Network configurator tool
From SpinetiX Support Wiki
The network configurator tool helps to configure the Wi-Fi network details and/or Ethernet 8021.x authentication, by generating an XML configuration file that can be used to configure player from USB stick or restored from Control Center.
- The Wi-Fi setup can be done easier by connecting directly to the player's built-in Wi-Fi access point - this is available since firmware 4.6.0; for players with firmware 4.5.x, either connect them to the wired network and update the firmware, or use the tool below to configure the wireless network. See also how to add multiple Wi-Fi networks.
- The network configuration tool supports generating the configuration for simple 802.1X usage (e.g., PEAP MSCHAPv2). The DSOS also supports advanced 802.1X with numerous EAP and PEAP methods, including client-side (i.e., machine) certificates and password-based methods, among which EAP-TLS, EAP-TTLS, EAP-PWD, EAP-GTC, PEAP-EAP-MSCHAPv2, PEAP-EAP-TLS, etc. These methods are configured by manually writing the configuration file, according to the Configuration API documentation. You can also contact SpinetiX Professional Services for assistance.
- For Wi-Fi, enter the network name (SSID) and the authentication credentials - these are required, unless it's a public network, without any authentication. Click on the Authentication label below to find out more about each authentication type.
- For Ethernet 802.1x authentication, enter the username / identity (e.g., username, firstname.lastname@example.org, DOMAIN\username) and the password; then upload a PEM-formatted X.509 certificate (CA root certificate or any intermediary certificate) for trust verification of the authenticator - omitting the certificate is insecure (and not recommended!) as the authentication secrets would not be securely encrypted.
- If needed, you can add a manual IPv4 configuration; select "Do not change" to skip this part.
After entering all the required details, click the "Generate configuration" button to obtain an XML configuration file, that you can save
- on a USB stick in its root folder (see how to configure player from USB stick) or
- somewhere on your PC to restore it later from Control Center.
