Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

The first Step is to connect Robotino® Factory with the master computer. If you run a single robot only, then master computer and you robot are most likely identical. If you run multiple robots in a fleet, then a special robot of the fleet is the master computer or the master computer is a dedicated PC.

Expand the information for your robot by clicking the robotino_plus button. If the robot is the master computer, then the shown IP address must be the same as entered in the connection dialogue. If this is not the case then edit the robot's IP address in the robot's web-interface on the Config page, section /etc/robotino/smartsoft_slace.conf, key "RobotinoIP".
