Step 1 -  Logon to RDAdmin and select "Manage Hosts".

Step 2 - Select the "Host" you wish to modify, and click "Edit".

Step 3 - Click the "RDAirPlay" button.

Step 4 - Select the "Configure Now & Next Parameters" button.

Step 5- Enter the IP address for your Streaming transmitter and the port 12345. In the UDP String field, enter the following:

Step 6 - Click "OK" on the next three screens until you have returned to the "Rivendell Workstation List" screen, and click "Close".

Step 7 - Select "Manage Groups".

Step 8 - Select each group that plays on air, select "Edit".

Note: Futuri's server filters out non-music groups, however, they require these groups for proper timing of the data. You should bypass macros and other command groups that are not played on air.

Step 9 - Place an "X" in the Transmit Now & Next data field and click "OK". (This should be completed for each group that is played on the air.)

Step 10 - Click "Close" to complete the process and close RDAdmin.
