Before You Begin
What This Guide Covers
This user guide provides instructions for an experienced installer to install an Extron
IPCP Pro Series IP Link Pro Control Processor. In this guide you will find detailed information
and best practices recommendations about cabling the control processor, a brief overview
of the configuration process, and reference information.
You will configure the control processor using Extron Global Configurator software running
in Global Configurator Professional (GC Professional) or Global Configurator Plus (GC Plus)
mode. This guide does not contain instructions on detailed software-related setup steps
or details of configuration within the software: those are covered in the Global Configurator
Help file and help files for related programs. The software help files describe how to use
each program to download drivers, add AV devices to a configuration, configure basic
functions, and set up schedules, macros, e-mail alerts, touchpanel button configurations,
and the like.
Conventions Used In This Guide
Throughout this guide the IPCP Pro Series products are also referred to as the “IPCP,”
“IPCP Pro,” or “control processor.” Global Configurator software is referred to as “GC”,
which can be run in Global Configurator Professional mode (“GC Professional”) or Global
Configurator Plus mode (“GC Plus”). The GlobalViewer Enterprise application is sometimes
referred to as “GVE.” Unless otherwise noted, in images of software or web pages, circled
numbers correspond to the like-numbered procedural steps.
Important Information You Need Before You Install These Control Processors
The IPCP Pro Series control processors and TouchLink Pro touchpanels work differently
from the previous generation of IP Link products. The order and types of setup tasks
are important. Pay close attention to them. Follow the setup checklist in the Hardware
Features and Installation section starting on page 7.
IPCP Pro Series • Introduction

About the IPCP Pro Series
Figure 1.
PRELIMINARY
The IPCP Pro Series Control Processors integrate Ethernet connection into AV systems to
allow users to remotely control, monitor, and troubleshoot AV equipment, including display
devices and switchers, source devices, and various other items such as lights, a projector
lift, or a screen motor. They can be used in a distributed control system environment or as
stand-alone control processors. Some models also have the ability to power devices that
accept 12 VDC.
IPCP Pro 250 (left), IPCP Pro 350 (center), IPCP Pro 550 (right)
An IPCP Pro Series control processor acts as the centerpiece of a control system that
features Extron TouchLink Pro Touchpanels. The IPCP supports multiple TouchLink Pro
touchpanels over a standard Ethernet network. The touchpanels provide a convenient,
aesthetically pleasing interface for controlling the IPCP, which, in turn, controls the other
system components. Another option is to use a third party device such as a touchpanel or
tablet in conjunction with Extron LinkLicense.
NOTE: GUI Designer is used to design the user interface layout any Extron
TouchLink Pro touchpanel or third party touch interface that will be used with the
IPCP.
The IPCP is configured completely via Global Configurator software. Once you have
set up how you want it to work (set up IP addresses and functions, assigned drivers to
ports, configured relays and digital input or output), that information is saved to a project
configuration file that is built and uploaded into the IPCP and to any optional TouchLink
touchpanels.
The IPCP Pro Series integrates seamlessly with Extron GlobalViewer Enterprise (GVE)
software and the GlobalViewer web-based AV resource management tool for remote control
applications.
Features
General features
Flexible options for device control — The IPCP offers RS-232 and infrared (IR) control,
TCP/Ethernet control and monitoring, relays, and either digital I/O (digital input or digital
output) or flexible I/O (analog input or digital input or digital output) controls. Some models
also offer independently switched 12 VDC power output or a port for volume control of an
Extron audio amplifier.
Rack mountability — All models except the IPCP Pro 350M are housed in a standard 1U
high enclosure which is easily rack mounted or can be installed in or under furniture with an
optional mounting kit.

