Configuration Methods
After installation, the PremierWave 2050 gateway requires configuration. For the unit to operate
correctly on a network, it must have a unique IP address on the network. There are four basic
methods for logging into the PremierWave 2050 gateway and assigning IP addresses and other
configurable settings:

Web Manager: View and configure all settings easily through a web browser using the
Lantronix Web Manager. See Chapter 4: Configuration Using Web Manager.

DeviceInstaller: Configure the IP address and related settings and view current settings on
the PremierWave 2050 gateway using a Graphical User Interface (GUI) on a PC attached to a
network. You will need the latest version of the Lantronix® DeviceInstaller™ utility.
See Chapter 3: Using DeviceInstaller.

Command Mode: Two methods for accessing Command Mode (CLI) include making a Telnet
or SSH connection, or connecting a PC or other host running a terminal emulation program to
the unit’s serial port. See the PremierWave 2050 802.11ac Embedded Wi-Fi Gateway
Command Reference for instructions and available commands.

XML: The PremierWave 2050 gateway supports XML-based configuration and setup records
that make PremierWave 2050 gateway configuration transparent to users and administrators.
XML is easily editable with a standard text or XML editor. See the PremierWave 2050

Addresses and Port Numbers
Hardware Address
The hardware address is also referred to as the Ethernet address, physical address, or MAC
address. The first three bytes of the Ethernet address are fixed and identify the unit as a Lantronix
product. The fourth, fifth, and sixth bytes are unique numbers assigned to each unit.
Sample ways hardware address may be represented:

00-80-A3-14-1B-18

00:80:A3:14:1B:18
IP Address
Every PremierWave 2050 gateway connected to an IP network must have a unique IPv4 address.
This address references the specific unit.
Port Numbers
Every TCP connection and every UDP datagram is defined by a destination and source IP
address, and a destination and source port number. For example, a Telnet server commonly uses
TCP port number 23.
The following is a list of the default server port numbers running on the PremierWave 2050
gateway:

TCP Port 22: SSH Server (Command Mode configuration)

TCP Port 23: Telnet Server (Command Mode configuration)

Bridge
The PremierWave 2050 gateway bridges traffic between an Ethernet and WLAN interface. For
example, br0 is a bridge between eth0 and wlan0. For USB RNDIS interface, USB 1 must be
configured as an Ethernet PremierWave 2050 gateway.
When a bridge is enabled, the Wired (eth0) Network configuration is used for configuring direct
connections into the PremierWave 2050 gateway over the primary interface; the Wireless (wlan0)
Network configuration is ignored. Both the Ethernet and WLAN link configurations are used the
same as when the bridge is disabled.
Bridging MAC Address specifies the MAC address of bridgeable traffic between the Ethernet and
WLAN interfaces. When bridging is active, this MAC Address will be used as the MAC address of
the WLAN interface. Packets received on the Ethernet interface from this address will be bridged
to the WLAN interface (except traffic directed at the Primary Interface). If this field is not
configured, then the PremierWave 2050 gateway waits for the first packet to arrive on the Ethernet
interface and uses the source address as the bridging address.
Bridging IP Address specifies the IP address of the bridged client.
When bridging is active, this IP Address will be used to create a static route between this
PremierWave 2050 gateway and the bridged client.
This route is required for connecting to the bridged client from PremierWave 2050 gateways
connected via the access point network and from this PremierWave 2050 gateway.
If Auto Detect IP Address is enabled, then the PremierWave 2050 gateway will attempt to learn the
IP Address by using the source or destination IP address of packets arriving on the Ethernet
interface.
Warning:
Enabling Auto Detect IP Address may affect the performance of running
processes during the learning phase.
During initialization, the bridging subsystem enables and controls both eth0 and wlan0 networks.
These are important aspects to keep in mind:

If the eth0 physical link is inactive, wlan0 is the primary interface.

If the eth0 physical link is active, eth0 is the primary interface.
When the eth0 link is active, the wlan0 link is established. Additionally, the bridging MAC address
is acquired using preconfiguration or auto-detection, and bridging enters the Active state. If either
link goes down, bridging reverts to the Inactive state.
When in the Active state, all packets that arrive on the wlan0 interface are bridged out (through)
the eth0 interface. Similarly, all packets that arrive on the eth0 interface are bridged out (through)
the wlan0 interface. However, exceptions to this behavior include:

Ethernet packets directed specifically to the Ethernet (eth0) MAC address are terminated
internally and are not bridged to WLAN.

An ARP request for the primary interface IP address is terminated internally and is not bridged
to the WLAN.
Ethernet packets that do not originate from the bridging MAC Address are discarded.

