Introduction to the RLXIC-SV
User Manual
Connecting to your cellular provider
The RLXIC-SV uses your cellular provider as an ISP (Internet Service Provider)
to connect you to the Internet.
1.3.1 Steps of a connection
1
2
3
When your RLXIC-SV is powered on, it automatically searches for cellular
service using CDMA.
Your RLXIC-SV establishes a PPP (Point to Point Protocol or "dial" up
connection) link to the your cellular provider network, also called registering
on the network, and receives an IP address.
When your RLXIC-SV has received its IP address from your cellular provider,
a connection to the Internet or the cellular network is also available for a
computer or other device connected directly to the RLXIC-SV.
The RLXIC-SV will perform a one-to-one routing for all internet traffic to and
from the computer or other end device. One-to-one means that your RLXIC-SV
will provide a connection for one device to the Internet at a time. In Private Mode,
the RLXIC-SV will provide NAT (Network Address Translation) for the computer
or other end device.
1.3.2 Dynamic vs. Static IP Addresses
There are two types of addresses on networks: dynamic and static.
ƒ
ƒ
Dynamic addresses are assigned on a "need to have" basis. Your RLXIC-SV
might not always receive the same address each time it connects with your
cellular provider.
Static addresses are permanently assigned to a particular account, and will
always be used whenever your RLXIC-SV connects to the Internet. The IP
address will not be given to anyone else.
Most ISPs (cellular included) use dynamic IP addresses rather than static IP
addresses, because it allows them to reuse a smaller number of IP addresses for
a large number of customers. A dynamic IP address is suitable for many
common Internet uses, such as web browsing, looking up data on another
computer system, or other client functions (such as data only being sent out or
only being received after an initial request).

User Manual
RLXIC-SV ♦ Intelligent Cellular
RadioLinx Intelligent Cellular Serial Modem for the Verizon Wireless CDMA Network
Tip: If your account with your cellular provider includes a dynamic IP address, and you need a
static IP, please consult your cellular provider Representative for more information about changing
your account for static IP support.
If you need to contact your RLXIC-SV, a device connected to the RLXIC-SV, or a
host system using the RLXIC-SV from the Internet, you need to have a known IP
(such as one which is static) or domain name (an IP address which is converted
by a DNS server into a word based name). If you have a dynamic IP address for
your modem, you can use a Dynamic DNS service (such as IP Manager) to
translate your IP address into to a domain name.
Caution: If you want to connect remotely to your RLXIC-SV using TCP/IP, the IP address given to
your modem by your cellular provider cannot be a private or internal IP address (such as a custom
APN or special private network Data Link) unless you are on the same network or inside that
network's firewall (such as with frame relay).
1.4
1x Communication EV-DO
CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) is the underlying digital radio network
technology used by many cellular providers across the globe and is prevalent in
North America. To provide backward compatibility and seamless connections in a
wider range of locations, your RLXIC-SV will fall back to 1x when EV-DO is not
available.
RLXIC-SV is certified with the prominent North American 1x and EV-DO carriers.
1.4.1 EV-DO
EV-DO (Evolution Data Optimized) provides a broadband-like cellular data
connections that is 10 times faster than 1x/CDMA service. With the high-speed
connection, users can experience faster downloading when accessing the
Internet and retrieving e-mails, including large attachments and other bandwidthintensive applications. EV-DO is often referred to as Mobile Broadband and
Cellular Broadband.
EV-DO revision A is an enhancement on the original revision 0 adding expanded
upload capabilities and a more robust connection overall. In addition to
increasing the downlink speed, revision A also increases the uplink speed. In
addition, it is backwards compatible and automatically connects with existing and
broadly deployed EV-DO Rev. 0 and 1x networks ensuring reliable and pervasive
connectivity.
Note: Your RLXIC-SV does not have a second antenna for received diversity. Received diversity is
disabled by default.

1.4.2 1x
1x provides a digital cellular telephony system and can provide wireless Internet
access at speeds between 60 and 80 kbps, with bursts up to 144 kbps.
1.4.3 Security
1x and EV-DO data transmissions are highly secure. Originally developed based
upon the "spread spectrum" pioneered by the US Department of Defense,
security in CDMA technologies is obtained by spreading the digital information
contained in a particular signal of interest over multiple coded paths, over a much
greater bandwidth than the original signal.

Dial-up Networking (DUN) allows a computer or other device to use the serial
port on a RLXIC-SV to connect to the Internet or private network just like an
analog modem using a standard phone line. The Setup Wizard will install a driver
for the RLXIC-SV and set up the connection between your computer and the
RLXIC-SV. You will need to have administrator access on the computer for this
section of the installation.
If you already have other modems installed on your computer, they will be listed
on the Modem Installation screen. If you have other modems installed on your

Note: During installation, please be sure that the cables are secure but do not bear any additional
weight that could loosen the connector from the unit.
Your RLXIC-SV should be mounted in a position that allows easy access for the
cables so they are not bent, constricted, in close proximity to high amperage, or
exposed to extreme temperatures. The LEDs on the front panel should be visible
for ease of operational verification. You should ensure that there is adequate
airflow around the modem but that it is kept free from direct exposure to the
elements, such as sun, rain, dust, etc.
Caution: The RLXIC-SV is in a hardened case, and designed for use in industrial and extreme
environments. However, unless you are using cables expressly designed for such environments,
they can fail if exposed to the same conditions the RLXIC-SV can withstand.
Note: This device is not intended for use within close proximity of the human body. Antenna
installation should provide for at least a 20 CM separation from the operator.

User Manual
Antennas selected should not exceed a maximum gain of 5 dBi under standard
installation configuration. In more complex installations (such as those requiring
long lengths of cable, and/or multiple connections), it is imperative that the
installer follow maximum dBi gain guidelines in accordance with the radio
communications regulations of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC),
Industry Canada, or your country's regulatory body (if used outside the US).
Your RLXIC-SV will work with most cellular antennas with a SMA connector.
Connect the primary antenna or primary RF cable directly to the antenna
connector on the back of the RLXIC-SV.
Tip: When using a cable to an antenna placed away from the modem, minimize the length of your
cable. All gain from a more advantageous antenna placement can be lost with a long cable to the
modem.
4.1
Connecting to Power
This I/O port handles external input and output events. An external device can
send digital input to the modem, through the digital I/O port.
Your RLXIC-SV can be used with either DC or AC, with the appropriate power
adapter. DC cables and AC adapters are available as optional accessories in
addition to the one included with your RLXIC-SV.
The color wires are:
ƒ
ƒ
BLACK (2 conductor) = Ground
RED (1 conductor) = Power
Note: When using a DC power source (such as a solar cell), ProSoft Technology recommends
placing a fuse (1-2 Amp) on the line close to the power source to protect your power source from
possible surges due to shorts or other line issues.
The DC power cable positive lead should be connected to the battery or power
source positive terminal. The power cable negative lead should be connected to
the battery or power source negative terminal.
Tip: The DC power cable has a white wire lead in addition to the power positive and negative. This
is for a feature not present in the RLXIC line modems. In the RLXIC-SV, the white wire lead has no
function and can be ignored.

