(1) Ethernet Media Access Control (MAC) Address
(2) Internet Protocol Host Name
(3) Internet Protocol (IPv4) Address
(4) Internet Protocol (IPv4) Network Mask
The “Ethernet (MAC) Address” (1) is a read only value. The “Ethernet (MAC) Address” is programmed into the device at manufacture time. The “Ethernet (MAC)” is used in order to uniquely identify the node on the network to which the PL1000E is connected. The address value will be required by the network administrator when configuring the device for operation on the network.
The Internet Protocol Host Name (2) is a free form text field where the host name may be entered. By default, the IP address is “192.168.1.1.”. The address must be changed if the PL1000E is to be used in a networked environment. The IP value is limited to 25 characters. The Internet Protocol Host Name is assigned by the network administrator.
The Internet Protocol (IPv4) Address (3) is configured according to the kind of network environment in which it is installed. The IP address value must be configured with the value defined by the network administrator.
The Internet Protocol (IPv4) Network Mask (3) is sometimes called the Subnet Mask. This value specifies what range of IP addresses are considered to be on the same local subnet. The Internet gateway value for this configuration is “255.255.255.0”. The default value for this configuration indicates that all devices with the same first three octets as this device, will be considered to be on the same local subnet. Consult the network administrator in order to determine the appropriate value for the configuration.
The Network Default Gateway Internet Protocol (IPv4) Address (5) is the address of the networks’ Internet gateway. The initial value for this parameter is “0.0.0.0”. The value of the parameter must be set if the PL1000E is to be used in a networked environment. Contact the network administrator in order to determine the appropriate Network Default Gateway IP address.
The DHCP (6) has two possible values:
- Disabled (Default)
The defaults are:
- IP address:192.168.1.1
- Network Mask: 255.255.255.0
- Default Gateway: 184.108.40.206
