Introduction
Introduction
Welcome to Multi-Tech's new ISDN ProxyServer model number
MTPSR1-202ST, a single, secure gateway that provides multiple
LAN users with high performance Internet access. The ISDN
ProxyServer functions as a TCP/IP proxyserver that resides on the
outer edge of your firewall and provides Basic Rate ISDN Service
using its internal 2B+D terminal adapter. The ISDN ProxyServer
features a 10BaseT port for local LAN connection, Command Port
for configuration, and an internal 2B+D ISDN terminal adapter for
64K bps per channel or 128K bps effective bandwidth when
software BONDing (Bandwidth ON Demand) is employed. System
management is provided through the command port using bundled
Windows® software which provides easy-to-use configuration
menus.

Safety
Safety Warnings
1. Never install telephone wiring during a lightning storm.
2. Never install telephone jacks in wet locations unless
the jack is specifically designed for wet locations.
3. Never touch uninsulated telephone wires or terminals
unless the telephone line has been disconnected at the
network interface.
4. Use caution when installing or modifying telephone
lines.
5. Avoid using a telephone (other than a cordless type)
during an electrical storm. There may be a remote risk
of electrical shock from lightning.
6. Do not use the telephone to report a gas leak in the
vicinity of the leak.

Cabling your ProxyServer
Cabling your ProxyServer involves making the proper Power,
Command Port, Ethernet, and WAN connections. Figure 3 shows
the back panel connectors and the associated cable connections.
Table 1 details the procedures for connecting the cables to your
ProxyServer.

Step
Procedure
1
Connect one end of the power supply to a live AC outlet
and connect the other end to the ProxyServer as shown in
Figure 3. The power connector is a 6-pin circular DIN
connector.
2
Connect the ProxyServer to a PC by using the short
RJ45 to DB25 (female) cable provided with your unit. Plug
the RJ45 end of the cable into the Command Port of the
ProxyServer and the other end into the RS232 cable from
the PC serial port. See Figure 3.
3
To make the network connection, connect one end of an
RJ45 (UTP) cable to the 10 BASE-T connector on the back
of the ProxyServer as shown in Figure 3. Connect the other
end of the cable to your LAN.
4
Connect one end of an RJ45 cable to the ISDN
connector on the back of the unit and connect the other
end to the ISDN Telephone Network (Telco wall jack) as
shown in Figure 3.
5
Turn on power to the ProxyServer by placing the ON/OFF
switch on the back panel to the ON position.
Wait for the Fail LED on the ProxyServer to go OFF
before proceeding. This may take a couple minutes to
go off.
At this time your ProxyServer is completely cabled. Proceed
to the next section to load your ProxyServer software.

