Responsible Party’s name: Hughes Network Systems, Inc.
Address: 11717 Exploration Lane, Germantown, MD 20876
Telephone: 1-866-DIRECWAY (347-3292)
Trade Name: HUGHES, DIRECWAY
Type of Equipment: Two-Way DIRECWAY System
Model Numbers: DW6002 (1032021-0002) DW6000 (1032021-0001)
The Two-Way DIRECWAY System (DW6002 and DW6000) complies with the Canadian
ICES-003, Class B standard.
For DW6002
Standards to which Conformity is declared: FCC Part 68
Part 68 Compliance -- This equipment (Two-Way DIRECWAY System: Model Numbers:
DW6002) complies with Part 68 of the FCC rules and requirements adopted by the ACTA.
On the rear panel of this equipment is a label that contains, among other information, a
product identifier in the format US:5L4DT00B1032021. If requested, this information must
be provided to the Telephone Company.
The Two-Way DIRECWAY system needs to be installed according to the instructions.
Coaxial cables (RX and TX) need to be grounded at the point of entry. A plug and jack
used to connect this equipment to the premises wiring and telephone network must
comply with the applicable FCC Part 68 rules and requirements adopted by the ACTA. A
compliant 26 Gauge telephone cord and modular plug is provided with this product. It is
required to be terminated with a plug type 605 or a FCC plug type 6 position for Australia.
CAUTION: To reduce the risk of fire, use only No. 26 AWG or larger UL Listed or CSA
Certified Telecommunications Line Cord.
The REN is used to determine the number of devices that may be connected to a
telephone line. Excessive RENs on the telephone line may result in the devices not
ringing in response to an incoming call. In most, but not all areas, the sum of RENs should
not exceed five (5.0). To be certain of the number of devices that may be connected to the
line, as determined by the total RENs, contact the local Telephone Company. For products
approved after July 23, 2001, the REN for this product is part of the product identifier that
has the format US:5L4DT##B1032021. The digits represented by the ## are the REN
without the decimal point (e.g., 00 is a REN of 0.0). For earlier products, the REN is
separately shown on the label.
If the Two-Way DIRECWAY System causes harm to the telephone network, the
Telephone Company will notify you in advance that temporary discontinuance of service
may be required. But if advance notice isn’t practical, the Telephone Company will notify
the customer as soon as possible. Also, you will be advised of your right to file a complaint
with the FCC if you believe it is necessary.
The Telephone Company may make changes in its facilities, equipment, operations, or
procedures that could affect the operation of the equipment. If this happens, the
Telephone Company will provide advance notice in order for you to make the necessary
modifications to maintain uninterrupted service.

Satellite Dish Antenna Grounding
The outdoor satellite dish antenna used to receive satellite signals and the cable used to
connect the satellite dish antenna to the indoor receiving unit are required to comply with
local installation codes and the appropriate sections of the National Electric Code (NEC)
and in particular Article 810-15, which covers proper installation and grounding of
television receiving equipment, as well as to Article 820-33, which specifies that the
satellite dish antenna cable ground shall be connected to the grounding system of the
building as close to the point of cable entry as practical. These codes require proper
grounding of the metal structure of the outdoor satellite dish antenna and grounding of the
connecting cable at a point where it enters the house (or other building). If you are having
a professional installer perform the installation, the installer must observe installation
codes. This manual contains instructions on how to make the installation in compliance
with the NEC. If additional local installation codes apply, contact local inspection
authorities.

DW6000 purpose and
components
The DW6000 is designed to provide Internet or corporate intranet
connectivity via satellite through a single DIRECWAY® terminal.
The receive and transmit capability is housed in a single chassis
as shown in Figure 1.
Note: The instructions in this manual apply to the
enterprise-class DW6002 also. The DW6002 includes all DW6000
functionality in addition to being equipped with an internal
modem for DIRECWAY Virtual Automatic Dial Backup
(DVADB).

