The SecureLink supports a connection to the network via Ethernet or Wi-Fi. Based on the option to be configured, please follow the detailed instructions on setting up the SecureLink.

Required Equipment:
• Router
• Ethernet Cable (required for setup)
• SecureLink Device
• SecureLink Power Supply

Basic SecureLink Setup:
Step 1: Connect Ethernet cable to SecureLink and router, plug in SecureLink power.
Step 2: Open a web browser and go to http://SL<Serial Number> Ex: http://SLB1116123456 (The serial number is prefixed with ‘SL’).
Note: By default, SecureLink units will use Port 5660 in the URL. Use http://SL<Serial Number>:5660 Ex: http://SLB1116123456:5660.

(The Serial Number is located on the bottom label of the SecureLink device.)

Modify Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS)

Step 2f: Warning: Do not change the value “*” in the CORS/CORS Setting(s) textbox unless you have already setup a CORS domain, since once you change the value in this textbox, only changes or requests from the CORS domain will be recognized and any other requests to change or communicate with the SecureLink Appliance will be denied. Once you commit a CORS change by clicking on the “Save Changes” button, you cannot simply use your browser to undo this change by setting the textbox back to “*” unless the request comes from the CORS domain you entered. To allow one or more specific CORS domains to communicate with the SecureLink Appliance, provide one or more comma separated CORS domain(s) (i.e., https://www.test.com:443) and then click on the “Save Changes” button.

SecureLink Troubleshooting

(Please go through the following steps prior to contacting support)

• Does your computer have internet access?

-Is the red/blue light active on the front of the SecureLink device?

–If not, check the power cable.

• If plugged into Ethernet, are there any activity lights?  (Yellow for connection, green for activity.)

-If you do not have both, check both ends of the Ethernet cable.  It should be plugged into both the SecureLink appliance and your router.

• Does device appear in web browser when navigating to SecureLink<SN>?

-If you see the SecureLink setup page or are prompted for a password, your device is working normally and you will need to contact your bank for support.

• Unplug power from unit for 30 seconds, then plug back in.

-If you are still unable to successfully navigate to SecureLink<SN>, contact Digital Check for support.

If you need additional support, please verify that you have normal and functioning Internet access before you contact technical support.

If you are still unable to resolve your issue, please contact Digital Check at support@digitalcheck.com or (847) 446-2285.
