Antsle Nano Setup

Getting started with the Antsle Nano

Congratulations! You're a proud owner of the Antsle Nano 🎉

Set it up in four simple steps.

1. Unpack your new Antsle Nano

2. Use a LAN cable to connect the Antsle Nano with your router

3. Double-check that the SD card is inserted properly

4. Connect the power adapter

As soon as the Nano has power, it will automatically boot up - no need to press a power button.

Do not disconnect power during first boot

While booting for the first time, the Antsle Nano finishes the edgeLinux installation by itself. That process may take up to 15 minutes. During this time, please do not unplug the power chord or your Nano may fail to boot.

Once the initial boot process is completed, you can reach antMan by typing http://myantsle.local into the address bar of your web browser.

Windows user? Install Bonjour Print Services or iTunes. (Read why)

After you see antMan at http://myantsle.local, login using user name root and password antsle to login to your Antsle Nano for the first time.

When logged in, antMan will ask you for your e-mail address. Make sure to enter the address you used to purchase your Antsle Nano so that we can verify your order. If you need to use another email address for some reason, please contact support.

Enter the e-Mail address you used to purchase your Nano

Hit confirm, and you will receive an email with a list of Antsles associated to your account.

If this is your first Antsle, find the token for your serial number and enter it.

If you see a table with more than one entry, look for a serial number that begins with `3000-` (the prefix used for Nanos) and enter the corresponding token. DO NOT use the same serial-number twice, or it will invalidate your license.

Enter the token you received via e-Mail

Finish the setup by entering the token. antMan will then restart. This might take a few minutes. Once restarted, it will redirect you to the login screen again.

Log in with the same credentials you used before - and that's it!

5. Activate your Antsle in antHill

This step is optional, but highly recommended. AntHill will allow you to configure SSL-access to your Nano, backup your antlets, enable Heal-to-Cloud and much more.

Go to the antHill activation page and create your antHill account by following the instructions. Once you see your antHill dashboard, click `Activate new Antsle`

Already have an account? Follow this link, to log in.

Click on Activate new Antsle and follow the instructions

After going through the activation steps your Antsle will now show up on your antHill dashboard. Your Antsle is now activated!

Last but not least...

We strongly advise you to change your root password after the setup is complete. To do that, click the user icon in the top right corner and go to Settings.

AntMan will now show you the dashboard and you can start creating antlets! To make sure the installation was successful, you can go to Settings > System Information and review the serial number.

Change your root password once the setup is complete
