Chapter 3 Configuration
3.1 Configuration Connection
Before configuration, It’s necessary to connect the IP MODEM with the configure PC by the
shipped RS232 or RS232-485 conversion cable as following.
3.2 Configuration Introduction
There are two ways to configure the IP MODEM:
Configuration software tool: All the settings are configured through the shipped software tool.
It’s necessary to have one PC to run this tool.
Extended AT command: All the settings are configured through AT command, so any device
with serial port can configure it. Before configuration with extended AT command, you should
make IP MODEM enter configure state. The steps how to make IP MODEM enter configure
state, please refer to appendix.
The following describes how to configure IP MODEM with the configure software tool. At the
same time, it gives out the corresponding AT command of each configuration item.

3.3 Run the configure Tool: IP Modem Configure.exe
The “Serial Parameters” column shows the current serial port settings. To configure IP
MODEM, please choose the correct serial port which connects to IP MODEM, and the baud-rate
is 115200 with no parity, then open the serial port. If the button text is“Close”, it shows the serial
port now has been opened. If the text is “Open”, you should open the port first. When the port
opened, the “Output Info” column will display
“Port(COM1) Has Opened,Please Re-Power the IP MODEM,
Waiting IP MODEM Enter Configure State...”

3.4 Re-power IP MODEM
After Re-power IP MODEM, The configure tool will make it enter configure state. At the
same time, the software will load current settings from IP MODEM and displays on the right
configure columns. It’s now ready to configure.
3.5 Configuration
3.5.1 Data Service Center Settings
Settings on this page are the parameters related to Data Service Center (DSC).
◆Data Center Number
IP MODEM support two Data Service Center methods to transmit data.
Main and Backup: IP MODEM always tries to connect with the Main DSC. If fails to connect
with Main DSC, it will connect with Backup DSC at once
Note:If no Backup DSC exists, please configure the Backup DSC same as Main DSC.
Multi Data Service Center: IP MODEM can connect with at most five DSC at the same time.
All the multi DSC can receive the same application data .

If the Data Center Number is 0,there is no DSC working.
If the Data Center Number is 1, IP MODEM work in Main and Backup DSC method.
When “Data Center Number” is greater than 1, IP MODEM works in Multi Data Service Center
method
GPS data transmission DSC is self-governed. Setting details please reference the section 3.5.5.
AT command:
AT+SVRCNT=x
x: Data Service Center number
Note: every AT command is terminated with a enter character.
◆Main Center Addr+Port:
IP Address and Port of the Main DSC, It’s better to set the port greater than 1024.
AT command of the Main DSC IP address or domain name:
AT+IPAD=xxx
xxx: The IP address or domain name.

When “Data Center Number” is greater than 1, this setting is valid. For example,setting the
“Data Center Number” as 3, Main Center, 2nd Center, 3rd Center work as these three DSC
AT Command of the 2~5 DSC IP address or domain name

n is 1~4 correspond to center 2~5
xxx: The IP address or domain name
AT Command of the 2~5 DSC port
AT+PORTn=xxx
n is 1~4 correspond to port of center 2~5
xxx: The port value
Example:
Set IP address of center 3 as 166.111.8.238, and port 5001, the AT command is as following:
AT+IPAD2=166.111.8.238
AT+PORT2=5001
◆ Main and Backup Center DNS Server
When the DSC Internet access uses domain name, It’s necessary to set DNS server resolving the
DSC domain name. When the Data Center Number is 1, Main and Backup Center DNS Server is
used to resolve the Main center and Backup center correspondingly.
AT command of Main Center DNS server:
AT+DNSSVR=aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd
aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd: The DNS server IP address(must be IP address).

◆ Trigger Type
Normally, IP MODEM always keeps online and always be ready for data transmission. But in
some circumstances, it’s important to reduce wireless data flow. To realize this function, the
software can makes IP MODEM into sleep state in idle time. When there is application data to
transmit, IP MODEM can be triggered online ready for data transmission. There are total five
methods to make IP MODEM online:
AUTO: IP MODEM always keeps online
SMSD: send a special short message to make IP MODEM online
CTRL: make IP MODEM online through a phone call to IP MODEM
DATA: send special serial data to make IP MODEM online
MIXD: the combination of SMSD, CTRL, DATA. IP MODEM will be online when meet one of
these three trigger methods.
AT Command:
AT+ACTI=xxxx
xxxx: one of the above trigger methods
◆ Debug Level
Debug information is used to debug software when there is software problem.
0 --- no debug information output
1 --- simple prompt information output
2 --- detail debug information output
AT Command:
AT+DEBUG=x
x : the debug level value
Note: Only there is some problem to the IP MODEM, It’s necessary to set this value as 2, In
normal applications, this value should set to 0 or 1, the default value is 1.

Connect Retry Times, Reconnect Time Interval
In normal applications, IP MODEM will always try to connect with the center even if the center
has problems or closed. To reduce these unnecessary wireless data flow, you can configure the
“Connect Retry Times” and “Reconnect Time Interval” items. When IP MODEM fail to connect
to the center with the configured Retry Time, It will sleep “Reconnect Time Interval” time, then
start next retry.
