Documentation about Art-Net describes, that the IP-address has to be 2.x.y.z or 10.x.y.z. Some programs allow setting the address to other values, but you should try setting the named adresses first.

IMPORTANT: The windows version of libpcap (Winpcap) does not support reading data from WLAN devices. You can use OpenVPN to solve this.

So here you get an explanation how to find a solution for all difficulties with OpenVPN.

OpenVPN HELPS ...

The installation of OpenVPN has several advantages:

  • OpenVPN creates a new interface (new network device).
  • This new devices IP-address can be set independent from your other settings, thus can be set to 2.x.y.z or 10.x.y.z
  • At least on windows the program can read from OpenVPNs network device even if the device is not connectet, on the other hand you can connect the adapter.

After your installation of OpenVPN there is at least one TAP-adapter.

Settings -> General -> Internetprotocol lets you change your ip-address to the required address 10.x.y.z or 2.x.y.z

With Properties -> General -> Configuration -> Advanced you can set the media status to always connected.

Now your computer got a new interface that can be used with artnet.

 

Art-Net network inferface with Linux

To create additional interfaces for Art-Net on Linux you just need a few steps:

  • install openvpn
  • Download this file, extract the contained files and copy them to the folder /etc/openvpn
  • Change the ip-addresses according to your needs
  • restart openvpn ( sudo /etc/init.d/openvpn restart )

Now you can list the new interfaces with ifconfig.
