OnCell G3150A-LTE
Getting Started
First—Time Installation and Configuration
Before installing the OnCell G3150A-LTE, make sure that all items in the package checklist are in the box. In
addition, you will need access to a notebook computer or PC equipped with an Ethernet port. The OnCell
G3150A-LTE has a default IP address that you must use when connecting to the device for the first time.
Step 1: Install a SIM Card
Insert one or two 2G/3G/4G SIM cards into the SIM slots located on the bottom of the OnCell G3150A-LTE.
The SIM card slots are inside the OnCell G3150A-LTE’s
housing. To install a SIM card in one of the slots, do the
following:
1. Turn off the OnCell G3150A-LTE.
2. Remove the screw on the SIM card slot cover.
3. Install a SIM card into the SIM card slot.
a. For SIM 1, orient the card such that the gold
contacts are facing down and the cut-off edge is to
the left.
b. For SIM 2, orient the card such that the gold
contacts are facing up and the cut-off edge is to the
right.
4. Put back the screw on the SIM card slot cover and
secure the cover by tightening the screw.
Step 2: Turn On the OnCell G3150A-LTE
Turn on the OnCell G3150A-LTE by connecting the power terminal block to a DC power source.
Step 3: Connect the OnCell G3150A-LTE to a Computer
Since the OnCell G3150A-LTE supports MDI/MDI-X autosensing, you can use either a straight-through cable or
crossover cable to connect the OnCell G3150A-LTE to a computer. When a connection is established, the LED
indicator on the OnCell G3150A-LTE's LAN port lights up.
Step 4: Configure an IP Address for the Computer
You must set an IP address for the computer so that it is on the same subnet as the OnCell G3150A-LTE. Since
the OnCell G3150A-LTE’s default IP address is 192.168.127.254 and the subnet mask is 255.255.255.0,
you should set the IP address of the computer to 192.168.127.xxx.
NOTE
In the OnCell G3150A-LTE, you can select Maintenance > Load Factory Default and click Submit to reset
the OnCell G3150A-LTE to the factory default settings, which will reset the IP address to 192.168.127.254.

OnCell G3150A-LTE
Getting Started
Step 5: Access the Web Console
To access the OnCell G3150A-LTE web console:
1. Open a web browser and enter http://192.168.127.254 in the address field.
NOTE
Default user name and password:
User Name:

OnCell G3150A-LTE
Getting Started
Step 6: Establish a Cellular Connection
After installing the SIM card, obtain the SIM card PIN and APN (Access Point Name) information from your
service provider and configure the cellular WAN settings.
To configure the cellular WAN settings and establish a cellular connection:
1. Log in to the web console.
2. Go to Cellular Settings > Cellular WAN Settings and enter the SIM card PIN and APN values.
3. Restart the OnCell G3150A-LTE.
The OnCell G3150A-LTE automatically establishes a cellular connection to the service provider after it
restarts.
Step 7: Verify the Cellular Connection
You can use one of the following methods to verify the cellular connection:
1. Check the LED display.
Check the SIM 1, SIM2, 2G, 3G, and 4G LEDs on the front panel.
If an LED on the SIM card slot is blinking, it could mean that no SIM card is installed in the SIM slot or the
SIM card PIN is not configured in the web console.
If the installed SIM card supports 3G or 4G service but only the 2G LED is turned on, this indicates that the
OnCell G3150A-LTE is connected to the cellular network but is not registered for 3G or 4G service. Make
sure that you enter the correct APN information in the web console.
2. Check the Overview page in the web console.
Log in to the web console to display the Overview page. Check the Cellular RSSI, Cellular WAN IP address,
and Cellular Mode fields to identify any connection problems.
For Cellular RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indication), make sure that the value is above 12 in order to
maintain a stable connection.
If the Cellular WAN IP address is not available but the Cellular RSSI is more than 12, make sure that the APN
configuration is correct. The service provider might assign a private WAN IP address, which is not accessible
externally.
3. Test the cellular network access on your computer.
Users with public SIM cards (instead of SIM cards with MDVPN service enabled) can test the connection to
the Internet on your computer (assuming that your computer is connected to an Ethernet port on the
OnCell G3150A-LTE).
An example of the configuration settings on the computer is given below:
•
Laptop IP Address: 192.168.127.10 (on the same subnet as the OnCell gateway)
•
Laptop Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 (on the same subnet as the OnCell gateway)
•
Laptop Default Gateway: 192.168.127.254 (the OnCell gateway IP address)
•
Laptop Primary DNS Server: 8.8.8.8 (test with Google's public DNS server)
•
Laptop Primary DNS Server: 8.8.4.4 (test with Google's public DNS server)
After the configuration process is complete, your computer will be able to access the Internet.
For information on testing the connection with a DHCP server, refer to Chapter 3, Advanced Settings, DHCP
Server.

