Introduction
Chapter 1
Introduction
This chapter provides the command line interface (CLI) options available for the IOLAN. The
commands are grouped by function.
CLI Conventions
This section explains how to interpret the CLI syntax.If you are an existing Terminal Server customer
and would like to configure the IOLAN in the native Terminal Server interface, you can type the
command ts-config to display and use the native Terminal Server interface (you must have User
Level Admin). See your Terminal Server User Guide for information on using the Terminal Server
interface.
Command Syntax
Each command is broken down into several categories:
z
Description—Provides a brief explanation of how the command is used.
z
User Level—Shows which user level(s) (Restricted, Normal, and/or Admin) can issue the
command. Some commands have options that are available for one user level and not for another
level; this usually occurs when a command is valid for both Normal and Admin user levels,
where the Admin user level command will have extended options.
z
Syntax—Shows the actual command line options. The options can be typed in any order on the
command line. The syntax explanation will use the following command to break down the
command syntax:
set service [dhcp/bootp on|off] [telnetd on|off] [httpd on|off]
[snmpd on|off] [spcd on|off] [syslog on|off] [dmgrd on|off]
–
Square brackets ([]) show the options that are available for the command. You can type a
command with each option individually, or string options together in any order you want.
For example,
set service dhcp/bootp on telnetd off
–
Angle brackets (<>) show that the text inside the brackets is a description for a variable
value that you must fill in according to your requirements. In the set server command,
you must determine the values for domain, internet, name, password-limit, and
subnet-bit-length, if you wish to specify them and not use their defaults (default values
provided in the Options description). The angle brackets can also contain a range that can be
used.
–
The pipe (|) shows an ’or’ condition. For example, valid values for telnetd are either on or
off.
IOLAN DS1/TS2 CLI Reference Guide, Version 4.9
14
CLI Conventions
z
Options—Provides an explanation of each of the options for a command and the default value if
there is one. Some commands do not have any options, so this category is absent.
Command Shortcuts
When you type a command, you can specify the shortest unique version of that command or you can
press the ESC or TAB key to complete the command. For example, the following command:
set telnet-client map-to-crlf off
can be typed as:
set tel map off
or, you can use the ESC key to complete the lines as you go along:
set tel<ESC>net-client ma<ESC>p-to-crlf off
where the <ESC> key was pressed to complete the option as it was typed.
Command Options
When you are typing commands on the command line (while connected to the IOLAN), you can view
the options by typing a question mark (?) after any part of the command to see what options are
available/valid. For example:
DS$ set vmodem ?
failure-string
host
port
style
success-string
suppress
DS$ set vmodem failure-string ?
<text>
30 characters maximum
DS$ set vmodem failure-string "Vmodem failed" ?
failure-string
host
port
style
success-string
suppress
Or press Enter to confirm command
DS$ set vmodem failure-string "Vmodem failed"
DS$ show vmodem
Host
Host Port
Success String
Failure String
"Vmodem failed"
Suppress
Off
Style
Numeric
DS$

Server Commands
Chapter 2
This chapter defines all the CLI commands associated with configuring the IOLAN’s server
parameters.
Server Commands
Set Custom-App
Description You can create a custom application that can run on the IOLAN using the Perle SDK.
User Level Admin
set custom-app server program-command-line <command>
Syntax
Options
program-command-line
The name of the SDK program executable that has been already been downloaded to
the IOLAN, plus any parameters you want to pass to the program. Maximum of 80
characters. Use the shell CLI command as described in the SDK Programmer’s Guide
to manage the files that you have downloaded to the IOLAN. For example, using
sample outraw program, you would type:
outraw -s 0 192.168.2.1:10001 Acct:10001
if you were starting the application on the Server (notice the -s 0 parameter specifies
Line 1).
Set Server
Description Sets server parameters.
User Level Admin
set server [auto-obtain-gw on|off] [banner on|off] [break on|off]
Syntax
[bypass-password on|off]
{data-logging-buffer-size<interger>][domain <string>]

on|off] single-telnet on|off]
set server[udp-always-arp on|off] [tftp [retry <integer>]
[timeout <integer>]] (available on 1 port models)
IOLAN DS1/TS2 CLI Reference Guide, Version 4.9
16
Server Commands
Options
auto-obtain-gw
When DHCP/BOOTP is enabled, you can enable this option to have the IOLAN receive
the Default Gateway IP address from the DHCP/BOOTP server.
banner
This parameter concerns the banner information (product name/software version). This
banner information is presented to a user with a login prompt. For security reasons, you
can turn off the display of this information. The default is Off.
