INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
SECURE RACKING
If Secure Racked units are installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, they may require
further evaluation by Certification Agencies. The following items must be considered.
1.
The ambient within the rack may be greater than room ambient. Installation should be such
that the amount of air flow required for safe operation is not compromised. The maximum
temperature for the equipment in this environment is 45°C. Consideration should be given to
the maximum rated ambient.
2.
Installation should be such that a hazardous stability condition is not achieved due to
uneven loading.
INPUT SUPPLY
Check nameplate ratings to assure there is no overloading of supply circuits that could have an
effect on overcurrent protection and supply wiring.
GROUNDING
Reliable earthing of this equipment must be maintained. Particular attention should be given
to supply connections when connecting to power strips, rather than direct connections to the
branch circuit.

1. Introduction
Electronic equipment sometimes "locks-up," requiring a service call just to
flip the power switch to perform a simple reboot. The IPS-800/1600 Series
Internet Power Switches give you the ability to perform this function from
anywhere, just point your browser to the IPS’s IP address, enter the secure
password, and you’re just a click away from remote power On, Off or Reboot!
Intelligent Power Control
In addition to web browser access, the IPS can also communicate over any
TCP/IP network using standard Telnet, or out-of-band using an external
modem and basic VT100 type terminal emulation.
Security Features and Co-Location Features
To ensure security, web browser access requires the user to enter an assigned
user name and password. The IPS provides two levels of operational
passwords; the System Administrator Level, which allows access to all
configuration and switching functions, and the User Level, which only allows
access to assigned plugs and cannot be used to change unit configuration.
In addition to password security features, the IPS also includes an address
specific IP security mask, which can be employed to prevent unauthorized
network access to the IPS command mode.
Easy to Configure, Easy to Use
The IPS can be configured over the network, via modem, or locally via the IPS
COM port. Easy to use commands let you assign a location name, set system
parameters and view plug status. Outlets can be switched On, Off, or booted
using plug numbers or names.
Reliability and Support
The IPS is built in the USA and backed by a two year warranty. NetReach
products are installed in thousands of network sites world wide. Our
customers know they can depend on WTI for superior quality and reliability
for their most mission-critical operations.

IPS-800/IPS-1600 Series - User’s Guide
3.1.2.
Connect your PC to the IPS
The IPS can either be controlled by a local PC, that communicates with
the unit via cable, controlled via external modem, or controlled via TCP/IP
network. In order to switch plugs or select parameters, commands are issued
to the IPS via either the Network Port or RS232 COM Port. Note that it is not
necessary to connect to both the Network and COM Ports, and that the COM
Port can be connected to either a local PC or External Modem.
• Network Port: Connect your 10Base-T or 100Base-T network
interface to the IPS Network port. For more information, please refer to
Section 4.4.
• Local PC: Use the supplied null modem cable to connect your PC COM
port to the IPS COM (RS232) Port. For more information, please refer to
Section 4.3.1.
• External Modem: Use a standard AT to Modem cable to connect your
external modem to the IPS COM (RS232) Port. For more information,
please refer to Section 4.3.2.
Note that when the IPS is shipped from the factory, RS232 Port Parameters
are set as follows: 9600 bps, 8 Data Bits, One Stop Bit, No Parity. Although
the IPS allows these parameters to be easily redefined, for the purpose
of this Quick Start procedure, it is recommended that you configure your
communications program to accept these default parameters.
3.2. Communicating with the IPS
The IPS offers two separate user interfaces: the Web Browser Interface and the
Text Interface. The Web Browser interface allows you to contact the IPS via
a TCP/IP network, using a standard, JavaScript enabled web browser (such as
Internet Explorer.) The Text Interface consists of a series of ASCII text menus,
which may be accessed via TCP/IP network, Local PC or modem.
Note: The IPS features a default IP Address (192.168.168.168) and
a default Subnet Mask (255.255.255.0). This allows initial network
access to command mode without first setting up the unit’s network
parameters (providing that you are contacting the IPS from a node on
the same subnet.) When attempting to access the IPS from a node that
is not on the same subnet, please refer to the User’s Guide for further
configuration instructions.