The DW6000, in combination with an antenna and an Ethernet
hub or wireless base station, provides satellite connectivity for
multiple local area network (LAN) hosts. All the necessary
software resides on the DW6000, which serves as the router.
Because the software is on the DW6000, there is no need for a
computer to run any client software.
The end user or customer must supply and configure all hardware
and software necessary to install and operate a wired (Ethernet)
or wireless LAN.
Figure 2 illustrates the functionality of the DW6000 within a
DIRECWAY network. Note that the DW6000 is independent of
operating platforms. It can also be used with devices other than
computers, such as point-of-sale (POS) terminals or credit
verification devices.
Figure 3 also illustrates the functionality of a DW6000. In this
example, an Ethernet hub is connected to the DW6000 and
supports a local area network (LAN).
Note: Customers who install networks may need a router rather
than a hub, depending on their service plan.

These cable specifications are the minimum required. If the cable
installation does not meet the minimum requirements, future applications may require that the entire cable installation be replaced with
the minimum required cable.
Grounding and cable choice
The choice of grounding scheme may affect the choice of cable. Note that meeting the
National Electrical Code grounding requirements is easier if you use RG-6 with solid copper
center conductor and quad shield. However, you can also meet the requirements by using
RG-6 with solid copper center conductor or copper clad steel conductor only and grounding
the mast as described in the Overview.

Important: A higher grade of cable can be used for an installation where a lower grade is
specified. For example, an RG-6 cable with solid copper center conductor and quad
shield can be used for installations where the cable length is less than 300 ft. Never use a
lower grade of cable than specified. Be sure to record the grade of the cable used for the
installation. The grade is printed on the cable every few feet. Never use a cable which
does not have the manufacturers name and its grade clearly printed on it!

The System Control Center
The DW6000 has an internal Web server that supports the System
Control Center. The System Control Center provides information
about system status, system configuration, and online
documentation. Access it if the DW6000 doesn’t seem to be
functioning properly, to find system information for configuring
networks, or to check system performance.
Note: Each DW6000’s software is updated periodically via
satellite link. Always refer to System Control Center Help and the
latest version of this manual for the latest information about the
System Control Center and DW6000 software.
If at any time you are unable to access the System Control Center,
take the steps below. See Chapter 4 – DW6000 LEDs and
troubleshooting, on page 57 for more information.
• Make sure the DW6000 is powered up. The Power and LAN
LEDs should be lit solid. (The LAN LED may blink if there
is LAN port activity.) If they are not, power cycle the
DW6000 by unplugging the power cord from the wall outlet
or surge protector, waiting 10 seconds, and plugging it back
in.
• If the System Control Center is still not accessible, check the
Ethernet cable connection from the computer to the DW6000.
Check that the power adapter is securely attached to the
receive and DW6000. Also check the computer’s network
configuration.
• If the System Control Center is still not available, try pinging
the unit by entering ping 192.168.0.1 at a DOS
command line. If the ping results show request timed
out power cycle the unit.
• If the ping results show Reply but from... , check the
browser settings. Make sure the browser is not using any
proxy settings.
• If the System Control Center is still not available, contact
installer support.

