Issue Details

I would like to install the software in my cRIO but I wasn't able to see the feeds although the cRIO has been connected to my Systemlink host. 

 

Solution

If you notice that the IP Address is starting with 169.254.X.X, this shows that the cRIO is not connected to the network. Instead, it is connected to the host directly by using an ethernet cable or USB.
To resolve the issue, connect the cRIO or any remote target to the network or switches. You will notice that the IP address will change to 10.161.X.X or any IP that will be assigned by DHCP server. Then you can check that the software feeds will populate to be installed in the cRIO.
