Preface

Audience

Contents

The Verilink NetEngine Family IAD User Guide contains the information you need to install, connect and configure each Verilink NetEngine IAD in a customer’s premises.

This guide is intended for network engineers and other professionals in the telecommunications industry who are engaged in the installation, configuration, management and support of telephone and computer networks, network access products, and related equipment.

The guide contains the following chapters and appendixes:

This preface describes the audience, how this guide is organized, safeguards you should always observe, how to contact Verilink for support and other business, and warranty and regulatory notices.

Chapter 1, Introduction on page 1, introduces the features of each IAD in the NetEngine IAD 6000 and 7000 families, including the hardware, indicators and ports.

Chapter 2, Quick Start Guide on page 9, describes the process of getting an IAD up and running in a typical customer premises. This chapter is helpful if you’re new to Verilink IADs, because it lists each step, beginning with unpacking the IAD. It also provides information about logging on, using the menu interface, setting the IP address, basic configuration tasks and restarting the IAD. Once you’ve read this chapter, you’ll be wellprepared to use the remaining reference chapters.

Chapter 3, Administration on page 23, provides information about IAD security, configuring Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), upgrading ACOS, system utilities and other topics.

Chapter 4, WAN Configuration on page 51, details how to configure the NetEngine IAD for physical connection to the network—T1/E1 and xDSL, Frame Relay and ATM, and TDM Voice for channelized T1 circuits.

Chapter 5, Router Configuration on page 103 describes the steps to configure the IAD as a router, including setting IP addresses, static routes, configuring RIP, DNS Client, DHCP Client and other router settings.

Chapter 6, Bridge Configuration on page 129, provides details about setting up the IAD as a bridge, including setting bridging globally or by port, setting the aging timer, and enabling Spanning Tree support.

Chapter 11, NAT Configuration on page 189, describes the steps required to configure the IAD to perform Network Address Translation (NAT).

Chapter 12, IAD Reports on page 201, describes each report you can run.

Chapter 13, Command Line Interface on page 243, describes how to enter and exit CLI mode, and how to use each command in the command line interface. You may use these commands instead of using the corresponding commands in the menu interface.

Chapter 14, Troubleshooting and Diagnostics on page 259, shows you how to troubleshoot and diagnose your IAD configuration when abnormal symptoms occur in the voice or computer network.

Chapter 15, Verification on page 271, describes the steps you take to verify normal operation once you’ve installed, connected and configured the IAD. It also covers maintenance and how to display the current configuration.

Appendix A, Menu Map on page 275, provides a graphic view of the IAD menu interface, illustrating its navigation and organization.

Appendix B, Country Codes on page 277, lists the specifications for each country code supported in the IAD.

Appendix C, NetEngine IAD Specifications on page 279, lists the specifications for each IAD.

Appendix D, Connector Pinouts on page 289, provides interface pinout information for each type of port on the 6000 and 7000 family of IADs.

Safeguards You should read and understand the following precautions and warnings before using the NetEngine IAD. You should post these precautions in a clearly visible location near each IAD.

The Safety status of the SLIC ports on this product are defined as TNV -2. Therefore, cables attached to them should not be subject to over voltage. To ensure this they should not leave the building in which the Unit is installed.

Close supervision is necessary when the system is used by or near children. Do not leave unattended while in use.

Only use electrical extension cords with a current rating equal to that of the system.

Always disconnect the system from power before cleaning and servicing and when not in use.

All NetEngine products except the NE6100-4 have been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a Commercial environment. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference in which case the user will be required to correct the interference at his own expense.

The NE6100-4 has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not in-stalled and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:

Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.

Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.

Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.

Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.

An FCC compliant telephone cord and modular plug is provided with this equipment. This equipment is designed to be connected to the telephone network or premises wiring using a compatible modular jack that is Part 68 compliant. See installation instructions for details. The REN is useful to determine the quantity of devices you may connect to your telephone line and still have all those devices ring when your telephone number is called. In most, but not all areas, the sum of the RENs of all devices connected to one line should not exceed five (5). To be certain of the number of devices you may connect to your line, as determined by the REN, you should contact your local telephone company to determine the maximum REN for your calling area.

NOTE: REN is associated with loop-start and ground-start ports. Do not use for E&M or digital ports.

