4 Connecting the TAC Xenta 527-NPR to Your Network
Using a Direct Connection to I/NET
The Xenta 527-NPR is intended for use on an Ethernet LAN. However,
you can also directly connect an I/NET host workstation to the
RS-232 A port on the front of the Xenta 527-NPR. This allows the
directly connected I/NET host to communicate with devices on the
Xenta 527-NPR’s controller LAN. This type of connection can also be
used when you are configuring the Xenta 527-NPR’s communication
parameters.
In order to directly connect an I/NET host workstation to the Xenta 527NPR, you must connect a cable from the workstation’s serial COM port
to the Xenta 527-NPR’s RS-232 B port. TAC Xenta Programming
Serial Kit 007309200 provides that adapters and cables required for this
type of connection, as well as for a console connection. to the Xenta
527-NPR’s RS-232 B port.
Once you have connected an I/NET host workstation to Xenta 527NPR, set I/NET’s link type to “NetPlus Router” in the I/NET Configuration editor. Refer to TCON298, I/NET Seven Getting Started, for complete instructions.

Setting Up I/NET Communications
5.1
Defining I/NET Communication Parameters
In order for the Xenta 527-NPR to communicate with I/NET devices
from across an Ethernet, you must first define some basic communication parameters. For example, I/NET requires that each device communicating at the Ethernet level must have a link address. If I/NET’s
distributed link architecture (DLA) capabilities will not be used, each
device’s link address must be unique.
You can also configure the Xenta 527-NPR to obtain the IP addresses
of remote I/NET hosts from up to eight I/NET reference hosts. A Reference Host is any I/NET host (that is, any workstation, NetPlus Router,
or Xenta 527/527-NPR) that serves as a source of IP addresses. Any
I/NET host attached to an Ethernet LAN can be used as a Reference
Host.
I/NET communication parameters may be entered from a web page or
from the console. You can also enter communication parameters from
the NetPlus Router Configuration editor in I/NET (refer to TCON298,
I/NET Seven Getting Started, for instructions on using this method).
5.1.1
From a Console Window
In order to set I/NET communication parameters from a console window, you will need to attach a serial cable from the computer’s COM
port to the RS-232 B port on the front of the Xenta 527-NPR.
TAC Xenta Programming Serial Kit 007309200 provides the adapters
and cables required for this type of connection.
Once you have connected the Xenta 527-NPR to a PC, you can then use
a terminal emulator such as Windows HyperTerminal to communicate
with the device. Refer to the TAC Xenta 500/700/911/913, Product
Manual for instructions.

5 Setting Up I/NET Communications
TAC Xenta 527-NPR, Product Manual
To define I/NET communication parameters from a console
window
1
After logging into the Xenta 527-NPR, begin entering I/NET communication parameters by typing inethost at the command
line.
The inethost command is only available from the console. The
parameters you define enable the Xenta 527-NPR to communicate
with other devices in the I/NET system.
2
Define an IP Address for each of up to eight reference hosts. If you
define less then eight reference hosts, set the unused fields to
“0.0.0.0”.
3
Assign a Link number (0–99) to the Xenta 527-NPR. Use the following guidelines when assigning the Link number:
•
If the Xenta 527-NPR’s DLA feature will not be used, ensure
that you define a link number that is unique to this device
(that is, no other device on the I/NET network can use the
same link number).
•
If necessary, you can use the same link number as one or more
other NPRs or Xenta 527-NPRs on the I/NET network by
enabling DLA in each device. In this case, use the Site parameter (described below) to assign each device a unique Site
address.
Note
I/NET host workstations do not provide the same distributed link
capabilities as DLA-enabled NPRs and Xenta 527/527-NPRs. You
cannot duplicate a host workstation’s link address in an NPR, Xenta
527/527-NPR, or any other device on the I/NET network.

