Safety Guidelines
z
Follow these guidelines to ensure general safety:
z
Keep the chassis area clear and dust-free before, during and after installation.
z
Do not wear loose clothing or jewelry that could get caught in the chassis. Fasten your tie
or scarf and roll up your sleeves.
z
Wear safety glasses/goggles if you are working under any conditions that might be
hazardous to your eyes.
z
Do not perform any action that creates a potential hazard to people or makes the
equipment unsafe.
z
Disconnect all power by turning off the power and unplugging the power cord before
installing or removing a chassis or working near power supplies
z
Do not work alone if potentially hazardous conditions exist.
z
Never assume that power is disconnected from a circuit; always check the circuit.
LITHIUM BATTERY CAUTION:
Risk of explosion could occur if battery is replaced by an incorrect type. Please dispose of
used batteries according to the recycling instructions of your country.
z
Installation only by a trained electrician or only by an electrically trained person who knows
all the applied or related installation and device specifications..
z
Do not carry the handle of power supplies when moving to other place.
z
The machine can only be used in a fixed location such as labs or computer facilities.
Operating Safety
z
Electrical equipment generates heat. Ambient air temperature may not be adequate to
cool equipment to acceptable operating temperatures without adequate circulation. Be
sure that the room in which you choose to operate your system has adequate air
circulation.
z
Ensure that the chassis cover is secure. The chassis design allows cooling air to circulate
effectively. An open chassis permits air leaks, which may interrupt and redirect the flow of
cooling air from internal components.
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) can damage equipment and impair electrical circuitry. ESD
damage occurs when electronic components are improperly handled and can result in
Network Computing Platforms
complete or intermittent failures. Be sure to follow ESD-prevention procedures when removing
and replacing components to avoid these problems.
z
Wear an ESD-preventive wrist strap, ensuring that it makes good skin contact. If no wrist
strap is available, ground yourself by touching the metal part of the chassis.
z
Periodically check the resistance value of the antistatic strap, which should be between 1
and 10 megohms (Mohms).
Mounting Installation Environment Precaution
1. Elevated Operating Ambient - If installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the
operating ambient temperature of the rack environment may be greater than room ambient.
Therefore, consideration should be given to installing the equipment in an environment
compatible with the maximum ambient temperature (Tma) specified by the manufacturer.
2. Reduced Air Flow - Installation of the equipment in a rack should be such that the amount of
air flow required for safe operation of the equipment is not compromised.
3. Mechanical Loading - Mounting of the equipment in the rack should be such that a
hazardous condition is not achieved due to uneven mechanical loading.
4. Circuit Overloading - Consideration should be given to the connection of the equipment to
the supply circuit and the effect that overloading of the circuits might have on over-current
protection and supply wiring. Appropriate consideration of equipment nameplate ratings
should be used when addressing this concern.
5. Reliable Earthing - Reliable earthing of rack-mounted equipment should be maintained.
Particular attention should be given to supply connections other than direct connections to the
branch circuit (e.g. use of power strips).”

Appendix A: Programming Watchdog Timer
A watchdog timer is a piece of hardware that can be used to automatically detect system
anomalies and reset the processor in case there are any problems. Generally speaking, a
watchdog timer is based on a counter that counts down from an initial value to zero. The
software selects the counter’s initial value and periodically restarts it. Should the counter reach
zero before the software restarts it, the software is presumed to be malfunctioning
and the processor’s reset signal is asserted. Thus, the processor will be restarted as if a
human operator had cycled the power.
For sample watchdog code, see WD folder under Driver and Utility on the Driver and Manual CD.
Network Computing Platforms
Appendix B: Setting up Console
Redirection
Console redirection lets you monitor and configure a system from a remote terminal computer
by re-directing keyboard input and text output through the serial port. These following steps
illustrate how to use this feature. The BIOS of the system allows the redirection of console I/O
to a serial port. With this configured, you can remotely access the entire boot sequence
through a console port.
1. Connect one end of the console cable to console port of the system and the other end to
serial port of the Remote Client System.
2. Configure the following settings in the BIOS Setup menu:
BIOS > Advanced > Remote Access Configuration > Serial Port Mode > [115200, 8 , n ,1 ]
3. Configure Console Redirection on the client system. The following is an example on
Windows platform:
a. A. Click the start button, point to Programs > Accessories > Communications and select
Hyper Terminal.
b. B. Enter any name for the new connection and select any icon.
c. Click OK.
d. From the “Connect to”. Pull-down menu, select the appropriate Com port on the client
system and click OK.
e. Select 115200 for the Baud Rate, None. for Flow control, 8 for the Data Bit, None for Parity
Check, and 1 for the Stop Bit.
For items on the setup, please refer to the console redirection of the BIOS menu.

