Device Software Configuration:
There are 2 options for device software configuration of your RPS-SP4L. You can download
the RPS-SP4L-IPEDIT (click) program, or setup your computer on the same default IP Subnet as the RPS-SP4L, and access the
unit directly by opening your web browser. See below for details. Note that the default IP address of the RPS-SP4L unit is 192.168.1.10 . If you place the remote power switch on your network and another computer/device has this IP address, you will not be able to access the RPS-SP4L unit. Please watch for this possible conflict.
Software Configuration – Option #1
Once the RPS-SP4L is powered and the network cable is connected, you will need to download the configuration program, RPS-SP4L-IPEDIT by clicking here. Start the rps-sp4l-ipedit.exe program. The initial screen is shown below.

Software Configuration Option #2
- The Default IP Address of the RPS-SP4L is 192.168.1.10. You need to set your computer to the same subnet in order to access the remote power controller via a web browser. The same subnet means the first three parts of the IP Address of your computer, such as XXX.XXX.XXX.abc must be the same as the RPS-SP4L unit and the last grouping, the abc, must be different. An acceptable IP address for your computer would be 192.168.1.15, Netmask 255.255.255.0 and default gateway of 192.168.1.1. You typically need to go into your Start > Control Panel > Network Settings > Select a Network Port > Right Click > Select Properties > Click TCP/IP > which should open up a network configuration window. Please remember to write down your initial settings so you can return your computer to its present state.
- Once your computer is on the same subnet as the RPS-SP4L unit, you can access the remote power switch
by opening your IE browser and going to https://192.168.1.10 . A web login screen will be shown. Make sure the network cable is plugged into the RPS-SP4L unit and the master power switch is ON.The Default User Name is admin and the password is admin
