I have recently bought an BMW ICOM Next
diagnostic emulator and i cannot connect to cars via E-sys.
I have itool radar installed. I reserved the icom, and when i try to connect the ip adress is automatically inserted under icom/ ethernet, then i hit connect and it says connection failed.
I the port 50160 for ICOM is open, and the icom is working perfectly with ista+ and ista /p.
I’m running ista/d 4.03. and ista /p 3.60.2. It didn’t ask me if i wanted to update icom.
The ip address is showing up as below; that’s ok.
Problem solved! The ip address that windows gave to icom from dhcp was different than the icom ip from ista+. I changed the address to the one from ista and it works like a charm.
Here is what i did… to change icom ip…
need a tool like EasyConnect or iToolRadar, both i used
then the connection from the ICOM (normally on 184.108.40.206), mark it and click on reserve
(in EasyConnect is different but as easy as itoolradar).
, choose the target (f.e. F010) and click on “connection ICOM/Ethernet”. Type the IP address (here 169.254.92.38), the port is 50160, so the result should be tcp://169.254.92.38:50160.
Connect and have fun.
Need patience to use a bmw icom diag head with E-sys, it’s a 50/50 chance that it will work or not, or, something may not work.