If your telephone equipment causes harm to the telephone network, the Telephone Company may discontinue your service temporarily. If possible, they will notify you in advance. However, if advance notice is not practical, you will be notified as soon as possible. You will be informed of your right to file a complaint with the FCC.

Your telephone company may make changes in its facilities, equipment, operations, or procedures that could effect the proper functioning of your equipment. If they do, you will be notified in advance to give you an opportunity to maintain uninterrupted telephone service.

If you experience trouble with the NE6100-4 or NE6200-8, please contact Verilink for information on obtaining service or repairs. The Telephone Company may ask that you disconnect this equipment from the network until the problem has been corrected or until you are sure that the equipment is not malfunctioning. No user serviceable parts are contained in this equipment. This equipment may not be used for coin service provided by the Telephone Company. Connection to party lines is subject to state tariffs.

In most installations, you’ll proceed through these topics in order. If your situation varies, complete information on installation, connection, configuration and troubleshooting is contained in the reference chapters following this chapter.

NOTE When the IAD prompts you for input, the current value is displayed in parentheses. To conveniently accept the current value, just press Enter.

NetEngine IAD User Guide

Quick Start Guide

Unpacking

the IAD

10

Each IAD is packed and shipped in a durable container. If you haven’t already done so, open the container and unpack the IAD. Carefully remove the IAD from the package and packing material.

IAD Package Components

Each IAD is shipped with the components listed below. As you unpack them, note their condition and identity, and compare the list to the packing list in the package.

AC power adapter and cord (6 feet long), or AC power cord

Agency Compliance information sheet

Ethernet cable (straight through), 7 feet long

WAN cable (varies by interface), 7 feet long

If you note any visible damage, or components are missing, notify the shipping company immediately to make a damage claim. Contact the company from which the IAD was purchased (Verilink, or an authorized distributor) to obtain a Return Material Authorization (RMA) for return of damaged equipment, or to order missing components.

NOTE We suggest you keep the shipping container and packing material for future shipping or storage of the unit.

Installing

the IAD

After you unpack the IAD, find a suitable location to install the IAD in the customer’s premises. Ideal locations include computer equipment room, or a telephone or wiring closet. You can locate the IAD in an equipment rack, on a table or shelf, or it may be wall-mounted. Install the IAD in a location that is generally protected and the IAD will be undisturbed.

AC Power and Uninterruptible Power Supply

The IAD requires access to AC power (NEMA 15-3R). Make sure the IAD is located within six feet of an AC power outlet. Locate the nearest power outlet and plug in the supplied AC power adapter or AC power cord. If there is an uninterruptible power supply on premises, plug the AC power adapter or cord into that power source.

Ensure that the power cord conveniently and safely reaches the rear panel of the IAD where the power plug or adapter jack is located.

6000 Family Do not attach the AC power adapter, or power up the unit at this time.

7000 Family Plug in the power cord, but do not power up the unit

Clearance Requirements

If you install the IAD horizontally, make sure you maintain at least 2 inches of horizontal distance from other IADs or other electronic equipment, to ensure adequate ventilation and heat dissipation. If you install the IAD

NetEngine IAD User Guide

Quick Start Guide

11

vertically, ensure at least 3 inches of distance between other IADs or other equipment.

NOTE 6000 family IADs may be stacked on top of one another, when mounted horizontally. 7000 family IADs may be rack mounted.

Wiring Requirements

Connect via Terminal Emulator

Make sure that the telephone wiring, LAN and WAN cables reach the IAD and can be dressed in a manner that is safe for the wiring, does not pull or create lateral stress on the connectors or ports on the rear of the IAD, and does not present a trip hazard to personnel working in the vicinity of the equipment. Do not connect any cables or wiring at this time.

The IAD is configured and managed from either the console or Ethernet port. Most network engineers use Telnet to access the IAD via Ethernet. After you use a terminal emulator program via the console port to set the IP address, you may continue to use a terminal emulator via the console port if you choose.

NOTE After a period of inactivity (three minutes by default), the IAD automatically terminates console-based and Telnet sessions to maintain security. To change this value, see Configuring the Console Timeout Period on page 38.

Before you can connect to the IAD via Telnet, make sure the IP address is set correctly for this network. To do so, follow the steps, each described in detail below:

1.Connect the IAD to a PC

2.Log in to the IAD

3.Set the IP address

NOTE Be sure that the IAD and PC are both powered OFF before connecting the console cable. If both devices are not turned off when you connect the cables, you may place the IAD in an unstable state, and you may need to reset one or both devices before you can perform configuration tasks.

