Over view and Setup
Congratulations on purchasing your ScreenBeam™ Central Management System (CMS). With this solution
Actiontec Electronics, Inc. provides a full set of tools to simplify the configuration and management of your
ScreenBeam receivers. We recommend reading through this section to familiarize yourself with the features
and benefits the ScreenBeam™ Central Management System has to offer.
1.1 Introduction
Actiontec’s ScreenBeam™ Central Management System (CMS) is a full-featured software utility to
remotely configure and manage a group of ScreenBeam wireless display receivers. After the initial
setup, the CMS utility will communicate over your network to each ScreenBeam receiver, allowing for
full control of each unit. This CMS utility will ease the burden of having to configure each ScreenBeam
receiver in your network individually.
DNS Discovery: Use your corporate DNS to automatically have each ScreenBeam Receiver connect to
your ScreenBeam CMS server.
UPnP Discovery: Discover all your local network receivers automatically by enabling UPnP. CMS will
automatically populate the Receiver list with all discovered ScreenBeam receivers in your network.
USB Configuration Tool: Easily generate the necessary configuration files to define receiver IP
parameters and the CMS server to connect to, then write to a flash drive. Plug the drive into the
ScreenBeam receiver and it will automatically configure itself to the values you set.
CMS Handoff: Seamlessly switch which CMS PC a receiver, or set of receivers, will connect to.
Remote Settings: Make parameters changes for one-to-many receivers from the CMS server remotely.
All the settings that are available for each receiver locally are also available through the CMS server.
Firmware Update: Update firmware for receivers in batch using the ScreenBeam CMS server.
Grouping: Organize receivers into group sets allowing you to easily select a particular set of receivers
for configuration and management.
Logging: Save receiver logs locally on the CMS server or to a remote FTP server. Logs can be updated
on a schedule that you define.
Reboot/Restore: Remotely reboot receivers or set them back to factory default.

Section 3
Discovering Receivers
The following section will help you discover and add ScreenBeam receivers to your CMS server. There are
three methods to discovering receivers: DNS Discovery, UPnP, or USB Drive method. DNS Discovery is the
recommended method, but requires a corporate DNS that you can manage. UPnP will work for receivers that
are in the same local network as your CMS server. Otherwise, you will have to use the USB method. We will
guide you through using each method below.
3.1 Setup Port Forwarding
You must set Port Forwarding on the router the Central Management Server is connected. The
following are generic steps for setting up port forwarding. Please refer to your router manual for
specific instructions.
1. Login to the router's management page.
Figure 3.1-1
2. Navigate to the Port Forwarding section.
3. Add an entry, with the server IP address set to the IP address of the computer running the ScreenBeam
CMS software. You will need forward both the CMS Server Port and the Log Server Port.
Figure 3.1-2
Note: The server must be assigned with a fixed IP address.
Note: For more information about the CMS server’s port number, refer to Section 1.4 - Installing
the Software.
ScreenBeam Central Management System
Page 37
3.2 DNS Discovery
The DNS Discovery method is the simplest way to have all your ScreenBeam receivers discovered by
the CMS server. It requires very little user interaction once your network is configured properly.
Note: You should carefully plan your network. In a DNS environment, changing IP address may take a
long time (hours to days) to take effect.
3.2.1 Configure DNS and DHCP Servers
ScreenBeam Pro Wireless Display Receiver supports DHCP Option 15. They can obtain domain information
from the DHCP server automatically.
1. Add a DNS record for the ScreenBeam CMS host to your corporate DNS server.
Figure 3.2-1
ScreenBeam Central Management System
Page 38
Figure 3.2-2
Note:


The default hostname for the CMS is “aeisbcms”. By default, ScreenBeam Pro Wireless Display
Receivers will resolve this hostname first.
ScreenBeam receivers can resolve a domain name with six labels at most.
If your ScreenBeam CMS hostname is too long or difficult to remember, you can add an alias name (CNAME)
for the ScreenBeam CMS host.
Figure 3.2-3
ScreenBeam Central Management System
Page 39
Figure 3.2-4
2. Configure the DHCP servers used to provision network addresses to the ScreenBeam receivers to assign
this DNS to its clients. Define the DNS server and the address pool.
Figure 3.2-5
3. Enable the Option 15 in the DHCP server, and define the domain that you use to manage the receivers.
ScreenBeam Central Management System
Page 40
Figure 3.2-6
Note: If Option 15 is not available on your DHCP server, neglect this step. In this case, you need to use
the Full Qualified Domain Name (FQDN).
3.2.2 Deploy the ScreenBeam Receivers
1. Launch the ScreenBeam CMS software.
2. Verify your ScreenBeam receivers are powered on and connected to your network through the USB-toEthernet adapter.
3. When the receivers are assigned an IP they will automatically connect to the CMS server. You should
see the ScreenBeam receivers appear listed on the Receiver Pane on the CMS software.
Figure 3.2-7
ScreenBeam Central Management System
Page 41
3.3 UPnP Discovery
UPnP may be the quickest method to discovering your ScreenBeam receivers. However, this method
will only work if the CMS server and your ScreenBeam receivers are all on the same local network. You
must first turn on UPnP in Windows and the routers before performing the UPnP discovery.
3.3.1 Turning on UPnP in Windows
1. In Windows open Control Panel, locate and select Network and Sharing Center

CMS server. Enter the IP address, or FQDN/hostname/domain name/alias name of the new CMS
server (if you have properly configured the DNS server and the DHCP server).
 CMS Port: Receivers communicate with the CMS through this port. Enter a port number for
communication with the CMS server.
5. The receivers will discover and report to the CMS server. This process may take several minutes. After
the receiver connects to the CMS server, its state changes to “Connected to CMS: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx”, which
is displayed on the HDTV.
Note: You must enable the SSDP Discovery service in the operating system for this feature to work properly. See
Section 1.3 – Preparing the System for details.

Section 6
Updating Receiver Firmware
The ScreenBeam Central Management System allows you to upgrade the firmware for multiple receivers from
a single location. This feature requires you to host the firmware image file on a web server, as we will
describe below. Once hosted, each receiver will download the image and perform the update without
requiring any user interaction.
6.1 Firmware Update Server
An HTTP server is required for performing firmware updates. This can be any HTTP server that is
accessible by the network that your ScreenBeam receivers are connected to. The firmware image files,
and also the screensaver/background image files, will reside in this server. Below are some notes
regarding setting up your HTTP server:
1. If you are setting up your own HTTP server, we suggest using a fixed IP address. This IP will be required
for entering into the URL if the receivers are not connected to a DNS server.
2. Copy the firmware image file to a folder in your server. DO NOT rename the firmware image files. They
should remain named install.img.
Note: The firmware file is in the “.img” format. You must enable support for the “.img” on your
web server.
Note: If you would like to maintain multiple firmware image files, we suggest putting them into
separate folders.
3. If the server resides behind a firewall, make sure to forward all the necessary ports required to get HTTP
access to the server.
Note: You may setup the HTTP server on the same system running the CMS software. However,
you may still have to open ports on your firewall so that the ScreenBeam receivers can
access both the CMS software and the HTTP files.
6.2 Update the Receiver Firmware
The following section will guide you to updating the firmware for one or more receivers. Updating can
take up to 20 or more minutes, depending on network bandwidth. It is suggested to perform updates
during off hours.
Note: Perform updates in smaller groups of receivers, so as not to saturate the network.
1. Launch the CMS software and go to the Policy tab.

