Important

The computer’s IP address must belong to the same subnet as the connected device IP address. For example, if your device has an IP address of 192.168.1.50 with a mask of 255.255.255.0, the computer’s IP address must be between 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.1.49 or between 192.168.1.51 and 192.168.1.254 with the same mask.