Connect the IAD to a PC

To connect the IAD to a PC via the console port:

1.Turn off both devices and insert the male connector of a DB9 serial cable into the console port on the IAD.

2.Insert the female connector of the cable into a serial (COM) port on your PC.

NOTE See RS-232 DB-9 Console Port Pin Assignments on page 289 for console port specifications.

NetEngine IAD User Guide

Quick Start Guide

NOTE When you configure the IAD, you must restart the IAD each time you change the settings for those changes to take effect. You may make several configuration changes before resetting if you choose, for efficiency.

Resetting

the IAD

If you plan to use Telnet for configuration tasks, this is a good time to disconnect the serial cable from the PC and IAD.

Many configuration tasks require that you reset (or restart) the IAD before the new settings or configuration will take effect. When you use the menu interface (or the Command Line Interface on page 243) to make changes, or change the physical characteristics of the IAD (such as changing the Ethernet port MAC address), you must reset the IAD.

The IAD stores all configuration settings in memory. When it restarts, it loads the last configuration saved before it was powered down or restarted. When restarting is required, it will be included as a step in the configuration process.

You can reset the IAD in two ways.

To reset the IAD from the menu:

1.On the Main menu, type R to select Reset System. The IAD displays the following instructions:

Press R to Reset now->

2.Type R again. This resets and starts the IAD with your new settings.

3.To log in again, enter your user ID and password.

To reset the IAD manually:

On a 6000 family IAD, unplug the power adapter from the IAD and then plug it back into the IAD. On a 7000 family IAD, turn the IAD off, then back on. Be sure to complete your task and return to the Main menu before restarting the IAD in this manner.

CAUTION Resetting the IAD terminates all telephone calls and computer sessions in progress. You should ensure that there no services are being rendered before resetting the IAD.

NetEngine IAD User Guide

Quick Start Guide

Connecting via Telnet

16

To manage the IAD via the LAN (or Intranet), you must set an IP address for the Ethernet port before you can use Telnet to access the IAD.

NOTES Although you can also access the IAD using Telnet via the WAN (provided a management DLCI or PVC is configured along with a WAN IP address), this section describes connecting via the LAN. For information about setting the IP address of the WAN port, see Chapter 6, WAN Configuration on page 51.

If you configure a RADIUS server, you must use a RADIUSauthenticated User ID/password for Telnet access. If the RADIUS server or the connection to the RADIUS server goes down, Telnet access will not work. For information about configuring a RADIUS server, see RADIUS Server Settings on page 27.

Running Telnet

Before you use Telnet to log in to the IAD, make sure that the IAD and your PC are connected to the same network via straight-through Ethernet cables (or directly connected via a cross-over cable), and you know the IP address of the IAD. Both devices must be on the same subnet.

Follow these steps to log in:

1.Run Telnet on your PC.

2.Type the IP address of the Ethernet port (page 13), click Connect and then press Enter to gain the attention of the IAD.

3.The IAD responds by displaying the log in message:

Enter Login ID >

4.Type your user ID and press Enter.

NOTE After a period of inactivity (three minutes by default), the IAD automatically terminates console-based and Telnet sessions to maintain security. To change this value, see Configuring the Console Timeout Period on page 38.

Default user IDs and passwords are listed in Table 2–2 on page 12. For information on security levels, and user ID and password management see IAD Security on page 24.

Navigating the IAD Menu Interface

Menus in the IAD configuration system are arranged hierarchically. That is, you select single-key options to navigate down to display specialized menus and specific tasks, and press the Escape key successively to return back to menus higher in the interface.

The specific menus, submenus and commands that display depend on the interfaces for the specific IAD, the options configured and the security level that you use to log in.

To select a menu item, just type the option displayed to the left of the item. Although character options are displayed in upper case, the IAD accepts both upper and lower case options. It is not necessary to press Enter after typing the selection to execute it—the IAD immediately responds with a request for input or another menu for more options.

For a hierarchical map of the Main menu, its menus and commands, see Appendix A, Menu Map on page 275.

Entering Settings and Values

When the IAD requests input for a setting or configuration value, type it at the prompt. Press the Enter key to terminate the input and proceed to the next step.