An IPCP Pro 550 Application
Device Control
The IPCP must be configured in one of the following ways before it will send commands to a
projector, display, or other device:
•
An IR, RS-232, or Ethernet driver file can be downloaded from the extensive Extron
driver selection from the Extron website (www.extron.com/download/index.aspx).
The driver is saved to a folder and commands from the driver are incorporated into the
configuration file for the control processor and any touchpanels that will work with it.
The configuration file is built and uploaded to the IPCP via GC.
•
If a driver is not already available, RS-232 or Ethernet command strings can be
entered directly from a host computer using Global Configurator. These can then be
incorporated into controls within the GC project.
•
IR commands can be entered directly from an IR remote control through IR learning
via GC to create a driver that the IPCP can use. IR learning is seldom needed, but it is
convenient for installing new or updated commands into the IPCP Pro Series in the field
in the rare cases when a driver is not already available from Extron.
See the Global Configurator Help file (which comes with the software) for details on setting
up the IPCP and for downloading, programming, or learning device control commands.

This receiver accepts infrared signals of from 30 kHz to 300 KHz. The IR remote control
must be pointed directly at the receiver for best results. The front panel diagram (figure 5)
indicates the best distances and angles at which to hold the remote control.
NOTE: The IPCP 350M does not have an IR learning sensor.
Reset button and LED — Pressing this recessed button causes various IP functions
and Ethernet connection settings to be reset to the factory defaults. The green power LED
flashes depending on the selected reset mode (see Resetting the Unit and the reset
modes table on page 22 for details).
Mounting the IPCP Pro Series
Mounting Options
Optional 1U high rack shelves and a variety of rack mounting bracket kits and furniture
mounting kits are available for use with the IPCP. Visit the product-specific page on the
Extron website for a list of compatible accessories for mounting your control processor or
call a support representative to find out which kit to order for your installation. Read the
instructions that come with the rack shelf or mounting kit for installation procedures and see
the UL rack mounting guidelines (below) for safe installation.
UL Rack Mounting Guidelines
The following Underwriters Laboratories (UL) guidelines pertain to the safe installation of
IPCP Pro Series control processors in a rack.
1. Elevated operating ambient temperature — If installed in a closed or multi-unit
rack assembly, the operating ambient temperature of the rack environment may be
greater than room ambient temperature. Therefore, install the IPCP in an environment
compatible with the maximum ambient temperature (Tma = +122 °F, +50 °C) specified
by Extron.
2. Reduced air flow — Install the equipment in a rack so that the amount of air flow
required for safe operation of the equipment is not compromised.
3. Mechanical loading — Mount the equipment in the rack so that a hazardous
condition is not achieved due to uneven mechanical loading.
4. Circuit overloading — Connect the equipment to the supply circuit and consider the
effect that circuit overloading might have on overcurrent protection and supply wiring.
Appropriate consideration of equipment nameplate ratings should be used when
addressing this concern.
5. Reliable earthing (grounding) — Maintain reliable grounding of rack-mounted
equipment. Pay particular attention to supply connections other than direct connections
to the branch circuit (such as use of power strips).

Figure 10. Wiring COM ports for Serial Control
For bidirectional serial communication, the transmit, ground, and receive pins must be
wired at both the IPCP Pro Series and the other device. Each projector or other device
may require different wiring. For details, see the manual for that equipment or read the
Extron device driver communication sheet, which is included with the drivers.
NOTE: Maximum distances between the IPCP and the device being controlled
may vary up to 200 feet (61 m). Factors such as cable gauge, baud rates,
environment, and output levels (from the IPCP and the device being controlled) all
affect transmission distance. Distances of about 50 feet (15 m) are typically not a
problem. In some cases the IPCP may be capable of transmitting and controlling
a given device via RS‑232 up to 250 feet (76 m) away, but the RS-232 response
levels of that device may be too low for the IPCP to detect.

network (so you can configure and control the IPCP and the devices connected to it),
plug a cable into one of these LAN RJ-45 sockets and connect the other end of the
cable to a network switch, hub, router, or PC connected to a LAN or the Internet. If
the IPCP has more than one LAN or LAN A port, the rest of the LAN or LAN A ports
function as simple network switches (a multiport, unmanaged switch), so that you can
connect additional devices to the same network.

