1. Introduction
Electronic equipment sometimes "locks-up," requiring a service call
just to flip the power switch to perform a simple reboot. The IPS-15
Internet Power Switch gives you the ability to perform this function
from anywhere, just point your browser to the IPS's IP address, enter
the secure user name and 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.
Expandable
The Main IPS unit can be linked to four additional low cost satellite
units for a total of five individually controlled outlets. If Satellite
Units are addressed in a gang configuration (multiple units assigned
to each address), then up to 16 Satellite Units can be linked together.
Flexible mounting options are also available. A Zero U rack bracket
lets you mount the IPS on the outside of a standard 19 inch rack rail.
A 1U rack tray allows mounting one main unit and two satellite units
in a 19 inch rack.
Security Features
To assure 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 switching of assigned plugs.

Easy to Configure, Easy to Use
The IPS can be configured over the network, via modem, or locally
via the IPS console 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.

3.2. Communicating with the IPS-15
Note that the IPS offers two different user interfaces: a Web Browser
Interface and a 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 or
Netscape Navigator.) The Text Interface consists of a series of
ASCII text menus, which may be accessed via TCP/IP network, dialup modem, or local PC. Both Interfaces are discussed further in the
sections that follow.
3.2.1.
The Web Browser Interface
When communicating with the IPS-15 via web browser, switch
functions and status screens are accessed by clicking the appropriate
button(s) on the browser screen. This section briefly describes the
procedure for contacting the IPS unit via Web Browser, and
selecting items from the web interface menus.
Notes:
· In order to use a web browser to communicate with
·
3-4
the IPS-15, the IPS-15 Master Unit must be connected
to your network, and the PC being used to control the
IPS must have a TCP/IP network connection and a
JavaScript enabled web browser.
The IPS includes a default IP Address and Subnet
Mask. This allows initial contact with the unit via
network without first defining an IP address
(providing you are contacting the IPS from another
node on the same subnet.) When installing the IPS in
a working network environment, it is recommended to
define network parameters as described in
Section 5.3.3.
1.
Web Browser Access: Start your JavaScript enabled Web
Browser. Enter the IPS-15's default IP address
(http://192.168.168.168) in your web browser's address bar
and then press [Enter].
2.
Password Prompt: When the IPS-15 is accessed via the Web
Browser Interface, the Password Prompt will always be
displayed. If the User Name and/or System Password have
not yet been defined, click "OK" without keying in a user
name or password. If the User Name and/or System Password
have already been defined, key in the user name and system
password and then click "OK". The IPS Plug Status Screen

Log Out: When you have finished exploring the IPS-15's
Web Interface, click on the "Log Out" button to terminate
your connection to the IPS-15.
Note: When you have finished communicating with
the IPS-15 unit, it is important to always log off rather
than simply closing your Telnet or communications
program. When you log off using either the "Log Off"
button in the Web Interface, or the /X command in the
Text Interface, this ensures that the IPS-15 has
completely exited from command mode, and is not
waiting for the inactivity timeout to elapse before
allowing additional connections.
This completes the introductory overview of the IPS-15 Web
Interface. If you wish to see the Text Interface, please proceed to
the next section, or refer to Sections 4 and 5 for complete
installation and configuration procedures.
3.2.2.
The Text Interface
This section provides a brief description of the IPS-15's Text
Interface. The Text Interface is a series of simple, ASCII menus,
that are used to invoke commands and select configuration
parameters. The Text Interface can be used when the unit is
contacted via Telnet, modem or Local PC.
Notes:
· In order to contact the IPS-15 via modem, you must
·
·
3-6
connect an external modem to the IPS-15 Master
Unit's Console Port and attach a phone line to the
external modem. Please refer to Section 4.3.2 for
further instructions regarding external modems.
The Console Port can be connected to either a Local
PC or an external modem, but not both at the same
time.
In order to access the IPS-15 Text Menus, your PC

