How to Install and Run a Simple Test on the Wireless Endpoint App

The purpose of this article is to help you get started with the 'Wireless Endpoint' app easily and efficiently and run your first test!

The  app is a very convenient and useful tool which helps the user test a wireless device or a range of devices and compare their performances. In this article we will create a simple test example that sends traffic from a 'server' to a device connected to WIFI. 

We will cover  ⇒ 

                                  1) Downloading the app and connecting your device(s) to the ByteBlower server

                                  2) Creating and connecting ports

                                  3) Setting up test parameters

                                  4) Running the test

                                  5) Troubleshooting

 

 ⇒    Let's go!

 

Step 1 - Setting Up the Wireless Endpoint App

 

1.1 Downloading the App

 

Go to https://setup.byteblower.com/wirelessendpoints.html and scroll down to the relevant operating system for your device(s).

You will see a list of options to download the wireless endpoint app. These are either from an app store or direct downloads. 

 

App Store Downloads

  • If you are using a mobile Android device → Click on 'Google Play'   → Click 'Install'          
  • If you are using a mobile IOS device → Click on the 'App Store'     → Click 'Install'

  

Direct Downloads

  

  • If you are using a Windows PC or a Mac → Click on     

  • If you are using Linux → Follow the appropriate instructions in the Linux section (either Debian/Ubuntu or Fedora)

                                                            

        

          ⇒  Download the app to your device

 

1.2 Connect the App to the ByteBlower GUI

 

Once you have successfully downloaded the wireless endpoint app, you will see the meeting point software (see below). 

 

Here you have two choices ⇒

 

                                                1) Enter the IPv4 address of your ByteBlower server.

                                                2) Enter the name of your server if it has a fully qualified domain name (FQDN).

 

                         

 

A laptop with Windows 10 is the device under test (DUT) in this demonstration.
