The server Menu is typically used to change network and video settings, update server software, and reset the system to the default settings.  Many of the same options are available on the web server under Settings.  Most importantly, it is necessary to use the LCD or video out menu to determine what IP address the server has been assigned.  To display the Menu, press the MENU button on the ReQuest 64 button remote.

A static IP address can also be assigned to the server.
