Before we have CoreStation Setup Manager, you had to connect all devices from CoreStation to all Slave devices with BioStar 2 to check the installation is correct or not. Even though the installation size is huge, there was an exception.

    But from now, you can check your centralized system is correctly installed or not without Internet connection via CoreStation Setup Manager.
