How to Set a Fixed / Static IP Address

Below are detailed instructions on how to set a fixed IP address on different device types. Since all KLANG products use DHCP (and zero conf if no DHCP server is found on the network) by default, we recommend the following procedure to configure a KLANG system including KLANG:app on a computer with fixed IPs.

  1. Connect all devices to a network (at this point, they should all use DHCP, no fixed IP addresses assigned, yet)
  2. Turn off all additional network ports on your computer, especially disable WiFi
  3. Power cycle all devices
  4. Open KLANG:app and wait for the devices to appear in CONFIG > CONNECT (this might take up to 30 seconds)
  5. Then follow instructions below for “KLANG processor / KLANG:kontroller”. Once successful, these devices will disappear in KLANG:app.
  6. Repeat the previous step for all devices that should be configured with a fixed IP address.
  7. At last, proceed with the steps for your windows or mac computer
If additional KLANG devices should be configured with a fixed IP address, first follow the instructions below for your computer, but DISABLED the fixed IP and use DHCP instead. Then follow the steps as in the list above.
DiGiCo Consoles use a static / fixed IP address of 192.168.x.x with a 255.255.0.0 subnet mask by default.
Make sure your computer has an IP address in the same subnet as the DiGiCo console and uses the same subnet mask. Some DiGiCo console use a second IP address for the engine, that sits just above the surface IP address

Example:
Console/Surface has IP address 192.168.2.10 and subnet mask 255.255.0.0
(Engine could occupy the IP address 192.168.2.11)
Set your computer to e.g. this IP address 192.168.2.12 and subnet mask 255.255.0.0. We assume that this IP address is not used on the network and we will use this in the screenshots below and 192.168.2.22 for the KLANG hardware device as an example.

KLANG processor / KLANG:kontroller

KLANG:app > login to KLANG processor or :kontroller

CONFIG > INFO > Set > Set Fixed/Static IP

Enter IP address and Subnet mask

It is important to make sure that KLANG processors / :kontrollers and your computer use IP addresses in the same subnet and they use the exact same subnet mask for KLANG:app auto device discovery to work properly.

Windows 10 / 11

Type “settings” into windows search bar

Choose Settings

Click “Open”


Choose your Ethernet adaptor

Choose “Private Network”

IP assignment > Click “Edit”

Choose Edit IP settings > “Manual”

Enabled IPv4

Input the IP address you want to be static.

It is important to make sure that KLANG processors / :kontrollers and your computer use IP addresses in the same subnet and they use the exact same subnet mask for KLANG:app auto device discovery to work properly.


Click “Save”

MacOS

“About Mac” > “System preferences”


Select “Network” > choose your network adaptor on the right


Select “Details…”


Select “TCP/IP” on the left


Select “Configure IPv4” > “Manually”

Enter the desired static / fixed IP address and Subnet mask and Router/Gateway

It is important to make sure that KLANG processors / :kontrollers and your computer use IP addresses in the same subnet and they use the exact same subnet mask for KLANG:app auto device discovery to work properly.
