Hi,
I have an existing Comfort Pro alarm system installed in 2006 which has been working fine.
I have started to upgrade by adding a UCM06 (5.212) and ETH01 daughter boards Tibbo Net Module (Plug-in Ethernet Board for UCM05 C020820) to get access and change the programming of zones etc, there was no other comms access RS232 etc which is why I started here.

UCM settings;
UCM cable plugged into JP2 on UCM06.
It plugs into “RS485” 4 pin header (J6) connector on the PCB
SW8-f shorted only, all others removed,
SW2 - A,B,C shorted, all others removed – ID1 (no other UCM), if I try UCM IDs 2 to 8, communications failure will be reported as expected.

UCM Ethernet LED Indicators;
D10/Green continuous, D9/Red flashing very fast, RDY/green on continuous, D102 on continuous, D104/red is off, D103/green flashing twice, then off, twice then off etc con, all other LEDS off.
Connection is Closed? seems to be the error, How can I correct this?
PP2 short removed, firmware cables not installed.

Connecting to laptop with RJ45/straight cable. Will add to home network once working.

I can only ping UCM06/Eth01 169.254.143.109, but cannot browse it in DS Manager 3.12, Wizcomfort or Configurator ( Comfigurator > Modules > UCM’s is set to 1 by default) to change the config/IP address to match the home network.
Can you help advise where I should start to troubleshhot this?
I have downloaded UCM manuals etc, but not found a way through this yet.
Dave

System Info if needed;
Comfort 1 Pro Controller U1 Firmware (04.209)
ADM01 - Aux Distribution module PC01-039A
LEM03-M2 - 16 Local Expansion Module inputs/outputs PC01 - 001E Rev E
Rang Cytec and they advised ordering a UCM Eth01 above.

you should connect the PC LAN port  to the ethernet port of the UCM/Ethernet using a cross cable. A straight cable should be used when connecting the UCM/Etherner to a router or switch.

When you connect the UCM/Ethernet direct to the PC,m the PC IP address must be configured as a fixed IP address in the same network as the UCM/Ethernet, because the default configuration on the PC is "assign IP address automatically" wnen connected to a network

Hi, correct on the cable, wrote it incorrectly, I could ping when crossed cable was used for direct connection.

I change my laptop to match the address range as you suggested and it worked, could enter and change IP address, it is now working on home network as well.

Many Thanks!
