Introduction

Initial Setup

Required network

You must configure the following network settings of the MasterSwitch

settings

PDU before it can operate on a network:

 

IP address of the unit

 

• Subnet Mask

 

IP address of the default gateway

 

Note: If a default gateway is not present, enter anIP address

 

of a computer that is on the same subnet and that is

 

always active.

Configuring TCP/IP

To configure TCP/IP settings, seeTCP/IP on page 15 and see the

settings

MasterSwitch Installation and Quick Start Manual, included in printed

 

form with the MasterSwitch PDU and in Portable Document Format

 

(Install.pdf) on thisCD-ROM.

Customizing your

After you configure MasterSwitch network settings, no further

configuration

configuration is required. The remaining MasterSwitch properties are

 

pre-configuredto default settings at the factory. However, you may want

 

to customize these properties for your application. For more information,

 

see Managing the MasterSwitch PDU on page 5.

Auto-configuration

The management card within the MasterSwitch PDU supports an auto-

 

configuration utility that you can use to create a configuration file, which

 

you can then download to other MasterSwitch PDUs, either to individual

 

units one at a time or to multiple units at the same time. For more

 

information, see the Management Card Addendum(addendum.pdf

 

on the MasterSwitch CD-ROM).

Managing the MasterSwitch PDU

Management Interfaces

Management

After you configure a MasterSwitch PDU with the proper network

Options

settings, you can manage the unit remotely through its Web, Telnet

 

Control Console, SNMP, and WAP interfaces.

 

You can also use the Control Console to manage a MasterSwitch PDU

 

locally through a serial connection.

 

Only one user at a time can access a MasterSwitch PDU. Serial

 

interface users (using a terminal emulator) have precedence over Telnet

 

users, and Telnet users have precedence over Web and WAP users.

Web interface To access and log on to the Web interface of the MasterSwitchPDU:

1.In the URL Location field of the Web browser, do one of the following:

If the Web port of the MasterSwitch PDU is set to the default value of 80, enterhttp:// followed by the unit’sIP address. The following example shows a typicalIP address:

http://170.241.17.51

If the Web port of the MasterSwitch PDU is set to a value other than the default of80, enter the SystemIP address (theIP address of the unit) followed by a colon and the configured Web port value (8000 in the following example).

http://170.241.17.51:8000

If there is a DNS server entry for the MasterSwitchPDU, you can choose to enter theDNS name to access the unit.

both the Administrator user name and the Administrator password is

 

apc (lowercase). After you log on, you can change the user name,

 

password, and time-outvalues through the System menu. SeeUser

 

Manager on page 18.

 

Note: Some Web interface features (data verification, Assistant

 

Online, and MD5 authentication) require that you enable

 

JavaScript or Java on your web browser, and MD5

 

authentication also requires that you have cookies enabled.

Control Console In addition to or instead of using the Web interface, you can use theinterface Control Console to manage the MasterSwitchPDU by one of the

following modes of access:

Telnet, for remote management.

A serial interface, for local management.

Telnet. To access the unit’s Control Console:

1.Choose Connect, then Remote Server.

2.Type the IP address of the MasterSwitch PDU.

3.Click the Connect button.