1
The receiver is in pointing mode
This condition indicates that the installer is performing antenna
pointing. In this mode, the transmitter is disabled for safety
reasons since the installer is working near the dish. If this occurs
during normal operation, try power-cycling the DW6000 by
unplugging the power cord from the wall outlet and then plugging
it back in.
2
The receiver is in factory or NOC mode
This status is for DW6000 testing purposes only. You should never
see it. If this occurs during normal operation, try power-cycling the
DW6000 by unplugging the power cord from the wall outlet and
then plugging it back in.
3
The receiver is not locked to a signal
If the DW6000 had been operating previously, this status is
probably due to inclement weather conditions and will be
corrected when the weather improves. This condition can also
indicate that the unit is unable to receive the signal from the NOC.
This is also associated with a signal level less than 30. This
occurs if there is a weather outage at the user location, a NOC
outage due to inclement weather or other reasons, a misaligned or
faulty antenna, or faulty cabling. If this keeps happening under
normal weather conditions, make sure the power supply is correct.
The power supply should be Part # 1031105-0001. If the power
supply is correct, try power-cycling the DW6000 by unplugging the
power cord from the wall outlet and then plugging it back in.
4
The receiver is locked to the wrong network
This condition should only be seen during installation and occurs
when the receiver is locked to an incorrect DIRECWAY satellite.
This could also happen if the installer enters incorrect information
during manual pointing. If this occurs during normal operation, it
may be due to the user changing satellite parameters, or the
antenna becoming misaligned.
5
The receiver is operational
This is the normal operating state where the receiver is receiving
data from the NOC. Only when the receiver is in this state will the
transmitter operate correctly.
6
The receiver is not detecting a signal
This condition occurs when the unit is not detecting any type of
radio signal from the antenna. This could indicate that the cabling
between the receiver and the antenna is faulty or that the receiver
itself is faulty. Check that the cables are firmly connected on the
DW6000. Also, make sure that the power supply is correct. The
power supply should be Part # 1031105-0001. Try power-cycling
the DW6000 by unplugging the power cord from the wall outlet
and then plugging it back in.
7
The receiver is locked to an unknown
network
This condition should only be seen during installation and occurs
when the receiver is locked to a non-DIRECWAY satellite. In rare
cases it may be due to a transient outage at the NOC. If this
occurs during pointing or commissioning, the antenna has not
been pointed correctly. If it occurs during normal operation, it may
be due to the user changing satellite parameters, or the antenna
becoming misaligned. The former condition can be corrected by
re-commissioning the site. The latter requires an antenna
repointing.

Comments
1
The transmitter has been
disabled by the Network
Operations Center
This condition occurs when the transmitter is not enabled. A transmitter may be
disabled for short periods of time by the NOC for service or troubleshooting. It
may also be disabled if the user discontinues the satellite service. If this
condition persists, it can only be corrected by requesting that the unit be
enabled.
2
The transmitter has been
placed in test mode by the
Network Operations Center
This status requires no user action and this test usually completes in 15 minutes
or less. This condition occurs when the NOC places the transmitter into special
transmission modes to measure the performance of the transmitter. When in this
mode, the unit is unable to transmit normal user data to the NOC.
3
The transmitter is locking to
the receive carrier
This condition occurs during initial startup or when the receiver is locking to the
receive signal. It is normal for this condition to persist for up to 10 seconds. If this
condition persists for more than 10 seconds, try disconnecting and reconnecting
the receiver coaxial cable and wait 10 seconds. If the situation still persists, then
the DW6000 may need to be replaced.
5
The transmitter is not locked to
the network timing
No action is necessary if this condition occurs from time to time and quickly
resolves itself. If this issue persists, it is likely due to a NOC-related service
issue. The condition may also be due to DW6000 failure; in rare cases, the unit
may fail and may have to be replaced.
6
The transmitter is not available
because the receiver is not
detecting a signal or is not
locked to the correct network
Check your receive signal. This condition occurs when the DW6000 is not
detecting a good signal. The receiver must be locked to the correct network in
order for the transmitter to operate. If the receiver is not locked (no signal) or is
locked to the wrong network, the transmitter is unable to transmit data. Please
verify that you have a good signal strength by going to the Receive Statistics
page. This could also be caused by inclement weather.
7
The transmitter is not available
because the satellite receiver
is not tuned for normal
operation
This condition occurs when the transmitter is disabled for safety reasons. If this
happens during installation or commissioning, the installer will close the Antenna
Pointing program and resolve the condition.
8
The transmitter is available
This is the normal operational state and indicates that the transmitter is ready to
transmit data.
9
The transmitter is adjusting for
optimal network timing
This condition typically occurs when the DW6000 is first commissioned or the
first time it is used for data traffic. This must occur before the DW6000 is able to
transmit successfully. Typically, this process usually takes less than a minute.
10
The transmitter is unable to
communicate with the Network
Operations Center
This condition indicates that the unit has stopped attempting to transmit user
data because there were a number of failures in sending data to the NOC over
the satellite link. This could be the result of weather conditions causing lost
packets or, rarely, return channel equipment failures in the NOC.
11
The transmitter is not available
because the receiver software
is out of date
This condition indicates that the installed software version is not recent enough
to operate on the network. New software will be required from time to time due to
network infrastructure and capability upgrades and in order to maintain network
efficiency and fix any known problems.The system will automatically update the
software version to ensure that you can enjoy uninterrupted operation. If you do
not use the DW6000 for a long period of time and miss the updates, you may
need to contact your service provider.

