The OBS+ is set up with its own LAN (Local Area Network), consisting of the two Mac Minis and the camera. The Mac Mini IP addresses are set up to be in the same IP “neighborhood” as the camera, so they will all talk to each other, like good neighbors should. 🙂

 

Default Settings

 

The default IP address for the camera is 192.168.100.99

 

The OBS+ Recording Mac Mini should be set up as follows:
Configure IPv4: Manually
IP Address: 192.168.100.100
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Router: 192.168.100.1

 

The Presentation Mac Mini should be set up as follows:
Configure IPv4: Manually
IP Address: 192.168.100.101
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Router: 192.168.100.1

 

With the Wi-Fi off, this allows default behavior; i.e. the OBS+ Recording Mac Mini will be able to receive the screen share from the Presentation Mac Mini. And you will be able to recall your two camera zoom presets from the control panel.

 

Adding Wi-Fi

 

In the Network settings left-hand column, you will see both your ethernet and Wi-Fi connections. Make your Wi-Fi active, then go to the bottom and click the gear icon and select “Set Service Order”. In the following window, you will be able to drag the Wi-Fi connection to the very top. Hit “OK”. In the left hand column of the Network settings, your Wi-Fi connection should now be listed above the ethernet connection. This should allow your Wi-Fi to work without interfering with the ethernet LAN.
