Default Eucon - S3 - Mac

A lot has been written on this topic, but I have a simple question:

If I forget to turn on the S3 before I turn on my Mac, is the only solution to start over again - turn everything off, and then on again in correct order?

Default Re: Eucon - S3 - Mac

it very much depends on your setup...

with Eucon 3.3.1 the sequence never made any difference in my setup.
(which doesn't mean Eucon wouldn't hang once in a while).

My S3 starts with the Mac via a master/slave powerbar.
But my transport doesn't. If I turn that on later, it shows up no prob.

This wasn't the case in older Eucon versions...

Hope that helps...

Thanks for your reply, made.

Do you have a fixed IP, or is it set to auto?

I guess that as long the S3 has opened the Ethernet port and Eucon can "see" the S3, other EU-equipment will connect fine at a later stage.

It seems to me that if no Eucon-equipment is connected at boot, the Ethernet port stay "closed".
If S3 is turned on later, the Ethernet port will not recognize this, and naturally Eucon will not "see" S3.

Is there a way to get the Ethernet port to discover that a unit is turned on?

Why not connect things to a single power strip so when you hit the master switch, everything lights before you hit the power button on the computer? That's what I've done for years and its never been an issue(actually, I go one better and have my computer, interfaces and all drives connected to a power strip that plugs into an APC UPS for protection from power fluctuations too....save my bacon a few times and likely the best $169 I ever spent)

Thanks, albee1952 :)
There is no problem for me to start up everything in the right order. But from time to time it happens I don't do that
So I guess I then have to reboot :)
