Hi Fabio

you can test the procedure that I have describe in one old post

If you have the SD card to test it you can verify if it's functioning also for the IP setting

IMHO the IP adress is not a part of sdcard.ini file contents

Hope this help you

Hi Flavio I need to use only SD card to update the program and to configure the ethernet settings. I tried this month ago and was ok but now I don't remember how to do it exactly. I remember only it need to set Confdata=1....

Hi Fabio
as far as I remember, the IP address is written in the program file that is then read by the CPU when booting from SD.
I do not think this address can be written to any parameter in the file sdcard.ini
