select Local IP Address to listen to



  • Hi @all,

    does anyone know about a possibility to change the listening local IP address in the preferences, if you have two network devices with different IPs on a Mac?

    Issue: Two networks configured on OSX, with different subnets and local IPs. Devices in the first Network sending OSC commands to one local network device of the Mac with a specific IP. But Isadora seemingly listening on the other device of the second network with the other IP.

    In the Network devices List of OSX the wanted device is first in the list!

    Thanks for any suggestions!

    Have you given them different Computer IDs and ID Port Numbers?

    Best wishes,

    thank you for your suggestion, but the issue is more on the lower part of this preference page...

    This address is chosen automatically by Isadora. If it chooses the right one (eg. deactivate any other before starting Isadora), everything works. But if it chooses the wrong one, it doesn't get network commands from this needed network.

    At the moment I do have even to disable and reenable the wanted device, otherwise Isadora switches to localhost 127.0.0.1 after restart, if it first chose the other network.

     Is there a reason that you have to work with two networks? It seems like the issue could be solved by consolidating to a single network, no?

    It actually is not a recent issue. But there are several situations I already had where different networks where necessary. Without real issues yet seemingly by luck. I ran into issues now, reworking /cleaning a just finished show, while having wifi on.

    Most of the situations adressing a separation of audio / video / light networks. But as well using wifi and cable the same time. The later should obviously be avoided at shows, but can be helpful for setup. That's why most of media software that handles ip network, offer selection of communication devices/ip's.

    Wow, how tired was I that I could have forgotten about this? (Facepalm).