These relay contacts may be used to control any equipment as long as the contact
specifications of a total of 24 volts at 1 ampere are not exceeded for each port. These
relays are normally open by default.
When activated, the open contacts close. They can be set up to operate in one of two
ways:
•
Latching (brief contact) (press to turn on, press to turn off), or
•
Pulsed (timed cycle) (press to turn on, timeout to turn off, with automatic repeat).
In pulse mode the default timeout period (hold time) is ½ second (500 ms). Use Global
Configurator to change the length of the timeout period.
NOTE: The pulse function is absolute: it always sets the relay state to closed, times
out (briefly), then opens the contact. It overrides the previously selected setting
(on state, off state, or toggle).

Figure 14. Flex I/O Port Wiring Examples
Analog input — When a flex I/O port is configured as an analog input, the port can
measure 0 to 25.3 VDC with 12-bit accuracy. A DC level is indicated by a count from
0-4096 (≈ 6 mV per count).
Digital input — To allow the IPCP to monitor external devices that do not use RS‑232
communication, connect a switch, motion sensor, moisture sensor, tally feedback
output, button pad, or a similar item to a flex I/O port and configure it for digital input.
When configured as a digital input, the port is set to measure two states: high and low.
The port accepts 0 to 25.3 VDC input.
For flex I/O ports, threshold voltages are adjustable. Default thresholds are:
• 0.8 VDC — port on, logic low
• 2.4 VDC — port off, logic high
There is also an internal, +5 VDC, selectable, pull-up resistor for this circuit.
Digital output — To power LEDs, incandescent lights, or other devices that accept a
TTL signal, or to provide contact closure control for projector lifts, motorized screens,
room or light switches via an Extron IPA T RLY4 or similar device, you can use one or
more of these ports as a digital output. When a port is configured for digital output, it
offers two output states: on and off.
•
When the port is set to an “on” state, (the circuit is closed), the I/O pin is connected
to ground. Output voltage is less than 0.5 volts.
When the port is set to the “off” state (the circuit is open), the output pin is not
connected. If the application calls for TTL compatibility, the digital output circuit can
be set up to provide a 2k ohm pull-up resistor to +5 VDC.
• If the pull-up resistor is disabled, voltage output is determined by an external
source device.
• If the pull-up resistor is enabled, voltage output is 4.3 VDC.
Each I/O port is capable of accepting 250 mA, maximum.

