You have your host (PC) address set to 10.10.10.10.
It must be a different number say 10.10.10.100

The same way you previously set the host address to 10.10.10.10

Have you previously edited the /etc/network/interfaces file? If you have, then choose a different 10.10.10.xx address in there.

But if you changed it via a GUI tool, you should make the change there instead.

Have you found this page in the docs?

You need to change your network properties.

Use static IP
IP 10.10.10.1
Network 255.0.0.0
Gateway 10.10.10.1

and use a static DNS

i never intentionally changed the IP address.i have absolutely 0 idea how to change it, there is not GUI to change the computers IP address from i can see.

How do i change it?

Also not to get to far ahead of myself but i cannot even find a reliable source for setting up the Mesa THCAD control in Linux CNC... i've been trying to get my electronics working for about 3 months now. No luck yet.

I've already googled it a million times, how do i change it ?

Is there a GUI in LinuxCNC to do this?

or can you give me a helpful link. my only experience is Arduino code i have 0 clue how linux works and have no experience with command lines. I understand how to type things in.

I have not modified that file at all manually. I have found it in my computer and attached a screenshot. it doesn't reference any ip addresses at all.


All i did with LinuxCNC was download it and try to plug in my 7i96(set the jumpers to 10.10.10.10 physically on the board) and that was it. i have never intentionally touched or changed any settings that had to do with the ip address. i have absolutely 0 clue how to change it, i've tried googling it and no other distribution of linux has the same GUI so i cant figure out how to do anything.

You can either modify the interfaces file (as described in the hm2_eth manual page)
of you can use the GUI configurator.

For simplicity, I would use the latest LinuxCNC versiion ISO (2.8.2)
as this should have the netmanager GUI for network setup which avoids
issues the previous releases had with the wicd GUI. This should also
have a pncconf version that knows how to setup the THCAD
