communications equipment (e.g., a multiplexer or CSU/DSU). The WPIM-Sync uses a
subminiature 26-pin connector that supports the electrical signal interfaces listed below.
Appendix A, WPIM Cable Specifications, provides complete part number and cable pin
assignment information for the following electrical signal interfaces: EIA-RS449, V.35,
EIA-RS232D, X.21, EIA-RS530, EIA-530A, RS530 ALT A, and RS530A ALT A
•
The WPIM-DDS provides a 56 Kbps or 64 Kbps Digital Data Service (DDS) connection. The
WPIM-DDS supports remote CSU diagnostic, or 64 Kbps clear channel loopback and
non-latching remote DSU diagnostic loopback.
•
The WPIM-E1 provides an E1 interface through a front panel RJ45 port and includes a built-in
CSU/DSU for direct connection to an E1 line. The WPIM-E1 provides both Full E1(32 time
slots) or Fractional E1 (less than 32 time slots) using 56Kbps, or 64 Kbps per time slot with a
total throughput of up to 2.048 Mbps.
•
The WPIM-DI provides a T1 interface through a front panel RJ45 port and includes a built-in
CSU/DSU for direct connection to a T1 line. The WPIM-DI provides both Full T1 (24 time
slots) or Fractional T1 (less than 24 time slots) using 56Kbps-, or 64 Kbps per time slot. The
WPIM-D1 also provides a second Drop-and-Insert interface, which allows more than one
device, such as a PBX, to share a single T1 connection.
•
The WPIM-S/T provides an Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) 128 Kbps Basic Rate
Interface for the CSX200. An NT-1 adapter is necessary for this interface in the United States.
•
The WPIM-HDSL provides a 1.544 Mbps connection for: users in a campus environment, or
for access to local subscriber loops. The WPIM-HDSL uses existing telephone lines between
floors, buildings, or other physical structures. HDSL supports line lengths of up to 3, 657 meters
(12,000 feet) over 24 AWG Unshielded Twisted Pair cabling.
Ethernet LAN Connection
The CSX200 provides 10 Mbps Ethernet/IEEE 802.3 support through twelve (11 if Call Backup is
enabled) 8-pin RJ45 10BASE-T ports on the front of the unit (see Figure 2-1).
Repeater Functionality — The CSX200 fully conforms to the IEEE 802.3 Repeater, AUI, and
10BASE-T specifications, and provides the flexibility to connect networks using IEEE 802.3,
Ethernet Version 1 or Version 2 equipment. The CSX200 transmits retimed data packets,
regenerates the preamble, extends fragments, and arbitrates collisions. The CSX200 automatically
partitions problem segments, and reconnects repaired segments to the network. This feature
minimizes the impact on network operation resulting from a problem on one segment by isolating
the problem segment. Only devices on the problem segment are affected. When the problem is
solved, the CSX200 automatically reconnects the isolated segment to the network.
2-2
CSX200 Installation Guide
Remote Management Capabilities
Polarity Detection and Correction — Each twisted pair port on the CSX200 incorporates a
Polarity Detection and Correction feature that allows the CSX200 to pass data regardless of the
polarity of the twisted pair segment’s receive link. We do not recommend operating in this
condition. When this condition is detected, remove the segment from the network and wire it
correctly to reduce the potential for problems if equipment changes are made.
Flash EEPROMs — The CSX200 uses a Flash Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only
Memory (EEPROM) that allows the downloading of new and updated firmware in conjunction
with QuickSET or any device utilizing BootP or TFTP protocols.
LANVIEW LEDs — LANVIEW Status Monitoring and Diagnostics System is a troubleshooting
tool that helps in diagnosing power failures, collisions, cable faults, and link problems. The
LANVIEW LEDs are conveniently located on the CSX200 front panel.
RESET Button — The front panel RESET button reboots the CSX200 and initializes the
processor. The RESET button is also used (with the mode switches) to clear NVRAM.
Remote Management Capabilities
The CSX200 can be managed remotely with any SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol)
compliant network management system.
Optional Features
Rack Mounting Capabilities — The CSX200 can be installed in a 19-inch rack with an
accessory package that includes the rackmount brackets, a strain-relief bracket for cable
management, and mounting screws. See Chapter 4, Installation, for complete rack mounting
instructions.
