2.7 IP Configuration
User can do the network IP settings via V-100 or web pages. This chapter describes the usage of web pages. The
default IP settings are as follows.
2.7.1
IP Configuration
The IP serial console requires a valid IP address to operate within the user’s network environment. If the
IP address is not readily available, contact the system administrator to obtain a valid IP address for the IP
serial console. Please note that the IP serial console requires a unique IP address to connect to the user’s
network.
There are two types of IP assignments user can choose from:
■
■
Static IP
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)
The IP serial console is initially defaulted to Static IP mode, with a static IP address of 192.168.123.211.
*The onfiguration setting will not go into effect until clicking the button Save to flash & reboot.
2.7.2
SMTP Configuration
The IP serial console (IPCS) can send an email notification when the number of system log messages
reaches to certain value and/or when an alarm message is created due to an issue with serial port data.
The user must configure a valid SMTP server to send these automatically generated emails.
The “device mail address” must be registered to SMTP server.
The IPCS supports two SMTP server types:
■
■
SMTP without authentication
SMTP with authentication
The SMTP user name and SMTP user password are required when selecting SMTP with Authentication.
Secondary SMTP configuration is also provided so that mail can be delivered even when the primary SMTP
server fails. Only when the primary SMTP server fails, the secondary SMTP server will be tried for mail
delivery.

2.8 IP Filtering
2.8.1
IP Filtering
The IP filtering function keeps unauthorized hosts from accessing to the IP serial console by specifying IP
filtering rules. It is important to fully understand what an IP filter is. If you don’t fully understand this, you will get
unexpected results against your original plan.
The IP address/Mask specifies the host range by entering base host IP address followed by / and subnet mask.
The host IP addresses to be filtered based on the rule defined. The table below gives examples of IP address/
Mask settings.
Specified host range

The Port is a port or port range of the IP serial console which hosts try to access to.
Chain rule
The chain rule determines whether the access from the hosts is allowed or not. It can be one of the these two
values :
■
■
ACCEPT :
access allowed
DROP :
access not allowed
When the IPCS receives a TCP packet, it will process the packet with the chain rule depicted below. The
process ordering is important; The packet will enter the chain rule 1 first, if meet the rule then take action directly,
otherwise go to chain rule 2.

2.8 IP Filtering
2.8.2
IP Filtering
Users can add a new IP filtering rule by setting the properties at adding line and then clicking the button
Add. User can remove a rule by clicking the button Remove.
In the example above, no host is allowed to connect to the IPCS through http (port 80) by the #3 rule but the
hosts whose subnet is 192.168.1.x is allowed by the #1 rule and 192.168.2.x by the rule #2. So, only the
hosts which elong to the subnet 192.168.1.x or 192.168.2.x can access to the IPCS through http by the #1,
#2 and #3 rules.
2.9 Web Server Configuration
The IP serial console Web server supports both HTTP and HTTPS (HTTP over SSL) services simultaneously. Users can select
user authentication method for the IPCS web pages login. The IP serial console currently provides authentication methods of
Local and RADIUS.
2.9.1
Local
The IP serial console always refers to the local database for the web server login user authentication.
P.14
CS-116
2.9 Web Server Configuration
2.9.2
Dynamic DNS
When users connect the IP serial console (IPCS) to a DSL line or use a DHCP configuration, and get a dynamic IP
address from the network, the IP address may not the same as previous. It can therefore be very difficult to know if an
IP address has changed, or what the new IP address is.
A Dynamic DNS service is provided by various ISPs or organizations to deal with the above issue. By using the Dynamic DNS service, users can access the IPCS through the hostname registered in the Dynamic DNS Server regardless of any IP address change.
By default, the IPCS only supports Dynamic DNS service offered at Dynamic DNS Network Services, LLC
(www.dyndns.org).
To use the Dynamic DNS service provided by Dynamic DNS Network Services, the user must set up an account.
In their Members’ NIC (Network Information Center - http://members.dyndns.org). The user may then add a new Dynamic DNS Host link after logging in to their Dynamic DNS Network Services Members NIC.
After enabling the Dynamic DNS service in the Dynamic DNS Configuration menu, the user must enter the registered
Domain Name, User Name, and Password. After applying the configuration change, users can access the IPCS using
only the Domain Name. The DNS (Domain Name Systems) is the internet service that translates your domain names
into IP addresses.
2.9.3
HTTPS / SSL
The IP serial console Web server supports both HTTP and HTTPS (HTTP over SSL) services simultaneously.
The user can to enable or disable security function of each port individually. HTTPS provides a secure, encrypted web
interface over SSL (secure sockets layer). The following steps to use the HTTPS protocol:
1.
Change the URL from “http://xxx.xxx.xxx/” to “https://xxx.xxx.xxx/”.
2.
If connect success, it will show up the “Lock” icon on the right-hand side of the taskbar.

