StageConsole WebServer is a command-line stage lighting control program. It requires an Enttec USB DMX Pro interface ( to communicate with DMX protocol to lighting devices.

It acts as a Web server, waiting for other computers to connect and issue commands. It controls 512 DMX channels by receiving commands that are typed in by an operator. These commands are entered in a form displayed on a web browser that connects to the PC running this program.

When this program starts, it displays IP addresses. These are the IP addresses of the DMX web server. The LAN IP address is used to connect from another locally networked computer. The WAN IP address is the address of the server on the worldwide Internet (if the computer running this software is connected to the Internet). Internet access, security and the webserver port are configurable in the Webserver Config dialog.

To connect to the program from another computer, open a web browser and enter the appropriate URL address: or http://localhost

(replacing the with the correct IP address)
You will receive a web page with a form that has a place to enter commands. This web page is user configurable. It is a file called DMXform.htm, in the same folder as the DMXweb program.

You can now enter commands.

Command Line Syntax

channel number(s)@level Enter

The Enter key executes the command. Backspace deletes characters.

The key syntax is designed so that you can use either a PC numeric keypad or a keyboard without having to use the shift key.

Keys that are be used to select channels:
channel 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
AND P or p or + (plus sign)
THRU T or t or / (slash or division symbol)
EXCEPT E or e or - (hyphen or minus)

Enter digits for channel numbers. To select multiple channels, you can use the AND, THRU and EXCEPT keys as well.

Keys that are be used to set levels:
level 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
AT A or a or @ or * (asterisk or multiply sign)
FULL F or f or [enter] without a level number
DMX D or d - interpret level number as 0-255 DMX instead of percentage

If you enter a single digit for the level, it will be interpreted as ten times that number. For example if you enter just a 4 for the level, the level will be set at 40%. To set levels below 10% you must enter a zero before the digit. For example to set a level of 5%, enter 05 as the level.

If you do not enter any channel numbers- just entering: @ level, the previously selected channels will be set.
