Answer/Steps

  1. Set computer to obtain an IP address automatically.
  2. Plug network cable from computer to an open port on the switch or router in the enclosure.      
  3. Open Internet Explorer and enter one of the following IP and port combinations depending on whether you are connecting to the primary or secondary display on the structure.      
    • Primary display - http://192.168.0.112
    • Secondary display - http://192.168.0.114:85 
  4. Read the various Java prompts that pop up and click through them appropriately.  A few key things to note:
    • You do not want to update Java to the latest version.
    • You do not want to block "potentially unsafe" components from being run. 
  5. Once the "Welcome to Daktronics remote display configuration" page is loaded perform the following.
    • If you are connecting to the primary VIP on a structure and no password is set (this is the default), click the Log In button, otherwise enter the VIP's password in the "Password" box prior to clicking Log In.
    • If you are connecting to the secondary VIP on a structure and no password is set (this is the default): 
      1. Click the "Communication Settings" button (Gear Icon) on the left side of the page. 
      2. In the "Settings" box that opens click the Configuration tab.
      3. Uncheck the "Use Default Configuration port" box.
      4. Enter 4600 in the "Configuration Port" box.
      5. Click OK.
      6. Click the Log In button, otherwise enter the VIP's password in the "Password" box prior to clicking Log In.
