  2. Connect your cell phone, tablet, or computer to the access point's wifi network.
  3. Log in to your lumberjack logger with the credentials on the back of the access point and ensure it is properly configured to your INS and Velodyne unit in the “Settings” tab.
  4. Connect your ethernet cable to the Faro and your laptop computer and open FARO RT. Enter your Faro IP address (NOTE: The first three period delimited numbers of your laptop computer's LAN IPv4 address must match that of your Faro's IP address.)
