  1. Log into the Daktronics Remote Display Configuration for the VIP.  See How to Access the Daktronics Remote Display Configuration utility, DD3339916 for details.
  2. Change the IP settings.
    • Note: Daktronics recommends leaving the display at DHCP if possible as it makes the system plug and play, but if a static is required, it is important to set a primary and secondary DNS on the controller also. When a public DNS service is set on the VIP, the network will need to allow UDP traffic on port 53 for the display.
    • Note: The process to change IP information will look one of two ways depending on firmware version in use.

New Interface 

  1. Click the Network tile on the dashboard.