GuaranLink
A number of factors can contribute to connection failures for cellular communications, including loss of cellular
signal, interference, and termination by the operator for unknown reasons. Moxa’s proprietary GuaranLink
feature, which is different from the basic heartbeat function, enables reliable connectivity with 4-tier intelligent
connection checks without sending excessive and costly cellular packets.
GuaranLink Recovery Process for Dual SIM Connections
The GuaranLink feature in OnCell G3150A-LTE automatically tries to re-establish a connection when a
connection failure occurs by performing one of the following actions depending on the number of SIM cards
enabled in the device:
•
One SIM card: GuaranLink resets the cellular module without rebooting the device to force negotiation
between the OnCell G3150A-LTE and the base station.
•
Dual SIM cards: When the preferred SIM card fails to establish a connection, GuaranLink resets the cellular
module without rebooting the device and establishes a cellular connection using the second SIM card
account.
•
If SIM 1 is chosen but SIM card is installed only in SIM 2 slot, no action will be performed. Please ensure that
a SIM card is installed in the SIM card slot that you have selected for operation.
•
If one of the SIM cards is absent or not readable, GuaranLink will automatically force a cellular connection
using the other SIM card account. The system log will record this event. If the second SIM card is also
absent or cannot be read, GuaranLink will not try again.

Port Forwarding Function
You can configure port forwarding settings on the OnCell G3150A-LTE to redirect specific packets from a
remote host on the WAN to a server on the LAN. This feature hides the IP address of a local server and prevents
remote hosts from accessing the local server directly.
The OnCell G3150A-LTE filters out unrecognized packets to protect your LAN network when computers
connected to the OnCell G3150A-LTE are not visible to the WAN.
NOTE
You can make LAN computers accessible from the Internet by enabling Virtual Server.
You can also configure port forwarding on the OnCell G3150A-LTE to redirect traffic to a specific port on a LAN
computer.

SNMP Agent
The OnCell G3150A-LTE supports SNMP V1/V2c/V3. SNMP V1 and SNMP V2c use a community string match for
authentication, which means that SNMP servers access all objects with read-only or read/write permissions
using the community string public/private (default value). SNMP V3, which requires you to select an
authentication level of MD5 or SHA, is the most secure protocol. You can also enable data encryption to
enhance data security.
The OnCell G3150A-LTE’s MIB is available for download from Moxa’s official website and supports reading the
attributes via SNMP (only the SNMP GET method is supported.)
SNMP security modes and security levels supported by the OnCell G3150A-LTE are shown in the following table.