a)
Web Browser Interface: Start your JavaScript enabled Web
Browser. Enter the IPS’s default IP address (192.168.168.168)
in your browser address bar and then press [Enter]. A password
prompt will be displayed. Since at this point, the user name and
password have not yet been defined, you can simply click OK
without keying in a user name or password. The Plug Status Screen
will be displayed as shown in Figure 3.1.
b)
Text Interface:
i.
Via Telnet: Telnet to the IPS’s default IP address
(192.168.168.168). The Plug Status Screen (Figure 3.2) should
be displayed.
ii.
Via Local PC: Start your communications program (e.g.,
Hyperterminal) and then press [Enter]. The Plug Status Screen
should be displayed as shown in Figure 3.2. The default
communications parameters for the COM Port are 9600 bps, No
Parity, 8 data bits, One stop bit.
iii. Via Modem: Use your communications program to dial the
number for the phone line which is connected to your external
modem. Note that in order to communicate with the unit via
modem, you must first access the command mode via Network
or Local PC, and use the Serial Parameters Menu to set the Port
Mode to "Modem" as described in Section 5.3.2.

4. Installation
This Section provides further details regarding installation of the IPS unit.
4.1. Power Supply Connection
Use the supplied power cords to connect the IPS unit to an appropriate power
supply. Note that the IPS’s Main Power switch must be "On" in order for the
unit to operate.
CAUTIONS:
• Before attempting to install this unit, please review the warnings
and cautions listed at the front of the user's guide.
• This device should only be operated with the type of power
source indicated on the instrument nameplate. If you are not
sure of the type of power service available, please contact your
local power company.
• Reliable earthing (grounding) of this unit must be maintained.
Particular attention should be given to supply connections when
connecting to power strips, rather than directly to the branch
circuit.
4.1.1.
Installing the Cable Keepers
The IPS includes cable keepers, which are designed to prevent the power
supply cables from being accidentally disconnected from the unit.
• IPS-1600 and IPS-1600-CE: Sixteen-plug units include pre-installed
cable keepers. When attaching the power supply cables to the unit,
first swing the cable keepers out of the way, then plug the power cables
securely into the power inputs. When the cables are in place, snap the
cable keepers over each plug to secure the cables to the unit.
• IPS-800 and IPS-800-CE: The cable keeper for eight-plug units must
be installed by the user. First make certain that both of the IPS's two
power cables are disconnected from your power supply. Next, loosen
(but do not remove) the retaining screws located adjacent to the power
inlets. Connect the power supply cables to the IPS power inlets, then slip
the cable keepers under each supply cable so the notches at the top of the
keeper line up with each cable, and the two slots on the bottom of the
keeper slide under the loosened retaining screws. Tighten the retaining
screws to secure the cable keeper to the unit, make certain that the cables
are secure, and then connect the cables to your power supply.
4-1
IPS-800/IPS-1600 Series - User’s Guide
4.2. Connection to Switched Outlets
Connect the power cord from your switched device to a switched AC Outlet
on the IPS unit. Note that when power is applied to the IPS, the Switched AC
Outlets will be switched "ON".
• IPS-800 and IPS-1600 (120 VAC Models): Units include two separate
power busses. Each bus can support a total of 15 Amps.
• IPS-800-CE and IPS-1600-CE (240 VAC Models): Units include two
separate power busses. Each bus can support a total of 10 Amps.
4.3. Serial COM / RS232 Port Connection
The COM Port is a male, RS232C DB9 connector, wired in a DTE
configuration. In the default state, the COM port is configured for 9600
bps, no parity, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit. The COM Port can be connected to
either an external modem or a local PC, but not both items at the same time.
Appendix A describes the COM Port interface.
4.3.1.
Connecting a Local PC
Use the supplied null modem cable to connect your PC COM port to the IPS
COM (RS232 Port.) Make certain that the Serial Port Mode is set to "Console"
as described in Section 5.3.1.
4.3.2.
