Altera NEEK(3c25) Simple Socket problem IP

Honored Contributor II

I am using the Altera Simple Socket example, and got these in the console. 


It seems to not able to find et1IP 


I tried ping the IP address, but there is no response. 


Wondering what could be the problem.

That's because SSS is configured for DHCP, but you don't have a DHCP server on your network. 

You have to disable DHCP in project options and go with a fixed IP address. Anyway, after DHCP timeouts, it should go back to a fixed ip address, but you probably didn't define it. 

In the standard SSS project template there's a get_ip_addr() functions which serves for this purpose.
