You can also set up additional computers as Device Hosts. This option allows for greater flexibility when managing devices, reduces the bandwidth required to communicate from server to device, and reduces the chance of network interference.

You may need to adjust your firewall settings to specify public/private domain exceptions. Contact Vaisala customer support if you require assistance.
  1. Insert the viewLinc USB and run viewLincInstall.exe.

With all necessary viewLinc components installed, you can now use any machine on the network to log in to viewLinc to monitor conditions.

All users can access viewLinc from their own PC or mobile device, without having to install any software; however, their PC must be running a supported Internet browser, they require the IP address where viewLinc is installed, and must be set up as a user in viewLinc.
