How to connect the Digi SP1

HP1000 Digi Network installation

Digi  952 912 3456   tech support number


The steps: 

Connect everything.  You will need a short CAT5 “patch” cable.

Load the time clock software and register it.

Make incredibly sure that all the connections are rock-solid tight, snapped in, and screwed together.


Make sure the time clock terminal is connected to the Digi, and the Digi is also powered.

Make sure the red and green lights are lit.  Check the connections one more time.

Load the Digi software.  Note: There are dip switches on the Digi; leave them alone.

The software will automatically find the network IP address.

Accept all the defaults.  It will make the connection for you. 

The type of connection is the one at the top of the list, says REAL One. 

In any event, it is the default setting; this is a very simple installation.


1) Connect the Digi to the time clock, power, network cable, etc.
2) Once the red and green light stop blinking on the Digi, it has obtained an IP address from DHCP
3) Use the Digi software (can be found on website for the device itself) to install a RealPort. It should automatically list the Digi and its IP address as one of the options. Set it as UDP (Serial Only)
3b) If you can’t find it, search DHCP server using the mac address on the bottom of the Digi to find its IP. LAN scanning software can find it as well.

4) Go to the IP address of the Digi in a web browser and log in using the username root and password dbps. You can configure settings here if needed.
5) If you are using an RS232 type time clock, Go to timeclock software and add the clock as rs232 and using the COM port you installed. You will need to assign a clock number on the clock itself.


Start the time clock software.  Go to the Clock list.  Enter the information below.


This goes in the dial up string:

Clock  Name              Type                            COM                          Dialup String

01        Clock Name             HP00X0            com number       (nothing goes in here)


Click test, it should say “Communication Test Okay”.  If not, check all your connections. 
This cannot be more strongly emphasized.