With ALEOS as its "brain", the RLXIC-SV is a highly configurable device, more
than just a "dumb" modem.
To configure your RLXIC-SV, you have two options. You can use the
configuration and management applications of the AceWare suite or you can use
a terminal emulator application such as HyperTerminal, PuTTY, or many others.
Because the AceWare applications are designed for ease of use, nearly all
descriptions and screen shots of RLXIC-SV configuration in this guide and
Application Notes are done with AceManager. In addition to the various chapters
in this guide giving information and directions about using the features of your
RLXIC-SV, the Configuration Commands appendix briefly describes all the
commands available. To get a more expanded view of the other AceManager
features, refer to the AceManager Guide.
Refer to Configuration Commands for a full listing of the available commands

Caution: Many of the configuration settings will not take effect until the modem has been reset.
Tip: You can use common settings on one modem to configure those same settings on another
modem even of a different type. For example, you can use the serial settings of a modem (such as
RLXIC-SG, SV) to configure the serial settings of a RLXIC-SV. Settings not applicable to the
modem on which you are loading the template, will be discarded.
5.2.3 Optional: Applying one template to several modems
simultaneously with AceNet
AceNet allows you to connect to and monitor several modems at the same time.
For your convenience, you can also apply a single template to selected modems
simultaneously.
Connecting to the modems with AceNet is covered in the AceNet User Guide.
Caution: When applying a template in AceNet, it is even more important to make sure there are no
non-general settings in the template from the "master" modem.
Unlike AceManager, AceNet does not check the modem type before applying the
template. Settings not applicable, such as a USB setting from a RLXIC-SV
template being applied to a modem of a different type, are not read by the
receiving modem. You will get a "partial success" status if all items in a template
cannot be applied by the receiving modem.

Note: This section describes general communication options for the RLXIC-SV. For specific
information regarding configuration of the RLXIC-SV for different industrial applications, refer to the
application notes and templates on the RadioLinx CD.
The RLXIC-SV plays the part of a HOST when a computer or another device is
connected directly to its port, and routes data to/from the connected device to the
cellular network.
Tip: If you need to have one-to-many routing, you can connect the RLXIC-SV to a router. The
router would provide the multiple routing, and the RLXIC-SV would provide one-to-one for the
router to the cellular network and the Internet.
As the host, the RLXIC-SV can use different communication modes:
7.1.1 Basic Modes
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
AT: The RLXIC-SV accepts and responds to standard AT commands.
PassThru: Direct connection to internal hardware (OEM Module) of the
RLXIC-SV.
Telnet: The RLXIC-SV auto-answers TCP connections to allow terminal
emulation using either a local USB Ethernet connection or remotely using the
cellular connection.
Tip: By default, the RLXIC-SV is in AT Mode, and allows AT Commands to be entered via terminal
connection (through the local port connection) or remotely (through the cellular network). PassThru
Mode can only be exited by resetting the RLXIC-SV. All serial modes are entered by use of a
startup mode command.
7.1.2 Serial Modes
ƒ
ƒ
PPP Mode: The RLXIC-SV uses PPP to communicate with a device or
computer connected to the serial or USB port.
SLIP Mode: The RLXIC-SV uses SLIP to communicate with a device or
computer connected to the serial or USB port.

and port destined for the Device Port are unwrapped, and sent out the serial
port.
TCP and TCP PAD: Any data received on the serial port is packaged into
TCP messages, and sent to the associated connection's IP address and Port
(described later). Any data received from the TCP peer is unwrapped and
sent out the serial.

network.
Basic Modes
7.2.1 Start up Mode
The serial port of the RLXIC-SV can be configured to enter any of the modes
automatically on power up (in most cases, this is also after it has registered on
the cellular network). This is done by setting the Startup Mode Default to the
desired mode. If this setting is non-zero, the modem will enter the specified mode
after 5 seconds. If you want to cancel this behavior, the ATMD0 command can
be used before the 5-second time-out expires.
You can configure the Startup Mode in AceManager at part of the UDP group.
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
If the serial port of the RLXIC-SV is in any mode other than AT or PassThru,
the AT command mode can be re-entered by:
Deactivating DTR (if &D2 or Ignore DTR, S211, is not set).
Issuing the +++ escape sequence (if Disable AT Escape, DAE, is not set).
Resetting or Power cycling the modem.
Note: DTR needs to be asserted (S211=1 or &D0) by the host before PPP Mode, SLIP Mode, UDP
PAD Mode, or TCP PAD Mode can be entered.

7.2.2 AT Mode
Using a terminal connection, AT commands are used to configure the modem,
command it to do something, or query a setting. For a full listing of the AT
commands, refer to the appendix. AceManager is a graphical user interface for
most AT Commands.
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
AT commands must always be terminated by <CR> (ASCII character 0x0D),
a carriage return (pressing enter on the keyboard). Some may also include a
new line or line feed <LF>.
If E=1 (Echo On), the AT command (including the terminating <carriage
return) will be displayed (output) before any responses.
Two settings affect the format of AT command output: V (Verbose), and Q
(Quiet).
If Q=1 (Quiet On), no result codes are output whatsoever, so there is no
response generated by a (non query) command.
If Q=0 (Quiet Off), result codes are output. The format of this output is then
affected by the Verbose setting.
If Quiet mode is off, the result code is affected as follows:
For V=1 (Verbose mode), the textual result code is surrounded by a carriage
return and new line. Any AT query response is also surrounded by a carriage
return and new line.
For V=0 (Terse mode), a numeric result code is output with a single trailing
carriage return (no new line is output), while any AT query response is followed
by a carriage return and new line (there is no preceding output).
ƒ
For example, possible output to the AT command "AT" with carriage return
(assuming quiet mode is not on) is:
carriage return - if V=0
carriage return and new line OK another carriage return and new line - if V=1
Note: These commands work for the port on which they are executed. For example, if the user
types ATE1, and then AT&W using a serial port connection, it will set the serial port to Echo On.
7.2.3 PassThru Mode
In PassThru mode, the RLXIC-SV does not behave normally, all port
communication is passed directly between the internal hardware and the
computer connected directly to the modem. This mode can be used to configure
hardware-specific settings. For example, provisioning, troubleshooting,
communicating with legacy equipment, etc.
Caution: ALEOS is disabled in PassThru Mode. You cannot use most ALEOS specific commands
while the modem is in PassThru Mode.
Issuing the "AT\APASSTHRU" from a terminal emulation enters this mode. The
modem responds with OK, at which point a direct connection to the internal
hardware is established. You can also configure the modem to enter PassThru
mode on start up using MD.

