2. General Description
The iBoot-DC is a network attached, IP addressed, web controlled DC power switch. Anyone with a web
browser can access iBoot-DC to perform power On, Off or Power Cycle (Reboot or Power Burst). iBootDC uses two levels of password for security.
iBoot-DC is compatible with DC voltages from 5 to 48VDC. Both Positive and Negative DC voltage
sources are supported. A simple Web browser interface makes it easy to control power from anywhere in
the world with a click of a mouse. iBoot-DC also supports Telnet for text commands, as well as
Dataprobe’s Exchange Protocol (DxP) for interfacing to a variety of Dataprobe products and custom
software development.

Uses for iBoot
Remote reboot of any device, routers, servers, kiosks, etc. The device to be rebooted need not be
network attached.
Secure sensitive devices by keeping them powered off when not in use. This prevents hackers from
seeing them at all times.
Power down equipment when not needed for power savings and to save on wear and tear.
Power up alert devices like sirens, lamps, messages; or control environmental system like heaters,
coolers pumps, etc.
Multiple Control Options
In addition to the Web control capabilities, iBoot-DC features several other means to operate automatically
or under computer control.
AutoPing: The AutoPing feature allows iBoot-DC to automatically detect failed equipment and perform a
timed reboot or other power control function (like turning on an indicator or siren). You set 1 or 2 IP
addresses to be periodically pinged. When iBoot-DC no longer detects a response from the address(es),
the programmed power control function is actuated.
Telnet: iBoot’s Command Line Interface (CLI) allows direct control and setup through Telnet.
Dataprobe Exchange Protocol: iBoot-DC supports the Dataprobe Exchange Protocol (DxP) This protocol
allows Dataprobe products to communicate across networks, and allows developers to design custom
applications to integrate iBoot-DC into custom applications. For more information about DxP, contact
Dataprobe Applications Engineering and Support.

Initial Configuration
The Device Management Utility (DMU), available
online at http://dataprobe.com/support/iboot.html,
provides the easiest means to find and configure
your iBoot-DC for use. It can discover all the iBoots
on your network, display the current IP address of
each, and allow setting of a valid IP address.
Install and run the Device Management Utility:
1. Download DMUSetup.exe
2. Run DMUSetup.exe
3. Run the DMU
Note: The IP address can only be set within the first
two minutes of powering up the iBoot-DC or pressing
the reset button (see Section 11). The Setup Utility
will only work with iBoots on the same physical
subnet as the PC.
DMU Discovers Dataprobe Devices
on your Network
Once the DMU is run, click on Device | Discover to
display all the iBoots on your network. The DMU will
display the Location Name of the iBoot, The product
ID and Version Number, the current IP Address, and
the MAC Address. Factory defaulted iBoots will
display with the name New iBoot-DC and have the
factory default IP address of 192.168.1.254. If the IP
address was assigned by a DHCP server, no
changes to the IP Address are required.
The IP address field also indicates the port for web
access that is used by the iBoot. The standard port
for web browser control is factory default Port 80.
Enter New IP Address for iBoot
Change the IP Address
1. Click on the row containing the iBoot-DC to be
set. The row will become highlighted.
2. From the menu select Set | IP Address
3. Enter the new IP Address into the form. Click OK
when done.
4. A confirmation box is displayed. Click OK to
clear the box.
Once the IP Address is set, other all other operational
features of the iBoot-DC can be set up. Click on
Discover again to refresh the display, highlight the
desired iBoot-DC and click on Manage | Launch
Browser. See Section 7 to configure the iBoot.
IP Address Successfully Set
The DMU can also be used to return an iBoot-DC to its Factory Default condition. This can be used to
recover an iBoot-DC with a lost password. Highlight an iBoot-DC from the display and select Set | Factory
Defaults. This must be done within the first two minutes of powering up the iBoot or pressing the reset
button.

Other ways to set the IP Address
1. Automatically from a DHCP Server
2. Web Browser via the Set-up Page
3. Command Line Interface (Telnet)
iBoot-DC comes with factory installed IP address 192.168.1.254.
Setting the IP address from a DHCP Server
A DHCP server will automatically assign an IP address (dynamic address) as well as Subnet Mask and
Gateway to the iBoot-DC. If you reboot the iBoot-DC with the IP Mode set for DHCP, the DHCP server will
be able to assign an IP address. Once an IP address is assigned, you must check the DHCP server or
use the iBoot-DC DUM to see what address is assigned to the iBoot. You can lock the iBoot-DC to the
current address, by selecting IP Mode = Static without changing the addresses. Set the IP Mode either by
using the web setup page, or via Telnet commands.
Setting the IP address using Web Browser
To set the IP address using a Web Browser, connect the Ethernet connection to your local network and
apply power to iBoot.
Open your browser and access iBoot-DC by entering the default (192.168.1.254) or current IP address into
your browser's Address window. Enter the administrator credentials, click on Setup and follow the
instructions on Page 10.