break
Enables/disables the existing Reverse Telnet break signal and the out-of-band break
signals for TruePort. The default value is Off.
bypass-password
When set, authorised users who do not have a password set, with the exception of the
Admin user, WILL NOT be prompted for a password at login with Local
Authentication.
dhcp/bootp
Enables the DHCP/BOOTP client process in the IOLAN. By default, this is
disabled/off. If this is enabled, the server IP address parameter is disabled.
mtu
The Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) size of an IP frame that will be sent over the
network. Only one MTU size can be set for both IPV4 and IPV6 frames
MTU sizes: 68-1500 bytes
Default size: 1500 bytes.
domain_name
Unique name for your domain, your location in the global network. Like Hostname, it is
a symbolic, rather than a numerical, identifier.
flush-on-close
When enabled, deletes any pending outbound data when a port is closed; as opposed to
maintaining the port to send pending data. The default value is Off.
internet
The IOLAN’s unique IPv4 network IP address. If you are using the IOLAN in an IPv6
network, this field can be left blank.
monitor-connection-every
Specify how often, in seconds, the IOLAN will send a TCP keepalive. This only applies
to line service types that support the keepalive feature. T
Default Interval: 180 seconds.
monitor-connection-timeout
Sets the maximum time to wait for a response after sending a TCP keepalive message.
Values: 1-32767 seconds
Default: 5 seconds
monitor-connection-number
The number of TCP keepalive retries before the connection is closed.
Values: 1-32767
Default: 5
17
Server Commands
name
You must supply a name for the IOLAN.
netmask
The network subnet mask. For example, 255.255.0.0.
oem-login
When set, and a custom language file is in use, the login prompt will use the string
defined in the language file as the login prompt instead of the default prompt, login:.
password-limit
The number of attempts a user is allowed to enter a password for a serial port
connection from the network, before the connection is terminated and the user has to
attempt to login again. For users logging into the serial port, if this limit is exceeded,
the serial port is disabled for 5 minutes. A user with Admin level rights can restart the
serial port, bypassing the timeout, by issuing a kill on the disabled serial port. The
default value is 3.
prompt-with-name
Displays the Server Name field value instead of default product name. When enabled,
the Server Name is displayed in the IOLAN login prompt, CLI prompt, WebManager
login screen, and the heading of the Menu. The default value is Off.
single-telnet
In this mode of operation, the IOLAN will only allow for a single TCP connection at a
time to exist for each serial port configured for a reverse connection type. Subsequent
connection attempts will be refused until all of the following conditions are met;
z
No active connection to serial port exists and at least 1 second has passed since last
connection was terminated.
z
All data from previous connection on the serial port has been transmitted.
The IOLAN has logic to automatically detect when a reverse connection is no longer
active. When this happens, the connection is reset and the server can go back to a
listening for an incoming connection state.
Applications using Single Telnet need to be aware that there can be some considerable
delay between a network disconnection and the port being available for the next
connection attempt; this is to allow any data sent on prior connections to be transmitted
out of the serial port. Application network retry logic needs to accommodate this
feature. The default value is Off.
retry
The number of times the IOLAN will attempt to transfer (using TFTP) a file to/from a
host. Enter a value between 0 and 5. The default is 5. A value of 0 (zero) means that the
IOLAN will not attempt a retry should TFTP fail.
timeout
The time, in seconds, that the IOLAN will wait for a successful transmit or receipt of
TFTP packets before retrying a TFTP transfer. Enter a value between 3 and 10. The
default is 3 seconds.
18
Server Commands
data-logging-buffer-size
The minimum data buffer size for all models is 1 KB. The maximum data buffer size is
2000 KB for TS1, all other models the maximum size is 4000 KB. If the data buffer is
filled, incoming serial data will overwrite the oldest data.
Data logging is only valid for Trueport and TCP Sockets profiles.
Values: 1-2000 KB (TS1)
Values: 1-4000 KB (all other models)
Default Buffer Size: 4 KB (TS1)
Default Buffer Size: 256 KB (all other models)
pre-4.3g data-logging
Enable the data logging feature previous toV4.3 firmware.
Default: Disabled
udp-always-arp
This controls whether the IOLAN will attempt an ARP each time there is data to be
transmitted and the ARP table does not have a valid ARP entry for the destination.
When set to "off", a new ARP will only be attempted after a timeout period. Any data
to be sent before the timeout elapses, will be silently discarded.
Default: Off
Set Service
Description Sets server service parameters.