VPN
Computers that are part of a virtual private network (VPN) use a second, “virtual” IP address to connect to the
Internet. Instead of running across a single private network, some of the links between nodes that are part of
a VPN use open network connections or virtual circuits on a larger network, such as the Internet. The OnCell
G3150A-LTE can act as a VPN client or VPN server. Once the connection is established, cellular devices can
communicate with other network devices on the same private network.
The following figure shows an example of a network topology:

Serial Port Settings
In this section, we describe the various operation modes of the OnCell G3150A-LTE. The OnCell G3150A-LTE
modes are grouped by type of application, such as Device Control. The options include an operation mode that
relies on a driver installed on the host computer, and operation modes that rely on TCP/IP socket programming
concepts.
The OnCell G3150A-LTE can enable cellular network-in a serial device. OnCell G3150A-LTE device is assigned
an IP address by the Internet service provider (ISP). In addition, the OnCell G3150A-LTE can enable cellular
connectivity in Ethernet devices on the local Ethernet. See the OnCell Central Manager user’s manual for
details.
The OnCell G3150A-LTE enables traditional serial (RS-232/422/485) devices for transmitting data over the
cellular network. The IP gateway is a computer equipped with a CPU and TCP/IP protocols that can
bi-directionally translate data between the serial and IP formats. With the OnCell G3150A-LTE, your computer
will be able to access, manage, and configure remote facilities and equipment over the cellular network from
anywhere in the world.

Traditional SCADA and data collection systems rely on serial ports to collect data from various kinds of
instruments. Since the OnCell G3150A-LTE network-enables instruments equipped with an RS-232, RS-422, or
RS-485 communication port, your SCADA and data collection system will be able to access all instruments
connected to a standard TCP/IP network, regardless of whether the devices are used locally or at a remote site.
The OnCell G3150A-LTE is an external IP-based network device that allows you to expand a serial port for a
host computer on demand. As long as your host computer supports the TCP/IP protocol, you will not be limited
by the host computer’s bus limitation (such as ISA or PCI), nor will you be limited if you do not have drivers for
various operating systems.
In addition to providing socket access, the OnCell G3150A-LTE also comes with a Real COM driver and a
Reverse Real COM driver that transmits all serial signals intact. This enables you to preserve your existing
COM-based software without needing to invest in additional software.
Three different socket modes are available: TCP Server, TCP Client, and UDP. The main difference between the
TCP and UDP protocols is that TCP guarantees delivery of data by requiring the recipient to send an
acknowledgement to the sender. UDP does not require this type of verification, making it possible to offer faster
delivery. UDP also allows you to unicast data to one IP, or multicast the data to a group of IP addresses.

Serial Port Settings
Port Setting Basics
To configure the operation mode and settings for a port, expand Serial Port Settings in the navigation panel,
and then expand the port that you would like to configure. Individual port settings are grouped into three
categories in the navigation panel: Operation Modes, Communication Parameters, and Data Buffering/Log.
Disabled Mode
When the Application is set to Disable, the relevant port will be disabled.

Device Control Applications
The OnCell G3150A-LTE offers the following modes for device control applications: Real COM, Reverse Real
COM, and RFC2217 modes.
Real COM Mode
NOTE
You can download the Moxa Drivers for operation modes from www.moxa.com.
File Name: NPort/OnCell Windows Driver Manager
In Real COM mode, the bundled drivers are able to establish a transparent connection between a host and a
serial device by mapping the serial port on the OnCell G3150A-LTE to a local COM port on the host computer.
Real COM mode supports up to 2 simultaneous connections that enable 2 hosts to simultaneously collect data
from the same serial device.
One of the major conveniences of using Real COM mode is that it allows you to use software that was written
for pure serial communication applications. The OnCell COM driver intercepts data sent to the host’s COM port,
packs it into a TCP/IP packet, and then redirects it through the host’s Ethernet card to the Internet. At the other
end of the connection, the OnCell G3150A-LTE accepts the IP frame from the cellular network, unpacks the
TCP/IP packet, and then transparently sends the data through the serial port to the attached serial device.