Hardware Data Compression Module — The same industry standard STAC Electronics
Stacker LZS Compression algorithm supported by CSX200 software is made available by an
optional hardware data compression module that accelerates data compression for the CSX200
over PPP and Frame Relay. Depending on the packet type and size, hardware data compression
provides a minimum of 2:1 data compression, giving (effectively) 3 Mbps throughput on a T-1
WPIM interface. To use the hardware data compression module, compatible equipment (that
conforms to the applicable standards), must be in use at both ends of the WAN link. When the
hardware data compression module is installed on the board, it automatically assumes the
compression task from software. There is no configuration necessary to prioritize hardware over
software compression.

CSX200 Installation Guide
CSX200 Firmware Support
Firmware Data Compression
The STAC Electronics Stacker LZS Compression algorithm provides a minimum of 2:1 firmware
data compression for the CSX200 over PPP and Frame Relay. Firmware data compression is
supported in software on each WAN interface for line speeds of up to 256 Kbps per WPIM, which
is equivalent to four DS0 channels. To use data compression, compatible equipment (which
conforms to the applicable standards), must be in use at both ends of the WAN link. This method
of data compression is used as the default, if the hardware compression module is not installed.
HDLC
High-level Data Link Control (HDLC) protocol is used in conjunction with the WPIM-HDSL to
conserve WAN bandwidth between two compatible devices, over a point-to-point connection. The
HDLC (RAW) protocol reduces the amount of overhead information that needs to be contained
within each data packet to direct it to its destination. This decreased packet overhead provides
more available bandwidth to transfer data.
DHCP and NAT
The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) and Network Address Translation (NAT)
schemes eliminate the expense of purchasing limited public IP addresses for each client on a local
network, and the need to re-configure a client if it is moved to a different network.
The CSX200 acts as a DHCP server that lets individual clients (PCs, network equipment) take
turns using a range of private IP addresses (often referred to as local IP addresses), and provides
optional secondary setup features for these clients on a per-port basis. A private or “local” network
is referred to as a sub network that is using private or “local” IP addresses. An “outside” network
refers to a Wide Area Network (WAN) commonly known as an Internet. An Intranet is an
“Internet” in use on a facility or campus where registered public IP addresses are required.
The CSX200 distributes these addresses on a first-come-first-served basis, dynamically assigning a
local IP address to an individual client (from 253 available addresses). This local IP address is then
“leased” for a predetermined amount of time, configured for a particular port. Each Ethernet port
provides DHCP services for one Class C subnet and secondary setup features for individual clients
that support the use of a default gateway, domain name and WINs server. On the Wide Area
Network (WAN) side, the Network Address Translation (NAT) routing scheme lets clients with
local IP addresses use the public IP address(es) of the CSX200 WAN interface(s) to access the
WAN.
NAT lets several DHCP clients on a sub network connect to WAN clients by letting the DHCP
clients share a single public IP address. The NAT scheme modifies the IP headers and addresses,
and the selected fields in upper layer protocol headers.
CSX200 Installation Guide
2-5
Chapter 2: About the CSX200
This is done to replace the hidden local IP addresses from the sub network with one or more public
InterNic assigned IP addresses that can be sent over the outside network on the WAN interfaces.
Once the CSX200 is assigned at least one public IP address, over 250 IP clients can share this
address simultaneously using NAT. This public IP address is assigned statically by the Internet
Service Provider (ISP).
Frame Relay Protocol
Frame Relay can be defined as a “packet mode” service, organizing data into individually
addressed units known as “frames”. Frame Relay eliminates Layer 3 processing. Only a few
Layer 2 functions are used, such as checking for a valid, error free frame, but not requesting
retransmission if an error is found. Frame Relay uses a variable length framing structure, which,
depending on user data, can range from a few to more than a thousand characters.
A Frame Relay Network will often be depicted as a cloud, because the Frame Relay Network is
not a single physical connection between one endpoint and another. Frame Relay Protocol is based
on the concept of “virtual circuits” (VCs). VCs are two-way, software defined data paths between
two ports that take the place of private lines in the network. There are two types of Frame Relay
connections; Switched Virtual Circuits (SVCs), and Permanent Virtual Circuits (PVCs).
