Question about Sony SNT-V704 (SNTV704) Video Server
I am trying to connect the sntv704 video server to my laptop (asus a3e, 2 months old)via a crossover cable. I am using the ip setup program from the sony site to assign an ip address and it does not detect the device in the list. I have tried both version 1.2 and 1.4 of the ip setup program and uninstalled the first version before trying the next and still no luck. I have also disabled the firewall and antivirus software for nortons that i am using and have checked the windows firewall is not enabled. My laptop ip is set to 192.168.0.1, but i have also tried it with my laptop using auto assign just in case. can any one help me please?
First: Keep in mind that you do this at your own risk.
I had the same problem and after trying Chris Bell suggestion I managed to change the IP to 10.1.1.1. That was the first time I was getting an okay message from the system.
Anyway, I still did not see the homepage, although, with the IP Setup tool I had a connection. I opened up the SNT-V704 and noticed a small button on the PCB, after pressing it 5 short times I finalley managed to see the homescreen and use it. Try it and if you have an unused SNT-V704, try my suggestions.

Ok well all I can suggest is this... first try a NON-crossover cable.. 2nd.. try the address of 10.1.1.1 The server should be setup according to the manual.. and should be detected upon connection, Also is the server to be set up to ASSIGN an address via it's DCHP or to RECIEVE one from ya lappy? I mean basically it is just a network device that sends stuff when asked, not unlike a networked Hard Drive etc. Usually ya set up the lappy for DHCP and the Video Server gets it's address from the lappy, & when "Polled" sends data to whomever "Polled" it.