RADIUS
Authentication is the process of identifying an individual, usually based on a username and password. The IP
serial console supports various authentication options, such as Local, RADIUS, to authenticate the users
who access the serial port. When the authentication is set to Local, the IPCS will use its own user list to
authenticate a user. If configured otherwise, the IPCS will request authentication from the external
authentication servers (i.e. RADIUS).

Authentication is the process of identifying an individual, usually based on a username and password. The IP
serial console supports various authentication options, such as Local, RADIUS, to authenticate the users who
access the serial port.
When the authentication is set to Local, the IP serial console will use its own user list to authenticate a user. If
configured otherwise, the IPCS will request authentication from the external authentication servers (i.e. RADIUS)
Figure below shows conceptually the user authentication process when using an external authentication server.

Operation Modes
The IP serial console unit provides four types of operation modes. These are described in the
following sections.
Note :
■
■
The Power Control Mode is available in port #1 only.
The last port (e.g., Port #16 of IPCS-16) can also be used as External ESP (Entry Serial Port) in
Serial-to-Serial operation mode. Refer to the section Serial-to-Serial Function for details.
P.19
CS-116
2.10 Serial Port Configuration
Console Server Mode
Configuring a serial port as a console server creates a TCP socket on the IP serial console unit that listens for a
Telnet or SSH client connection. When you connect to the TCP socket, you have access to the device attached to
the serial port as if the device were connected directly to the network. Data stream can be sent back and forth
between the device and the Telnet/SSH client program. Raw TCP is also supported with the Console Server
Mode.
For console server mode, the user can configure the following parameters:
Listening TCP port number
The user can also access a serial port through the IP address of the IP serial console and the listening TCP port
number of the serial port. If the IP address of the IP serial console and the serial port are assigned as
192.168.123.100 and listening TCP port number 4001, the user can connect to the port as follows:
telnet 192.168.123.100 4001
Protocol
Select Telnet, SSH or Raw TCP as the protocol. If the users are using a Telnet client program, select Telnet. If the
users are using an SSH client program, select SSH. When Raw TCP is selected, direct TCP socket
communication is available between the IPCS and the remote host.
Inactivity timeout
In order to avoid a client holding a TCP connection while no data transferring on the serial port for long time. If the
inactivity timeout is enabled, and no data activity between the IP serial console and the Telnet/ SSH client for the
specified inactivity timeout interval (no data activity in the serial port), the existing TCP session will automatically
be closed. If the user wants to maintain the connection indefinitely, configure the inactivity timeout period to 0.
TCP Keep-alive (no configuration required)
In order to avoid TCP connection lockup, the IP serial console will continue to check the connection status
between the Telnet/ SSH client and the IP serial console by sending “keep alive” packets periodically. If the Telnet/
SSH client does not answer the packets in a period of time, system will assume that the connection is down
unintentionally. The IPCS will close the existing Telnet/SSH connection, regardless of the inactivity setting. So the
TCP connection won’t be deadlocked when user’s application closed improperly or the network link interrupted.
Terminal Server Mode
In terminal server mode, the IP serial console will unit’s serial port is configured to wait for data from the device
connected to the port. If data arrive is detected, the IPCS unit starts a TCP session as a Telnet or SSH client to a
pre-defined server. The server must be defined by you before the port can be configured for a Telnet or SSH client.
This mode is used when you want to access servers on the network from a serial terminal. Raw TCP is also
supported with the Terminal Server Mode.
Dial-in Modem Mode
In this mode, the IP serial console unit assumes an external modem is attached to the serial port and is waiting for
a dial-in connection from a remote site. When a user dials-in using a terminal application, the IP serial console unit
accepts the connection and displays the appropriate prompt or menu for you that logged in.

