An IP Address is printed on a label on the rear of the Encoder Box. This is typically in the format 192.168.XXX.1 – for example, 192.168.27.1 on your computer, set the network settings so that your computer is set to a fixed IP address the same as the Encoder Box IP Address, but with the number 3 (or other unused IP address) on the end instead of 1.

In the current example, you’d set your computer to the fixed IP address 192.168.27.3. Set your subnet mask settings to 255.255.255.0. Set your Router address to the IP address of the Encoder Box – in this case, 192.168.27.1.

Having done this, apply your computer’s new network settings. Depending on your operating system, it may require rebooting the computer to make the new network settings work.

You should now be able to enter the IP address of the Encoder Box into your browser address bar, and open the configuration page of the Encoder. You will need these default passwords. In this example you would enter