Connecting an External Modem
When connecting directly to an external modem, use a standard AT to
Modem cable. Make certain that the modem is initialized at the same default
parameters as the IPS COM Port. Make certain that the IPS Serial Port Mode
is set to "Modem" as described in Section 5.3.1.
4.4. Connecting the Network Cable
The Network Port is an RJ45 Ethernet jack, for connection to a TCP/IP
network. Connect your 10Base-T cable to the Network Port. Note that the
IPS includes a default IP address (192.168.168.168) and a default subnet mask
(255.255.255.0.) When installing the IPS in a working network environment,
it is recommended to define network parameters as described in Section 5.3.4.
Note: The IPS features a 10Base-T Interface. When connecting to a
100Base-T interface, most router switches will autosense to determine
if the device is 100Base-T or 10Base-T, and then configure the network
interface accordingly. If your router switch does not autosense, the
network interface port must be manually set to 10Base-T.
This completes the IPS installation instructions. Please proceed to the next
Section for instructions regarding unit configuration.
4-2
5. Configuration
5.1. System Mode and User Mode
In order to restrict access to sensitive command functions, the IPS features two
operating modes; System Mode and User Mode.
• System Mode: Allows access to all configuration menus, switching
functions and status screens. The System Mode Status Screens show
On/Off conditions for all switched outlets, and lists all currently defined
system parameters.
• User Mode: Allows access to switching and reboot commands, but
does not allow access to configuration functions. Users may only issue
commands to, or view status of the plugs that are specifically allowed by
their password.
The IPS will display a password prompt when the unit is contacted via the
COM Port or Network Port. The password entered at this prompt determines
whether the unit will start-up in System Mode or User Mode. If the System
Password is entered, the System Mode will be active. If a Plug Password is
entered, the User Mode will be active. The System Password is defined via the
General Parameters menu (Section 5.3.1), and the Plug Passwords are defined
via the Plug Parameters Menus (Section 5.3.3.)
Notes:
• If you wish to restrict access to configuration menus, you must
define the System Password.
• If the System Password is not defined, the IPS will always start-up
in System Mode, allowing unprotected access to configuration and
switching functions.
• If the System Password is not defined, the Password Prompt will not
be displayed when you access the IPS via the Text Interface. The
prompt will always be displayed when the IPS is contacted via the
Web Browser Interface.
• When the IPS is contacted via Network, the password prompt will
also include a field for the user name. If you have not defined a user
name, then you may leave this field blank, and only the password
is required to gain access to the unit. The user name prompt is not
displayed when the unit is contacted via the Text Interface.

c)
Via Network: The IPS includes a default IP address
(192.168.168.168), which allows you to contact the unit from any
network node on the same subnet. When the IPS is installed in a
working network environment, it is recommended to redefine the
IP Address, Subnet Mask, and Gateway Address as described in
Section 5.3.3.
i.
Telnet to the IPS’s IP address. For example, if the IP address
is "192.168.168.168", then on a UNIX system, the Telnet
command would be:
$ telnet 192.168.168.168 [Enter]
ii.
If the Telnet connection is refused, this may mean that
either the IP Security feature has denied the connection (See
Section 5.3.4.1), or that the unit is operating on a 100Base-T
network that does not autosense for 10Base-T devices (see
Section 4.4.)
2.
Password: If the System Password has been defined, the unit will
display the Password Prompt. Key in either the System Password or
Plug Password, and press [Enter]. If the System Password has not been
defined, the prompt will not be displayed when the unit is accessed via the
Text Interface. Note that the Password feature is case sensitive.
3.
If a valid System Password or Plug Password is entered, the IPS will
display the Plug Status Screen shown in Figure 5.2, followed by the
"IPS>" Command Prompt.
Note: The Plug Status Screen will not display actual passwords.
Instead, the password column will read either "defined" or "undefined."

IPS-800/IPS-1600 Series - User’s Guide
The Plug Parameters Menu allows you to define the following parameters:
• Plug Name: (Up to 16 Characters, Default = undefined.)
Note: Plug Names cannot begin with a number, dash (-), underscore
character (_), forward slash character (/) or backslash (\) character,
and cannot include non printable characters, spaces, asterisks (*),
colons (:), the plus symbol (+) or quotation marks.