4. Installation
This section provides further details regarding the connections that
are made in the process of installing the IPS-15. For a brief
description of the overall installation procedure, and a connections
diagram, please refer to Section 3.
4.1. Power Supply Connection
Use the supplied power cord to connect the IPS-15 Master Unit to an
appropriate power supply. The Master Power Switch on the IPS
back panel must be "On" in order for the IPS to operate. Note that if
your installation will include optional IPS Satellite Units, then this
procedure should be repeated for each Satellite Unit in the chain.
CAUTIONS:
•
•
•
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.
Check nameplate ratings to ensure that there is no
overloading of supply circuits that could have an
effect on overcurrent protection and supply wiring.
4.2. Connection to Switched Outlets
Connect the power cord from the Switched Device to the Switched
AC Outlet on the IPS Master Unit's back panel. When the unit is
powered On, the Switched AC Outlet will be switched "ON" (this
also applies to the switched outlets on any optional IPS Satellite
units) . The Switched Outlet can switch up to 15 Amps AC. If your
installation will include IPS Satellite Units, then repeat this
procedure for each Satellite Unit.
4-1
IPS Internet Power Switch; User's Guide
4.3. Console Port Connection
The Console Port is a male, RS232C DB9 connector, wired in a DTE
configuration similar to an AT computer. The Console 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 Console Port
interface.
4.3.1.
Connecting a Local PC
When connecting the Console Port to a Local PC, note that the port
uses a DTE configuration. After the Local PC has been connected,
make certain to set the Serial Port Mode 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 communications parameters as the IPS Console Port (default =
9600 bps, no parity, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit.) The modem must be set
to Auto-Answer, in one ring. Please refer to the modem user’s guide
for more information. Sections 5.3.1 describes the procedure for
defining modem command strings.
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-15 features a default IP address (192.168.168.168).
When installing the IPS in a working network environment, it is
recommended to define network parameters as described in
Section 5.3.3.
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.
4-2
Section 4: Installation
Figure 4.1: Connecting Optional IPS Satellite Units
4.5. Connecting Optional IPS Satellite Units
If desired, up to 16 optional IPS Satellite Units can be connected to
each IPS Master Unit. Satellite units are connected in a "chain",
with the Master unit being the first "link" in the chain as shown in
Figure 4.4. To connect IPS Satellite Units, proceed as follows:
1.
Linking: Use a standard, straight wired RJ-11 cable (such as
WTI's AC-10, AC-50, or AC-100 cables) to connect the
Master Unit and the Satellite Unit(s). Note that the two RJ11
jacks on the Satellite Unit's "Link" ports are interchangeable;
either RJ11 jack can be used.
Note: The distance between each IPS unit should not
exceed 100 feet.
2.
Address Selection: When connecting the optional Satellite
Units, note that an address must be selected for each satellite,
and up to four Satellite Units can share the same address.
These addresses allow the IPS-15 Master Unit to direct
On/Off/Boot commands to a specific Satellite Unit, or group
of Satellite Units.
a) The IPS-15 Master Unit always has an address of "1."
b) The Address Selector slider on the front panel is used to
set the address to "2" to "5" for each Satellite Unit.
4-3
IPS Internet Power Switch; User's Guide
c) When addresses are assigned to a series of IPS Satellite
Units, all satellites that share a specific address (for
example "2"), are considered to be part of the same
"Zone." For example, if your application includes three
satellite units whose Address Selector Switches are set at
"2", then those three Satellite units would all be part of
"Zone 2", and any commands directed to Zone 2 would be
applied to those three satellite units.
d) For more information on Satellite Addresses and Zones,
please refer to Section 6.1.
Notes:
· The Master Unit will not recognize Satellite Units
·
·
that are connected while the Master Unit is powered
up, until the Master Unit has been powered off
and on.
If you attempt to address a command to a Satellite
Unit that was connected after Power Up, the IPS-15
Plug Status Screen will indicate that the Satellite Unit
is not recognized.
After connecting Satellite Units to the IPS-15 Master
Unit, use the Master Power Switch on the Master
Unit's back panel to power the Master Unit Off, and
then Back on again. This will allow the Master Unit
to recognize all newly connected Satellite units.
This completes the IPS-15 installation instructions. Please proceed
to the next Section for instructions regarding unit configuration.