Description
Factory Default
TCP alive check time This field specifies how long the OnCell G3150A-LTE will wait
7 min
for a response to “keep alive” packets before closing the TCP
connection. The OnCell G3150A-LTE checks the connection
status by sending periodic “keep alive” packets. If the remote
host does not respond to the packet within the time specified in
this field, the OnCell G3150A-LTE will force the existing TCP
connection to close. For socket and device control modes, the
OnCell G3150A-LTE will listen for another TCP connection from
another host after closing the connection. If TCP alive check
time is set to 0, the TCP connection will remain open and will
not send any “keep alive” packets.
Max connection
This field is used if you need to receive data from different hosts 1
simultaneously. When set to 1, only one specific host can
access this port of the OnCell G3150A-LTE, and the OnCell COM
driver on that host will have full control over the port. When set
to 2, the specified number of hosts’ OnCell COM driver may
open this port at the same time. When multiple hosts on the
OnCell COM driver open the port at the same time, the COM
driver only provides a pure data tunnel --no control ability
unless “Allow Driver Control” is enabled. The serial port
parameters will use firmware settings instead of depending on
your application program (AP).
Application software that is based on the COM driver will
receive a driver response of “success” when the software uses
any of the Win32 API functions. The firmware will only send
data back to the driver on the host.
Data will be sent first-in-first-out when data comes into the
OnCell G3150A-LTE from the Cellular or Ethernet interface.

ATTENTION
When Max connection is greater than 1, the OnCell G3150A-LTE will use a multi connection
application (i.e., 2 hosts are allowed access to the port at the same time). When using a multi
connection application, the OnCell G3150A-LTE will use the serial communication parameters as
defined here in the web console, and all hosts connected to the port must use identical serial settings.
If one of the hosts opens the COM port with different serial settings, data will not be transmitted
properly.
Ignore jammed IP
This option determines how the port will proceed if multiple
Disable
hosts are connected and one or more host(s) stops responding
when the port is transmitting data. If you select Disable, the
port will wait until the data has been transmitted successfully to
all hosts before transmitting the next group of data. If you
select Enable, the port will ignore the host that stopped
responding and continue data transmission to the other hosts.
Allow driver control
This option determines how the port will proceed if driver
Disable
control commands are received from multiple hosts that are
connected to the port. If Disable is selected, driver control
commands will be ignored. If Enable is selected, control
commands will be accepted, with the most recent command
received taking precedence.
Connection goes
You can configure what happens to the RTS and DTR signals
down
when the Cellular or Ethernet connection goes down. For some
Always High
applications, serial devices need to know the Cellular or
Ethernet link status through RTS or DTR signals sent through
the serial port. Use “always low” if you want the RTS and DTR
signal to change their state to low when the Cellular or Ethernet
connection gets disconnected. Use “always high” if you do not
want the cellular or Ethernet connection status to affect the
RTS or DTR signals.
Packing length
The Packing length setting refers to the maximum amount of 0
data that is allowed to accumulate in the serial port buffer
before sending. At the default of 0 for packet length, no
maximum amount is specified and data in the buffer will be sent
as specified by the delimiter settings or when the buffer is full.
When a packet length between 1 and 1024 bytes is specified,
data in the buffer will be sent as soon it reaches the specified
length.
Delimiter 1
When Delimiter 1 is enabled, the serial port will queue the
Delimiter 2
data in the buffer and send the data to the Cellular or Ethernet
00
port when a specific character, entered in hex format, is
received. A second delimiter character may be enabled and
specified in the Delimiter 2 field, so that both characters act as
the delimiter to control when data should be sent.
ATTENTION
In order to enable a delimiter, packet length must be set to 0. Delimiter 2 should only be enabled in
conjunction with Delimiter 1 and never on its own; otherwise there may be data errors. Even when
a delimiter is enabled, the OnCell G3150A-LTE will still pack and send the data when the amount of
data exceeds 1 KB.

