When connecting for the first time, connect the LAN wire to the LAN adapter on the device, then connect the power on the device. The server will then boot from the on board card (from the MicroSD card for Raspberry Pi) which stores all the firmware and user data. The Server will now get an IP address automatically from the router (DHCP server). It is important that your server is connected to the same network as your computer, so you can use the Server Connection command on configuration software EVE Manager.

If there is no router available or you want to quickly program the server then you can connect directly to the server with your Pc.

Setting a manual IP address

If there is no DHCP server or router to assign an IP address to the Server, you must set one manually. By default, this should be in the range 192.168.1.x. > How to change network settings (disable DHCP and use static IP address)

Here you can assign your computer a static IP address. Click on the option ‘Use the following IP address:’ and then fill in an IP address and subnet. The IP address for your laptop should be one that the Server would not be using. By default with no router the Server IP address is so set your laptop IP address to a different address of your Server IP address, for example (mimicking a router).

Hit enter after entering the IP address and the subnet will automatically be filled in as This is fine, you can now click OK and then exit the Control Panel network adapter windows.