12
The transmitter is not
receiving network control
messages from the Network
Operations Center
This condition indicates a NOC equipment outage. This should be a transient
condition and the system should recover automatically.
13
The transmitter is unable to
range because it cannot
communicate with the Network
Operations Center
Ranging is the process that adjusts the satellite transmitter timing and power.
The satellite transmitter conducts ranging as needed to ensure that it can
communicate successfully with the Network Operations Center. This condition
can indicate any of the following:
• The NOC is not receiving ranging information from the transmitter. This may
indicate a transmit problem at the NOC. This should get cleared in a few
minutes.
• The transmitter is unable to achieve enough transmit power to send ranging
information to the NOC. Make sure that the power supply is correct. The power
supply should be Part #1031105-0001.
• The transmitter is sending incorrect timing data because an incorrect ZIP code
or incorrect latitude/longitude information was entered during installation.
• The outdoor transmitter unit (ODU)--that is, the antenna--is not operating
properly or is not properly connected to the DW6000. Please ensure that the
transmit cable is securely fastened to the satellite out connector.
14
The transmitter is not available
because ranging has failed
This condition indicates that the transmitter is not operational because ranging
has failed. Ranging is the process that adjusts the satellite transmitter timing and
power. The satellite transmitter conducts ranging as needed to ensure that it can
communicate successfully with the Network Operations Center. The ranging
failure may happen due to the antenna becoming misaligned or if repeated
attempts to range do not succeed. This condition may also be caused due to
adverse weather conditions. In rare cases, this may also indicate NOC issues
but should clear within a few minutes. If the system was operational in the past
and you see these messages repeatedly, you can try to force range by
performing the Connectivity Test.
15
The transmitter is waiting for a
ranging request to be
processed by the Network
Operations Center
This condition occurs if the system is busy adjusting power and timing for other
users. This process may take up to a minute or more.
16
The transmitter is waiting for a
transmit request to be
processed by the Network
Operations Center
This condition occurs when the system is unable to provide transmit bandwidth.
This occurs when many users sign-on simultaneously. It should clear in a few
minutes automatically.
17
The satellite transmitter is
unable to obtain an available
transmission rate
This condition occurs if the transmitter cannot successfully range. Ranging is the
process that adjusts the satellite transmitter timing and power. The satellite
transmitter conducts ranging as needed to ensure that it can communicate
successfully with the Network Operation Center. A possible cause is that the
transmitter could not achieve enough power to transmit. This is likely caused
because the antenna is not accurately pointed. However, it may also be a
transmitter power problem. Check the power supply and make sure that it is Part
# 1031105-0001.