Permanent Virtual Circuits, or PVCs, are set up via a network management system, and initially
defined as a connection between two sites, or endpoints. PVCs may be added as the demand arises
for more bandwidth, alternate routing, or more sites, or endpoints. PVCs are fixed paths, not
available on demand, or on a call-by-call basis. Although the actual path through the network may
change from time to time, such as when automatic rerouting takes place, the beginning and end of
the circuit will not change.
Switched Virtual Circuits, or SVCs, are available on a call-by-call basis using the SVC signaling
protocol (Q.933). The network must quickly establish the connection, and allocate bandwidth
based on the user’s request.
In a Frame Relay frame, user data packets are not changed in any way. A two-byte header is
appended to the frame. Contained in this header is a 10-bit number called the Data Link
Connection Identifier (DLCI). The DLCI is the “virtual circuit” number which corresponds to a
particular destination. The DLCI allows data coming into a Frame Relay switch to be sent across
the network using a three-step process: check the integrity of the frame and discard it if it is in
error, look up the DLCI in a table and if not intended for this link, discard the frame. If the frame
passes the previous tests, relay the frame toward its destination out the port specified in the table. If
the frame passes the previous tests, relay the frame toward its destination out the port specified in
the table.

CSX200 Installation Guide
CSX200 Firmware Support
The ANSI standard defines a mechanism for the network to signal the existence of congestion,
called Explicit Congestion Notification (ECN) bits. Frame Relay uses FECN (Forward ECN) and
BECN (Backward ECN) bits to notify end user devices about network congestion. Although the
Frame Relay Protocol does not respond to congestion, some higher layer protocols for end-user
devices may respond to ECNs by recognizing that delays have increased, or that frames have been
dropped.
Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP)
PPP is a data link layer industry standard WAN protocol for transferring multi-protocol data traffic
over point-to-point connections. With this protocol, options such as security, data compression,
and network protocols can be negotiated over the connection. Data compression allows Frame
Relay to negotiate compression over Frame Relay permanent virtual circuits (PVCs). Frame Relay
is a packet-switching data communications protocol that statistically multiplexes many data
conversations over a single transmission link.
The CSX200 supports synchronous PPP over an ISDN WAN port (WPIM-S/T). In Single Link
Mode, PPP uses one ISDN B channel for data transmission. PPP runs over each ISDN B channel
for two separate conversations (split B channel). In Multi-Link Protocol mode, PPP
simultaneously sends and receives data over two ISDN B channels on the same connection to
optimize bandwidth usage. The STAC Electronics Stacker LZS Compression Protocol is supported
over PPP, providing up to 4:1 data compression.
PAP and CHAP Security
The CSX200 supports the Password Authentication Protocol (PAP) and Challenge Handshake
Authentication Protocol (CHAP) under PPP.
PAP provides verification of passwords between devices using a two-way handshake. One device
(peer) sends the system name and password to the other device (authenticator). Then the
authenticator checks the peer’s password against the configured remote peer’s password and
returns acknowledgment.
CHAP is more secure than PAP as unencrypted passwords are not sent across the network. CHAP
uses a 3-way handshake and supports full or half-duplex operation. In half-duplex operation, the
authenticator device challenges the peer device by generating a CHAP challenge. The challenge
contains an MD5 algorithm with a random number that your encrypted password and system
name. The peer device then applies a one-way hash algorithm to the random number and returns
this encrypted information along with the system name in the CHAP response. The authenticator
then runs the same algorithm and compares the result with the expected value. This authentication
method depends upon a password or secret, known only to both ends locally.
CSX200 Installation Guide
2-7
Chapter 2: About the CSX200
Full-duplex operation places an additional step to half-duplex operation that mirrors the operation
for a peer to validate the authenticator. The peer device challenges the authenticator by generating
a CHAP challenge, and the authenticator returns a CHAP response.
The peer device challenges the authenticator device by generating a CHAP challenge, and the
challenge contains your encrypted password and system name. The authenticator device then
applies a one-way hash algorithm to the random number and returns this encrypted information
along with the system name in the CHAP response. The peer device then runs the same algorithm
and compares the result with the expected value. This authentication method depends upon a
password or secret, known only to both ends locally.
LQM
Link Quality Monitoring (LQM) is a link control mechanism used with PPP to determine when,
and how often, a link is dropping data in units of packets and octets. Link Quality Monitoring
accomplishes this by providing Link-Quality-Reports to determine if the quality of the link is
adequate for operation. Link Quality Monitoring provides separate measurements for both
incoming and outgoing packets that are communicated to both ends of the link.
