QUICK START: DS-RPC
by Bay Technical Associates
For those Administrators who have requested the bare minimum for this type of equipment, follow
these steps exactly. If this is a new unit shipped directly from Baytech, follow the steps. If this is a
previously own unit, perform a factory reset to clear out any users and passwords still in the unit.
RPC Controller Configuration:
Before continuing your System Administrator needs to tell you to use DHCP or give you an IP
Address, Subnet Address, and Gateway Address.
1. Connect the 9FRJ45PC-4 or 9FRJ45PC-1 adapter to your PC.
2. Connect the supplied rollover flat cable RJ08X007 to the adapter and to the EIA232 serial port
on the Baytech HOST Module.
3. Use terminal emulation software to access the unit, (i.e. Microsoft Hyper-terminal). Set the PC
serial port configuration to the following: 9600 bps, 8 data bits, 1stop bit and no parity.
4. If you get only a blinking cursor Press ‘Enter’. If still only a blinking cursor, Type 5 semi-colons
(;),The Attention Character will not echo on the screen. There is a one second delay before the
menu is displayed. You should see a menu similar to (Figure 1).
5. Select ‘DS-RPC’ and type ‘config’ at the prompt for the configuration menu. You should see a
menu similar to (Figure 2).
6. Select Manage Users. You should see a menu similar to (Figure 3)
7. IMPORTANT NOTE: the first user added will be the ADMIN user. Type ‘A’ and press ‘Enter’.
Type the name of the admin user. The name is case sensitive.
8. Select the number of the user. You should see a menu similar to (Figure 4).
9. Select ‘Add Outlet(s)’ to add a few outlets (i.e. 1,2,4) and press ‘Enter’ or select ‘Add All
Outlet’. A ‘Y’ signifies the outlet has been assigned to the user.
10. Press ‘Enter’ Repeat steps 6 thru 9 to add other users.
11. Press ‘Enter’ until get to the Host module network menu (Figure 1).
At this point you have enough basic configurations needed to operate the RPC part of the DSRPC unit.
Serial Setup
• Connect the 9FRJ45PC-4 adapter to the user’s computer
• Connect the Host Module’s EIA-232 port to the adapter via the RJ08X007 rolled flat ribbon
cable.
• Use terminal emulation software to access the unit, 9600 bps, 8 data bits, 1stop bit and no
parity.
NOTE: At any time during the session you need to go to another menu, use the Attention
Character = semi-colon (;). Press the attention character key 5 consecutive times to get back to
the main status menu.
NOTE: User Name and Password feature is case sensitive. Default is ‘root/baytech’, If the DSRPC login is enabled, the default User Name is ‘admin’.