The IAD responds with error messages if a value is incorrect, or it displays the current menu so you can continue with related tasks.

Using Default or Current Values

The IAD displays a default or current value in parentheses immediately to the right of each message, just to the left of the command prompt. To accept this value, just press the Enter key.

For example, when the following message displays:

Enter a new subnet mask for this interface:

(255.255.255.0) -)

You may press Enter to cause the IAD to set 255.255.255.0 as the subnet mask value. Using the Enter key to skip through default or current values often speeds the process of proceeding through a family of input steps, to quickly get to the input step where you want to change a value.

Exiting the Menu Interface

Basic IAD Configuration

Connecting

LAN, WAN,

USI and

Telephones

To exit the menu interface, return to the Main menu using the Escape key, and press Escape one more time. The IAD asks you to confirm—press Y to exit (or press Return to accept the default value (N) to cancel the exit). After exiting, you can quit the terminal emulator or Telnet application. If you made changes to the configuration that require resetting the IAD, be sure to do so before exiting.

Each IAD has a default configuration when it is shipped from the factory. At a minimum, you should view the configuration and check the following settings for probable update for each customer installation:

1. Configure the LAN IP address, if not already completed (page 13)

2.Configure each of the WAN options and the DSLAM profile (WAN Configuration on page 51)

3.Create and configure at least one DLCI (page 93) or PVC (page 81) for data traffic and set the WAN IP address (WAN Configuration on page 51.)

4.Configure static or default route or enable bridging for all data traffic

5.Create and configure a DCLI (page 93) or PVC (page 81) for voice where required and select appropriate voice gateway settings.

6.Reset the IAD (page 15) to enable all configuration changes.

In this section, you’ll connect the IAD to the computer and telephone systems the IAD is intended to support.

Before proceeding, make sure that you have an appropriate serial cable for your PC, identify the LAN switching equipment where you’ll connect the IAD, identify the telephone cables, and verify that WAN service is installed, and configured by the service provider.

When you’ve completed this section, reset the IAD so it can synchronize these physical connections.

Ethernet LAN Connection

The Ethernet LAN port on the rear of the IAD is an RJ45 jack for 10/ 100Base-T Ethernet cables. If the IAD is intended to act as an Internet gateway for the LAN in the customer’s premises, connect the IAD to the switch, hub or router using an Ethernet straight-through cable.

NOTE To temporarily connect the IAD directly to a PC for Telnet configuration (without going through a hub or router), be sure to use an Ethernet cross-over cable (customer-supplied).

WAN Connections

WAN connections vary, based on the WAN interface on your IAD. Identify the WAN interface on your IAD, and proceed to the appropriate section.

NetEngine IAD User Guide

Quick Start Guide

21

Making G.SHDSL Connections

G.SHDSL-equipped IADs use an RJ11 connector on the rear panel for WAN connection. To make the connection, plug the WAN cable into the RJ11 WAN connector. Table D–7 on page 290 lists the G.SHDSL connector pinouts.

Making SDSL or ADSL Connections

SDSLand ADSL-equipped IADs use an RJ45 connector on the rear panel for WAN connection. To make the connection, plug the xDSL cable into the RJ45 WAN connector. Table D–6 on page 290 lists the RJ45 WAN pinouts.

Making T1/E1 Connections

T1/E1-equipped IADs use an RJ48 connector on the IAD rear panel for WAN connection. To make the connection, plug the cable from the ATM network into the RJ48 WAN connector. Table D–8 on page 291 lists the pinouts for the T1/E1 connector.

USI Connection (7200, 7300)

7300

7200

7000 family IADs have a Universal Serial Interface (USI) port,

 

7300

configurable for V.35 or EIA-530 (page 37).

If your IAD is equipped with a USI port, you may connect it now. Located on the rear panel, the port uses a shielded, DB25 connector. The connector is DCE—data is transmitted on the receive pin and received on the transmit pin.

The V.35 or EIA-530 interfaces use different voltage levels. You must supply the appropriate cable for each interface. Table D–9 on page 291 lists the USI port pinouts and signal specifications.

Telephone Connections

6000 family IADs provide 4 or 8 RJ11 ports for POTS devices, or ISDN connectors for telephone service. 7000 family IADs provide an RJ21X Amphenol-style connector for connecting up to 16 telephone devices.

