Remote Spectrum Monitorâ„¢ MS27201A User Guide : Instrument Overview : Connecting to the MS27201A or Localhost
 
Connecting to the MS27201A or Localhost
Connecting to a networked instrument or to the localhost is established via the System menu. Insert the USB memory device into the instrument and wait for about 10 seconds. Insert the USB memory device onto a PC, then open the ip.txt file and copy the IP address in the HOSTNAME/IP ADDRESS field on the MS27201A software. Otherwise use the static IP address (10.0.0.2) that is shipped with the unit.