Project Recovery
Result
Purpose and Notes
To start the Use Factory Firmware reset mode and replace firmware:
1. On the control processor, hold down the recessed Reset button
while applying power to the unit. Hold the button down until the
Power LED flashes twice. The control processor enters factory
firmware mode, and the LED flashes quickly.
2. Upload new firmware to the unit as desired (see Updating the
Firmware on page 38 for details).
The unit continues to run factory-installed
firmware until the user updates the firmware or
power is cycled to the unit, which then reboots
with the last loaded version of the firmware.
The control processor reverts to the factory
default firmware. Event scripting does not start
if the unit is powered on in this mode. All user
files and settings such as drivers, adjustments,
and IP settings are maintained.
Use this mode to
temporarily boot up
the unit with factoryinstalled firmware for a
single power cycle in the
event that a firmware
update has failed or if
incompatibility issues
arise with user-loaded
firmware.
NOTE: After a User Factory Firmware reset is performed,
update the IPCP firmware to the latest version. Do not
operate the IPCP control processor firmware version that
results from the reset. This mode temporarily resets the unit
to factory default until power is recycled. If you want to use
the factory default firmware, you must upload that version
again. See the Global Configurator Help file for firmware
upload instructions.
To start the Project Recovery reset mode and recover a project:
1. On the PC, open Global Configurator.
2. Click the Tools menu and select Project Recovery. The
Recovery Mode dialog box opens.
3. Enter the IP address or host name of the target device for which
you want to perform project recovery.
4. Click Recover. The software attempts to connect to the control
processor. It allows indefinite time to establish a connection
(until a connection is made or the user clicks Cancel).
5. On the control processor, hold down the recessed Reset button
while applying power to the unit. Hold the button down until the
Power LED flashes twice. The control processor enters project
recovery mode for 20 seconds, during which time the LED
flashes quickly.
GC automatically connects to the control processor, then opens
and retrieves the project from the unit.
6. Perform an absolute reset on the control processor:
a. Hold down the Reset button for about 9 seconds until the
Power LED blinks three times (once at 3 seconds, again at
6 seconds, again at 9 seconds).
b. Release and press Reset momentarily (for <1 second)
within 1 second. The control processor reboots and
operates using the old firmware.
*Nothing happens if the momentary press does not occur within
1 second.
7. Open Toolbelt within Global Configurator, start device discovery,
select the desired control processor from the list and click
Manage.
8. Click the Network Settings tab and set the IP address of
the control processor.
9. Click the User Management tab and change the password of
the control processor.
10. Close Toolbelt.
11. In GC, add the new password to the recovered project.
12. Save the project.
13. Upload the project from GC to the control processor.
14. Upload firmware to the unit (see Updating the Firmware on
page 38 for details).
NOTE: To return the unit to the firmware
version that was running prior to the
reset, cycle power to the unit.
Project recovery mode stops regular
operation and allows a connection to be
made to the unit via GC software without
requiring password entry so that project
files can be retrieved and saved.
• During product recovery mode, events are
stopped, and so is communication with AV
devices.
• While the control processor is in this mode,
use the GC software to recover project files.
• If the software does not initiate project
recovery within 30 seconds after the control
processor enters this mode, the control
processor exits recovery mode and returns to
normal operation.
• Upon exiting project recovery mode:
• The unit returns to its pre-recovery mode
state and settings.
• The Power LED returns to being steadily
lit.
The unit continues to run factory-installed
firmware until the user updates the firmware or
power is cycled to the unit, which then reboots
with the last loaded version of the firmware.
NOTE:User-defined
web pages may
not work correctly
if using an earlier
firmware version.
Use this mode to...
• Recover project
configuration and
program files if
passwords have been
lost.
• Temporarily boot
up the unit with
factory-installed
firmware for a single
power cycle in the
event that a firmware
update has failed or if
incompatibility issues
arise with user-loaded
firmware.
NOTE:User-defined

Obtaining Control Drivers
Extron provides an extensive selection of device drivers available on the Extron website.
Ethernet, serial, and infrared (IR) device drivers (for controlling projectors, displays, DVD
players, document cameras, and so forth) are available as individual device driver files. Prior
to configuration, download driver files for products that will be used in the installation.
NOTE: For serial or Ethernet devices, IPCP Pro Series control processors require
IP Link Pro drivers. They do not support serial or Ethernet drivers that were created
for IP Link (non-Pro) products. However, existing Extron IR driver files are supported.
If the system requires a driver that is not already available, you have additional options:
•
Request a new serial (RS‑232) or Ethernet driver from Extron.
•
Create your own custom IR device driver using the IR learning feature within GC or
Extron IR Learner software. The IR learning feature makes it possible to capture infrared
codes from a handheld IR remote control and create custom drivers for operating the
corresponding IR-controlled device. Follow the directions in the help file to create a
driver by using the remote control for that device and the IR receiver port on the front
panel of the IPCP Pro.
NOTE: The IPCP 350M does not have an IR learning sensor.
Things to Do After Installing GC and Before Starting a Project
•
Read the Global Configurator Help file for details and step-by-step procedures on
how to start a GC Professional or GC Plus project and perform basic setup tasks for a
control processor.
•
Obtain network addresses and related information from your network administrator.

