Red Settings[edit]

1. Once you plug the Lemo-to-Ethernet cable into the Red camera navigate to the "Ethernet" tab (Settings>Setup>Communication>Ethernet)

NOTE: If the IP comes up in the 169 range or with a "Netmask" that is something is wrong and the Colr box may not be set to "Camera Link"

Foolcontrol Connectivity[edit]

If all went well when you open up Foolcontrol the Red cameras should just pop up once the software has scanned the network
From there just click on the camera you want to work on (you can check the boxes on the cameras to get the IP to id the cameras easier.
