NTP Server setup

GoBright uses the NTP (Network Time Protocol) to sync all times on the displays. Therefore an NTP Server setup is required on the GoBright Gateway and displays. By default this is configured as follows:

http://0.pool.ntp.org/
http://1.pool.ntp.org/

This setting can be changed following the configuration steps below:

Configuring the Gateway

The Gateway needs NTP synchronization to work. So before the Gateway can be activated or work at all, NTP should work. 

  • Use a tool (like ipscan) to find the IP address of the gateway or check the IP address within the GoBright portal under Settings > Devices
  • Access the gateway by entering the IP and port number 8080: 
    192.168.0.1:8080
  • Log in using the pincode that has been set within the Gateway profile. If no pincode has been set leave this field empty and press Sign In

    Note that within this screen the NTP, Date & time are being displayed on the bottom and verified.

  • Press the Settings button in the top-right corner 
  • Change the Value of the NTP Server and press Save
