Galil card not connected
« on: July 01, 2010, 04:55:47 PM »
Not sure what I'm doing wrong.  I have the Galil PlugIn set to "Controller 1 - ethernet", I'm using a crossover cable, and Galil Tools talks to and reads the serial # from my DMC-2142 card.  If I hit the enter key while in Galil Tools, I can see the yellow light on the Galil board light each time.

Seems right.

But, when I turn on Mach, it says "Galil card not connected".

What might I be missing?

While I'm looking for help, does the PlugIn read the Abort pin on the Galil?  How?

Hi Flipz01,

You must use SmartTerm. This software is available on galil web site in download section. After that, you can fellow instructions in pdf file coming with the plug-in (http://www.machsupport.com/plugins/GalilPlugIn.pdf).

Thanks Mat.  I just tried that and came back to post that I got it to work.

My problem was that I talked to a Galil tech to ask about setting the static IP address.  He told me I would not need Smart Terminal at all - wrong.

For anyone else reading this:

Set a static IP address for the computer network terminal
Run Galil Tools and connect to the Galil board

Then - run Smart Terminal and do "Controller Registration"
