Connections

The Connections tab contains the options for configuring the connection of Veronte Ground to the PC.

When using Veronte Pipe for first time, it is necessary to configure the connection with Veronte Units. Once it has been done, Veronte Units will be automatically detected by Veronte Pipe (1).

PC Ethernet Connection

Veronte unit on the control station must be connected to the same network than the PC running Veronte Pipe. In order to establish communications with Veronte, PC network interface IP must be in the same range as Veronte.

Veronte Autopilot default IP is 192.168.0.106 so PC Ethernet adapter settings must be set on the 0 subnet on first system startup (depending on the version can be 137 instead of 0).

IP can be changed in adapter settings in the Windows control panel.

Adding Adapter IP Address

  • !! Once Veronte Pipe is started, if both units are shown on the right bar but they do not initialize check the network adapter setting.

Veronte units in version 2.1.x or below requires an IP address of the form 192.168.137.X and from version 2.1.X onwards, Veronte requires an IP address of the form 192.168.0.X. Following the aforementioned steps, your PC will add both of them.