Appendix C: Programming Generation 3
LAN Bypass
The bypass function is used to link two independent Ethernet ports when the system crashes
or powers off. This means if your system is equipped with a LAN Bypass function, a condition
in your system will not interrupt your network traffic. Different from the previous two
generations (Gen1 and Gen2), the Lanner Bypass Gen 3 employs a programming method to
control the bypass function by software. There are typically two communication status for the
bypass function, one is “Normal” and another is “Bypass” status. Furthermore, the Lanner
Bypass software is capable to control the bypass status in the following 3 instances.
1. When the system powers off, it can be forced to enable the LAN Bypass function.
2. When the system is in the just-on state which is a brief moment when it powers up.
3. When the system is running
Please refer to the LAN_Bypass_Watchdog folder on the Driver and Manual CD.
Lanner bypass possess the following features:
1. Communication through SMBUS (I2C)
2. Independent bypass status control for each pair up to a total of 4 pairs
3. Lanner Bypass Modules can bypass systems Ethernet ports on a host system during three
instances: Just-on (Just-on is the brief moment when the internal power supply turns on and
booting process starts), System off, or upon software request (during run-time).
4. Software programmable bypass or normal mode
5. Software programmable timer interval:
- JUST-ON watchdog timer, used during JUST-ON, has timer setting of 5~1275 seconds of
timer interval.
- Run-Time watchdog timer, used during run-time, has setting of 1~255 seconds of timer
interval.
6. Multiple Watchdog Timers:
-Two for run-time: It is designed to give you a more variety of controls of the bypass on port
basis. By using dedicated watchdogs for different pairs of bypass, you have the flexibility to
manage the bypass status for them differently.
-One for just-on: It is designed to give you the precise control of the bypass during this phase.
You can use this timer to delay enabling the bypass in just-on state.
For sample LAN bypass code and the Bypass Manual, see the LAN_Bypass folder on the
Driver and Manual CD or the Lanner Support Website at
Network Computing Platforms
http://www.lannerinc.com/download-center/ and browse the download center and look for
Lanner LAN Bypass Watchdog User Manual under the Accessories folder.
Fro a description of the physical LAN ports equipped with this function, refer to Front Panel
Features in Chapter1 Introduction.

Appendix D: Programming the LCM
The LCD panel module (LCM) is designed to provide real-time operating status and
configuration information for the system. For sample LCM code, see LCM folder in the Driver
and Manual CD. The driver and the program library can also be found in the folder.
The system supports the following 2 kinds of LCM:
• Parallel Text-based LCM: The LCM connects to the motherboard’s parallel port. The LCD
screen can display 2 lines, 16 (or 20) characters per line.
• USB and Serial Text or Graphic-based LCM: Our next generation LCM. Lanner engineers
design a common source code to be deployed on these two differently interfaced LCM
modules. Jumpers are used to select between text and graphic types. See next section.
For Parallel Text-based LCM
Build
To build program source code on Linux platform, please use the following steps as a guideline:
1. Extract the source file:
# tar -xzvf plcm_drv_v0XX.tgz

Virtualization Implemented by Parallel
Port Pass Through
By the utilization of the parallel port pass through, the Parallel Text-based LCM implements the
following three kinds of virtualization in the Guest OS.
- QEMU/KVM
- Xen
- VMWare Player
Here, we take the Fedora 20 x86_64 operation system for instance to explain 3 virtualization
respectively for parallel port pass through. Use the procedures listed below for step-by-step
instructions separately based on your case.
In case of QEMU/KVM or Xen, please use the following steps as a guideline to implement the
virtualization :
(1) Make sure that the Guest OS has been installed.
(2) Add the following 4 lines into the xml file (for example, add to
/etc/libvirt/qemu/<yourvirtualmachine>.xml in linux KVM):
<parallel type=’dev’>
<source path=’/dev/parport0’/>
<target port=’0’/>
</parallel>
(3) Open a terminal in the Guest OS and then issue the following commands to install Linux
Kernel drivers.
# modprobe parport
# modprobe parport_pc
# modprobe ppdev
(4) Check that whether the /dev/parport0 exists or not. You may not find proper /dev/parport0
in the device list, please reconfirm the setup of xml file in the Guest OS.
(5) Reboot the Guest OS.
Note: It is necessary for you to install “insmod parport.ko”, “parport_pc.ko” and “ppdev.ko”
Linux Kernel drivers in virtualization environment before executing the “ppdev_test” testing
program.
In case of VMWare Player, please use the following steps as a guideline to implement the
virtualization:
(1) Make sure that the Guest OS has been installed.
(2) To set up the parallel port pass through, please enter VMWare Player’s --> Virtual Machine
Network Computing Platforms
Setting --> VMWare Player’s setting page to select /dev/parport0 as parallel port device.
(3) Open a terminal in the Guest OS and then issue the following commands to install Linux
Kernel drivers.
# modprobe parport
# modprobe parport_pc
# modprobe ppdev
4) Check that whether the /dev/parport0 exists or not. You may not find proper “/dev/parport0”
in the device list, please reconfirm the setup of VMWare Player’s setting page described in
Step 2.
(5) Reboot the Guest OS.
Note: It is still necessary for you to install “insmod parport.ko”, “parport_pc.ko” and “ppdev.ko”
Linux Kernel drivers in virtualization environment before executing the “ppdev_test” testing
program.
