  9. 9. Section 1: Introduction Ethernet networks have become commonplace as a means of connecting lighting and other entertainment equipment together across theatres, theme parks, stadi- ums, retail and architectural spaces. Conventional Ethernet switches designed for office environments have failed to address the needs of these systems. The Flying Pig Systems Ethernet Switch offers advanced features in a rugged and easy to use package for the entertainment environment. The Ethernet Switch has a mix of connectors back and front for easy connectivity. Normal RJ45s are provided at the back for internal connections within a rack. Rugged Ethercon sockets on the front offer a robust connection for portable equipment or system testing. Gigabit connections are supported for large bandwidth backbones. Ethernet connections over standard copper cable are limited to 100 metres. To allow for longer distances, the Ethernet Switch has two slots for fibre modules. These support fibre optic links at Gigabit speed up to 10km using appropriate fibre. An auxilliary 1U face-panel is available with rugged Lemo fibre connectors; see Auxilliary Panel (6.2). These fibre connectors make the link robust enough for the toughest touring environments. A typical lighting network is shown in Figure 1.1, “A Typical Network with Two Consoles”. 4 DMX universes DMX Processor Wholehog III console 4 DMX universes Ethernet switch DMX Processor Wholehog III console Figure 1.1. A Typical Network with Two Consoles The Ethernet Switch incorporates a management processor and display, allowing you to monitor and manage network traffic both from the front panel of the switch itself or remotely using either a Wholehog III console or web browser. You can connect network devices to any of the Ethernet Switch's ports. Ports 1 to 16 support 10 and 100 Mbps links. Ports 17 and 18 also support 1 Gbps links. When an RJ45 or Ethercon is connected to the switch, the switch will automatic- Flying Pig Systems 7
  10. 10. Section 1: Introduction ally configure the link to support the maximum speed and duplex mode (half- or full-duplex) of the attached device. The switch will also sense whether the cable is straight-through or crossover and automatically configure the connection accordingly. You can use Fibre optic links by fitting a GBIC module (purchased separately) into one of the slots at the rear of the switch; see Fibre Optic Connection Modules (6.1). 1.1 Key The following conventions are used in the text of the manual: Setting Up the Ethernet A cross reference to another part of the manual.

  11. 11. Section 2: Setting Up the Ethernet Switch 2.1 Power You can connect the Ethernet Switch to a mains supply of between 100 and 240V AC. 2.2 Working with Ethernet Switches You can control the Ethernet Switch's functions from the front panel controls, from a Wholehog III console, or from a web browser. Using a console or a web browser are described below; the remainder of this manual assumes that you are using the switch's front panel controls. 2.2.1 Using the Front Panel Controls Menus allow you to navigate to the various screens and functions: Move the cursor through the options backwards. Select the option currently highlighted by the cursor. Move the cursor through the options forwards. The menus use the following conventions: OK Confirm changes and return to the previous screen. Cancel Abandon changes and return to the previous screen. Close Return to the previous screen. To set a numerical value: 1. Move the cursor to the value you want to change. 2. Press the key, and the first digit of the number will be highlighted. 3. Use the key to change the value, and the and keys to select a different digit of the number. 4. When you have finished, press until no digits are selected. You can then use and to select options in the usual way. 2.2.2 Using with the Wholehog III Console You can monitor the Ethernet Switch using the Wholehog III console in the same way as other network processors such as DMX Processors and MIDI/Timecode Flying Pig Systems 9