User Level Admin
set service [telnetd on|off] [httpd on|off] [snmpd on|off]
Syntax

Chapter 4
This chapter defines all the CLI commands associated with configuring the IOLAN’s line parameters.
1-Port vs. 2-Port Line Commands
If you are using a DS1 IOLAN, the admin user does not have the option of using the number or all
(*) options in the line commands, as there is only one line. In an TS2 IOLAN, the admin user must
specify . (current line), <number> (line number), or * (sets value for all lines) when configuring
lines.

Note: The save command must be executed by an admin user in order
for this parameter to be permanently saved.
break
Specifies how a break is interpreted:
z
off—The IOLAN ignores the break key completely and it is not passed through to
the host. This is the default setting.
z
local—The IOLAN deals with the break locally. If the user is in a session, the
break key has the same effect as a hot key.
z
remote—When the break key is pressed, the IOLAN translates this into a telnet
break signal which it sends to the host machine.
z
break-interrupt—On some systems such as SunOS, XENIX, and AIX, a break
received from the peripheral is not passed to the client properly. If the client wishes
to make the break act like an interrupt key (for example, when the stty options
-ignbrk and brkintr are set).
break-length
The length of time (in milliseconds) for which the break signal will be asserted on the serial port. Valid values are 0-65535.
Default is 1000 ms
A value of 0 will cause the "request to send a break signal" to be ignored.
break-delay
The length of time (in milliseconds) to delay after a break signal is sent before the IOLAN
sends data. Valid values are 0-65535.
Default: 0 ms ( no delay )
connection-method
Determines how a modem will work on the line. Select from the following options:
z
Direct Connect—Indicates that there is not a modem on the line. This is the
default.
z
Dial In—Specify this option when a user is remote and will be dialing in via
modem or ISDN TA.
z
Dial Out—Specify this option when a modem is attached to the serial port and is
being used to dial out.
z
Dial In/Out—Specify this option when the IOLAN is being used as a router
(depending on which end of the link your IOLAN is situated and how you want to
initiate the communication).
data-bits
Specifies the number of bits in a byte. The default is 8.
dial-timeout
The number of seconds the IOLAN will wait to establish a connection to a remote
modem. The default value is 45 seconds.
dial-retries
The number of times the IOLAN will attempt to establish a connection with a remote
modem. The default value is 2.
37
Line Commands
flowin
Determines if input flow control is to be used. Default is On. This is active only when
Line Flow Control is set to Soft, Hard, or Both.
flowout
Determines if output flow control is to be used. Default is On. This is active only when
Line Flow Control is set to Soft, Hard, or Both.
hotkey-prefix
The prefix that a user types to lock a line or redraw the Menu. The default value is hex
01, which corresponds to Ctrl-a (^a) (hex value 02 would be Ctrl-b (^b), etc.):
z
^a l—(Lowercase L) Locks the line until the user unlocks it. The user is prompted
for a password (any password, excluding spaces) and locks the line. Next, the user
must retype the password to unlock the line.
z
^r—When you switch from a session back to the Menu, the screen may not be
redrawn correctly. If this happens, use this command to redraw it properly.
You can use the Hotkey Prefix key to lock a line only when the Line Lock parameter is
On.
idle-timer
Enter a time period, in seconds, for which the Idle Timer will run. Use this timer to
close a connection because of inactivity. When the Idle Timer expires, the IOLAN will
end the connection. The maximum value is 4294967 seconds (about 49 days). The
default value of 0 (zero) means the Idle Timer will not expire, so the connection is
permanently open.
data-logging
When enabled, serial data will be buffered if the TCP connection is lost. When the TCP
connection is re-established, the buffered serial data will be sent to its destination .
Note: A kill line or a reboot of the IOLAN causes all buffered data to be lost.
The minimum data buffer size for all models is 1K. The maximum data buffer size is
2000 KB for DS1/TS1/STS8D, all other models the maximum size is 4000 KB. If the
data buffer is filled, incoming serial data will overwrite the oldest data.
Some profile features are not compatible when using the Data Logging feature. See
Data Logging Appendix H in the IOLAN User’s Guide for more information.
Data logging is only valid for Trueport and TCP Sockets profiles.
Values: 1-2000 KB (DS1/TS1/STS8D)
Values: 1-4000 KB (all other models)
Default Buffer Size: 4 KB (DS1/TS1/STS8D)
Default Buffer Size: 256 KB (all other models)
Default: Disabled
initial
Specifies the initial interface a user navigates when logging into the line; either the
Menu or a prompt for the CLI. The default is CLI.
initiate-connection
Initiates a Telnet connection to the specified host when any data is received by the serial
port or when the specified character is received by the serial port (direct Telnet only).
