Fig. 1: RipEX2-HS

RipEX2 access defaults: IP, username: admin, password: admin or IP when accessing over the optional USB/ETH adapter or Wifi adapter.

Power on the RipEX2-HS and wait approx. for 25 seconds for the RipEX2 OS to boot. When accessing over the optional USB/ETH adapter or Wifi adapter, your PC will get its IP settings from the built-in DHCP server and you have to type in your browser.

When accessing over Ethernet, set a static IP 192.168.169.x/24 on your PC first, connect your PC to RipEX2 ETH interface, start your browser and type in the address line. When accessing RipEX2 for the first time and using https, you have to accept the https security certificate issued by RACOM.


Both RipEX2 units are in factory default settings.
