Chapter 4. Installation
Chapter 4.Installation
This chapter provides the information required for the connection of WiComm-1 to a desired serial device, such as
WiComm-1’s Wi-Fi, LAN and serial connection.
The way to connect WiComm-1 to devices and network is described below.
4.1 Connecting the PC
4.1.1
Connecting the LAN Cable
LAN cable is used only when WiComm-1 is connected to network through a cable connection.
Connect an end of a LAN cable to the LAN port of WiComm-1 and the other end to a hub, a switch or different
network equipment that is accessible to a network.
WiComm-1 supports 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps Ethernet connection (Automatic detection).
Note
Since WiComm-1 automatically detects Crossover cable or Direct cable regardless of its type,
a user may connect any type of cable.
4.1.2
Connecting the Serial Cable
With a DB9 serial cable, connect an external serial device or PC’s serial port to the serial port of WiComm-1.
Refer to ‘Chapter3. Hardware Description’ for cable specification or detailed information.
4-1
Chapter 4. Installation
4.1.3
Connecting the power adapter
1. Connect the power adapter of WiComm-1 to an AC outlet. WiComm-1 performs various tests automatically and
it may take several seconds for normal operation.
2. Verify that the WiComm-1 is normally operated. If the WiComm-1 is operated normally, the PWR LED turns on

4.2 WiComm-1 Access and Environment Setting
After connecting the WiComm-1 to a PC, let's access the WiComm-1.
y
y
To access the WiComm-1, the IP address of the WiComm-1 is required. However, in most cases, a DHCP
server does not assign the same IP whenever the power is turned on, so it is recommended to use a fixed IP
address.
In default, a fixed cable IP address (10.10.1.1) is assigned in the WiComm-1.
4.2.1
Network Setting for a PC
1. To access the WiComm-1, network setting for a PC should be changed to enable the PC to access 10.10.1.1.
Perform the network setting by referring to the figure below:

Environment Setting
After connecting a power cable to a power adapter or a terminal block, the WiComm-1 is booted when the power of
WiComm-1 is turned on. Since, however, wireless network setting is not provided in the initial factory setting, the
environment setting for the LAN port of the WiComm-1.
For the environment setting, a user should be aware of followings:
y
y
y
y
The IP address of the WiComm-1 should be set before connected to a network.
The default value for the network of the equipment is Static. If the network supports Dynamic Host
Configuration Protocol (DHCP), the WiComm-1 searches a DHCP server automatically to assign an IP address
just after the WiComm-1 is turned on.
If the network does not support DHCP, a fixed IP address should be set up.
In most cases, since DHCP servers do not assign the same addresses whenever the WiComm-1 is turned on, it
is recommended to use a fixed IP address. (Contact a user system administrator for technical support).
1) Setting via Web
A user can easily carry out the environment setting for the WiComm-1 via the Web and can access the Web by using
any Web browser. For detailed information, refer to ‘Chapter 5. Setting via Web’.
2) Setting by Telnet
A user can carry out the environment setting for the WiComm-1 by Telnet. For detailed information, refer to
‘Chapter 6. Setting by Telnet’.
3) Setting via Portview
The WiComm-1 can be monitored via Port view, which is a windows-based utility developed by SystemBase Co.,
Ltd. For detailed information, refer to Portview User’s Manual.

•TCP Server : WiComm-1 acts as a socket server and waits the access
from a client on the network.
The waiting socket number is specified in [Local Socket Port]. If the socket
connection is completed, the data generated between the socket and the
serial port is transmitted as it as.
•TCP Client : When a specific server waits the connection from the network,
WiComm-1 acts as a client of the socket and attempts to access by using
the specified IP address and socket number of the server. When the
socket connection is completed, the data generated between the socket
and the serial port is transmitted as it as.
The server IP address and port number to request the access is specified
in the [Remote IP/Port] menu.
•TCP Multi-Server : WiComm-1 acts as a server and allows the maximum
five socket clients to access simultaneously, so the WiComm-1 broadcasts
the same data for each socket.
•UDP Server : WiComm-1 acts as an UDP server and waits the UDP
access from a client on the network.
The waiting socket number is specified in [Local Socket Port].
If UDP packets are received as a socket number waiting the access, the
WiComm-1 transmits data through the serial port and creates an UDP
packet with the data from the serial port to transmit a client.
•UDP Client : If data is entered from the serial port, the WiComm-1
transmits UDP packets to the specified server’s IP address and socket
number. The server IP address and port number to request the access is