38
Line Commands
internet-address
Used with reverse sessions, users can access serial devices connected to the IOLAN by
the specified Internet Address (or host name that can be resolved by a DNS). You must
reboot the IOLAN for the Internet Address to take affect (the kill line option does not
apply to this parameter).
keepalive
Enables a per-connection TCP keepalive feature. After the configured number of
seconds, the connection will send a gratuitous ACK to the network peer, thus either
ensuring the connection stays active OR causing a dropped connection condition to be
recognized.
This parameter needs to be used in conjunction with server parameter,
monitor-connection-every. The interval determines how long the IOLAN will wait
during inactivity before "testing" the connection. It should be noted that if a network
connection is accidentally dropped, it can take as long as the specified interval before
anyone can reconnect to the serial port.
line-name
Provide a name for the line so it can be easily identified.
lock
When enabled, the user can lock his terminal with a password using the Hotkey Prefix
(default Ctrl-a) ^a l (lowercase L). The IOLAN prompts the user for a password and a
confirmation.
mode
Enables/disables the line (available only on the TS2 model). The default is enabled.
modem-name
The name of the predefined modem that is used on this line.
motd
Enables/disables the message of the day on the line.
nouser
Blanks out the User parameter, in case you want to change a dedicated user line to an
undedicated line.
pages
For DSLogin line service, this is the number of video pages the terminal supports. Valid
values are 1-7. The default is 5 pages.
parity
Specifies if you are using Even, Odd, or No parity on the line. If you want to force a
parity type, you can specify Mark for 1or Space for 0.
phone-number
The phone number to use when Connection Method is set to Dial Out.
reset
Resets the terminal type connected to the line when a user logs out.
rev-sess-security
Enables/disables login/password authentication, locally or externally, on reverse Telnet
connections. The default is Off.
39
Line Commands
send-name
When enabled, the port name will be sent to the host upon session initiation.
Default: Disabled
session strings
Controls the sending of ASCII strings to serial devices at session start and session
termination as follows;
z
Send at Start—If configured, this string will be sent to the serial device when the
serial device is detected (i.e. signals come up). The maximum size of this field is
128 bytes/characters. Non printable ascii characters must be entered in this format
<027>. The decimal numbers within the brackets must be 3 digits long (example
003 not 3).
z
Send at End—If configured, this string will be sent to the serial device when the
TCP session on the LAN is terminated. The maximum size of this field is 128
bytes/characters. Non printable ascii character must be entered in this format
<027> (escape). The decimal numbers within the brackets must be 3 digits long
(example 003 not 3).
z
Delay after Send—If configured, a delay time is sent to the device. This delay can
be used to provide the serial device with time to process the string before the
session is initiated.
Range: 0-65535 ms
Default: 10 ms
sess-timer
Enter a time, in seconds, for which the Session Timer will run. Use this timer to
forcibly close the session (connection). When the Session Timer expires, the IOLAN
will end the connection. The default value is 0 seconds so the port will never timeout.
The maximum value is 4294967 seconds (about 49 days).
stop-bits
Specifies the number of stop bits that follow a byte.
term-type
Specifies the type of terminal connected to the line:
z
Dumb
z
WYSE60
z
VT100
z
ANSI
z
TVI925
z
IBM3151TE
z

user
For DSLogin line service, makes this a line that is dedicated to the specified user. Only
this user will be able to log in on this line and they won’t need to enter their login name
- just their password.
40
Line Commands
discard-characters received-with-error
When enabled, the IOLAN will discard characters received with a parity or framing
error.
Default: Disabled.
rts-toggle
RTS-Toggle
Configure the Toggle RTS feature if your application needs for RTS to be raised during
character transmission.
Initial delay: configure the time (in ms) between the time the RTS signal is raised and
the start of character transmission. This delay only applies if this port is not running
hardware flow control. If hardware flow control is used, the transmission will occur as
soon as CTS is raised by the modem.
Final delay: configure the time (in ms) between the time of character transmission and
when RTS is dropped.
Initial delay range: 0-1000 ms
Final delay range: 0-1000 ms
Default: Off

Options
eia-232 | eia422 | 485
Specifies the type of line that is being used with the IOLAN. Select either EIA-232,
EIA-422, or EIA-485 (TS2 supports only EIA-232).
monitor-dcd
Specifies whether the RS-232 signal DCD (Data Carrier Detect) should be monitored.
