Some Endura devices require DHCP in order to initially obtain an IP address. This can become problematic in an all static environment.
Part 1: Obtain an IP address via TFTPD32
- Download and unzip TFTPD32
- Set the IP address of the computer to 192.168.0.2 with a Subnet Mask of 255.255.255.0
- Unzip the TFTPD32 file to the computer and run tftpd32.exe
- Click on the Settings tab at the bottom of the screen
- Click on the DHCP tab
- Set the IP pool starting address to the address to be assigned to the first device. (ex. 192.168.0.100)
- Set the Size of pool to a little more than the number of devices needing an ip address. (ex. 50)
- Leave the Boot File field blank
- Set the Mask to the desired subnet mask. (ex. 255.255.255.0)
Leave the Domain Name and Additional Option fields as they are. The window should appear like the following:
- Press Save (Located just to the right of the configuration fields)
- Connect the device(s) needing an IP address.
- Devices that obtain an IP address through TFTPD32 will appear in the box at the bottom of the TFTPD32 window.
- Attempt to ping these devices.
