¹) Commands for the same address are rejected in case the timer did not yet elapsed.
Factory default is 192.168.0.111 which is also used if left empty.
Default is 21105 if left to zero.
This option is needed for getting (speed, direction and function) info events from the Command Station of manually1) controlled locos to synchronize Rocrail clients.
Without this option the subscription on loco info is done individually for each loco after a speed or function command is send from Rocrail.
This option must be set if RailCom detectors are connected to the Xpressnet bus of the z21.
Switches, outputs and signals do only use the address field.

Module 1 → Address range 1-8
Module 2 → Address range 9-16
In the default setting of the z21 / Z21 there is an address offset of +4 between Multimaus and Rocrail. This means that in Rocrail the addresses 1-4 can not be used. If e.g. address 1 of the multimouse is to be used in Rocrail address 5. But there is an elegant way to eliminate this shift. To do this, connect the z21 to the computer via the z21-maintenance-tool, activate the option "DCC-switch address shift +4" resp. "DCC tournout-addressing according to RCN-213" on the "Settings" tab and then confirm with "Write". Then the addresses from 1 can also be used in Rocrail. Addressing is done exclusively according to FADA (flat addressing).
Z21 firmware: 1.24+
See for setup: http://www.z21.eu/content/download/1134/12993/file/Z21_GBM16XN.pdf
The Z21 cannot access the LAN when connected to an 'old' Ethernet HUB.
The easiest way to get connected is to add a small Desktop Ethernet Switch between the 'old' HUB and the Z21. (Small Switches are available for less then €10.)
The z21start has a restricted network interface which does not accept commands from Rocrail or other software.
To use the z21start with Rocrail an Unlock-Code (10818) or an complete z21 WLAN Package (10814) must be installed.
