Network Setup and Remote Focusing

ChrisTallChrisTall Registered User, DL Beta
Up to now I have only used the HOG III with one DP 2000.

I want to make sure I understand network setups before I proceed.

My show setup will be a HOG III and a DP 2000.
However, for programming I want to add a HogPC on stage.
The room is in the round, and all aisles lead to the stage.
Therefore, it is hard to do aisle focus points from FOH.

So, for programming I plan on using
HOG III in "Use default IP setting" mode, and "Enable DHCP and Boot Server"

A 4 port router with wireless, with it's DHCP turned off

DP 2000 set to obtain IP via DHCP

All on Port 6600
HOG III as the show server and console 1
plugged into the router with a non-crossover.

HOG PC with Run Server off, as console 2
on the wireless.

When I'm done programming I go back to the crossover cable straight into the DP 2000.

Am I close?

    Sounds good to me.

    Just keep in mind to keep that the software on both the desk and the remote should be the same version.

    Personally I prefer to manually set the IP adresses and subnet myself, but that's just a preference- I like to know whats what and where.

    If this is a setup you feel you might be using in the future you should be alright just leaving this in tact rather than going back to the cross over.

    Thanks Eric.

    I plan on doing a test setup a couple weeks in advance too.
    That way I've got time to get comfortable with this.
