Araknis 920 Series Layer 3 Managed Switch User Manual


  • Interface — A port on the switch. Also called a switchport.

  • Clients — A device on the network. Sometimes written as a client device.

Interface access

Araknis switches can be configured through OvrC or the local interface. The local interface is accessible using OvrC’s WebConnect feature, typing the switch’s DHCP address into your browser’s address bar, or using the switch’s default IP address.

Note: -__.Only features in the local UI are supported by Snap One.

Configuring the switch in OvrC

OvrC provides Wi-Fi management, remote device management, real-time notifications, and intuitive customer management, using your computer or mobile device. Setup is plug-and-play, with no port forwarding or DDNS address required.

To add this device to your OvrC account:

  1. Connect the switch to the internet.

  2. Log into OvrC (

  3. Scan the site using an OvrC Pro device or add the switch manually by entering the MAC address and Service Tag.

Logging in to the local interface

Log into the switch using the default credentials. You must update the credentials after initial login.





Other access methods: DHCP IP address

The switch is configured to DHCP by default so that the DHCP server can assign an IP address when the switch is connected to the network (the DHCP server is usually the router). This address can be used for accessing the web interface.

Use one of these methods to find the IP address of the switch:

  • Check the device list in OvrC.

  • Check the client table on your router.

  • Use a network scanner (e.g. Fing) to scan the network. The Araknis switch manufacturer field displays SnapAV.

See the highlighted field in the Fing screenshot to the right for an example of an Araknis device being identified.

Accessing the switch using the default IP Address

If the switch is not given an IP address on the network or needs to be accessed while not connected to a network, you can configure your computer’s network connection to access the switch using the default IP address,, while connected to the MGMT port.
