The Beacon tab shows you information about the JNIORs that were found.  The Beacon technology uses UDP over port 4444.  A UDP broadcast is used when discovering JNIORs on the network.  UDP broadcasts are usually blocked by routers therefore restricting the UDP broadcast to the local segment of the network.

Right click for options

Right-clicking presents you with actions that can be taken for the selected JNIOR.

  • Identify – This will flash the amber status LED on the selected JNIOR for a few seconds.
