Set IPSI Static IP Addresses   

For IP Connect Configurations the IPSI circuit packs get static IP addresses, which are adminstered directly through the Ethernet port connection on the IPSI faceplate (top port). See Connecting directly to the IPSI.

Connecting directly to the IPSI   


Figure notes

  1. Services laptop
  2. PCMCIA Network Interface Card (NIC)
  1. NIC adapter cable (if necessary)
  2. Green CAT5 cable to IPSI

CAUTION: If reusing TN2312AP circuit packs that have previously had a static address programmed, you must erase the existing IP address before programming another one. Failure to do this may result in serious network problems for the customer. Use the following procedure to erase an existing IP address assignment:

  1. Plug the TN2312 into Slot 2 of a G600 media gateway or if already plugged in, reseat it (unplug and plug in).
  2. While the letters I P are flashing on the LED display (five seconds), press the recessed pushbutton on the faceplate.
  3. The TN2312 is now ready for another static IP address.
  4. Connect the services laptop computer to the top port on the IPSI circuit pack faceplate.
  5. From the services laptop Start Menu click Start > Run to open the Run dialog box.
  6. Type command and press Enter to open a MSDOS Command Line window.
  7. Type arp -d 192.11.13.6 and press Enter to clear the ARP cache in the laptop. This command will respond with one of the following:
  8. Type telnet 192.11.13.6 and press Enter to open the Telnet window and connect to the IPSI
  9. Prompt = [IPSI]:

NOTE: While connected to the IPSI, type help or ? to obtain online help. Most commands have two or three letter abbreviations.

  1. Type ipsilogin and press Enter.
  2. Log in as craft.
  3. Prompt = [IPADMIN]:

  4. Type set control interface <ipaddr><netmask>, where <ipaddr>is the customer-provided IP address and <netmask> is the customer provided subnet mask. Press Enter.
  5. If required type set control gateway <gateway>, where <gateway> is the customer-provided IP address for their gateway. Press Enter.
  6. If required use the setvlanpri, setvlanid, and setdiffserv commands to enter VLAN and diffserv parameters for the IPSI. Use the help <command> to obtain syntax guidelines for these commands.
  7. Check the LCD. Verify that it has an I P with a filled-in V showing at the bottom. (See LED display showing that the IPSI has a static IP address)

  1. Type quit to logoff the IPSI.

NOTE: Control network settings (IP address, subnet mask, and gateway) will be placed into effect when the user exits the IPADMIN session.

  1. Disconnect the laptop from the faceplate.

NOTE: Always use the arp -d 192.11.13.6 command (step 4) to clear the ARP cache on the laptop before connecting to another IPSI. If the cache is not cleared the laptop will appear to hang and will not connect to the next IPSI.

  1. Repeat for each IPSI circuit pack.
