Been trying to set the IP of my EMX board, using the alpha (V001) and now beta (V011) tools.
Is there any way to STOP the loaded application from running whilst running your deploy tool ???.
It would appear that there is some ‘interaction’ between an app which is trying to run when the config tool is used.
The failures I have are that I cannot set the static IP address (or subnet or gateway). The tool says it is done, but if I disconnect, reload the tool and read the settings - it is back to ‘0,0,0,0’ again.
The tool constantly says the board is not connected, but then says the requested action has been performed :-((.
I further ‘suspect’ that the situation is made worse if the ethernet cable is unplugged.when trying to set the IP address.
I have reported in the past my suspicions regarding the config settings - and that they can be affected by the code. When I previously set my code to use a fixed IP (//ethernet.NetworkInterface.EnableStaticIP(“192.168.1.111”, “255.255.255.0”, “192.168.1.1”) this appeared to corrupt the config settings.
The above issues combine to make it very difficult to actually set up the network settings for the board.
Combine this with the previously reported DHCP shortcomings and life becomes very difficult indeed. NB The DHCP issue reported earlier has now ‘gone away’ after replacing my router. This simply shows that different routers behave differently - and NOT that the previous router was faulty :-O.
Hope this feedback helps - and that someone can advise how to halt a running app whilst running the config tool ??.
HAH - luckily I copied this message before trying to send it - as I was yet again logged out by the system :-((.