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 list currently defined system parameters.
User Mode: Allows access to all status screens and
On/Off/Boot commands, but does not allow access to
configuration menus and functions. Users can direct
commands to all Satellite Units and view status screens, but are
not allowed to change configuration parameters.
The IPS will display a password prompt when the unit is contacted
via the Console 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 the User Password is entered, the User Mode will
be active. Both the System Password and User Password are defined
via the General Parameters menu as described in Section 5.3.1.
Notes:
· If you wish to restrict user 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.
If the System Password has not been 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.

5.3.3.1.
IP Security Feature
The IP Security feature can be used to restrict unauthorized IP
addresses from establishing a connection with the IPS-15. In the
default state, the IPS accepts incoming IP connections from all
hosts. To configure the IP Security feature, proceed as follows:
1.
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 5.7.
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 5.9.
2.
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.
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.

If
Mask #5 is set to deny access by "255.255.255.255"
(all wild cards), you will not be able to access the IPS
Command Mode via network. Access will only be
allowed via a Local PC or external modem connected
to the IPS Console 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.

5-15
IPS Internet Power Switch; User's Guide
5.4. Save Configuration Parameters
The IPS-15 offers two methods for saving parameters; Saving to
Flash Memory, and Saving to an ASCII File.
Saving parameters to flash memory ensures that your user-defined
configuration will remain intact if power to the IPS Master Unit 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 to flash, 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-15 units, when several Master Units need to be
configured with the same parameters.
Notes:
· After new Parameters have been applied, the IPS will
·
5-16
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 flash memory, continuing without
saving, or reverting to previously saved parameters.
If parameters have not been saved, and if power to the
Master Unit is interrupted, newly defined parameters
will be lost. When power is restored, the unit will
then be configured with the previously saved
parameters.
6. Operation
As discussed in Section 5, "Configuration", the IPS-15 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. Plug Numbers and Plug Zones
As described in Section 4.5, the IPS-15 Master Unit can be
connected to up to 16 optional IPS Satellite Units. This allows the
IPS Master Unit to expand to meet the needs of your power control
application when additional switching requirements are added to
your installation.
In order to allow the IPS to direct On / Off / Boot commands to
specific groups of satellite units, the switched outlet on each
satellite unit is assigned to one of four possible Plug Numbers or
"Zones." Zones are determined by the setting of the Address
Selector Switch on each individual satellite unit. For example, all
satellite units that have their Address Selector Switch set to "2" are
defined as "Plug 2" or "Zone 2", all satellite units that have their
Address Selector Switch set to "3" are defined as "Plug 3" or
"Zone 3", and etc..
By grouping satellite units into Zones, the user is able to direct
switching commands to all satellites that share the same address. If
your application does not include optional satellite units, then
switching commands should always be directed to Plug 1 or Zone 1
(the Switched AC Outlet on the IPS Master Unit.)
Note that the IPS-15 will only detect IPS Satellite Units that were
connected at the time that the master unit was last powered up.
Satellite units that were connected after the master unit is powered
up, will not be detected until the master unit has been powered Off,
and back On again.
6-1
IPS Internet Power Switch; User's Guide
Figure 6.1: Plug Status Menu - Web Browser Interface
6.2. 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 switched outlet on the IPS Master Unit, as well as the status of
outlets on any connected IPS Satellite Units.
6.2.1.
The Plug Status Screen - Web Browser
Interface
When you log on to the IPS command mode, using the Web Browser
Interface, the first screen that is displayed after login is the Plug
Status Screen (or "Switch Panel".) The Plug Status Screen
(Figure 6.1) lists the current status of the IPS-15's Switched
Outlet(s) and provides a series of "radio buttons" which are used to
control On/Off/Boot switching of the outlet(s).
If one or more optional IPS Satellite Units have been connected to
the IPS Master Unit, then the Plug Status Screen will indicate the
On/Off status of each plug zone. If your installation includes only
the IPS Master Unit, and no optional Satellite Units, then the Plug
Status Screen will only list the status for Plug 1 (the Master Unit's
Switched AC Outlet), and the fields where Plugs 2 through 5 are
normally listed, will be dashed out.
6-2
Section 6: Operation
To invoke On/Off/Boot commands or view plug status via the Web
Browser Interface, proceed as follows:
1.

