To use TrueNET and Duplicators equipped with TrueNET
features, your network
should be configured to use TCP/IP protocol over
10/100Mbit Ethernet. TCP/IP is an
industry standard protocol, and is also used by
the Internet. If you have Internet access
via your network, you are already running TCP/IP.
If you are in doubt about how your
network if configured, please consult your Network
Before a duplicator can be used on any network,
it must be configured with a static IP
address. If you are in doubt about what static IP
addresses are available, please ask
your Network Administrator. Usually the IP address
on your local area network
(LAN) will be something like: 192.168.0.xxx (where
xxx is a number between 1 and
Make sure that the IP address you choose is not
in use by any other computer on your
network. If your computers are configured for automatic
IP assignment, check what
range of addresses they can be assigned (i.e. 192.168.0.1
- 192.168.0.100) and assign
the duplicator a static IP address outside this
Duplicator Network Configuration
To configure the Duplicator, make sure that the
Duplicator is not connected to the
network. This will prevent any unintended network
Turn the power on, and wait until the main menu
appears. From the menu, select the
Setup | Network Setup. Select Duplicator IP and
enter the chosen IP address.
Enter all 12 digits, using 0s where appropriate,
e.g. 192.168.000.010 for 192.168.0.10.
Press the ENTER key to save the setup, and when
saved, turn the duplicator off.
Connect the Duplicator to the network hub or network
switch using a standard CAT5
network cable. If you are connecting the Duplicator
directly to a PC, and not via a
network hub, make sure that you are using a 'Crossover
Cable'. A crossover cable can
only be used to connect two pieces of equipment
directly. Do not use a crossover
cable if are using a hub or network switch.
Turn the Duplicator on and wait for the main menu
to appear. The Duplicator
configuration is now complete.
