Enhanced IP Communication Between
Bosch Security Systems, Inc. Control Panels and RPS
Affects:
•
GV2 Series, G Series, D9000 Series, and D9124 Control Panels
•
DX4020 and D9133TTL-E Network Interface Modules
•
RPS
To maintain successful network communications, all new or existing control panels with the firmware
revisions listed in Section 2.0 Implementation require RPS v5.5 and network interface modules
configured to use Datagram Mode 02.
1.0
Description
The latest GV2, G, and D9000 Series firmware releases enable RPS workstations located on private networks, behind a
router or firewall, to communicate with control panels outside of that network.
These control panels now support Port Address Translation (PAT) for networks that require it. PAT allows multiple internal
hosts to share a single public IP address for communication, but guards them from exposing their own IP addresses to the
public network.
The benefits of this enhancement are:
•
Typically, rules or port forwarding are not required for routers or firewalls.
•
No static IP addresses are required for RPS workstations.
•
Multiple RPS workstations on a LAN/WAN can share one public IP address through a router.
2.0
Implementation
To implement this IP communication enhancement, ensure that:
•
GV2 Series control panels have v7.06 or later firmware installed.
•
G Series and D9000 Series control panels have v7.00 or later firmware installed.
•
DX4020 network interface modules have Bosch v1.5d or Bosch v5.8.8.3 or later firmware installed.
•
D9133TTL-E network interface modules have Bosch v5.8.8.4 or later firmware installed.
•
DX4020 and D9133TTL-E modules are configured to use Datagram Mode 02. For more information, refer to the
DX4020 Installation Guide (P/N: F01U045288) or the D9133TTL-E Installation Guide (P/N: 4998122717).
•
You are using RPS v5.5 or later.
