  • Thank you for purchasing our controller and for your feedback.

    NetFinder discovery protocol uses UDP broadcast to detect and configure controllers on the network. Since it is broadcast based, it can locate controllers with any IP, or even those with no IP. Hence the reason for the default address of Using a private IP as the default will not be of much help since the customer will have to configure the PC/laptop network interface to be in the same subnet, as you have to do with most hubs and switches. NetFinder saves the customer from having to re-configure their network.

    We have a command line version of the NetFinder tool (Python script) that is OS X compatible: http://prologix.biz/downloads/nfcli.tar.gz

    Prologix GPIB-ETHERNET uses two ports. UDP/3040 is used by the NetFinder for discovery, and TCP/1234 for GPIB communication.

  • Please contact Prologix at support@prologix.biz for all questions, including those about compatibility.

  • Yes, they are compatible.

  • Relius Dispensgun sounds like a great tool. Which model do you use? And where is it available? Thanks.

  • Prologix GPIB-LAN does not the cable length restrictions of USB, and can even be used over a wireless net. Further, no host side drivers are needed. Also, when assigned a unique IP (static or DHCP) GPIB-LAN can be accessed from anywhere on the Internet.

No public wish lists :(
