PollCat NetLink II B

17.1. Command Mode Access

 

When the NetLink II has been properly installed and configured, command mode can be accessed by a local PC connected directly to the Console Port, by a remote PC that communicates via modem, or via TCP/IP network.

Notes:

•                      If the Site I.D. Message (System Parameters Menu, Item 4) has been defined, the Site I.D. will be displayed before the "PollCat-NetLink" prompt.

•                      When the Administrator Password is entered, NetLink II will start up in Administrator Mode, allowing access to all menu functions. When a User password is entered, NetLink II will start up in User Mode, which allows limited access to menu functions.

•                      The Default Administrator Mode Password is SUPER, and the default User Mode Password is SMDR.

 

1. Remote Access (via Modem): Start your communications program and dial the NetLink.

a) The unit will respond with the "PollCat-NetLink" (password) prompt after the carrier is detected.

b) Key in a valid password and press [Enter]. Note that the Password feature is case-sensitive.

c) The Main Menu or the "Ready" prompt will be displayed. If the "Ready" prompt is displayed, press [Enter] to display the NetLink II Main Menu. Note that if the Dialback Number has been defined for your User Account, NetLink II will perform a dialback operation before allowing access to command mode. For more information, please refer to Section 5.4.4.1.

2. Local Access (Console Port): Start your communications program.

a) If Set-Up Switch 1 is UP (Enable Console Port Password), the "PollCat- NetLink" (password) prompt will be displayed.

b) Key in a valid password and press [Enter]. Note that the Password feature is case-sensitive.

c) The Main Menu or the "Ready" prompt will be displayed. If the "Ready" prompt is displayed, press [Enter] to display the NetLink II Main Menu.

3. Access via TCP/IP Network: If network parameters for the NetLink II unit have been assigned (see Section 5.4.5), key the NetLink II's IP address into your Telnet client, or establish a telnet session using the following format:

telnet ipaddress [port] [Enter]

Where: ipaddress NetLink II's assigned IP Address.

port (Optional) The desired Port Number.  If this item is omitted, telnet will connect to port #23 by default; Command Echo will be set according to NetLink II's current configuration, and $FF Stuffing will be enabled. Options:

2001 Behaves the same as Port #23. 3001 Preconfigured with echo enabled and $FF Stuffing Off.

a) If the password is enabled, the "PollCat-NetLink" (password) prompt will appear.

b) Key in a valid password and press [Enter]. Note that the Password feature is case-sensitive.

c) After a brief pause, the Main Menu or the "Ready" prompt will appear.  If the "Ready" prompt is displayed, press [Enter] to display the NetLink II Main Menu.

d) To end a session, disconnect using your Telnet software.

Notes:

•                      In order to control or configure the unit via network, you must first access command mode via the Modem Port or Console Port, and enable the Telnet Access option (Network Parameters Menu, Item 31) as described in Section 5.4.5.

•                      When the NetLink II unit is reset to default parameters, Telnet Access will be disabled by default.
