Guidance to Load the Emergency Firmware
If there was a power loss or an accidental activation of the reset button during a small time period while Quadro is updating
its firmware, or if Quadro tried to boot ten times without being able to finish the booting process, Quadro might have no valid
firmware any more. Ongoing alternating blinking of the Fault LED (red) and the Info LED (yellow) indicate this status.
To solve the problem, a special emergency firmware called - depending on the Quadro model - XX-SW.bin is stored on the
Quadro CD within the directory of the TFTP server. This stopgap firmware enables your Quadro to boot again, but
Please Note: A factory reset will be executed, too and all non-stored voice mails and the individual configuration of Quadro
will be lost! So after the stopgap firmware is loaded successfully and Quadro is accessible again, you have to update Quadro
using the desired valid firmware and to reload the configuration (that you hopefully stored in a configuration file, before the
case of emergency occurred).

To load this Emergency Firmware on your Quadro, you have to:
1.
Connect the Admin PC to Quadro's LAN port directly.
2.
Assign the IP address 172.30.0.100 with the net mask 255.255.0.0 to that
Admin PC. Antecede as follows:
a. Click the Start button. Choose Settings, then Control Panel.
b. Double-click on the Network Connection icon to bring up the
correspondent window. Select Local Area Connection with the right
mouse button and select Properties.

d. Please make first a note of the displayed values in that window
to make sure, that you will be able to reconfigure your PC properly
after having finished the emergency firmware procedure.
e. Then select Use the following IP address and enter
172.30.0.100 into the text field IP address and 255.255.0.0 into
the text field Subnet mask. Click OK to finish this step.
3.
Click the button
on the page that is displayed first from the CD to start loading the
emergency firmware and the picture shown on the right will be
displayed:
Base Directory requires the path of the TFTP folder stored on the
Quadro-CD.
Server interfaces requires the IP address of the admin PC:
172.30.0.100
Current Action shows the port number, the server is listening on. It
must be 69.
Please Note: The emergency firmware is loaded automatically to
the Quadro device.
The red Fault LED and the yellow Busy LED will stop blinking alternately
and start blinking in parallel. This shows that Quadro has accepted the
emergency firmware and is loading it. After a few seconds, Quadro will
boot, indicated as follows: The red Fault LED will glow for a few seconds,
then the yellow Info LED will glow for another few seconds while the
green Busy LED is jittering. As soon as the yellow Info LED extinguishes,
the boot sequence has been completed successfully.
Now, you may reach your Quadro again entering its default IP address
(172.30.0.1) into the address field of your Internet browser.
4.
Update your Quadro with the desired firmware-version again, see Manual I - Administrator's Guide, chapter
Firmware Update.
5.
Upload your individual configuration (if stored), see Manual I - Administrator's Guide, chapter Configuration
Management.
