IE PRO 200: Tutorial - Connecting your PC to the Tetra IoT Agent

To connect your PC to the Tetra IoT Agent, you will need to access Tetra IoT Agent's local configuration page.

Each Tetra IoT Agent has a configuration page that you can use to change Tetra IoT Agent settings such as Ethernet or Wi-Fi, or to restore factory settings. This tutorial describes how to access this configuration page and walk you through the different options.

🚧

Warning

Please consult with a TetraScience Customer Success member to change settings. Please refrain from changing other settings without understanding the consequences; otherwise the Tetra IoT Agent may operate in an unexpected way.

How to Access the Local Configuration Page

You can access the local configuration page using one of these methods:

  • If the Tetra IoT Agent's IP address is available, open your browser and enter the Tetra IoT Agent's IP address in your browser's search bar to visit the configuration page (please verify that your computer is in the same network as the Tetra IoT Agent).
  • If the Tetra IoT Agent's IP address is not available, then you must establish a local connection between your computer and the Tetra IoT Agent. Please follow the next section to configure your computer.

  2. Connect your computer with the Tetra IoT Agent's LAN port using an Ethernet cable.