The PPP LQM mechanism carefully defines the Link-Quality-Report packet formats, and specifies
reference points for all data transmission and reception measurements. The LQM implementation
maintains successfully received packet and octet counts, and periodically transmits this
information to its peer using Link-Quality-Report packets.
Multilink Protocol
Multilink Protocol (MP) is an extension of PPP that controls the way frames are transferred across
several links whenever a single link is not sufficient to meet requirements of your present traffic
load. Multilink Protocol establishes several simultaneous links between two end points over
switched circuits (dial-up lines) in an ISDN network, and dynamically adjusts the bandwidth
demands between available links to maintain an effective data transfer.
ISDN
ISDN provides an inexpensive switched digital access to remote sites. The ISDN BRI (Basic Rate
Interface) standard provides for two high speed 64 Kbps bearer (B) channels used for voice or data
connections and one 16 Kbps signaling data (D) channel used for call setup, signaling, and other
information. ISDN allows all types of information to be transferred including voice, data, fax, and
video. Multiple devices can be linked to a single ISDN connection, each having their own
telephone number. Two or more channels can be combined into a single larger transmission pipe
offering variable transmission speeds.
2-8
CSX200 Installation Guide
CSX200 Firmware Support
The CSX200 supports one ISDN BRI line and either or both of the B channels for transferring
data. If the two B channels are used for separate connections, each provides up to 64 Kbps transfer
rate. Both channels can be used together to provide uncompressed data transfer at up to 128 Kbps.
The CSX200 can also transfer compressed data at up to 512 Kbps (after decompression).
A network terminator device (NT-1) provides the interface between ISDN terminal (router)
equipment and the ISDN service provider. The CSX200 supports the WPIM-S/T by providing an
S/T interface that requires an external NT-1.
The following telephone switch types are supported within the U.S.:
•
NET3 (European ISDN)
•
NET3SW (European Swiss Variant)
•
NTT (Nippon Telephone and Telegraph)
•
KDD (Kokusai Denshin Denwa Co. Ltd.)
•
French Delta (VN4) switches
HDSL
High data rate Digital Subscriber Line (HDSL) technology uses existing copper twisted pair cables
designed for conventional analog voice transmission from a telephone carrier servicing area as
low-cost alternative to fiber optic cables. HDSL provides high-speed full-duplex digital
transmission links of up to 1.544 Mbps.
HDSL is a direct connection technology that allows connections to be made for distances of up to
12,000 feet over 24 American Wire Gauge (AWG) unconditioned twisted pair wire. To obtain the
Full T1 line Rate of 1.544 Mbps, two wire pairs are necessary (four wires). If one pair of wires is
used, the data rate is772 Kbps, equivalent to one-half of a T1 line.
Bridging and Routing
Bridging — Bridging connects two or more separate networks together. The bridge examines a
portion of each network frame called the header. This header contains control information for the
frame. The bridge compares the destination address of the frame to a table of source addresses
(bridges dynamically learn the physical location of devices by logging the source addresses of
each frame and the bridge port the frame was received on in the source address table).
CSX200 Installation Guide
2-9
Chapter 2: About the CSX200
In transparent bridging, the decision to forward the frame is based on this comparison. If the
address indicates that the sending station and the destination station are on the same side of the
bridge, the frame is not forwarded across the bridge. If the addresses do not indicate that, the
bridge forwards the broadcast frame across the bridge to the other network(s).
Bridging allows frames to be sent to all destinations regardless of the network protocols used. It
also allows protocols that cannot be routed (such as NETBIOS) to be forwarded, and optimizes
internetwork capacity by localizing traffic on LAN segments. A bridge extends the physical reach
of networks beyond the limits of each LAN segment. Filters can be used to increase network
security in bridged networks, and restrict message forwarding by using user-built address
tables (non-transparent bridging).
Routing — Routing provides a way to transfer user data from source to destination over different
LAN and WAN links using one or more network protocol formats. Routing relies on routing
address tables to determine the best path for each packet. Routing tables can be seeded (i.e.,
addresses for remote destinations are placed in the table along with network address masks and a
metric for path latency). Routing tables are also built dynamically (i.e., the location of remote
stations, hosts and networks are updated through inter-router protocols). Routing helps to increase
network capacity by localizing traffic on LAN segments and broadcasts that would result from
bridged traffic. It also provides security by isolating traffic on segmented LANs. Routing extends
the world-wide reach of networks.
CSX200 Bridging and Routing — The CSX200 can operate as a bridge, a router, or both. The
CSX200 operates as a router for network protocols that are supported when routing is enabled and
operates as a bridge when bridging is enabled. When both bridging and routing are enabled,
routing takes precedence over bridging; i.e., the CSX200 uses the protocol address information of
the packet to route the packet to the correct destination. However, if the protocol is not supported,
the CSX200 operates as a bridge and uses the MAC address information to send the packet.
Operation of the CSX200 is influenced by routing and bridging controls and filters set during
CSX200 configuration. General IP routing, and routing or bridging from specific remote routers
are controls set during the configuration process.
IEEE 802.1d Bridging — The CSX200 supports the IEEE 802.1d standard for LAN to LAN
bridging. Bridging is provided over PPP and Frame Relay as well as adjacent LAN ports. Bridging
uses the MAC (Machine Address and Control layer) address unique to each device. When
configured as a bridge, the CSX200 bridges data packets to the destination, regardless of the
network protocols used.
2-10
CSX200 Installation Guide
CSX200 Firmware Support
The CSX200 uses the Spanning Tree Algorithm to prevent data loops and duplicate data. This is a
self-learning bridge, i.e., the bridge builds and updates an address table with each MAC source
address and associated information when the packets are received.
IP Routing — IP routing support provides the ability to process TCP/IP frames at the network
layer for routing. IP routing support includes the Routing Information Protocol (RIP) that allows
the exchange of routing information on a TCP/IP network. The CSX200 receives and rebroadcasts
RIP messages to and from adjacent routers and workstations.
IPX Routing — Internet Packet Exchange (IPX) routing support provides the ability to process
Novell proprietary frames at the network layer for routing. IPX routing support includes both
Routing Information Protocol (RIP), and Service Advertising Protocol (SAP). These protocols
allow the exchange of routing information on a Novell NetWare network. The SAP protocol
provides a means for routers and workstations to advertise their class of services (file, print, etc.) to
adjacent routers and workstations.
Bridging and Routing Protocol Filtering
Filtering is used to allow efficient usage of network resources and provide security for your
network and hosts.
IP Internet Firewall — The CSX200 supports IP Internet Firewall filtering to prevent
unauthorized access to your system and network resources from the Internet or a corporate
Intranet. Security can be configured to permit or deny IP traffic. The security is established by
configuring IP access filters, which are based on source IP address, source mask, destination IP
address, destination mask, protocol type, and application port identifiers for both Transmission
Control Protocol (TCP) and User Datagram Protocol (UDP).
IP access filters allow individual IP source and destination pair filtering as well as IP address
ranges and wild carding to match any IP address. Firewall filters can be defined to allow inbound
only, outbound only, or bi-directional IP communication up to the UDP and TCP application port
level. The CSX200 supports the IP Access Control (from the ctip-mib) Internet Firewall Filter.
Bridge Filtering — Bridge filtering lets a network administrator control the flow of packets
across the CSX200. Bridge filtering is used to “deny” or “allow” packets based on a “matched
pattern” using a specified position and hexadecimal content within the packet. This enables
restricting or forwarding of messages based on address, protocol, or data content. Common uses
include preventing access to remote networks, controlling unauthorized access to the local
network, and limiting unnecessary traffic.

Chapter 2: About the CSX200
System Passwords
You can control access to the CSX200 by the use of three passwords. Each password provides a
different level of access to the CSX200. The default password for each access level is pre-set to
public. The following definitions explain the levels of access:
read-only — allows reading of device parameters not including system passwords.
read-write — Allows editing of some device configuration parameters not including changing
system passwords.
super-user — Allows full management privileges. You must access the CSX200 at this level to
run QuickSET.
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)
The CSX200 provides SNMP agent support for standard, and Enterprise-Specific Management
Information Bases (MIBs), and support for standard, and Enterprise-Specific SNMP Traps. SNMP
is also used internally for configuration of the CSX200. The active SNMP agent within the
CSX200 accepts SNMP requests for status, statistics, and configuration updates. Communication
with the SNMP agent occurs over the LAN or WAN connection. Any management application
using SNMP over UDP/IP has access to the local SNMP agent.