These devices may be POTS telephones, modems, FAX machines, or other POTS-compatible devices.

Making RJ11 Connections (6000 family)

The RJ11 POTS port pinouts are telco standard (RJ11 POTS Port Pin Assignments on page 289). Connect each telephone device to the RJ11 jacks using 26AWG telephone cord or better (user provided).

Making ISDN Connections (6104i, 6504i)

The RJ45 BRI IDSN S0 ports are telco standard (RJ45 BRI ISDN S0 Port Pin Assignments on page 289). Connect each ISDN cable from the ISDN terminal equipment to the S0 ports on the back of the IAD using 4-wire cable. The ports provide PS1 and PS2 powering for ISDN telephones, at 10 power consumption units per port.

Confirming

Proper

Setup

Making RJ21X Connections (7000 family)

The pin assignments for the RJ21X connector are telco standard. Connect telephone devices from an RJ11 jack field, or a punch down block. Each line provides a two-wire loop or groundstart connection. To perform the connection, use a customer-provided cable terminated at one end with an RJ21X connector. After connecting each color-coded wire pair to the corresponding telephone connection on the jack field or punchdown block, connect the RJ21X connector to the connector on the IAD rear panel.

When you have completed the tasks in this chapter, reset the IAD and test your configuration.

Reset the IAD

Reset the IAD (page 15) to synchronize the physical connections.

Verify Normal Power Up and Operation

Finally, to test your configuration for proper data and voice operation, perform the operational test (Operational Test on page 272).

IAD

Security

24

To maintain IAD security, the IAD provides multi-level login access using a single user ID and password, which you can set at the following levels:

User

Network Administrator

Supervisor

The user ID at the User security level may be modified, but the user ID at the Network Administrator and Supervisor level may not be modified.

The password for each security level may be changed. Although you may use the same password for all security levels, Verilink recommends that you use a different one for each level. Table 3–2 lists the privileges available at each security level.

Table 3–1. Security Level Privileges

Security level

including changing User security level user ID

 

and any level passwords, plus complete IAD

 

configuration capability.

Network Administrator

This user may perform tasks that alter the

 

network settings of the IAD, plus has access to

 

all of the data networking configuration menus,

 

and can update routing and bridging

 

information and status.

 

This user can change this level password, and

 

the User level user ID and password, and has

 

access to all display-only menus.

 

This user may not modify WAN or LAN

 

settings, alter derived timing, use command

 

line interface, or modify voicepath settings.

Changing the User Level User ID

To change the user ID for the User security level (the only security level that allows the user ID to be changed), follow these steps:

1.On the Main menu, type 8 (Configure Login) to display the Password Configuration menu.

2.Type 1 to change the user ID for the User security level.

Enter new User ID (up to 17 characters) >

3.Type the new User ID and press Enter. The IAD informs you that the user ID has been updated.

4.Reset the IAD (page 15).

Including User ID and Passwords in Config Files

If you create master configuration files for distribution to multiple IADs, you may include the userid and passwords directly in the configuration file to reduce configuration tasks.

NOTE When the user ID and passwords are stored in a configuration file, the IAD saves the configuration file immediately upon rebooting, without requiring the log on process. The userid and passwords are stripped from the configuration file before saving to prevent a security risk.

Using a text editor, update the config file by adding the following attributes in the [user] category:

userid={string}

password={string}

netman-password={string}

support-password={string}

The password parameter is for user level access; netman-password is for network administrator level access; and support-password is for supervisor level access.

Upgrading

the System

33

Periodically, Verilink may provide new software that you will download to the IAD to upgrade the system. You must use TFTP to perform the file transfer when upgrading the entire system.

NOTE Some gateways directly support file transfer as a means of upgrading IADs. For information, refer to the Voice Gateway manufacturer’s operating manual.

To use TFTP, you must configure both the IAD and the computer that contains the TFTP Server program, a program that you license separately.

Using TFTP Servers via LAN or WAN

Before the IAD can access a LAN or Intranet-based TFTP server, you must configure the IP address of the Ethernet port (page 13) on the same subnet as your TFTP server, and the IAD must be connected to the LAN.

To access a WAN-based server, you must configure the T1/E1 or xDSL Interface with a management DLCI or PVC and a WAN IP address. For information about setting the IP address of the WAN port, see Chapter 6, WAN Configuration on page 51.

