    Alerton BACtalk Programming with IP to mstp Router

    Does anybody know if you can set up an IP to mstp router to be able to upload/download BACtalk controllers through Envision for BACtalk? I'm running a copy on my laptop with a valid key and I can't discover the router in a device scan. Thanks for any replies.

    From my limited knowledge the router must be configured via hyper-terminal and a null modem cable.

    I assume this is not an Alerton router, if it is then kontrol is right.
    If it is not then you configure your router how you have to.
    Either case, programming controllers through a router with envision is not an issue.

    You are correct. This is a Contemporary Controls router. The problem is, I can't get it to scan into my device manager. I made sure I can get into the config through a browser, so I know the IP side is working. Am I missing a step?

    You have your BACNet IP devices on the same network? If you can hit it from a browser, then you probably have a setting wrong on your computer or the router.

    I have done your exact setup many times, so I can certainly tell you that it works.
    go to envision system properties and make sure all is setup correctly there, bacnet/ip vs bacent/eth, etc.
