Qastor Move setup information for Qastor version 2.50.2016.03.04.1 onward:
Possible hardware scenarios:
1 Qastor PC outside a Wifi network
A network needs to be set up to connect to any other device using Wifi.
Hosted network: Can be set up using Windows 7 or higher OS.
Before trying to enable this, check if the Qastor machine supports "Hosted Networks" in a CMD window. Enter: netsh wlan show drivers
If 'Hosted network supported: Yes' then you can proceed setting up a hosted network this way, otherwise other network hardware is required which does support this feature.
- Type: netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=test key=12345678 (test = name of your network and key = password)
- Type: netsh wlan start hostednetwork
- This will create a Wifi network for other devices to connect to.
- Make sure a connection is established on your mobile device to the above created network.
Third-party software utilities like Connectify,Virtual Router or OSTotoHotspot etc. will provide the same functionality but with more control over settings.
- Start up Qastor
- Select from the View menu QastorMove QR-Code. An option is available to automatically display the QR-code at startup.
You can use any QR scanner app from the device you want to use as a portable device or type in the URL for Qastor Move in a web browser:address of your Wifi card:7834/static/qastor_move/index.html
Your created Microsoft virtual Hosted Network Virtual Adapter settings can be found in: Network and Sharing Center > Adapter Settings.
2 Qastor PC using an Ad Hoc connection (Ad Navigation ADX series)
Ad Hoc network: Not recommended if other options are available as it's not easy to set up from Windows 8 onward and Android devices do not support Ad Hoc networks natively.
See Qastor Knowledge Base article: .
3 Qastor PC part of routed network (Access Point/DHCP server)

Refer to the specific equipment manual for more information about how to make a connection.