Chapter 3 • The System Control Center
1033295-0001 Revision 2
Table 3: Transmit (TxCode) messages and corrective actions
18
The transmitter is requesting a
transmit pointing test
This condition can occur during installation when the Antenna Pointing program
requests that the transmitter perform a transmit pointing test. This condition
persists until the NOC responds that the transmitter is either actively performing
the pointing test or is queued to perform the test when test resources become
available in the NOC. This is a normal condition for initial installation. The
transmitter may also periodically go into this condition for short periods of time
(less than 5 seconds) to perform periodic transmit pointing tests. These periodic
tests are performed to ensure that the antenna is pointed accurately.
19
The transmitter is queued for a
transmit pointing test
This condition can occur during installation when the Antenna Pointing software
requests a transmit pointing test and the NOC has responded that the
transmitter is queued for the next available test time. It may also occur when the
transmitter is performing periodic background transmit pointing tests at the same
time that other users on the network have requested tests. This is a normal state
after initial installation.
20
The transmitter is performing a
transmit pointing test
This condition occurs when one of the following tests are active:
• During installation, the Antenna Pointing software requests that the transmitter
perform a transmit pointing test. This condition will persist until the Antenna
Pointing software exits from the transmit pointing test mode.
• The DW6000 performs a periodic background transmit pointing test to make
sure that the antenna is still pointed correctly. This periodic test takes less than
5 seconds.
If the problem persists, try power-cycling the DW6000 by unplugging the wall
outlet and plugging it back in.
21
The transmitter is disabled
because a transmit pointing
test failed
This condition occurs when the transmitter fails a transmit pointing test. This
indicates that the transmitter did not meet the minimum specifications required.
This is likely due to an antenna installation problem. The antenna installer needs
to fine-point the antenna. The transmitter will not transmit until the transmit
pointing test passes.
22
The transmitter is disabled
pending a transmit pointing
test
This condition occurs when the transmitter is required to perform a periodic
background transmit pointing test, but has not been able to perform the test
within the time window required. The transmitter is expected to be in this
condition for no more than two minutes at random periodic intervals. This
condition can also occur after the transmitter is first powered on after it has been
powered off for more than a day. If the unit remains in this condition for more
than two minutes, then the automated transmit pointing components in the NOC
are likely experiencing problems. This condition should clear in a few minutes.
23
The transmitter is disabled
because a transmit pointing
test cannot be performed
This condition occurs when the transmitter cannot perform the transmit pointing
test when initially installed or when the transmitter is required to range. The
condition indicates that the NOC components needed to perform the transmit
pointing test are not operational.

The Connectivity Test
Link
The unit may lose connectivity to a particular server due to the
Internet being heavily loaded or due to the server being down. If
possible, check connectivity to some other server on the Internet
to ensure it is not a server specific problem. Follow the procedure
below for troubleshooting.
Network Operations Center Use the Connectivity Test link to check connectivity to the
(NOC) Connectivity DIRECWAY NOC.
Note: You may want to open a second browser window to be able
to access the help page while conducting the Connectivity Test.
1. Click on Connectivity Test on the left hand side of the
System Control Center. A screen with a Start Test button
appears.
2. Click Start Test. A message will appear, informing you if the
test was successful.
If the connectivity test fails, check System Status and follow
the troubleshooting steps outlined earlier.
If the connectivity test succeeds, try pinging the Router
Address from the computer. This address can be obtained
from the System Information page. To ping, use the same set
of instructions that are in If the System Control Center is not
accessible on page 39, except type the Router Address.
If this succeeds, skip to the Internet Connectivity test below.
If this fails, the default gateway address is probably not set
correctly in the computer’s network settings. The default
gateway address should be the DW6000 IP address as
received during commissioning and displayed in System
Information. Fix this in the computer's network settings and
repeat the connectivity test.
If the connectivity test still fails, power-cycle the DW6000 by
unplugging the power cord from the wall outlet and plugging
it back in. If this doesn't fix the problem, call installer
support.

