 +====== IP Basic Settings & Configuration ======
 +
 +===== IP Basic Settings =====
 +
 +Before delivery, each Series 52 system is configured with an IP basic setting. This setting has a certain pattern, unless the customer indicates different requirements in his order.
 +
 +Each controller with an integrated Ethernet interface has a dedicated network address, the so-called MAC address (''​MAC - Media Access Control''​). This address is always unambiguous and unique. DHD owns the MAC address range ''​00:​0A:​63:​00:​00:​00''​ to ''​00:​0A:​63:​FF:​FF:​FF'',​ therefore this address is also referred as serial number of a DHD device.
 +
 +A network-compatible controller module is always identified in a network by its MAC address. As the first 3 Bytes of all DHD MAC addresses always are identical, only the last 3 Bytes are indicated in DHD software applications.

 +**Note**\\ ​ If you find the term "MAC address"​ in the context of a DHD system, it always refers to the last three Bytes of the actual address, although this is, strictly speaking, incorrect.

 +**Important**\\ ​ These last 3 Bytes of the MAC address are used for generating the IP address for the basic setting.

 +Find below an example for the MAC address 10:00:02
 +
 +  * Every single Byte is translated into the decimal format: ''​10h = 16, 00h = 0, 02h = 2''​
 +  * Afterwards the decimal numbers are strung together; 10 is prepended, and all numbers are separated by periods: ''​10.16.0.2''​
 +
 +The subnet mask is automatically set to ''​255.0.0.0'',​ according to the classification of this IP range.
 +
 +Thus the following IP basic setting results for the example device:
 +
 +  * ''​IP address: 10.16.0.2''​
 +  * ''​Subnet mask: 255.0.0.0''​

 +**Tip**\\ ​ See also [[tb8:​maintenance:​start|Maintenance Documentation]].
 +</​WRAP>​
 +
 +The IP settings of a Series 52 system are defined directly in the systems communication controller. To set IP parameters, use the ''​Maintenance Window'',​ an application,​ which is implemented in [[tb5:​start|Toolbox5]],​ [[tb8:​start|Toolbox8]],​ [[sx:​start|SXConfig]] and [[dx:​start|DXConfig]]. ​
 +
 +You can open the Maintenance Window by clicking the according command in the ''​View''​ menu or by pressing ''​F7''​ on your keyboard.
