Interfaces
The PT22 has two interfaces: the HTML interface accessed via the HTTP enabled Ethernet connections
and the command line for serial and Telnet connections.
Outlet Naming and Grouping
For commands requiring an outlet name, you may specify it in one of two ways: a predefined absolute
name or a descriptive name assigned by an administrator.
For units with multiple infeed connectors, absolute names are specified by a period (.) followed by the
tower letter, the infeed letter and outlet number.
Example: The absolute name for outlet 8 on the B infeed of tower A is .AB8.
Outlets may also be included in one or more named groups of outlets, enabling you to issue a command
that affects all outlets in a named group.
Usernames and Passwords
The PT22 has one predefined administrative user account (username/password: admn/admn) and supports
a maximum of 128 defined user accounts
NOTE: For security, Server Technology recommends removal of the predefined administrative user account after a new
account with administrative rights has been created.
Only an administrative-level user may perform operations such as creating/removing user accounts and
command privileges, changing passwords and displaying user information. An administrator may also
view the status of all sensors and power inputs.
Usernames may contain from 1-16 characters and are not case sensitive; spaces are not allowed.
Passwords may contain up to 16 characters, and are case sensitive.

Changing the HTTP server port number:
In the HTTP Port field, enter the port number and press Apply.
Setting the HTTP authentication method:
The Sentry HTTP server supports two authentication methods for security and validation of the
username-password – Basic and MD5 digest.
The Basic method utilizes Base64 encoding to encode and deliver the username-password over the
network to the HTTP server for decoding and authentication. This basic method is supported by all
web browsers and offers a minimum level of security.
NOTE: The Base64 algorithm is widely-known and susceptible to packet-sniffer attack for acquisition of the encoded
username-password string.
The MD5 digest method provides stronger protection utilizing one-way encoded hash numbers, never
placing the username-password on the network. Instead, the sending browser creates a challenge code
based on the hash algorithm, provided username-password and unique items such as the device IP
address and timestamp, which is compared against the HTTP server internal user database of valid
challenge codes. The MD5 digest method offers a higher level of security than the Basic method but at
present is not supported by all browsers.
NOTE: MD5 is known to be fully supported by Internet Explorer 5.0+
Select Basic or MD5 from the Authentication drop-down menu and press Apply.

Manager and a remote user. SSL provides two chief features designed to make TCP/IP (Internet)
transmitted data more secure:
•
•
Authentication – The connecting client is assured of the identity of the server.
Encryption – All data transmitted between the client and the server is encrypted rendering any
intercepted data unintelligible to any third party.
SSL uses the public-and-private key encryption system by RSA, which also requires the use of digital
certificates. An SSL Certificate is an electronic file uniquely identifying individuals or websites and
enables encrypted communication; SSL Certificates serve as a kind of digital passport or credential.
The Sentry product’s SSL Certificate enables the client to verify the Sentry’s authenticity and to
communicate with the Sentry securely via an encrypted session, protecting confidential information
from interception and hacking.

SSH
Secure Shell (SSH) version 2 enables secure network terminal sessions between a Sentry Remote
Power Manager and a remote user over insecure network. SSH provides an encrypted terminal sessions
with strong authentication of both the server and client, using public-key cryptography and is typically
used as a replacement for unencrypted Telnet. In addition to enabling secure network terminal sessions
to the Sentry for configuration and power management, the SSH session may be used for secure PassThru connections to attached devices.
SSH requires the configuration and use of a client agent on the client PC. There are many freeware,
shareware or for-purchase SSH clients available. Two examples are the freeware client PuTTY and the
for-purchase client SecureCRT® by VanDyke® Software. For configuration and use of these clients,
please refer to the applicable software documentation.

Status trap
A Status trap is generated when an error condition occurs on a tower, infeeed, Environmental Monitor
or individual sensor. Status traps include the reported Status, the Location of the Sentry and identifier
and name of the affected tower, infeed, outlet, environmental monitor or sensor.
Any error state generates a Status trap and triggers the trap timer. A new trap is generated at the end of
every timer period until the Status returns to a non-error status. All status traps are enabled by default.

