Once the SST has been switched on the first step you will need to take is to rename the SST.

Things to remember when naming the SST.

  1. When naming the SST you will need to use the name in the following format: Always use Capital letters, add no spaces or special characters - for example your first SST will be called SST1 and the second SST will be called SST2.
  2. The SST's should be named from left to right so the first SST to your left will be SST1 and the next SST will be SST2. You
  3. Always name the SST's in sequence starting at 1 then 2 then 3 and so on.

To name the SST's you will need to do the following:

Step 1: Connect to the SST via Anydesk or connect a keyboard to the SST. (How do I connect to the SST at the Store?)

Step 2: Access the SST's Ubuntu Home Screen by pressing ALT+F4.

Step 3: Once you are on the Home Screen Click the settings button in the top right corner of the screen.

Step 4: Click on the user name SST, and then from the drop-down options click on Account Settings.

Step 5: Change the User Name to SST1. (For the next SST you will do the same but the name will be SST2). You will also need to make sure that Automatic Login is switched ON.

Step 6: You will now need to select About on the left-hand side and also change the SST Name to match the User Name.

Once you have changed the name you can now open the web browser and run the SST interface.

To access the SST Interface settings, you will either need to connect a keyboard to the SST or connect to the SST via Anydesk.

To access the settings page on the keyboard, hold Shift and press *** (Star 3 times)

It is very important to note that each port will represent a "brand" so only add one port for a single standalone store, and one port for each brand in a combo store.


Single Stand Alone store 

One Brand = One Port - Port number 4000

Combo store

Two Brands = Two Port numbers 4000, 4001

Three Brands = Three Port numbers 4000, 4001, 4002

Configure: Editing the instance.