• Plug Password: When this password is entered at login, the user will be
able to issue commands to this plug, and any other plug that shares the
same password as this plug as described in Section 5.3.3.1. (Four to 16
Characters, Default = undefined.)
Note: Passwords cannot begin with the forward slash character (/)
or backslash (\) character, and cannot include non printable characters,
spaces, asterisks (*) or quotation marks.
• Boot/Seq. Delay: When more than one plug is switched On/Off or
a reboot cycle is initiated, the Boot/Sequence delay determines how
much time will elapse between switching operations, as described in
Section 5.3.3.2. (Default = 0.5 Second.)
• Power Up Default: Determines how this plug will react when the
Default command (/D) is invoked, or after power to the unit has been
interrupted and then restored. After the default command is invoked, or
power is restored, the IPS will automatically switch each plug On or Off
as specified by the Power-Up Default. (Default = On).
Note: If you have accessed command mode using the System
password, the Default command will apply to all switched plugs. If
you have accessed command mode using a plug password, then the
command will only be applied to plugs that share the same password
entered at login.
5.3.3.1. Plug Passwords and Co-Location Features
The Plug Passwords allow you to determine which plugs an individual user
will be permitted to control. When a plug password is entered at the login
prompt, the user will be able to issue switching and reboot commands for the
corresponding plug, and every other plug that shares this same password.
For example, if the password "switch" is defined for plugs 1, 2, and 3, then
a user who logs into command mode using the password "switch" will only
be allowed to issue commands to plugs 1, 2, and 3, but will not be allowed
to issue commands to the remaining plugs. Note that Plug Passwords do not
allow access to configuration menus, and users are only allowed to view the
status of plugs permitted by their password.

5.3.3.2. The Boot / Sequence Delay Period.
The Boot / Sequence Delay value will be applied differently for Reboot
operations as opposed to simple On/Off operations as described below:
1.
2.
Reboot Cycles:
a)
Single Plug: The Boot/Seq. Delay determines how long the plug
will remain Off before it is switched back On again.
b)
Several Plugs: The Boot/Seq. Delay determines how long the plug
will remain "Off", and also how long the IPS will pause before
proceeding to the next plug.
On/Off Switching: The Boot/Seq. Delay determines how long the IPS
will pause before proceeding to the next plug.
Examples: Assume that a user is only allowed access to plugs one through
four, and that the Boot / Sequence Delays for each plug have been set as
follows: Plug 1 = 1 Second, Plug 2 = 2 Seconds, Plug 3 = 5 Seconds,
Plug 4 = 1 Minute.
If the user applies an "On" command to all four plugs, the IPS will respond as

Figure 5.11: IP Security Menu - Text Interface
5.3.4.1. IP Security Feature
The IP Security feature can be used to restrict unauthorized IP addresses from
establishing a connection with the IPS. In the default state, the IPS accepts
incoming IP connections from all hosts. To configure the IP Security feature,
proceed as follows:
1.
2.
5-16
Access the IP Security Menu:
a)
Web Browser Interface: The IP Security feature is configured
using the fields at the bottom of the Network Parameters Menu as
shown in Figure 5.9.
b)
Text Interface: Go to the Network Parameters menu (/N), type 5
and press [Enter]. The IP Security menu will be displayed as shown
in Figure 5.11.
The IP Security menu lists five IP Security "masks" along with the
selected permit/deny action for each mask.
a)
Each Security Mask prompt defines a specific IP address or range of
addresses. Each Mask Action prompt defines the permit/deny action
for the corresponding mask.
b)
Masks are listed in order of ascending priority; Mask 1 has the
lowest priority, Mask 5 has the highest priority.
c)
Masks have a cumulative effect; high priority masks supersede the
effect of lower priority masks.
d)
Each IP Address consists of a series of four eight bit numbers. The
number 255 is used as a wild card.
Configuration
Example 1: Deny access to all hosts except 192.1.1.5:
Security Mask #1: 255.255.255.255
Security Mask #2: 192.1.1.5
Mask #1 Action: Deny
Mask #2 Action: Permit
Since 255 is a wild card, Mask #1 blocks all IP Addresses. Mask #2 then
specifically grants access to 192.1.1.5 only.