Delimiter process
The Delimiter process field determines how the data is handled Do Nothing
when a delimiter is received. Delimiter 1 must be enabled for
this field to have effect. If Delimiters 1 and 2 are both enabled,
both characters must be received for the delimiter process to
take place.
• Do Nothing: Data in the buffer will be transmitted when the
delimiter is received.
• Delimiter + 1: Data in the buffer will be transmitted after 1
additional byte is received following the delimiter.
• Delimiter + 2: Data in the buffer will be transmitted after 2
additional bytes are received following the delimiter.
• Strip Delimiter: Data in the buffer is first stripped of the
delimiter before being transmitted.
Force transmit
This parameter defines how large a gap in serial
communication the OnCell G3150A-LTE will allow before
packing the serial data in its internal buffer for network
transmission.
As data is received through the serial port, it is stored by the
OnCell G3150A-LTE in the internal buffer. The OnCell
G3150A-LTE transmits the data stored in the buffer via TCP/IP
when the internal buffer is full or as specified by the
force-transmit time.
When this field is set to 0, the force transmit time is disabled
and transmission is determined solely by the data in the
internal buffer. When the force transmit time is set between
1 to 65535, the TCP/IP protocol software will pack the serial
data received for transmission after the gap in serial
communication exceeds the specified force transmit time.
The optimal force-transmit time setting depends on your
application. However, it must be set to a value that is more
than one-character interval within the specified baudrate. For
example, assume that the serial port is set to 1200 bps, 8 data
bits, 1 stop bit, and no parity. In this case, the total number of
bits needed to send a character is 10 bits, and the time required
to transfer one character is (10 (bits) / 1200 (bits/s)) ×
1000 (ms/s) = 8.3 ms. Therefore, you should set the force
transmit time to be greater than 8.3 ms, so in this case, it must
be greater than or equal to 10 ms.
If it is necessary to send a series of characters in the same
packet, the serial device will need to send that series of
characters within the specified force transmit time, and the
total length of data must be less than or equal to the OnCell
G3150A-LTE’s internal buffer size (1 KB per port).

Types of Real COM Connection
This section illustrates the types of Real COM connections you can use, depending on the service you obtain
from your local cellular service provider.
Fixed Public IP for OnCell
If your cellular service provider offers a fixed public IP address after you connect to the cellular network, you
can access the OnCell G3150A-LTE via a host PC using either a private IP or public IP.
Utilize Auto IP report
If your cellular service provider offers a dynamic public IP address after you connect to the cellular network,
you can access the OnCell G3150A-LTE via a host PC using a fixed public IP. Since the IP address of the OnCell
G3150A-LTE is changed each time it is connected to the cellular network, the host IP can be notified of the
change by an Auto IP Report message sent from the OnCell G3150A-LTE. Please refer to Auto IP Report
Settings to see the format of the Auto IP Report Protocol.
Domain name with DDNS
If your cellular service provider offers a public IP address after you connect to the cellular network, you can also
access the OnCell G3150A-LTE using the domain name. To do this, you will need to register with a DDNS
service provider and then enable the DDNS function in the OnCell G3150A-LTE. Please refer to Appendix B for
more information.

RFC 2217 Mode
RFC-2217 mode is similar to Real COM mode in that a driver is used to establish a transparent connection
between a host computer and a serial device by mapping the serial port on the OnCell G3150A-LTE to a local
COM port on the host computer. RFC2217 defines general COM port control options based on the Telnet
protocol. Third party drivers supporting RFC-2217 are widely available on the Internet and can be used to
implement virtual COM mapping to your OnCell G3150A-LTE’s serial port.

Socket Applications
The OnCell G3150A-LTE offers the following modes for socket applications: TCP Server, TCP Client, and UDP.
TCP Server Modes
In TCP Server mode, the serial port on the OnCell G3150A-LTE is assigned a port number. The host computer
initiates contact with the OnCell G3150A-LTE, establishes the connection, and receives data from the serial
device. This operation mode also supports up to 2 simultaneous connections, enabling multiple hosts to collect
data from the same serial device at the same time.
As illustrated in the figure, data transmission proceeds as follows: The host requests a connection from the
OnCell G3150A-LTE, which is configured for TCP Server mode. Once the connection is established, data can be
transmitted in both directions between the host and the OnCell G3150A-LTE.
TCP Server mode includes optional data encryption using SSL

