Sixnet Cellular Routers in the IndustrialPro and EnterprisePro series support out of band management via the Advanced menu.
The “Out-Of-Band Mgt” menu item allows you to configure the capability of remotely administrating a third-party device connected via a serial cable on the Sixnet router.
NOTE: Please refer to the third-party device user manual and/or technical support to determine what type of connection is required to connect with the Sixnet router from the RS232 serial port.
- Click on the “Out-of-Band Mgt” menu item and the following window will appear:
- Click on the “Add” button to add an instance for OOB Management and the following pop-up window will appear:
Select Interface: Select the interface to be used via the provided drop-down.
NOTE: For Speed, Bits, Parity, and Stop Bits, consult the configuration of the remote device being attached; this setting must be compatible.
Select Speed: Select the desired interface speed to be used via the provided drop-down.
Select Bits / Char: Select the word length (bits per character) to be used via the provided drop-down.
Select Parity: Select the parity to be used via the provided drop-down.
Select # of Stop Bits / Char: Select the number of stop bits to be used via the provided drop-down.
Enter Port #: Enter a valid port number (1-65535) to be used for the connection.
WARNING: Take care to choose a port number not already used by other system services. Consult Status→Socket Statuses→TCP Only for a list of ports currently in use. Please note that a Firewall Allow rule will need to be added for remote access (Networking→Firewall→Service Access Rules).
Use CISCO APH? Select “Yes” to enable the CISCO APH, or “No” to prevent its use. This is useful when connecting to a Cisco console port.
Local Binding? Select “Yes” to enable Local Binding.
NOTE: Local binding will prevent remote access to this port. You will be required to Telnet/SSH to the unit's command line, and then telnet to the OOB port locally (telnet localhost <OOB_port>).
TELNET Server Mode: This option controls how some options negotiations will be performed with a TELNET client.
The following options are available:
- No TELNET options negotiation is performed. Basic
- Common TELNET options negotiation is performed. Basic + drop CR
- Carriage return characters (x'0D) are dropped. Basic + drop CR & NUL (Cisco Preferred)
- CR and NUL (x'00) characters are dropped. Basic + drop CR & NUL/HIGH
- CR, NUL and any characters > x'7F are dropped. Basic + drop LF
- Linefeed characters (x'0A) are dropped. Basic + drop LF & NUL
- LF and NUL (x'00) characters are dropped. Basic + drop LF & NUL/HIGH
- LF, NUL and any characters > x'7F are dropped.
NOTE: Selecting the right value for your particular situation may require some experimentation.
The Basic Telnet Server will enable some telnet negotiation options with common Telnet Clients, which may provide a better user experience. If you are having problems with odd echoed characters, or other interactive problems, please enable this option.
If you are having problems with login not accepting your password, or pressing “Enter” seems to behave as if two Enter keys have been pressed, try one of the "Drop" options.
- Click on the “Finish” button to populate the Out-Of-Band Management screen