To connect the serial device to the IPCS serial port, the serial port parameters of the IPCS should match
exactly to that of the serial device attached.
2.10.6
Port Logging
With the Port logging feature while in console server mode, the data receiving from the tracking serial port
will be buffered in IPCS memory. The user can also define keywords for each serial port that will trigger an
email notification if the keyword is found in the logged data. This will enable the user to monitor the data from
the attached device. The Port logging feature is valid and visible only if the operation mode of the serial port is
configured to console server mode.

Port Logging
If Port logging option is enabled, the user can let the IP serial console to search a defined keyword from the
port logging data and send an email to an administrator by Port event handling configurations. Each reaction
can be configured individually upon each keyword. Reaction can be an email delivery.
The memory buffer for port logging data are pre-allocated at the size as follows:
Port Number of IP serial console
16

Memory Size (Bytes / Port)
192K
64K
Total Memory Size
3M
3M
Remark :
■
If the logging data grows larger than the pre-allocated size, the new data will overwrite the old data.
2.11 Connection
The IP serial console web pages provide a web-based serial port connection which enables the user to access the
serial ports without using the Telnet client program.
A Java applet is used to provide the text-based user interface to access the serial port. This Java applet supports
only Telnet in Console Server mode. The user cannot access the serial port via the web when the host mode of the
port is set to Raw TCP connection. The user is asked to enter user ID and password to access the port. Once
authenticated, the user now has access to the serial port.
Notes: In order to run this function, the system need support J2RE (Java 2 Runtime Environment) 1.5 and above,
or Sun TM JRE(Java Runtime Environment) 5.0 and above. You can get the Java Software from the website
http://www.java.com/en/download/

2.12 Serial-to-Serial Function
2.12.1
Serial-to-Serial Function
Normally the data transfer of IPCS is between Ethernet port and serial ports. With Serial-to-Serial function the data
transfer can be between one designated serial port (ESP) and one of the other serial ports. The designated serial
port, Entry Serial Port (ESP), is connected to a Terminal Converter to provide VGA and keyboard ports locally, or
connect the VGA/keyboard ports to KVM switch to consolidate the administration. The other serial ports are
connected to the devices or servers to be monitored and controlled. There are two types of ESP:
Internal ESP or External ESP.
External ESP:
the last external serial port (e.g., Port #16 if IPCS-16). The data transfer will be between the ESP and one of the
other external serial ports (e.g., Port #1~15 if CS-116)
Internal ESP:
It is located on the main board inside the IPCS unit. We have to uncover the metal case so can access to it. The
data transfer will be between the ESP and one of the other external serial ports (e.g., Port #1~16 if CS-116)
To configure the Serial-to-Serial function
1. Enter VT100 console mode (see the section VT-100 for details) to show up the window screen as below.
2. Go to the item Port position, hit SPACE bar to choose the ESP type (Internal port, or The last port)
3. Confirm the choice then auto-reboot the system
4. After the reboot (about one minute), the screen below will show up. Configure each configuration setting.
Note : that one should type in the value for Inactivity timeout, and press SPACE bar to select the setting for the
other items.