User Manual
Tip: PassThru can only be exited by resetting or power-cycling the modem. This mode cannot be
entered via a remote Telnet session.
You can configure a string of AT commands to be sent to the RLXIC-SV when it
enters PassThru, and other PassThru settings.
PassThru Mode allows only specific AT commands. Some ALEOS commands
will be unavailable when the RLXIC-SV is in PassThru mode. The commands
usable also depend heavily on the modem model number (found on the label on
the top of the RLXIC-SV).
Note: Some internal hardware requires upwards of 20 seconds before AT commands can be
entered, so be patient if there seems to be no response to AT commands.
7.2.4 Telnet Mode
In AceManager you can configure Telnet operation.
If you need to change the port for Telnet (for example, you have the default port
blocked on your firewall), the option is on the OTHER tab. The default telnet port
is 2332. You can also change the Telnet timeout, if the connection is idle, default
2 minutes.

Serial Modes
7.3.1 PPP
In PPP mode, the RLXIC-SV acts as a PPP server, providing an IP address, and
DNS servers (if available) to the connected device or computer.
PPP mode is entered from the AT mode by using any of the following
commands:
ƒ AT\APPP
ƒ ATDT10.0.0.1
ƒ ATDT10001
ƒ ATD#19788 or #777 *99***1#
ƒ CLIENT
In response to any of the preceding commands, the RLXIC-SV will respond with
CONNECT a carriage return and new line and is ready for the host to begin PPP
negotiations. The IP received by the host in the resulting negotiation will either be
a private (non-routable) IP address or a public (network-routable) IP address
provided by the network, depending on the settings of *HOSTPRIVMODE. If
*HOSTPRIVMODE=1, the value of the private IP address can be determined
beforehand by querying S110. The private IP address to be used can be defined
with the command AT*HOSTPRIVIP=192.168.100.33, substituting the desired IP
address.
Using a private IP insulates the PPP client from changes in IP addresses of the
underlying network. The will perform basic NAT-like address translation on all
packets.
If a public IP address is being used, any changes in the IP (as determined by the
wireless network) will result in the PPP link to the host being disconnected,
requiring the host to reinitiate it. The public IP is passed to the host in the PPP
negotiations, so when the network forces a change, the modem has to force the
host to renegotiate the PPP link to make this happen.

User Manual
7.3.2 SLIP
SLIP mode is entered be using the "AT\ASLIP" command. As in PPP Mode, the
IP address that the host assumes is affected by the setting of
*HOSTPRIVMODE. SLIP does not negotiate the IP address with the connected
device or computer, so before making a SLIP connection, the SLIP driver on that
device or computer must be configured to use the IP address specified by
querying S110.
ƒ
When the modem is in UDP PAD (Packet Assembly and Disassembly) Mode,
all characters received on the serial port are assembled into UDP packets,
and sent to the remote IP address/port or the RLXIC-SV, and any packets
received from the same IP/port-destined for the device port of RLXIC-SV (see
*DPORT)--are disassembled, and dumped onto the serial line.
A UDP session is initiated by one of the following events:
ƒ
ƒ
Using the Dial UDP (DP) AT command (example, ATDP192.168.3.23/3456).
Setting the Startup Mode Default (MD) to 3 (UDP) so that a UDP session is
entered automatically when the modem registers onto the network. Serial
data will be sent to the IP/port specified in S53.
Incoming UDP packets will be processed out the serial port if
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
UDP auto answer is enabled (S82=2);
The destination IP address matches that in S53 (if Friends Mode is enabled,
the IP address also needs to be present on the Friends List);
Or allow any IP is set (AIP=1);
The modem is in AT mode (not in a current UDP or TCP session).
UDP packet assembly is affected by the values of S50 (PAD Forwarding Timeout) and S51 (PAD Forwarding Character). Data received in the serial buffer will
be transmitted when the idle inter-character time-out specified in S50 (in tenths of
seconds) occurs or when a character is received that matches S51 (if non-zero).
7.3.3 UDP Auto Answer
UDP auto answer (previously called UDP half-open) is set with S82=2. When set,
the RLXIC-SV will automatically establish a UDP session to the source IP
address, and port of the UDP packet received. The RLXIC-SV will remain
"locked" to this one remote IP/port until no data is sent or received for the time
interval defined in the UDP auto answer time-out (S83). During this session,
packets from other IP/port addresses will be rejected, unless *UALL is set.
Whether or not an incoming packet will cause the modem to enter a UDP session
is always dependent on the S53 and AIP settings.
The Normal UDP Mode (MD3) can be combined with UDP auto answer to cause
the incoming serial data to be sent in UDP packets (instead of being treated as
AT commands), while allowing sessions to be established from different UDP
sources. A UDP session will be initiated either by incoming serial data or by an
incoming UDP packet. The session, started by either method, will be terminated
when no data has been sent or received for the S82 period. After the session
terminates, another may be initiated by either means.

