NOTE 4 Install the IPSETUP.exe file on the host computer. Static NetBurner IP Setup The UI software is compatible with Microsoft® Internet Explorer 7 or Mozilla® Firefox 2.0 for Windows. Units are shipped with a default IP address of for low band transmit and for high band transmit units. Static IP Address The E‐Link 1000 EXR management port is capable of using either static IP ad‐
dresses or DHCP assigned addresses. Before assigning a static IP address con‐
firm the IP address is not assigned to another device on the network. If the E‐
Link is on an isolated network, the operator may select one of the reserved addresses described in the “How to select an IP address” section of the User Interface Manual P/N 980‐0100‐002. A default access level of “Everyone” is given when a user has not logged in. NOTE Access Levels Connect host computer to a powered‐up E‐link Radio. Netburner IP Setup Tool is accessible via (http://www.netburner.com/support/
public_downloads.html) Connect host computer to a powered‐up E‐link Radio. Execute the IPSetup.exe program from the host computer. The operator accesses the User Interface (UI) by opening a web browser, enter the IP address assigned to the unit, for example, enter in the browser address bar. NOTE A similar window is provided when using the Firefox browser. Network Configuration Step by Step Instructions An access level security is implemented for the User Interface. The informa‐
tion that is displayed or changed may be restricted to only those access levels appropriate for the specific activity. A valid User Name/Password (UN/
PW) combination is required to enter at each access level. (The user name and password are case sensitive). The enabling and disabling of Access Levels is user controllable. E‐Link 1000EXR Terminal Login Login and Logout selections are available near the bottom of the lower left of the Contents section of any window frame. Access to the Operational Status information does not require a login. Determine how the E‐Link IP address will be set. Either manually assigned by entering a static IP address or automatically by a DHCP Server. NOTE User Interface 5 UI Revision 2.04
This guide provides basic instructions for connections and setup for the E‐Link 1000EXR User Interface (UI) software and link configuration parameters. •
Once the hardware installation is complete and the radio terminal is powered up it is necessary to either verify the automatic network settings or assign static network settings. The IPSetup program will automatically locate all E‐Link/ NetBurner devices on the network. If more than one device appears, select the terminal by matching the MAC address displayed in IPSetup with the MAC address infor‐
mation supplied. NOTE HTTP’s Basic Authentication is used to set the UserName / Password User Name Password Admin control If setting a static IP address Engineer analyze Enter your IP Address and subnet mask in the corresponding IPSetup text boxes. For example, if you are on an isolated network, the IP Address could be and the Mask could be (see “How to Select an IP Address”). Select the “Set” button to send the modifications in the E‐Link terminal. Set the Gateway and DNS as required by your network adminsta‐
tor. These settings are not required when connected directly to the radio for initial configuration. Installer antenna admin admin Operational Status Page The initial screen presented to the user after connecting to the internal web server is the Operational Status Page. This page provides a real time status of the local terminal. The LED Indicators will display in green when no fault conditions are pre‐
sent under normal operating conditions. Located next to the LED’s a text message is displayed detailing the status of each LED. Operational Status Page (Everyone Login) If setting a dynamic IP address using DHCP Verify that the IP address and mask are set to: IP address: Network mask: Gateway: DNS: Click on Set the E‐Link will request an IP configuration setting from the DHCP server. CAUTION User Access level will affect screen display attributes. The E‐Link‐1000 / Netburner hardware is now configured. Dynamic IP Address (DHCP) The E‐Link radio terminal’s management port can request an IP address from a network DHCP server if a static IP address is not set. This request normally occurs with the radio’s software first boots or a manual request is made. If the DHCP server is available all network parameters will be configured automati‐
cally. Authentication Pop‐up Operational Status Page (Admin Login) NetBurner Dynamic IP Setup After logging on, the “Contents” section of the default page will display the current status of the radio.
