There are several methods you can use to determine the local IP address of a BrightSign player.
Power up the unit without an SD card. After a few moments, the IP address will be listed on the connected display.
Diagnostic Web Server (BrightAuthor)
If you enabled the Diagnostic Web Server (DWS) when you set up the player, and you have Bonjour (Apple Bonjour Print Services for Windows) installed on your PC, you can type the following in a web browser, replacing "serialnumber" with the serial number of the player: http://brightsign-serialnumber.local/
This will bring up the DWS page. The IP address will be listed in the Info tab.
If you have access to the network router, you can log in and see which IP address is assigned to the entry with the player's MAC address. The MAC address of the player is located on the bottom of the player; it is also displayed when you power up the unit without an SD card.
