What IP settings does Maretron recomended for the IPG100 connection to a dedicated N2KView device (DSM800 or MBB100) to work properly?

Maretron recommends the following configuration setting to successfully make a connection between N2KView running on a DSM800 or MBB100 to the IPG100. First, configure the IPG100 using N2KAnalyzer, a DSM150, or a DSM250. The procedure for configuring the IP address on an IPG100 using a DSM150 or DSM250 is as follows:

  • Press the < Enter > key to open the main menus
  • Scroll to the "Configuration..." menu and press < Enter >
  • Scroll to DHCP and press < Enter >
  • scroll to "NO" and press < Enter >

The IPG100 will default to the following values in each entry:

  • IP Address: 192.168.0.2
  • Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
  • Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1
  • Default DNS: 192.168.0.1




Configuration settings for the MBB100 or DSM800:

  • Touch the screen to display the tabs.
  • Select the "Commands & Settings" tab.
  • Select  "Configuration" button in the "Commands & Settings" window.
  • Select the "Network" tab.
  • Uncheck "Use DHCP".
  • Enter the following in the corresponding fields
    • IP Address: 192.168.0.5
    • Netmask: 255.255.255.0
    • Gateway: 192.168.0.1
    • Name Server: 192.168.0.1
  • Press the "Update" button when complete.


The final step is to input the necessary setting into the N2KView connection dialog.

  • Touch the screen to display the tabs.
  • Select the "Commands & Settings" tab.
  • Select  "Connections" button in the "Commands & Settings" window.
  • Enter the following in the corresponding fields:
    • Hostname / IP Address: 192.168.0.2