RLXIC-SV ♦ Intelligent Cellular
User Manual
RadioLinx Intelligent Cellular Serial Modem for the Verizon Wireless CDMA Network
When idle, after the time-out has occurred, the modem is in AT command mode
on the serial port, and any valid AT command may be entered during this time.
Tip: It is best to ensure the idle time-outs for TCP and UDP are never 0 if you're going to be using
auto-answer, or either PAD mode. In those circumstances, you will want the modem to close the
socket if the connection goes idle for too long, particularly if the other side does not normally close
the connection.
When the session is initiated by serial data, the new session will be established
using the destination address specified in S53. The S53 setting can be changed
if the connect to last UDP setting (*UDPLAST=1) is set. The address in S53 will
be updated to reflect the address of the last session initiated by an incoming
UDP packet. So that when new data is received over the host serial port while in
the idle state, a session will be re-established with the last address. (This
behavior is the same as the previous Hybrid2 (MD6) mode).
Tip: TCP auto answer (S0) may also be set simultaneously with UDP auto answer. Then, when in
the idle state, the modem will accept either a TCP or UDP incoming packet, and enter a TCP or
UDP session as appropriate.
Reliable UDP
Reliable UDP adds a simple protocol on top of UDP to provide reliable delivery of
data. When data is received from the host serial port, a 2 byte header is added to
the data, containing a message type and a sequence number. The RLXIC-SV will
continue to send this data (buffering any received data in the meantime) until it
receives an acknowledgement with this sequence number. If an
acknowledgement is not received within the time-out period (specified in S7), the
data will be retransmitted. This will continue until an acknowledgement is
received or the modem is reset. Likewise any UDP packets received by the
RLXIC-SV are expected to have this simple header. The RLXIC-SV will issue an
acknowledgement for any valid packets which are received.
To configure the RLXIC-SV for a normal UDP session, you need to set the
Startup Mode Default to 73 (ATMD73). If you are using two modems, configure
the Destination IP and Port in each to point to each other. Serial data will then be
sent reliably between the two.
Caution: Although it adds reliability, the simple implementation of the Reliable UDP mode in the
RLXIC-SV does not check for duplicate packets.

UDP Multicast Mode
UDP Multicast mode results in any data received from the host serial port being
sent to all the clients in the address list. The remote port number is taken from
S53. To avoid flooding the network, the packets are sent to each client with a
20ms pause in between. The receipt of UDP packets works as in normal UDP
mode (that is, bound by the value S53 and/or AIP). Because it may take a while
to transmit the data to all hosts (especially if all 20 Modbus entries are used and
name resolutions are required), new data received from the host port is buffered
until current transmissions to all hosts are finished.
Enter the list of target IPs in the address list (ADDR LIST). The index numbers in
the list are not used. Configure for a normal UDP session. Set the Startup Mode
Default to 83 (ATMD83). Configure the Destination port to match the device port
of the remote modems.
7.3.4 TCP and TCP Pad
When the RLXIC-SV is in a TCP session, all characters received on the serial
port are assembled into TCP packets, and sent to the mode's remote IP
address/port, and any packets received from the remote end of the TCP
connection are disassembled, and dumped onto the serial line.
A TCP connection is established by one of the following methods:
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
Using the Dial TCP (DT) AT command. For example,
ATDT192.168.3.23/3456.
TCP auto answer is enabled (S1), a TCP connection request is received, and
the modem is not in a data session.
Data is received on the serial port, and
o The Startup Mode Default (MD) is 4 (auto TCP)
o The remote TCP destination, as defined in S53, successfully responds to
the TCP connection request.
The value of S7 (TCP Connection Time-out) specifies the number of seconds to
wait, after initiating a TCP connection attempt, for a successful connection to be
established. If the connection has not been successfully established before the
time-out occurs, ERROR/BUSY is returned.
TCP packet assembly is affected by the values of S50 (PAD Forwarding Timeout) and S51 (PAD Forwarding Character). Data received in the serial buffer will
be transmitted when the idle inter-character time-out specified in S50 (in tenths of
seconds) occurs or when a character is received that matches S51 (if non-zero).
The TCP session will be terminated if no data is transmitted or received for the
time interval specified in TCPT and TCPS. TCPT is the number of minutes
(TCPS=0) or seconds (TCPS=1) used for this idle time-out.
Caution: TCPT should never be 0 when using the TCP mode. A broken TCP session can result in
the modem being left with a TCP Auto Answer

TCP auto answer (S0=1|2) also allows a TCP connection request to be
"answered" when the modem is idle, not in a data session. The TCP connection
request's destination port has to match the modem's device port.
Note: UDP auto answer may also be set simultaneously with TCP auto answer. Then, when in the
idle state, the modem will accept either a TCP connection request or UDP incoming packet, and
enter a TCP or UDP session as appropriate.
7.3.5 Hybrid Mode
Hybrid modes are supported mainly for legacy implementations. Some previous
hybrid modes (MD=5, 6) are no longer implemented as special, unique modes.
Now that UDP auto answer (UDP Half-open, S82=2) can be enabled in
conjunction with UDP PAD mode (MD3), effectively this is the same as MD5 and
MD6 previously accomplished. Setting MD5 and MD6 are still supported, but not
recommended.

Data Communication
Note: The RLXIC-SV forwards messages to and from the cellular network for only ONE device per
port. The RLXIC-SV is a one-to-one gateway, and does not have advanced routing features
required to do one-to-many routing.
The primary purpose of the RLXIC-SV is to forward data from a single device
connected to one of the ports to the cellular network, and, ultimately, under most
circumstances, to the Internet in a one-to-one gateway configuration.
When the RLXIC-SV obtains its IP address from your cellular provider, it also
obtains the network routing information necessary to forward messages to their
routers which can then forward on from there. The RLXIC-SV then acts as a
router for the device connected to it, forwarding to or from the cellular network.
Note: If you have a device connected to the serial port and the USB port, they will not be able to
communicate to each other. Each port is routed separately to the cellular network with one-to-one
routing for each.

RadioLinx Intelligent Cellular Serial Modem for the Verizon Wireless CDMA Network
User Manual
7.4.1 Public and Private Mode
In Public Mode, the RLXIC-SV will pass the IP address assigned by the cellular
network to the device connected to its port. Public Mode is the default mode for
the RLXIC-SV.
If you need more control over which gateway address, device address, and
netmask that is given out by the internal DHCP server, you can use the private
host mode, *HOSTPRIVMODE, and set the internal network IP addresses. The
RLXIC-SV will use NAT to forward packets to the end device.
Tip: When using Public mode, ProSoft Technology recommends connecting the modem directly to
the computer or other end device. Using a hub or switch may prevent the RLXIC-SV from updating
the IP address of the end device when an IP address is received from the cellular network.
In AceManager, the Private mode settings are part of the PPP/Ethernet group.
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
*HOSTPRIVMODE - Set to 1 to enable the explicit IP addresses.
*HOSTPRIVIP - Set to the IP address you want the RLXIC-SV to give to your
device.
DHCP network Mask - The subnet mask that is passed to the DHCP client
on the Host device.
*HOSTPEERIP - Set to the IP address you want for the RLXIC-SV.
*HOSTNETMASK - Set to the subnetmask, generally 255.255.255.0.
Tip: If you are using Private Mode (*HOSTPRIVMODE=1), you will need to make sure that
*HOSTPRIVIP and *HOSTPEERIP are on the same subnet. If the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0, it
is safe to use 192.168.x.y for each as long as the x is the same number (0 in the example screen
shot above), and the y is different (1 and 2 in the example), and between 0 and 254.
Note: Regardless if the RLXIC-SV is configured for Public Mode or Private Mode, the same IP
address will be given to all devices connected to any of the ports. While you can connect with each
to the cellular network and the Internet, you cannot use the RLXIC-SV as a hub or router to
communicate between them.
Internal DHCP Server
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) has become a primary component
of today's network environments. DHCP allows one server to automatically and
dynamically allocate network IP addresses, and other network related settings
(such as subnet masks, routers, etc.) to each computer or device without the
need to set up each specifically or keep track of what addresses have already
been used.