who can provide you access to the latest version.
•
Set up the IP address for the control processor. See Network Communication Setup
on page 9 for an overview of how to set up the network properties of the unit. For
details, see the GC help file, which contains instructions on how to set the IP address,
gateway IP address, subnet mask, mail server IP address, domain name, web port,
SMTP username, and SMTP password so that the IPCP is able to communicate with
the network.
Using GC: Helpful Tips
•
The IPCP Pro Series Setup Guide is shipped with the unit, and it lists available
resources (software, drivers, instructions). It includes a quick reference to the front and
rear panel features, and covers basic hardware installation.
•
The Global Configurator Help file provides a wealth of information on settings and
how to use the software, itself. The help file, included with the software, covers basic
setup steps and includes examples of how to use the features of GC and step by step
instructions for typical configuration tasks.
•
See Front Panel Features on page 10 and Rear Panel Features and
Connections on page 12 in the “Hardware Features and Installation” section of this
guide for features and settings for the ports you will configure.
•
If you will configure the IPCP at the installation site, Extron recommends downloading
drivers for all the devices in the installation before you go out into the field.
•
The Global Configurator project file (*.gcpro or *.gcplus) contains configuration
settings and it can be saved to a directory or folder for backup or for installation on
another IPCP Pro control processor. Saving a configuration is recommended before you
perform a firmware upgrade.
•
The IPCP can be set up to allow configuration access only to administrators to prevent
other users from making changes to settings, events, and controls.
•
IP address, subnet mask, and gateway address are required during network setup of
the control processor.
•
The unit name is any name (for example, Room730-IPCPPro550, ConfRmSystem)
that you want to use to label a specific IPCP unit. The default is a combination of the
product name and part of the hardware (MAC) address. This can be changed to your
choice of alphanumeric characters and hyphens (-).
•
Spaces are not permitted within the name of a unit.
•
Underscores (_) are not permitted.
•
Valid characters are A-Z, a-z, 0-9, and - (hyphen).
•
The name cannot start with a number or a hyphen, and it cannot end with a
hyphen.
•
Maximum name length is 24 characters.

Resources and Notes
Troubleshooting
Turn on the input devices (DVD players, Blu-ray players, PCs, and other sources), output
devices (display screens, projectors), the control processor, and the PC and touchpanel or
eBUS button panels. Touch a configured button on the touchpanel or eBUS button panel.
If an input or output AV device cannot be remotely controlled (does not respond as
expected), check the following:
•
Ensure that all devices are plugged in.
•
Make sure that each device is receiving power. The IPCP front panel power LED lights if
the device is receiving power.
•
If the IPCP includes switched power output ports, verify that the overload indicator LED
is not lit. If the switched 12 VDC power output Over LED is lit, the power draw at the
switched power ports has been exceeded. To restore these ports to normal function, do
the following:
1. Correct the hardware cause of the overload. Disconnect one or more devices from
the 12 VDC switched power output ports on the IPCP. The IPCP waits a moment
and rechecks the power load.
•
If the total load (power draw) is now within safe limits, the IPCP automatically
re‑enables the ports. The green switched 12 VDC power status LEDs on the
IPCP light, the red Over LED is unlit, and power is restored to the output ports.
•
If the total load still exceeds the maximum threshold, the Over LED remains lit
and the ports remain off until the overload is corrected. See step 2.
2. Repeat step 1 (disconnect another device from the switched power output ports)
as needed until the Over LED turns off and all the green switched 12 VDC power
status LEDs on the IPCP light.
Data Connections
1. Check the cabling connections and make adjustments as needed. The Link LEDs on
the IPCP and on the touchpanel or PC should be lit solid green if a network connection
is detected. If these LEDs are not lit, either the cable is faulty or not plugged in, or the
wrong type of cable is being used (see LAN or LAN A (IP) connectors and LEDs on
page 16).
2. Try to “ping” the unit by entering ping 192.168.254.250 at the command prompt
on the PC, or use the IP or web address provided to you by your system administrator.
If you get no response:
•
Make sure your unit is using the appropriate subnet mask (check with your system
administrator).
•
Make sure your PC and network do not have a software firewall program that might
block the IP address of the IPCP unit.
3. If contact is established with the unit, but the IPCP web pages cannot be accessed
by your web browser, verify (via an Internet network options or preferences menu) that
your web browser is configured for direct network connection and is not set up to use a
proxy server.

