My wireless network uses Static IP Addresses. I need to manually assign the IP Address to the MobiWIC Terminal. How is this done?
In most cases an IP Address is automatically assigned to the MobiWIC terminal while connecting. In some environments a specific IP Address has to be manually added before MobiWIC can make a connection. Click here to see how to manually assign an IP Address for an ITWell terminal. Click here for an STM7700 terminal.
How are Claimfiles created?
Claimfiles are created in the BackOffice after a Terminal has sent Transactions through a sync. The Backoffice then sends the Claimfile to the WSA during its sync with the WSA.

I get the following error when I try to sync MobiWIC: "The remote name could not be resolved." What should I do?
Check the following:
- Verify Wi-Fi is connected.
- Verify Sync Parameters in MobiWIC app:
- Hostname: mobiwic.solisystems.com
- Port: 8000
- Hostname: mobiwic.solisystems.com
- Verify correct Username and Password.
- Verify "Username" is selected when entering a Username to sync, or "Cashier" is selected when entering a Cashier # to sync.
Is Wi-Fi required all the time?
The MobiWIC terminal would need to connect to Wi-Fi at minimum once per day to synchronize with the state. The terminal does not need to maintain a Wi-Fi connection to function, and a Wi-Fi connection is not required to perform live transactions.
Should we keep the terminal on the charger/cradle throughout the day?
You may keep your MobiWIC terminal on the charger throughout the day if you wish. It is not possible to overcharge your device, so you may keep it connected to the power supply. Through testing we have found that we got about 7 hours of standby time after a full charge, with the screen left on with no power supply. (Not being used)
