Here you will find answers to setting up your Raspberry Pi and computer as a stand-alone server.

Raspberry Pi

 How to configure a router for a Rasberry Pi
  1. Connecting your computer to your router.
  2. Enter router address in browser (see user manual; mostly:
  3. Logging in (see operating instructions, back of router, enclosed note)
  4. Change device password if necessary
  5. Set up Wi-Fi (network name for example: OpenRobertaLab)
  6. Password for configuration e.g. : example123
  7. Wi-Fi key e.g.: 456789
  8. Setting "DHCP" (sometimes in advanced settings / expert mode)
  9. All connected devices with the respective MAC address are displayed here.
  10. Now assign a fixed IP for the MAC address of the Raspberry Pi (refer to the user manual if necessary).
  11. Save the settings
  12. Disconnecting the Raspberry Pi from the router
  13. Connect again & wait until the green light stops blinking
  14. Check IP address in DHCP list (has IP address been changed?)
  15. Then the new IP address can be inserted into the address line of the Internet browser and the Open Roberta Lab should open.
 A popup window appears with the message »Firmware of the Open Roberta Lab does not match the firmware of the robot«.

This message appears if the firmware version on your robot is more current than the one on your server. Please update the firmware on your Raspberry Pi. If the firmware version of your robots is older than the one on your server, it will be updated automatically.

 Login does not work and the robot does not connect.

With the Raspberry Pi image you have a local version of the Lab installed, with which you can use the Lab even without an internet connection. As this is a local installation, you will not be able to log in with your online account as it is stored on our server. However, you can register new users on your local server. To connect a robot to your local server, you need to specify the IP address of your server instead of the online version. In the case of the EV3, you can enable the advanced features in the menu and manually enter the address of the server you want to use. If you are using the USB Connector, you can also check the box "Show advanced options" and enter the address of the Raspberry Pi.

Please note that in both cases the port of your local lab is 1999.
