Introduction

Introduction

Making Your System Secure

It is vital to your business that your system is secured. There are different aspects of security that your System Administrator should consider. This is particularly important for any system that supports dialled access and Internet connection. The IP Networking Cassette (IPNC) includes several security features to help prevent unauthorised access and it is recommended that you implement them as a priority.

It is your responsibility to provide additional security for your network and any sensitive information.

It is recommended that the System Administrator take the following steps:

1.Change the system passwords immediately after handover. See Changing Operator Profile Passwords on page21.

2.Change the default password for user ‘RemoteManager’. See Remote Operation on page31.

3.Ensure that he or she and all users change their passwords on a regular basis, at least every 90 days.

4.Change all passwords if there is any doubt as to the integrity of the system or existing passwords.

5.Delete the user profile for members of staff who leave the company. See User Configuration on page44 and the details for any data services which are removed.

6.Implement the Firewall facility

See Firewall Configuration on page58.

7.Carry out security checks on a regular basis.

It is also important to safeguard all software supplied with the IPNC. The software CD should be kept in a safe place and you should transfer your most recent configuration file to suitable media for safekeeping.

See Configuration Files on page23.

Use of this Manual

This manual covers the installation/upgrading of an Avaya ™ IP Networking Cassette (IPNC) operating on software Level 3.2 and an INDeX system operating software Level 10.0+ or higher.

This manual basically consists of four parts as follows:

Part 1: Installation and Software Upgrades

Part 2: The Manager Application, Configuration Tree menus; their contents and use.

Part 3: A set of worked example in aHow do I? section.

Part 4: Appendixes containing General Information/Concepts, an Overview of IP Routing plus port and cable details.

For installation of IPNCs operating a Level 2.0+, refer to issue 6 of this manual.

This guide is intended for use by installers who are familiar with the INDeX system and have successfully completed the appropriate INDeX training courses.

Ensure that you have read and understood this Guide before beginning installation.

The IP Networking Cassette Introduction

The INDeX offers the advantages of integrated voice and data communications to small and medium sized organisations. An IPNC provides a wide range of facilities and can support many applications, both at a single site and at dispersed locations. The IPNC provides fast flexible Internet access, implements e-commercestrategies, Remote Access Solutions and Voice over IP.

The IPNC Voice-over-IPsolution can fully utilise all of the available bandwidth, providing significant line rental savings. The IPNC utilises voice compression techniques to optimise speech quality against cost and has up to 20 compressed voice channels (to G.723.1 / G.729a standards).

The IPNC is designed to provide a custom solution that is both easy to use and easy to manage, with secure data transmissions. Principal features of the products are:

-Secure Internet access and data services.

-Intranet / wide area capability.

-Dynamic addressing with an integrated DHCP server.

-TCP/IP routing.

-Dynamic bandwidth management for data services.

-Voice-over-IP(VoIP).

-Network Address Translation, for added Internet security and local IP addressing flexibility.

-Firewall to protect against intrusion from the Internet, the wide area, and by dial-inaccess.

-Remote Access Server (RAS) for custom dial-indata services.

-Remotely Manageable.

-Timebands - to restrict access to when, and only when, it is needed and authorised.

-Encrypted Passwords - to allow access only by authorised users. All data service activity is password-controlled.

Introduction

The IPNC Hardware

The IP Networking Cassette is available as six variants as follows:

IPNC : Suitable for Internet Access only solutions.

All IPNCs are equipped with a minimum of two 64K B channels, an X.21/V35/V24 lease line port, one 10BaseT Ethernet port plus one auto-sensing10/100BaseT Ethernet port.

IPNC-VC5: An IPNC with a 5 Channel voice compression module. Suitable for Internet Access or, if used with theLIC-IPNC32Licence, remote access from TAs and Routers, and Voice over IP applications.

IPNC-VC: An IPNC with a 20 Channel voice compression module. Suitable for Internet Access or, if used with theLIC-IPNC32Licence, Remote Access from TAs and Routers, and Voice over IP applications.

IPNC-M :An IPNC suitable for Internet Access and Remote LAN Access (includes four V.90 modems).

IPNC-M-VC5: IPNC with four V.90 Modems and a 5 Channel voice compression module. Suitable for Internet Access or, if used with theLIC-IPNC32Licence, Voice over IP applications and Remote Access from TAs Routers, and Modems.

IPNC-M-VC: An IPNC with four V.90 Modems and a 20 Channel voice compression module. Suitable for Internet Access or, if used with theLIC-IPNC32Licence, Voice over IP applications and Remote Access from TAs Routers, and Modems.

INDeX Licence Key (LIC-IPNC32)

An optional INDeX Licence Key (LIC-IPNC32)is available to upgrade from the basic two B channels to the fullthirty-two64K Channels. Required whenever there is a requirement for more than two simultaneous calls.

Each IPNC is supplied with a LAN Cable and Administration software on CD (CD- IPNC-ADMIN)containing:

Installation Wizard – for easy initial configuration of system and Internet parameters.

Upgrade Wizard – for upgrading operating software.

The Manager - for configuration/administration of the system and its features.

The Monitor - to display an on-line,time-stampedlog of all call processing events, for all calls or selectively.

Introduction

The Boot Process - Page 7

The Boot Process

The boot process is shown in the diagram below. When reset the IPNC first checks for any directly connected Leased lines. It then checks its configuration, which is stored in “flash memory”.

When first installed, the IPNC has a default configuration, which includes an IP address and specifies DHCP server operation. After initial configuration and subsequent changes, the flash memory may contain a different mode of operation and a new address.

Note: It is critical that any configuration changesmust have been downloaded to the flash memory in order for them to be implemented atstart-up.SeeConfiguration Files on page23.

If the IPNC has a non-defaultconfiguration and address value, it simply adopts the defined mode and address.

Alternatively, if the IPNC is in the configuration mode, it first adopts DHCP Client mode and broadcasts a request for an address. If it receives one, it assumes another server is present and adopts Client mode. If it does not receive an address, it adopts the role of a DHCP Server and will provide IP addresses to clients when they are requested as shown in the following diagram:-
