The connection from the driver ( SFM) to the machine and from the machine to the driver is done using 3 ports and the IP address of the 2 clients..

On the driver side-the port setting in the configuration is called 'LanPorts' and the machine IP address setting is called 'lineComputerIP'

On the machine side :
  1. Open the Yamaha machine interface.
  2. On the left menu bar click the Machine button.
  3. In the VmSpec window, from the left menu bar, choose Settings > Machine Information > Communication Setting.

    2. Verify that the ports numbers are correct.
  5. Click the Save button on the upper toolbar.
