The main screen allows direct control of the individual electrical ports on the back of the unit. Prompts are available that will help you through each step by hovering your mouse over the appropriate button.

Double clicking on the control button will activate the power on / off functions. As you can see there are options for ALL ON, ALL OFF and also to control the individual ports. Up to 4 user accounts ( Tier 3 Software) are available with access only to the designated ports. This is configured in the ACCOUNT menu.

If the Reboot option is selected on the individual ports, clicking on the button will initiate a reboot instead of a power on or power off control. You can also go into the SYSTEM > OTHER and select the reboot option to enable this option by default.

NOTE for individual ports, you have to select the SET button for the port you want to control before proceeding. This activates the available options for the port. Some options will not be available depending on the version of the RPS-SP4L unit you have purchased.

To begin configuration of the unit after inital login it is best to go to SYSTEM > NETWORK Screen to check the configuration of the IP Address for the unit. ( For further information on this home page menu, click here.)
