I want to connect to a USRP X310 device via ethernet. The apple USB ethernet adapter is plugged in and is shown by
en3: flags=8863<UP,BROADCAST,SMART,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 options=4<VLAN_MTU> ether 00:f7:XX:XX:XX:XX nd6 options=201<PERFORMNUD,DAD> media: autoselect status: inactive
However in Network Settings it is shown with a red dot and the following text.
Status: Cable Unplugged
Either the cable for Apple USB Ethernet Adapter is not plugged in or the device at the other end is not responding.
I want to set a static IP as it is stated here. I set the following parameters:
- Configure IPv4: Manually
- IP Address: 192.168.10.1
- Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
When I check ifconfig it does not show any changes to before. A ping to 192.168.10.2 returns "Request timeout". So I guess that the IP address is not assigned.
When I connect the mac to the PC which has a static IP of 192.168.10.1 the mac first sets a self-assgined IP of 169.254.145.146. When I set the IP of the mac ethernet adapter to 192.168.10.1 and the two machines are connected, I can ping both machines from the other machine (when firewall is turned off on mac).
Am I missing something? What can I do to assign a static IP to connect to the device? When I connect the device to my PC running Arch, I can set the static IP and ping the device! So I guess that it has something to do with macos or the adapter.
I am running Mojave on a late 2013 MacBook Air and am using a A1277 USB ethernet adapter from apple. The ethernet cable is connected to the port "0" on the USRP X310 device, which is turned on.
