Network Adapters [IPv4]
This panel displays all the Network Adapters for the Internet Protocol version 4 that can be reached by the Control Software.
For each adapter in the list, the IP address, the NETMASK, and the NET NAME are available.
CNC Board List
This panel will show the list of found CNC Boards in the selected Network.
The first list column represents the MAC Address of the CNC Boards.
The second list column represents the Serial Number of the CNC Boards.
CNC Board Data
This panel will show the CNC Board data of the selected item in the CNC Board List.
Some data are READ-ONLY and fixed during the manufacturing of the card.
Some data are disabled and cannot be changed in any way.
  • MAC Address
