I have IT and XTI amps. It was very easy connecting the IT series via the RJ45 network port, however, I had to connect directly from PC/Laptop to the amp. I used a USB 2.0 cable (like a usb PC to printer cable) and connected directly to the amp. I ran the system arch and within a minute or two it found the amp and I was off and running!
