And if you don't plan on sending any multicast packets wirelessly, you don't even need that.  If you are using a single output controller such as a EtherDongle all you need is a crossover cable and if more than one controller, a $15 10/100 switch will easily handle the load and eliminate the need for any crossover cables.

What V2 plugin has unicast ? How do I find that animal ?
I only see multicast in my really old J1sys, only one ever tried.
The only interest of doing unicast is the expansion would fit into my current controller count nicely, otherwise expanding with multicast I would have to get several new controllers.

The really old J1Sys plugin has Unicast support and btw it's effectively the same plugin in Vixen3 and whilst a few years old remains the E131 plugin to use.
Sitting at work at the moment, and it's been a few years since I even thought about Unicast, but from memory you double clicked the dropdown list or something like that.... I can have a look at home later on as I still have Vixen2  installed and functional.

Ok checked the plugin.... on the destination field where it says multicast just right click your mouse and you get a pop up asking for the unicast address.

Whoa,,,thanks,,never knew that was there.
But it did take me over a year to find the "test channels" icon in Vix 2.1.   :o
It appears you can even mix and match between multi and uni ? Probably not a good idea for multiple reasons.
