OVERVIEW

Once the Real Port Driver has been installed on the Linux Server/Computer/VM, the user will need to add it to the VersaVision software.
The software will not begin to communicate with the Coordinator until it has been added to the software.
NOTE: If this is an ADD-ON Coordinator, meaning you already have an existing Coordinator, you will need to use a different ISO Code.
The ISO (Isolation Code) is the channel used to communicate with the Mesh Devices on the plant floor.
Coordinators can NOT have the same ISO Code unless they are separated by 1 or more Miles in distance.
The instructions below will explain how to add the Real Port Coordinator to the system.


REQUIREMENTS

Computer/Server/VM must have the Real Port Driver installed. Select the "Linux RP Install - Step 1" button.
User must have be assigned to a Role (VersaVision) that allows them to Add a Coordinator.
User will need to know if there are multiple Coordinators set up in VersaVision.


NAVIGATION

Administration can be accessed via the Home page menu or the Administration icon. Once Administration has been selected - select Mesh from the menu.

Good Practice - name the Coordinator something that will help you/others locate it.

If you have other Coordinator(s), click on the down arrow on the Isolation Code field.

The code that we will be selecting is 2.
