Ethernet

The Robotino® is equipped with two Ethernet ports – one for the embedded PC and one for the microcontroller.


Ethernet port to the embedded PC

Function

You can establish a direct connection from your PC/notebook to the control computer in the Robotino® via the Ethernet port to the embedded PC.

On delivery, the embedded PC’s IP address for this connection is 172.27.1.1. Since the embedded PC does not support DHCP, you will need to configure a static IP address for your network card, for example 172.27.1.100 with subnet mask 255.255.0.0, before establishing a connection with the Robotino®.

 















Ethernet port to the microcontroller

Function

You can establish a connection from your PC/notebook to the microcontroller via the second Ethernet port.

On delivery, the microcontroller’s IP address for this connection is 172.27.254.254. The microcontroller does not support DHCP either. This means that you will need to configure a static IP address for your network card for the connection to the embedded PC, for example 172.27.1.100 with subnet mask 255.255.0.0, before establishing a connection with the Robotino®.
