2: Introduction
The SecureBox SDS1101 is a single-port device server and the SDS2101 is a
dual port device server that provide a quick, simple, and cost-effective way to
bring the advantages of data accessibility and remote management to devices
not currently connected to a network.
Applications
The SDS family of Device Servers allows serial devices, such as those listed
below, to connect and communicate over Ethernet networks using the IP protocol
family (TCP for connection-oriented stream applications and UDP for datagram
applications).
The SDS1100/2101 Secure Device Server offers secure data communications
using Rijndael Advanced Encryption Standards (AES) and is certified by the
National Institute of Standard and Technology (NIST) to meet Federal
Information Processing Standards (FIPS) required for data communication on US
government and government contractor’s networks.


Data display devices

Virtually any asynchronous RS-232, RS422, or RS485 device
Application Examples
Using a method called serial tunneling, the SDS encapsulates serial data into
packets and transports them over Ethernet. Using two SDS units, connected by a
network, virtual serial connections can extend across a facility or around the
world.

2: Introduction
Protocol Support
The SDS uses the Internet Protocol (IP) for network communications and the
Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) to assure that no data is lost or duplicated
and that everything sent to the connection arrives correctly at the target.
Supported protocols include:

ARP, UDP, TCP, ICMP, Telnet, TFTP, AutoIP, DHCP, HTTP, and SNMP for
network communications.

TCP, UDP, and Telnet for connections to the serial port.

TFTP for firmware updates.

IP for addressing, routing, and data block handling over the network.

User Datagram Protocol (UDP) for typical datagram applications in which
devices interact with other devices without a point-to-point connection.
Additional Features
Modem Emulation In modem emulation mode, the SDS can replace dial-up
modems. The unit accepts modem AT commands on the serial port and then
establishes a network connection to the end device. This arrangement leverages
network connections and bandwidth to eliminate dedicated modems and phone
lines.
:
Built-in Web Server: The SDS includes a built-in web server for configuring the
unit and displaying operating and troubleshooting information on the attached
links to online support.
Configuration Methods
After installation, the SDS requires configuration. For the unit to operate correctly
on a network, it must have a unique IP address on the network. There are three
basic methods for logging into the SDS and assigning IP addresses and other
configurable settings:
DeviceInstaller: Configure the IP address and other network settings on the
SDS using a Graphical User Interface (GUI) on a PC attached to a network.
(See Assigning the IP Address: DeviceInstaller )
Web Manager: Through a web browser, configure the SDS settings using the
Lantronix Web Manager. (See 4: Configuration Using Web Manager.)
Serial and Telnet Ports: Use Setup Mode, a command line interface. There are
two approaches to accessing Setup Mode: making a Telnet connection to the
network port (9999) or connecting a terminal (or a PC running a terminal
emulation program) to the unit’s serial port. (See 5: Configuration via Telnet or
Serial Port (Setup Mode).

Required Information
Before configuring the SDS, have the following information available:
Hardware Address
Take note of the unit’s hardware address (also known as the Ethernet or MAC
address). It is on the product label in one of the following formats (see Product
Information Label).
Hardware Address: 00 – 80 - A3 - _____ - _____ - _____
Or
Hardware Address: 00 – 20 - 4a - _____ - _____ - _____
Note: Make note of the MAC address. It is needed to locate the SDS
module using DeviceInstaller.
IP Address
The SDS must have a unique IP address on your network. This address
references the specific unit. By default, the unit is DHCP-enabled and
automatically assigned an IP address on DHCP-enabled networks. If you are
assigning a static IP address, the systems administrator generally provides the IP
address, subnet mask, and gateway.
Note: The factory default IP address is 0.0.0.0 to enable AutoIP. When
the units boots, it sends a DHCP broadcast to try and get an IP address.
If it receives no reply from a DHCP server, the SDS tries BOOTP. If the
SDS does not receive a response from BOOTP, it reverts to an AutoIP
address.
DHCP, BOOTP, and
IP Address:
_______ - _______ - _______ - _______
Subnet Mask: _______ - _______ - _______ - _______
Gateway:
_______ - _______ - _______ - _______
You have several options for assigning an IP address and related network
settings to your unit. This chapter provides information about using the
DeviceInstaller (graphical user interface) and serial port login (command line
interface) methods.
Note: For information about other methods of assigning the IP address,
such as DHCP, AutoIP, ARP, and Telnet, see Alternative Ways to Assign
an IP AddressError! Reference source not found..

