Art-Net: Finding the IP Address of a product

There are three methods for finding the IP address of an Art-Net product:

    • Connect using DMX-Workshop, this will display the product in a network list along with its IP address. DMX-Workshop can be downloaded from here.
    • Ping: Open a command line window and use the ping command. If the products are on the normal Art-Net address range, type: “ping 2.255.255.255”. This approach is best on a Mac as Macs do not support net-bios.
    • Perform a net-bios search (Windows only). To do this, connect the product to your laptop’s network, open browser and type in the net-bios name of the product you are using (see below). Occasionally the net-bios cache in the browser gets out of date. To flush the cache and restart, type the following in the browser window: nbtstat -R
