I am using MA3 Command Wing XT (software version 18.104.22.168) and I want to connect an Artnet output to a macbook pro 2015 to use Resolume, or another software.
I am quite confused with the Network connections. I’ll explain what I went through and I hope this makes any sense…
I configured the second network port with an IP 22.214.171.124 / 255.0.0.0
Then I went to DMX PROTOCOLS > ARTNET
configured everything correctly (Interface, enable input/output, created an enabled Artnet Data with the right universes, etc)
At this time I was expecting to open my mac (in the same IP range, checked) and start receiving artnet dmx information. Nothing
I checked with Resolume, Wireshark, Artnet View… No dmx through this network.
After checking and rechecking the configurations, I finally went to the ma3 NETWORK Menu and used the same 126.96.36.199 IP on the MA-Net Interface and Enabled the network.
And immediately I started receiving artnet dmx signals on my mac.
This wasn’t what I was expecting.
Usually I use a main network (on the fist network port) with a different IP range to control my dimmers and nodes with sACN, and also to use remotes.
I want a secondary network connection for Artnet only.
Since I want ro use it as a "secondary connection", I was expecting to be able to connect this Artnet network enabling it on the DMX PROTOCOLS menu only.
Am I thinking in a wrong way or am I just showing how ignorant I am about grandma3?
Thanks in advance!
