Tutorial Connecting the grandMA 2Port Node with MXWendler via Art-Net
This tutorial applies to Windows only, and all MXWendler versions.
In this tutorial, we will connect a grandMA onPC software with a grandMA 2Port node. The onPC software will send Art-Net, which will be used to control an MXWendler mediaserver.
Configure the grandMA on PC System
1. Open the network adapter settings, assign interface a primary MA-Net2 IP address. ( here 192.168.4.254 )
2. Open 'Erweitert...' / 'Extended...'
3. Add a secondary interface IP address in the Art-Net range ( recommended 2.x.x.x ). The netmask of 255.0.0.0 is important.

4. Open MA Setup, create a new session on the MA-Net2 IP ( here 192.168.4.254 )
5. Open DMX nodes, add the node, assign it an MA-Net2 IP address ( here 192.168.4.250 ), set Ma-Net2 mode, set session-id that matches the previously created session.
6. Open Network Protocols, enable Art-Net, enable DMX output, set universe and subnet as shown.

7. Open network adapter settings, enter a valid Art-Net IP address. The subnet mask of 255.0.0.0 is important. (A)