Figure 6.2: Plug Status Screen - Text Interface
6.3. 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 also includes a Help Menu, which summarizes all
available IPS-15 commands. To display the Text Interface Help
Menu (Figure 6.3), type /H and press [Enter].
6.3.1.
The Plug Status Screen - Text Interface
When you log in to the IPS command mode using the Text Interface,
the first screen that is displayed after login is the Plug Status Screen.
The Plug Status Screen (Figure 6.2) lists the current status of the
IPS's Switched Outlet(s) and displays the firmware version and
currently defined Site I.D. Message.
Normally, the Plug Status Screen will also be redisplayed every time
that a command is successfully executed. Note however, that if the
Automated Mode is enabled (See Section 6.5), the Plug Status
Screen will not be redisplayed after each command is executed.
6.3.2.
Boot/On/Off Commands - Text Interface
These commands are used to Boot or toggle the On/Off status of the
IPS's switched plug(s). Plugs may be specified by name or number.
Notes:
· Wait for the "IPS>" prompt to appear before entering
·
·
6-4
commands. The prompt will not reappear until the
previous command is complete.

IPS Internet Power Switch; User's Guide
6.3.3.
Applying Commands to Several Plugs - Text
Interface
As described below, Boot/On/Off commands can be applied to only
the switched outlet on the IPS Master Unit, or to an assortment of
plugs on the Master Unit and linked Satellite Units.
Note: When commands are applied to several plugs,
the IPS will delay for approximately one (1) second
between switching actions. For example, when
switching Plugs One and Two On, the IPS will switch
Plug 1 On, delay one second, then switch Plug 2 On.
1.
Several Plugs: To apply an On / Off / Boot command to
several plugs or zones, enter the numbers or names for the
plugs, separated by a "plus sign" (+). For example to switch
plugs 1, 4, and 5 Off, enter the following:
/OFF 1+4+5 [Enter]
2.
Series of Plugs: To apply a command to a series of IPS
Plugs or "zones", 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 (the IPS Master
Unit plus each connected Satellite Unit), enter an asterisk in
place of the name or number. For example, to Boot the
Master Unit Plug, and all plugs on connected satellite units,
enter the following:
/BO * [Enter]
6.4. Logging Out of Command Mode
When you are 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. This ensures that IPS unit will be
available to other users, and they will not have to wait for the
timeout period to elapse before accessing the IPS Command Mode.
6-6
Section 6: Operation
6.5. 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 the Automated Mode is enabled, the /ON, /OFF, /BOOT, 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 the 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 a GUI style, Web Browser Interface. When the
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 5.3.3.1.
To enable/disable the Automated Mode, access the General
Parameters menu (see Section 5.3.1) and then set the "Automated
Mode" option to the "On" state. When the Automated Mode is
enabled, IPS functions will change as follows:
1.
All Password Security Suppressed: When a user attempts to
access the command mode, the password prompt will not be
displayed at either the Console Port or 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.
6-7
IPS Internet Power Switch; User's Guide
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 if needed.
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.
6.6. 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 plug(s)
On or Off, press the Manual Control Button, and hold it down for
approximately one second; the corresponding plug(s) will be toggled
On or Off.
If desired, the Button Mode Parameter (which is accessed via the
General Parameters Menu in both the Web Browser Interface and
Text Interface), can be used to disable the manual power button
completely. In addition, the Button Mode Parameter also allows you
to restrict manual control to the master unit's switched plug only, or
allow the manual control button to control switched outlets on the
IPS-15 and all connected Satellite Units.
For more information on the Button Mode Parameter, please refer to
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 available only via the
Text Interface, parameters that have been 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-15 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 Internet Power Switch; User's Guide
7.2. Restoring Saved Parameters
This section describes the procedure for using ProComm to send
saved parameters to the IPS.
Note: Parameters that have been 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. However, the selected default
On/Off setting for each plug will be saved and
restored.
When the configuration file is sent to the IPS via
telnet, the unit's IP Address, Subnet Mask, and
Gateway Address cannot be altered.
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.
