Ethernet connections to VeriColor Hub systems are not plug and play. There is a specific methodology required to accomplish this.

Note: The Ethernet cable used to connect should be a cross over Ethernet cable instead of a straight through cable. The screens below are from Windows XP. In Windows 7 the screens will vary although the concept is the same.
