I am running a RM16AI. I want to control it via ethernet cable with a laptop running windows 10. Windows 10 sees the mixer. Just calls it an unknown network with no internet connection. I can not get it to talk to the mixer. When opening up UC Surface no mixers show up. 

Current set up: 

  • HP laptop running Windows 10
  • RM16AI 
  • Ethernet cable connect direct to the back of mixer and usb adaptor to the laptop. 
Any suggestions on how to get it working? I checked to see if the computer was allowing UC Surface to use public and private networks. It has permission for both. It just won't connect on the private network.

Best answer
Are you using a router between your RM mixer and the computer? If not, you'll need to do this. You can't direct connect the RM mixer to a computer's ethernet port for control (unless you've installed a Dante option card on your RM mixer.)

You can find more information on a Wired Ethernet Control Setup on page 13 of the RM-Series Manual: https://pae-web.presonusmusic.com/downloads/products/pdf/StudioLiveRM-SeriesOwnersManual_EN_06082015.pdf
