Change DHCP to Static IP – Toolkit
GRIDlinks are shipped from the factory set for DHCP and should automatically run on any network provided there is a DHCP server. These are the final steps to change to Static IP.
DNS Considerations. When the GRIDlink is changed to a static IP, it will no longer obtain DNS server addresses from the Gateway and default to 126.96.36.199
After following the Change to Static IP 113/135 Procedure in the right column and when the GRIDlink is accessible, take the following steps:
Open the Toolkit Project
Select GRIDlink VEN so it is highlighted in blue in the number column.
Select Configure > Configure Station Module > Ports (tab at top)
Select: Manually Assign IP address
Enter: New Static IP address
Select: Advanced button
Check with your IT Manager*
