General Conﬁguration Screen Fields
The following information brieﬂy explains each General Conﬁguration Screen ﬁeld.
Module Serial #
Displays the serial number of the selected module.
Module Board Revision
Displays the version number of the selected module.
Displays the amount (megabytes) of ﬂash memory in the selected module.
Contains a value that the module recognizes as the current date. To enter a new date, highlight the ﬁeld and enter the date in MM/DD/YYYY format. The month and day portion of the date must include two digits. Therefore, enter a leading zero for months January through September, and for dates less than 10. For example, for June 4, 1996, enter 06/04/1996 (slashes are optional). If you do not enter slashes to separate the month, day, and year values, the ﬁrst eight digits you enter in this ﬁeld represent an entry (i.e., 06041996).
Contains a value that the module recognizes as the current time. To enter a new time, highlight the ﬁeld and enter the time in HH:MM:SS format. Notice that there is no AM/PM indicator. Time should be entered based upon a
The module’s default date and time settings are indeterminate. The internal calendar and clock begin running as soon as you install the module.
Screen Refresh Time
Contains the rate at which the module’s screens are updated. This setting determines how frequently (in seconds) information is updated on the screen. To enter a new refresh rate, highlight the ﬁeld and enter a number. The default refresh rate is 3 seconds. Therange is 3 - 99 seconds.
Screen Lockout Time
Contains the maximum number of minutes that the Local Management application will display a module’s screen while pending input or action from a user. For example, if you enter 5 in this ﬁeld, users will have up to ﬁve minutes to respond in some fashion to each of the speciﬁed module’s Local Management screens. In our example, after ﬁve minutes of “idleness” (no input or action), the Local Management application terminates the session on the selected module and the Slot Selection Screen reappears. To enter a new lockout time, highlight the ﬁeld and enter a number. The default lockout time is 15 minutes. Therange is
1 - 30 minutes.
Host IP Address
Contains the Internet Protocol address currently assigned to the selected module. Set this ﬁeld according to your network requirements. Highlight the Host IP Address ﬁeld and enter the desired IP address using dotted decimal notation (4 decimal values between 1 and 255 separated by periods). For example, 255.255.255.255.
The maximum number that you can enter in any of the four segments is 255. The default is 0.0.0.0 . Any of the system interfaces on the module can use this address.
Contains the subnet mask for the selected module. A subnet mask “masks out” the network bits of the IP address by setting the bits in the mask to 1 when the network treats the corresponding bits in the IP address as part of the network or subnetwork address, or to 0 if the corresponding bit identiﬁes the host. The default subnet mask uses the ﬁrst two portions of the IP address to identify the network id, leaving the rest of the IP address to identify speciﬁc nodes. To enter a new subnet mask, highlight the ﬁeld and enter a new value using dotted decimal notation (4 decimal values between 1 and 255 separated by periods). For example, 255.255.255.255.
(The Subnet Mask ﬁeld defaults to the natural mask value, based on the IP Address that you entered for the device.)
Contains the IP Address of the device to which all packets addressed to an unknown network or host are sent. If you do not conﬁgure a Default Gateway, any packets that are addressed to an unknown network or host will be dropped. This ﬁeld is not deﬁned until you enter an appropriate value using dotted decimal notation (4 decimal values between 1 and 255 separated by periods). The default is NONE DEFINED, meaning no default gateway selected.
Contains the number that represents the interface that is connected to the module’s Default Gateway. In some instances, dissimilar modules have different corresponding interface numbers. For example, if you are assigning a default interface to a
The Default Interface ﬁeld becomes active after you enter an IP address in the Default Gateway ﬁeld.
Base MAC Address
Displays the MAC Address of the selected module. This is the MAC Address of the
TFTP Gateway IP
The IP address of the router that connects to or is closest to the module. Conﬁgure this address when you are performing TFTP downloads in a routed environment (if proxy ARP is disabled on the router).
Exiting the General Conﬁguration Screen
To exit the General Conﬁguration Screen, use the arrow keys to highlight RETURN, then press the Return key.
