Issue Details

I have NI devices on my network and want to configure them but do not want to use NI MAX.  What are my options?

Solution

If you are using Windows, you can use NI Network Browser. This tool will let you view NI network devices, see the IP addresses of the devices, and access the web configuration options on real-time targets.

Additional Information

The NI Network browser is a lightweight tool used for basic network IP discovery as well as for accessing basic configuration options, is an alternative to using NI MAX to perform these functions.  You will need to have Microsoft Silverlight installed as well as use Internet Explorer.
