Thunderbolt to ethernet adapter

Hi, everyone!
I'm new in Merging world and have question, which probably has been discussed here, but couldn't find anything.
So, I have Hapi and macbook pro with just thunderbolt output.
I was using Belkin thunderbolt dock which is working fine, but recently I have bought an original thunderbolt to gigabit ethernet adapter
http://www.apple.com/shop/product/MD463 ... et-adapter
and it just cannot communicate with Hapi. Is there any solution that such kind of issue can be solved, or shall I just throw away new adapter and keep using Belkin?
Thanks!

Hi Datikus,

I recently changed my system to a current 13 inch MBP with Win 8.1 and use the Apple adapter without issue. Seems rock solid so far and it has run continuously for 5 days doing 8 channel DXD so far. I'm using the latest Bootcamp version and driver - I did read about an issue with earlier versions.

Good luck,
Tom

Hi Datikus,

If you are using Windows do you have the Firewall off?

Hi!
Sorry, I forgot to mention that I'm using IOS 10.10.5
Firewall is off. Actually, everything is working perfectly with Belkin thunderbolt dock but not with the adapter I mentioned in my first post.

Hi Datikus,

So you are using Hapi with an OS10 application?

Have you downloaded the Core Audio files: http://merging.com/downloads/ravenna-standard-download?

If so does Hapi appear in you list of available devices System Preferences/Sounds?

Yes, I have downloaded all I need and already recording with Hapi.
The only problem I have is a thunderbolt adapter, which doesn't work. Recently I am using belkin thunderbolt dock, but it is quite big and I want to use something smaller.
I cannot understand why is belkin thunderbolt dock is working and simple adapter doesn't.
I checked two apple original adapters but both didn't work.

I have fixed my problem!

The problem was in OSX IP configuration. I gave an IP address to Ethernet connection manually. And I had to give same address to Thunderbolt Ethernet connection as well.
As soon as I did it, connector communicated with Hapi. Strange that without this configuration my Belkin worked well, but not another small adapter.

Thanks everyone for taking attention to my issue and sorry for taking your time.

Thanks! :)
I am new in Merging Ravenna and Hapi and still under impressions. For many years was working with USB and Firewire interfaces but nothing can be compared with the quality and reliability of Merging.
Already dreaming about Horus! :)

This sounds like a Bonjour issue.
Also, the system should be automatically be creating an IP address that starts with 169.XXX.XXX.XXX.
All the best,
