5.1 Installation and Login
After the installation is launched, the installation program will scan your PC for another 2N® LiftIP Service Tool version and ask you to uninstall the currently available version if identical with the new one. Use the system control panel Add or Remove programs to uninstall the existing product version for reinstallation or reconfiguration. If the versions are not identical, the original version will be uninstalled and a new application version will be installed. Then you will also be asked whether the configuration files should be retained or the application with an empty database should be installed.
Now the 2N® LiftIP Service Tool Setup Wizard has been launched. Follow the wizard instructions. Select the 2N® LiftIP Service Tool installation location: C:\Program Files (x86)\2N TELEKOMUNIKACE\2N LiftIP\ is used by default. Now the application will ask you to enable transmission of system data and software use surveys to help the 2N TELEKOMUNIKACE a.s. company improve the software quality, availability and performance. No confidential data shall be sent. You can participate in this effort voluntarily and cancel sending statistic data any time. Confirm or decline this cooperation and click Next to continue.
Now the wizard is ready to install the 2N® LiftIP Service Tool. Confirm the user account administration notification to the Windows system if necessary. Another Start item and a desktop shortcut icon will be added automatically.
Alternatively, use the command line for installation: select the installer file and define the manner and location parameters. See below for command explanation.

Icon of 2N® LiftIP Service Tool
After the application launch, the splashscreen gets displayed to inform you of the application manufacturer and current version. After the launch, you will see the basic screen and Configuration / Parameters menu. Here an offline table of parameters can be prepared for you to export the data. Click Connect device to get connected to the CU and move to the Connect to device menu. A login window will be displayed where you enter the IP address if available. At the same time, set the communication port if changed and enter the valid password. Click Connect to get connected to
2N® LiftIP and read the configuration. Select Remember password to save the password to be able to establish immediate connection to the device whenever you open the application. To use the 2N® LiftIP Service Tool for multiple unit administration, click on extended settings. The Connection list will be displayed where you can create and name connections. In this case, do not use the default connection for connecting of new and unknown units. Create new records into the structure for permanent connections.
When you connect a new 2N® LiftIP to the network and do not know its IP address, use a network scanner. The scanner sends a request to the network and connected unit through routed networks. The response is displayed in a table. Double click the respective table row to get connected to the device. The device offers you to check the access data for match. All the found objects are displayed in the table. The new, unlisted ones are marked with a green plus.
Click with the right mouse button to display more options. Click Connect to connect to the selected unit. The configuration option helps you set the network parameters and access password for the selected unit via a proprietary protocol. The next option allows you to add a device to the list as a new connection. And the last item refreshes the table, i.e. sends a new request to the network to detect the currently connected units.
- The list of available COM ports only displays the ports to which the
2N® LiftIP programming add-on is connected.
