TekMonitor (TEK 1 and TEK 2)

A: Reset the power on the TekMonitor and TEK 1201. You may also need to connect to the TekMonitor using TekManager.

Q: Do I need to have a TekMonitor in order to use my TekTouchPad? Can the touchscreen just talk directly to the switcher? What do we do if we only want a bare-bones setup?

Q: How do I obtain the IP address and passcode information from a TekMonitor?
A: The best way obtain the IP address and passcode information is to connect to the USB port on the TEK 2 and run TekManager. From TekManager, select “USB Debug Port Access” in Tools.