Keepalive
Time
0 sec
For example, let’s suppose Operation Mode is a TCP server and Alive
Check Time is set to 10. The TCP server waits the access from a network
and then is connected if the access from a client is detected. After that, if
no packet is received from the connected client for 10 seconds after the
recent packet was received, the server disconnects the connection and
returns to the standby mode.
This setting is required because if abnormal termination (rebooting, short of
LAN cable, etc.) occurs in one of the WiComm-1 and the client connected
via a network, it can result in the communication failure.
(Since a device cannot check the status of the status of the other device, it
considers that the connection is alive.)
The default setting as ‘0’ does not perform this function and continuously
maintains the socket access connected.
This function is only applied when the operation mode is TCP Client, TCP

Let’s suppose a serial device continuously transmits a string in length of
100 bytes. If this values is set to 100, the WiComm-1 waits until all of 100
bytes are received and then transmits the data as a packet to a server
through a socket. If 200-byte string is transmitted, the WiComm-1 divides
the string into two packets in unit of 100-byte.
If a data with less than 100 byte is received, the WiComm-1 transmits the
data as a packet to a server when no data is received for about 20 ms after
receiving the last data.
In the setting of ‘1’, the WiComm-1 transmits the received data in unit of
byte to a server. Therefore, several packets are transmitted to the server.
The setting range is between 1 byte and 1100 bytes.

8.2.1
Troubleshooting for Installation
If you cannot access a device connected via the WiComm-1, it is better to check the network connection and cables
first.
y
y
y
y
y
Check if all cables are correctly connected. (Ethernet or DB-9 serial cables)
Check if 127 V adapter provided is used as the power adapter.
If the LED status is abnormal, it may be caused by a problem from 10baseT or 100baseT cable, or a hub port.
The reconnection with another cable or hub port or the connection of another device to the cable may help you
analyze the cause of the problem.
Check if all IP addresses and port numbers are correctly entered.
If a hub is being used, check if hub ports are normally working by connecting the WiComm-1 to another port.
8.2.2

If TCP/IP is used, check if the PC and the WiComm-1 exist on the same network. (Check the connection with
the WiComm-1 by running the ping command on the PC). The IP address of the WiComm-1 should exist on
the same logical network as the host computer. For example, if the IP address of the PC is 192.189.207.3 and
the subnet mask is set to 255.255.255.0, the IP address of the WiComm-1 should be set to 192.189.207.x (x is
an integer between 1 to 254). In addition, check if the address of the default gateway is correctly assigned.
If the IP address the WiComm-1 is automatically assigned through a DHCP server, the WiComm-1 IP address
may be changed. A fixed IP address is assigned when the DHCP server assigns a permanent IP address to the
WiComm-1 or the fixed IP address assignment is set in the WiComm-1.
A problem may occur from an incorrect or duplicate IP address Check if the IP address is assigned to the
WiComm-1 correctly and if the IP address is assigned to another device on the network. In TCP/IP connection,
IP address confliction is the most frequent problem. If the IP address is incorrect, it may be the problem of the
device connection.
Check if the PC and the WiComm-1 are using the same subnet mask. (For example, if the WiComm-1 uses the
subnet mask of 255.255.255.0, the computer should use the same subnet mask). In addition, check if the
default gateway is set correctly.
If an incorrect IP address is assigned, find the DHCP server and check if the DHCP server assigned incorrect IP
address to the WiComm-1.

Troubleshooting for Setting Networks
Troubleshooting for Setting Ports
If a PC is not connected to a target device, check the connection status by using the PING x.x.x.x command
(x.x.x.x is the IP address of the WiComm-1) on the command prompt. If the ping test is not performed correctly,

the PC cannot access serial devices.
If a problem occurs while using the COM port redirector (emulator) function, check if the correct virtual port is
used while an application program is running. Check if the virtual port is specified correctly in the COM port
setting of the application program.

Troubleshooting for Setting Wireless Networks
Check if a wireless adapter (for wireless communication of a PC) or wireless AP of the PC is set correctly.
Check if the setting for wireless mode, SSID, WEP or other security, or IP address is correct.
Check if the sensitivity of wireless signals is sufficient or the WiComm-1 is out of wireless communication
range (about 90 m).
After generating wireless signals through Bluetooth device, wireless phone or electronic microwave, check if
the WiComm-1 is closed to a device with the risk of interference.
Check if wireless communication mode, such as Infrastructure mode requiring the connection of an AP and AdHoc mode that AP is not necessary, is set correctly.
If the wireless network is protected by using WEP encryption algorithm or password security, many wireless
adapters or APs may use passwords or Passphases. At this time, 10-digit key (40-bit or 64-bit WEP) or 26-digit
key (128-bit WEP) should follow the prefix, “0x” in hexadecimal format.
If the communication is slowed or disconnected from time to time, change the wireless network channel. The
channel can be changed via Web interface or Telnet. For addition information, refer to the documents
concerned with wireless adapter or AP. When changing the channel, it is recommended to select a channel that
is 3-channel higher or lower than other wireless channels in use on the current wireless network.
