Due to problems that many people have with Art-Net broadcast mode used by many programs, I have wrote a small windows application to convert Art-Net multicast / broadcast to unicast.
This involves the use of a dedicated windows XP machine with 2 ethernet adapters, to act as a “proxy”.
Don’t waste time attempting to run with only one computer proxy and controller, they DON’T WORK.
One ethernet adapter receive Art-Net broadcast from controller, and the other ethernet adapter outputs in unicast to IP adress configured for each universe.
They need more work to be faster, but is usable for small number of universes.
You need a Windows XP machine (and probably others Windows, but not tested) with 2 ethernet adapters.
One adapter is configured with static IP 10.0.0.1 subnet mask 255.0.0.0, this interface is the INPUT.
The other adapter is configured with static IP 188.8.131.52 subnet mask 255.0.0.0, this interface is the OUTPUT.
You need a config file named “Art-Proxy.cfg” located in C:\
Config file example:
# Art-Proxy config file, one line subnet-universe, other line address to send. *** don’t delete this line ***
I hope you find it useful 😉
