with the above conditions may not prevent degradation of service in some situations. Repairs to certified equipment should be made by an
authorized Canadian maintenance facility designated by the supplier. Any repairs or alterations made by the user to this equipment or
equipment malfunctions may give the telecommunications company cause to request the user to disconnect the equipment.
Users should ensure for their own protection that the electrical ground connections of the power utility, telephone lines and

Hardware Installation
Installation of the FF06-2P is very simple. We have created a step by step graphic below for your convenience, but there is no specific order
required when connecting the cables and devices.
When you have connected the External Power Adapter to the FF06-2P and Power Source (100V to 250V 50-60Hz), you should see the TERM LED
and AA LED, illuminate after 8 to10 seconds later.
The FF06-2P is ready to receive calls.
When a call comes in, you should see the AA LED Flicker twice (If Dial Rings Default is set to 2 Rings).
After approximately 20 seconds, if the modem synchronization is successful, you will see the TX and RX LEDs Illuminate.
If the after the AA LED Flickers and then after approximately 20 seconds, it resets itself to constantly on, it means that Modems have not been able
to negotiate a speed. This is normally due to a bad PSTN Line condition.
A solution for this is to get the calling modem to negotiate its speed at a lower level.
The AT Command to do this is: AT+MS=V22B<CR>
If you know a call has been instigated, but the AA LED does not Flicker, this could mean:
1) A Faulty Line
2) The Wrong Number is being called.
3) The Supplied Modem Cable has a fault
From experience, it is very rarely the Pushkablue device.
A Solution is to attach a telephone to the Line, using the modem cable and get the calling operator to ring the number again.

Changing Admin 1 and 2 Names and Passwords
The FF06-2P has two Administrators. This enables network operations organizations or departments to share the same Out of Band management
device on the same telephone line, but have no access to each other’s console ports or power ports. It in effect creates two virtual out of Band
Management devices in one, using only one telephone line. The factory default settings are:
Admin 1
Default Admin 1 name: SysAdmin001
Default Admin 1 Password 1: PushkaBlue
Default Admin 1 Password 2: DoNotKnow
(All of the above are case sensitive)
Admin 1 from factory default has access to ALL Console Ports & Power Ports

Dial Out and Answer call function
The (D) Dial out and (N) aNswer call features provide better utilisation of dial lines and greater
dial security functions.
The dial out and Answer Call functions enables network operations to dial out via the Cisco
Aux port (Reverse telnet) or a direct PC serial Connection to the TERM port of the FF06-2P.
A Pushkablue can be used to dial either another Pushkablue device or any other modem
device.
There are two specific Pushkablue dial out security functions that are used
1) The Dialling out Pushkablue will automatically broadcast the Secure User ID Key (10 to 20
Digits) to the receiving Pushkablue.
2) Enables the network operator to accept a call back from a remote dial back Pushkablue or
modem device.
How to make a dial out call (Via Term Port)
This instruction assumes you have logged onto the Pushkablue device via the TCP/IP Network.
From the main Menu Type: D<CR>
This line will appear:

This next line will appear:
Enter Number to Dial (5 - 16 digits) :< enter the telephone number of the remote Pushkablue device><CR>
(Please note: if you are using a telephone line that needs a 9 or 8 to get a dial line out add a comma (,) after the 9 or 8 to enable the Pushkablue
device to pause before dialling the telephone number)
You will see: Dialling… (Please wait up to 1 minute for connection to remote end)

(N) aNswer Call
The (N) aNswer Call feature enables network operations to receive a call from a dial back modem. The example shown is from a remote
Pushkablue device unit that has a user set up called Dialback001.
When you have connected to the remote Pushkablue device and you have successfully entered your dial back user account and password(s) the
remote Pushkablue device will disconnect displaying the following message:
