To make the network connection, connect one end of an
RJ-45 (UTP) cable to the 10 BASE-T connector on the back
of the ProxyServer as shown in Figure 3. Connect the other
end of the cable to your LAN.
4
Connect one end of an RJ-45 cable to the ISDN
connector on the back of the unit and connect the other
end to the ISDN Telephone Network (Telco wall jack) as
shown in Figure 3.
5
If desired, connect an analog phone set to the PHONE
jack on the back panel of the ProxyServer.
6
Turn on power to the ProxyServer by setting the ON/OFF
switch on the back panel to the ON position. Wait for the
red Fail LED on the ProxyServer to go OFF before
proceeding. This may take up to two minutes to go
OFF.
At this time your ProxyServer is completely cabled and
powered on. Proceed to the next section to load your ProxyServer software.

ISDN ProxyServer Quick Start Guide
Before You Start Loading your Software
Consider the following choices before you configure your ProxyServer and record your selections on the following pages; then
refer to them while loading your software.
Network Configuration
ü Network Switch Type_______________________________
Select the network switch type your ISDN service provider uses
at its local central office. You can set the ProxyServer to NET3
(EuroISDN) or 1TR6 (German), AT&T 5ESS, DMS-100, or NI-1.
If you do not know the switch type, you can get the information
from your ISDN service provider.
ü Data TEI__________________________________________
The Data TEI is the TEI that is assigned to the data channel.
You can select “Auto TEI,” a fixed TEI (from 0 to 63), or “Disabled.” A TEI (terminal endpoint identifier) is a number used by
the central office switch to uniquely identify each device that is
connected to the network. When it uses dynamic TEI assignments (Auto TEI), the central office switch assigns a TEI each time
the ProxyServer connects to the network. However, the ISDN
service provider may assign a fixed TEI at subscription time, in
which case you must configure the ProxyServer with the fixed TEI
number. You can also disable the channel, which may be useful
when multiple ProxyServers are attached to a network terminator bus.
ü Voice TEI_________________________________________
The Voice TEI is the TEI assigned to the voice channel. You
have the same choices as for the Voice TEI: “Auto TEI,” a fixed
TEI number (from 0 to 63), or “Disabled.”
US Parameters:
ü Data SPID________________________________________
The ProxyServer must be configured with the Service Profile
Identifier (SPID). The data SPID is assigned by the local phone
company and is for the specific BRI line to which the ProxyServer will be attached. The data SPID string can have up to 20
characters.
10
Software
Note: For DMS-100 switches, any ASCII character except the
underline (_) character is valid. For NI-1 and AT&T switches,
only the digits 0-9 are valid.
ü Voice SPID________________________________________
The voice SPID is assigned by the local phone company and is
for the specific BRI line to which the ProxyServer will be attached. The voice SPID string can have up to 20 characters.
Note: For DMS-100 switches, any ASCII character except the
underline (_) character is valid. For NI-1 and AT&T switches,
only the digits 0-9 are valid.
ü Data Directory Number______________________________
The data Directory Number (DN) is a telephone number that is
assigned to the ProxyServer at subscription time by the ISDN
service provider. The DN is a string of up to 24 characters; valid
characters are 0-9, the * character, and the # character.
ü Voice Directory Number______________________________
The voice Directory Number (DN) is a telephone number that is
assigned to the ProxyServer at subscription time by the ISDN
service provider. The DN is a string of up to 24 characters; valid
characters are 0-9, the * character, and the # character.
Europe Parameters:
ü Data ISDN________________________________________
The ProxyServer must be configured with the (ISDN). The data
ISDN is assigned by the local phone company and is for the
specific BRI line to which the ProxyServer will be attached. The
data ISDN string can have up to 20 characters.
Note: For DMS-100 switches, any ASCII character except the
underline (_) character is valid. For NI-1 and AT&T switches,
only the digits 0-9 are valid.
ü Voice ISDN________________________________________
The voice ISDN is assigned by the local phone company and is
for the specific BRI line to which the ProxyServer will be attached. The voice ISDN string can have up to 20 characters.

underline (_) character is valid. For NI-1 and AT&T switches,
only the digits 0-9 are valid.
ü Data Sub Address______________________________
The data Sub Address is a phone number that is assigned to
the ProxyServer at subscription time by the ISDN service provider. The DN is a string of up to 24 characters; valid characters
are 0-9, the * character, and the # character.
ü Voice Sub Address______________________________
The voice Sub Address is a phone number that is assigned to
the ProxyServer at subscription time by the ISDN service provider. The DN is a string of up to 24 characters; valid characters
are 0-9, the * character, and the # character.
Data Control
ü Data Protocol_____________________________________
The data protocol, also known as the B-channel protocol and
the rate adaption protocol, is the “language” that is spoken over
each 64K bps channel between two ISDN devices. The devices
on both ends of the ISDN link must use identical data protocols.
MLPPP Protocol
The MLPPP (Multi-Link PPP) protocol provides rates up to 64K
bps per channel. This protocol uses both B channels at once,
providing an aggregate data transmission speed of 128K bps.

Software
Loading Your ProxyServer Software
The ProxyServer Install Software and User Guide are provided on
the ProxyServer CD-ROM. The CD-ROM is auto-detectable and
should start automatically when inserted into your CD-ROM drive.
After you have configured your ProxyServer, you can install the
User Guide on your hard drive (for later viewing or printing) by
clicking the Install Manuals icon on the Installation CD screen and
selecting MTPSR1-202ST.
1. Before inserting the ProxyServer CD-ROM into your
CD-ROM drive, determine whether you will configure
your ProxyServer over the LAN or directly from a COM
port of a local PC. For configuring over a network, your
PC must first be configured for network communications (i.e., TCP/IP stack must be installed) and both the
PC and the ProxyServer must be on the same physical
LAN segment. If you need to load the TCP/IP stack,
refer to the Windows Client Setup chapter in the
ProxyServer User Guide.
2. Insert the ProxyServer CD-ROM into the CD-ROM
drive on your local PC. The CD-ROM should start
automatically; however, it may take 10 to 20 seconds
for the Multi-Tech Installation CD screen to appear.
13

(automatically) client IP addresses. If you choose to enable the
built-in DHCP server, you are given the option of also enabling the
Domain Name Server.
11. Follow the on-screen instructions to configure the IP
Ports, DHCP Server, and Domain Name Server.
12. Click the WAN option in the Select Port window and