power. You can change the configuration at any time. The unit performs a reset
after the configuration has been changed and stored.
This chapter tells you how to access Setup Mode and the general procedure for
using it. To complete the configuration, continue with 6: Setup Mode: Server
Configuration, 7: Setup Mode: Channel Configuration, and 8: Setup Mode:
Advanced Settings.
Note: The menus in the configuration chapters show a typical device.
Your device may have different configuration options.
Accessing Setup Mode
Telnet Connection
To configure the unit over the network, establish a Telnet connection to port
9999.
Note: You can also use DeviceInstaller to access Telnet. Select the
device from the main window list, and click the Telnet Configuration tab.
Skip steps 1 and 2.
To establish a Telnet connection:
1. From the Windows Start menu, click Run and type the following command,
where x.x.x.x is the IP address, and 9999 is the unit’s fixed network
configuration port number:
Windows: telnet x.x.x.x 9999

IP Address
If DHCP is not used to assign IP addresses, enter the IP address manually. The
IP address must be set to a unique value in the network. Enter each octet and
press Enter between each section. The current value displays in parentheses.
IP Address : (000) (000) (000) (000) _
If DHCP is used, the third octet of the IP address sets the BootP/DHCP/AutoIP
options. The following table shows the bits you can manually configure to force
the SDS to disable AutoIP, DHCP, or BootP. To disable an option, set the
appropriate bit.

6: Setup Mode: Server Configuration
Set Gateway IP Address
The gateway address, or router, allows communication to other LAN segments.
The gateway address should be the IP address of the router connected to the
same LAN segment as the unit. The gateway address must be within the local
network. The default setting is N (No), meaning the gateway address has not
been set. To set the gateway address, type Y and enter the address.
Set Gateway IP Address (Y) ?
Gateway IP addr (000) (000) (000) (000)_
Netmask: Number of Bits for Host Part
A netmask defines the number of bits taken from the IP address that are
assigned for the host part.
Netmask: Number of Bits for Host Part (0=default) (0) _
Note: Class A: 24 bits; Class B: 16 bits; Class C: 8 bits
The unit prompts for the number of host bits to be entered, then calculates the
netmask, which appears in standard decimal-dot notation (for example,
255.255.255.0) when the saved parameters display. The default setting is 0.

Set DNS Server IP Address
The DNS server allows the name of a remote machine to be resolved
automatically. The default is N (No), indicating the DNS server address has not
been set. To set the DNS server address, type Y. At the prompt, enter the DNS
server address. If the device is DHCP enabled, the DHCP server provides the
DNS server IP address, which will override this configured value.
Note: This setting is applicable only in Manual Connection mode.

Change Telnet/Web Configuration Password
Setting the Telnet configuration password prevents unauthorized access to the
setup menu through a Telnet connection to port 9999 or through web pages.
Please protect your device from unauthorized access and follow the instructions
below:

Always select Y to enable Telnet/Web Manager password

Enable the enhanced password setting and create a strong 16-character
password. For details, see Security Settings (Option 6) on page 62.
Note: We do not recommend that you only use the 4-character basic
password as it does not offer sufficient security. Using no password is
very dangerous.
Figure 6-2. Change Telnet Configuration Password

DHCP Name
If a DHCP server has automatically assigned the IP address and network
settings, you can discover the unit by using the DeviceInstaller network search
feature or Monitor Mode (see 10: Monitor Mode).
Note: When you enter Monitor Mode from the serial port with network
connection enabled and issue the NC (Network Communication)
command, you see the unit’s IP configuration.
There are three methods for assigning DHCP names to the unit.

Default DHCP Name: If you do not change the DHCP name, and you are
using an IP of 0.0.0.0, then the DHCP name defaults to XX.XX.XX.XX
(XXXXXX is the last 6 digits of the MAC address shown on the label on the
bottom/side of the unit). For example, if the MAC address is 00-20-4A-12-3456, then the default DHCP name is C123456.