Power Connections
•
Verify that ports are wired correctly and that ground (earthing) wires are connected to
the proper pins on the control processor and, if applicable, on the controlled device.
•
Ensure that each IR emitter head is placed adjacent to or directly over the IR pickup
window on the controlled device.
•
Verify that the appropriate drivers were used while creating the configuration file and that
the correct commands and signal types (IR, RS‑232, Ethernet) are associated with the
appropriate ports on the control processor and on the other devices.
•
For digital input and output connections, verify whether the application requires the
+5 VDC pull-up resistor within the IPCP for TTL circuits and use the software to check
whether it is selected within the configuration.
•
Verify that input current at any digital input or output port does not exceed 250 mA.
•
Verify that input current at the volume control port (IPCP Pro 250) does not exceed
10 VDC and that the amplifier is cabled correctly, as well.
If you are still experiencing problems, call the Extron S3 Sales & Technical Support
Hotline or the Extron S3 Control Systems Support Hotline (1.800.633.9877).

10/100Base-T
Ethernet which uses unshielded twisted pair (UTP - CAT 5, CAT 5e, CAT 6) cable, where the
amount of data transmitted between two points in a given amount of time is equal to either
10 Mbps or 100 Mbps.
1000Base-T, gigabit Ethernet
An Ethernet standard that transmits at 1 Gbps over twisted pair wire.
Custom web page
Any file that can be loaded into an IPCP and served by the internal web server. The IPCP
can be used for various web-based tasks. The web page provides a way to control the
IPCP and other devices attached to it without use of the software, and with or without an
accompanying event script. Any number and size of graphics can be used. If they are too
large to fit in the nonvolatile memory of the IPCP, web pages can be created so that they
can be served from another web server using Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS).
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol)
A standardized client-server communications protocol that enables a server to automatically
assign unique network addresses (IP address, subnet mask, gateway) to a device using a
defined range of numbers configured for the network.
DNS (Domain Name System)
DNS is the application layer protocol that locates and translates an Internet domain name
(such as www.extron.com) into a numerical Internet Protocol (IP) address. A domain name is
an easy-to-remember “handle” for an Internet address.
Driver
A software package that controls the interface between the control processor and peripheral
devices.
Ethernet
A network protocol that uses MAC addresses instead of IP addresses to exchange data
between computers. Using ARP (see above) with TCP/IP support, Ethernet devices can
be connected to the Internet. An Ethernet LAN typically uses unshielded twisted pair (UTP)
wires. Ethernet systems currently provide transmission speeds of 10 Mbps, 100 Mbps (fast
Ethernet), or 1000 Mbps (gigabit Ethernet).
FTP (File Transfer Protocol)
A protocol that is used to transfer files from one host to another host over a TCP-based
network (such as the Internet). Also see Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) for the version
that incorporates security features.
IPCP Pro Series • Reference Information

