Description

HMP Control Center is a responsive web-based user interface, used to interact directly with the device, both for making configuration changes and for requesting information from the device. It is running directly on the device's internal HTTP server on port 80 and can be accessed from any regular browser.


Note Note: To access the Control Center interface, you first have to access and log into the player web interface. Once done, click on the gear icon from the top bar menu to access Control Center. See also the "Get Connected" tutorial for more details about connecting an HMP device on the network.
