6890 and 5973N communication issues

Hi all, I'm trying to find instructions for setting up the communication for this setup: 6890N 5973N, MS Chemstation.

The GC, computer, and MS are connected to the bus in the right ports.

To start,  I ran the Agilent MSD Configuration program and set the IP addresses. 10.1.1.101 for the GC and 10.1.1.102 for the MSD

On the config panel on the GC, I entered the recommended IP addresses and gateway.
In the 5973 panel, I went to +Network and found the following:
"MSD IP via Keyboard" is set to 192.168.254.12 That doesn't match the recommended setting of 10.1.1.102 , can that be changed using the led panel?
Also, the ping Chemstation times out,
there's no gateway address, no chemstation IP, no GC IP address.
Do I need to figure out how to use the bootp program, or is there a simpler solution?
TIA!

  • Windows 7 still?  What is the IP address of the network card that these are connected to?  Is it 10.1.1.100 ?  You have all of the LAN cables connected to a network switch - is that what you mean by 'bus" ?   You could change the computer NIC to 192.168.254.10, the GC to 192.168.254.11 and use the MS at 192.168,254.12.

    It has been a very long time since I did this to a 5973N.
