Can the Hog 4 Super Widget be assigned to any port number?

I am curious if the super widget can be assigned another port number aside from 6600 in the Hog4 PC platform. Can anybody help?

    As the superwidget works as part of the virtual DP8000 I don´t see a problem why it should not work.
    In larger network-setups it is sometimes necessary to use other ports than 6600.

    Each HogPC has the option of running a Virtual DP8000, which the widgets and super widgets utilize. You can change the port number for that PC computer but not for the widget itself.

    So just as servers can have different port numbers, the widget plugged into each will be part of that port.

    (On PC systems without widgets attached like tablets, it is advised not to run a virtual DP8000 to use less resources on the computer.)

    The DP will follow the Show Setting port Number (6600) of the console.
    You can map a superwidget to any of the 8 outputs that are active from the 4PC system.
    You can change the NetNumber of the DP in the setting window from launcher. By this I mean you can change the internal node to run as 1 or 2 or 3 or what ever.

    Hope this helps!

    In Addition to what Michael said:

    The internal virtual DP is accessable in a network from any other console

    So if you have for example 2 Fullboars running in a Network with net-number 1 & 2 that will give you 2 DPs in your network and the possibility to run up to 24 DMX Lines (12 from each console)
