Mobile Bridge Configurator FAQ


Version 2.0


The Eagle Eye Mobile Bridge Configurator aims to facilitate the configuration of a bridge without the need for a keyboard or monitor. Using this application you can configure bridges, run network diagnostics, and set IP addresses using only a USB cable and a mobile phone.

At this time, the configurator is not able to detect error messages from the bridge. In this sense, it is not an efficient tool for troubleshooting units, however it is adequate for initial configuration.
