Assigning a Static IP Address
Spectracom recommends assigning a static IP address to NetClock, even if the unit is connected to a DHCP server.
This can be accomplished in several ways:
- Via the keypad and information display on the front panel of the unit, see Setting Up an IP Address via the Front Panel.
(NetClock 9483 only; If you are setting up a NetClock 9489 unit – which does not have a front panel information display and keypad – see Setting Up a Temporary IP Address Remotely.)
- By connecting the NetClock to an existing DHCP network, temporarily using the assigned DHCP address, see Setting Up a Static IP Address via a DHCP Network.
- By connecting a Personal Computer to NetClock via a serial cable, see Setting Up an IP Address via the Serial Port.
- By connecting a Personal Computer directly to NetClock via a dedicated Ethernet cable, see Setting up a Static IP Address via Ethernet Cable.