Custom DHCP Name: You can create your own DHCP name. If you are
using an IP address of 0.0.0.0, then the last option in Server configuration is
Change DHCP device name. This option allows you to change the DHCP
name to an alphanumeric name (LTX in our example).
Change DHCP device name (not set) ? (N) Y
Enter new DHCP device name : LTX

Numeric DHCP Name: You can change the DHCP name by specifying the
last octet of the IP address. When you use this method, the DHCP name is
LTXYY where YY is what you chose for the last octet of the IP address. If the
IP address you specify is 0.0.0.12, then the DHCP name is LTX12. This
method only works with 2 digit numbers (01-99).

Warning: We recommend that you not use the reserved port
numbers for this setting as incorrect operation may result.
Use Port 0 for the outgoing local port to change with each connection. The port
range is 50,000-59,999. Each subsequent connection increments the number by
1 (it wraps back around to 50,000).
Only use this automatic port increment feature to initiate a connection using TCP.
Set the port to a non-zero value when the unit is in a passive mode or when
using UDP instead of TCP.
Connect Mode
Connect Mode defines how the unit makes a connection, and how it reacts to
incoming connections over the network.

b) Response
Character Response
A single character is transmitted to the serial port when there is a
change in connection state:
C = connected, D = disconnected, N = host unreachable.
The IP address of the host connecting to the CoBos device will
be provided when you use verbose mode.
This option is overridden when the Active Start Modem Mode or
Active Start Host List is in effect. Default setting is Nothing
(quiet).
c) Active Startup
No Active Startup
Does not attempt to initiate a connection under any
circumstance. Default setting.
With Any Character
Attempts to connect when any character is received from the
serial port.
With active Modem
Control In
Attempts to connect when the active Modem Control In input
changes from not asserted to asserted.
With a Specific Start
Character
Attempts to connect when it receives a specific start character
from the serial port. The default start character is carriage return.
Manual Connection
Attempts to connect when directed by a command string
received from the serial port. The first character of the command
string must be a C (ASCII 0x43), and the last character must be
either a carriage return (ASCII 0x0D) or a line feed (0x0A). No
blanks or space characters may be in the command string.
Between the first and last command string characters must be a
full or partial destination IP address and may be a destination
port number.
The IP address must be in standard decimal-dot notation and
may be a partial address, representing the least significant 1, 2,
or 3 bytes of the remote IP address. The period is required
between each pair of IP address numbers.
If present, the port number must follow the IP address, must be
presented as a decimal number in the range 1-65535, and must
be preceded by a forward slash (ASCII 0x2F). The slash
separates the IP address and the port number. If you omit the
port number from a command string, the internally stored remote
port number starts a connection.
If a partial IP address is presented in a command string, it is
interpreted to be the least significant bytes of the IP address and
uses the internally stored remote IP address to provide the most
significant bytes of the IP address. If the IP address entered is
0.0.0.0/0, the device server enters Monitor Mode.
For example, if the remote IP address already configured in the
unit is 129.1.2.3, then an example command string would be
C3/7. (This would connect to 129.1.2.3 and port 7.) You may
also use a different ending for the connection string. For
example, C50.1/23 would connect you to 129.1.50.1 and port 23.
SecureBox® SDS1101/2101 Device Server User Guide
51
7: Setup Mode: Channel Configuration
If an IP address does not follow the first command string
character (which is "C"), the subsequent character string is
interpreted as the host name and domain to be used in DNS
lookup. This character string can include a destination port
number as well. The port number can be preceded by either a
forward slash (/) or a colon ( : ).

DNS server database.
Autostart (Automatic
Connection)
If you enable Autostart, the unit automatically connects to the
remote IP address and remote port specified when the firmware
starts.
Hostlist
If you enable this option, the device server scrolls through the
hostlist until it connects to a device listed in the hostlist table. Once
it connects, the unit stops trying to connect to any others. If this
connection fails, the unit continues to scroll through the table until it
is able to connect to another IP in the hostlist.
Hostlist supports a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 12 entries.
Each entry contains the IP address and the port number.
The hostlist is disabled for Manual and Modem Modes. The unit
does not accept a data connection from a remote device when the
hostlist option is enabled.

