Quick Configuration
Warning: Disregard the procedures in this section if you have APC InfraStruXure®
Manager as part of your system. See the InfraStruXure Manager’s documentation for more
information.
Overview
You must configure the following TCP/IP settings before the Automatic Transfer Switch can operate on
a network:
• IP address of the Automatic Transfer Switch
• Subnet mask
• Default gateway
Note: If a default gateway is unavailable, use the IP address of a computer that is
located on the same subnet as the Automatic Transfer Switch and that is usually running.
The Automatic Transfer Switch uses the default gateway to test the network when traffic
is very light. See “Watchdog Features” in the “Introduction” of the Automatic Transfer
Switch User’s Guide for more information about the watchdog role of the default
gateway.
TCP/IP configuration methods
Use one of the following methods to define the TCP/IP settings needed by the Automatic Transfer
Switch:
• Device IP Configuration Wizard (See “Device IP Configuration Wizard” on page 7.)
• BOOTP or DHCP server (See “BOOTP & DHCP configuration” on page 7.)
• Local computer (See “Local access to the control console” on page 12.)
• Networked computer (See “Remote access to the control console” on page 13.)
6
Automatic Transfer Switch—Installation and Quick Start
Device IP Configuration Wizard
You can use the Device IP Configuration Wizard on a Windows NT® 4.0, Windows 2000®, Windows
2003, or Windows XP computer to discover unconfigured Automatic Transfer Switches and configure
their basic TCP/IP settings.
To configure one or more Automatic Transfer Switches by exporting configuration settings
from a configured Automatic Transfer Switch, see “How to Export Configuration Settings” in
the User’s Guide on the Utility CD.
1. Insert the APC Automatic Transfer Switch Utility CD into a computer on your network.
2. Select the Device IP Configuration Wizard from the main menu.
3. Wait for the Wizard to discover the first unconfigured Automatic Transfer Switch, then follow the
on-screen instructions.
Note: If you leave the Start a Web browser when finished option enabled, you can
use apc for both the User Name and Password to access the Automatic Transfer
Switch through your browser.
BOOTP & DHCP configuration
The Boot Mode Setting, a TCP/IP option in the Automatic Transfer Switches Network menu, identifies
how the TCP/IP settings will be defined. The possible settings are Manual, DHCP only, BOOTP only,
and DHCP & BOOTP (the default setting).
Note: The DHCP & BOOTP setting assumes that a properly configured DHCP or BOOTP
server is available to provide TCP/IP settings to Automatic Transfer Switches.
If these servers are unavailable, see:
•“Device IP Configuration Wizard” on this page.
•“Local access to the control console” on page 12.
• “Remote access to the control console” on page 13.
With Boot Mode set to DHCP & BOOTP, the Automatic Transfer Switch attempts to discover a properly
configured server. It first searches for a BOOTP server, then a DHCP server, and repeats this pattern until
it discovers a BOOTP or DHCP server.
For more information, see “BOOTP” on page 8 or “DHCP” on page 8.
Automatic Transfer Switch—Installation and Quick Start
7
BOOTP. You can use an RFC951-compliant BOOTP server to configure the TCP/IP settings for the
Automatic Transfer Switch.
Note: The DHCP & BOOTP setting assumes that a properly configured DHCP or BOOTP
server is available to provide TCP/IP settings to Automatic Transfer Switches.
1. Enter the Automatic Transfer Switches MAC and IP addresses, the subnet mask and default
gateway settings, and an optional Bootup file name in the BOOTPTAB file of the BOOTP server.
For the MAC address, look on the bottom of the Automatic Transfer Switch or on the
Quality Assurance slip included in the package.
2. When the Automatic Transfer Switch reboots, the BOOTP server provides it with the TCP/IP
settings.
– If you specified a bootup file name, the Automatic Transfer Switch attempts to transfer that
file from the BOOTP server using TFTP or FTP. The Automatic Transfer Switch assumes all
settings specified in the bootup file.
To create the bootup file, see your BOOTP server documentation.
– If you did not specify a bootup file name, the Automatic Transfer Switch can be configured
remotely by using Telnet or by using the Web interface: User Name and Password are both
apc, by default.
DHCP. You can use a RFC2131/RFC2132-compliant DHCP server to configure the TCP/IP settings for
the Automatic Transfer Switch.
This section briefly summarizes the Automatic Transfer Switch communication with a DHCP
server. For more detail about how a DHCP server is used to configure the network settings for
an Automatic Transfer Switch, see “DHCP Configuration” in the Automatic Transfer Switch
User’s Guide.
1. An Automatic Transfer Switch sends out a DHCP request that uses the following to identify
itself:
– A Vendor Class Identifier (APC by default)
– A Client Identifier (by default, the Automatic Transfer Switches MAC address value)
– A User Class Identifier (by default, the identification of the Automatic Transfer Switches
application firmware)
8
Automatic Transfer Switch—Installation and Quick Start
2. A properly configured DHCP server responds with a DHCP offer that includes all of the settings
that the Automatic Transfer Switch needs for network communication. The DHCP offer also
includes the Vendor Specific Information option (DHCP option 43). By default, the Automatic
Transfer Switch will ignore DHCP offers that do not encapsulate the APC cookie in the Vendor
Specific Information option using the following hexidecimal format:
Option 43 = 01 04 31 41 50 43
where
– the first byte (01) is the code
– the second byte (04) is the length
– the remaining bytes (31 41 50 43 ) are the APC cookies
See your DHCP server documentation to add code to the Vendor Specific
Information option.
To disable the APC cookie requirement, see “Remote access to the control
console” on page 13. To change the control console DHCP Cookie Is setting, use
the Advanced option in the TCP/IP menu. See “Remote access to the control
console” on page 13.

How to Access the Automatic Transfer Switch
Interfaces
Overview
After the Automatic Transfer Switch is running on your network, you can use the interfaces summarized
here to access the unit.
For more information on the interfaces, see the User’s Guide.
Web interface
As your browser, you can use Microsoft® Internet Explorer 5.0 (and higher) or Netscape® 6.x to access
the Network Management Card through its Web interface. Other commonly available browsers also may
work but have not been fully tested by APC.
To use the Web browser to configure the Automatic Transfer Switch options or to view the event log, you
can use either of the following:
• The HTTP protocol (enabled by default), which provides authentication by user name and
password but no encryption.
• The more secure HTTPS protocol, which provides extra security through Secure Sockets Layer
(SSL) and encrypts user names, passwords, and data being transmitted. It also provides
authentication of Network Management Cards by means of digital certificates.
To access the Web interface and configure the security of your device on the network:
1. Address the Network Management Card by its IP address or DNS name (if configured).
2. Enter the user name and password (by default, apc and apc for an Administrator, or device and
apc for a Device Manager).
3. Select and configure the type of security you want. (This option is available only for
Administrators.)
See the chapter entitled “Security” in the User’s Guide for information on choosing
and setting up your network security. Use the Web/SSL option of the Network menu
to enable or disable the HTTP or HTTPS protocols.
10
Automatic Transfer Switch—Installation and Quick Start
Telnet/SSH
You can access the control console through Telnet or Secure SHell (SSH), depending on which is
enabled. (An Administrator can enable these access methods through the Telnet/SSH option of the
Network menu.) By default, Telnet is enabled. Enabling SSH automatically disables Telnet.
Telnet for basic access. Telnet provides the basic security of authentication by user name and
password, but not the high-security benefits of encryption. To use Telnet to access an Automatic Transfer
Switches control console from any computer on the same subnet:
1. At a command prompt, use the following command line, and press ENTER:
telnet address
As address, use the Network Management Card IP address or DNS name (if configured).
2. Enter the user name and password (by default, apc and apc for an Administrator, or device and
apc for a Device Manager).
SSH for high-security access. If you use the high security of SSL for the Web interface, use Secure
SHell (SSH) for access to the control console. SSH encrypts user names, passwords, and transmitted
data.
The interface, user accounts, and user access rights are the same whether you access the control console
through SSH or Telnet, but to use SSH, you must first configure SSH and have an SSH client program
installed on your computer.
See the User’s Guide for more information on configuring and using SSH.
SNMP
After you add the PowerNet MIB to a standard SNMP MIB browser, you can use that browser for SNMP
access to the Automatic Transfer Switch. The default read community name is public; the default read/
write community name is private.
