2 Installation

To install the inSentry II on a network and change its configuration, you need a workstation running Microsoft

Windows (2000, XP or later). There are two ways to configure the inSentry II:

1. By connecting the inSentry II to the serial port of a workstation.

2. By connecting the inSentry II to LAN.

2.1 Installing inSentry II via Serial Port

Follow the steps below to install the inSentry II via the serial port.

1. Connect the supplied RJ45/DB9 (M) serial cable from the

RJ45 connector labeled “EMD-1” of the inSentry II to the

COM port on the workstation.

Figure 2-1 Connect inSentry II to workstation

10

Installation

2. Connect the supplied CAT 5 network cable from any RJ45 connector labeled “EMD-2, 3, or 4” of the inSentry II to the port labeled “010101” on an EMD.

Configuration

3.2 Configuring inSentry II via Telnet

When you have installed the inSentry II via LAN (refer to

Chapter 2.2), you can configure the inSentry II via Telnet by the following steps.

1. Make sure you have a PC with the TCP/IP network installed.

2. Run command shell (i.e. Windows MS-DOS prompt).

3. The inSentry II will initially try to acquire an IP address from the DHCP network service on the network, if available. You can also login the inSentry II by the console connection, and obtain the IP address in the inSentry II “Configuration/ System Group” section (see

Chapter 3.1.1.1).

5. From this point, the configuration procedures are the same as the configuration via RS-232 serial port. Refer to

Chapter 3.1 for more information.

Note: If there is no DHCP network service on the network, contact your network administrator to get an

IP address for your inSentry II and set the IP address to your inSentry II. If the administrator gives you the same IP address as inSentry II’s default IP address, you can omit setting the IP address for inSentry II. The default IP address of the inSentry II is

192.168.XXX.ZZZ where XXX and ZZZ is the last two pairs of the MAC address of the inSentry II in decimal.

4.1 Manipulating Network Routing

Table in Windows

Normally, if the workstation and the inSentry II are in the same subnet, you can access the inSentry II directly by the web browser installed on the workstation. If not, follow the steps below to use the “route add” command to manipulate the network routing table in your workstation.

1. Procure a workstation (with Microsoft Windows 95, 98,

ME, NT4.0, 2000, or XP installed) and set up the TCP/IP protocol, if necessary.

2. Run command shell (i.e. Windows MS-DOS prompt).

3. Enter the following command to add a routing condition:

route add <inSentry II IP> <workstation IP>, e.g.,

“route add 172.17.7.18 210.67.192.147”, and press Enter.

30

Figure 4-1 Add a routing condition in command shell

Note: The default IP address of the inSentry II is

192.168.XXX.ZZZ where XXX and ZZZ are the last two pairs of the MAC address of inSentry II in decimal.

For example, if the inSentry II MAC address =

00 E0 D8 04 0A 15, the IP = 172.17.10.21.

Please refer to the Windows manual for detailed information on how to add a routing condition to the workstation.

Managing inSentry II via SNMP

6 Managing inSentry II via SNMP

To manage your inSentry II or EMD via SNMP NMS (Network

Management Station), you may want to customize some of the SNMP settings (such as system name, system contact and system location).

Note: Before using the inSentry II in SNMP environment, the IP address and the gateway must be configured properly. See Chapter 4.5 for details.

6.1 Setting SNMP Access Control

The inSentry II supports SNMP protocol. You can use SNMP

NMS to manage EMD through the network. The IP address of the workstation must be entered in the inSentry II write access table to prevent unauthorized users from configuring the inSentry II via HTTP or SNMP protocols.

Note: If you do not specify the IP address of the workstation in the Access Control Table (via serial port or Telnet) or the SNMP/HTTP Access Control (via web browser) in the inSentry II, you can only view the EMD status from the SNMP, and will not be able to perform any configuration on the inSentry II or the EMD. (See

Chapter 3.1.3 “Setting Access Control Table” and

Chapter 4.5.3 “Access Control” for details.)

6.2 Setting SNMP Trap Receiver

To configure the SNMP trap receiver setting, please access the inSentry II via web browser and go to the “System/ Trap

Receivers” page (see Chapter 4.6.3).

6.3 Setting up SNMP Manager Software

Follow the steps below to set up SNMP manager software:

1. Add the MIB file in the inSentry II CD-ROM to the MIB database of the SNMP manager.

2. Search for the inSentry II in the network.

3. To access the inSentry II SNMP agent, use ‘public’ for the

GET community string, and use the read/ write password

(default is admin) for the SET community string.

GET community string: public

SET community string: admin

For more information, please refer to the MIB file on the inSentry II CD-ROM.
