Connect new device to network
Posted on 2004-09-13
I know this is going to be easy for somone!
Anyway, I have 3 machines connected on a small network each device has fixed IP address in the range 192.168.0.xx and are connected via a switch which in turn connects to a router that allows access to the internet. The switch is there as the router only allows 10mps and the switch 100.
Everything works fine and I can access the internet and each computer with no problems. I am running XP Pro.
I have just purchased a Keyspan USB server (in response to a previous question).
This device uses port 3842 and DHCP.
I have tried connecting as per the doncumetation and even tried connecting direct to the ethernet port bypassing the switch.
I have disabled Windows firewall as I run Norton Internet security professional. I have tried disabling Norton as I suspected it was blocking access on port 3842.
I still cannot access the USB server, if I could I could change the DNCP to fixed IP and I guess everything would work.
My question is how do I add the server?