PRELIMINARY
This section of the guide includes the following reference items:
HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol)
A network protocol based on TCP/IP that is used to retrieve hypertext objects from remote
web pages and allows servers to transfer and display web content to users.
HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure)
A communications protocol for secure communication over a computer network. It allows
web servers to transfer and display web content to users securely. All transferred data
is encrypted so that only the recipient is able to access and read the content. It is not a
protocol, itself, but rather a combination of Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) on top of
the SSL/TLS protocol, which adds the security capabilities of SSL/TLS to standard HTTP
communications.
IP (Internet Protocol)
The protocol or standard used to send information from one computer to another on the
Internet.
IP address
A unique, 32-bit, binary number (12 digit decimal number, xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx) that identifies
each device or device port (an information sender and/or receiver) that is connected to
a LAN, WAN, or the Internet. IP addresses can be static (see static IP) or dynamic (see
DHCP).
PRELIMINARY
ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol)
ICMP is an Internet protocol is used by network devices (routers, switches, and the like)
to send error messages or relay query messages. Typically ICMP messages are used
for diagnostic or control purposes or are sent to the source IP address in response to IP
operations errors. Error messages include notices that a device is not available or that a
host or router could not be reached.
IP net mask/subnet mask — See subnet mask.
MAC (Media Access Control) Address
A unique hardware number given to devices that connect to a network such as the Internet.
When a computer or networking device (router, hub, interface, and the like) is connected
to a LAN or the Internet, a table (which is used in ARP) relates the IP address of the device
to its corresponding physical (MAC) address on the LAN. This protocol allows for several
terminals or network nodes to communicate within a multi-point network, typically a local
area network (LAN).
NTP (Network Time Protocol)
NTP is an Application layer networking protocol that synchronizes clocks among computers
and other devices over networks.
Ping
A utility/diagnostic tool that tests network connections. It is used to determine if the host
has an operating connection and is able to exchange information with another host.
Port number
A preassigned address within a server (such as the control processor) that provides a
direct route from the Application to the Transport layer or from the Transport layer to the
Application of a TCP/IP system.
SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol)
Similar to FTP, this protocol adds encryption and requires credentials for file transfers.
SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol)
SMTP is an Internet standard for e-mail transmission. By default, SMTP uses TCP port 25.
SMTP connections secured by SSL, known as SMTPS, default to port 465.
SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol)
SNMP is an Application layer protocol that facilitates the exchange of basic network
management information between network devices. It helps in monitoring of operations and
factors such as bandwidth, memory usage, remote password resets, and collection of error
information. This protocol collects (and configures) information from network devices (such
as servers, hubs, switches, and routers) on an Internet Protocol (IP) network.

SSH (Secure Shell)
SSH is a network protocol for secure data communication and providing various secure
network services between two networked computers. SSH creates a secure channel
over an insecure network to connect client and server devices. It allows confidential
communications of passwords and similar data over public or otherwise insecure networks.
Static IP
An IP address that has been specifically (instead of dynamically—see DHCP) assigned
to a device or system in a network configuration. This type of address requires manual
configuration of the actual network device or system and can only be changed manually or
by enabling DHCP.
Subnet address
The portion of an IP address that is specifically identified by the subnet mask as the
subnetwork.
Subnet mask
A 32-bit binary number (12 digit decimal number, xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx) used on subnets (smaller,
local networks) to help routers determine which network traffic gets routed internally (within
the subnetwork) to local computers and which network traffic goes out to the rest of the
network or the Internet. It is an address mask used to identify the bits of an IP address that
are used for the subnet address. Using a mask, the router does not need to examine all
32 bits, only those selected by the mask.
Subnetwork
A network that is part of a larger IP network and is identified by a subnet address. Networks
can be segmented into subnetworks to provide a hierarchical, multilevel routing structure.
TCP (Transmission Control Protocol)
A connection-oriented protocol at the Transport layer of the Open Systems Interconnection
(OSI, ISO/IEC 7498-1) reference model. It provides reliable end-to-end data delivery from
one network device to another.
TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol)
The communication protocol of the Internet. Computers and devices with direct access
to the Internet are provided with a copy of the TCP/IP program to allow them to send and
receive information in an understandable form.
Tool tip
Text that appears when the mouse pointer hovers over a button or other item on screen.
UDP (User Datagram Protocol)
A connectionless, Internet transport layer protocol that sends packets (datagrams) of
information across networks using “best-effort” delivery. It is a relatively simple protocol that
does not include handshaking. It is faster than TCP and is often used for broadcast and
multicast communication, but it does not include data verification to ensure that all packets
arrived at their destination.
URL (Uniform Resource Locator)
The address (such as www.extron.com) that lets a resource on the internet be identified,
located, and accessed.

