BARIX INSTREAMER SETUP
Initial device setup and accessing the Barix Instreamer admin page
To set up your Instreamer, first connect the device to the network through the rear ethernet port, then plug in the USB power cord. All Barix Instreamers come configured to negotiate an IP address once they're connected to a network and powered on, and then announce that IP address through the front audio port. Plug in speakers or headphones to the front audio port and power on the Instreamer to hear the device's assigned IP address. Navigate to that IP address in your preferred web browser to access the device administration page.
Click the CONFIGURATION link in the top navigation bar. Ignore the basic settings displayed by default and select "Advanced Settings" from the navigation menu on the left. Individual category settings should be as follows:
Leave as-is. This should not require any special configuration.
