About this task

You use the Launcher application to access an NAE . If the Launcher application is already installed on your computer, skip to Step 5 below.
Note: The Single Site Connection install option is available to network engines and the ADS/ADX at Release 9.0 or earlier. For network engines and the ADS/ADX at Release 10.0 or later, only the Full Launcher Installer option is available.
If the Launcher application is not installed, follow these steps:

Procedure

  1. Open a supported web browser on the computer.
  2. Enter this URL in the address field: http://<NAE -computer-name>/metasys. The Launcher Download dialog box appears, which varies slightly depending on the network engine's release.

  3. Click Full Launcher Installer to reach the public Launcher download website. (Do not click Single Site Connection, it is no longer active.)
  4. Download the Launcher installation file to a location on your computer. When complete, run the Launcher installation. For details, refer to the Launcher Installation Instructions (LIT-12011783) if needed.

  6. Click Add.
  7. Enter the host name (or IP address) of the NAE including the domain name if required, and then click Discover. The Launcher searches for the device on the building network. When the device is found, the Add New window refreshes to indicate the found device.

  8. Make sure the Add box next to SMP is selected. You can enter a descriptive name for the NAE in the Description field to make the NAE easier to find in the profile list, or you can keep the default IP address. Click Save. The NAE is added to the profile list on the SMP tab.
  9. Select the NAE from the SMP profile list and click Launch. If the device you are adding has not yet been downloaded and installed on your computer, a Downloading window appears, followed by an Installing window. The windows close when the download and installation steps are complete.
  10. Enter the initial Username and Password values for the NAE and click Login. See Login user names and passwords.
  11. If necessary, set the time, time zone, and date.
