2.2 - INSTALLATION
For safety reasons and to prevent component damage, do not apply power to
the AX3000 before connecting or disconnecting any cable. Do not plug in the
AX3000 power cord until all other connectors have been plugged in.
Make sure the AX3000 and monitor power switches are in the OFF (0) position
before connecting cables to the back panel.
2.2.1 - Monitor and keyboard
Plug in the VGA monitor cable, the AT-compatible keyboard cable and the
optional mouse cable to the dedicated connectors on the terminal back panel:

This chapter describes the quick set-up procedure for the TCP/IP Platine
Terminal.
The following command sequence is used to enter the AX3000 Set-Up:
All the AX3000 set-up parameters (network environment, session settings and
auxiliary port settings) can be adjusted through this set-up.
For more information, refer to the guide: TCP/IP AX3000 - User's Manual.
But, for a fast and reliable installation, the AX3000 provides a quick set-up
function. This quick set-up function is dedicated to a typical environment:
- only one host,
- an optional router,
- all the virtual terminals have the same settings,
- a lpd or a Prt5250 printer is available.
To enter the quick set-up, select [Configuration]→[Quick Set-up] and press
<CR>. A warning message is displayed, press <CR> to continue.

Quick Installation
The quick set-up dialog box is displayed:
Note: this box is automatically called when the AX3000 is powered up for the
first time.
Quick set-up parameters:
- Keyboard: keyboard nationality.
- Number of sessions: maximum number of sessions. These sessions
are automatically associated with the host described above.
- Configuration: virtual terminal settings. This choice is selected from a
list.
- Enable DHCP: two possible values:
- yes: the DHCP protocol is run when the set-up is exited. The
DHCP function is automatically set to get both the AX3000 IP
address and other DHCP options (netmask, default router, etc).
- no: parameters are manually entered (in addition, AX3000 Name
(FQDN) is not accessible).
- AX3000 IP address: it must be entered if DHCP is disabled.
- Default router: optional router IP address.
- 1st DNS Server IP Address: optional DNS server IP address
- AX3000 Name (FQDN): this optional parameter (see appendix A.5)
allows an AX3000 to be identified by this name if both a DHCP server
and a Dynamic DNS server are available.
- Host Name: if the IP address of a host is not given, this name will be
resolved by DNS (if a DNS server is given).

Problem Solving
5 - PROBLEM SOLVING
This chapter describes some of the problems, that may occur during installation
of the AX3000 Models 65B, and offers possible solutions.
Safety Warning! Under no circumstances should you attempt
to fix a Platine problem by opening the terminal case. High
voltages may be present even when the terminal is switched
off. Only qualified technicians should open the AX3000 case.
9 - THE VGA MONITOR VERTICAL SYNC IS LOST
Care must be taken with the VGA monitor. The default VGA frequency used by
the AX3000 is 72 Hertz. If the VGA monitor does not support this frequency, the
vertical sync will be lost. To fix this problem, either use a more modern monitor
or modify the AX3000 VGA frequency:
9 - GREEN FRONT INDICATOR DOESN'T LIGHT, OR NO BEEP WHEN
YOU PRESS POWER SWITCH
Check there is power at the wall outlet and power cord connections.
9 - CONTINUOUS TONE SOUNDS AFTER THE TERMINAL HAS BEEN
SWITCHED ON
This alarm indicates a hardware failure. Report the problem to your service
representative.
16
Installation Guide - Models 65B
Problem Solving
9 - AFTER THE TERMINAL HAS BEEN SWITCHED ON, THE MESSAGES
'NO ETHERNET BOARD PRESENT' AND 'CANNOT ATTACH
ETHERNET BOARD' APPEAR
This message indicates a hardware failure. Report the problem to your service
representative.
9 - A DOUBLE-BEEP SOUNDS
After switching on the terminal, a double beep may sound, a few seconds after
the normal first beep.
This signal indicates that keyboard initialization has failed. Check the keyboard
connection to the terminal back panel.
It is possible for the keyboard to function correctly, despite this double-beep
signal. As a quick test of keyboard operation, enter set-up mode by pressing the
<Ctrl><Alt><Esc> keys simultaneously. If set-up mode is working, you can
ignore the double beep signal and use the terminal normally.
9 - ETHERNET CONNECTION INDICATOR DOES NOT LIGHT
This indicator is the green LED located next to the network connector on the
terminal back panel.
Failure to light when the terminal is switched on may be due to any of the
following:
- the Ethernet cable is disconnected at the far end,
- the device (host or hub), to which the network cable is connected, is not
switched on,
- there is a fault on the Ethernet cable or the cable is wired with incorrect
pin assignments.
Installation Guide - Models 65B
17
Problem Solving
9 - NO LOGIN WHEN THE 'CONNECTING...' MESSAGE IS DISPLAYED
Check the Ethernet cables are correctly connected and networked devices
(hubs or servers) are switched on.
No connection (and no login) can also be due to a wrong terminal setting during
the TCP/IP set-up (for example a wrong IP address).
9 - INCORRECT APPEARANCE OF SOFTWARE DISPLAYED ON THE
AX3000
Check the values of parameters set using Terminal Set-Up. Check that the
correct terminal emulation has been chosen.
Check that the TERM environment variable (for the current UNIX shell)
corresponds to the emulation selected for the terminal (in AX3000 Set-Up).
9 - THE CONNECTED PRINTER DOES NOT WORK
Check that the cable pin assignment is correct and test the printer in local mode
by selecting the [TEST] button within the auxiliary port dialog box.
