OWS Setup Wizard

The Setup Wizard or First Time Wizard can be accessed from both the web client and the Local Console (Linux) and will guide the user through a basic setup of the recorder. If a user wishes to make system changes after the initial setup process using the Setup Wizard, these options can be found in System Settings, User Management, and Network Configuration.

NOTE: The user experience with Setup Wizard is slightly different for Windows versus Linux. On a Windows Operating System, the Network is configured under Windows settings.