Packet length The Packet length setting refers to the maximum amount of data that is allowed 0
to accumulate in the serial port buffer before sending. At the default of 0 for
packet length, no maximum amount is specified and data in the buffer will be
sent as specified by the delimiter settings or when the buffer is full. When a
packet length between 1 and 1024 bytes is specified, data in the buffer will be
sent as soon it reaches the specified length.
Delimiter 1
When Delimiter 1 is enabled, the serial port will queue the data in the buffer 00
Delimiter 2
and send the data to the Cellular or Ethernet port when a specific character,
entered in hex format, is received. A second delimiter character may be
enabled and specified in the Delimiter 2 field, so that both characters act as
the delimiter to control when data should be sent.
ATTENTION
In order to enable a delimiter, packet length must be set to 0. Delimiter 2 should only be enabled in
conjunction with Delimiter 1 and never on its own; otherwise there may be data errors. Even when
a delimiter is enabled, the OnCell G3150A-LTE will still pack and send the data when the amount of
data exceeds 1 KB.
Delimiter
The Delimiter process field determines how the data is handled when a
process
delimiter is received. Delimiter 1 must be enabled for this field to have effect.
Do Nothing
If Delimiters 1 and 2 are both enabled, both characters must be received for the
delimiter process to take place.
• Do Nothing: Data in the buffer will be transmitted when the delimiter is
received.
• Delimiter + 1: Data in the buffer will be transmitted after 1 additional byte is
received following the delimiter.
• Delimiter + 2: Data in the buffer will be transmitted after 2 additional bytes
are received following the delimiter.
• Strip Delimiter: Data in the buffer is first stripped of the delimiter before being
transmitted.
Force
This parameter defines how large a gap in serial communication the OnCell
transmit
G3150A-LTE will allow before packing the serial data in its internal buffer for
network transmission.
As data is received through the serial port, it is stored by the OnCell
G3150A-LTE in the internal buffer. The OnCell G3150A-LTE transmits the data
stored in the buffer via TCP/IP when the internal buffer is full or as specified by
the force-transmit time.
When this field is set to 0, the force transmit time is disabled and transmission
is determined solely by the data in the internal buffer. When the force transmit
time is set between
1 to 65535, the TCP/IP protocol software will pack the serial data received for
transmission after the gap in serial communication exceeds the specified force
transmit time.
The optimal force-transmit time setting depends on your application. However,
it must be set to a value that is more than one-character interval within the
specified baudrate. For example, assume that the serial port is set to 1200 bps,
8 data bits, 1 stop bit, and no parity. In this case, the total number of bits
needed to send a character is 10 bits, and the time required to transfer one
character is (10 (bits) / 1200 (bits/s)) × 1000 (ms/s) = 8.3 ms.
Therefore, you should set the force transmit time to be greater than 8.3 ms, so
in this case, it must be greater than or equal to 10 ms.
If it is necessary to send a series of characters in the same packet, the serial
device will need to send that series of characters within the specified force

Types of TCP Server Connection
Fixed Public IP for the OnCell
If your cellular service provider offers a fixed public IP address after you connect to the cellular network, you
can access the OnCell G3150A-LTE from a host PC using either a private IP or public IP.
Using Auto IP report
If your cellular service provider offers a dynamic public IP address after you connect to the cellular network,
you can access the OnCell G3150A-LTE from a host PC using a fixed public IP. Since the IP address of the OnCell
G3150A-LTE is changed every time it is connected to the cellular network, the host IP can be aware of the
change by the Auto IP Report message sent from the OnCell G3150A-LTE. Please refer to Auto IP report
settings for the format of the Auto IP Report Protocol.
Domain name with DDNS
If your cellular service provider offers a public IP address after you connect to the cellular network, you can also
use the domain name to access the OnCell G3150A-LTE. You would need to register with a DDNS service
provider and then enable the DDNS function in the OnCell G3150A-LTE. Please refer to Appendix B for more
information.
Connecting TCP client and TCP server within the same cellular service provider
In order to connect properly, the IP addresses of the two OnCell devices must belong to the same subnetwork.
To ensure that this is the case, use the same cellular service provider to connect the devices to the network. In
addition, you will need to request that the cellular service provider provide you with two private IP addresses
(e.g., 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.1.2).

