Apply DC power to the switch (for DC models)
Read the Safety and Statutory Information booklet before connecting a DC
power supply. A copy of this booklet is included with each switch. It is also
included on the Documentation and Tools CD-ROM, or can be
downloaded from www.alliedtelesis.com/support/software.
Only trained and qualified personnel should connect a DC power supply. Due
to exposed terminals, DC powered switches should be installed only in
Restricted Access Areas.
DC supply cable specifications:
•
Number of wires (cores): 3
•
Minimum size: 2.1mm2 (14 AWG)
•
Minimum cable rating: 600V, 90 degrees Celsius
DC power supply specifications:
•
48 VDC (39-60 VDC is acceptable)
•
Either positive grounded or negative grounded
Circuit protection:
•
Use a 10 Amp circuit breaker
To connect the DC supply:
a) Ensure the supply cable is not live
b) Strip the supply cable wires to expose 8mm (0.31 in.) of bare conductor
c)
At the switch, connect the ground wire to the ground terminal. These
terminals can be identified by the diagram on the switch’s rear panel
(see Figure 2). Tighten the terminal to between 0.6 and 0.8 Nm (0.041 to
0.055 pound-force per foot)
C613-04017-01 REV J

d) At the switch, connect the positive feed to the + (positive) terminal and
the negative feed to the - (negative) terminal. Tighten the terminals to
between 0.6 and 0.8 Nm (0.041 to 0.055 pound-force per foot)
e) Ensure there are no exposed conductor strands
f)
Secure the supply cable (to the rack framework or similar object) so the
connections are isolated from any force applied to the cable
g) Ensure the circuit breaker is in the Off position
h) Connect the supply-cable wires to the circuit breaker
i)
Energise the circuit breaker

The Fault LED should flash for approximately 10 seconds as the switch
runs internal tests. If the LED continues to flash or remains lit, refer to the
Rapier Switch Hardware Reference for troubleshooting information.
8.
Check that the Power LED on the switch’s front panel lights green
If the LED fails to light, refer to the Rapier Switch Hardware Reference for
troubleshooting information.
9.
Connect the Redundant Power Supply (Optional)
AC models of Rapier Switches have a Redundant Power Supply (RPS)
connector on their rear panel (see Figure 1).
The Switch is designed to operate with the AT-RPS8000 RPS, which can be
purchased separately. Contact your authorised Allied Telesis distributer or
reseller for more information.
10. Connect the data cables
Use straight-through or cross-over Ethernet patch cables to connect the
required device(s) to the switch’s ports. Make sure each cable connection is
secure. The switch will now perform basic Layer 2 switching functions. By
default, all switch ports are members of VLAN1.

Rapier Series Switch
Configuring the Switch
Some configuration is necessary if you wish to enable the switch’s advanced
switching capabilities. The switch can be configured by using the Command
Line Interface (CLI) or Graphical User Interface (GUI).
Using the CLI to configure a switch
1.
Connect a terminal or PC to the Terminal Port (ASYN0)
Using the supplied RS-232 DB9 straight-through cable, connect a VT100compatible terminal or the COM port of a PC running a terminal emulation
program such as Windows Terminal, to the RS-232 Terminal Port on the
switch’s front panel.
2.
Set the communication parameters
Set the communication parameters on your terminal or terminal emulation
program to:
3.
•
Baud rate: 9600
•
Data bits: 8
•
Parity: None
•
Stop bits: 1
•
Flow control: Hardware
Log in and set the password
After the switch has booted, the log-in prompt appears. If the log-in
prompt doesn’t appear, press [Enter] two or three times.
When the switch boots for the first time it automatically creates an account
with manager privileges. The account has the log in name “manager” and
the password is “friend”.
At the log in prompt, enter the log in name and password.
Login: manager
Password: friend
The switch’s command prompt appears and you can now configure the
switch using the command line interface.
Change the password as soon as possible. Leaving the manager account with
the default password is a serious security risk. Make sure you remember the
new password as there is no way to retrieve it if it is lost.
Use the following command to change the account password:
set password
The Command Help lists available commands for each protocol, and their
syntax. To display a list of help topics, enter:
help
To display help on a specific topic, enter:
help topic
Alternatively, type a question mark (?) at the end of a partially completed
command to see a list of valid options.

See the Rapier Switch Software Reference for more information on start-up
and configuration procedures (including a list of message definitions).
Using the GUI to configure a switch
This section describes how to access the GUI from a PC via VLAN1, in
order to configure the switch. It assumes that the PC and the switch are in
the same subnet. By default, all switch ports are members of VLAN1.
The GUI requires a PC and web browser. Supported browsers are Internet
Explorer 5.0 and greater, or Netscape 6.2.2 or 6.2.3, with JavaScript enabled.
If you are using a toolbar or plug-in on your browser to block pop-ups,
disable it while using the GUI. The GUI displays detailed configuration
options and information in pop-up windows.
1.
Connect the PC to a switch port.
The PC can be connected directly, or through your LAN.
To connect the PC directly to the switch, use a straight-through Ethernet
cable to connect an Ethernet card on the PC to any one of the switch ports.
Note the PC’s IP address and mask.
Rapier
PC
switch ports
To connect via a LAN, use an Ethernet cable to connect the switch port(s) to
the device(s) on the LAN. Select the LAN PC from which you wish to
configure the switch. The PC should be in the same subnet as the part of
the LAN that contains the switch (for example, the PC could be connected
to a hub or Layer 2 switch that is directly connected to one of the switch’s
ports). Note the PC’s IP address and mask.