Example 2: Allow access only by addresses that begin with 192.
Security Mask #1: 255.255.255.255
Security Mask #2: 192.255.255.255
Mask #1 Action: Deny
Mask #2 Action: Permit
Since 255 is a wild card, Mask 1 blocks all IP addresses. Mask 2 then grants
access to all addresses that begin with 192.
Example 3: Allow access only by addresses that begin with 192, deny access
to 192.1.1.5.
Security Mask #1: 255.255.255.255
Security Mask #2: 192.255.255.255
Security Mask #3: 192.1.1.5
Mask #1 Action: Deny
Mask #2 Action: Permit
Mask #3 Action: Deny
Since 255 is a wild card, Mask 1 blocks all IP addresses. Mask 2 then grants
access to all addresses that begin with 192. Finally, Mask 3 specifically blocks
access by 192.1.1.5.
Note:
• Mask #5 has priority over the other four masks. If Mask #5 is set to
deny access by "255.255.255.255" (all wild cards), you will not be
able to access IPS Command Mode via network. Access will only
be allowed via a Local PC or external modem connected to the IPS
COM Port.
• When using the wild card address "255.255.255.255", make certain
that at least one higher priority mask permits access by your IP
address.

IPS-800/IPS-1600 Series - User’s Guide
5.4. Save Configuration Parameters
The IPS offers two methods for saving parameters; Saving to Memory, and
Saving to an ASCII File.
Saving parameters to memory ensures that your user-defined configuration
will remain intact if power to the IPS is temporarily interrupted. After the
configuration menus have been used to change parameters, the IPS will prompt
you to save parameters before exiting from command mode. At this point, the
IPS offers the options to Save parameters, continue without saving, or revert to
the previously saved parameters.
Saving Parameters to an ASCII file allows you to create a "backup" of your
currently defined configuration. As described in Section 7, this provides quick
recovery in the event that the unit is accidentally reset to default parameters,
and also allows you to copy parameters to other IPS units when several units
need to be configured with the same parameters.
Notes:
• After new Parameters have been applied, the IPS will display a
"Save" prompt. In the Web Browser Interface, this prompt appears
when you leave the configurations menus. In the Text Interface,
the "Save" prompt appears when you disconnect from the unit.
At this point, you have the option of saving new parameters to
memory, continuing without saving, or reverting to previously saved
parameters.
• If parameters have not been saved, and if power to the IPS is
interrupted, newly defined parameters will be lost. When power is
restored, the unit will then be configured with the previously saved
parameters.
5-20
6. Operation
As discussed in Section 5, the IPS offers two separate command interfaces;
the Web Browser Interface and the Text Interface. Note that Both interfaces
offer essentially the same command options and features, and that parameters
defined via the Web Interface will also apply when communicating via the Text
Interface (and vice versa.)
6.1. Operation via the Web Browser Interface
When using the Web Browser Interface, all switching commands are invoked
via the Plug Status Screen, which also displays the status of the IPS’s
switched outlets.
6.1.1.
The Plug Status Screen - Web Browser Interface
When you login to the IPS command mode using the Web Browser Interface,
the first screen that is displayed is the Plug Status Screen (or "Switch Panel".)
The Plug Status Screen (Figure 6.1) lists the current On/Off status of the IPS’s
Switched Outlets and provides a series of "radio buttons" which are used to
control On/Off/Boot switching of the outlets.
To invoke On/Off/Boot commands or view plug status via the Web Browser
Interface, proceed as follows:
1.
Access the IPS Command Mode as described in Section 5.2.1.
2.
When the Plug Status Screen (Figure 6.1) appears, note that the screen
includes a status field and switching and reboot controls for each of the
IPS’s Switched AC Outlets.
Notes:
• When switching and reboot operations are initiated, Boot/Sequence
Delay times will be applied as described in Section 5.3.3.2.
• Users who login to command mode using a Plug password, will
only be allowed to issue commands to the plugs allowed by that
password.

