QUICK START: DS62 & DS62-MD4 Module
by Bay Technical Associates
For those Administrators who have requested the bare minimum for this type of equipment, follow
these steps exactly. If this is a new unit shipped directly from Baytech, follow the steps. If this is a
previously own unit, perform a factory reset to clear out any users and passwords still in the unit.
Ethernet Controller Configuration:
Before continuing your System Administrator needs to tell you to use DHCP or give you an IP
Address, Subnet Address, and Gateway Address.
1. Connect the 9FRJ45PC-4 or 9FRJ45PC-1 adapter to your PC.
2. Connect the supplied rollover flat cable RJ08X007 to the adapter and to the EIA232 serial port
on the Baytech DS62 & DS62-MD4 Module.
3. Use terminal emulation software to access the unit, (i.e. Microsoft Hyper-terminal). Set the PC
serial port configuration to the following: 9600 bps, 8 data bits, 1stop bit and no parity.
4. If you get only a blinking cursor Press ‘Enter’. If still only a blinking cursor, Type 5 semi-colons
(;),The Attention Character will not echo on the screen. There is a one second delay before the
menu is displayed. You should see a menu similar to (Figure 1).
5. Select ‘C’ for the configuration menu.
6. Select the DS62 & DS62-MD4 module. You should see a menu similar to (Figure 2).
7. Select the number for ‘Login Setup’ option. You should see a menu similar to (Figure 3).
8. Select the number for ‘Manage Users’ option. You should see a menu similar to (Figure 4).
9. NOTE: The ‘root’ user can not be deleted.
10. Select ‘A’ to add user. Type the name and password at the prompts.
11. Press ‘Enter’ until get to the ‘Login Setup Menu’ (Figure 3).
12. Select option ‘Access Control’ to enable or disable the Tenet and Serial Login Prompt.
13. Press ‘Enter’ until you get the Configuration menu (Figure 2).
14. Select ‘Network Port Configuration’ option. You should see a menu similar to (Figure 5).
15. If your System Administrator requires you to use DHCP, then select ‘DHCP Enable/Disable’
and type ‘Y’ to enable DHCP. If you wish to assign a static IP address to this unit, Disable the
DHCP and go to step 18.
16. Press ‘Enter’ until you are asked to ‘Accept Changes’. Type ‘Y’ to accept changes or ‘N’ to
decline changes.
17. After Accepting or Declining Changes Pres ‘Enter ‘ until you get the Network Access Menu
(Figure 1).
18. Select ‘Unit reset’ to update the external connections. Once the reset is completed (1 minute)
connect the Baytech device to your network using an Ethernet cable.
19. If you disabled the DHCP in step 14, you should see a menu similar to (Figure 5).
20. Select the ‘IP Address’ option and type the assigned IP address and press ‘Enter’.
21. Select the ‘Subnet Mask’ option and type the assigned subnet mask address and press
‘Enter’.
22. Select the ‘Gateway Address’ option and type the assigned Gateway address and press
‘Enter’.
23. Press ‘Enter’ until you are asked to ‘Accept Changes’. Type ‘Y’ to accept changes.
24. Press ‘Enter’ until you get the Network Access Menu, (Figure 1).
25. Select ‘Unit reset’ to update the external connections. Once the reset is completed (1 minute)
connect the Baytech device to your network using an Ethernet cable.
At this point you have enough basic configurations needed to operate this Baytech unit.

Serial Setup
•
•
•
•
Verify JMP5 is set to pins 1 and 2 on the DS62 & DS62-MD4 module.
Connect the 9FRJ45PC-4 adapter to the user’s computer
Connect the Host Module’s EIA-232 port to the adapter via the RJ08X007 rolled flat ribbon
cable.
Use terminal emulation software to access the unit, 9600 bps, 8 data bits, 1stop bit and no
parity.
NOTE: At any time during the session you need to go to another menu, use the Attention
Character = semi-colon (;). Press the attention character key 5 consecutive times to get back to the
main status menu.

Access Control
This security feature allows the admin to enable or disable usernames and passwords for both network
and serial port access.
If either login has been enabled you will get a prompt similar to the following:

DS62-MD4 Network/Modem Host Module
Coldfire login: root
Password:
The default user and password is “root/baytech”, all lower case.
Manage Users
This menu allows the administrator to add/delete users and change their passwords for multiple users.
Up to 19 users plus an administrator allowed. Usernames and passwords are case sensitive and
alphanumeric. The root user can not be removed. Select Manage User and the DS displays the
following:
Figure 4
User Management Menu
To change user password or port access, enter number of user.
To add/delete user, select appropriate menu choice.
SNMP V3 requires passwords that are between 8 and 31 characters long

Radius Configuration
Radius is used to authenticate logins for the serial and the network ports if passwords and user names
are enabled on the DS. If the Radius server rejects either the username or password or does not
respond, the DS will display “Invalid Password”.
TACACS Configuration
TACACS can be used to authenticate logins for the serial port, the network port, and modem. When a
telnet / SSH session (or rs232 session) is started the Host module will prompt for the username and
password. The Host will communicate with the TACACS server. If the server verifies the username
and password, the Host will display the menus. If the server rejects the username and password or
does not respond the Host will display the reason why the login failed.
Network Port Configuration
IMPORTANT: For network access, enable Telnet and configure the IP addresses, Subnet
Mask, and Gateway Address, or enable the DHCP. The module must be reset for network
changes to take effect.
