9G421-02/9G429-02Module Specific Information

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.

FLASH Memory

Displays the amount (megabytes) of flash memory in the selected module.

Module Date

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).

Module Time

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 24-hourclock. For 4:07 p.m., enter 16:07:00 (colons are optional). If you do not enter colons to separate the hours, minutes, and seconds values, the first six digits you enter in this field represent an entry (i.e., 160700). For 6:12 a.m., enter 6:12:00 or 061200.

NOTE

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.

9G421-02/9G429-02Module Specific Information

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.

Subnet Mask

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.)

Default Gateway

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.

5

9G421-02/9G429-02Module Specific Information

Default Interface

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 9E133-36module and you enter a 3, then the default interface is the Flexible Network Bus. However, if you are assigning a default interface to a9F310-02module and you enter a 3, then the default interface is the Internal Network Bus. SeeTable 1 formodule-specificinterface information. Thedefault is NONE DEFINED, meaning no default interface selected.

NOTE

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 SMB-10interface.

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.
