Enable Development Computer Communication (Windows)

To communicate from your Windows® development computer to your target computer by using an Ethernet connection, perform a one-time configuration of your Windows development computer Ethernet port to use Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) only. Specify a nonroutable static IP address of the form 192.168.x.x.

  1. On your development computer, from the Control Panel, navigate to Network and Sharing Center.

  2. Click the Local Area Connection for the Ethernet adapter that you are using. It is often listed as Unidentified network.

  3. Click the Properties button.

  4. In the Networking pane, clear all check boxes.

  5. Select the Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) check box.

  6. Click the Properties button.

  7. To specify a static IP address of the form 192.168.x.x, select the Use the following IP address check box.

  8. Configure the IP address boxes:

    IP address192.168.7.2

    Subnet mask255.255.255.0

    Default gateway — leave blank

  9. Click OK.


Do not set the development computer IP address to the gateway IP address (notice the .1 at the end). Using the gateway IP address as the address of your development computer is not supported for Simulink® Real-Time™ communications with your target computer.