6.2. Operation via the Text Interface
When using the Text Interface, all switching functions are performed by
invoking simple, ASCII commands. ASCII commands are also used to display
status screens and to log out of command mode. The Text Interface includes
a Help Menu, which summarizes all available IPS commands. To display the
Text Interface Help Menu (Figure 6.3), type /H and press [Enter].
6.2.1.
The Plug Status Screen - Text Interface
When you login to the IPS command mode using the Text Interface, the first
screen displayed after login is the Plug Status Screen. The Plug Status Screen
(Figure 6.2) lists the current status of the IPS’s Switched AC Outlets and
displays the firmware version and currently defined Site I.D. Message.
Normally, the Plug Status Screen will also be redisplayed each time a
command is successfully executed. Note however, that if desired, the
Automated Mode (See Section 6.4) can be enabled to suppress the display of
the Plug Status Screen after each command.

Switching and Reboot Commands - Text Interface
These commands can be used to switch or reboot the IPS’s switched plugs,
and can also be used to set plugs to the user-defined Power-Up Default values.
Plugs may be specified by name or number.
Notes:
• Wait for the "IPS>" prompt to appear before entering commands.
The prompt will not reappear until the previous command is
complete.
• Commands are not case sensitive. All commands are invoked by
pressing [Enter].
• Users who login to command mode using a Plug password, will
only be allowed to issue commands to the plugs allowed by that
password.
• If command confirmation is enabled, the IPS will display the Status
Screen after commands are successfully completed.
• When switching and reboot operations are initiated, Boot/Sequence
Delay times will be applied as described in Section 5.3.3.2.
6-4
Operation
To Switch Plugs, or initiate a Boot Cycle, proceed as follows:
1.
Switch Plug(s) On: To power-on a plug, type /ON n and press [Enter].
Where "n" is the number or name of the desired plug.
For example:
/ON 1 or /ON ROUTER
2.
Switch Plug(s) Off: To power-off a plug, type /OFF n and press
[Enter]. Where "n" is the number or name of the desired plug. Note that
the "/OFF" command can also be entered as "/OF". For example:
/OFF 2 or /OF ROUTER
3.
Boot Plug(s): To initiate a Boot cycle, type /BOOT n and press [Enter].
Where "n" is a the number or name of the desired plug. Note that the
"/BOOT" command can also be entered as "/BO". For example:
/BOOT 1 or /BO ATMSWTCH
4.
Set Plugs to Power Up Defaults: Type /D and press [Enter]. Plugs
will be set to their default On/Off status, which is defined using the Plug
Parameters Menu as described in Section 5.3.3.
Notes:
• When you have accessed command mode using the System
Password, the Default command will be applied to all plugs.
• When you have accessed command mode using a Plug (User)
Password, the Default command will only be applied to the plugs
permitted by the password.
5.
Suppress Command Confirmation Prompt: To execute a Boot/On/Off
command without displaying the "Sure?" prompt, include the ",Y" option
at the end of the command line. For example:
/ON ROUTER,Y or /BOOT 2,Y
6-5
IPS-800/IPS-1600 Series - User’s Guide
6.2.3.
Applying Commands to Several Plugs Text Interface
As described below, switching and reboot commands can be applied to only
one Switched AC Outlet, or to an assortment of outlets.
Note: When switching and reboot operations are initiated, Boot/
Sequence Delay times will be applied as described in Section 5.3.3.2.
1.
Several Plugs: To apply a command to several plugs, enter the numbers
or names for the plugs, separated by a "plus sign" (+). For example to
switch plugs 1, 3, and 4 Off, enter the following:
/OFF 1+3+4 [Enter]
2.
Series of Plugs: To apply a command to a series of plugs, enter the
number for the plugs that mark the beginning and end of the series,
separated by a colon. For example, to switch plugs 1 through 3 On, enter
the following:
/ON 1:3 [Enter]
4.
All Plugs: To apply a command to all plugs, enter an asterisk in place of
the name or number. For example, to Boot all plugs, enter the following:
/BO * [Enter]
6.3. Logging Out of Command Mode
When you have finished communicating with the IPS, it is important to always
disconnect using either the "Log Out" button (Web Browser Interface) or /X
command (Text Interface), rather than simply closing your browser window or
communications program.
