... network settings
The solution is however very simple: one creates a mini-network for the initial connection with the Sunny WebBox out of just two devices (individual computer + Sunny WebBox), best of all with a network-independent notebook (fig. 1). This is because the IP address and the respective sub-net mask of the computer must be temporarily adjusted where necessary in order that it matches with the pre-configured Sunny WebBox IP address. Important: the IP addresses must have the same first three groups of numbers, but the fourth group must differ. The sub-net masks must be identical. With the notebook IP address 192.168.0.100 and the sub-net mask 255.255.255.0 for example, communication should work. Another important information: since two network devices should be connected directly to one another here, a crossover cable must be used for the connection - for example the blue cable enclosed. The Sunny WebBox can now be accessed using the notebook's internet browser. To do this, simply enter the pre-configured IP address in the address bar, and then the web interface should appear.
After logging in, all Sunny WebBox settings can be changed in order that they match the conditions of the local computer network (fig. 2). Next you must unplug the Sunny WebBox and disconnect the cable connection to the configuration computer. Before rebooting you just need to link the Sunny WebBox into the local network by using a standard patch cable (such as the supplied red cable) to connect it to the router or any network distribution unit. After rebooting, the Sunny WebBox can be accessed by every computer in the network via its new IP address. Further settings are therefore possible.
