CONFIGURING THE CLIENT
You can manually configure the client to conform
with the settings of an existing network. Manual
client settings are only necessary if you are also
using a manual configuration for the server. In most
cases, Auto Configuration is adequate for using the
MusicCAST system.
When making manual settings, it is not always
necessary to set all of the parameters described in
the following section. The settings you make will
depend on the network to which the client is
connected. However, be sure to set the following:
Server ID
IP address for the client (when DHCP is set to
OFF)
Subnet mask*
* The server and client will only function
correctly if they are under the same subnet
(running under one or more hubs).
Before performing Manual Configuration, be sure
to:
Complete all connections for the client and its
companion components and tum on the client.
Upgrade the MusicCAST system firmware on
the server.
Tum on the server.
Set the client ID for each client connected to the
MusicCAST system on the server. For details,
see the MCX-I000 Owner's Manual, page 113.
Set the Subnet Mask address on the server. (This
must be the same for both the server and the
client.) For details, see the MCX-I000 Owner's
Manual, page 109.
You must perform the Manual Configuration
procedure if your MusicCAST system uses more
than one server.

YAMAHA will repair or replace a unit covered by this warranty, without charge to the consumer for labor or materials. Some repair parts may be used or
rebuilt replacements, that meet or exceed Yamaha specifications for new parts, in exchange for defective parts. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY INSTALLATION OR REMOVAL AND FOR ANY INITIAL SHIPPING CHARGES, if the product must be shipped for warranty service. However, we will pay the
return shipping charges to any destination within the USA if we determine that the repairs are covered by the warranty.
