General Description
The iBoot is a network attached, IP addressed, Web Controlled
AC power switch. Anyone with a web browser can access iBoot
to perform power On, Off or Reboot (timed power shutdown).
iBoot is password protected for security.
iBoot uses international standard IEC320 Connections and is
selectable from 115VAC or 230VAC. iBoot handles circuits up to
12 Amps (10 Amps at 230VAC).
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.

iBoot Configuration
Setting I/P Address
Consult your Network Administrator to determine the appropriate
IP address. The IP address can be set in any of four ways:
1.
2.
3.
4.
Automatically from a DHCP Server
Web Browser via the Set-up Page
ibootrst.exe Program from Dataprobe
ARP / Ping
iBoot comes with factory installed IP address 192.168.1.254.
and ready to accept a new IP address from a DHCP Server. If
you network has a DHCP server, it will automatically assign an
IP address to iBoot the first time it is connected and powered up.
1. 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. If
you power up iBoot without a fixed (static) IP address, the DHCP
server will be able to assign an IP address. This is the factory
default setting for iBoot. Once an IP address is assigned, you
must check the DHCP server to see what address is assigned to
iBoot.
If you set the IP address using another method, the address
becomes static. To return iBoot to dynamic addressing using
DHCP, change the IP address, using the web browser to 0.0.0.0
2. Setting the IP address using Web Browser
To set the IP address using a Web Browser, connect the
10/100Base-T connection to your local ethernet network and
apply power to iBoot.
Open your browser and access iBoot by entering the default
(192.168.1.254) or current IP address into your browser's
Address window. Enter the password (the factory default is
PASS). Click on Setup and follow the instructions on Page 14.
iBoot Ver 1.5
Page 10
3. Setting the IP address using the ibootrst.exe
Dataprobe provides an iBoot Reset Program; ibootrst.exe to
easily reset the IP address, as well as set the factory defaults in
the event the security code is lost. Obtain ibootrst.exe from
Dataprobe’s web site. You can either download ibootrst.exe or
iboot.exe, which provides an iBoot control program as well.
For ibootrst.exe:
http://www.dataprobe.com/files/power/ibootrst.exe
For iboot.exe:
http://www.dataprobe.com/files/power/iboot.exe
To use ibootrst.exe, the computer running the program must be
on the same subnet and network segment as the iBoot is to be
programmed to. Same subnet can be directly connected or
connected through Ethernet hubs. (NOT routers or switches)
To use ibootrst.exe
Enter the MAC address found on the
underside of the iBoot and the desired
IP address. Click on the Set IP
Address bar. ibootrst.exe will confirm
the proper setting of the address. If
you receive an error message, check
the MAC and IP addresses.
Click the
button for information about the utility program.
iBoot Ver 1.5
Page 11
4. Setting the IP address using ARP / Ping
To set the IP address using ARP, connect the ethernet
connection to your network and apply power to iBoot. Using ARP
you use a computer to set the IP address. The IP address
assigned to iBoot must be use the same network segment as the
computer assigning the address. ARP does not work across
routed or switched networks.
To set the IP address using ARP, the hardware (MAC) address
must be known. This address is located on the bottom of the
unit. The syntax for the MAC address is: nn-nn-nn-nn-nn-nn
Windows (98 and Later)
1.
2.
Open a DOS window.
Type the following command:
arp -s <IP Address> <MAC Address>
Where <IP Address> is the desired IP address (in dotted
decimal) for the iBoot and the <MAC address> is the MAC
Address of the iBoot. The MAC Address of the iBoot is
located on bottom of the unit.
Example: arp -s 63.211.86.165 00-50-c2-05-01-c1 <enter>
|- new IP addr. --| |----- MAC addr. ----|
3.
4.
5.
Ping the iBoot to program the IP address into the iBoot.
Type: ping <IP Address>
If the ping command returns “host not responding” 4 times
then the address has not been programmed properly, or the
IP or MAC Address is incorrect. In either case redo step 2.
If the problem persists, contact the Dataprobe Tech Support
Hot Line.
Delete the entry from the ARP cache by typing:
arp -d <IP Address>
Ping the iBoot to confirm that it has been programmed.
If the iBoot fails to respond, repeat steps 2-4 above. If the
problem persists contact the Dataprobe support hotline.
Unix, Linux, MAC and others
Consult your systems administrator for information on setting an
IP Address. The unit should be pinged after the IP Address has
been set to confirm proper operation.
iBoot Ver 1.5

Web Browser Operation
Password Protection
iBoot uses two passwords, one for normal use and one that also
provides access to the setup functions. From the factory, both
passwords are the same. (PASS)
Open your browser and enter the IP address of iBoot into the
address bar. If your have changed the IP address by any of the
methods listed above, enter that address, otherwise, use the
default IP address 192.168.1.254
Enter the default password PASS, or your password if it has
been changed. A Username is not required. When the proper
password is received the Control and Status Page is displayed.
Control and Status Page
Once the password is entered, the following page is displayed.
(Only one person can be connected to the iBoot at a time.)

cycle, click on either Power On or Power Off buttons. iBoot will
assume the status selected.
Use the Refresh link to obtain the latest status of iBoot. Using
your browser's refresh button can lead to inadvertent power
switching.
If the Auto-Ping Feature is in
use then the page will also
display the current status, OK
or Triggered, with a counter of
how many times the Auto-Ping was triggered. If connecting with
the Setup Password, a reset button for the counter is provided.
When you are finished
with iBoot, click on
Logout. A confirmation
page will be displayed. If
you close your browser
window without first
clicking Logout, there will
be a two minute delay
before you can reaccess iBoot.
iBoot uses an inactivity timer for security. When there is no
activity for 2 minutes, the user is logged out and the password
will need to be entered again for access. This is to prevent
accidental lockout by leaving the user logged in.
The Auto-Ping status will indicate whether this feature is
Enabled, Disabled, or Triggered. It will display Triggered to
indicate that it has not received a response to the ping, and has
performed its programmed function. Once the ping returns, the
status will return to Enabled.
To access the Setup page, the Setup Password must be used
for the initial login. The factory default for the Setup Password,
as well as the operation password is PASS. Both passwords
can be changed in Setup.
