Do you have WiFi or USB connection to your device?

Local WiFI (you must know your local IP and type that in your browser). The blue ring show my local IP - your can be different. The red show your ID

With GCC and USB (or TCP/IP) connection. Yo u will find your GHL id in the yellow field

I’m trying to set it up on my iPhone GHL Connect app. This is my home screen

And when I press “Add device” my next screen options look like this

Nothing like the tutorial. What am I missing/doing wrong?

I have not done this with the Iphone app - you have local access and you need to add this computers to my ghl in order to get internet access.

Easiest way to do that is with help of GCC and a PC. Do you have access to a PC and have you install the GCC?

Yes I have pc.
and I’ve installed gcc as well. But Unwillingly I’ve changed some of the settings and I can’t connect my P4 to gcc. For this reason I’m using GHL Connect. Also with my phone I don’t have to use usb cables :)

Try to connect with the USB cable. Start GCC and go to administration. Use the device manager (red) in order to chose the COM port you should use (blue)

Or use your app and look up which local ip addresses for your different devices

Configure like this (your actual local IP address in the red marking

If you succeed to connect to your devices in one of these ways - pleas comeback and I will try to guide you further

Hey all ive had constant issues with connecting to the wifi on my GHL Doser 2.1, its very unreliable. when i ping the IP i get 0 network dropouts but when i access via the iphone app it sometimes loads sometimes doesnt, i have tried both myghl and if i connect via local IP i still have issues, USB seems to work ok but who wants to have to connect a USB cable every they want to check something.

heres my setup

KH Director fimrware v1.0
Doser 2.1 firmware 1.36 wifi firmware 4.02.11T.ghl
Doser 2.1 slave firmware 1.30 (keeps crashing if i try to update)

Any ideas, maybe i need a wifi firmware update also?

Can you run the update (that is crashing) via USB connection?

Hey, I just bought a used doser 2.1 and can’t seem to get it connected:
1. I tried looking for the hotspot, but there’s none.
2. I tried setting it up through GHL Control Center by using a USB-C ( 2019 MAC pro running boot camp windows 10) to USB and it doesn’t seem to pick up the connection from the doser. I also tried two new cables and still no luck. I also updated the usb drive from the program files and still doesn’t recognize the unit. Now could the issue be I’m using a usb-c port ? Does both ends of the connection needs to be a regular USB cable? Thanks, looking forward to your responses.
