Default Northstar 6100i radar question

Working on a friend's new to him Albermarle and it has all Northstar Electronics on it.

There are 2 6000i heads (one 6100i and one 6000i) the 6000i is the master and the 6100i is the slave. Both are now on the latest firmware, but I can not get the radar to be recognized by the slave unit, to which is is connected.

Looking at the N2 network information, all that's on the net is the 2 displays. I have confirmed that the radar unit has power, but it doesn't appear on the net.

I have read through all the documentation and the cabling appears to be the correct part #'s and installed correctly.

There does seem to be a firmware update for the 4KW radar unit on the northstar website, but without being able to see it connect to it, I'm not sure what the next step is.

Does anyone here have any "nuggets of knowledge" that might get me pointed in the right direction?

Let me know if you have any tips.

Thanks!

I think radar HAS to be run into the master.

Well that's an easy one to try. Thanks! I'll give that a go.
