I have  FRDM-K64 board and am using KSDK 1.3.0 with KDS 3.2.0. I have built the httpserver demo and sent it to my board. When I have the board connected via ethernet directly to my computer, I am able to view the webpage by entering the IP address in my browser. However, when I connect the board to an gigabit switch which my computer is also wired to, this no longer works. Is it possible to configure the board so that it may be connected to over LAN?

Hi Barry!

Please, what is your network address?

Be careful that IP Address of K64 must be in range of your network address and subnet.

For example

Network Address: 192.168.1.0

Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0

the range of your network is 192.168.1.1 - 192.168.1.254 (255 is broadcast)

reserved address for your router is usually 192.168.1.1 so select any address from this range for K64 board.

By default is set 192.168.2.102 in http server demo, make sure that the address in demo code is changed regarding your device.

In case of any question, please let me know.

Best Regards,

Iva

That was the problem. I was using the default IP of 192.168.2.102. Once I switched it to an open IP in my network range I was able to access the page.
