After several hours, my frustration level is too high to think clearly. So would some kind soul please offer to me some suggestions? I have a MacPro (Yosemite) as VEP master and a PC (Windows 7) as slave.  This setup was working fine until I moved my gear to a new location. I've hooked it back up the exact same way, but the PC slave can not be seen. There is no router involved. The PC connects with a Cat 6 cable directly to one of the 2 ethernet ports on the Mac. (The other ethernet port goes to the cable modem.) So far I've tried setting up a new connection in the Windows 7 control panel. I've changed firewall settings back and forth on both computers. I've tried completely different Cat 6 cables. Both master and slave have the latest versions of VEP5 installed. The PC is visable and accessable as a shared computer from the Mac finder. And the PC can even connect to the internet if I enable internet sharing in the Mac network settings. But still, when I place an instance of VEP onto a Pro Tools track, with VEP running on the slave PC, it's as if the PC isn't there.


So please......can someone suggest something I haven't tried?

Perhaps when you moved you plugged the slave into the other ethernet port? Are they setup with fixed IPs?

Thank you....

Sorry. I forgot to mention that. I did swap the ethernet port connections just to see and that made no difference. No, I don't believe they are fixed IPs. I know the Mac is set to "using DHCP". There is a specific setting for "using DHCP with manual address".....but that isn't how it was set previously when working.

I figured it out after walking away from it for a few hours. Something confused my Mac into changing Ethernet 1 and 2 into Ethernet 2 and 3. Once I deleted and defaulted those connections in the network settings, the PC is online again.
