Network setup

Network setup

Turn the system on and connect a LAN cable in the back of the system in the port named enp3s0, this is an imporatant step for the rest of the setup to work.

Press the Automatic Setup (DHCP) button to let TELSCOPE automatically setup IP settings. If you want to use a static IP provided by another source press the Manual Setup (Static IP) button to access the next step where you will enter your static IP address.


Network setup check

After either Automatic setup or Manual setup are done, a network setup check page will be shown. This check will verify that the shoreside system can be reached. Press the Check Shoreside Connection button to continue.

If shoreside connection fails, double check that you have the LAN cable in the correct LAN port and check if your static IP is entered correctly.
If the shoreside connection is complete, an overview page will be shown.


Assign server to vessel

In this step an IMO number and call sign is entered. This will permanently link the server to the given vessel, so make sure to enter the correct value.



Network setup is now complete, but you can always go back and make changes by using the side menu on the left side of the page. In the overview page information about TELSCOPE version, latest handsake, IP adress and network configuration is shown. A link is shown containing either IMO-number or call sign. This is the link that should be used.
