3– Wait until the DTPI device reboots (approx. 30 seconds), enter the new IP address in the Configuration window at the top, and then click Detect.

4– The updated screen will now show the same device details as before, but will display the new IP parameters.

PART 3: Firmware upgrading of the DTPI device
