Mach4 ESS not responding
« on: November 25, 2016, 05:12:42 PM »
At first all seemed good with Mach4 motor setup but it would not see the motor for tuning.  Then I rebooted and the ESS IP address changed to and will not allow even with the utility and jumper.  Mach will not run now.  I plan to format the drive and start over without Norton or wireless internet then add Norton and wireless through USB once Mach is set up.  Does that make sense? Or would Norton or wireless not be the problem?

There is also an error that says there are 2 computers on the network with the same IP address and I could not resolve that problem either.  Is there a way to uninstall Mach4 and ESS so they can then be reinstalled?  When I go to uninstall Mach4 is not on the list--strange... ???

All fixed and wow! Is ESS and Mach4 a big improvement over Mach3.  The same motor and lead screw is about 3 times faster with no stalls! So happy I switched!

Problems from earlier post solved by uninstalling from the uninstall module in the Mach4hobby directory then reinstalled everything in about 3 minutes.  I had done it so many times with failure that it was a great eureka moment when that stepper motor started to scream across the table!

Excellent result.
