dVnet: Using dual-NIC configuration
Posted by Wayne Howell on 02 April 2015 02:55 PM

dVnet has the ability to operate as a network translator / soft-patch. This can be done using one or two network cards. 

The input protocol is always Art-Net and the output protocol can be selected between Art-Net, KiNet and sACN. This example describes how to translate Art-Net to KiNet on separate network cards. The Art-Net is assumed to be in the standard 2.x.y.z IP range with a subnet mask of 255.0.0.0. The lighting console generating the Art-Net should be set to broadcast, the input network NIC of dVnet should be set to an IP address of, for example, 2.0.0.100.

Assuming that the KiNet is to output on the 192.168.10.x range (subnet 255.255.255.0) the output Nic should be set to an IP address of, for example, 192.168.10.100.

In dVnet, the output Nic must be selected as the active NIC in the driver window.

The attached files can be loaded to provide detail of the method by which the patch is set. In the first example, Art-Net is received on Pipes 101-110 and converted to KiNet Port Out protocol on pipes 1-10. These are unicast to 192.168.10.1 through 192.168.10.10
