NetBurner Quick Start Guides
Running the Factory Application

Factory Application Overview

The factory application that is included with the NetBurner module includes a simple web page, network configuration options and a demo of some of the hardware available on the device.

Find your Device

To begin, you will need to find out the IP address of your module. There are several ways to do this. One option is to use the included utility IPSetup. If the device is powered on and plugged in to the same network as your PC, run IPSetup and all NetBurner devices on your network will be displayed with configuration options available.

Another option to find the IP address of your device is to use the NBEclipse IDE. As before, ensure that your device is powered on and plugged in to the same network as your PC. Open NBEclipse, and in the bottom left of the workspace, NBFind can be found running. This will list the IP, application and MAC address of all NetBurner devices on your local network.

If these options are failing, there may be a firewall issue blocking the applications from sending the UDP broadcast that is used to locate NetBurner devices on the network. Always grant NetBurner applications the ability to get through your OS firewall. Ensure that UDP port 20034 is open for use.

View the Web Page

The factory application is running a web server with a basic web page detailing some of the features of the device and development board. Once you have found your device's IP address, open your favorite browser and point it at the IP address of the device.

Develop your own Application

Now that the NetBurner tools are installed, the hardware is set up and you have verified this by accessing the device's web server. You have now graduated beyond this quick start guide.

To begin writing an application, we recommend reading through the NBEclipse Getting Started guide and the NetBurner Programmers Guide. In the NBEclipse guide, you will find information on writing NetBurner applications, sending new applications to the module and debugging with the graphical debugger. The Programmers guide will teach you more about the NetBurner libraries, operating system, and writing of applications in a multitask environment. Both of these documents can be found in the \nburn\docs folder of your NNDK software installation.

NetBurner Examples

The NNDK includes a multitude of examples that demonstrate the various hardware and software applications of the kit. These examples can be found in your NNDK installation directory, under the examples folder. The default location is \nburn\examples.
