Setup

The computer running Artisan must be on the same IP network as the Giesen roaster. Configure your computer to use a static IP address in the range of the roaster (192.168.2.x, 192.168.3.x or 172.30.30.x) but with x different from that of the roaster (see the tables below). Choose 255.255.255.0 as subnet mask.

This can be done on Windows using the Network Sharing Center by adding a TCP/IPv4 Local Area Connection with those properties. On macOS you set your ethernet port in the Network Control panel to “IPv4: Manually” and fill in the IP and subnet mask accordingly.

Watch out! Artisan doesn’t monitor unsafe temperatures, so you should never leave the roaster alone.
