log in to the gateway with user admin(no password required)
Set an admin password
Set an admin password as follows so that subsequent logins require authentication:
from the Status page (displayed after login) scroll down to the section entitled ADMIN PASSWORD
select a password (ex: minew123) and enter this into both Password fields
click Apply and observe a notification of successful change
Connect the gateway to the host network
Select the Network page (from the top blue bar) and then configure the gateway's connection to the host network either via Ethernet or WiFi , as follows:
By default, the gateway will be configured to connect to the host network via Ethernet, obtaining an IP address using DHCP. If this is the desired connection, then no action is required aside from the physical connection to the Ethernet network.
Select WiFi connectivity by clicking on the Wireless toggle then:
create a new connection Profile by assigning a profile name
from the Available Access Point dropdown select the target WiFi network—most of the remaining fields will be automatically entered
enter the WiFi password in the Key field
click on Restart service to take effect to create the connection profile and, when prompted in a pop-up message, click on Apply for the connection to be established immediately
As the Minew G1 supports simultaneous WiFi Access Point and Client modes, it should establish the connection with the host network while allowing the laptop or mobile to remain connected to complete the configuration in the following step.
Run the Pareto Anywhere open source middleware to observe the forwarded data.
How to run Pareto Anywhere?
We provide friendly tutorials to install on a laptop, a Pi, etc.
Is there a quick and dirty way?
Yes. Our barnowl-minew package provides a simple means to receive gateway data and log to the console (see below).
Observing data in Pareto Anywhere requires no additional action if an instance based on the pareto-anywhere package is running, or, for quick-and-dirty validation, run barnowl-minew as described below.
If a Pareto Anywhere installation based on the pareto-anywhere package is already present and running on the target computer on the host network, the data forwarded by the gateway should be available in both the web apps and APIs.