7: Setup Mode: Channel Configuration
To enable the hostlist:
1. Enter a Connect Mode of 0x20 (2X), where X is any digit. The menu shows
you a list of current entries already defined in the product.
2. To delete, modify, or add an entry, select Yes. If you enter an IP address of
0.0.0.0, that entry and all others after it are deleted.
3. After completing the hostlist, repeat the previous step if necessary to edit the
hostlist again.
4. For Retrycounter, enter the number of times the Lantronix unit should try to
make a good network connection to a hostlist entry that it has successfully
ARPed. The range is 1-15, with the default set to 3.
5. For Retrytimeout, enter the number of seconds the unit should wait before
failing an attempted connection. The time is stored as units of milliseconds in
the range of 10-65535. The default setting is 250.
d) Datagram Type
Directed UDP
When selecting this option, the prompt requests the Datagram type.
Enter 01 for directed or broadcast UDP. Datagrams of type 01 can be
sent as a broadcast by enabling the Send as Broadcast option. The
default is not to broadcast.
Note: Datagrams are sent as subnet-directed broadcasts.
When the UDP option is in effect, the unit never attempts to initiate a
TCP connection because it uses UDP datagrams to send and receive
data.
e) Modem Mode
In Modem (Emulation) Mode, the unit presents a modem interface to the
attached serial device. It accepts AT-style modem commands and handles the
modem signals correctly.
Normally, there is a modem connected to a local PC and a modem connected to
a remote machine. A user must dial from the local PC to the remote machine,
accumulating phone charges for each connection. Modem Mode allows you to
replace modems with SDSs, and to use an Ethernet connection instead of a
phone call. By not having to change communications applications, you avoid
potentially expensive phone calls.
To select Modem Mode, set the Connect Mode to C6 (no echo), D6 (echo with
full verbose), D7 (echo with numeric response), CF (modem responses only,
numeric response), or CE (modem responses only, full verbose).
Note: If the unit is in Modem Mode, and the serial port is idle, the unit can
still accept network TCP connections to the serial port if Connect Mode is
set to C6 (no echo), D6 (echo with full verbose), D7 (echo with numeric
response, CF (modem responses only, numeric response), or CE
(modem responses only, full verbose).

Without Echo
In Modem Mode, echo refers to the echo of all of the characters
entered in command mode; it does not mean to echo data that is
transferred. Quiet Mode (without echo) refers to the modem not
sending an answer to the commands received (or displaying what
was typed).

Error
Received commands must begin with the two-character sequence AT and be

The unit ignores any character sequence received not starting with AT, and only
recognizes and processes single AT-style commands. The unit treats compound
AT commands as unrecognized commands.
If the Full Verbose option is in effect, the unit responds to an unrecognized
command string that is otherwise formatted correctly (begins with AT and ends
with carriage return) with the "OK" message and takes no further action.
If the Numeric Response option is in effect, the unit responds to an
unrecognized command string that is otherwise formatted correctly with a "0"
message and takes no further action.
SecureBox® SDS1101/2101 Device Server User Guide

7: Setup Mode: Channel Configuration
When an active connection is in effect, the unit transfers data and does not
process commands received from the serial interface.
When a connection is terminated or lost, the unit reverts to command mode.
When an active connection is in effect, the unit terminates the connection if it
receives the following sequence from the attached serial device:

No serial data is received for one second.

The character sequence +++ is received, with no more than one second
between each two characters.

No serial data is received for one second after the last + character. At this
time, the unit responds affirmatively per the selected echo/response mode.

The character string ATH is received, terminated with a carriage return. The
unit responds affirmatively according to the selected echo/response mode
and drops the network connection. The serial interface reverts to accepting
command strings.
If this sequence is not followed, the unit remains in data transfer mode.

Alternate Packing Algorithm (Pack Control)

Pack Control
The packing algorithms define how and when packets are sent to the network.
The standard algorithm is optimized for applications in which the unit is used in a
local environment, allowing for very small delays for single characters, while
keeping the packet count low. The alternate packing algorithm minimizes the
packet count on the network and is especially useful in applications in a routed
Wide Area Network (WAN). Adjusting parameters in this mode can economize
the network data stream.
Pack control settings are enabled in Flush Mode. Set this value to 00 if you do
not need specific functions.
Note: All bit positions in the table that are blank represent “don’t care” bits
for that particular option, which can be set to either a 0 or 1 value.

