Looking to always improve my network performance.  I just noticed that my Master (W7 64 bits) is set up for 'Public' network (I see all Farm units ok and performance is ok, but....).   Should that be Home/Private?   If so - how to set this up on W7 - anyone have an opinion on this?

Many thanks in advance.

Rob

what would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?

Any W7 64 bits folks have an opinion on this?   Many thanks.

 Hi Rob,

are you ask for a connection between Mac and W7 or two windows machines? I'm working with 'Public' connection between iMac and W7 using ipMIDI too, simply it was nothing to do, it works automaticly (for MIR on W7). No problems at all. According the Manual of MIR you can get some issues with MIDI jitter on higher buffer settings, I did'nt experience this. 

But last week I have read in this forum how to set a Mac/Window connection with fixed ip-adresses. I was looking for you, but unfortunataly have forgotten the title of the thread and did'nt it find anymore. Maybe someone else can remember and help with a link - for me too, cause I'm unsure too, if it wouldn't better to use fixed ip-adresses.

So, maybe that's not really a helpful answer, but at least you are not alone!

Nope - all Windows machines (Master = W7 64 bits - three farm units XP64 - all giga NIC's).   Thanks.

AFAIK, the Home/Work/Public networks are just "presets" that default certain settings, such as network discovery and stuff. I don't think it really matters which setting you use in terms of network performance.

After having tried it I agree - no real performance difference using one or the other.

we can leave aside the homegroup (simple filesharing through a common password) and the domain (requires a domain controller) in most cases, so private and public ist left.

as posted above both network types just enable a different set of firewall rules - you can see the details in *Windows firewall with advanced settings*.

more important than the network type is to not ignore or cancel the dialog which pops up after the first start of VE PRO asking for firewall exeptions beeing added.

 

if your network is set to public it is highly probable you're on a machine which has more than one NIC (Network Interface Card), also called a multi-homed computer, so any performance problems might be the result of wrong or conflicting entries for gateway in your network settings.

 

note. using multiple networks (eg. one for internet and one for audio) requires correct cabeling and setting of IP adresses and gateways. do not forget that WiFi/WLAN is also a network ... networks without gateway are always public by definition, but you should never set additional gateways without understanding network communication.

 

one of the system requirements for VE PRO is a *working gigabit network* and since network conigurations are legion you should at first get a clear picture how your devices (including modems, routers, switches and printers) are connected and should communicate.

 

if you are asking vsl support for troubleshooting your specific network problems it is absolutely neccessary to provide a precise description (even better a drawing of devices, cabeling and IP adresses) to get a clear picture where a problem could be even located ... *does not work* or *has bad performance* is definitely not enough.

and remember: a CRAY is the only computer that runs an endless loop in just four hours ...