SNMP MIB Support
SNMP MIBs (Management Information Bases) are databases of objects used for managing and
determining the status and configuration of an SNMP-compliant device.
The CSX200 supports the following SNMP MIBs:
•
MIB II RFC1213

10BASE-T LAN Requirements
This chapter contains general networking guidelines for setting up a 10BASE-T Local Area
Network using ports 1 through 12 on the CSX200. Review the requirements and specifications
outlined in this chapter before attempting to install the CSX200.
Network Requirements
Take care in planning and preparing the cabling and connections for your network. The quality of
the connections, the length of cables, and other conditions of the installation play critical roles in
determining the reliability of your network.
10BASE-T Twisted Pair Network
When connecting a 10BASE-T twisted pair segment to any of the CSX200 ports (Interfaces 1
through 12), ensure the network meets the following requirements:
Length — The IEEE 802.3 standard for 10BASE-T requires that 10BASE-T devices transmit
over a 100 meter (328 foot) link on 22–24 AWG Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) wire. However,
cable quality largely determines maximum link length. Lengths of up to 200 meters may be
achieved if high quality, low attenuation cable is used. Cable delay limits the maximum link length
to 200 meters.
NOTE
Losses introduced by connections at punch-down blocks and other equipment reduce
total segment length. For each connector or patch panel in the link, subtract 12 meters
from the total length of the cable.
Impedance — Cabletron Systems 10BASE-T twisted pair products use twisted pair cable with
75 to 165 ohms impedance. UTP cable typically has an impedance from 85 to 110 ohms. Shielded
twisted pair cable, such as IBM Type 1 cable with an impedance of 150 ohms can also be used.
CSX200 Installation Guide
3-1
Chapter 3: 10BASE-T LAN Requirements
Temperature — Multi-pair PVC 24 AWG telephone cable typically has an attenuation of
approximately 8–10 dB/100 m at 20°C (68°F). The attenuation of PVC insulated cable varies with
temperature. At temperatures greater than 40°C (104°F), use plenum-rated cable to ensure that
attenuation remains within specification.

10BASE-T LAN Configuration
This section contains the procedures for connecting a UTP segment from the 10BASE-T network
or other devices to the CSX200. Ports 1 through 12 on the CSX200 have RJ45 connectors for UTP
connections.
Connecting UTP Cables to Ports 1 Through 12
Before connecting a segment to the CSX200, check each end of the segment to verify wire
crossover.
!
CAUTION
To establish a link, you must have an odd number of crossovers (preferably one)
between 10BASE-T devices of the same type (i.e., from repeater to repeater or
transceiver to transceiver).
Connect a twisted pair segment to the CSX200 as follows:
1. Ensure that the device at the other end of the segment is connected to the segment and is
powered ON.
2. Refer to Figure 3-1. Connect the twisted pair segment to the CSX200 by inserting the RJ45
connector on the twisted pair segment into the desired RJ45 port (ports 1 through 12).

3. Verify that a Link exists by checking that the receive port (RCV) LED is on (flashing green or
amber or on solid green). If the RCV LED is off, perform the following steps until it is on:
a. Check that the 10BASE-T device at the other end of the twisted pair segment is ON and
connected to the segment.
b. Verify that the RJ45 connectors on the twisted pair segment have the proper pinouts
(Figure 3-2) and check the cable for continuity.

•
For a LAN connection, verify that the IP address matches the IP address previously stored into
the configuration of the router. You must have previously (through QuickSET) set the Ethernet
LAN IP address and Subnet Mask, enabled IP routing, saved the Ethernet configuration changes
and rebooted the router for the new IP address to take effect.
•
Check that your LAN cable is wired correctly and each end securely plugged in.
•
Make sure that an IP route exists between your local PC and the CSX200. The PC and CSX200
must be on the same IP subnetwork or the CSX200 must be reachable through a router on your
LAN.
•
Check Network TCP/IP properties under Windows 95 or Windows NT, as described in the
Read Me First! document.
User Cannot Communicate with Remote Network Station
If Bridging,
•
Check that the Bridging Default Destination is set.
•
Check that bridging to/from the remote router is set on.