TCP Client Modes
In TCP Client mode, the OnCell G3150A-LTE can actively establish a TCP connection to a pre-defined host
computer when serial data arrives. After the data has been transferred, the OnCell G3150A-LTE can
automatically disconnect from the host computer by using the Inactivity time settings.
As illustrated in the figure below, data transmission proceeds as follows:
1. The OnCell G3150A-LTE, configured for TCP Client mode, requests a connection to the host.
2. Once the connection is established, data can be transmitted in both directions between the host and the
OnCell G3150A-LTE.
TCP Client mode includes optional data encryption using SSL.

for a response to “keep alive” packets before closing the TCP
connection. The OnCell G3150A-LTE checks connection status
by sending periodic “keep alive” packets. If the remote host
does not respond to the packet within the time specified in this
field, the OnCell G3150A-LTE will force the existing TCP
connection to close. For socket and device control modes, the
OnCell G3150A-LTE will listen for another TCP connection from
another host after closing the connection. If TCP alive check
time is set to 0, the TCP connection will remain open and will
not send any “keep alive” packets.

Traps can be used to signal abnormal conditions (notifications) to a management station. This trap-driven
notification can make your network more efficient.
Because a management station usually takes care of a large number of devices that have a large number of
objects, it will be overloading for the management station to poll or send requests to query every object on
every device. It would be better if the managed device agent could notify the management station by sending
a message known as a trap for the event.

Dynamic Domain Name Server
This appendix explains how to use the OnCell G3150A-LTE with DDNS. When the OnCell G3150A-LTE receives
its IP address from a DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server, remote servers will be unable to
access it using a fixed IP address. With DDNS (Dynamic Domain Name Server), a remote server can access the
OnCell G3150A-LTE using its domain name instead of its IP address.
The following is a summary of the process:
1. The OnCell G3150A-LTE sends a request for an IP address to the DHCP server. At the same time, it notifies
the DHCP server of its desired server name (“OC3100” in the illustration) according to the option 12
standard.
2. The DHCP server replies with the IP address that is assigned to the OnCell G3150A-LTE, along with the
domain name (“moxa.com” in the illustration) and the IP addresses for the DNS server and gateway.
3. If the OnCell G3150A-LTE has authorization to update the DNS server, it will register its FQDN (Fully
Qualified Domain Name) with the DNS server. The OnCell G3150A-LTE’s FQDN will be in the format server
name.domain name (“OC3100.moxa.com” in the illustration).
4. If the OnCell G3150A-LTE is not authorized to update the DNS server, the DHCP server can be used to
update the DNS server. The DHCP server will register the DNS server with the PTR RR (the record of request
for a domain name with IP address).

Well-Known Port Numbers
In this appendix, we provide a list of port numbers that may cause network problems if you set the OnCell
G3150A-LTE to one of these ports. Refer to RFC 1700 standards for a list of well-known port numbers or to the
following introduction from the IANA:
The port numbers are divided into three ranges: the Well Known Ports, the Registered Ports, and the Dynamic
and/or Private Ports.
The Well Known Ports range from 0 through 1023.
The Registered Ports range from 1024 through 49151.
The Dynamic and/or Private Ports range from 49152 through 65535.
The Well Known Ports are assigned by the IANA, and on most systems, can only be used by system processes
or by programs executed by privileged users. The following table shows famous port numbers among the listed
well-known port numbers. For more details, please visit the IANA website at