ISDN ProxyServer Quick Start Guide
Before You Start Loading your Software
Consider the following choices before you configure your ProxyServer and record your selections on the following pages; then
refer to them while loading your software.
Network Configuration
ü Network Switch Type_______________________________
Select the network switch type your ISDN service provider uses
at its local central office. You can set the ProxyServer to NET3
(DSS1), 1TR6, VN4, INS64, NI-1, AT&T 5ESS, or DMS-100. If
you do not know the switch type, you can get the information
from your ISDN service provider.
ü Data TEI__________________________________________
The Data TEI is the TEI that is assigned to the data channel.
You can select “Auto TEI,” a fixed TEI (from 0 to 63), or “Disabled.” A TEI (terminal endpoint identifier) is a number used by
the central office switch to uniquely identify each device that is
connected to the network. When it uses dynamic TEI assignments (Auto TEI), the central office switch assigns a TEI each time
the ProxyServer connects to the network. However, the ISDN
service provider may assign a fixed TEI at subscription time, in
which case you must configure the ProxyServer with the fixed TEI
number. You can also disable the channel, which may be useful
when multiple ProxyServers are attached to a network terminator bus.
ü Voice TEI_________________________________________
The Voice TEI is the TEI assigned to the voice channel. You
have the same choices as for the Voice TEI: “Auto TEI,” a fixed
TEI number (from 0 to 63), or “Disabled.”
ü Data SPID________________________________________
The ProxyServer must be configured with the Service Profile
Identifier (SPID). The data SPID is assigned by the local phone
company and is for the specific BRI line to which the ProxyServer will be attached. The data SPID string can have up to 20
characters. The data SPID is not used if the switch type is set
to NET3.
6
Software
Note: For DMS-100 switches, any ASCII character except the
underline (_) character is valid. For NI-1 and AT&T switches,
only the digits 0-9 are valid.
ü Voice SPID________________________________________
The voice SPID is assigned by the local phone company and is
for the specific BRI line to which the ProxyServer will be attached. The voice SPID string can have up to 20 characters.
The data SPID is not used if the switch type is set to NET3.
Note: For DMS-100 switches, any ASCII character except the
underline (_) character is valid. For NI-1 and AT&T switches,
only the digits 0-9 are valid.
ü Data Directory Number______________________________
The data Directory Number (DN) is a telephone number that is
assigned to the ProxyServer at subscription time by the ISDN
service provider. The DN is a string of up to 24 characters;
valid characters are 0-9, the * character, and the # character.
ü Voice Directory Number______________________________
The voice Directory Number (DN) is a telephone number that is
assigned to the ProxyServer at subscription time by the ISDN
service provider. The DN is a string of up to 24 characters;
valid characters are 0-9, the * character, and the # character.
Call Control Parameters
ü Persistent DTR Dialing______________________________
A high DTR (Data Terminal Ready) signal on the Command port
indicates that your computer or terminal is ready to communicate with your ProxyServer. DTR normally goes high when a
communication program starts or is ready to dial. Persistent
DTR dialing enables the ProxyServer to automatically redial the
number stored in memory location 0 whenever DTR is high and
the serial port does not have an active call. You may enable or
disable this feature.
ü Calling Line Identification___________________________
Identifies whether the two endpoints of a connection are enabled or disabled. Since RING messages only appear for
ISDN data calls, the CLI feature does not define a means of
7
ISDN ProxyServer Quick Start Guide
conveying Calling Party information to the terminal for ISDN
voice calls. The CLI information is only included with the first
RING message for a given incoming call, and appears as follows:
RING
FM: 5552000 TO: 5551000
If the Calling Party Number information is not included in the
incoming SETUP message, the RING message appears as
follows:
RING
TO: 5551000
If the Called Party Number information is not included in the
incoming SETUP message, the RING message will appear as
follows:
RING
FM: 5552000
If neither the Called Party Number, nor the Calling Party Number is included in the incoming SETUP message, the RING
message will contain no additional information.
ü Auto Protocol Detection - Always Unchecked (Disabled)
Identifies that automatic protocol detection is enabled or disabled for an ISDN data call. The default setting is 0, which disables the Auto-Protocol Detection function.
ü Auto Answer Data Calls _________ Rings to Answer____
Select Auto Answer if you want your ProxyServer to automatically answer all incoming data calls (this option does not affect
the analog port). The Rings to Answer number, in the range of
1 to 255, selects the number of rings the ProxyServer waits
before answering an incoming call. The default is one ring.
Data Control
ü Data Protocol_____________________________________
The data protocol, also known as the B-channel protocol and
the rate adaption protocol, is the “language” that is spoken over
each 64K bps channel between two ISDN devices. The devices
on both ends of the ISDN link must use identical data protocols.
8
Software
MLPPP Protocol
The MLPPP (Multi-Link PPP) protocol provides rates up to 64K
bps per channel. This protocol uses both B channels at once,
providing an aggregate data transmission speed of 128K bps.
ü Dialing Method _____________________________________
Select either the “Enbloc” or the “Overlap” dialing method for
use when establishing a data call. Your ISDN service provider
determines the dialing method. The en bloc method is used for
most ISDN dialing; however, you can select the overlap method
if you are working with a private network.
