.
At the beginning of the
execution of the program,
a window opens to ask you
to choose an IP address
among the list of the
addresses which exist in
the computer:
- Select the one that you
seized previously with
configuration of your
Ethernet connection.
- Click on OK.

The main window of the NMU
software opens and, by clicking the
button "Discovery", the Enttec ODE
appears.
To select the ODE and click then the
button "Configures …"
Choose an IP address which belongs
to the WIFI network of your
installation. That is an address which
belongs to the same family as the
one that you noted at the beginning
of the configuration. Attention not to
take an address already reserved by
another device.
For example, if your network is of the
class : C with an address which begins
with 192.168.1, seize an address
which begins in the same way (the
first 3 numbers are very important)
but which the last one is not already
used. You can choose until the value 254.
When it’s done, click "Save Config".

Wait that the case is restarted and
that the main screen of NMU shows
the ODE with the new IP address.
Reactivate the WIFI on your
computer. If it is configured
to connect automatically,
there is nothing to make
otherwise, to fix in manual
mode: the IP address to the
value which you had noted
previously (not the same
that the case ODE).

Watch out, it is possible that at this stape, if you continue to use the NMU, you have an
error message. Indeed, the Ethernet port of your computer is not any more configured on
the good IP address and the software is not able of finding the ODE.
Disconnect the ODE of the Ethernet port of your computer and connect it to the WIFI
router of your installation. Wait for a few seconds before going farther. It is possible that
it is necessary to switch off and then to switch on the ODE.
Relaunch NMU, choose the network 192.168.1 and launch a new discovery. The ODE must
be visible in the window.
Then connect the iPad on the same WIFI network and launch the Run The Show DMX
application.
In the menu "parameters" choose the Art-Net mode and launch the discovery of the
available nodes. The ODE must be visible and selectable.
