Featured on this page are several guides for setting up software packages on groov EPIC using Secure Shell (SSH) access. Find out more about SSH access on the main SSH developer page.

NOTE: Setting up your groov EPIC using Secure Shell access is only for advanced developers who are familiar with both Linux shell commands and troubleshooting via the command line. Once you enable Secure Shell access, you are on your own and will have to solve any issues that arise through your own knowledge and online research. Opto 22 product support is limited to helping you reset the groov EPIC processor to factory defaults; our Product Support engineers cannot help you with programming, usage, or troubleshooting.

CAUTION: Before updating groov EPIC firmware, be sure you back up any files or applications you have created, including files you import and download, as they will be deleted during the update. In addition, be aware that when you update EPIC firmware, your software package installation and setup will not be restored. You will need to repeat the steps in these guides after you have updated the firmware.
