I am trying to install my FLEX-6300 according to the quick start guide. however, the SmartSDR never detect the FLEX-6300 which is connected peer-to-peer with my host PC by the bundled CAT-5 ethernet cable. I also tried to connect them with a router, but the situation was same.

What is the problem ? What should I check or try next ?

I collect ethernet packet information by using WireShark. The FLEX-6300 seems not to respond/send any packets.

Advise me.

This issue has been resolved. The radio was not booting due to a misalignment of the SD memory card most likely due to the radio be jarred during international shipping.
