EtherRain Admin

EtherRain Image EtherRain Admin is the configuration utility for the EtherRain controller. Configuring EtherRain is easy as generally only three parameters need to be changed: name, mode, and account number (if using LawnCheck). The software options listed on this page will allow you to configure your controller quickly using your favorite computer type.

NOTE: Rev C EtherRain controllers offer a web interface allowing the three primary configuration parameters to be configured without EtherRain Admin. See the quick-start instructions that came with your controller for more information. EtherRain Admin is still benefitical for use with Rev C controllers for purposes of finding (network discovery) and testing.
