If you are using an independent standalone setup with a router, WiFi and a computer, you need to consider the following rules for a proper operation.
Always power on the components in this order:

  1. Your router (wait until all services such as DHCP, DNS and NTP are online)
  2. Your computer
  3. The virtual machine for Laboperator server
  4. Your Connector Boxes

Here's why:

  • As the hostname needs to be resolvable in the network, it is crucial to wait for the router to be up and running¬† before starting the Laboperator server virtual machine.
  • As the Connector Boxes need to connect to the Laboperator server, make sure the server is up and running before powering up the Connector Boxes.
