Connect via persistent static IP address

Your Standalone VGA Grid has a default persistent static IP address, also known as the recovery IP address. If ever you need to set it up on a network that does not support DHCP, or you need to recover from a previous static IP address setting, you can use this method to connect directly to the system for configuration.

To perform this procedure you will need a workstation computer for which you are able to modify network settings.

The Standalone VGA Grid is pre-configured with the following static address defaults:

  • IP Address:

  • Netmask:

  • Username:


  • Password:

your admin password (by default set to no password)

To access the Standalone VGA Grid's Admin panel via the persistent static IP address:

  1. Establish an Ethernet connection between the Standalone VGA Grid and the workstation by one of the following methods:
    1. Connect the system to a local Ethernet network shared with the workstation.
    2. Connect the system directly to the workstation’s Ethernet port using either a regular or a crossover Ethernet cable.
  2. Record the network settings of the workstation being used to connect to the Standalone VGA Grid so that they can be restored later.
  3. Temporarily change the network configuration on the workstation to the following:
    1. Use Static IP assignment
    2. IP address:
    3. Subnet mask:
  1. Start a web browser on the workstation and browse to:
  2. Log in as the administrator user with the user name admin and the admin password (by default there is no password); the Admin panel opens.
  3. Click the Networking link in the Configuration menu.
  4. Select the radio button to use a static address and configure the system with a static IP address and network settings relevant to the network being used. For specific details about the settings presented, see Configure network settings.
  5. Restore the previously saved network configurations on the workstation.
