    Click the user agreement link to read the End-User License Agreement.

    SFx Desktop searches in the connected network for available laser trackers. After it finishes its search, the list of trackers appears in the discovery list.

    Note

    A tracker that is already provisioned or ready to connect in the All My Assets screen does not appear in the discovery list.

  5. Select and check one or multiple trackers you want to connect to your SFx account from the discovery list. Click Next.

  6. Sign in to your SFx account.

    If you do not see your laser tracker in the list, use the instructions in this step to find the Gateway IP Address and then go to Connectivity Settings.

    Note

    If your laser tracker is not connected directly to your computer, it will not appear in the asset list. In this case, your laser tracker must be connected to the same network as your computer.

    To find your Gateway IP Address, follow these steps:

    1. From the SFx Desktop toolbar, click the small white gear icon (SFxDesktop_SettingsIcon_serviceConfiguration.PNG) to open the SFx Desktop Interfaces screen.