In a default configuration, the RLXIC-SV acts as a DHCP host to any device
connected to its ports, providing that device with an IP address which can be
used to communicate on the Internet. In Public Mode, that will be the IP address
assigned by the cellular network. In Private Mode, that will be the IP address
defined in *HOSTPRIVIP.
1
2
3
When the RLXIC-SV registers on the cellular network, it is assigned an IP
address from your cellular provider, for example, 10.1.2.0.
Acting as a DHCP server, in Public Mode, when the RLXIC-SV receives a
DHCP request from an Ethernet device connected via USB, it hands off the
assigned address to the device, and sets up the default gateway address as
10.1.2.1. If the fourth octet is already a 1, it assigns 10.1.2.2 as the router
address.
The RLXIC-SV also sends a /24 netmask (255.255.255.0 by default), and
sets up a static route which maps 192.168.13.31 (or the address configured
with *HOSTPEERIP if it is changed) to 10.1.2.1 (or 10.1.2.2 if that was what
the gateway address was given as).
Tip: When PPPoE is used with the RLXIC-SV, DHCP is not needed. A tunnel is set up connecting
a device (such as your computer or a router) with the modem. The device will then simply use the
MAC address of the RLXIC-SV to send all outgoing packets.
Additional Connected Networks
If you have a router connected to the RLXIC-SV with additional networks
configured behind that router, you can specify them in the PPP/Ethernet group of
AceManager. Configure the Network the Host Network Mask for up to two
additional networks.
7.4.2 Basic Routing
Expanding the capabilities of the RLXIC-SV, ALEOS features some basic routing
to connected computers and networks.
Port Forwarding
Any data coming in on the defined Public Port will be passed to the
corresponding Private Port connected to the physical interface specified and
using the host IP address.

User Manual
The RLXIC-SV can provide a basic firewall between the public and private
networks. There are two types of firewall rules supported by the RLXIC-SV, IP
filtering and port filtering.
ƒ
IP Filtering: When enabled, only packets with source IP addresses matching
those in a list or range of trusted hosts will be allowed through.
o Friends List IP: Each entry can be configured to allow a single IP address,
for example 64.100.100.2, or the IP addresses from a complete subnet,
such as 64.100.10.255 allowing all IP addresses from 64.100.10.0 to
64.100.10.255.
o Non-Friends Port Forwarding: Non-Friends port forwarding is like an allow
rule for any of the forwarded ports. If it is enabled, the port forwarding
rules apply to all incoming packets. If it is disabled, only Friends List IPs
get through.
o Start and End Range: Specify the IP address range that is allowed
access, for example 64.100.10.2 to start and 64.100.10.15 to end would
allow 64.100.10.5 but would not allow 64.100.10.16.
Note: Port Filtering Mode does not require to be set when you enable Non-Friends Port
Forwarding.
ƒ

7.5
Port Filtering Mode: Independent of the IP filtering, this mode can be
enabled to block ports specified or allow ports specified. When enabled, all
ports not matching the rule will be allowed or blocked depending on the
mode.
Firewall Port: Specify the port you wish to have blocked or allowed,
depending on the mode configured.
Packet Filtering: Not available at this time.
Keepalive
Keepalive is used to test the connection to the cellular network by pinging an IP
address after a specified period of inactivity. Keepalive is only recommended for
users who have a remote terminated modem that infrequently communicates to
the network or if you have experienced issues over time where the modem can
no longer be reached remotely.
When Keepalive pings the IP address, an acknowledgement indicates there is an
active connection to the network. If the RLXIC-SV does not receive a response
from the IP address, it will make additional attempts according to a backoff
algorithm before determining the Internet connection is not functioning properly. If
it determines the connection is not functioning, the modem will then attempt to
reconnect to your cellular provider to reestablish IP connectivity.

Keepalive is an optional feature. If you frequently pass data with your modem,
you most likely do not need to have Keepalive enabled. When using Keepalive,
be aware that a ping moves approximately 66 bytes of data over the network,
and is billable by your cellular provider. The following *IPPING settings will incur
approximate monthly data usage in addition to any other data usage:

If you have a fleet of RLXIC modems or even if you only have one, it can be
difficult to keep track of the current IP addresses, especially if the addresses are
not static but change every time the modems connect to Provider. If you need to
connect to a modem, or the device behind it, it is so much easier when you have
a domain name.
8.1.1 Reasons to contact the modem and/or the connected device:
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
Requesting a location update from a delivery truck.
Contacting a surveillance camera to download logs or survey a specific area.
An oil derrick that needs to be triggered to begin pumping.
Sending text to be displayed by a road sign.
Updating the songs to be played on a juke box.
Updating advertisements to be displayed in a cab.
Remote access to a computer, a PLC, an RTU, or other system.
Monitoring and troubleshooting the status of the modem itself without needing
to bring it in or go out to it.
A dynamic IP address is suitable for many Internet activities such as web
browsing, looking up data on another computer system, data only being sent out,
or data only being received after an initial request (also called Mobile Originated).
However, if you need to contact RLXIC-SV directly, a device connected to the
modem, or a host system using your RLXIC-SV (also called Mobile Terminated),
a dynamic IP will not give you a reliable address to contact (because it may have
changed since the last time it was assigned).
Domain names are often only connected to static IP addresses because of the
way most domain name (DNS) servers are set-up. Dynamic DNS servers require
notification of IP Address changes so they can update their DNS records, and
link a dynamic IP address to the correct name.
ƒ
ƒ
Dynamic IP addresses are granted only when your RLXIC-SV is connected,
and can change each time the modem reconnects to the network.
Static IP addresses are granted the same address every time your RLXIC-SV
is connected, and are not in use when your modem is not connected.

