To change the IP of a TEC-X, a Tesira server-class device must be on the same subnet as your TEC-X. Please note the TEC-X will be configured in DHCP mode from the factory with a "Link Local" address (IP: 169.254.x.x Subnet mask: 255.255.0.0) set as a fallback.
Systems using DHCP servers
In a system with a DHCP server running, the network details will be configured automatically and the TEC-X is discoverable.
Systems using static IPs
Perform the following when adding a TEC-X to a system configured using static IPs:
- Change the IP of your Tesira server-class device to DHCP.
- Set your laptop to DHCP.
- Discover the TEC-X.
- Change the IP of the TEC-X to a static IP in the same range as the rest of the system.
- Change the IP of the Tesira server class device back to its static IP.
