- Cablecast 5.4.0+
As of Cablecast 5.4.0, it is now possible for the LeitchRouterCM to control routers over an IP or serial connection.
To use IP control:
- Log into Cablecast as admin
- Navigate to Main Menu : Location Settings : I/O : Control Module Sets
- Locate the Control Module Set that is configured for your routing switcher
- In the Port / IP / Local Path field, enter the IP address of your routing switcher
- Click Save
Prior to version 5.4.0, the LeitchRouterCM could only control routers over a serial connection.
As of version 5.4.0, the control module will inspect the Port / IP / Local Path setting. If it finds a single number, such as 2, it will treat it as a COM port number and connect over serial. If it finds an IP address, it will connect over an IP connection.
