Ethernet Connection PT104

Postby Luca Minzoni » Tue May 03, 2016 10:03 am

Hello,
i have some troubles when i try to connect my PT104 using the ethernet connection. I am using Ubuntu 14.04. I created my wired connection and set the PT ip address using a windows machine. The PT ip address is 192.168.1.10. I set my pc ip as 192.168.1.11 and then i connected the PT and the pc using a switch. From terminal i can ping my PT, i see the lights flickering so they "see" each other. But when i lunch the software ./usbpt104con and i try to connect via ethernet, i insert the ip address of the pt 192.168.1.10 and i get the error

Enter IP address of the PT-104: 192.168.1.10:80
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'char const*'
Annullato (core dump creato)

I don't understand what i did wrong. Thank you for your help, cheers
Luca.

Hi Luca,

There is a known issue with the Linux driver for connecting using the Ethernet connection. A fix should be available when the driver is next updated (no timescale at present).

Have you tried specifying the serial number instead of the IP address?

Alternatively, the Ethernet protocol is documented in the Programmer's Guide, so you can use this instead of the API functions.

Thank you for the answer, i am currently using the ethernet protocol and it is working, or at least there is communication between my pc and the PT-104. Thank you again, best regards
Luca.
