Usage Guidelines

Starting using nBox is very simple. Startup the box, plug an Ethernet cable to its management interface and connect it to a network. From another PC open a web browser and visit http://192.168.160.10/ (the default IP address of your nBox).

Clicking on the login button the system will ask for credentials as follows:

Upon the completion of the login process, the user is redirected to the dashboard page where most valuable informations are shown. CPU, memory, storage and network interfaces state indicators are displayed and updated in real time.

Each nBox web page comes in a three section format: header, where a menu bar is available to jump from a single configuration page to all the others quickly, the body, where the most important fields are displayed, and the footer, with additional infos. The web interface requires a javascript-enabled browser.
