    1. An address conflict occurs when multiple IP communicators connected to the same bus (SDI or SDI2) use the same switch address. Ensure each module (B426, B420 or B450) connected to the same bus (SDI or SDI2) is addressed differently. Reset power after changing module address.
  • Page 21: Verify The Correct Rps Passcode Is Used When Connecting

    Verify the correct RPS passcode is used when connecting. The RPS code in the panel account must match the code in the physical panel when connecting to Remote Programming Software. When having trouble connecting the RPS Code entry should be verified in both the physical panel and the panel account.
  • Page 22: Trouble Connecting To Rps: 'Connect Via: Ip Direct

    Trouble connecting to RPS: ‘Connect via: IP Direct’. IP Direct requires both the PC and IP communicator to use DHCP. Therefore, both are waiting to be assigned an IP address from the server. Because no server is available when connected using only an Ethernet cable, neither obtains an IP address.
  • Page 23: Trouble Connecting When Using Connect Via: Network

    Trouble connecting when using Connect via: Network The PC must be configured in the same network as the IP communicator. RPS can be used to check the IP communicator addressing if connection ‘via: USB or Enhanced Direct’ is available. Keypad diagnostics can also be used on B- panels or GV4 types can use keypad diagnostics (see below).
