Determination of IP-address

To determine the IP-address of the device insert a USB-flash into the device as shown in the diagram above. The device will automatically create a "dumplog_date_time.txt" file with the current settings (including IP-address) in the root directory of the USB-flash. After the LED on the USB-flash stops blinking, remove the drive from the device.

Now connect the USB-flash to your PC. Then open the "dumplog_date_time.txt" file using a text editor.
