Network Configuration Editor (NCE) does not ship installed on an Eos Family console, but can be installed at any time. NCE is a useful tool used to configure Net2 DMX nodes, Net2 Video nodes, Net3 Gateways running in Net2 mode, and Net3 1 port gateways.

    Note: The *.exe file must not be in any folders on the flash drive or the console will not recognize it.

  3. On the console, exit to the shell.
    • On Eos and Ion, press [Displays] and then Exit Eos (or Exit Ion).
    • On Element, press [Browser] and then Exit Element.
