In order to control Science On a Sphere® from your iPad, you must configure your
iPad to communicate with your SOS computer. To get started, tap on the
Settings icon on the homepage of your device, and then
tap on the SOS Remote entry on the left hand side list.
In the SOS Computers to Control (Name or IP) section, enter the host name or IP
address of your primary and backup SOS computers in the respective fields. Use
the Connection field to select between which SOS computer you want the iPad to
connect to — primary or backup.
Now, return to the homepage and tap on the SOS Remote
app icon to open the app.
Tap on the Settings icon located in the tab bar to open
the SOS Settings page. The host name or IP address you just entered should
appear in the section labeled Connection.
SOS Remote app will automatically try to initiate a connection between your
device and your SOS computer. If a connection has been established, the word
Connected will be displayed in the Connection section. If it is unable to
connect, the words Not Connected will be displayed, along with an error message
to help you troubleshoot the problem. The SOS Remote app will keep trying to
reconnect to the SOS computer every few seconds.
If at any point the device is unable to connect to the SOS computer, a red badge
with a question mark will automatically appear on top of the Settings tab of the
SOS Remote app.
