Need help setting up

I bought some used equipment and need to reset the IP Address. I tried the instructions found in the thread at https://www.kscapeowners.com/XF/threads/sellers-please-change-ip-address-after-sale.1520/ but I'm not getting it done. The instructions for WireShark aren't clear enough for me, the second instructions require a serial cable that I haven't owned in 15 years, and going to my-kaleidescape.local doesn't give me anything.

Any help would be appreciated.

Not every router supports my-kaleidescape.local. Did you have a look in your list of connected devices on your router to see if the equipment shows up there? Regarding Wireshark, which part isn’t clear? I might be able to clarify it for you.
 
I have a network cable straight from my server to my laptop per the instructions. When WireShark ran the only traffic it showed was from the ip of the laptop. This is where I got confused because I assumed there will be traffic from the server so I figured I did something wrong. I repeated the process with the same results.

Disable your wireless network card so it won’t generate any traffic (not sure if necessary as you select the network card to monitor when starting Wireshark).
When I had my laptop directly connected to the server there was no traffic from either side while the server was off.
Start the trace, then power on the server. Once the server is booted, stop the trace.
The majority of entries on my logging were from my laptop as well but by excluding them from the results (described in the link you posted, right click, etc) I ended up with a few lines that had come from the server which showed me the ip address.
This might be different if the server does not have a fixed ip address and is already set to DHCP. In that case you could connect it to your network and find it on your router in the connected devices list / DHCP lease list
 
I followed these instructions exactly. The server cycles through its boot sequence until the lights turn amber (because its not contacting the web) and then I stop WireShark. There are only two ips showing up, the ipv4 and ipv6 for the laptop. When I filter them out the only thing remaining is 0.0.0.0 which is a protocol that shouldn't even be there and can't be the server. This is starting to annoy me.

As far as it being set to Dhcp, I should be able to log into it by using http://my-kaleidescape but that's not working which is what led me to this point.

If you send me the serial number, I'll check the logs with support tomorrow and see what the last reported IP address was for the server, maybe it will still be the same.

Maybe you'll sort it out sooner, but I'll check in the morning and get back to you.

Here's what the logs say:

Last IP was "Static" and set to: 192.168.3.20 (You should be able to reach the server using that IP, unless the prior owner set a different address while the server was offline.) I've sent you a private message (Conversation) with additional info.

Good luck!

Jim
 
So that didn't work... I set up a new router so I could have multiple ports and when I did I found the Server on the network, it appears to be a dynamic address. Regardless, even knowing the address I still can't log onto the server. This is getting extremely frustrating.

That being the case, it sounds like at some point it was set back to DHCP while it was not reporting back to K (because the last IP shown in the logs is the one indicated above). Hopefully not, but this might end up being a board problem. Good luck with the next attempt!

Yeah, my cable gets here Wednesday. If I can't log into it directly via service cable then I'll figure out my next step. It wouldn't show up on the LAN unless it was booted up though.
