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.

Adapter Properties

Selecting “Change adapter settings” all the ethernet connections will appear on the screen. Choose the one where the ground autopilot is connected and right-click on it. In “Protocol Internet Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)” properties, it is possible to change the ethernet adapter IP. I must be set to: 192.168.137.XXX or 192.168.0.XXX (old versions of VerontePipe), where XXX can be any number, but the ones used in the other adapters.

    2. IP Address: 192.168.137. X (X can be any number available in your network) | Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0

Adding Adapter IP Address

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.
