I had some difficulties getting ip pass through to work on DP3848v. Found that device was not recognized if MAC address was entered in upper case. After adding it in lower case device was recognized. Is this correct?
The MAC address generally isn't case sensitive with most things, however as I understand it, there are some programs such as Unix that are case sensitive and may require upper or lower case be used.
I posted this in the chance it might help someone else. MAC addresses aren't case sensitive. This is the first time I can recall a MAC address being accepted in an input box, then not working because it was in upper case. This is very unusual. A minimally competent programmer would reject upper case, or convert the input to lower case if it was required. My point is: I spent an hour trying to figure this out, then called Shaw support to verify that my second IP was working. If lower case is required, the How-To Shaw provides might want to mention it to save the customer and Shaw time.
