    Find your Base Unit SSID in the list of available Wi-Fi. The default SSID to connect to the Base Unit is 'ClickShare-<serial base number>'.
    Detailed instructions on how to connect to the Base Unit’s Wi-Fi is mentioned in the [KB8045]

  2. Enter the password (default is clickshare)

  3. Open the web browser (e.g. Google Chrome) on your laptop and enter the default IP address 192.168.2.1

Connecting to Base Unit’s Web Configurator point via wired IP (or wireless client)

This procedure can be followed for the Base Unit’s operating other than the standalone mode.

  1. Open the web browser (e.g. Google Chrome) on your laptop and enter the wired IP of your Base Unit.
    To connect to the wired or wireless interface of the Base Unit, you can either find the IP address of the Base Unit on the splash screen (if displayed - see note below) or via the ClickShare Desktop application.

  2. Enter the login credentials, accept EULA and click OK.
    Username: admin
    Password: admin

Finding the IP address of your Base Unit on the splash screen of the Base Unit:

  • CS-100(H), CSE-200(+) and CSE-800

    When not turned off in the web interface, the wired IP address of the Base Unit can be found on the splash screen of the Base Unit, either on the bottom when the default wallpaper is used (See item #2 for the wired interface and #3 for the wireless interface in case of wireless Client mode on the CSE-200+) or in the top left corner in case a custom wallpaper has been configured.



    Showing or removing this information on the splash screen of the Base Unit can be configured in XMS or the Web Configurator of the Base Unit, under Personalisation > On-Screen ID > Show network info.
  • CX-20, CX-30 and CX-50

    By default, the network information is not shown on the splash screen. To be able to view this information on the splash screen, you can change the configuration in XMS or the web Configurator of the Base Unit, under Personalisation > On-Screen ID > Show network info. This information will then be shown under the instructions window when no-one is sharing.



    For CX devices that do not show this information on the splash screen, we advise using the method described below (finding IP address via ClickShare Desktop app) to access the Web Configurator.

Finding the IP address of your Base Unit via the ClickShare Desktop app:

  1. Open the ClickShare desktop application on your personal device.
    ClickShare Desktop app can be downloaded and install from here (no admin rights required)

  2. In the ClickShare application, click on the Select meeting room and select your Base Unit from the list.

    By default, the meeting room name is what will be shown in the list and if this is not configured, the Base Unit's SSID will be shown. When not changed, this is "ClickShare-" followed by the serial number of the Base Unit

    Note

    If the unit is not on the network or is not reachable by the device used to connect, it will automatically change your device's network to the Wi-Fi of the Base Unit. This is indicated by the following message.

  3. Once connected, click on the 'Quick menu' in the top right corner and select "About".

  4. This will open a window with all information on your Base Unit and ClickShare application. Click on the Base Unit's IP address to open your default browser and connect to the ClickShare Configurator.

Note

Due to the self-signed certificate on the HTTPS address, you will need to dismiss the browser's warning before being able to continue. Note that this warning is normal, and continuing will not compromise the security of your Base Unit, installation, network or personal device. More info on this can be found in the ClickShare Security white paper.

Note

From ClickShare firmware v1.8.0.6 onwards, the Network Integration tab (under the Wi-Fi & Network menu) has been removed from the ClickShare Configurator and has been replaced by a Buttons tab (under the System menu).

With the release of the firmware version 1.9.1, the option Enable over LAN has been removed from the Base Unit WebUI. See [KB10955].