When you disconnect using the Log Out button or /X command, this ensures
that the IPS has completely exited from command mode, and is not waiting for
the inactivity timeout period to elapse before allowing additional connections.
6-6
Operation
6.4. The Automated Mode
The Automated Mode allows the IPS to execute switching and reboot
commands, without displaying menus or generating response messages.
Automated Mode is designed to allow the IPS to be controlled by a device
which can generate commands to control power switching functions without
human intervention.
When Automated Mode is enabled, the /ON, /OFF, /BOOT, /D and /X
commands are executed without a "Sure?" confirmation prompt and without
command response messages; the only reply to these commands is the "IPS>"
prompt, which is displayed when the command is complete.
Note that although Automated Mode can be enabled using either the Web
Browser Interface or Text Interface, Automated Mode is designed primarily
for users who wish to send ASCII commands to the IPS without operator
intervention, and therefore does not specifically apply to the Web Browser
Interface. When Automated Mode is enabled, the Web Browser Interface can
still be used to invoke On / Off / Boot commands.
Notes:
• When Automated Mode is enabled, all IPS password security
functions are disabled, and users are able to access System Level
command functions (including the configuration menus) and control
plugs without entering a password.
• If you need to enable the Automated Mode, but want to restrict
network access to IPS configuration menus, it is recommended
to enable and configure the IP Security Function as described in
Section 5.3.4.1.
To enable/disable Automated Mode, access the General Parameters menu
(see Section 5.3.1,) then set the "Automated Mode" option to "On". When
Automated Mode is enabled, IPS functions will change as follows:
1.
All Password Security Suppressed: When a user attempts to access
command mode, the password prompt will not be displayed at either the
COM / RS232 Port or the Network Port. Unless specifically restricted
by the IP Security Function, all users will be allowed to access both
switching and configuration functions, and all commands will be
immediately accepted without the requirement to enter a password.
2.
Status Screen Suppressed: The status screens will not be automatically
displayed after commands are successfully executed. Note however,
that the /S command can still be invoked to display the status screen as
needed.
6-7
IPS-800/IPS-1600 Series - User’s Guide
3.
"Sure?" Prompt Suppressed: All commands are executed without
prompting for user confirmation.
4.
Error Messages Suppressed: If the [Enter] key is pressed without
entering a command, the IPS will not respond with the "Invalid
Command" message. Note however, that an error message will still be
generated if commands are invoked using invalid formats or arguments.
All other status display and configuration commands will still function as
normal.
6.5. Manual Operation
In addition to the command driven functions available via the Web Browser
Interface and Text Interface, the IPS’s switched plugs can also be toggled On
and Off manually. To manually toggle all plugs On or Off, press the Default
Button, and hold it down for approximately three seconds.
If desired, the Default Button’s manual plug control ability can also be
disabled via the General Parameters menu as described in Section 5.3.1.
6-8
7. Saving and Restoring
Configuration Parameters
After the IPS has been properly configured, parameters can be downloaded
and saved as an ASCII text file on your local or remote PC. Later, if the
configuration is accidentally altered, the file with the saved parameters can be
uploaded to automatically reconfigure the unit without the need to manually
assign each parameter.
Saved parameters can also be uploaded to other IPS units. This allows rapid
set-up when several units will be configured with the same parameters.
The "Save Parameters" procedure can be performed from any terminal
emulation program (e.g. ProComm, Crosstalk, Hyperterminal, etc.), which
allows downloading of ASCII files.
Note: Although this function is only available via the Text Interface,
parameters that are defined via the Web Browser Interface will also be
sent to the ASCII file.
7.1. Sending Parameters to a File
1.
Start your communications program and access the IPS command mode
using the System Level Password.
2.
When the IPS command prompt appears, type /DL and press [Enter].
The IPS will prompt you to prepare your communications program. Set
up your communications program to receive an ASCII download, and
specify a name for the file that will receive the saved parameters
(e.g. IPS.PAR).
3.
