Loytec LIPs in Classic networks limitations

Issue

How many LIPs can be used in Plug and Play mode when used in a Vista classic network

Product Line

TAC Vista

Environment

Loytec LIP's configured in plug and Play mode on a LNS network.

Cause

A limitation of 5 LIPs can be used on the Plug and Play mode on a single LNS network

Resolution

Select LIPs with the additional LON ports to allow your database to fit into 5 LIP limitation.

 The options to enable a larger system than 5 LIPs are listed below:

  1. Use a network management tool like NL220 or LonMaker to configure the LIPs as routers.
  2. Purchase another NIC852 license and create another LNS network with a separate LIP as a config server.
