Congratulations! You're a proud owner of the Antsle! 🎉
Setup is easy! Actually, it’s super easy. Here’s our famous five minute installation process:
Important: Make sure you connect your LAN cable to the correct LAN port on the backside of the Antsle, as labeled.
Connect the other end of the LAN cable to a free LAN port on your router.
Power on your Antsle and allow a few minutes for the boot process.
Go to http://myantsle.local
Trouble getting the login screen? Try adding port 3000 to the URL: Use http://.local:3000, or if you know the IP address: http://x.x.x.x:3000
You should now be presented with the on-boarding screen:
Choose "Use an existing serial number" and follow the instructions.
You'll be asked to register your device with antHill. antHill is a central account, hosted on Antsle which is used to link ownership of your physical servers to a single profile. antHill allows you to restore backups between servers and also is where you manage your subscriptions, or can get support.
After you finish the onboarding process, wait a few minutes for antMan to restart, login again and you should now see the following:
Use antMan™ (antlet manager) to create a few antlets.
Go do great things with your private cloud! 🙂
Some exciting videos are next! We invite you to watch our popular FreedomCasts. They will show you in an entertaining manner how easy it is to master some real-life situations with your new Antsle.

It's also a best practice to configure your IPMI. See below.
The single ethernet port above the two USB ports is a dedicated IPMI port. The IPMI is configured in the BIOS setup of the Antsle.
Connect a keyboard and monitor and boot the Antsle (this is only required for the initial configuration).
When the Antsle begins to boot you will see the Supermicro splash screen. Watch for a message that says 'Press
<del> to enter setup' - then hit
Arrow over to the IPMI menu item.
Select 'BMC network configuration' > 'Configuration Address source' > Static and set the static IP address information.
Hit F4 to Save and Exit
Now you can open a browser and go to http://x.x.x.x (the IP address you set in the bios). Go to 'Configuration' > 'Users' to change the password and users for access to the IPMI. For console access, go to 'Remote Control' > 'iKVM/HTML5' or 'Remote Control' > 'Console Redirection' > 'Launch Console'
