Network Address Fallback Order

Last Modified: November 16, 2017

When NI-DAQmx attempts to contact a Network DAQ device, it uses addresses stored previously to connect to the device on the network.

NI-DAQmx follows this sequence to contact Network DAQ devices:
  1. NI-DAQmx uses the IP address of the last network interface used by NI-DAQmx.
  2. If the first IP address fails and the device has both wired and wireless network connections, NI-DAQmx attempts to use the last known IP address of the other network interface (wired or wireless).
  3. If both known IP addresses fail, NI-DAQmx uses an address returned from a name look up of the device's hostname.