5. Confirm the choice the screen below will show up.
6. Type in user name and password. Then the data channel connection between ESP and the selected serial port
will be built. So the administrator can control the serial device or server.
7. Press Ctrl and C keys to get out of Serial-to-Serial function and back to main console screen.
The web page also gives read-only settings of Serial-to-Serial function, it will auto-changed upon the setting change
on VT100 console. Click Cancel will refresh the values.
2.12.2
Serial Power Control Function
The Serial Power Controller (SPC) is a family of intelligent power distribution units that enables remote power
control of servers and network appliances. When used in conjunction with IP Console Servers, the SPC provides
comprehensive management capabilities and quick problem resolution by integrating console access with power
control into a single interface.
The SPC support both RS232 and RS485 interface. With RS485 mode, the SPC can be located up to 1.2km
away from the controlling master, and has the Daisy- chain capability.
For detailed operation, please refer to the User Manual of Serial Power Controller

This page will be automatically refreshed every 10 seconds, to show the system current time.
2.13.2
System Logging
The user may configure the IP serial console to enable or disable the system logging process and set the storage
location. The system log buffer is pre-allocated at 300K bytes size. If the logging data grows larger than the
pre-allocated size, the new data will overwrite the old data.

2.15 Date and Time
The IPCS maintains current date and time information. The IPCS clock and calendar settings are backed up by internal
battery power. The user can change the current date and time.
There are two methods of date and time settings. The first is to use the NTP server to maintain the date and time settings.
If the NTP feature is enabled, the IPCS will obtain the date and time information from the NTP server at each reboot, then
automatically align with the NTP server time per hour. If the NTP server is set to 0.0.0.0, the IPCS will automatically use the
default NTP servers. In this case, the IPCS should be connected from the network to the Internet. The second method is
to set date and time manually without using the NTP server. This will allow the date and time information to be kept
maintained by the internal battery backup.
By convention, weather scientists use one time zone, Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). This time is also known as
Universal Time (UTC). The user may also need to set the time zone and the time offset from UTC depending on
the user location to set system date and time exactly, and the time offset from UTC. It allows the IPCS to calculate
the exact system time. The Time offset value x could be positive or negative integer. Please refer to the website
http://time_zone.tripod.com/ for the time offset from UTC.
Note :
■
■
■
The IP serial console provides RTC (Real Time Clock) function powered by a lithium battery (CR2032,
3V). So the data/time will be maintained even encounter power loss to the unit.
If you repeatedly loss the date / time information please replace the battery.
Replace the 3-Volt CR2032 battery only with the same or equivalent type recommended by the battery
manufacturer. A new battery can explode if it is incorrectly installed. Discard the inappropriate one if
possible.

2.16 Fireware Upgrade
Firmware can be easily upgraded via web page. This section describes the upgrade procedures.
*The latest firmware version is available on the web site.
2.16.1
Prepare Upgrade Environment
1. Need to obtain a TFTP server software program.
2. Startup tftp server (e.g., tftpd32). The website below kindly provides the software.
http://perso.orange.fr/philippe.jounin/tftpd32_download.html.
3. Run the TFTP server software program, for example: tftpd32.exe
4. Select the directory folder where the upgrade image files reside at
For example: Z:\IP-console\Release\v1.0 & 082306
Note :
There are three possible images can be upgraded. But not all of the three images should be upgraded
in each release. Most often, only need to upgrade the ramdisk image. The three images are:
■
■
■
2.16.2
extpar
zimage
ramdisk
Upgrade from web page
Key in TFTP server IP address and image file name, then click Apply.
After a few seconds, the message Flash program finished successfully will be shown, meaning the new
firmware has been upgraded into the Flash memory.
Warning :
During this upgrading process, we should not disconnect the power or the Ethernet cable, since it
may cause upgrade failure and destroy the image in Flash memory. In this case, we have to upgrade
through bootloader process, which is not as friendly as the web method.
P.30
CS-116
2.16 Fireware Upgrade
2.16.2
Upgrade from web page
If you want to run the new firmware, you need to click the Reboot item, then Yes to confirm to reboot the system. It
will take about one minute to finish the system reboot. When the IPCS unit finishes the startup and working normally,
the Ready green LED will blink every second.
Warning :
A new firmware release version may need one, two, or up to three images to upgrade. You have to upgrade all to be upgraded images before rebooting the system. Otherwise may cause inconsistency between kernel and application firmware and the system may not be able to start up successfully. In this
case, we have to upgrade through bootloader process, which is not as friendly as the web method.