  12. 12. Section 2: Setting Up the Ethernet Switch Processors. To be ‘visible’ to the console on the network, the Ethernet Switch should be set to have the same port number as the console; see Setting the Port Number (2.3.3). It is not currently possible to perform full configuration of the Ethernet Switch settings from the console. 2.2.3 Control from a Web Browser You can configure the Ethernet Switch from a web browser using a personal computer connected to the network: 1. Check that the Ethernet Switch's webserver is enabled; see Configuring the Webserver Interface (3.1). 2. Connect your computer to the network and start the web browser. 3. Determine the IP address of your switch: see Checking and Setting the IP Address (2.3.2). 4. Point your browser at this IP address, for example: http://172.31.0.20/. 5. You can view and change Network status and settings from the web browser. 2.3 Network Settings 2.3.1 Checking and Setting the Net Number The Net Number is the number used to identify the Ethernet Switch for remote configuration. It is displayed on the main screen of the switch in the top right hand corner. To set the Net Number: 1. Main → Network Configuration : navigate to the Network Con- figuration screen. 2. Set the Net Number to any value between 00 and 99. 3. OK : return to the Main screen. 2.3.2 Checking and Setting the IP Address In addition to the Net Number used by consoles to identify the Ethernet Switch, each network device needs to have an IP address and Subnet Mask set, so that other devices and personal computers can identify them. The easiest way to do this is to use DHCP, which is a system that allows network devices to set themselves up automatically. One device on the network (for example a Wholehog III console) acts a DHCP server, and other devices are assigned an IP address by the server. 10 Flying Pig Systems
  13. 13. Section 2: Setting Up the Ethernet Switch There are times when it is desirable to set a fixed or 'static' IP address. This will be the case when there is no DHCP server, or the network is shared with unre- lated equipment. If you intend to monitor your switch using a web browser, a static IP address may also be useful. You should contact your system adminis- trator to determine the optimum settings for your network. To set a static IP address: 1. Main → Network Configuration → IP Status → IP Config : navigate to the IP Config screen. 2. Set DHCP Off. 3. Set the IP Address and Subnet Mask as required. 4. OK : return to the IP Status screen. 5. OK : return to the Network Configuration screen. 6. OK : return to the Main screen. 7. Main → Control Panel : navigate to the Control Panel. 8. Hard Reset : the DMX Processor needs a hard reset for changes to take effect. 2.3.3 Setting the Port Number The Port Number identifies a channel which the Ethernet Switch's management processor uses to communicate and should be set to the same value as for other equipment on the Network. To set the Port Number: 1. Main → Network Configuration : navigate to the Network Con- figuration screen. 2. Set the Port Number as required. 3. OK : return to the Main screen. The default port number for the Wholehog III family of equipment islt is 6600. Flying Pig Systems 11
  14. 14. Section 3: Options and Defaults The Ethernet Switch has various options and controls, set in the Control Panel screen: • Main → Control Panel You can revert all settings to their default values by selecting Set to Defaults. 3.1 Configuring the Webserver Interface You can control the Ethernet Switch remotely from a web browser. To enable the webserver: 1. Main → Ports → Global → Webserver 2. Check the box to enable the webserver. 3. Set the port number (0-65535). By default this is 80 allowing browsers direct access. 4. OK : return to main menu. Tip When the webserver is enabled, Ethernet Switch settings can be accessed from anywhere on the network. For show security, you may wish to disable the webserver once you have finished configur- ing the Ethernet Switch. 3.2 Locking the Controls You can use the Lock function to lock the Ethernet Switch's controls: 1. In the Control Panel, select Lock. 2. Enter your chosen 4-digit code number, and select OK to con- firm. The DMX Processor is now locked. » To unlock, enter the correct four digit code. Important Make sure that you keep a record of your lock code. The Ethernet Switch cannot be unlocked without it. Flying Pig Systems 13
  15. 15. Section 3: Options and Defaults 3.3 Backlight Off Time Selecting Backlight in the Control Panel opens a screen where you can set the delay time before the backlight goes off. The Permanent setting keeps the light on continually. 3.4 Watchdog The Watchdog feature automatically restarts the Ethernet Switch if its software stops running for some reason. Watchdog is on by default, and generally it is best to leave it switched on. However, if you suspect that an Ethernet Switch is not working correctly, you may want to turn Watchdog off so that you can see any error messages before restarting it: 1. In the Control Panel, select Watchdog. 2. Deselect the Watchdog checkbox, and select OK. 3.5 Resetting the Ethernet Switch There are two types of reset: soft and hard. Soft Reset resets the Ethernet Switch so that it re-initialises communication with the network. Hard Reset is equivalent to turning off and on the mains power. You can do both types of reset from the Control Panel. 14 Flying Pig Systems