5. Web Browser Operation
5.1.
Password Protection
iBoot-DC uses two username/password credential sets, one for power
control only (User) and one that also provides access to the setup
functions (Admin). This configuration can be changed to require
Administrator credentials at all times or allow unsecured User level
control. See section 7.12.
Default Credentials:
Role
Administrator
User
Username (fixed)
admin
user
Password (settable)
admin
user
a
d
m
i
n
Enter Username and Password
Open your browser and enter the IP address of iBoot-DC into the address bar. If you have changed the IP
address by any of the methods described, enter that address, otherwise, use the default IP address
192.168.1.254
Enter the username and password when prompted. When the proper username/password is received the
Control and Status Page is displayed.
iBoot-DC uses an inactivity timer for security. This timeout is user selectable from 0 to 99 minutes.
Setting to zero disables the timeout feature. When there is no activity for the set time in minutes, the user
is automatically logged out and the username and password will need to be entered again for access. This
is to prevent accidental lockout by leaving the user logged in.
As the iBoot-DC allows only one Web user logged in at any time, use caution when disabling the
timeout feature, as it is possible to lock out other users by forgetting to logout. Closing the
browser will not log the user out and will lock out web access. If you do become locked out,
access the iBoot-DC via Telnet and reboot the unit, or press the reset button (see Section 11).
5.2.
Mobile Browser Support
The standard web pages illustrated in this manual are for
screen sizes 700 pixels wide and greater. For devices with
screen widths below 700 pixels, the iBoot-DC uses a set of
mobile browser pages. The iBoot-DC automatically detects
the screen size and redirects automatically to the mobile
pages. The mobile pages do not support the setup functions.
To access the setup functions, or to view the full desktop site,
click on the Full Site button.

Status page is displayed. (Only one person can
be connected to the iBoot-DC at a time.).
This page provides automatic updates every 1
second.
To control the power, click on the appropriate
button. During power cycling, the Power Status
bar will indicate the temporary status, with a blue
background. Once the cycle is complete, the
status bar will revert to its original condition. To
abort a power cycle, click on either Power On or
Power Off buttons.
If the AutoPing feature is in use, the page will
also display the current status, OK or Failed, for each AutoPing in use, with a counter of how many times
action was triggered. If connecting with the Admin credentials, reset buttons for the Trigger counter is
provided.
If the iBoot-DC is connected to a time server (see Section 7.5), The Home page will also show the five
most recent history events, including the Outlet, Action, User and Time/Date of each event. The iBoot-DC
holds the last 32 events in memory. The user can access a complete history webpage, download the
history in a .csv file, or clear the history.
Navigation Buttons:
Refresh: Use the Refresh button to obtain the latest status of iBoot. Using your browser's refresh button
can lead to inadvertent power switching. If an NTP server is being used, the time of the last refresh will be
shown in the upper right corner.

Linkback URL: This setting allows control of the hotlink displayed on the Goodbye page. It allows use of
the public IP address or DNS name instead of the internal IP Address of the iBoot-DC, which is the default
setting. If this setting is left blank, the hotlink will be the IP Address of the unit. Enter up to 128 characters.
Telnet Port: This setting is used to allow access to the iBoot-DC via telnet by ports other than standard 23.
DxP Port: This setting is used to allow access to the iBoot-DC via Dataprobe Exchange Protocol (DxP) via
ports other than standard 9100.
Note: All of the TCP/IP Settings require a reboot of the iBoot-DC, after clicking Save. A Reboot
button will appear at the bottom of the page. The new settings will not take effect until the unit is
rebooted. Reboot will not affect the power position of the iBoot-DC. Upon Clicking Reboot, the
Googbye page is displayed with a link to re-login.
6.3.
AutoPing
The AutoPing feature allows iBoot-DC to
automatically detect failed equipment and
perform a timed reboot or other power control
function (like turning on an indicator or siren).
You set one or two IP addresses to be
periodically pinged. When iBoot-DC no longer
detects a response from these addresses, the
programmed power control function is actuated.
The two addresses can be AND or OR linked so
that both (AND) or either (OR) need to fail in
order to take the selected action.
Examples:
Use AutoPing as server monitor: iBoot-DC is
installed with the device it monitors and
automatically reboots if there is no response.
Ideal for: Kiosks & Servers
Use Auto-Ping as service monitor: iBoot-DC is
installed with the device to be rebooted, but
pings a remote host to test the communication
channel. Ideal for: DSL & Cable Modem
Verification.
iBoot-DC monitors network device and powers up
alarm or redundant system when there is no
response Ideal for: Hot Standby Servers,
Environmental Control, Alert for any Network
Failure.
