interface. However, the Console UI provides only basic system configuration and Status. For
advanced function, please use the Web Configuration.
3-1 Console Configuration
To access the IAC4000 User Interface, the administrator needs to connect a VT100 terminal
and a PC running a VT100 compatible terminal emulation program to the IAC4000 Console
port by using the provided DB9 RS-232 cable.
Follow these steps to set up your first local serial console port session using the Window98/2K
Terminal emulation program HyperTerminal.
1. From the Windows screen, click on the Start button.
2. From the Start menu, choose "Programs" (or Open file Hypertrm.exe).
3. From the Programs menu, choose "Accessories"
4. From the Accessories menu, select the HyperTerminal folder. Click on the HyperTerminal
icon.
5. From the connection Description windows, enter a name (i.e., IAC4000) and choose an
icon for the connection. Click "OK".
6. When the Phone Number window opens, click on the "Cancel" button.
7. From the File menu, choose "Properties".
8. From the Properties windows, click on the "Configure" button.
9. From the COM1 Properties windows, set the following parameters:
Baud Rate:
9600
Date bits:
8
Parity Checking:
None
Stop bits:
1
Flow control:
None
10. If you intend to use this PC and serial connection in the future save this configuration by
selecting "Files/Save As" and entering the name of the file for this configuration.
11. Once you have completed configuring your serial terminal, use the following steps to
logon to your IAC4000. If you have not already done so, use a male-female DB-9 serial
communication cable to connect the COM port on your PC to the Console port on the
front of the IAC4000.

Appendix B. Use RADIUS server to setup your Internet
Service
IAC4000 supports Remote Authentication Dial-In user Service (RADIUS). RADIUS is an
authentication and accounting system used by many Internet Service Providers. By integrating
RADIUS with the IAC4000, service provider could store in the RADIUS database the valid
usage time each subscriber is allocated. For example, when subscriber logs in, the RADIUS
server will send the IAC4000 the usage time parameters (session time-out) and IAC4000 will
obey them to control the connection from subscribers.
IAC4000's RADIUS functionality also includes an accounting feature that allows the IAC4000
to post "accounting start" and "accounting stop" records to RADIUS server. Service provider
can use these records to accurately track the usage on their network.
IAC4000 provides two accounting types to service providers. "Accumulate" and "Time to
finish".
YML728Rev1
www.netcomm.com.au
IAC4000 - Internet Access Controller User Guide
131
Accumulate
Case 1: RADIUS Server will reply "Session time-out" attribute
Service providers create a subscriber account with a "session timeout" parameter. For example,
"Session Timeout"=2 hours account was created and assign to subscriber. When subscriber
login, system will send an "Access Request" attribute to Radius Server, if subscriber's account
is a valid account, Radius Server will reply "Access Accept" with "session timeout". System
will send a "logout Window" include logout button and countdown time start from 2:00:00 to
subscriber's browser. Now subscriber could use the service for 2 hours, after 2 hours system
will disconnect subscriber's connection automatically. However, if after login 30 minutes
subscriber press logout button, system will terminate the connection with subscriber and send
"Accounting Stop" include used time=1800 sec. to Radius Server. For next time subscriber
login, an "Information Window" include logout button and countdown time start from 1:30:00
will appear again.

Case 2: RADIUS Server do not reply "Session timeout" attribute
Service providers create a subscriber account without a "session timeout" parameter. When
subscriber logs in, system will send an "Access Request" attribute to Radius Server, if
subscriber's account is a valid account, RADIUS Server will reply "Access Accept" but no
"session timeout". System will send a "logout Window" include logout button and connect
time start from 0:00:00 to subscriber's browser. Now subscriber could use the service until his
click logout button. When subscriber press logout button, system will terminate the connection
with subscriber and send "Accounting Stop" include used time for example 1800 sec. to
RADIUS Server. RADIUS Server will use these records to accurately track the usage on their
network.

Time to Finish
Service providers create a subscriber account with a "session timeout" parameter. For example,
"Session Timeout"=2 hours account was created and assign to subscriber. When subscriber
login, system will send an "Access Request" attribute to RADIUS Server, if subscriber's
account is a valid account, RADIUS Server will reply "Access Accept" with "session timeout".
System will send a "logout Window" only has countdown time start from 2:00:00 but no
Logout Button to subscriber's browser. Now subscriber could use the service for 2 hours, after
2 hours system will disconnect subscriber's connection automatically. However, subscriber is
not allowed to logout manually. When system terminate the connection with subscriber at the
same time it will send "Accounting Stop" include used time=7200 sec. to Radius Server. This is
to say that this account only allowed for one time use.
Note:
If "Time to finish" is selected, but RADIUS Server do not reply "Session
Timeout", an error message "No Session Time out" will pop up on subscriber's
browser.

Appendix C. Ethernet Cable Connections
This cable information is provided for your reference only. Please ensure you only connect the
appropriate cable into the correct socket on either this product or your computer.
If you are unsure about which cable to use or which socket to connect it to, please refer to the hardware
installation section in this manual. If you are still not sure about cable connections, please contact a
professional computer technician or NetComm for further advice.
RJ-45 Ethernet Network Ports
RJ-45 Network Ports can connect any networking devices that use a standard LAN interface, such as a
Hub/Switch Hub or Router. Use unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) or shield twisted-pair (STP) cable to
connect the networking device to the RJ-45 Ethernet port. Depending on the type of connection, 10Mbps
or 100Mbps, use the following Ethernet cable, as prescribed.

Category 5 or better, UTP or STP

Twisted-pair cabling comes in various grades, or categories. Category 5 is required for Fast
Ethernet, and is also the most reliable and most commonly used category. You can buy UTP
Category 5 (Unshielded Twisted Pair) Ethernet cabling in precrimped lengths, or you can crimp
your own. Crimping your own can result in faulty connections if the RJ-45 tips are not
attached properly. Precrimped Category 5 cabling is available at most computer retail stores.
The most reliable and commonly used type of Category 5 cabling used is UTP, or "unshielded
twisted pair." STP, or "shielded twisted pair" wiring is only necessary for network environments exposed to excessive amounts of electromagnetic interference, or EMI. These environments include areas with high sources of electrical power, air conditioning, generators, and
radio signals.
STP is also used for wiring outdoors.
There are two types of the wiring: Straight-Through Cables and Crossover Cables. Category 5
UTP/STP cable has eight wires inside the sheath. The wires form four pairs. Straight-Through
Cables has same pinouts at both ends while Crossover Cables has a different pin arrangement
at each end.
In a straight-through cable, wires 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 and 8 at one end of the cable are still wires 1~8
at the other end. In a crossover cable, the wires of 1,2,3,6 are reversed so that wire 1 become 3
at the other end of the cable, 2 becomes 6, and so forth.

To determine which wire is wire 1, hold the RJ-45 cable tip with the spring clip facing towards
the ground and the end pointing away from you. The copper wires exposed upwards to your
view. The first wire on the far left is wire 1. You can also refer to the illustrations and charts of