This is used with modems or any other device that sends a DCD signal. When it is
monitored and the IOLAN detects a DCD signal, the line service is started. Default is
Off. If both Monitor DCD and Monitor DSR are enabled, both signals must be detected
before the line service is started.
41
Line Commands
monitor-dsr
Specifies whether the RS-232 signal DSR (data set ready) should be monitored. This is
used with modems or any device that sends a DSR signal. When it is monitored and the
IOLAN detects a DSR signal, the line service is started. Default is Off. If both Monitor
DCD and Monitor DSR are enabled, both signals must be detected before the line
service is started.
flow
Defines whether the data flow is handled by the software (Soft), hardware (Hard),
Both, or None.
tx-driver-control
Used with a EIA-485 serial interface, if your application supports RTS (Request To
Send), select this option. Otherwise, select Auto. Default is Auto.
duplex
Specify whether the line is Full Duplex (communication both ways at the same time) or
Half Duplex (communication in one direction at a time).
echo-suppression
This parameter applies only to EIA-485 Half Duplex mode. All characters will be
echoed to the user and transmitted across the serial ports. Some EIA-485 applications
require local echo to be enabled in order to monitor the loopback data to determine that
line contention has occurred. If your application cannot handle loopback data, echo
suppression should be On. The default is echo suppression Off.
speed
Specifies the baud rate of the line; keep in mind that speed is affected by the length of
the cable. You can also specify a custom baud rate; valid values are 50 - 1843200.
Set Line Service
Description Sets the service for the line. For services that need further configuration, see Line

Options
bidir
This service allows the IOLAN to listen for incoming TCP connection and if needed,
initiate a TCP connection.
<config_host>
The name of the target host. The host must exist in the IOLAN host table.
<server_port>
The IOLAN port number.
<host_port>
The port number the target host is listening on for incoming connections.
direct
Direct connections bypass the IOLAN, enabling the user to log straight into a specific
host. A direct connection is recommended where a user logging in to the IOLAN is not
required. It is also recommended where multiple sessions are not a requirement. The
message Press return to continue is displayed on the users screen. The user
must press a key to display the host login prompt. The message is redisplayed on
logout.
silent
Silent connections are the same as direct connections, except they are permanently
established. The host login prompt is displayed on the screen. Logging out redisplays
this prompt. Silent connections, unlike direct connections, however, make permanent
use of pseudo tty resources and therefore consume host resources even when not in use.
43
Line Commands
raw
Creates a connection where no authentication takes place and data is passed unchanged.
telnet
Sets the line for a telnet connection.
reverse
Enables a TCP/IP host to establish a login connection on an external machine attached
to a port. For example, to access machines like protocol converters, statistical
multiplexors, or machines like routers, firewalls, servers, etc.
dslogin
The default connection. The IOLAN displays a login on that line. For example,
DSLogin is used when a System Administrator configures the IOLAN or users starts a
session(s) from the IOLAN to hosts.
udp
Sets the line to listen for and/or send UDP data.
vmodem
The IOLAN port behaves as if it were a modem to the attached device.
client-tunnel
Sets the line for a client tunnel connection.
server-tunnel
Sets the line for a server tunnel connection.
modbus-master
Sets the line to act as a Modbus master.
custom-app
Sets the line to use the custom application created with the SDK.
trueport
Sets the line to communicate with the TruePort utility. You must install the TruePort
utility on the host machine.
client-initiated
When this option is turned on, the IOLAN will wait for a connection from the TruePort
host (see the TruePort documentation for information on how to set up this feature on
the TruePort host). When this option is turned off, the IOLAN will initiate the
connection to the TruePort host. The default is off.
signal-active
This option has the following impact based on the state of the TruePort connection:
z
TruePort Lite Mode—When enabled, the EIA-232 signals remain active before,
during, and after the TruePort connection is established. When disabled, the
EIA-232 signals remain inactive when there is no TruePort connection and active
when there is a TruePort connection.
z
TruePort Full Mode—When enabled, the EIA-232 signals remain active before
and after the TruePort connection and the TruePort client will control the state of
the signals during the established TruePort connection. When disabled, the
EIA-232 signals remain inactive before and after the TruePort connection and the
TruePort client will control the state of the signals during the established TruePort
connection.
Default: Enabled
44
Line Commands
multihost
Used for connections coming from the network to the serial port for TruePort or Raw
services, allows multiple hosts to connect to the serial device.
multihost all|backup <config_backup_host> <tcp_port>|none
Used for connections going from the serial port to the network for TruePort or Silent
Raw services, allows the serial device to communicate to either all the hosts in the
multihost list or a primary/backup host schema (see Configuring Multiple Hosts in the
IOLAN User’s Guide for a more detailed explanation).

