The following scenario is typical when you install an SNE on an existing building network. Your computer must be connected to the network. The computer must be a DHCP client or configured to use a static IP address appropriate for the network.
- Verify that your network administrator has updated the DNS server and the DHCP server with the SNE Ethernet MAC address and the SNE host name.
- With your computer or commissioning laptop connected to the building network, open SCT Pro. This tool listens for, and shows, the IP address information of the SNE as it comes online.
- Connect the SNE to the network with an Ethernet patch cable.
- Connect 24 VAC supply
power to the
SNE. Then wait for the
SNE to complete the startup
and initialization sequence. SCT Pro indicates the
current IP address of the network engine.Note: The startup and initialization sequence may take up to 10 minutes to complete. If the DHCP server is not online when the SNE is powered on (or if the SNE Ethernet cable is disconnected and reconnected with no DHCP server online), the SNE assumes a unique IP address between 169.254.0.1 and 169.254.255.254 and a subnet mask of 255.255.0.0. This is a feature of Automatic Private Internet Protocol Addressing (APIPA) that applies when DHCP is enabled in the SNE (factory default).
- Go to Installing Launcher to access the SNE, follow all instructions, then return to the next step in this section.
- After you have
completed the steps in Installing Launcher to access the SNE,
including the step for logging in to the
SNE, select the
SNE device object in the Navigation panel, and drag it to the Display
panel of the Site Management Portal UI. The Focus tab for the selected
SNE appears in the Display panel.Figure 1. SNE Focus Tab - Basic
- Go to the Network tab and
verify the Computer Name and Domain Name values. Change these values to the
assigned values for your network site. Also verify the Allow http attribute. If trusted certificates
are not deployed to the engine, communication between the engine and its clients
occurs over port 80. If you need to close the network engine's incoming http
communication port (port 80), select False for Allow http. Otherwise, keep
this attribute at its default value (True).Figure 2. SNE Network Tab - Edit Mode
- Go to the Focus tab and check the SNE Object Name. Change the Object Name to the descriptive label used to identify the SNE in the Site Management Portal UI and SCT.
Depending on the DNS server configuration, the SNE should be reachable from the subnet on which the SNE resides or from other subnets.
