I am planning on deploying more RV player boxes & displays on our university network.  We currently only have 2 deployed (pilot project.)  My network admin has asked me whether the boxes can use private IP addresses or do they need to be public?  Thanks.

Hi there,

It doesn't matter to Rise if you use public or private IP addresses.  The player software that is installed on the media player generates a unique display ID that our platform uses to identify and assign content to displays.

You may want to make sure you review our network requirements here as part of the set up: https://help.risevision.com/user/advanced/display/network-requirements