Lan Setup Menu
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This menu allows the terminal setup for Ethernet communication. Use of Ethernet communications provides
the additional ability to open multiple sessions (applications) on one or more hosts/servers at the same time.
Support of these extended features requires the creation of special files at the host computer(s) by the MIX
manager for your system. The settings selected by the MIX at the host(s) must also be entered in this menu
for proper communications.
Note: The Ethernet option in the F4 setup menu must be set to ON for the terminal to work in an Ethernet
environment.
Ethernet
Node ID:
Displays the serial number of the hardware Ethernet interface device. This is a default
value of the manufacturer of the hardware device and should not be changed.
Local IP
Address:
The IP address assigned to this terminal by the MIS manager. Each terminal must have
an unique IP address. The address is used to allow the host to identify messages from
this terminal and to allow the terminal to filter out return messages from the common
Ethernet cable. An example of this address is 192.168.123.211.
Netmask:
The value generated by the system based on the IP address. The system administrator
would have this information. An example is 255.255.255.0
Remote IP
0...B Address:
For any remote host, or devices, that the terminal will communicate with for a specific
session. These twelve remote IP addresses should all be identical if all communications
will be with only one host. If Multisession ON in the F4 menu has been selected, and
here is more than one host on your system, you must specify which host each session
will communicate with. To communicate with a different host for a future session, these
settings should be changed.
Note:
The Multisession option allows 4 separate sessions if any emulation other than
ECON-80 is selected. If ECON-80 emulation is selected, the Multisession option
allows 7 separate sessions.
Gateway:
This IP address is used to communicate with other networks. If a gateway is not being
used this option should be blank.
Term Type:
Allows definition of the terminal with up to 40 characters. If Term Type is empty the
default type is sent to the host by the system

Wyse -
Same as native code (Wyse enhancement- code not native to other terminal)
ENH -
Same as native code when enhance mode is on
(Wyse enhancement - code not native to other terminal)
A code listed under a nonnative personality indicates that the related terminal’s native code is supported.
A blank in any column indicates that the command is not supported.
Variables are shown in italics. Their values are listed in alphabetical order at the end of the table.

Commands Supported in ASCII Personalities
Below table lists all the ASCII commands recognized by the terminal. The native mode code for the command is given in the second column. (The native mode include WY-325,WY-120 and WY-60.) The remaining
columns show the support for the command in other ASCII personalities according to the following notations:
Same -
Same as native code (code is native to other terminal also)
Wyse -
Same as native code (Wyse enhancement- code not native to other terminal)
ENH -
Same as native code when enhance mode is on
(Wyse enhancement - code not native to other terminal)
A code listed under a nonnative personality indicates that the related terminal’s native code is supported.
A blank in any column indicates that the command is not supported.
Variables are shown in italics. Their values are listed in alphabetical order at the end of the table.

