5.5 - What network adapters will LJM use?

If your host machine has multiple network adapters, LJM will try to discover Ethernet/WiFi LabJack connections on all of them.

On Windows, LJM uses GetAdaptersInfo to find determine what network adapters are available. On Linux and Mac, LJM uses getifaddrs.

It is important that each network adapter is configured to have the correct subnet mask, since each broadcast address is determined from a bitwise-OR of the network IP with the inverse of the subnet mask.