LDAP
The Sentry family of products supports Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) Version 3. This
support enables authentication with LDAP servers; user accounts do not need to be individually created
locally on each Sentry device.
This allows administrators to pre-define and configure (in each Sentry product, and in the LDAP
server) a set of necessary LDAP Groups, and access rights for each. User’s access rights can then be
assigned or revoked simply by making the user a member of one-or-more pre-defined Sentry LDAP
Groups. User accounts can be added, deleted, or changed in the LDAP server without any changes
needed on individual Sentry products.
Sentry 5.3b LDAP support has been tested in the following environments:
•
•

Microsoft Active Directory (MSAD)
Novell eDirectory (eDir)

Enabling and Setting up LDAP Support
There are a few configuration requirements for properly enabling and setting up LDAP support. Below
is an overview of the minimum requirements.
Directory Services server configuration requirements:
1.
2.
Define at least one LDAP group.
Assign users to that LDAP group.
Sentry configuration requirements:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
Enable LDAP support.
Define the IP address and domain component of at least one Directory Services server.
Set the LDAP bind request method being utilized by the Directory Services server.
Define the IP address of at least one DNS server.
Test DNS server configuration using Sentry ‘ping’ support.
Define at least one LDAP group and assign access rights for that group.
NOTE: LDAP group names on the Directory Service server and the Sentry must match.
Enabling and disabling LDAP support
The Set LDAP command is used to enable or disable LDAP support.
To enable or disable LDAP support:
At the Sentry: prompt, type set ldap, followed by enabled or disabled and press Enter.
Setting the LDAP host IP address

Example
The following command sets the LDAP server port number to 8888:
Sentry: set ldap port 8888<Enter>
Setting the LDAP bind password type
The Set LDAP Bind command sets the password type used in the bind requests. The Sentry supports
two LDAP bind methods – Simple and MD5.
The Simple method utilizes unencrypted delivery of a username-password over the network to the
Active Directory server for authentication.
The MD5 digest method provides much stronger protection utilizing one-way encoded hash numbers,
never placing the username-password on the network. For more information on MD5, see Setting the
HTTP authentication method: on page 14.
NOTE: Windows 2000 is known only to support Simple binding. Windows 2003 supports both Simple and MD5 binding.
To set the bind password type:
At the Sentry: prompt, type set ldap bind, followed by simple or md5 and press Enter.

Setting the authentication order
The Set Authorder command sets the authentication order for remote authentication sessions. The
Sentry supports two methods for authentication order - Remote -> Local and Remote Only.
The Remote -> Local method first attempts authentication with the Active Directory server and if
unsuccessful with the local user database on the Sentry device.
The Remote Only method attempts authentication only with the Active Directory server and if
unsuccessful, access is denied.
NOTE: With the Remote Only method, if authentication fails due to a communication failure with the Active Directory
server automatic authentication fallback will occur to authenticate with the local user data base on the Sentry device.
To set the authentication order:
At the Sentry: prompt, type set authorder, followed by remotelocal or remoteonly and press Enter.
NOTE: Server Technology recommends NOT setting the authentication order to Remote Only until the LDAP has been
fully configured and tested.

Installation and Operations Manual
TACACS+
The Sentry family of products supports the Terminal Access Controller Access Control System
(TACACS+) protocol. This enables authentication and authorization with a central TACACS+ server;
user accounts do not need to be individually created locally on each Sentry device.
This allows administrators to pre-define and configure (in each Sentry product, and in the TACACS+
server) a set of necessary TACACS+ privilege levels, and users access rights for each. User’s access
rights can then be assigned or revoked simply by making the user a member of one-or-more pre-defined
Sentry TACACS+ privilege levels. User account rights can be added, deleted, or changed within
TACACS+ without any changes needed on individual Sentry products.
The Sentry supports 16 different TACACS+ privilege levels; 15 are entirely configurable by the system
administrator (1 is reserved for default Admin level access to all Sentry resources).