3.15 Using the Printer Server in Ethernet Terminal
NCP-1701
1. Introduction
There are two ways to send the print jobs to Ethernet Terminal for printing: 1) through LPD protocol, and 2)
through TFTP protocol. The first method is more suitable for printing environments with a large number of user.
The reason for this is since the LPD protocols has a queue process so that the print jobs will be kept in the print
queues in the host. But TFTP does not implement the print queue concept; if printer port is not ready for accepting new print jobs, TFTP will be terminated. Consequently, the user must send the print job again. Thus the TFTP
protocol is suitable for printing small jobs, in a small number of users environment, or for testing purposes.
LPD is a built-in printing protocol in the BSD type of UNIX. However, it is also available in most UNIX system. With
LPD, users do not need to install additional software to the host to print the jobs. Most implementations of the
LPD protocol sends out the data file before the control file. However, since Ethernet Terminal must print the data
file immediately upon receiving it, then the print option specified in the control file cannot take affect.
To install the printer server function of Ethernet Terminal, the first step is Basic setup. Whichever printing protocol
you use, you need to run basic setup first. If you plan to use LPD to print your jobs, you need to go through the
Setup for LPD procedures. If you plan to use TFTP to print your jobs, you need to go through the Setup for TFTP
procedures.
2. Basic Setup
Because the TCP/IP world uses IP addressing to communicate with each other, the purpose of Basic Setup is to
assign an IP address to the Ethernet Terminal.
For the purpose of these explanation, assume the following:
(1) Login to the UNIX host as root
(2) Your Ethernet terminal is on the same network segment that the host resides.
Step 1. Add the Print Server to /etc/hosts
Create a new entry in the /etc/hosts file on all UNIX hosts that are slated to work with
Ethernet Terminal.
To create a new entry, add the following line:
IP_Address PS_NAME # comment
where:
IP_Address is an IP address.
PS_NAME is a host name of a print server.
The statement after # is the comment for the new entry.
e.g. 192.168.0.2 ETPS1 # Ethernet Terminal
This example assigns the name ETPS1 to the Ethernet Terminal with IP address
192.168.0.2.
NOTE:
The IP address is defined in setup Screen of Console Terminal as a local
IP address. You can change it by yourself.
Step 2. Check to see if above steps are completed
You can check if the IP address of print Server function is installed successfully by
issuing the following ping command:
ping PS_NAME [Enter]
e.g. ping ETPS1 [Enter]
P.70

NCP-1701
3. Setup for LPD
Follow those steps from step 1 to step 2 described in Basic Setup. The following steps are dependent on the
operating system. Please refer to the UNIX administration guide. The following illustrated steps are under BSD
system.
Step 3.
Create a spooling directory
Use mkdir command to create a directory for spooling.
e.g. mkdir/usr/spool/ETPS1
Step 4.
Make the directory be available to LPD main process
Basically, the method has the following three procedures:
1) Assign the spooling daemon as the owner of this directory.
2) Allow the spooling daemon to be able to read from or write to the directory.
3) Enable the group of LPD main processes to be able to read from or write to the
directory.
e.g. If it works on a BSD UNIX host and makes the directory /usr/ spool/ETPS1
(created in step 3) available, then follow these three procedures:
chown daemon /usr/spool/ETPS1
chmod 775 /usr/spool/ETPS1
chgrp daemon /usr/spool/ETPS1
Step 5.
Add a remote printer
To add a remote printer, insert a block similar to the following in the /etc/printcap file.
Printer_name|Remote Printer on Ethernet Terminal:\
:lp=:\
:rm=PS_NAME:\
:rp=Logic_Printer_name:\
:sd=<full path of spooler directory name>:\
:mx#0:
e.g. If Ethernet Terminal works on a BSD UNIX host, then insert the following block
into /etc/printcap file.
ETPS1|Remote Printer on Ethernet Terminal:\
:lp=:\
:rm=ETPS1:\
:rp=L1:\
:sd=/usr/spool/ETPS1:\
:mx#0:
Step 6.
Start host’s print mechanism for BSD version UNIX system
Typing: lpc start printer_name [Enter]
e.g. lpc start ETPS1 [Enter]
Now your Ethernet Terminal is configured to accept LPD printing.
P.71
3.15 Using the Printer Server in Ethernet Terminal
NCP-1701
4. LPD Printing
Before you use LPD for printing, your Ethernet Terminal needs to be installed completely with Setup for LPD
in 3 setup for LPD. LPD protocol is built-in to most of the UNIX system. However, detailed implementation of
LPD differs among UNIX system. Please refer to your UNIX administration guide for reference. The following
illustrated printing command is under BSD system or System V version.
For BSD system: lpr -P <printer_name><filename>
For System V version: lp -d <printer_name><filename>
This command is to print selected file to the selected printer.
e.g.
lpr -PETPS1 /etc/hosts (BSD version) or lp -dETPS1 /etc/hosts (System V version)
This example is to print the /etc/hosts file to the Ethernet Terminal printer.
5. Setup for TFTP
If you are working on the BSD UNIX system, please run the setup procedure as 3 setup for LPD. Otherwise
run the setup procedure as LPD except step 6.
6. TFTP Printing
Before you use TFTP printing, your Ethernet Terminal needs to be installed completely by Basic Setup for
TFTP in 5. TFTP Printing lets you send print jobs to the printers directory. There are no spooling mechanisms involved. Consequently, in case that printer is not ready, the TFTP process will be terminated immediately without sending print jobs to printers. The user need to make sure the printer is ready to print then issue
TFTP command to have a successful result.
Firstly, you should log into the Ethernet Terminal with this command:
tftp <PS_NAME>
And then type:
put <file Name> Ln
Where Ln is a logic printer for L1 to L8
e.g.
tftp ETPS1
tftp > put /etc/hosts L1
This example prints the /etc/hosts file to the logic printer 1 of Ethernet Terminal Printer ETPS1.