Copying the Source Files

Typically, you will receive two ZIP files (a core ZIP file and an application ZIP file) for each upgrade.

First, extract each file into a single directory on your PC. Then, set the directory as the path that the TFTP Server will use to send files to the IAD (often identified as upload/download or outbound directory).

Upgrading via TFTP

If your TFTP Server is not running, start it now and note the IP address of the computer it is running on. To upgrade the IAD software:

1. On the Main menu, type 9 to display the Utilities menu:

4.The IAD displays the following:

****Download using TFTP ****

Enter ip address of TFTP server. (98.121.1.167) ->

5. Type the IP address of the TFTP Server and press Enter.

As file transfer progresses, the IAD reports the status of each file being copied. Two files—acos.bin and boot.bin—will only be copied if they match the platform, to guard against loading incorrect system files onto an IAD.

NOTE If the IAD cannot locate the first file to download (typically release.dat), the update will fail. Make sure you have assigned a valid IP address and subnet mask, and you’re on the same subnet as the TFTP Server. Use the Ping command to successfully ping the IAD and try again.

Upon completion, the IAD reports the success or failure of these files specifically, and then reports the completion of file transfer and resets.

NOTE For more information, refer to “Upgrading Imbedded Software on an IAD with TFTP” from Verilink.

Verifying the Upgrade

To verify that the files downloaded successfully, observe the boot sequence. The IAD displays the software version in the Verilink banner:

Configuring the Console Timeout Period

To maintain security, you can set the amount of time a console or Telnet session remains alive before termination due to inactivity. To set the timeout period, follow these steps:

1.Type V on the Utilities menu to display this message and prompt:

Console timeout is currently disabled.

Enter new console timeout in minutes, 0 to disable timeout. (0-60) [0]:

2.Type the timeout value—a value between 0-60 minutes (default 3), and press Enter. Enter 0 (zero) to disable the timeout feature.

CAUTION When the timeout value is set to zero, sessions will stay alive indefinitely, and may pose a security risk.

Quitting a terminal emulator session does not terminate the console port session. You must log off before quitting to avoid creating a security risk.

Performing a Hard Reset

When you perform a hard reset, the IAD resets, using all values set during the active session and reloads ACOS from flash memory. To perform a hard reset, follow these steps:

1.Type R on the Utilities menu. The IAD displays the following:

Sure you want to do a Hard Reset? (Y/N)->

2.Enter Y to immediately perform a hard reset and reload ACOS.

Managing Configuration Files

Each IAD is shipped with a default configuration set, in the file default.st. Once you make any changes to your IAD, a new file is created to store the new configuration— config.st—to preserve the default settings.

After you have configured the IAD for correct operation in a customer’s premises, the current system settings in the config.st file may be saved as the default configuration file, and you may choose to set the IAD to boot from this file each time it is reset. You may also copy this file to a PC or TFTP server for downloading to other identically configured IADs. Once you have copied over the detault.st file, you cannot retrieve it. You should consider copying the default.st file to a safe location before replacing it.

Setting System Defaults

You may set the IAD to boot from the modified configuration settings (config.st), or boot from the factory-supplied configuration file (default.st). To choose, follow these steps:

1. Type D on the Utilities menu.

1.Type W on the Utilities menu. The IAD displays the following:

WARNING: Saving System settings as Custom Defaults Press Y to Save Defaults->

2.Type Y to delete the default.st file and save the current configuration (stored in config.st) as default.st, permanently destroying the factorysupplied configuration file.

The IAD saves the custom configuration file as the default configuration file and displays the Utility menu.

Displaying the Event Log

To display the event log, type E.

Identifying your WAN Interface and Datalink Protocol

The sections you’ll use to perform WAN configuration depend on the IAD model and the datalink protocol you choose.

Voice and data traffic are each carried in their own PVCs (ATM protocol) or DLCIs (Frame Relay protocol). You may define up to 8 PVCs or DLCIs for voice and data.

For a voice circuit, a single PVC or DLCI can carry the voice traffic for all voice ports on the IAD. Voicepath configuration is described in a separate chapter— Voice Path Configuration on page 139.

To proceed, identify your IAD and datalink protocol in the tables following, and perform the listed tasks.