Packing Interval
Packing Interval defines how long the unit should wait before sending
accumulated characters. This wait period is between successive network
segments containing data. For alternate packing, the default interval is 12 ms.
Trailing Characters
In some applications, CRC, Checksum, or other trailing characters follow the
end-of-sequence character; this option helps to adapt frame transmission to the
frame boundary. The default setting is 00 (none).
Send Characters

If 2-Byte Send Character Sequence is enabled, the unit interprets the
sendchars as a 2-byte sequence; if this option is not enabled, the unit
interprets them independently. The default setting is 0 (disabled).

If Send Immediately After Characters is not set, any characters already in
the serial buffer are included in the transmission after a "transmit" condition is
found. If this option is set, the unit sends immediately after recognizing the
transmit condition (sendchar or timeout). The default setting is 0.
Note: A transmission might occur if status information needs to be
exchanged or an acknowledgment needs to be sent.
DisConnTime (Inactivity Timeout)
Use this parameter to set an inactivity timeout. The unit drops the connection if
there is no activity on the serial line before the set time expires. Enter time in the
format mm:ss, where m is the number of minutes and s is the number of
seconds.
DisConnTime (00:00) ?:
SecureBox® SDS1101/2101 Device Server User Guide
60
7: Setup Mode: Channel Configuration
To disable the inactivity timeout, enter 00:00. Range is 0 (disabled) to 5999
seconds (99 minutes, 59 seconds). Default setting is 0.
Send Characters
Enter up to two characters in hexadecimal representation in sendchar.
SendChar 1 (00) ? _
SendChar 2 (00) ? _
If the unit receives a character on the serial line that matches one of these
characters, it sends the character immediately, along with any awaiting
characters, to the TCP connection. This action minimizes the response time for
specific protocol characters on the serial line (for example, ETX, EOT). Setting
the first sendchar to 00 disables the recognition of the characters. Alternatively,
the unit can interpret two characters as a sequence (see Pack Control). The
default setting is 00.
Telnet Terminal Type
This parameter displays only if you enabled the terminal type option in
Disconnect Mode. With this option enabled, you can use the terminal name for
the Telnet terminal type. Enter only one name.
With terminal type option enabled, the unit also reacts to the EOR (end of record)
and binary options, useful for applications like terminal emulation to IBM hosts.
Channel (Port) Password
This parameter appears only if the channel (port) password option is enabled in
Disconnect Mode. With this option enabled, you can set a password on the serial
port. The default setting is all 0s.

Encryption only applies to the port selected for data tunneling (default 10001),
regardless of whether you are using TCP or UDP.
Generally, one of these situations applies:

Encrypted SDS-to-SDS communication. Be sure to configure both SDS
devices with the same encryption key.

Third-party application to SDS-encrypted communication: SDS uses standard
AES encryption protocols. To communicate successfully, products and
applications on the peer side must use the same protocols and the same
encryption key as the SDS. Developers can license the Lantronix Encryption
Library suite.

Lantronix Secure Com Port Redirector provides an encrypted connection
from Windows-based applications to the SDS. A 30-day trial version of SCPR

A: Troubleshooting and Contact Information
This chapter discusses how you can diagnose and fix errors quickly without
having to contact a dealer or Lantronix. It helps to connect a terminal to the serial
port while diagnosing an error to view summary messages that may display.
When troubleshooting, always ensure that the physical connections (power
cable, network cable, and serial cable) are secure.
Note: Some unexplained errors might be caused by duplicate IP addresses on
the network. Make sure that your unit's IP address is unique.
When troubleshooting the following problems, make sure that the SDS is
powered up. Confirm that you are using a good network connection.

