The IP address consists of four “octets” with three digits in each octet separated by a period. For example, a typical router default IP address is 192.168.1.1. (Leading zeros are not required if the octet is less than three digits.)
When connecting the DSX to the site’s local area network (LAN), the IP address you enter should be provided to you by the site network administrator. It is essential that the address not duplicate that of any other device connected to the network.
If you are connecting your PC to the system’s ethernet port using a standard crossover cable, the IP address 192.168.1.250 should be adequate. Set your PC IP address to 192.168.1.249.
