I have a custom made ADC device that is spitting out data by addressed UDP packets.
I have that device plugged into a 4 port switch.
I have one windows embedded standard 7 machine which is the normal recipient of that data. To be able to receive the data (Using LabVIEW) the windows network adapter IPv4 settings must have a static IP address that corresponds to the UDP packet destination.
I would like to add a second windows machine (This one is just regular Win 7 Pro) to simultaneously catch the data, however with all devices connected to the switch, the Win 7 Pro machine recognizes an IP address conflict and will not take the setting for the required static IP address. (The network adaptor settings show that the correct value has been entered but ipconfig shows that it is not actually set.)
Neither windows machine needs to transmit network data, they only need to be able to receive the UDP data from the ADC device.
Is there any way to disable this IP address conflict detection 'feature' of windows networking?