Firmware Updates
•
Determining the Firmware Version — How to find the current firmware version
•
Updating the Firmware — How to download and replace firmware
PRELIMINARY
If the need arises, you can replace the IPCP firmware without opening the unit or changing
firmware chips. This section covers the following aspects of how to do that:
Determining the Firmware Version
There are several ways to check which version of firmware the control processor is using:
•
View the device information in the Toolbelt feature within Global Configurator
(GC Professional or GC Plus mode).
•
View the general status information section of the IPCP embedded web pages.
•
View the GlobalViewer (GV) web pages (if the control processor has already been
configured and the GV web pages have been generated, built, and uploaded to the
control processor).
Before using any of those methods, connect the control processor and the PC to the
same network. For details see the Hardware Features and Installation section starting
on page 7, the Software-based Configuration and Control section starting on
page 25, and the IPCP Pro Series Setup Guide.
Using Global Configurator
1. Start Global Configurator in either GC Professional or GC Plus mode.
2. Open the Toolbelt feature.
3. Either add the desired control processor manually or start device discovery and select
the desired processor from the list of discovered devices.
4. Click Manage in the row for the desired control processor and view the device
information that appears in that section.
Using a Web Browser
The control processor comes with a set of factory default embedded web pages. Also, after
configuration, the GlobalViewer (GV) application could be installed in the unit, providing a
different set of web pages. See the Global Configurator Help file for information on how to
use that software and the resulting web pages. Either type of web page (factory default or
GV) can be used to find the firmware version and part number of the unit.
1. Start a web browser program.
2. Type the IP address of the control processor into the browser in the address field and
log on to the internal web page or to the optional GlobalViewer web page stored in the
control processor (see the Global Configurator Help file for details).
3. Look for the general device or status information section.
IPCP Pro Series • Firmware Updates
37
Updating the Firmware
Firmware upgrade tools require the PC and the control processor to both be connected
to an Ethernet network. The instructions for updating the IPCP firmware assume you have
installed the appropriate software on your PC first.
• Check the Extron website (www.extron.com) for firmware-related documents,
instructions, patch files, and new firmware files before loading new firmware into
the control processor. We recommend that you read the firmware release notes
(available from www.extron.com) before beginning the firmware update.
Locating and Downloading the Firmware
1. Visit the Extron website to find the latest firmware file for the control processor. The
easiest way to locate files is through the Downloads tab on the web page for the
specific model.
2. Download the executable installer file (*.exe) from the website and run the installer
program. The program automatically stores the firmware file on the PC in C:\Program
Files\Extron\Firmware within a folder specific to that version.
3. Write down the firmware filename and location for later use. The filename ends in .eff
such as 49-247-50-x.xx.xxxx-yyyy.eff where x.xx.xxxx is the version
number.
NOTE: The firmware update file must have a filename extension of .eff. If the file
does not have that extension, it will not work properly.
Installing Firmware
Firmware can be replaced by using one of the following:
•
Global Configurator (using the Toolbelt feature)
•
The firmware uploader feature in the default embedded web page
Both methods allow you to browse to find and select the appropriate .eff file on your PC
and then click an Upload button to initiate the firmware upload to the control processor.
Allow at least a couple minutes for the firmware to finish uploading. At the end of the upload
process, the unit partially reboots and loses its connection to the PC. Therefore, to continue
using the web page or Toolbelt you will need to refresh the web page or reconnect via
Toolbelt after the firmware update.

NOTES:
• You should save the existing configuration to a file (see the Global Configurator
Help file for instructions) before replacing the firmware. If the file is saved, the
configuration can be restored to the IPCP later using GC.
