Networking is one of the first areas you'll be using on your groov EPIC unit.
00:08
To access that information first make sure you're logged into your groov EPIC
00:14
as an administrator. From the groov manage home screen select System and
00:21
then Network. The first section you'll see is the Host Name. This is the factory
00:30
default, but, you can change it to a more meaningful name. Next is the information
00:37
about the network interfaces Ethernet 0 and Ethernet 1. Let's take a closer look
00:43
at Ethernet 0. The MAC address is a unique identifier for the groov EPIC
00:49
unit. The first six characters which are 3 octets identify this device as an Opto
00:56
22 device. And then the next 6 characters are uniquely set for this interface by
01:01
the factory. No other device will have this MAC address. The link status
01:08
indicates this interface is up or connected. If it says down then it's not
01:14
connected. The IPv4 Method shows it's going to get the IP address
01:21
automatically from a DHCP server. But, you can manually set it or disable it. The IP
01:29
address along with the subnet mask identifies a device so you can
01:33
communicate to it over the network. The broadcast IP is the IP address that's
01:39
set by your IT department and is used to send out a message to all devices that
01:44
are connected to the network. The network options below show how the groov EPIC is
01:50
set up to access the internet or other networks. If your DNS method and Gateway
01:56
method are set up for automatic your groov EPIC will pick up the values that
02:01
were set by your IT department for the network. You can also change them as you
02:07
can see here.
