Zynthian Web Configuration Tool User Guide

The WebConf Tool is the Zynthian Web Configuration Tool, a website hosted inside your Zynthian device that allows you to administer, configure, and inspect attributes of your Zynthian.

1 Login

You can access the Webconf tool from any computer using a web browser. Your Zynthian Box must be connected to your local network, or directly to your computer with an Ethernet cable (link local, point to point).

To connect your Zynthian Box to your local network you can use an Ethernet cable connected from your router to your Zynthian Box. Also, if WiFi has been configured previously in your Zynthian, you should be allowed to connect by WiFi.

To access your Zynthian box from your browser, you can use either of these 2 methods:

  • Browse to http://zynthian.local. This doesn't work in all devices. Many Windows-PCs and mobile devices don't fully support the mDNS protocol that enable the use of named addresses on a local network.
  • If you your browser can’t find the zynthian.local address, you will then need to figure out what IP address has been assigned to your Zynthian Box. For more details, see Finding your IP address. Once you have your Zynthian's IP address (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx), you can browse to http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx. Easy!
