Need Help with console failover via DP8000

I have a Nano w/ Hog 4PC v3.6 and a laptop Hog4 PC networked together using cat 6 to connect to a dp8000 via a network switch for the purposes of console failover. My DP8K recognizes my primary server and connects but once connecting to the show via the laptop, the DP8K looses its connection.

IP Settings: Nano (, laptop ( and DP8K (172.31.02) - subnet mask
Nano, Laptop, DP8K set to NET 1, port 6600.

Is the problem the duplicate Net numbers?

    Yes. I would change the net number in the DP8000 and replicate the universes from the original Net 1 to the new Net # for the Dp8000. That way they will both be sent the same information.

    HOGPC runs an internal virtual DP which is normally using the same net-number like the console. So in your case you have two DPs with the same net-number. If you only use the external DP for your output you could also switch off the internal DP (show start window, settings)