When the communications program is ready to receive the file, return to
the IPS command mode, and press [Enter] to proceed.
4.
The IPS will send a series of ASCII command lines which specify the
currently selected IPS parameters.
7-1
IPS-800/IPS-1600 Series - User’s Guide
7.2. Restoring Saved Parameters
This Section describes the procedure for using your communications program
to send saved parameters to the IPS.
Note: Parameters saved to an ASCII file can only be restored via
the Text Interface. This procedure cannot be performed via the Web
Browser Interface.
1.
Start your communications program and access the IPS command mode
via the Text Interface as described in Section 5.2.2.
2.
If the Password Prompt is displayed, key in your System Level Password
and press [Enter].
3.
Configure your communications program to upload an ASCII text file.
4.
Upload the file with the saved parameters. If necessary, key in the file
name and directory path.
5.
When the upload is complete, make certain to terminate the
communications program’s upload mode.
Note:
• The current On/Off status of each IPS plug will not be saved or
restored.
• When the configuration file is sent to the IPS via telnet, the unit’s IP
Address, Subnet Mask, and Gateway Address will not be changed
until after you exit from command mode.
At this point, saved parameters should have been restored to the IPS unit.
Check the Plug Status Screen, General Parameters Menu, Plug Parameters
Menu and Network Parameters Menu to make certain that saved parameters
have been accurately restored.
7-2
8. Upgrading the IPS Firmware
When new, improved versions of the IPS firmware become available, the
"Upgrade Firmware" function can be used to update the unit. Updates can be
installed via the Console Port or Network Port.
Notes:
• The upgrade procedure can only be performed via the Text Interface.
• All other network ports will be disabled during the firmware
upgrade procedure.
• When the upgrade procedure is complete, all parameters will be set
to their default states. Therefore, it is recommended to save IPS
configuration parameters to an ASCII file (as described in Section 7)
before beginning this upgrade procedure.
1.
Obtain the update file. Firmware modifications can either be mailed to
the customer on a CDR, or downloaded from WTI. Place the upgrade
CDR in your disk drive or copy the file to your hard drive.
2.
Access the IPS command mode via the Text Interface. When the
password prompt is displayed, key in the System Level Password.
3.
When the command prompt appears, type /U and press [Enter]. The
IPS will display a screen which offers the following options:
• 1. Upgrade Sector 0
• 2. Upgrade Sectors 1 - 4
• 3. Upgrade Sectors 5 - 7
• 4. Abort Upgrade
Note: Instructions regarding the proper Sector option will be supplied
when upgrades become available.
Select the Sector Option indicated for the upgrade and press [Enter], or
type 4 [Enter] to abort the upgrade procedure.
8-1
IPS-800/IPS-1600 Series - User’s Guide
4.
Set your communication program for ASCII Mode, then use the
program’s “Send File” function to transfer the upgrade file to the IPS.
Select ASCII format, then specify the filename and directory location
where the firmware upgrade file resides.
5.
If the upload is successful, the IPS will load the upgrade firmware into
memory, and then reboot itself.
Note: If you are performing the upgrade procedure via the Network
Port, the IPS will break the network connection when the system is
reinitialized. However, the IPS will retain the current settings for the
IP Address, the Telnet Port Number, Web Server Port Number and
Console Port Mode and Baud Rate.
6.
Incomplete Upload: If the upload is interrupted, times-out, or if the
update file becomes corrupted during transfer, the IPS will display a
screen which asks for confirmation before proceeding. To proceed, type 1
and press [Enter], then return to Step 4 above to retry the upload, or press
[Esc] to reboot the IPS unit.

Recovery Mode: In the rare event that the IPS operating system becomes
corrupted during installation, front panel indicators will blink, and the
unit will automatically switch to Recovery Mode. If the unit switches to
Recovery Mode, first access the IPS command mode to reset the Console
Port to 9600 bps, Eight Data Bits, No Parity, One Stop Bit, and then
return to step 3 above and repeat the upload procedure.
When firmware upgrades are available, WTI will provide the necessary files
via download or mailed CDROM. At that time, an updated Users Guide or
addendum will also be available.