Installation and Operations Manual
Advanced Operations • 63
Setting the TACACS+ encryption key
The Set TACACS Key command sets the encryption key used to encrypt all data packets between the
Sentry and the TACACS+ server. This key must match the key configured on the TACACS+ server.
To set the encryption key:
At the Sentry: prompt, type set tacacs key and press Enter.
At the TACACS+ Key: prompt, type a key of up to 60 alphanumeric and other typeable characters
(ASCII 32 to 126 decimal). Keys are case sensitive. Press Enter. To specify no password, press Enter
at the prompt.
At the Verify TACACS+ Key: prompt, retype the key. Press Enter. To verify no password, press
Enter at the prompt.
Example
Sentry: set tacacs key<Enter>
TACACS+ Key: <Enter>
Verify TACACS+ Key: <Enter>
For security, key characters are not displayed.
NOTE: A key size of zero results in no encryption being applied which may not be supported by the TACACS+ server and
is not recommended for a production environment.
Setting the authentication order
The Set Authorder command sets the authentication order for remote authentication sessions. The
Sentry supports two methods for authentication order - Remote -> Local and Remote Only.
The Remote -> Local method first attempts authentication with the TACACS+ server and if
unsuccessful with the local user database on the Sentry device.
The Remote Only method attempts authentication only with the TACACS+ server and if unsuccessful,
access is denied.
NOTE: With the Remote Only method, if authentication fails due to a communication failure with the TACACS+ server
automatic authentication fallback will occur to authenticate with the local user data base on the Sentry device.
To set the authentication order:
At the Sentry: prompt, type set authorder, followed by remotelocal or remoteonly and press Enter.
NOTE: Server Technology recommends NOT setting the authentication order to Remote Only until the TACACS+ has
been fully configured and tested.

Appendix D: Warranty, Product Registration and Support
Warranty and Limitation of Liability
Server Technology, Inc. agrees to repair or replace Products that fail due to a defect within twelve (12)
months after the shipment date of each Product unit to Buyer (“Warranty Period”). For purposes of this
Agreement the term “defect” shall mean the Product fails to operate or fails to conform to its applicable
specifications. Any claim made pursuant to this Agreement shall be asserted or made in writing only
by Buyer. Buyer shall comply with Server Technology’s Standard Return Merchandise Authorization
(“RMA”) procedure for all warranty claims as set forth in Server Technology’s operation manual.
Buyer must return Products in original packaging and in good condition. This limited warranty
does not include labor, transportation, or other expenses to repair or reinstall warranted Products on site
or at Buyer’s premises.
Server Technology reserves the right to investigate any warranty claims to promptly resolve the
problem or to determine whether such claims are proper. In the event that after repeated efforts Server
Technology is unable to repair or replace a defective Product, then Buyer’s exclusive remedy and
Server Technology’s entire liability in contract, tort, or otherwise shall be the payment by Server
Technology of Buyer’s actual damages after mitigation, but shall not exceed the purchase price actually
paid by Buyer for the defective Product.
Server Technology shall have no responsibility or liability for any Product, or part thereof, that (a) has
had the Serial Number, Model Number, or other identification markings altered, removed or rendered
illegible; (b) has been damaged by or subject to improper installation or operation, misuse, accident,
neglect and/or has been used in any way other than in strict compliance with Server Technology’s
operation and installation manual; (c) has become defective or inoperative due to its integration or
assembly with any equipment or products not supplied by Server Technology; (d) has been repaired,
modified or otherwise altered by anyone other than Server Technology and/or has been subject to the
opening of any sealed cabinet boxes without Server Technology’s prior written consent. If any
warranty claim by Buyer falls within any of the foregoing exceptions, Buyer shall pay Server
Technology its then current rates and charges for such services.
THE ABOVE WARRANTY IS IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR
IMPLIED, INCLUDING THOSE OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
PURPOSE, ALL OF WHICH ARE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMED. SERVER SHALL NOT BE
LIABLE FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, OR EXEMPLARY DAMAGES;
EVEN OF IT HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
For warranty issues, contact the Product Support Department at the number listed above. All repair and
return shipments must be approved by Server and must be accompanied by a RMA (Return
Merchandise Authorization) number and dated proof of purchase.
