  1. If you do not have a compatible Java Runtime Environment (JRE) installed, download and install one from the following location:
    www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jre8-downloads-2133155.html

  2. Install the IzoT Net Server.

    1. Insert the IzoT Net Server CD included with the Wi-Fi EVK into your CD or DVD drive.

    2. If the installation does not start automatically, browse the CD and double-click the IzoTNetServer402.exe installation program.  Any previously installed version of an LNS or OpenLNS Server will be automatically uninstalled.

    3. Follow the instructions provided by the installation wizard.  When you see the Customer Information window, enter the IzoT Commissioning Tool Activation Key printed on the back of the Commissioning Tool DVD.  Under Echelon Account, enter the user name (e-mail address) and password for your Echelon download account if you have one.  Entering your Echelon download account will enable you to download software from the Echelon Web site; make activating and managing licenses for multiple Echelon products easier; enable you to return, transfer, and recover licenses;and help you receive technical support from Echelon faster.  If you do not have an Echelon download account, you can create one here, or you can leave Echelon Account blank.

    4. Click Next.

    5. Click Install, and complete the instruction steps.

  3. Install the IzoT Commissioning Tool. Installing the IzoT Net Server on the same computer with the OpenLNS Commissioning Tool converts the OpenLNS Commissioning Tool to an IzoT Commissioning Tool. The product names referenced by the OpenLNS Server and the OpenLNS Commissioning Tool are not all updated to the new IzoT names by the IzoT Net Server. You will see references to both sets of names in the software and documentation.

    1. If you have not previously installed and activated the OpenLNS Commissioning Tool, insert the OpenLNS Commissioning Tool EVK Edition DVD included with the Wi-Fi EVK and install that now, entering the same IzoT Commissioning Tool Activation Key that you used for the IzoT Net Server installation.

    2. If you previously installed the OpenLNS Commissioning Tool Professional Edition,you can continue to use it and skip to the next step.  If you previously installed and activated the OpenLNS Commissioning Tool Standard Edition, use the Echelon License Wizard to return the OpenLNS Commissioning Tool Standard Edition license to your account and re-activate using the IzoT Commissioning Tool Activation Key used above.  This will remove the network limit set by the Standard Edition Activation Key.

  4. Create a LonTalk/IP interface.

    1. Click the Windows Start button, open the Echelon IzoT Network Service Utilities folder, and then click LonTalk-IP Interfaces.

    3. Select your LAN connection from the list of available IP interfaces.
    4. Click Create.
    5. Close the LonTalk/IP Interfaces application.

  5. Install a terminal emulator. A terminal emulator is optional, but is very useful for debugging the Wi-Fi EVB. If you do not already have a terminal emulator installed on your computer, then you can obtain one for free such as PuTTY.  You can download PuTTY fromwww.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html. Your chosen terminal emulator program must support serial communication using a standard (virtual) COM port at 115200 baud (8N1, no handshake).

  6. Install the WireShark network protocol analyzer. Wireshark is optional, but is very useful for network traffic analysis.

    2. Close the Wireshark tool if it is running.

    3. Copy lontalkip.dll from C:\Program Files (x86)\LonWorks\WireShark\LonTalkIp Plugin to your Wireshark plugins directory while Wireshark is not running. In a typical installation, this will be C:\Program Files\Wireshark\plugins\1.12.1, where 1.12.1 is your version of WireShark. The distribution includes the plug-in compiled for both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows. Use the one appropriate to your Windows installation.