A: Troubleshooting and Contact Information
Problem/Message
Reason
Solution
When you issue the ARP –S
command in Windows, the "ARP
entry addition failed: 5" message
displays.
Your currently logged-in
user does not have the
correct rights to use this
command on this PC.
Have someone from your IT
department log you in with sufficient
rights.
When you attempt to assign an IP
address to the unit by the ARP
method, the "Press Enter to go into
Setup Mode" error "(described
below) message displays. Now
when you Telnet to the device
server, the connection fails.
When you Telnet to port 1
on the device server, you
are only assigning a
temporary IP address.
When you Telnet into port
9999 and do not press
Enter quickly, the device
server reboots, causing it
to lose the IP address.
Telnet back to Port 1. Wait for it to
fail, then Telnet to port 9999 again.
Make sure you press Enter quickly.
When you Telnet to port 9999, the
"Press Enter to go into Setup
Mode" message displays.
However, nothing happens when
you press Enter, or your
connection is closed.
You did not press Enter
quickly enough. You only
have 5 seconds to press
Enter before the
connection is closed.
Telnet to port 9999 again, but press
Enter as soon as you see the "Press
Enter to go into Setup Mode"
message.
When you Telnet to port 1 to
assign an IP address to the device
server, the Telnet window does not
respond for a long time.
You may have entered the
Ethernet address
incorrectly with the ARP
command.
Confirm that the Ethernet address
that you entered with the ARP
command is correct. The Ethernet
address may only include numbers
0-9 and letters A-F. In Windows and
usually in Unix, the segments of the
Ethernet address are separated by
dashes. In some forms of Unix, the
Ethernet address is segmented with
colons.
The IP address you are
trying to assign is not on
your logical subnet.
Confirm that your PC has an IP
address and that it is in the same
logical subnet that you are trying to
assign to the device server.
The device server may not
be plugged into the
network properly.
Make sure that the Link LED is lit. If
the Link LED is not lit, then the
device server is not properly plugged
into the network.
The cause is most likely
one of the following:
Double-check the parameters that
you specified.
The hardware address you
specified is incorrect.
Note: You cannot assign an IP
address to a device server through a
router.
When you try to assign an IP with
DeviceInstaller, you get the
following :
"No response from device!
Verify the IP, Hardware
Address and Network Class.
Please try again."
The IP address you are
trying to assign is not a
valid IP for your logical
subnet.
You did not choose the
correct subnet mask.

A: Troubleshooting and Contact Information
Problem/Message
Reason
Solution
The device server is not
communicating with the serial
device to which it is attached.
The most likely reason is
the wrong serial settings
were chosen.
The serial settings for the serial
device and the device server must
match. The default serial settings for
the device server are RS-232, 9600
baud, 8 character bits, no parity, 1
stop bit, no flow control.
When you try to enter the setup
mode on the device server using
the serial port, you get no
response.
The issue is most likely
something covered in the
previous problem, or
possibly, you have Caps
Lock on.
Double-check everything in the
problem above. Confirm that Caps
Lock is not on.
You can ping the device server,
but not Telnet to the device server
on port 9999.
There may be an IP
address conflict on your
network
Turn the device server off and then
issue the following commands at the
DOS prompt of your computer:
You are not Telneting to
port 9999.
ARP -D X.X.X.X (X.X.X.X is the IP of
the device server).
The Telnet configuration
port (9999) is disabled
within the device server
security settings.
PING X.X.X.X (X.X.X.X is the IP of
the device server).
If you get a response, then there is a
duplicate IP address on the network.
If you do not get a response, use the
serial port to verify that Telnet is not
disabled.
With DeviceInstaller, you get the
Wrong Password error when you
try to upgrade the firmware.
The file you are attempting
to load is the incorrect
firmware file for the SDS.
Download the correct firmware file
from the Lantronix website.
The device server appears to be
set up correctly, but you are not
communicating with your device
attached to the device server
across the network.
If you are sure that the
serial port setting is
correct, then you may not
be connecting to the
correct socket of the
device server.
On SDS1101 you can check to see
whether there is a socket connection
to or from the SDS by looking at the
Status LED.
Another possibility is that
the device server is not set
up correctly to make a
good socket connection to
the network.
When connecting to the Web
Manager within the device server,
the "No Connection With The
Device Server" message displays.
Your computer is not able
to connect to port 30718
(77FEh) on the device
server.
SecureBox® SDS1101/2101 Device Server User Guide
If the Status LED is blinking
consistently, then there is a good
socket connection.
If the Status LED is solid green, then
the socket connection does not exist.
Use the Connect Mode option C0 for
making a connection to the SDS
from the network. Use Connect
Mode option C1 or C5 for a
connection to the network from the
SDS.
Make sure that port 30718 (77FEh)
is not blocked with any router that
you are using on the network. Also,
make sure that port 77FEh is not
disabled within the Security settings
of the device server.