RadioLinx Intelligent Cellular Serial Modem for the Verizon Wireless CDMA Network
IP Manager
User Manual
Because many cellular providers, like wire-based ISPs, do not offer static IP
addresses or static address accounts cost a premium vs. dynamic accounts, IP
Manager works with a Dynamic DNS server to receive notification from RLXIC
modems to translate the modem's dynamic IP address to a fully qualified domain
name. Thus, you can contact your RLXIC-SV directly from the Internet using a
domain name.
8.2
Understanding Domain Names
A domain name is a name of a server or device on the Internet which is
associated with an IP address. Similar to how the street address of your house is
one way to contact you and your phone number is another, both the IP address
and the domain name can be used to contact a server or device on the Internet.
While contacting you at your house address or with your phone number employ
different methods, using a domain name instead of the IP address actually uses
the same method, just a word based name is commonly easier to remember for
most people than a string of numbers.
Understanding the parts of a domain name can help to understand how IP
Manager works, and what you need to be able to configure the modem. A fully
qualified domain name (FQDN) generally has several parts.
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
Top Level Domain (TLD): The TLD is the ending suffix for a domain name
(.com, .net, .org, etc.)
Country Code Top Level Domain (ccTLD): This suffix is often used after the
TLD for most countries except the US (.ca, .uk, .au, etc.)
Domain name: This is the name registered with ICANN (Internet Corporation
for Assigned Names and Numbers) or the registry for a the country of the
ccTLD (that is, if a domain is part of the .ca TLD, it would be registered with
the Canadian domain registry). It is necessary to have a name registered
before it can be used.
Sub-domain or server name: A domain name can have many sub-domain
or server names associated with it. Sub-domains need to be registered with
the domain, but do not need to be registered with ICANN or any other
registry. It is the responsibility of a domain to keep track of its own subs.
server123.example.com
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
.com is the TLD
example is the domain (usually noted as example.com, because the domain is
specific to the TLD)
server123 is the subdomain or server name associated with the device,
computer, or modem registered with example.com.
server123.example.com.ca
This would be the same as above, but with the addition of the country code. In
this example, the country code (.ca) is for Canada.

User Manual
RLXIC-SV ♦ Intelligent Cellular
RadioLinx Intelligent Cellular Serial Modem for the Verizon Wireless CDMA Network
Tip: A URL (Universal Resource Locator) is different from a domain name in that it also indicates
information on the protocol used by a web browser to contact that address, such as www.prosofttechnology.com. www.prosoft-technology.com is a fully qualified domain name, but the http://, the
protocol identifier, is what makes the whole thing a URL.
8.3
Dynamic Names
When an IP address is not expected to change, the DNS server can indicate to
all queries that the address can be cached and not looked up for a long period of
time. Dynamic DNS servers, conversely, have a short caching period for the
domain information to prevent other Internet sites or queries from using the old
information. Because the IP address of a modem with a dynamic account can
change frequently, if the old information was used (such as with a DNS server
which indicates the address can be cached for a long period of time) when the IP
address changed, the domain would no longer point to the new and correct IP
address of the modem.
If your RLXIC-SV is configured for Dynamic IP, when it first connects to the
Internet, it sends a IP change notification to IP Manager. IP Manager will
acknowledge the change, and update the Dynamic DNS server. The new IP
address will then be the address for your modem's configured name.
After your modem's IP address has been updated in IP Manager, it can be
contacted via name. If the IP address is needed, you can use the domain name
to determine the IP address.
Note: The fully qualified domain name of your RLXIC-SV will be a subdomain of the domain used
by the IP Manager server.
8.4
Using IP Manager with your RLXIC-SV
To allow your RadioLinx modem to be addressed by name, the modem needs to
have a minimum of three elements configured. You can also configure a second
dynamic server as a backup, secondary, or alternate server.
In AceManager, select DYNAMIC IP.

8.5
Understanding DNS
The RLXIC-SV has the ability to query DNS servers in order to translate domain
names into IP addresses. This allows you to use domain names in place of IP
addresses for most of the configuration options requiring IP addresses. This is
important if your RLXIC-SV will need to contact another modem or other device
that has a domain name but an unknown or dynamic IP address (such as
another remote RLXIC-SV using IP Manager).
8.5.1 Configuring DNS
Generally, when your RLXIC-SV receives its IP address from Provider as part of
the connection process, it will also receive the DNS servers to use for resolving
(or translating) names to IP addresses which it will automatically configure in the
modem settings. Unless your RLXIC-SV will be used on a network with other
modems or devices which have names internal to the local network or frequently
changing IP addresses, the DNS servers provided by Provider should be all you
need.
If the RLXIC-SV will be communicating with a device that has a domain name but
changes its IP address frequently (such as another RadioLinx modem using IP
Manager) or is on a network where devices are accessed by names rather than
IP addresses, you will want to put in an alternate DNS (*DNSUSER) where that
domain is updated, such as the IP Manager server the remote modem is using or
the listing of IP addresses to names is kept.
If you need to manually configure DNS, in AceManager, select DNS.

computer). If *DNSUSER is set to 0.0.0.0, it will be ignored.
8.5.2 The "PPP-Peer" Domain Name
The RLXIC-SV uses the unqualified domain name of "ppp-peer" when it is in
PPP or SLIP address mode to resolve the address of the device or computer
connected via PPP or SLIP address. If the RLXIC-SV is not in PPP or SLIP
address mode, "ppp-peer" will resolve to 0.0.0.0.

