The robot’s IP address is 10.9.0.2 and my computer’s is 10.9.0.7. The computer is connected to the robot by an ethernet cable that is connected to a wireless router that is connecteed to the cRIO. I just updated my plugins for NetBeans and restarted NetBeans. I do not know what “imaging the cRIO” is or how to do it or what a “static ip address” is.
Not too sure myself. We’re lucky enough to have a mentor who knows what he’s doing with these kinds of things on the team. Take a look at the Wikipedia article if you have ethernet cables to spare, you have to re-wire them yourself.
You shouldn’t have to use a crossover cable to connect to the cRIO from a computer.
If you try and deploy the code without being connected to the robot, does it give you the same error? If so, it’s probably a problem with your installation. If a reinstall of both NetBeans and the plugins doesn’t solve the problem, try deploying from another computer to see if you get the same result.
Some computers, such as the Classmate, have autodetecting hardware, so you can use a straight-through cable on them (we use the Classmate to image, and Linux machines to program).
To connect straight to the cRIO, you either need a crossover or an autodetecting port. If in question, use a crossover. Hopefully you have one lying around (you can hold both ends in the exact same orientation side-by-side. Iff the order of the colors (some wires are striped) match, it’s a straight-through. If they are scrambled (some will still be right), then it’s a crossover. If none of them match, you’re doing it wrong )
Have you imaged the cRIO yet? (If no-one on your team knows, then you haven’t).
What do you mean when you say that NetBeans “freezes”?