Internet Connectivity Try pinging the DIRECWAY Web server (www.direcway.com).
Use the same set of instructions that are in If the System Control
Center is not accessible on page 39, except type
www.direcway.com.
Note: The DIRECWAY Internet server may not be accessible or
may not respond. In such a case, you should try to ping another
Web server.
If pinging a different Web server succeeds, the problem is
probably in the particular server that you were trying to access.
If pinging a different Web server does not succeed, try pinging the
DNS server address 198.77.116.8. If you cannot ping the address,
contact installer support. Business customers should contact their
System Administrator.
If you can ping the address, check your DNS Server settings in
your operating system information. In Windows, for example, the
menu is accessed via Programs→Settings→Control Panel→
Network→Protocols→Properties→DNS. If you are using the
DIRECWAY DNS Server, make sure the DNS settings include
the "198.77.116.8" address. If not, use the Add button to add it to
the search order list. Then try accessing the DIRECWAY Internet
server or other Web servers. You should be successful.
If these steps do not work, wait awhile and try them again. There
may be a temporary Internet connection outage. If you retry all

Check Network Operations Use the Connectivity Test link to check connectivity to the
Center (NOC) connectivity DIRECWAY Network Operations Center (NOC).
Note: You may want to open a second browser window to be able
to access the help page while conducting the Connectivity Test.
1. Click on Connectivity Test on the left hand side of the
System Control Center. A screen with a Start Test button
appears. See Figure 59.
2. Click Start Test. A message will appear, informing you if the
test was successful.
3. If the connectivity test succeeds but you still cannot surf the
Internet, try pinging the Router Address from your computer.
Ping is a basic Internet program that lets you verify that a
particular IP address exists and can accept requests. Ping is
used diagnostically to ensure that a host computer you are
trying to reach is actually operating. Ping operates by sending
a packet to a designated address and waiting for a response.
Windows and MacIntosh operating systems both let you use
ping.
a. At the Control Center, click on the System Info indicator.
The System Info screen appears.
b. From the DW6000 Information box, record the router
address.
c. In Windows, go to Start→Run. The Run box appears.
d. Type command in the Open field and click OK. The
Command window appears. See Figure 60.
e. At the prompt, type ping followed by a space and the
router address and press ENTER. For example, if the router
address is 100.100.100.100, type ping
100.100.100.100 and press ENTER. If the ping is
successful, the message in Figure 60 appears. If it fails, the
message will show the packets were lost; timeout messages
will probably also appear. See Figure 61.
f. Close the window to end the Command session.
If pinging the Router Address succeeds but you still cannot
surf the Internet, skip to the Internet Connectivity test below.
If pinging the Router Address fails, the default gateway
address is probably not set correctly in the computer’s
operating system settings. The default gateway address
should be the DW6000 IP address as received during
commissioning and displayed in the System Information
DW6000 Info box in the IP address line. Fix this in the
computer's operating system settings. See Appendix A –
Typical operating system settings, on page 43. Then repeat
the sequence above.
62
Chapter 4 • DW6000 LEDs and troubleshooting
1033295-0001 Revision 2

