There are two ways for serial to ethernet converter USR-TCP232-410S to get IP address: Static IP and DHCP.
Static IP: Default setting of module is Static IP and default IP is 192.168.0.7. When user configures module in Static IP mode, user need set IP, subnet mask and gateway and must pay attention to the relation among IP, subnet mask and gateway.
DHCP: Module in DHCP mode can dynamically get IP, Gateway, and DNS server address from Gateway Host. When user connects 410s directly to PC, module can’t be set in DHCP mode. Because common computer does not have the ability to assign IP addresses.
