Currently receiving support for my network rendering related issue with Beppe. However, due to the significant difference in our time zones, I've been trying to troubleshoot my issues wherever I can. I've found great support via the Octane Render Facebook group.
Here's a link to the comment thread for reference: https://www.facebook.com/groups/OctaneR ... up_comment
Basically, the short version is this: had network rendering setup at my old apartment and it worked fine. Moved last week and network rendering has not been working as I've come to expect. In tracking down the issue, it seemed that my particular configuration wasn't ideal, and that that's what's been causing the issue. Per the instructions and guidance of a kind soul named Daniel Ramos (via Facebook group), he's led me on a path that seems like it will very likely work involving using an Ethernet Switch. With the switch, both computers are receiving an internet signal.
It's his last bit of instruction that I'm unable to figure out on my own.
How do I set the Master as the default gateway for the Slave?
When I open the network rendering menu via the Liveviewer, the slave never appears as available. I'm not entirely sure what I'm doing wrong or missing but any insights someone could lend me regarding this would be extremely appreciated.
