How to connect to your Redbird and view Navigator on a wireless device
Connecting a wireless device to your Redbird training device to access Navigator allows you to use apps such as Instructor Station, Corvus, or Redbird Connect on a separate device, even while flights are running/loaded on the system.
To be able to connect a wireless device to your Redbird training device, your training device first needs to be connected to a network. Use one of the following options to connect your Redbird to a network:
- Connect an Ethernet cable into an open port on the back of the computer, and connect the other end to one of the four yellow LAN ports on the back of the Navigator Router (provided with all Redbird AATD systems equipped with Navigator).
- Connect an Ethernet cable into an open port on the back of the computer, and connect the other end of the cable to your local WiFi-enabled network.
- Plug in a USB Wireless Adapter to enable WiFi capability, then connect to your local WiFi network through Windows on the system.
Once your Redbird is connected to a network, you can connect to Navigator with any wireless device that has a web browser (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge, etc.) and is able to connect to the same network as your Redbird. Laptops, tablets, and iPads meet these criteria.
- Find the IP Address of the simulator by selecting the "Devices" menu in the top right corner of the user interface.
- The IP address should be listed next to the Internet pass/fail check if the system is connected to a network with a detectable IP address.
- Enter the simulator's IP address into a web browser on a wireless device that is connected to the same network as the simulator computer.
