WiFi Connectivity Configuration

Required Infrastructure

Make sure to connect the devices running the POS application as well as the Verifone e355 to the same WiFi network.

We strongly recommend to reserve a Static IP for each e355 you connect to the WiFi in your network. Make double sure to use unique IPs for each e355 connected.

In doubt, involve your network administrator to help with the setup.
