Providing your network is able to assign devices IP addresses via DHCP and DNS is configured correctly, you will be able to connect to the Icy Box administration web page by visiting http://icybox. Should this not work, the manual provides instructions on how to configure the Icy Box to work with your network. You will also find a utility for detecting the Icy Box on the included CD.
Once you have logged in to the administration site, the first thing to do is format your hard disk (if it doesn't already contain data). The Icy Box is able to read FAT32, EXT2 and EXT3 file systems but unfortunately not NTFS or some Linux-Based file system such as Reiserfs or XFS. If your hard disk is already formatted in an unsupported filesystem, the Icy Box will fail to power on as I found out first hand when trying to use it with an XFS formatted disk.
