PINK and Win7

Post by xanatos » Sat Mar 19, 2011 1:04 pm

From other forum posts I am thinking that I need new firmware to get the PINK SB70 modules to work with Win7. Is this correct?

Currently, when I attempt to run Netburner IP Setup V2.0 with the PINK Server Module, it does not see the module. From what I've read it *sounds* (if I am interpreting what I am reading correctly) like the new PINKs try to communicate using an address of 0.0.0.1 which Win7 doesn't like. I've tried other settings on the Win7 machine as well - manually setting IP addresses (no DHCP), different cables (crossover AND regular...)

How do I go about updating the firmware on the PINK modules I have (I have 5 that I had ordered through Parallax). Secondary question: Are these modules available through Netburner here in a Windows 7 ready configuration? Assuming that the earlier versions are not easily upgradable...???

Thanks very much for any assistance.

The PINK units are upgradable through the network interface, and you are correct about the windows 7 issue - windows 7 rejects an ip address of 0.0.0.1.

You can get the latest PINK firmware from the update page:
