How can the IP address of a Test Box be changed?

Please send us the new IP address, netmask & default router at least two working days before the renumbering should be effective.

TT-ops will notify you when the change has been configured. When your new addressing schema is ready, press the reset button to reboot the machine. After rebooting, ping the new IP address to make sure that the box is there. Data-taking will restart automatically.
