Reading the new User Guide for the 6600M I see we can set a static IP address for the radio but it doesn't appear we can do the same for the Front Panel IP address. Am I missing something? This doesn't seem logical to me. BTW... Thanks for releasing the manual. It is exceptionally well written and an easy read. Who would think you would say that about a manual?

This is not a defect and the manual is correct.  The control surface (front panel) of the M models communicates with the radio and only the radio on an isolated internal IP subnet to the radio and cannot be changed by the user.  The only IP address that can be changed by the user is the external IP address that the radio uses to communicate with external clients, like SmartSDR for Windows.
