NOTE: The computer and the Commander have to be on the same network for this guide to work. A direct ethernet connection is the best way to put both device in the same network.

As the note mentioned above, the computer needs to be on the same network and the best way is to have connected from the computer to the MNSP with a ethernet cable. MNSP can be a Cybera, Mako, Fortigate, Cisco Router, etc. Also will need to call your MNSP to see which port the ethernet needs to go in. (Mako is usually port 3.)

Here are directions of what to do next once the connection is done:

Step 1: On your Back Office PC, go to Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center > Click on Change Adapter Settings

Step 2: Right click on the Ethernet Adapter network and click on properties

Note: In the Adapter Settings screen, there are a list of networks, you should see your Ethernet Adapter plugged in

Step 3: On the Properties window, select option Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4) and click on properties

Step 4: On the new Properties window select the option labeled as "Use the following IP address", and type the following information:

Cybera:

  • IP address: 10.96.10.2

  • Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0

  • Default Gateway: 10.96.10.1

  • Primary DNS: 8.8.8.8

  • Secondary DNS: 8.8.4.4

If not, then it will be whatever Cybera tells you it is.

Mako/Sunoco Only:

  • IP address: 192.168.87.2

  • Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0

  • Default Gateway: 192.168.87.1

  • Primary DNS: 8.8.8.8

  • Secondary DNS: 8.8.4.4

Mako/Any Other Brand:

  • IP address: 192.168.13.2

  • Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0

  • Default Gateway: 192.168.13.1

  • Primary DNS: 8.8.8.8

  • Secondary DNS: 8.8.4.4

Fortigate Normal (Non-Sunoco/Philip 66):

  • IP address: 172.28.214.226

  • Subnet mask: 255.255.255.248

  • Default Gateway: 172.28.214.225

  • Primary DNS: 8.8.8.8

  • Secondary DNS: 8.8.4.4

Fortigate Chevron

  • IP address: 172.29.28.38

  • Subnet mask: 255.255.255.48

  • Default Gateway: 172.29.28.33

  • Primary DNS: 8.8.8.8

  • Secondary DNS: 8.8.4.4

If these ip addresses don't work then the MNSP will need to be called to either open the port for backoffice or get what the ip address is for that site.