Internet Connectivity Sometimes the Internet or Internet site is experiencing problems.
Try pinging the DIRECWAY Web server (www.direcway.com)
instead of the Web server or site you could not connect to.
Note: The DIRECWAY Internet server may not be accessible or
may not respond. In such a case, you should try to ping another
Web server.
If pinging the DIRECWAY Web server succeeds, the problem is
probably in the particular Web server that you were trying to
access. Try accessing it later.
If pinging the DIRECWAY Web server does not succeed, try
pinging the DNS server address 198.77.116.8. If you cannot ping
that address, contact installer support. If you are a business
customer contact your System Administrator.
If you can ping the DNS server address but not surf the Internet,
check the DNS Server settings in your operating system TCP/IP
settings. In Windows 2000, for example, the menu is accessed
using the instructions below. Other Windows systems will have
similar windows and menus.
1. Go to Programs→Settings→Control Panel→Network and
Dial-up Connections.
2. Right-click on the Local Area Connection icon and select
Properties. The Local Area Connection Properties window
appears.
3. Select TCP/IP from the list of components and click
Properties. The Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties
window appears.
4. Click Advanced. The Advanced TCP/IP Settings window
appears.
5. Click Add in the Default Gateways box. A TCP/IP Gateway
Address screen appears.
6. Type 198.77.116.8 in the Gateway field and click Add.
The address is added to the Default Gateways list.
7. Click OK to close all the windows.
8. Now try accessing or pinging the DIRECWAY Internet server
or other Web servers again. You should be successful.
If these steps do not work, wait awhile and try them again. There
may be a temporary Internet connection outage.
If you still cannot surf the Internet and you are using a firewall,
work through the firewall instructions below. Otherwise, please
contact your service provider for further assistance.
64
Chapter 4 • DW6000 LEDs and troubleshooting
1033295-0001 Revision 2
Check for virus and firewall If you have checked gone through all the steps in this section and
issues still cannot surf the Internet, check your computer for viruses. A
virus can prevent you from operating normally. If you find a
virus, delete or disable it and try surfing again.
If you are using a firewall, check that none of your settings are
blocking access to the Internet or the DIRECWAY servers. If you
do not know how to do this, disable the firewall. If you can surf
after disabling the firewall, you need to learn how to set up the
firewall so that it does not block DIRECWAY. Refer to the
firewall manufacturer’s instructions.
Finally, check and make sure you are using the latest version of
your virus and/or firewall program. These are updated frequently.
If you are not using the latest version, update and run the
programs again.

Dotted decimal notation - An IP address
consists of 32 bits. Rather than working with 32
bits at a time, it is a common practice to segment
the 32 bits of an IP address into four 8-bit fields
called octets. Each octet is converted to a
decimal number (the Base 10 numbering
system) in the range 0-255 and separated by a
period (a dot).
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) a communications protocol that lets network
administrators manage centrally and automate
the assignment of Internet Protocol (IP)

Internet protocol (IP) - The method or protocol
by which data is sent from one computer to
another on the Internet. Each computer (known
as a host) on the Internet has at least one IP
address that uniquely identifies it from all other
computers on the Internet. The protocol within
TCP/IP that governs the breakup of data
messages into packets, routing the packets from
sender to destination network and station, and
reassembling the packets into the original data
messages at the destination.
Internet service provider (ISP) - A business that
supplies Internet connectivity services to
individuals, businesses, and organizations.
Some ISPs are large national or multinational
corporations that offer access in many locations,
while others are limited to a single city or
region.
H
Host - In packet- and message-switching
communications networks, the collection of
hardware and software that makes use of packet
or message switching to support user-to-user,
i.e., end-to-end, communications, interprocess
communications, and distributed data
processing. More simply, any computer that has
full two-way access to other computers on the
Internet.
IP address - a 32-bit number that identifies each
sender or receiver of information that is sent in
packets across the Internet. An IP address has two
parts: the identifier of a particular network on the
Internet and an identifier of the particular device
(which can be a server or a workstation) within
that network. On the Internet itself - that is,
between the router that move packets from one
point to another along the route - only the network
part of the address is looked at.

Performance enhancing proxy (PEP) - modules
that provide TCP acceleration. PEP is used to
improve the performance of the Internet
protocols on network paths where native
performance suffers due to characteristics of a

Private IP addressing - A computer on the
Internet is identified by its IP address. In order
to avoid address conflicts, IP addresses are
publicly registered with the Network
Information Centre (NIC). Computers on private
TCP/IP LANs however do not need public
addresses, since they do not need to be accessed
by the public. For this reason, the NIC has
reserved certain addresses that will never be
registered publicly. These are known as private
IP addresses.

