Cloud C² Configuration

To get the most out of your Screen Crab, configure your device to connect to your Cloud C2 instance; This way you'll be able to to remotely view configure and manage the device - all through the web.

To configure your Screen Crab to connect to your Cloud C2 instance follow these simple steps:

  1. Download the device.config from Cloud C2

  2. Copy the device.config to the root of the MicroSD card

  3. Configure config.txt on the MicroSD card for wireless

For the best performance using your Screen Crab connected to Cloud C2, use a config.txt that only contains the wireless options below

WiFi Configuration

The two WiFi parameters are:

  • WIFI_SSID – the network name

  • WIFI_PASS – the WPA-PSK password

Any characters after these variables will be used as the values. Special considerations must be made for WiFi network names and passwords containing special characters.

For example:

WIFI_SSID This is my network
WIFI_PASS The P@$$word is 1337!!

Should be escaped:

WIFI_SSID This is my network
WIFI_PASS The P\@\$\$word is 1337\!\!

To fully reset your Screen Crab's wireless configuration: remove the WIFI_SSID and WIFI_PASS parameters from yourconfig.txtand fully reboot your device before attempting to reconfigure.
