Step 6. - Load xBit in your localhost.

Open your browser (we recommend Chrome). Browse to the IP address and port number (i.e. provided by the install.

You will no longer need to reference the xBit DCM Docker File email sent from The initial email (where you received this document) contains the xBit DCM activation license key and .teelkey file. You will need them at this point.
