Manage the i.LON 700 Host IP Address

The i.LON 700 can be configured to use a static LAN IP address, or to automatically request and receive an IP address from a DHCP server. By default, the i.LON 700 is configured to request and receive its IP address from a DHCP server and automatically fallback to a randomly assigned static IP address if a DHCP server is not available. Also by default, if the i.LON 700 does not receive an address from a DHCP server, it falls back to a static IP address of 192.168.200.x, where x is a value from 0 to 255.

  1. The host IP address of a newly installed i.LON 700 can be found from a client on the same IP subnet using mDNS (Multicast DNS, often referred to as Zeroconf or Bonjour). On a Windows platform, confirm that the computer has the Bonjour service installed by launching Services from the Windows Search box and looking for the Bonjour Service. If Bonjour is installed, the entry will be similar to the following:








  2. If Bonjour is not installed, download the Bonjour Print Services for Windows at support.apple.com/bonjour

  3. Once Zeroconf or Bonjour is installed, open http://<hostname>.local in the web browser, where hostname is the hostname printed on the label located at the bottom of the i.LON 700. For example, if the hostname is smartserver-T6tWyfK, open the i.LON 700 home page at https://smartserver-T6tWyfK.local.

  4. To change the host IP address, open the i.LON 700 home page and then click Network at the top of the web page. A page similar to the following appears:



  5. To automatically request and receive an IP address from a DHCP server, select DHCP from the pull-down menu in the top field. To assign a static IP address, select Static IP Address from the pull-down menu in the top field, enter the network mask (also known as the subnet mask) in the Network Mask field, and then enter the default gateway in the Default Gateway field.
