Using Kobas EPoS on iPads or iPad Minis is a great way to quickly and inexpensively increase your number of till points while adding greater flexibility for till location. Setting up your device is straightforward and normally you won’t even need to speak to our support team.
To start, connect the iPad to your wireless network and press the ‘i’ bubble at the right hand side:
Under the section marked ‘IP ADDRESS’ select the ‘Static’ tab. This is where you may need to chat to our support team as it’s important you get the correct values for each of these fields. Each till/iPad must have a unique IP Address. You can see the last part of the IP Address given to current tills by looking at the text labelled “Till” at the bottom right of the PIN entry box.
Once you know the highest value already assigned, you are able to simple increment this by 1 and use this for the new iPad. A typical KOBAS installation uses the following values, though in some circumstances they maybe different:
IP Address: 192.168.1.x (where x is the value created by incrementing the highest number of your current tills by 1)
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
You need to ensure the till is set up for the venue in Kobas Cloud, so go to Administration > Venues and select the venue you are setting the iPad up for. Select the ‘Tills’ tab, and click ‘New Till’.
Set the relevant settings for how you want the iPad to behave and choose ‘Apple iPad’ from the ‘Till Type’ drop down. Enter the same IP Address that you set on the iPad in step 2 into the ‘IP Address’ field, then make sure to save.
From your iPad, tap here to download the KOBAS App and then tap “Install” on the dialog that pops up.
32 bit Application for Legacy iOS Devices
Some older iPads (e.g. first generation iPad Mini) are 32 bit devices, and so may no longer be compatible with the newer version of our application. Such devices will have other limitations, and will have a maximum iOS version of 9.3.5. While we don’t recommend using this platform, our legacy iOS application is available here.
You must then establish trust for the Kobas app.
Tap Settings > General > Profiles. Tap the “Kobas Technologies Ltd” profile under then “Enterprise App” heading. Tap “Trust Kobas Technologies Ltd” and you will then be prompted to confirm your choice. Tap “Verify App”.
Go to Settings > General > Device Management > Kobas Technologies Ltd > Trust “Kobas Technologies Ltd”
That’s it, you successfully turned your iPad into a fully functioning till in a few moments. You’ll see a new icon on your iPad desktop, which you can move around as you wish.
If you encounter any problems during this set-up, please contact our support team.
