Mike tends to talk computerese. I don't understand him a lot of the time either. I'll see if he can clear it up for you.
I hate to say it, but this is all "as clear as mud."
What do you mean when you say, "When you connect the GTOCP5 to a network"? Does that mean when I plug the CP5 into a power supply, with no ethernet connection? Everything works great when I am interacting with the ethernet. What factory default IP address are you referring to if I am not plugged into a network? I KNOW my GTOCP5 IP address, but when I put that in my browser, nothing works. None of the suggested URLs worked. Every one of the pings returned a "no known device" message. It is interesting that the APCC "auto-discovery" (when connected via ethernet) shows only one line that starts out with GTOCP4 (yes-four), then my known ip address and ends with GTOCP5_Net_85. When I plug that into the browser, I come up with some German text.
If there is no simple solution to all this I will just continue to use ethernet. It works great, but i was hoping to eliminate a cable connection.
