Initial Setup

Initial Setup

Congratulations on the receipt of your Codan | DTC product. This page gives instructions to help you get started with first-time setup, access your device and enter its configuration menu, and provides necessary software and Quick Start Guides.

  • First, download the NodeFinder software by clicking the link below. NodeFinder is a Windows-based software tool used to help discover and connect to Codan | DTC devices on an IP network, regardless of IP address configurations and modes.
  • Next, install NodeFinder on a Windows PC. Ensure that all install and access permissions are allowed during the installation process.

  • Physically connect your Codan | DTC product to the Windows PC using the relevant IP connectivity cable. This is typically an RJ45 Ethernet or USB-C cable. Cable connections are specific to each product. For assistance in this regard, find your product in the list below and download the relevant Quick Start Guide for detailed visual explanation on hardware connectivity.

  • Ensure that the device is powered on. As above, find your product in the list below and refer to the relevant Quick Start Guide for assistance in device hardware connectivity.

  • Run NodeFinder, either by clicking the desktop icon or from the Start menu. NodeFinder will open and display information on all Codan | DTC devices visible on the network. If no devices are visible, click the Refresh (clockwise arrows) button at the top left.
Watch the tutorial video below for a walkthrough on how to use Node Finder:
  • By default, devices are delivered in DHCP mode. If required, right click on the listed device to disable DHCP mode and assign it a fixed IP address. Ensure that the fixed IP address is on the same IP subnet as the Windows laptop.

  • Your device should now be reachable from the Windows laptop, either via the given DHCP address, or the fixed IP address that has been assigned. Double-click the device in NodeFinder. Your default web browser will automatically open, navigating directly to the hosted Web User Interface of your device.

  • Your Codan | DTC device requires an initial default password. For SOL8 SDR and NetNode devices, this password is <Eastwood>. This password can and should be modified to a more secure individual password in the Web User Interface of your device following initial setup.

  • After entering the initial default password, you are now in the main Web User Interface of your Codan | DTC device.