9.1
Modbus Overview
The Modbus Protocol, developed by Modicon in 1979, provides for client-server
(also referred to as master-slave) communications between intelligent devices.
As a de facto standard, it is the most widely used network protocol in the
industrial manufacturing environment to transfer discrete/analog I/O and register
data between control devices. Modbus, BSAP, and other Modbus variations are
often used in conjunction with telemetry devices.
Tip: This section is just a brief overview of Modbus. For more information, refer to your Modbus
equipment distributor or manufacturer or http://www.modbus.org.
9.1.1 Telemetry
Telemetry is an automated communications process by which data is collected
from instruments located at remote or inaccessible points, and transmitted to
receiving equipment for measurement, monitoring, display, and recording. Transmission of the information may be over physical pairs of wires,
telecommunication circuits, radios or satellite.
9.1.2 Remote Terminal Unit (RTU)
Modbus was originally designed to be used in a radio environment where
packets are broadcast from a central station (also called master or host) to a
group of remote units. Each remote unit, Remote Terminal Unit (RTU), has a
hexadecimal identification number (ID). The first part of the broadcast packet
contains an RTU ID which corresponds to the ID of one of the remote units. The
Modbus host looks for the ID, and sends to only the unit with the matching ID.
The RTU would then reply back to the central station.

to monitor and control distributed systems from a master location. SCADA
encompasses multiple RTUs, a central control room with a host computer (or
network), and some sort of communication infrastructure.
SCADA allows for "supervisory" control of remote devices as well as acquiring
data from the remote locations. Programmable Logic Controllers allow for a
higher degree of automated SCADA.
9.1.4 Programmable Logic Controller (PLC)
A Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) is a small industrial computer which
generally monitors several connected sensor inputs, and controls attached
devices (motor starters, solenoids, pilot lights/displays, speed drives, valves, etc.)
according to a user-created program stored in its memory. Containing inputs and
outputs similar to an RTU, PLCs are frequently used for typical relay control,
sophisticated motion control, process control, Distributed Control System, and
complex networking.
9.1.5 Modbus TCP/IP
Modbus TCP/IP simply takes the Modbus instruction set and wraps TCP/IP
around it. Because TCP/IP is the communications standard for the Internet and
most networked computers, this provides a simpler installation. Modbus TCP/IP
uses standard Ethernet equipment.
9.1.6 RLXIC Modbus on UDP
When RadioLinx modems are used in place of radios, one RLXIC-SV is
connected to the central station (host) and the other RLXIC-SV is connected to
each remote unit. When the RLXIC-SV is configured for Modbus with UDP, the
RLXIC-SV connected to the host can store a list of IP addresses or names with
matching IDs. When the host at the central station sends serial data as a poll
request, the RLXIC-SV at the host matches the RTU ID to a corresponding IP of
a RLXIC-SV at a remote unit. A UDP packet is assembled encapsulating the
RTU ID and serial data transmitted from the host. The UDP packet is then
transmitted to the specific RLXIC-SV at the remote unit matching the RTU ID.
The remote RLXIC-SV then disassembles the packet before transmitting the
RTU ID and serial data to the remote unit. The remote units operate in normal
UDP mode, and their data is sent to the host via the remote RLXIC-SV and host
RLXIC-SV.

Configuring the RLXIC-SV at the Polling Host for Modbus on UDP
This section covers a Polling Host with standard Modbus, variations may need
additional AT commands.
9.2.1 Configure the listening/device ports
In AceManager, select MISC in the side menu.
The destination port for the modem at the host needs to match the device port
(*DPORT) in use on all the modems at the remote sites. For example, if the
remote modem's device port (*DPORT) is "12345", then the Modbus host
modem's S53 destination port should be set to "12345".
Take note of (or set) the Device Port setting in *DPORT to configure the
destination port on the remote modems.
9.2.2 Configure the default mode for start-up.
In AceManager, select UDP in the side menu. Select the appropriate MD mode

MD33: BSAP
MD63: Variable Modbus - individual parameters are set up manually.
9.2.3 Configure IP addresses for the Modbus IDs.
The last step of configuring the modem at the host is setting the IDs to their
specific IPs. In AceManager, select the menu option ADDR LIST.
Addresses can be entered in decimal or hex. AceManager will translate hex
entries into decimal. The number before the "=" is ID, the number after is the IP
address. There can be a total of 100 remote ID/Local addresses entered into the
modem.
When using AT commands via telnet or direct serial connection, use ATMLIST
for decimal IDs, and ATMLISTX for hexadecimal. For example, if the ID is 27,
and the IP is 123.123.123.124, you would enter it as
ATMLIST27=123.123.123.124 or ATMLISTX1B=123.123.123.124.
9.2.4 Optional: Dynamic IP Address
If you do not have a static IP, the host modem should be configured to report its
current IP to a Dynamic DNS (DDNS) server with IP Manager.
In the Host modem's configuration, instead of IP address for the Addr List
(ATMLIST or ATMLISTX), substitute a single unique name for each modem, that
is, remote1, remote2, etc.
When you configure IP Manager for the host modem, make note of your modem
name and domain setting in AceManager in the menu selection DYNAMIC IP to be
used with the remote modems.

With names instead of IP addresses for the Address List, the host modem will
query the DNS server for the current IP address assigned to the specific name of
a remote modem to send a message corresponding to the ID.
When you use names instead of IP addresses, to ensure your modems are

the DNS settings as well. In AceManager, select DNS.
Configure *DNSUSER to the same IP address as the IP Manager

The destination port for the modem at the host needs to match the device port in
use on all the modems at the remote sites. For example, if the remote modem's
device port (see below) is "12345", then the Modbus host modem's S53
destination port should be set to "12345".
Set the destination port (S53) to match the device port of the host modem
(*DPORT). Make sure the device port of the remote modem (*DPORT) matches
the destination port of the host modem (S53).
9.3.2 Configure IP addresses for the host.
If the Host modem has a static IP address, enter it in the Destination Address for
S53.
Note: With a name instead of IPs for the host modem, the remote modems will query the DNS
server for the current IP assigned to the host modem before sending data back to the host.
If the modem at the host has a dynamic IP, and is using IP Manager, instead of
an IP address for S53, specify the name of the host modem (*MODEMNAME). If
the remote modems are using a different DDNS than the host modem, you will
need to specify the fully qualified domain name (*MODEMNAME+*DOMAIN).
Note: Setting the Host modem IP address as the S53 Destination Address provides a low level
security. The modem will not forward UDP traffic unless the source IP/port matches what is in S53.
However, if you set *AIP=1, the modem will forward UDP traffic from any source IP address as long
as it is accessing the modem on the configured *DPORT.
9.3.3 Configure the default mode for start-up.
Each modem at the remote locations will need to be configured to communicate
with the modem at the host. In AceManager, select UDP in the side menu.