Troubleshooting
If your ScreenBeam Central Management System experiences problems, you may be able to resolve it with
some help from the commonly encountered problems and their solutions as outlined in the table below.
Problem
My ScreenBeam Receiver is not
connecting to the CMS server.
I have started the UPnP discovery
in ScreenBeam CMS, but no
receiver is discovered.
Cause
Solution
The receiver does not have
an IP address
Check if the receiver is assigned with an IP address. You can
check this in the lower right corner. If you see "Ethernet IP:
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx", your receiver is assigned an IP address. If no
"Ethernet IP" is displayed, the receiver is not assigned an IP
address. Then, you should check the router, cable connection,
and/or USB-to-Ethernet adapter.
The receiver has not been
configured with the proper
CMS parameters.
Check if the receiver is provisioned with the CMS server's IP
address and port number. By default, the receiver is set to
connect to the CMS through the domain name
"server.aeisbcms.com". You can check this in the lower right
corner. You should see "Connected to MGT:
server.aeisbcms.com"/"Disconnected from MGT:
server.aeisbcms.com". If you have set the receiver to connect to
the CMS through the server's IP address, you should see
"Connected to MGT: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx"/"Disconnected from MGT:
xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx". Then you should check if this IP address is the
IP address of the CMS server. If not, you must correct it. If no
“Disconnected” or “Connected” message is displayed, you
should check the router, cable connection, and/or USB-toEthernet adapter.
Corporate DNS server has
not been configured.
Check if the domain name "server.aeisbcms.com" is added to
the DNS server if you have deployed a DNS server. The domain
name "server.aeisbcms.com" must pair with the IP address of
the CMS server.
Port forwarding not setup
properly.
Check if you have properly configured port forwarding for the
CMS server. Access the configuration page of the router that the
CMS server connects to, and check the port forwarding page.
UPnP is not properly enabled
or SSDP service is not
started.
Check if UPnP is enabled in Windows. If not, enable UPnP in
Windows. Refer to Section 3.3.1 for details.
Check if the SSDP Discovery service is started. If not, start the
SSDP Discovery service. Refer to Section 1.3 for detail.
Check if UPnP is enabled on your router. If not, enable UPnP in
ScreenBeam Central Management System
Page 99
Problem
Cause
Solution
the router. Refer to Section 3.3.2 for details.
Port forwarding needs to be
configured.
Probably, port forwarding is not correctly configured for the
CMS. Check the port forwarding on the connected router. And
configure it correctly.
My CMS does not respond or
becomes slow to react when
many receivers are being
connected simultaneously.
CMS server system specs not
powerful enough.
The CMS requires a lot of computer resources to process
information of simultaneous connections to many receivers,
which cause the CMS to react slowly. This is especially obvious
for a computer with less powerful hardware configuration. You
can upgrade your computer to improve this. For example, you
may expand the capacity of RAM, and/or upgrade the CPU.
We don't have a DNS server. Can
we use the CMS?
DNS Discovery is not
mandatory. Use UPnP or
USB Discovery methods.
You can provision receivers with the IP address and port
number of the CMS through a USB flash drive, or use the UPnP
function to discover receivers.
Why the receiver is still online
after I have pulled the Ethernet
cable out?
The SBCMS sends keep-alive
packets to the receiver every
15 seconds. And the SBCMS
determines that the receiver
is offline when the receiver
fails to respond for three
times.
You can see the receiver offline about 50 seconds after you
have pulled the Ethernet cable out.
Some receivers can connect to
the CMS server, but some cannot.

Configure Actiontec Receiver using a USB Flash
Drive
Follow the procedure below to configure the receiver using a USB flash drive:
1. Prepare a USB flash drive, and create a file folder named "aei_config" in the root directory of the drive.
2. Create a file named "aei_config.conf" in the "aei_config" file folder.
3. Edit the "aei_config.conf" file. The format of the content is <VARIABLE>=<VALUE>. For example,
aei_config_RandomNum=12345678. Separate two command lines with a newline character.
4. After the three steps above are completed, insert the USB flash drive to the receiver (the receiver is
standby), and the receiver will configure itself automatically.
Note that you must change the value of "aei_config_RandomNum" each time you want to configure the same
receiver.
