// GENERAL INFORMATION
//
////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
NOTE: Use http://moode, moode.local or IP address, whichever works on your network.
Typically Android OS will only work with IP address.
- SSH login user: pi, pwd: moodeaudio
- Preface commands requiring root permission with sudo
- Access Point (AP) mode:
(a) IP address: 172.24.1.1
(b) SSID: Moode
(c) Password: moodeaudio
(d) Channel: 6
- AP mode starts automatically when:
(a) WiFi SSID is set to 'None' in Network config and there is no Ethernet connection
(b) WiFi SSID is defined but no IP address was assigned by DHCP. This typically
occurs when connection to the SSID fails.