In Transparent Mode when Network Access for Gateway is enabled, the
PremierWave 2050 gateway will share the MAC address and Ethernet IP
address of the bridged client. WLAN Network Interface Configuration must
match the bridged client Ethernet configuration. Local ports must be
configured to distinguish network traffic destined for the PremierWave 2050
gateway. Any port configured on the PremierWave 2050 gateway must be
different from those in use by services on the bridged client.
Ethernet Interface
Select interface from drop-down menu:

Bridging MAC Address
Enter the bridging MAC address which specifies the MAC address of
bridgeable traffic between the Ethernet and WLAN interfaces. When bridging
is active, this MAC Address will be used as the MAC address of the WLAN
interface. Packets received on the Ethernet interface from this address will be
bridged to the WLAN interface (except traffic directed at the primary
interface). If this field is not configured, then the PremierWave 2050 gateway
waits for the first packet to arrive on the Ethernet interface and uses the
source address as the bridging address.
Bridging IP Address
Enter the bridging IP address which specifies the IP address of the bridged
client. When bridging is active, this IP address will be used to create a static
route between this PremierWave 2050 gateway and the bridged client. This
route is required for connecting to the bridged client from PremierWave 2050
gateways connected via the access point network and from this PremierWave
2050 gateway.

Wired (eth0) QoS Statistics and Configuration
QoS (Quality of Service) can be enabled and configured for both the Wireless (wlan0) Network
and wired Network (eth0). If enabled, the router will control the flow of outbound traffic according to
the user-defined filters. In other words, QoS improves performance by allowing the user to
prioritize applications. Filters can be defined to prioritize traffic based on the source or destination
network, source or destination port, or the source MAC address. Up to 32 user-defined filters can
be added. The following are predefined priority classes:

Network Control and Internetwork Control are typically used for network control packets such
as ICMP and have the highest priorities.

Move bandwidth allocation is a minimum 5% each to Network control.

Voice: Bandwidth allocation is minimum 30%.

Wireless (wlan0) Network Failover
The PremierWave 2050 gateway provides wlan0 failover, in the form of a "dead remote host
reachability" mechanism (essentially a ping against a known host). If the remote host is
determined to be not reachable, the PremierWave 2050 gateway will failover to the Ethernet
interface. If the remote host is determined to be reachable, the PremierWave 2050 gateway will
failback to the Wi-Fi interface.

QoS Statistics and Configuration
QoS (Quality of Service) can be enabled and configured for both the Wireless (wlan0) Network
and wired Wireless Network (usb0). If enabled, the router will control the flow of outbound traffic
according towthe user-defined filters. In other words, QoS improves performance by allowing the
user to prioritize applications. Filters can be defined to prioritize traffic based on the source or
destination network, source or destination port, or the source MAC address. Up to 32 user-defined
filters can be added. The following are predefined priority classes:

Network Control and Internetwork Control are typically used for network control packets such
as ICMP and have the highest priorities.

Move bandwidth allocation is a minimum 5% each to Network control.

Select None to not select a security suite.
WEP
WEP security is available in Infrastructure mode. WEP is a simple and
efficient security mode, encrypting the data using the RC4 algorithm.
However, WEP has become more vulnerable due to advances in hacking
technology. State-of-the-art equipment can find WEP keys in 5 minutes.
For stronger security, use WPA, or the stronger WPA2, with AES (CCMP).
WPA2/WPA Mixed Mode
If WEP security suite is selected, select one of these authentication
options which appear.


Shared: Encryption keys of both parties are compared as a form of
authentication. If mismatches occur, no connection establishes.
Open: A connection establishes without first checking for matching
encryption keys. If keys do not match, however, data becomes garbled
and prevents connectivity on the IP level.
If WPA or WPA2/IEEE 802.11i security suite is selected, select one of
these authentication options which appear:


PMF
PSK: In pre-shared keying, the same key must be configured both on the
PremierWave 2050 side and on the access point side.
IEEE 802.1X: This authentication method communicates with a RADIUS
authentication server that is part of the network. The RADIUS server
matches the credentials sent by the PremierWave 2050 gateway with an
internal database. If IEEE 802.1X is selected under authentication type,
select the protocol to use to authenticate the WLAN client.

Python
Python™ is a dynamic, object-oriented programming language that can be used for developing a
wide range of software applications. The Lantronix PremierWave 2050 gateway includes the
installation of Python interpreter, making it easy to load and run custom Python scripts on your
device.
PremierWave® 2050 802.11ac Embedded Wi-Fi® Gateway User Guide
72
8: Administration
The version of Python programming language installed on the Lantronix PremierWave 2050
gateway comes with "batteries included" by having the Python language's standard library. In
addition, the developer can take advantage of thousands of available third party packages to
speed up development.
IDE
Python scripts can be written with any text editor. If using Windows for development, Notepad++ is
a powerful choice as this text editor includes traditional IDE features such as syntax highlighting
and automatic indentation (http://notepad-plus-plus.org/). Notepad++ also includes the ability to
customize through plugins. Some interesting plugins for the development of Python scripts for the
Lantronix PremierWave 2050 platform include the following:

PyNPP: https://github.com/mpcabd/PyNPP
This plugin allows the user to use keystrokes to launch the open Python script in the local
Python interpreter for debugging and testing.

