Configuring the rg reviewing the settings

Configuring the RG Reviewing the settings

  • Settings can be reviewed prior to uploading changes in the RG

  • Screen looks identical (as shown) for:

    • Cable Modem

    • ISDN/DSL Device

    • LAN Infrastructure

  • When user-defined IP settings are selected the “Overview of your Settings” screen will display:

Configuring the RG Changing the access password

  • Access to configurator can be protected by user defined password

  • Default is off (public)

  • When passwords are entered user is prompted for the password before being able to obtain the configuration file

    Note:

    • When starting the set-up utility for the first time, the password is changed from “public” to the value of the RG identification

    • So when using a different tool then the set-up utility (e.g. the AP Manager) after having used the set-up utility, the RG identifier has to be used as SNMP password


Configuring the rg advanced parameters

  • If same segment also includes OrINOCO AP-500 and AP-1000 devices, these show up in the scan list as well

  • Selecting an RG for configuration implies clicking its IP address (or entering it in the appropriate field) and click “Edit”


Configuring the rg alternative using the ap manager entering password

Configuring the RG (alternative)Using the AP Manager - entering password

  • To access an RG for configuration, an Read/Write password has to be supplied:

  • Key length depends on capability of RG:

    • RG-1000: 5 ASCII characters or 10 Hex characters

    • RG-1100: 5 or 13 ASCII characters, or 10 or 26 Hex characters

    • If long keys are used all clients that wirelessly communicate with the RG need to be capable of handling long keys (Gold cards)


Configuring the rg alternative using the ap manager rg ip setting

Configuring the RG (alternative)Using the AP Manager - RG IP setting

    • System name

    • System location

      Note:

    • The system name contains as part of the string, the RG identification (e.g. 23cc38)

    • The set-up utility (previous slides) looks for the RG identification in this string; changing the name (removing the RG identification) will disable the proper operation of the set-up utility


Configuring the rg alternative using the ap manager access control

Configuring the RG (alternative)Using the AP Manager - Access Control

  • To restrict access to the RG to a group of known wireless stations, their MAC addresses can be recorded in the RG
