Introduction
Overview
The SN0108 / SN0116 Serial over the NET™ series are control units that
provide both In-Band and Out-of-Band remote serial access to up to 8
(SN0108) or 16 (SN0116) servers or other serial IT devices (hubs, routers,
power management devices, etc.), via a Telnet or SSH TCP/IP connection.
Up to 8 (SN0108) or 16 (SN0116) Users can log in at the same time from any
computer connected to the Internet, whether down the hall, or half way around
the world. Each is able to control a separate port so that eight attached devices
can be accessed at the same time.

Property Settings
To set up the serial communications parameters for a port, select it, then click
the Property Settings button at the bottom of the page:
The meanings of the settings are given in the following table:
Setting
Meaning
Port ID
Each port on the SN0108 / SN0116 has a port ID number (COM1 COM8 for the SN0108, or COM1 - COM16 for the SN0116). The Port
ID field displays the number of the port that is being configured.
Port Name
You can give a port an appropriate name by editing the Port Name
field.
Baud Rate
This sets the port’s data transfer speed. Choices are from 300 –
115200 (drop down the list to see them all). Set this to match the
baud rate setting of the connected device. Default is 9600 (which is a
basic setting for many serial devices).
Data Bits
This sets the number of bits used to transmit one character of data.
Choices are: 5, 6, 7 and 8. Set this to match the data bit setting of the
connected device. Default is 8 (which is the default for the majority of
serial devices).
(Continues on next page.)

sn816.book Page 33 Thursday, December 13, 2007 5:16 PM
Chapter 4. Administration
(Continued from previous page.)
Setting
Meaning
Parity
This bit checks the integrity of the transmitted data. Choices are:
Even, Odd, None, Mark, and Space. Set this to match the parity
setting of the connected device. Default is None (which is the default
for the majority of serial devices).
Stop Bits
This indicates that a character has been transmitted. Set this to
match the stop bit setting of the connected device. Choices are: 1,
1.5, and 2. Default is 1 (which is the default for the majority of serial
devices).
Flow Control
This allows you to choose how the data flow will be controlled.
Choices are: None, Hardware (RTS/CTS), and XON/XOFF. Set this
to match the flow control setting of the connected device. Default is
None.
Enable Toggle
DTR
Enabling this parameter allows the DTR signal to toggle between
disabled and enabled when the port is occupied. Choices are: No,
and Yes. Default is No.
Note: For some devices, in order for Enabled to work correctly, you
must first disable DTR (select No, then click Update), then Enable it
(select Yes, then click Update).
Online Detect
This allows you to set the DSR signal to detect online status or not.
Choices are: None and DSR. Default is DSR.
Out CRLF
Translation
This allows you to select whether to send a Carriage Return and Line
Feed signal (CRLF), or only a Carriage Return signal (CR). Choices
are: None (which sends CRLF) and CRLF to CR (which only sends
CR), Default is None.
Note: If your device outputs double spaced lines, it means that a line
feed is automatically added to a carriage return signal. In that case,
choose CRLF to CR.
Suspend
Character
The Suspend character is used to bring up the Suspend Menu in
Telnet sessions (seeTelnet, page 47).
Note: Valid characters are from A—Z, except H, I, J, and M. Those
four characters may not be used.

