Data loggers must be accepted or added to the system before their data can be collected and used.

  1. Open the viewLinc Enterprise Server user interface by double-clicking the desktop icon , or by entering the server's IP address and port in a web browser's address field.
  2. Log in to viewLinc Enterprise Server as the default administrator user (username, admin, password, viewL!ncAdm1n).
    It is recommended that you change the default administrator password immediately after logging in to ensure site security. Remember to record the new password in a safe location.
  3. If this is the first time logging in as the admin user, a brief setup tour starts automatically. Complete the tour to familiarize yourself with system setup.
  4. When viewLinc detects new devices, New Devices text appears at the top of the screen. Click it to open the New Devices window.
  5. Compare the list of new devices to your device installation plan to verify that all your devices have been found. In the Accept column, select each device you want to add.
  6. Select Save to register the selected devices with your viewLinc Enterprise Server.
  7. Open the Sites Manager window and select the Hosts and Devices tab. On the Hosts and Devices tree, verify that all of your devices are now listed.
    • If none of your devices are listed, check that network traffic to ports used by viewLinc (for example, 12600, 771, and 6767) is not blocked by a firewall.
    • If some devices are missing, make sure they are configured, powered on, and connected to the network. Refer to the device-specific documentation for troubleshooting assistance.
    • If the automatic discovery is not finding all of the devices, refer to the viewLinc User Guide for instructions on how to add or discover devices manually.