2. At the Installation Menu prompt, enter a to obtain antenna
pointing values and assigned satellite parameters. The
Antenna Pointing - Receiver screen in Figure 104 appears.
Figure 104: Antenna Pointing - Receiver
The SQF represents the strength of the received signal
relative to noise. SQF is an integer value between 0 and 99.
The SQF value is interpreted as follows:
– 0-29. The receive modem is not locked onto the desired
signal. The value increases as the DW6000 receives
stronger signal power.
– 31-99. The receive modem is locked onto the desired
satellite signal.
– 30. The receive modem is locked onto a satellite signal, but
is waiting for a message confirming that it is locked to the
correct signal. An unchangeable value of 30 indicates that
the receive modem is locked onto a wrong signal.
3. If the SQF is less than 30, refine the antenna pointing to bring
the SQF over 40 and to as close to 99 as possible. The SQF
message updates automatically. There is a delay of up to 10
seconds between the displayed and the current SQF value.
4. If you cannot achieve a satisfactory SQF, take the steps below
in the order suggested until the situation is corrected.
a. Check for unobstructed view to the satellite.
b. Refine antenna aiming.
c. Check LNB polarization.
d. Check receive symbol rate.
e. Replace LNB.
f. Replace entire DW6000 unit.

wait for the test to be run, and are placed in a queue until it
can be run.)
The result of the test is shown in the Result: field. PASS
means the transmit modem will be enabled and the system
should be operational. FAIL means the transmit modem will
be disabled and the dish pointing needs to be checked.
2. Whether you pass or fail, press Enter to return to the
Installation Menu.
3. Enter z to return to the Main Menu.
4. At the Main Menu enter c. The Satellite Interface Statistics

Installing DVADB
DVADB features
The DIRECWAY Virtual Private Network (VPN) Automatic Dial
Backup (ADB) (DVADB) feature provides a backup
infrastructure to the DW6002 should the satellite link fail or
degrade below an acceptable threshold.
DVADB automatically switches the DW6002 to a terrestrial
dial-up telephone network with minimal interruption and loss of
customer traffic. DVADB introduces no additional load on the
DW6002 and does not affect any existing DW6002 features, but
will make the DW6002 send and receive traffic at a slower rate.
To use DVADB, the DW6002 via dial-up connection to a global
network of Points of Presence (POPs). Each POP is an access
point to the Internet. The packets are sent from the POP to the
NOC, which in turn forwards them to the destination server.
DVADB pre-installation
The following must be fulfilled before DVADB can be installed:
• The DW6002 must be installed, commissioned, and
functioning before DVADB can be installed.
• The customer must have an analog phone line.
• A telephone splitter and RJ-11 telephone cable is required.
Appendix E • Installing DVADB
1033295-0001 Revision 2
129
Installation procedure
To install DVADB, do the following:
• Install the hardware
• Configure the software
• Test to ensure DVADB is functioning
Before beginning the installation, check the telephone line dialout
sequence. If it does not match the sequence in the installation
specification, or as shown in the Advanced pages, (see
Troubleshooting DVADB on page 134), contact installer support.
1. Attach the RJ-11 cable from the DW6002 Gateway telco port
to a phone splitter (such as the one built into a surge
protector). Then connect the splitter to the existing phone
line. The final configuration will look like Figure 123.

Troubleshooting DVADB
Use the troubleshooting procedure below if the DW6002 is
unable to connect through VADB, or not able to authenticate with
the server. Before starting the procedure, verify the DW6002 is
commissioned.
1. Verify the Transmit LED is lit before attempting to connect
via VADB. If it is not then check the connections and serial
cable.
2. Attempt to connect via the internal modem three times. If the
connection fails all three times, continue with Step 3. If the
internal modem connects, the DW6002 is set up for use with
VADB.
3. Verify the phone number is correct and has the right prefix
and suffix.
a. Open the Advanced pages.
b. From the right most drop-down box, choose
vadb_config_show(). See Figure 127.
c. Verify prim phone_num and bakup phone_num are correct
and have the correct prefix and suffix.
4. If the number being dialed is incorrect, request the NOC
update the phone number(s).
