Ethernet Radio Management
Access5830 firmware v1.1 and later allows network operators TCP/IP access to the SU, regardless of
opmode, provided that switch 6 is ON. For earlier versions of firmware, TCP/IP access to the SU (from Ethernet port) is only possible when the SU is in
Access5830 firmware v1.1 and later allows devices beyond the SU to ping the SU, regardless of
opmode, provided that switch 6 is ON. For all other versions of firmware, devices that are connected to the SU can ping the SU ONLY when it is in
Devices that are connected to the AP can ping the SU (or any other IP traffic) ONLY when TCP/IP (Switch 2) for AP switch is turned on at the SU.
The browser feature can be turned on or off via switch 5 using the command line interface. The command is
sw 5 on/offfor either AP or SU while connected directly. Be sure to save the setting by typing the command
updateflash systemsetting. To change a switch setting of an SU remotely, type the following command at the AP:
su sw [su id] 5 on/off
Yes. With v1.5 and newer firmware it is possible to change an IP address while an SU is in
opmodeSU. However, in order to access an SU via telnet or browser interface (via the AP), it is important that its TCP/IP for AP switch be Enabled. Once you change an IP address, it is important to re-access the radio under the new IP address and perform the command
Use the command
su info [suid].
su sw [suid] [0/1/2] [on/off]
0': Block broadcast Packet (on-block; off-unblock)
1': Auto Scan AP (on-enable; off-disable)
2': Enable TCP/IP for AP (on-enable; off-disable)
This command writes the change to the SU's persistent storage automatically
Yes. The procedure is as follows: (Access5830 AP and SU)
- Connect to the radio via the serial port
- Power cycle the radio
- Press the computer's "Enter" key when you see the "Loader" prompt
- Type in command "
resetpassword" then press enter
- Type "
main" to continue the bootup process
- The radio's password resets to "trango"
