Resetting the PortServer to factory default settings.

ING Digi PortServer IP Addressing

Configuration of the PortServer via Telnet:

user@scorpio> telnet portserver1
login: root
passwd: dbps

Now you must enter the following commands. The easiest way is to open a telnet session to the PortServer in one window and then using the mouse, cut the commands from below and paste them into the telnet session.

set config submask=
set config domain=ing.iac.es
set config gateway=
set config nameserv=
set config realport=771
set config boothost=
set ports range=* termtype="vt100" dev=prn sess=4 uid=0 edelay=1
set ports range=* auto=off bin=off group=0 dport=0 dest=
set line range=* baud=9600 csize=8 parity=N stopb=1 break=ignore
set line range=* error=null inpck=off istrip=off onlcr=off otab=off

set logins range=13-15 write=off login=on passwd=on verbose=off
set logins range=16 write=off login=off passwd=on verbose=off
set ports range=13-16 dev=term
set users rmuser=on range=*
set altip rmrange range=*
set arp rmarp=on range=*
set auth rmrange=*
set auth range=1 ip= mask= real=* login=0
set logins message=1:"Digi International" range=*
set logins message=2:"PortServer 16" range=*
snmp run=on auth_trap=off
snmp trap_dest=
snmp location=""
snmp contact="Don Carlos Abrams"

Now you can exit if you choose or review the configuration. e.g.

cpconf term

At this point you should confirm that the PortServer completes its power-on self test. All being well, the PortServer is now ready for operation. Good Luck...
