Issue Details

I have the NI 9144 EtherCAT chassis and it is connected to the NI PXI(e) RT embedded controller which has got two Ethernet ports. Port1 of the NI PXI(e) RT embedded controller is connected to the Host PC and Port2 is connected to the NI 9144 EtherCAT chassis. The NI PXI(e) RT embedded controller is recognized by the NI MAX. However, NI 9144 EtherCAT chassis is not recognized by the NI MAX. How to resolve this issue?
