    If you do not know the device IP address, click Browse to see a list of devices on the same subnet as the server machine.

  4. Click the Connect button. The Test Connection dialog box prompts you if the device fails to connect to the server machine and come online. Resolve all failures before continuing.
  5. Click Next.
  6. If the device passes all connection tests, the web application detects and displays the controller. Click Next.
  7. Enter the two types of names for the device.
    1. Device Name—The name that will appear throughout the web application.

      Tip  

      Assign your device an easily identifiable name, such as one that includes the device location.

    2. Hardware Name—The hostname of the device, which is in the format of NI-IC-ModelNumber-SerialNumber by default. If the device is online, the server automatically populates this name. Otherwise, you can find the two values printed on a label on the back of the device.
  8. Click Finish.
  9. When the web application prompts you to send the connection information to the device web server, click Yes.
Discover your FLIR or Optris cameras.
