Nope. Not connected via router.
WiFi turned off on both (since WiFi seems to want to connect to everything and anything like…umm…[analogy to promiscuity here])
I guess I didn’t need a crossover cable, despite all the info I gleaned earlier on from random web searches. (Step by Step guide would be helpful). This is now workign with a regular ethernet cable as you mentioned. (Didn’t do that before)
I still have no idea, but my assumption at this point without anyone pointing me to supporting documentation so I can figure this out for myself, is that I did a stupid earlier on that nerf’d my ethernet laptop to laptop connection. Whatever this was, I undid it. It’s working now.
However I’m extremely nervous about adding this element to my rig, so I’ll apologise in advance if/when something bizarre rears its ugly head and I freak right on out. LOL
Nevertheless, I have the two systems talkign to each other. Laptop 1 is a BomeBox emulator (just running MTPro so I can refine script details without having to upload to the Box every change - which is a PITA, IMO). Laptop 2 is running DMXIS (DMX lighting control). With MTPro, I can actually have the lights do stuff even after I press [Stop] on the sequencer and I’m So Freakin Happy!
All that gobbley-gook: just really hoping there’d be a Bome Network for Idiots doc someday, because to this old guy who thought he’d never step away from DIN MIDI has gone to loving USB MIDI and now tentatively infatuated with ethernet MIDI.
sorry. low blood sugar.
going to fix that now
Happy New Year!