(1) Hold down the Alt and then depress the Esc key to enter setup mode.
(2) Press F1 for display setup menu, select the Display by arrow key.
(3) Press Spacebar to change Display = LCD
(4) Then press F12 to exit, and press Spacebar save the setting.
Remark : Scroll lock must be off for accessing setup menu by “Alt + Esc” key
For NCP-1701
1. Can I connect the NCP-1701 to single SUN server using an Ethernet telnet connection?
Yes, you can establish an Ethernet telnet connection by applying a crossover Ethernet cable in between Ethernet RSC console port of SUN server and Ethernet port of NCP-1701. Alternatively, an Ethernet switch and
standard RJ45 cat 5 Ethernet cables may be used. When using an Ethernet switch, it is advisable that this
network remains private for security reason.
2. How do I connect the NCP-1701 to multiple servers using a RS232 serial connection?
A multi-port IP serial console (CS-116 / CS-148) or multi-port console server must be used to connect the serial
console to multiple servers.
3. How do I connect the NCP-1701 to multiple servers using an Ethernet telnet connection?
An Ethernet switch must be used to connect the NCP-1701 to multiple servers. Standard RJ45 Cat5 Ethernet
cables should be used to connect the switch to the NCP-1701 and servers.
In use, the operator can switch the terminal connection between [up to] 12 servers by using the hot key sequence ALT-F1 through to ALT-F12. The state of each server session is preserved by the console NCP-1701.
4. How many servers are supported by the Ethernet telnet connection?
The serial console allows up to 12 Ethernet connected servers to be configured.
P.82
5.1 FAQ
5. Does the serial console require an IP address when using an Ethernet connection?
Yes. The IP address is pre-defined during console terminal set up.
6. Is any configuration required for SUN server?
When the NCP-1701 looses power or is powered off, a ‘break’ may be generated on the RS-232 host communications port (as is common with most general purpose terminals). To prevent this halting a Sun server,
ensure that the “alternate break” sequence is configured.
When connecting the NCP-1701 to IP serial console (CS-116 / CS-148) or console server, an alternate break
sequence may not be required, since some IP serial consoles or console servers are “Break Safe”. When using an Ethernet console connection, the alternate break sequence need not be defined. However, the RSC
Ethernet port must be configured using the “rscconfig” command.
7. Does the keyboard support any Sun specific keys?
No, character terminals are non Sun specific, and do not require any special keys.
8. What character resolutions does the serial console support?
The standard resolution is 80x24 plus a status line displayed using 800x600 pixels.
