Connect reader

Connect your reader to the same computer or network where you start Putty.

Power up your reader.

At next steps we assume that your reader IP address is: 10.1.1.3

Testing reader connection

Before proceeding test that your reader answers through network connection.

Run ping test using Windows Command Prompt or Power Shell.

C:\Users\user>ping 10.1.1.3