SN0108 / SN0116 User Manual
(Continued from previous page.)
Setting
Operating Mode
Meaning
The choices are:
Console Management: In this mode, users establish a Telnet or
SSH session under the SN0108 / SN0116 to manage a server
or serial device connected to the port. Users can log in using
the browser Telnet function, a direct Telnet session, SSH or
PuTTY. This mode can also be used for Out-of-Band
operation via the SN0108 / SN0116’s Console Port. See Out
of Band Operation, Chapter 6.
Raw TCP Mode: This mode is used with socket programming to
directly control the device’s data transmission without the
need for serial port control or serial modem signal control.
Only data is transmitted (using IP as the protocol).
Note: When you use the IP address you must also specify the
port number. For example:
192.168.0.200 5003.
For security purposes, access to the port can be limited to
specific IP addresses. See Direct Access, page 39, for further
details.
Real COM Port: Used with a virtual COM port driver on the local
machine (See Real COM Port Management, Chapter 7 for
virtual port management details.) The device connected to this
port appears as if it were a device directly connected to a
COM port on the local computer. Data transmission between
the device and the local computer takes place over the virtual
COM port to the SN0108 / SN0116.
This mode is useful with serial devices such POS terminals,
Bar Code Readers, Serial printers, etc. In addition, this mode
can be used with other Altusen management products, such
as the PN9108 Power Over the NET™.
As with Raw TCP Mode, access to the port can be limited to
specific IP addresses with the Direct Access function (see
page 39).
Timeout
If there is no input on this port for the amount of time set here, the
port is released for use by another user.
Note: This field does not appear if the port is selected as a
Console port. (See OOBC, page 28, for selection details.)
Authorized
Operators
The Authorized Operators field indicates the users that are
authorized to operate the port (seeUser Manager, page 36). The
information in this field is for viewing purposes only. It can't be
changed on this page.
Š When you have finished making your choices, click Update to save them.
Š To abandon your choices without saving them, simply leave the page.

Out of Band Operation
Overview
In case the network goes down, or the SN0108 / SN0116 cannot be accessed
with the usual browser based method for some other reason, the SN0108 /
SN0116 can be reached via several additional Out of Band (OOB) methods.
These include HyperTerminal, PPP, Telnet, and SSH. Each of these is
described in the sections that follow.
HyperTerminal
HyperTerminal is a program included with Windows. It can be used to
establish either a direct terminal connection, or an indirect (phone in) terminal
connection. Both configurations are discussed below.
Direct HyperTerminal Connection
Setup:
To set up a direct HyperTerminal connection, do the following:
1. Use Ethernet cable and a DTE-to-DTE adapter to connect one of the
SN0108 / SN0116's serial ports to a COM port on a PC (see the
Installation section, pages 13 and 14).
Note: 1. See RJ-45 to Serial Adapters, page 92, for details on choosing the
appropriate adapter. The usual choice for connecting to a PC is
SA0141.
2. In the examples that follow we use COM1. If you use a different
COM port, change the settings accordingly.
3. Be sure that the port you specify as the Console Port in the OOBC
dialog box (seeOOBC, page 28) matches the port that you are
connecting the PC to. Change the setting, if necessary.

Linux Installation
Preparation
Before installing the driver file, make sure that the target you want to map is
on the network; that the port on the target you want to map is in Real COM Port
mode; and that your Linux IP address has been specified in the SN0108 /
SN0116's Direct Access dialog box (see Direct Access, page 39).
Installing the Driver
To install the driver file, first become root, and do the following:
1. Create a temporary directory in your system. For example, to create a temp
directory under root, at the # prompt use the following command:
mkdir /root/temp
Note: Under Linux, all input is case sensitive
2. On the software CD that came with your SN0108 / SN0116 package,
locate the file AtenVPInstall_vxxx.tgz (or download it from our website),
and copy it into the temp directory you just created.
Note: The vxxx specified above stands for the driver’s version number. The
file on the CD will show an actual version number.
3. At the # prompt, uncompress AtenVPInstall_vxxx.tgz with the following
command:
tar xvfz AtenVPInstall_vxxx.tgz
4. After AtenVPInstall_vxxx.tgz has been uncompressed, at the # prompt
issue the following command:
./AtenVPInstall.sh
5. Follow the on-screen instructions to install the driver.
Uninstalling the Driver
To uninstall the virtual port driver, as well as the daemon and device files, first
become root, and run:
/usr/lib/AtenVPort/AtenVPUnInstall.sh
This kills the daemon, and unloads the driver module from the kernel. It
modifies the rc file to eliminate self-starting of the daemon and auto-loading of
the module, and removes virtual port device files(/dev/ttyaxxx).