map-cr-crlf
Maps carriage returns (CR) to carriage return line feed (CRLF). The default value is
Off.
local-echo
Toggles between local echo of entered characters and suppressing local echo. Local
echo is used for normal processing, while suppressing the echo is convenient for
entering text that should not be displayed on the screen, such as passwords. This
parameter can only be used when Line Mode is On. Default is Off.
echo
Defines the echo character. When Line Mode is On, typing the echo character echoes
the text locally and sends only completed lines to the host. This value is in hexadecimal
with a default value of 5 (ASCII value ^E).
eof
Defines the end-of-file character. When Line Mode is On, entering the eof character as
the first character on a line sends the character to the remote host. This value is in
hexadecimal with a default value of 4 (ASCII value ^D).
erase
Defines the erase character. When Line Mode is Off, typing the erase character erases
one character. This value is in hexadecimal with a default value of 8 (ASCII value ^H).
intr
Defines the interrupt character. Typing the interrupt character interrupts the current
process. This value is in hexadecimal with a default value of 3 (ASCII value ^C).
quit
Defines the quit character. Typing the quit character closes and exits the current telnet
session. This value is in hexadecimal with a default value of 1c (ASCII value FS).

Options
minimize-latency
This option ensures that any data received on the serial port will immediately be
forwarded to the LAN. Select this option for timing-sensitive applications.
optimize-network-throughput
This option provides optimal network usage while ensuring that the application
performance is not compromised. Select this option when you want to minimize overall
packet count, such as when the connection is over a WAN.
prevent-message-fragmentation
This option detects the message, packet, or data blocking characteristics of the serial
data and preserves it throughout the communication. Select this option for
message-based applications or serial devices that are sensitive to inter-character delays
within these messages.
delay-between-messages
The minimum time, in milliseconds, between messages that must pass before the data is
forwarded by the IOLAN. The range is 0-65535. The default is 250 ms.
55
Packet Forwarding Commands
custom-on-specific-events
This section allows you to set a variety of packet definition options. The first criteria
that is met causes the packet to be transmitted. For example, if you set a Force
Transmit Timer of 1000 ms and a Packet Size of 100 bytes, whichever criteria is met
first is what will cause the packet to be transmitted.
custom-on-frame-definition
This section allows you to control the frame that is transmitted by defining the start and
end of frame character(s). If the internal buffer (1024 bytes) is full before the EOF
character(s) are received, the packet will be transmitted and the EOF character(s) search
will continue. The default frame definition is SOF=00 and EOF=00.
enable-end-trigger1
Enable or disable the end trigger1 hex character.
enable-end-trigger2
Enable or disable the end trigger2 hex character.
enable-end-eof1
Enable or disable the eof1 (end of frame) hex character.
enable-end-eof2
Enable or disable the eof2 (end of frame) hex character.
enable-end-sof1
Enable or disable the sof1 (start of frame) hex character.
enable-end-sof2
Enable or disable the sof2 (start of frame) hex character.
end-trigger1
When enabled, specifies the character that when received will define when the packet is
ready for transmission. The transmission of the packet is based on the Trigger
Forwarding Rule. Valid values are in hex 0-FF. The default is 0.
end-trigger2
When enabled, creates a sequence of characters that must be received to specify when
the packet is ready for transmission (if the End Trigger1 character is not immediately
followed by the End Trigger2 character, the IOLAN waits for another End Trigger1
character to start the End Trigger1/End Trigger2 character sequence). The transmission
of the packet is based on the Trigger Forwarding Rule. Valid values are in hex 0-FF.
The default is 0.
eof1
Specifies the End of Frame character, which defines when the frame is ready to be
transmitted. The transmission of the frame is based on the Trigger Forwarding Rule.
Valid values are in hex 0-FF. The default is 0.
eof2
When enabled, creates a sequence of characters that must be received to define the end
of the frame (if the EOF1 character is not immediately followed by the EOF2 character,
the IOLAN waits for another EOF1 character to start the EOF1/EOF2 character
sequence), which defines when the frame is ready to be transmitted. The transmission
of the frame is based on the Trigger Forwarding Rule. Valid values are in hex 0-FF. The
default is 0.
56
Packet Forwarding Commands
force-transmit-timer
When the specified amount of time, in milliseconds, elapses after the first character is
received from the serial port, the packet is transmitted. After a packet is transmitted, the
next character received starts the timer again. A value of zero (0) ignores this parameter.
