Prerequisites

Preconfiguration Set Up (which includes installing the OfficeConnect hardware)

Configuration Procedure

Prerequisites

Before you begin installing and configuring your OfficeConnect bridge/router, you must satisfy the following prerequisites:

You must have a PC on your network that will function as your network management station (NMS).

This NMS must have browser software that is compatible with Web Link: either Netscape Navigator 4.08 or later, or Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.01 or later.

Web Link is the web-basednetwork management application that comes with your OfficeConnect NETBuilder bridge/router.

You need to obtain IP addresses and subnet masks for your network.

You will also need to order a leased line and an ISDN line from your telco provider or providers.

When your ISDN line is installed you will receive information regarding the ISDN dial numbers, ISDN switch type, and SPID numbers. Retain this information for use during configuration.
