Selects the Ethernet adapter that the SCT computer uses to perform the following operations to a supervisory engine:
- upload/download supervisory engines (applies to software images, uploads, and downloads)
- apply patches to supervisory engines
- upload/download field controllers via Trunk Utilities
The drop-down box lists all active Ethernet adapters on the SCT computer. The Select Ethernet Adapter dialog box reports the following: name of connection type, description of selected Ethernet adapter, MAC address, IPv4 address, and IPv6 address. If the computer has wired and wireless Ethernet adapters, for best results, we strongly recommend that you select a wired Ethernet adapter.
