What's a DHCP server and what if I don't have one?

A DHCP server automatically assigns IP addresses to devices on the network, which is what the groov Box expects. If you have no DHCP, work with your IT Department to choose a static IPv4 address for the groov Box. To assign the fixed IP address, you'll need:

  • a Windows PC on the same network subnet as the groov Box
  • groov Find utility (on the CD that came with the groov Box)
  • groov Box User’s Guide Chapter 4--Follow steps to assign the static IP address to the Box.

Once you've assigned the static IP address, open your web browser and for the URL enter https:// plus the IP address you assigned to groov. For example: https://192.168.1.54
