AMX DCS error

I'm getting a strange error when DCS starts up. It says

"No communication ports detected, if you are using a USB to serial adapter, try plugging it into a different usb port."

I see nowhere in the software to set up communications ports, and no serial program port on the CP-3017-NA.

Anyone out there know the secret handshake to get these talking? I know the Novara is getting an IP address, cause I can do a MAC address lookup on the network, and it has an IP through DHCP, and the PC running the DCS software has an IP on the same subnet.

    Which version do you have?

    Try using Netlinx Studios Bonjour to see if the Novara is getting an IP address...

    Tried it on my home network, and it came right up. Still getting the comm port error, but was able to see the device. Must be something on my campus network. Getting that tracked down will be FUN! (not...)

    Thanks for the reply.