Target List
The left side panel displays all the devices that were found with the
Enumeration function, as well as any devices that were manually added with
the Target Information fields.
Note: Double clicking an item in the list invokes the same function as
selecting Enum Ports–which displays the numbers and working modes
of the selected target’s ports in the Port List column.
Š If a device was automatically listed as a result of the Enumeration
procedure, the icon to its left is drawn with green dots and lines to show
that the target is on line and is ready to be mapped.
Š If a device was added to the list manually and is off line, the icon to its left
is drawn with black dots and lines. Double clicking a manually added item
can get some information and display it in the Port List, but the working
mode information is not accurate and we must assume that all the device’s
ports are in Virtual Port mode. See Operating Mode, page 34 for details
about port modes.
Š If the target is off line or is on line but does not respond within 2 seconds
of asking to enumerate its ports, the working mode information is not
accurate and we must assume that all the device’s ports are in Virtual Port
mode. See Operating Mode, page 34 for details about port modes.

Administrator Login Failure
If you are unable to perform an Administrator login (because the Username and
Password information has become corrupted, or you have forgotten it, for
example), you can clear the login information with the following procedure:
1. Power off the SN0108 / SN0116 and remove its housing.
2. Short the jumper labeled J6.
3. Power on the switch.
4. When the Link and 10/100Mbps LEDs flash, power off the switch.
5. Remove the jumper cap from J6.
6. Close the housing and start the SN0108 / SN0116 back up.
After you start back up, you can use the default Username and Password
(see Logging In, page 19) to log in.

IP Address Determination
If you are an administrator logging in for the first time, you need to access the
SN0108 / SN0116 in order to give it an IP address that users can connect to.
There are three methods to choose from. In each case, your computer must be
on the same network segment as the SN0108 / SN0116.After you have
connected and logged in you can give the SN0108 / SN0116 its fixed network
address. SeeNetwork, page 23 for details.
Method 1:
For computers running Windows, an IP address can be assigned with the IP
Installer utility:
1. Unzip the contents of IPInstaller.zip (found on the Software CD that came
with your SN0108 / SN0116 package) to a directory on your hard drive.
2. Go to the directory that you unzipped the IPInstaller program to and run
IPInstaller.exe. A dialog box similar to the one below appears
:
3. Select the SN0108 / SN0116 in the Device List.
Note: 1. If the list is empty, or your device doesn't appear, click
Enumerate to refresh the Device List.
2. If there is more than one device in the list, use the MAC address
to pick the one you want. The SN0108 / SN0116's MAC address
is located on its bottom panel.

4. Select either Obtain an IP address automatically (DHCP), or Specify an
IP address. If you chose the latter, fill the IP Address, Subnet Mask, and
Gateway fields with the information appropriate to your network.
5. Click Set IP.
6. After the IP address shows up in the Device List, click Exit to end the
program.
Method 2:
1. Set your computer's IP address to 192.168.0.XXX
Where XXX represents any number or numbers except 10. (192.168.0.10 is
the default address of the SN0108 / SN0116.)
2. Specify the switch's default IP address (192.168.0.10) in your browser, and
you will be able to connect.
3. Assign a fixed IP address for the SN0108 / SN0116 that is suitable for the
network segment that it resides on.
4. After you log out, be sure to reset your computer's IP address to its original
value.
Method 3:
A fixed IP address can also be assigned with the ARP command as follows:
1. Turn off the power to the SN0108 / SN0116.
2. Enter the following command:
arp -s <ip address> <SN0108 / SN0116's MAC address>
Where the IP address that you assign is one suitable for the network
segment that the SN0108 / SN0116 resides on.
Note: The SN0108 / SN0116's MAC address can be found on its bottom
panel.
3. Turn the power to the SN0108 / SN0116 back on.

4. In your browser, go to the IP address you just assigned and log in with
your Username and Password.
Note: You must log in within 30 seconds after entering the arp command.
Therefore, it would be advisable to have your browser all set up to
go to the IP address beforehand.
5. Once you have logged in, go to Network, to set up the permanent IP
environment (see page 23).
