I have had a world of pain trying to get this to work. The guys at Next Limit intervened twice via TeamViewer, and there are still problems. Only two out of my three machines can render together.
2 PC towers on WIN7 - brand new system and software install. connected to swtich via ethernet cables. On HOMEGROUP.
1MacBookPro running Windows 10 in Bootcamp - only using wifi (no ethernet port)
Fernando at Next Limit was able to get the one PC (called i7) to render with the MacbookPro, but not the other PC (called Node). Now as I write this I have even lost that connection..
All the computers see eachother in File Explorer and Homegroup, although one does not show up in the Network map which otherwise seems correctly generated..
AM I asking too much here? (to have on PC be in a different system version, and connecting via wifi instead of cable??)
Ugh.. too much time lost. I'll need to use a pro render farm to finish a job, costing me money..
Any ideas here?
First I got this:
But now (without having changes anything), I am getting this from the Manager!