5 Setting Up I/NET Communications
If necessary, enable distributed link architecture (DLA) functionality in this device by setting DLA to Yes. When using the DLA
feature, remember to define a unique Site number for this device.
Refer to the TCON300, I/NET Seven Technical Reference Guide
for more in-depth information about DLA.
Note
If you disable DLA functionality by changing the DLA option from
Yes to No in a Xenta 527-NPR, ensure that you also change the
Xenta 527-NPR’s Link address to a unique value. Duplicate link
addresses are not supported in devices that have the DLA function disabled.
5
If you enabled DLA in the step above, assign a Site number (0–63)
to this device. Ensure that this number is unique among all NPRs
and Xenta 527/527-NPRs sharing the same Link number. An
I/NET device using a different Link number can duplicate this
device’s Site number without conflict.
If you did not enable the DLA function, you will not be asked to
define a Site number.
6
Enter the Xenta 527-NPR’s Station number (0–63). Use the following guidelines when assigning the Station number:
•
Define a Station number that is unique among all other
devices on the I/NET controller LAN (that is, no two devices
on a single controller LAN can use the same Station number).
•
The Station number can be the same as that of a device
attached to another controller LAN. For example, the NPR at
Site 2 of a distributed link can have the same station number
as any device at Site 1 of the distributed link.
7
Set the CLan Baudrate at which the Xenta 527-NPR will communicate with devices on the I/NET controller LAN. Ensure you set
this parameter to match the communication speed of all other
devices on the controller LAN.
8
Set the UDP Port number to any value from 49152 to 65535. The
default setting for this parameter is 50069. Communications over
this port are not encrypted.
9
If necessary, enable encrypted communications. If you answer yes
to this option, perform the following steps:
Schneider Electric Buildings AB, Mar 2010
04-00053-01-en
a
Set the Secure UDP Port Number to a value from 49152 to
65535.
b
Define an Encryption Key of up to 25 alpha-numeric characters (this string is case sensitive and there are no restrictions
on what characters you can use).

•
If necessary, you can use the same link number as one or more
other NPRs or Xenta 527/527-NPRs on the I/NET network by
enabling DLA in each device. In this case, use the Site parameter (described below) to assign each device a unique Site
address.
Note
I/NET host workstations do not provide the same distributed link
capabilities as DLA-enabled NPRs and Xenta 527/527-NPRs. You
cannot duplicate a host workstation’s link address in an NPR, Xenta
527/527-NPR, or any other device on the I/NET network.

If you intend to enable DLA in this Xenta 527-NPR, assign a Site
number (0–63) to this device. Ensure that this number is unique
among all NPRs and Xenta 527/527-NPRs sharing the same Link
number. An I/NET device using a different Link number can
duplicate this device’s Site number without conflict.
If you do not enable the DLA function, this parameter’s setting will
be ignored.

Enter the Xenta 527-NPR’s Station number (0–63). Use the following guidelines when assigning the Station number:
•
Define a Station number that is unique among all other
devices on the I/NET controller LAN (that is, no two devices
on a single controller LAN can use the same Station number).
•
The Station number can be the same as that of a device
attached to another controller LAN. For example, the NPR at
Site 2 of a distributed link can have the same station number
as any device at Site 1 of the distributed link.
If necessary, enable distributed link architecture (DLA) functionality in this device by setting the DLA control to Yes. When using
the DLA feature, remember to define a unique Site number for this
device. Refer to the TCON300, I/NET Seven Technical Reference
Guide for more in-depth information about DLA.Set the Baudrate
at which the Xenta 527-NPR will communicate with devices on
the I/NET controller LAN. Ensure you set this parameter to match

SNMP Polling of I/NET System
Variables
Note
•
SNMP polling features are provided for diagnostic purposes and
are intended for use only by network specialists. These features
are not intended for use by daily users of the Xenta 527-NPR.
As described in TAC Xenta Server – TAC Networks, Technical Manual,
the Xenta 527-NPR has an SNMP agent installed by default. The Xenta
527-NPR does not provide the asynchronous trapping features that are
available in the Xenta 527. However, it does provide
I/NET system variables that are available for polling by the networkmanagement system (NMS).

7 SNMP Polling of I/NET System Variables
Monitoring System Variables from an NMS
Application
In order for the NMS to utilize the Xenta 527-NPR’s I/NET system variables, you must first install a specialized Management Information Base
(MIB). The MIB filename is tacInetMib.mib. You can locate this file on
Schneider Electric’s web site. Install this file in accordance with the particular NMS application(s) being used to monitor the Xenta 527-NPR.
After you install the MIB, the NMS application will contain a private
SNMP MIB table labeled “tac”. Using the application’s hierarchical
view of this table, you can expand underlying branches to view the status of I/NET system variables.
