Question / Issue

How do I configure my RDTg w/ Keypad (v7)?

Answer / Solution

There are two primary ways to configure an RDTg, with a Static IP and using DHCP.

 

Connect the RDTg

  1. There is a lock on the top of the terminal. Using the key that is provided, unlock the terminal

    NOTE! The key will remain in the terminal when it’s unlocked so do not try to remove it.

  2. Open the face of the terminal – it opens from the top
  3. Feed an Ethernet cable through the back of the terminal and connect it to the Ethernet port on the board
  4. Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to the network
  5. Plug in the power supply, feed its cable through the back of the terminal, and connect it to the Power Input port on the board
  6. Close the face of the terminal

These next steps will depend on your network. Some networks will assign an IP address to the clock (Dynamic) or the IP address can be set manually (Static).

Hop to Static

 

Configure for DHCP

After it boots up, the first screen that appears is Company Selection (the bar at the top will be red).

For these steps, use the Tab key to move between buttons.

  1. On a computer, go to the Clock Status page

    Without SSL – http://[server]/app/terminals
    With SSL – https://[server]/app/terminals

  2. Log into Clock Status
  3. Click Add
  4. Select Series 300/400 and click Next
  5. Select Upload clock connection settings via USB and click Next
  6. Ensure that the scheme, server, and port are correct
  7. Enter a Device Name and click Next
  8. If a wireless adapter is connected to the clock, click on the Wifi Settings branch:

    Choose the type
    Enter the SSID
    Enter the passcode

  9. Click Download and save the file to a memory stick
  10. On the RDTg, click on Device at the bottom of the screen
  11. Click Load from USB, connect the memory stick, and click OK
  12. With the saved configuration highlighted, click Select, and OK when successful
  13. The Company Selection will re-appear (the bar at the top should turn blue)

    Wait for several seconds, but if the bar remains red, click Device, and either:
    Replace the server name with the server’s IP address OR
    Add a domain name to the end of the server name.

  14. If you have not already done so log into TimeClock Manager and create a user

    This user should have a Clock Edit Hours password.
    In case more permissions are added later, add a System Access password.
    This user should have access to Manage Terminals (under the Clocks branch).

  15. On the terminal’s Company Selection screen, with the company highlighted, click Configure
  16. Click Yes to log in and register the terminal
  17. Enter the user’s Edit Hours password and click Enter