F: Alternative Ways to Assign an IP Address
Earlier chapters describe how to assign a static IP address using DeviceInstaller,
Web Manager, and Setup Mode (through a Telnet or serial connection). This
section covers other methods for assigning an IP address over the network.
DHCP
The unit ships with a default IP address of 0.0.0.0, which automatically enables
DHCP. If a DHCP server exists on the network, it provides the unit with an
IP address, gateway address, and subnet mask when the unit boots up.
You can use the DeviceInstaller software to search the network for the DHCPassigned IP address and add it to the list of devices retrieved.
Note: This DHCP address does not appear in the unit’s Setup Mode or in
Web Manager. You can determine your unit’s DHCP-assigned IP address
in Monitor Mode. When you enter Monitor Mode from the serial port with
network connection enabled and issue the NC (Network Communication)
command, you see the unit’s IP configuration.
AutoIP
The unit ships with a default IP address of 0.0.0.0, which automatically enables
Auto IP within the unit. AutoIP is an alternative to DHCP that allows hosts to
obtain an IP address automatically in smaller networks that may not have a
DHCP server. A range of IP addresses (from 169.254.0.1 to 169.254.255.1) has
been explicitly reserved for AutoIP-enabled devices. Do not use this range of
Auto IP addresses over the Internet.

If your unit cannot find a DHCP server, and you have not manually assigned
an IP address to it, the unit automatically selects an address from the AutoIP
reserved range. Then, your unit sends out a (ARP) request to other nodes on
the same network to see whether the selected address is being used.

If the selected address is not in use, then the unit uses it for local subnet
communication.

If another device is using the selected IP address, the unit selects another
address from the AutoIP range and reboots. After reboot, the unit sends out
another ARP request to see if the selected address is in use, and so on.
AutoIP does not replace DHCP. The unit continues to look for a DHCP server on
the network. If it finds a DHCP server, the unit switches to the DHCP serverprovided address and reboots.
Note: If a DHCP server is found, but it denies the request for an IP
address, the unit does not attach to the network, but waits and retries.
SecureBox® SDS1101/2101 Device Server User Guide
91
F: Alternative Ways to Assign an IP Address
AutoIP can be disabled by setting the unit’s IP address to 0.0.1.0. This setting
enables DHCP but disables AutoIP.
BOOTP
Similar to DHCP, but for smaller networks. Automatically assigns the IP address
for a specific duration of time.
ARP and Telnet
If the unit has no IP address, you can use Address Resolution Protocol (ARP)
method from UNIX and Windows-based systems to assign a temporary IP
address.
To assign a temporary IP address:
1. On a UNIX or Windows-based host, create an entry in the host's ARP
table using the intended IP address and the hardware address of the unit
(on the product label on the bottom of the unit).
arp -s 191.12.3.77 00:20:4a:xx:xx:xx (Unix)
arp -s 191.12.3.77 00-20-4a-xx-xx-xx (Windows)
Note: For the ARP command to work on Windows 95, the ARP
table on the PC must have at least one IP address defined other
than its own.
2. If you are using Windows 95, type ARP -A at the DOS command prompt
to verify that there is at least one entry in the ARP table. If the local
machine is the only entry, ping another IP address on your network to
build a new entry in the ARP table; the IP address must be a host other
than the machine on which you are working. Once there is at least one
additional entry in the ARP table, use the following command to ARP an
IP address to the unit:
arp -s 191.12.3.77 00-20-4a-xx-xx-xx
3. Open a Telnet connection to port 1. The connection fails quickly, but the
unit temporarily changes its IP address to the one designated in this step.
telnet 191.12.3.77 1
4. Open a Telnet connection to port 9999, and press Enter within five
seconds to go into Setup Mode. If you wait longer than five seconds, the
unit reboots.
telnet 191.12.3.77 9999
Note: The IP address you just set is temporary and reverts to the default
value when the unit’s power is reset, unless you configure the unit with a
static IP address and store the changes permanently.

G: Binary to Hexadecimal Conversions
Many of the unit’s configuration procedures require assembling a series of
options (represented as bits) into a complete command (represented as a byte).
Convert the resulting binary value to a hexadecimal representation.
Converting Binary to Hexadecimal
Following are two simple ways to convert binary numbers to hexadecimals.
Conversion Table
Hexadecimal digits have values ranging from 0 to F, which are represented as 09, A (for 10), B (for 11), etc. To convert a binary value (for example, 0100 1100)
to a hexadecimal representation, the upper and lower four bits are treated
separately, resulting in a two-digit hexadecimal number (in this case, 4C). Use
the following table to convert values from binary to hexadecimal.