Valid values are 0-65535 ms. The default is 0.
forwarding-rule
Determines what is included in the Frame (based on the EOF1 or EOF1/EOF2) or
Packet (based on Trigger1 or Trigger1/Trigger2). Choose one of the following options:
z
Strip-Trigger—Strips out the EOF1, EOF1/EOF2, Trigger1, or Trigger1/Trigger2,
depending on your settings.
z
Trigger—Includes the EOF1, EOF1/EOF2, Trigger1, or Trigger1/Trigger2,
depending on your settings.
z
Trigger+1—Includes the EOF1, EOF1/EOF2, Trigger1, or Trigger1/Trigger2,
depending on your settings, plus the first byte that follows the trigger.
z
Trigger+2—Includes the EOF1, EOF1/EOF2, Trigger1, or Trigger1/Trigger2,
depending on your settings, plus the next two bytes received after the trigger.
idle-timer
The amount of time, in milliseconds, that must elapse between characters before the
packet is transmitted to the network. A value of zero (0) ignores this parameter. Valid
values are 0-65535 ms. The default is 0.
packet-size
The number of byte that must be received from the serial port before the packet is
transmitted to the network. A value of zero (0) ignores this parameter. Valid values are
0-1024 bytes. The default is 0.
sof1
When enabled, the Start of Frame character defines the first character of the frame, any
character(s) received before the Start of Frame character is ignored. Valid values are in
hex 0-FF. The default is 0.
sof2
When enabled, creates a sequence of characters that must be received to create the start
of the frame (if the SOF1 character is not immediately followed by the SOF2 character,
the IOLAN waits for another SOF1 character to start the SOF1/SOF2 character
sequence). Valid values are in hex 0-FF. The default is 0.
start-frame-transmit
When enabled, the SOF1 or SOF1/SOF2 characters will be transmitted with the frame.
If not enabled, the SOF1 or SOF1/SOF2 characters will be stripped from the
transmission.

when Trigger Type is High or go above the specified value when Trigger Type is Low.
mode
Enables/disables an alarm level. The default is off.
trigger-type
If the Trigger Type is Low, an alarm is triggered when the input drops below the
specified Trigger value; other severity level trigger values must decrease in value with
each subsequent level. If the Trigger Type is High, an alarm is triggered when the input
is higher than the specified Trigger value; other severity level trigger values must
increase in value with each subsequent level.
trigger-level
Specify the value that will trigger an alarm, the measurement is based on the Type and
Range that you specify. This value must not fall within the scope of the value used to
clear an alarm.
clear-mode
Specifies whether an activated alarm must be Manually cleared, or can be cleared when
the input drops below the specified value (when Trigger Type is High) or goes above
the specified value (when Trigger Type is Low).
clear-level
Specify that value that will clear an alarm, the measurement is based on the Type and
Range that you specify. This value must not fall within the scope of the value used to
trigger an alarm.
snmp
Sends an SNMP trap when an alarm is triggered or cleared. The trap consists of the
severity level and whether the alarm was triggered or cleared.
syslog
Sends a message to syslog when an alarm is triggered or cleared. The syslog entry
includes the severity level and the value that caused the alarm to trigger or clear. The
syslog message is associated with Level Critical.

Set IOChannel
Set IOChannel IOExtension
Description Configures the I/O extension options that allow you to connect the Digital Input
channel or input serial signal pin (when the line is configured for signal-io) to Digital
Output/Relay channels or output serial signal pins (when the line is configured for
signal-io) on the same IOLAN, remote IOLAN(s), and/or TCP/IP applications running
on local hosts.
User Level Admin
set iochannel <channel> ioextension enabled on|off
Syntax
[keepalive on|off]

[multihost all|backup <config_backup_host> <host_port>|none]
set iochannel <channel> ioextension connection-method
local-connection [<input_channel>]
Options
<channel>
Specify the Digital/Relay channel or serial signal pin that you are configuring the I/O
extension for. The channel can be d1, d2, d3, d4, r1, r2, depending on the model. The
serial signal pins are dsr, dcd, or cts for input and dtr or rts for output.
enabled
When enabled, the digital input channel or DSR/DCD/CTS input serial signal pins can
be connected to:
z
A Digital output or relay (if the I/O model supports relay) channel on the same
IOLAN
z
Output Serial Signal Pins (DTR/RTS)
z
A Digital output channel on another IOLAN(s) or output serial signal pins
(DTR/RTS) on another IOLAN(s)
z
A TCP/IP application(s) running on a host on the network
When enabled, the digital output/relay channel or DTR/RTS output serial signal pins
can be associated with a digital input channel or input serial signal pins.