Note: If you enable SSL and SSH for their high-security authentication and encryption,
disable SNMP. Allowing SNMP access to the Automatic Transfer Switch compromises the
high security you implement by choosing SSL and SSH. To disable SNMP, you must be an
Administrator; use the SNMP option of the Network menu.
Automatic Transfer Switch—Installation and Quick Start
11
FTP/SCP
You can use FTP (enabled by default) or Secure CoPy (SCP) to transfer new firmware to the Automatic
Transfer Switch, or to access a copy of the Automatic Transfer Switches event logs. SCP provides the
higher security of encrypted data transmission and is enabled automatically when you enable SSH.
Note: If you enable SSL and SSH for their high-security authentication and encryption,
disable FTP. Allowing file transfer to the Automatic Transfer Switch through FTP
compromises the high security you implement by choosing SSL and SSH. To disable FTP, you
must be an Administrator; use the FTP Server option of the Network menu.
To access the Automatic Transfer Switch through FTP or SCP, the default user name and password are
apc and apc for an Administrator, or device and apc for a Device Manager. In the command line, use the
IP address of the unit.
See the User’s Guide to use FTP or SCP to transfer firmware files to the Network
Management Card or to retrieve log files from the Network Management Card.
Local access to the control console
1. Select a serial port at the local computer and disable any service that uses that port.
2. Connect APC serial cable 940-1000B to the Automatic Transfer Switch serial port and to the
serial port on the local computer. Run a terminal program (such as Windows HyperTerminal®)
and configure the selected port for 19200 bps, 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit, and no flow
control, and save the changes.
3. Press ENTER and log on as the Automatic Transfer Switch administrator. Select option 11, Web
config, from the main menu and then disconnect the terminal program.
4. Reconfigure the selected port for 2400 bps, 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit, and no flow control,
and reconnect HyperTerminal.
5. Press ENTER to display the User Name prompt.
Note: The Automatic Transfer Switch AP7701 and AP7722 is not configurable
through a terminal program. Use other options available for configuring the unit:
• See “BOOTP & DHCP configuration” on page 7 for configuration using BOOTP and
DHCP.
• ARP can be used if an APC SmartSlot enabled UPS is available. Install the Network
Management Card to the UPS and configure the IP settings. Install the configured
Network Management Card in the Automatic Transfer Switch.
• If an APC Expansion or Triple Chassis is available install the Network Management
Card and connect the chassis to a local computer or server. Configure the card using a
terminal program. Install the configured Network Management Card in the Automatic
Transfer Switch.
12
Automatic Transfer Switch—Installation and Quick Start
Remote access to the control console
From any computer on the same subnet as the Automatic Transfer Switch, you can use ARP and Ping to
assign an IP address to a Automatic Transfer Switch, and then use Telnet to access that Automatic
Transfer Switches control console and configure the needed TCP/IP settings.
Note: After the Automatic Transfer Switch has its IP address configured, you can use Telnet,
without first using ARP and Ping, to access that Automatic Transfer Switch.
Use ARP to define an IP address for the Automatic Transfer Switch, and use the Automatic Transfer
Switches MAC address in the ARP command. For example, to define an IP address of 156.205.14.141
for a Automatic Transfer Switch that has a MAC address of 00 c0 b7 63 9f 67, use one of the following
commands:
– Windows command format:
arp -s 156.205.14.141 00-c0-b7-63-9f-67
– LINUX command format:
arp -s 156.205.14.141 00:c0:b7:63:9f:67
Automatic Transfer Switch—Installation and Quick Start

Configuring the ATS
Configuring sensitivity
The sensitivity setting controls how tolerant the ATS is of fluctuations in power before it switches to the
secondary power source. Configure the sensitivity range for your ATS using the Switch Configuration
menu. When sensitivity is set to low, the ATS will wait 5 ms before switching to the alternate power
source when there is a disturbance in the power supply. When sensitivity is set to high, the ATS will wait
3 ms before transferring power. The default setting is high.
Configuring voltage transfer range
The voltage transfer range determines the acceptable RMS voltages for the ATS. When voltage moves
outside the specified range, the ATS switches to the secondary power source. Configure the voltage
transfer range using the Switch Configuration menu. The ATS can be set to narrow, medium, or wide
voltage ranges depending on the power conditions of your system.
Note: The default setting of the voltage range is Medium.