•
Be sure to reboot if you have made any bridging destination or control changes.

If TCP/IP Routing,
•
Check that TCP/IP Routing is set on and is enabled at the remote end.
•
Check that the IP address of the LAN beyond the remote router is correct, as well as the
associated Subnet Mask.
•
If the remote router WAN IP address and Subnet Mask are required, check that they have been
specified correctly.
•
Check that, if required, the source and remote WAN IP addresses are on the subnetwork.
•
Check that you have seeded the routing table, if RIP is not allowed to flow on the WAN link.
•
Be sure to reboot if you have made any IP address, control or protocol option changes.

OSI — Open System Interconnection. An international standard developed by ITU (formally
CCITT) and ISO (International Organization for Standardization) to facilitate data networking
multi-vendor interoperability. The OSI Reference Model defines seven layers, each providing
specific network functions.
Packet — A group of data that includes a header and usually user data for transmission through a
network.
Ping (Packet Internet Groper) — An echo message, available within the TCP/IP protocol suite,
sent to a remote node and returned; used to test the accessibility of the remote node.
PPP (Point-to-Point Protocol) — A Data Link layer protocol that provides asynchronous and
synchronous connectivity between computer/network nodes. Includes standardization for security
and compression negotiation.
Q.921 — ISDN Data Link layer specification for the user-to-network interface.
Q.931 — ISDN specification for call set-up and signaling on ISDN connections.
RFC — Request for Comment. Documentation describing Internet communications
specifications (e.g., Telnet, TFTP). Often these RFCs are used to achieve multi-vendor
interoperability during implementation.
RJ11 — Standard 4-wire connectors for telephone lines.
RJ45 — Standard 8-wire connectors used for ISDN lines and 10 BASE-T connections.
RIP (Routing Information Protocol) — Protocols used in IP and IPX for broadcasting open path
information between routers to keep routing tables current.
Routing — A Network layer function that determines the path for transmitting packets through a
network from source to destination.
RS-232 — EIA standard specifying the physical layer interface used to connect a device to
communications media.
Serialization Frames — Frames sent out by servers under IPX to check whether illegal copies of
NetWare are in use on the network.
Service Advertising Protocol — Protocol used in IPX for broadcasting information about
services available on the network, such as file servers, CD-ROM drives and modem pools.

Glossary
SNMP — Simple Network Management Protocol. A widely implemented Internet network
management protocol that allows status monitoring, getting/setting of parameters for configuration
and control of network devices, such as routers and bridges.
Split B Channels — Each 64 Kbps ISDN B-channel can be used individually for a separate data
connection.
Spoofing — Spoofing is a technique used to remove poll and update service frames from WAN
links while ensuring that the network continues to operate normally. Spoofing is employed to
minimize dial-up line connection time.
Subnet Address — An extension of the Internet 32-bit addressing scheme that allows the
separation of physical or logical networks within the single network number assigned to an
organization. TCP/IP entities outside this organization have no knowledge of the internal
“subnetting.”
Subnet Mask — A 32-bit internet protocol address mask used to identify a particular
subnetwork.
TCP/IP — Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol. Refers to a set of internetworking
protocols developed by the U.S. Department of Defense that define a two level layered approach
for interoperability. TCP provides a connection-oriented Transport layer ensuring end-to-end
reliability in data transmission. IP provides for Network layer connectivity using connectionless
datagrams.
Telco Cloud — The “cloud” of switched virtual connections over a Wide Area Network (WAN).
TELNET — Internet standard protocol for remote terminal emulation that allows a user to
remotely log in to another device and appear as if directly connected.
TFTP — Trivial File Transfer Protocol. A simplified version of the File Transfer Protocol (FTP)
allowing for file transfer between computers over a network.
Transparent Bridging — Bridging technique used in Ethernet networks that allows transfer of
frames across intermediate nodes using tables associating end nodes with bridging addresses.
Bridges are unknown to the end nodes.
UDP — User Datagram Protocol. A connectionless protocol used to pass packets across an
internet network, requiring no handshaking between source and destination.

Appendix D: Glossary
Watchdog Frames — Frames sent out by servers to clients, under IPX, to verify that clients are
still logged on.
Wide Area Network — A communications network that is geographically dispersed thus
requiring links provided by communications carriers.
Workstation — Computer or terminal used by the systems administration or user.
