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 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multicast_DNS.

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.
