Launch a mobile project on the device by either using a barcode scanner app, or type the launch link into a browser on the device.

Tip

Since the mobile device has network access to the Ignition Gateway, the browser on the device can navigate to the Gateway Webpage directly. This way the project can be launched by clicking on the link from the device.