Default: Disabled
keepalive
Enables a per-connection TCP keepalive feature. After the configured number of
seconds, the connection will send a gratuitous ACK to the network peer, thus either
ensuring the connection stays active OR causing a dropped connection condition to be
recognized.
This parameter needs to be used in conjunction with server parameter,
monitor-connection-every. The interval determines how long the IOLAN will wait
during inactivity before "testing" the connection. It should be noted that if a network
connection is accidentally dropped, it can take as long as the specified interval before
anyone can reconnect to the serial port.
85
Set IOChannel
connection-method
The connection-method is one of the following:
z
Client-Initiated—When specified, the channel/serial signal pin will wait for
connections to be initiated by another I/O channel or a TCP/IP application.
z
Server-Initiated—When specified, the channel/serial signal pin initiates
communication to another I/O channel or a TCP/IP application.
z
Local-Connection—When specified, the input or output, depending on how the
channel or serial signal pin is configured, will be associated with another local
IOLAN I/O channel or serial signal pin.
When the channel is configured as digital input or when configuring an input serial
signal pin, the Output Channels parameter displays all the local digital output
signals or relays that it is associated with.
When the channel is configured as digital output, you must select a local digital
input channel or input serial signal pin on the IOLAN.
Note that the Failsafe Action is not compatible with the local-connection option.
Default: Client-Initiated
client-initiated tcp-port
The TCP port that the channel/serial signal pin will use to listen for incoming
connections.
Default: 2000 for channel 1, then increments by one for each channel
client-initiated multihost
When this option is enabled, multiple I/O channels and/or TCP/IP applications can
connect to this channel/serial signal pin. The default is off.
server-initiated tcp-port
The TCP Port that the channel/serial signal pin will use to communicate to another
IOLAN or a TCP/IP application.
Default: 2000 for channel 1, then increments by one for each channel
server-initiated multihost all|backup <config_backup_host> <tcp_port>|none
Used for connections going from the Digital input channel or input serial signal pins,
allows the input channel/serial signal pin to communicate to either all the hosts in the
multihost list or a primary/backup host schema (see Configuring Multiple Hosts in the
IOLAN User’s Guide for a more detailed explanation).
local-connection <input_channel>
Specify the Digital input channel or input serial signal pin that will control the
Digital/Relay output channel or output serial signal pin.
86
Set IOChannel
Set IOChannel Multihost

Glossary
This chapter provides definitions for IOLAN terms.
BOOTP (BOOTstrap
Protocol)
An Internet protocol that enables a diskless workstation to discover its own IP address, the IP
address of a BOOTP server on the network, and a file to be loaded into memory to boot the
machine. This enables the workstation to boot without requiring a hard or floppy disk drive.
Community (SNMP)
An SNMP community is the group that devices and management stations running SNMP belong
to. It helps define where information is sent.
DHCP (Dynamic Host A TCP/IP protocol that provides static and dynamic address allocation and management.
Configuration
Protocol)
Direct Connection
Connections that bypass the IOLAN enabling the user to log straight into a specific host. A
direct connection is recommended where a user logging into the IOLAN is not required.
Ethernet
A high-speed (10Mbps,100Mbps) cable technology that connects devices to a LAN, using one
or more sets of communication protocols.
Local Authentication
Uses the user ID and password stored within the IOLAN User database.
Modem Initialization
String
A series of commands sent to the modem by a communications program at start up. These
commands tell a modem how to set itself up in order to communicate easily with another
modem.
MOTD
Message of the day. This is defined by a file whose contents display when users log into the
IOLAN.
Multicast
The broadcasting of messages to a specified group of workstations on a LAN, WAN, or internet.
NAK (Negative
Acknowledgment)
A communication control character sent by the receiving destination indicating that the last
message was not received correctly.
Reverse Connection
Connections that originate from a host that go directly to a serial device through the IOLAN.
Silent Connection
Silent connections are the same as direct connections except that they are permanently
established. The host login prompt is displayed on the screen. Logging out redisplays this
prompt. Silent connections, unlike direct connections, however, make permanent use of pseudo
tty resources and therefore consume host resources even when not in use.
SNMP (Simple
A protocol for managing network devices.
Network Management
Protocol)
Subnet/Prefix Bits
Identifies the devices IP address, which portion constitutes the network address and which
portion constitutes the host address.
