CAN-GC1e won't connect to Rocrail

Postby Mikevansighem » 04.07.2012, 19:05

I'm Trying to get my CAN-GC1e connectet to rocrail.
In the screen to configurate the central station I filled in the IP-adres of the device and used the standard port 5550, this din't work. With a port scanner I searched four an other port number but I could not find other port than te standard port with a LAN connection : 7, 9, 13, 17, 19, 80, 135, 139, 445, 515. If I tried one of this ports I could connect to the device but I could not use it further.

I think sould filled in an other port number.

Can anyone help me with this problem.

Just reset the device by pushing the FLiM button at power on.

defaults are:
192.168.0.200
5550

You need a computer in the same segment, 192.168.0.x, to be able to connect and to configure it.

You are using host="192.168.1.64" which is not possible after a reset.

I know that but according to my computer is the device set to that ip adres.
When i set it to one of the open ports I can connect but I can't use it.

So maybe it didn't rest or it is changed as soon as I plugged it in.

Anyone idea's

You must not use the IP address of the PC but of the GC1e in the setup...

Just search in the Forum; There are already threads with the same issue.

I did not use the ip adres of my computer.
I used the ip adres, that according to my computer, the CAN-GC1e was given.

Maybe I overlooked the topic about the ip adres, but I could not find it.
Can you give me the link.

I do not understand how you mean that. GC1e does not support HDCP.
You can only change the default TCP/IP address of the GC1e if you can connect to it with the default address which means that you have to change your IP address of your computer.

The same procedure you need if you have bought a Lenz Ethernet Interface or an Active Ethernet component like hubs or wlan access points.

Hi Mikevansighem,
which Operating System do You use on Your Computer?
In a windows OS, go to system, network properties, Internetprotocol, properties.
in German:
Systemsteuerung, Netzwerkverbindung, die Netzwerkverbindung zur CG1e auswählen, Eigenschaften dieser Netzwerkverbindung, Internetprotokoll, Eigenschaften, folgende IP-Adresse verwenden, IP-Adresse mit Subnetzmaske und Gateway eingeben (Windows XP)

I can't find anything like that.

Hello,

I also use WIN7 and it works perfect. Please run a command window (START--> RUN--> CMD.exe (return) ) and type: "ipconfig /all". Please post your LAN ip-settings. As your CAN-GC1e use 192.168.0.200 you should use also this range for your PC to communicate with the GC1e (192.168.0.xxx). To change your ip-adress START --> SYSTEM settings --> NETWORK AND INTERNET --> change ADAPTER properties --> local area connection (right mouse click) --> properties --> IP-Protocol --> properties --> use following adress (e.g. 192.168.0.100, subnet 255.255.255.0) --> ok
Now you should could connect, try in a command window "ping 192.168.0.200".

I hope it works now.
Gruß / Best Regards,

Mario

Instructions on how to change your IP address can be found athttp://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/change-tcp-ip-settings.

This however will only apply if your IP address is "generated" by the computer, chances are address comes from a router and so will need to be changed there which is a different story!

Thanks for the advice It works now as it should.

Except one problem, how do I swith the power of my track on?
To the CanGC1e I've got a CAN-GC3 connected and to that a ord 3 booster.

When I switch the power on the power, the booster output power indicater switches on but on the ord 3 nothing changes.