NppFTP: http://sourceforge.net/projects/nppftp/
This plugin provides a one-click upload of a file to an FTP server. Debugging and testing on
the PremierWave 2050 gateway easier because PremierWave 2050 products have an FTP
server through which to upload files into the file system.
Applications
The PremierWave 2050 gateway supports the ability to install and uninstall user-defined Python
scripts and packages and will include the following:

Port Forwarding
Port forwarding allows remote computers (for example, computers on the Internet) to connect to a
specific computer or service within a private local-area network (LAN). Port Forwarding rules
apply to inbound traffic and will not work if the PremierWave 2050 gateway is not reachable or
traffic to certain ports is blocked before it reaches the gateway.
If traffic is going through firewalls, all referenced ports on the gateway and LAN devices must be
accessible.

Routing Protocols
The PremierWave 2050 gateway allows the configuration of routing protocols. Routing protocols
specify how routers communicate with each other, disseminating information that enables the
selection of routes between any two nodes on a computer network. Routing algorithms determine
the specific choice of route. Each router has a prior knowledge of networks directly attached to it. A
routing protocol shares this information among immediate neighbors first, then through the
network. This way, routers gain knowledge of the topology of the network. The PremierWave 2050
supports RIP and OSPF protocols.

the Timeout Interval, the routes are no longer valid, however, they are
retained in the routing table for a short time so that neighbors can be notified
that the route has been dropped.
GC Interval
Indicate the number of seconds for the GC Interval. Upon expiration of the
GC Interval, the routes are finally removed from the routing table.

SSH
SSH is a network protocol for securely accessing a remote device over an encrypted channel. This
protocol manages the security of internet data transmission between two hosts over a network by
providing encryption, authentication, and message integrity services.
Configuration is required when the PremierWave 2050 gateway is either (1) the SSH server or (2)
an SSH client.. The SSH server is used by the CLI (Command Mode) and for tunneling in Accept
Mode. The SSH client is for tunneling in Connect Mode.
To configure the PremierWave 2050 as an SSH server, there are two requirements:

Defined Host Keys: both private and public keys are required. These keys are used for the
Diffie-Hellman key exchange (used for the underlying encryption protocol).

Defined Users: these users are permitted to connect to the PremierWave 2050 SSH server.
SSH Server: Host Keys
The SSH Server Host Keys are used by all applications that play the role of an SSH Server during
Tunneling in Accept Mode. These keys can be created elsewhere and uploaded to the device or
automatically generated on the gateway.
If uploading existing keys, take care to ensure the Private Key will not be compromised in transit.
This implies the data is uploaded over some kind of secure private network.
Note:
Some SSH Clients require RSA Host Keys to be at least 1024 bits in size.

The SSH Server Authorized Users are used by all applications that play the role of an SSH Server
and specifically Tunneling in Accept Mode. Every user account must have a Password.
The user's Public Keys are optional and only necessary if public key authentication is wanted.
Using public key authentication will allow a connection to be made without the password being
asked at that time.
Note: When uploading the security keys, ensure the keys are not compromised in
transit.

SSH Client: Users
The SSH Client Users are used by all applications that play the role of an SSH Client during
Tunneling in Connect Mode. To configure the PremierWave 2050 as an SSH client, an SSH client
user must be both configured and also exist on the remote SSH server.
At the very least, a Password or Key Pair must be configured for a user. The keys for public key
authentication can be created elsewhere and uploaded to the gateway or automatically generated
on the gateway.
If uploading existing Keys, take care to ensure the Private Key will not be compromised in transit.
This implies the data is uploaded over some kind of secure private network.
The default Remote Command is '<Default login shell>' which tells the SSH Server to execute a
remote shell upon connection. This can be changed to anything the SSH Server on the remote
host can execute.
Note: If you are providing a key by uploading a file, make sure that the key is not

CSR (Certificate Signing Request)
The PremierWave 2050 gateway uses the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol for any encrypted
network traffic between itself and a connected client. During the connection establishment the
PremierWave 2050 gateway has to expose its identity to a client using a cryptographic certificate.
Upon leaving the factory this certificate and the underlying secret key is the same for all
PremierWave 2050 gateways and will not match the network configuration where it is installed.
The certificate’s underlying secret key is also used for securing the SSL handshake. Leaving the
default certificate unmodified is all right in most circumstances and is necessary only if the network
facility is vulnerable to man-in-the-middle attack.
It is possible to generate and install a new base64 encoded x.509 certificate that is unique for a
particular PremierWave 2050 gateway. The PremierWave 2050 gateway is able to generate a new
cryptographic key and the associated Certificate Signing Request (CSR) that needs to be certified
by a certification authority (CA).
To create and install an SSL certificate, perform the following steps.
1. On the Administration page, click SSL > CSR (Certificate Signing Request). The
Certificate Signing Request page displays.
2. Modify the following fields:

Accept Mode
In Accept Mode, the PremierWave 2050 listens (waits) for incoming connections from the network.
A remote node on the network initiates the connection. The configurable local port is the port the
remote device connects to for this connection.There is no remote port or address. Supported serial
lines and associated local port numbers progress sequentially in matching value. For instance, the
default local port is 10001 for serial line 1 and the default local port for serial line 2 is 10002, and so
on for the number of serial lines supported. Serial data can still be received while waiting for a
network connection, keeping in mind serial data buffer limitations.

Connect Mode
In Connect Mode, the PremierWave 2050 continues to attempt an outgoing connection on the
network, until established (based on which connection method is selected in the configuration
described in Table 8-52). If the connection attempt fails or the connection drops, then it retries
after a timeout. The remote node on the network must listen for the Connect Mode’s connection.
For Connect Mode to function, it must be enabled, have a remote station (node) configured, and a
remote port configured (TCP or UDP). When established, Connect Mode is always on. Enter the
remote station as an IPv4 or IPv6 address or DNS name. The PremierWave 2050 will not make a
connection unless it can resolve the address. For Connect Mode using UDP, the PremierWave
2050 accepts packets from any device on the network. It will send packets to the last device that
sent it packets.
Note: The port in Connect Mode is not the same port configured in Accept Mode. Telnet
protocol is not supported in Tunnels on USB interfaces. The TCP keepalive time is the
time in which probes are periodically sent to the other end of the connection. This ensures
the other side is still connected.

sent, then at the interval where the next probe would normally be sent, the connection
will be reset, with no additional probes sent. Also note that in these cases: if the keep
alive timer is significantly smaller than the user timeout, probes will continue to be sent
for an unreachable host until the user timeout expires.

If there is data in flight when the TCP retransmission timeout kicks in, the user timeout
is checked as a limiting condition only when the timer expirations would normally be
checked during RTO handling. In other words, the user timeout will not be an exact
limit; in practice, it will always take somewhat longer for the connection to be closed.
The longer the user timeout is, the more likely it will expire between exponentially
slower retransmissions, and the connection will not experience an error until the next
retransmission timeout is checked. Also note that the user timeout expiration during
retransmission returns an error to the application; it does not automatically reset the
connection as happens with keep alive timeout. It is up to the application (e.g.,
tunneling) to close the connection (this happens almost immediately with tunneling).
To Configure Tunnel Connect Mode Settings


To configure the Connect Mode for a specific tunnel, on the Administration page, click
Tunnel > Tunnel 1 > Connect Mode.
Using the CLI

To enter the Tunnel 1 Connect Mode command level: enable > tunnel 1 > connect
Using XML

Include in your file: <configgroup name="tunnel connect" instance="1">
Connecting Multiple Hosts
If more than one host is configured, a Host Mode option appears. Host Mode controls how
multiple hosts will be accessed. For the PremierWave 2050, the Connect Mode supports up to 32
hosts. Hosts may be accessed sequentially or simultaneously:

Sequential – Sequential host lists establish a prioritized list of tunnels. The host specified as
Host 1 will be attempted first. If that fails, it will proceed to Host 2, 3, etc, in the order they are
specified. When a connection drops, the cycle starts again with Host 1 and proceeds in order.
Establishing the host order is accomplished with host list promotion (see Host List Promotion
on page 120). Sequential is the default Host Mode.

Simultaneous – A tunnel will connect to all hosts accepting a connection. Simultaneous
connections occur at the same time to all listed hosts. The PremierWave 2050 gateway can
support a maximum of 64 total aggregate connections.
Host List Promotion
This feature allows Host IP promotion of individual hosts in the overall sequence.
To promote a specific Host:
1. Click the
icon in the desired Host field, for example Host 2 and Host 3.
2. The selected Host(s) exchanges its place with the Host above it.
3. Click Submit. The hosts change sequence.

Disconnect Mode
Specifies the optional conditions for disconnecting any Accept Mode or Connect Mode connection
that may be established. If any of these conditions are selected but do not occur and the network
disconnects from the gateway, a Connect Mode connection will attempt to reconnect. However, if
none of these conditions are selected, a closure from the network is taken as a disconnected host.
The PremierWave 2050 gateway can support a maximum of 64 total aggregate connections.
