Zero Configuration Setup

As an alternative to the conventional network configuration, VersaSync can also be setup using the zero-configuration networking technology (zeroconf).

When using zeroconf, a TCP/IP network will be created automatically, i.e. without the need for manual configuration: In a plug-and-play manner, once VersaSync's ETH connector is connected to a hub, you can directly access the VersaSync Web UI, using a standard web browser, without any configuration.

This is made possible because zeroconf utilizes these technologies:

  • The automatic allocation of network addresses for all connected devices
  • the automatic distribution and resolution of computer hostnames
  • the automatic detection of all available network services.

For more information on the zeroconf technology and the multicast Domain Name System, see

Using Zeroconf

Connect to the Web UI of your VersaSync unit in these 3 steps:

  1. Connect VersaSync to a router on your LAN via the ETH connector (see Input/Output Connector)
  2. Connect the power supply to the VersaSync unit.
  3. On a connected computer, open your web browser and in the URL field type the following:

  4. versasync-[xxxxxx].local/

    where [xxxxxx] are the last six digits of the MAC 0 address you copied from the serial number label on the unit.

    You should now be prompted for a username and password. The factory default credentials are:

    Username: spadmin

    Password: admin123

Note: If you do not have physical access to the unit, you can obtain the MAC address also by accessing VersaSync's CLI via the I/O connector USB port, using e.g., the ifconfig command.
