Naomi netdimm crossover connectivity

Post by Sabih » June 25th, 2017, 9:23 am

Hi there,

I have a Naomi/netdimm setup that I can't seem to load any games through.
All prerequisite steps have been taken (zero key, firmware etc.).

I've got it hooked up to my PC via cross-over cable and I'm using python + command prompt to try to push games across.
I can successfully bring up the 'Checking Network' screen, and ping tests are successful. However, when I try to push a game through, the Command Prompt hangs on "Trying to connect to Netdimm..." and doesn't go anywhere. I've set the netdimm IP address to 192.168.1.1 and my PC to 168.192.1.2.

Pics below. Anything I'm missing here?

your pc ip is different to the netdimm one,if you dont make a mistake while writting it

BTW,you need to set as follow

on the netdimm (must be on ethernet mode)
ip 192.168.1.1
mask 255.255.255.0
gateway (your pc ip adress) 192.168.1.2

on your pc,set as follow
ip 192.168.1.2
mask 255.255.255.0
gateway 192.168.1.2
dns 192.168.1.2

and it should works,if you have modified your python script (line triforce_ip = "192.168.1.1" <-your naomi ip adress)
if not,please post pictures of your naomi ethernet setting and your pc's one too

Thanks for your help, Tyler.

I've followed your tips regarding the IP addresses, but this didn't change anything. Here are the pics:

With regards to the script modification, I'm not sure how you're suggesting I modify this exactly? Here's what I'm inputting:

These are the files saved in the source folder:

The modification is in the upload.py file you have.
Personnally,I better use 192.168.1.1 for dns gateway
Others ,ok dimm,are on 192.168.1.2 and the rest.

Maybe,if you can ping your dimmboard,it's simply your script or surely pythonis version which isn't the right one.have you ever tried using netbooty?