  16. 16. Section 4: Checking the Ethernet Switch's Status 4.1 Viewing Status on the Front Panel Display You can view the link status and connection speed of all the ports on the front panel display by navigating to the Ports screen: • Main → Ports : navigate to the main ports screen. This displays all the available ports on a single screen; see Figure 4.1, “Screen displaying ports overview”. The connection speed is shown below each port for all active links. Figure 4.1. Screen displaying ports overview You can view detailed information about an individual port by selecting that port. This displays the port name, the port type and information about connected equipment; see Figure 4.2, “Screen displaying port status”. Figure 4.2. Screen displaying port status Tip You can change the port name using the web browser interface; see Control from a Web Browser (2.2.3). 4.2 Front and Rear Panel Status Indicators The lights on the front and rear panels show the Ethernet Switch's status. 4.2.1 General Status Indicators (front panel) Label Colour Status When On 3.3V Red Management processor power OK 1.2V Red Switch controller power OK Flying Pig Systems 15

  27. 27. Glossary 1 10 Base-T An older flavour of Ethernet, that is slower (10 MBits per second) than the 100 Base-T used by Wholehog III components. If con- nected to other equipment that only sup- ports this flavour, then Wholehog III com- ponents will automatically detect this, and run their Ethernet connections at this slower speed. However this is not the recommen- ded way to set up your network. See Also 100 Base-T. 100 Base-T A flavour of Ethernet, that supports data rates of up to 100 MBits per second. All Wholehog III components support this fla- vour of Ethernet, and comply with all relev- ant standards, so networking equipment designed for 100Base-T should be compat- ible with the Wholehog III. See Also 10 Base-T. C console The user interface of a lighting control sys- tem. The Wholehog III console is one com- ponent of a network that may include other Wholehog III desks, expansion wings, ex- ternal devices, offline editors and visual- isers, along with dimmers and fixtures. cross-over cable When you connect two Wholehog III com- ponents (or computers) together directly, you need to use a special type of Ethernet cable called a cross-over cable. This is differ- ent from the normal type of Ethernet cable used with hubs and switches (see below). We supply a cross-over cable with each console and DMX Processor. See Also Ethernet.

You should talk to the administrator of the net- work you want to connect to to find out more. See Also Ethernet, IP address. E Ethernet A defined way of connecting computer equipment together. It comes in a variety of flavours. See Also 10 Base-T, 100 Base-T, IP address, hub. F FAQ Short for Frequently Asked Questions. H hub See switch. I IP address On an Ethernet network, each Wholehog III component has an address, called an IP address, used to identify it. You can usually use the default addresses, but if you are connecting to an existing network you may need to specify a different address, accord- ing to how your network is configured. See Also Ethernet. M multicast A network protocol or language that com- puters use to talk to each other over Ether- net. The Wholehog III uses this standard protocol, which means that it can safely be connected to other networks of computers and will not interfere with them. For show- critical situations we recommend running the Wholehog III on its own independent network. See Also Ethernet.

See Also console. P port number On a computer network, the port number defines a particular type of network traffic. In the case of a Wholehog III network, each show running on the network has its own port number, so that a console can identify and connect to a particular show. S server See show server. show server The Wholehog III that ‘owns’ a show. Other consoles may join the show, but the original console that created the show will remain the show server. subnet mask A local mask that specifies which parts of the IP address specify the subnetwork, and which parts identify the host. For example, an IP Address of 172.31.1.20 with a subnet mask of 255.255.0.0 specifies host 1.20 on subnet 172.31.0.0. See Also IP address. switch When you want to connect more than two Wholehog III components (or computers) together, then you need a special piece of equipment to allow them to interconnect called an ethernet switch. See Also Ethernet. T TCP/IP A network protocol or language that com- puters use to talk to each other over Ether- net. The Wholehog III uses this standard protocol, which means that it can safely be connected to other networks of computers and will not interfere with them.