10 SNMP : Simple Network Management Protocol
In This Chapter
™
SNMP Configuration.............................................................................. 90
™
SNMP MIB Definition Sample................................................................ 92
The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) was designed to allow
remote management and monitoring of a variety of devices from a central
location. The SNMP management system is generally composed of agents (such
as your RLXIC-SV, a router, a UPS, a web server, a file server, or other
computer equipment), and a Network Management Station (NMS) which
monitors all the agents on a specific network. Using the management information
base (MIB), an NMS can include reporting, network topology mapping, tools to
allow traffic monitoring and trend analysis, and device monitoring.
Authentication ensures SNMP messages coming from the agent, such as the
RLXIC-SV, have not been modified, and the agent may not be queried by
unauthorized users. SNMPv3 uses a User-Based Security Model (USM) to
authenticate, and, if desired or supported, message encryption. USM uses a user
name and password specific to each device.
The RLXIC-SV can be configured as an SNMP agent, and supports SNMPv2c
and SNMPv3.
10.1.1 Management Information Base (MIB)
The management information base (MIB) is a type of database used to compile
the information from the various SNMP agents. Reports from various agents,
such as the RLXIC-SV, are sent as data in form designed to be parsed by the
NMS into its MIB. The data is hierarchical with entries addressed through object
identifiers.
10.1.2 SNMP Traps
SNMP traps are alerts that can be sent from the managed device to the Network
Management Station when an event happens. Your RLXIC-SV is capable of
sending the linkUp trap when the network connection becomes available.

10.2
SNMP Configuration
To configure your RLXIC-SV to work as an SNMP agent, you can use either
AceManager, or a terminal connection to configure the modem using AT
commands. In AceManager, the SNMP commands are all part of the Other
group under the Common group.
There are only three commands to set for SNMP in the RLXIC-SV: the listening
port, the security level, and the trap destination.
10.2.1 Listening Port
*SNMPPORT sets the port for the SNMP agent to listen on. If set to zero, default,
SNMP is disabled.
Tip: SNMP generally uses port 161, however most Internet providers (including cellular) block all
ports below 1024 as a security measure. You should be able to use a higher numbered port such
as 10161.
10.2.2 Security Level
*SNMPSECLVL sets the security level and which version of SNMP
communications are used.
ƒ
ƒ
ƒ
0 - No security required. SNMPv2c and SMNPv3 communications are
allowed.
1 - Authentication required. SNMPv3 is required to do authentication, and
SNMPv2c transmissions will be silently discarded. Authentication is
equivalent to the authNoPriv setting in SNMPv3.
2 - Authentication required, and messages are encrypted. SNMPv3 is
required to do authentication. SNMPv2c, and SNMPv3 authNoPriv
transmissions will be silently discarded. Authentication and encryption is
equivalent to the authPriv setting in SNMPv3.

10.2.3 User Name and Password
The user name is "user". The user name cannot be changed. The RLXIC-SV's
password is used as the SNMP password (default is "12345").
To change the password in the RLXIC-SV, select Modem from the top menu line
in AceManager.
The current password will be pre-entered. As you type the new password and
confirm it, the characters you type will be obscured by "x". For the password, you
can use numbers, letters, and/or punctuation.
Caution: The password is case sensitive. "drowssaP" is not the same as "drowssap".
10.2.4 Trap Destination
*SNMPTRAPDEST needs to be set with the destination IP and port. If either are
set to zero or empty, SNMP traps are disabled.
Note: Traps are sent out according to the SNMP security level (that is, if the security level is 2,
traps will be authenticated and encrypted). Currently, the only trap supported is LinkUp.
10.2.5 Community String
The community string can be configured using *SNMPCOMMUNITY. The default
is "public".

method=T : Establish a TCP connection
method=N : Establish a Telnet connection
d.d.d.d= IP address to contact
ppppp= port to contact
Examples:
ATD - Dial (establish) default connection.
ATDP192.168.13.31/2332 - Dial (establish) UDP session to 192.168.13.31, at
port 2332.
To end the connection, issue the +++ escape sequence or drop the DTR line (if
Ignore DTR S211=0 or &D2). The default connection is set in S53.
If the method, IP address, or port is omitted, the values from S53 are used. If a
telnet connection is requested (N), and the port is not supplied, port 23 will be
used instead of the value from S53.
If a domain name is specified, the "@" symbol can be used to explicitly indicate
the start of the name. For example, if ATDPHONY is issued, this will be
interpreted as dial a UDP connection to "HONY". To dial using the default
method to host "PHONY", one would issue ATD@PHONY.
Several special dialing numbers exist to make it easy to establish a PPP or SLIP
connection with the modem. ATD#19788 or ATDT#19788 will establish a PPP
connection (see \APPP) and ATDT#7547 will establish a SLIP connection (see
\ASLIP).
Tip: The source port of the session is the Device Port (set by S110 or *DPORT).

11.3.8 PassThru
PassThru Mode is used to communicate directly to the RLXIC-SV internal
hardware.
Caution: While the modem is in PassThru mode, ALEOS is disabled. If you need to connect to the
RLXIC-SV while it is in PassThru mode, you will need to do so with a terminal application. Not all
commands are available while the modem is in PassThru mode.
\APASSTHRU
Note: This mode is not available through the remote AT telnet server. You will need to connect to
the RLXIC-SV with it connected directly to your computer.
Sets the modem operation to pass through mode. This mode will pass any
characters received on the port Ethernet directly to the internal hardware module
and output any characters from the internal hardware module out the port
Ethernet. This allows direct access/configuration of the hardware module. After
this mode is entered, the unit must be physically reset to return to normal
operation. This command is not available in AceManager.
Note: It may take up to 30 seconds for the hardware module to respond after CONNECT is output.

11.3.9 SMTP
SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) is the de facto standard for email
transmission across the Internet. The RLXIC-SV can send messages using
SMTP if it has been configured to use a mail server.
Note: You cannot send an Email with your RLXIC-SV unless the Email server you have configured
allows your RLXIC-SV as a relay host. Talk to your network administrator to ensure you can send
email through the email server using your RLXIC-SV.
SMS (Short Message Service) is another way to send messages via the cellular
network. Most SMS commands require the modem to be in PassThru mode.
Note: SMS may not be supported by your account with your cellular carrier.

For example, if Range 1 Start was set to 192.168.13.50 and the Range 1 End
was set to 192.68.13.95, then the IP address of 192.168.13.100 would not be
allowed because it would be outside of the range; but 192.168.13. 75 would be
allowed.
Port Filtering Mode allows only the defined user ports and can block other ports.
Port filtering can be configured to block connections on the specified ports
(Blocked Ports), allow connections only on the specified ports (Allowed Ports), or
not block or allow based on ports (Not Used). Each specified port will be allowed
or blocked depending on the Port Filtering Mode.
Note: The Port Filtering is in addition to any port blocking or allowing done by the cellular provider.
If the port is blocked by the cellular carrier, setting it for allowed here will have no effect, because
the connection would be blocked before even reaching the RLXIC-SV.
