If you are using two LPR Processing Units on the same network, you must change the default IP address on one of the units using the Sharp Portal so that there is no conflict created by duplicate IP addresses.

What you should know

If you are only using one LPR Processing Unit on the network, you do not have to change any of the default settings. There will only be a conflict of IP addresses if you are using two units on the same network, sometimes referred to as "daisy-chaining."

You only have to change the IP address on one of the SBC’s. The remaining IP addresses will automatically adjust in sequence:

Procedure

  1. Connect your laptop to one of the LAN ports (LAN1 or LAN2) on the LPR Processing Unit you want to configure.
  2. Log on to the Sharp Portal using the IP address 192.168.10.1 for SBC1, or 192.168.10.2 for SBC2.
    • If you are connected to SBC1: If you change the IP address 192.168.10.11, the remaining components will increment by one (SBC2 will become 192.168.10.12, GVP1 will become 192.168.10.13, and so on).
    • If you are connected to SBC2 (X2S/X2SU only). If you change the IP address to 192.168.10.12, SBC1 will become 192.168.10.11, and the remaining components will increment by one (GVP1 will become 192.168.10.13, GVP2 will become 192.168.10.14, and so on).
  3. Go to the Configuration page.
  4. Under Network settings, click Edit, then select Static and change the IP address.
  5. If applicable, change the Subnet mask and Gateway.
    If the new IP address you choose for the camera has a different subnet, change the Subnet mask.
  6. Restart the camera.

Results

This resolves all IP address conflicts, ll IP address conflicts are resolved, and you can proceed with configuring your system.
