Firstly configure the terminal server, as shown in Figure E-2. This figure uses the system name example, with IP address 10.1.2.3, address mask 255.255.255.0, gateway address 10.1.2.254, and DNS server address 10.1.1.1. Replace these addresses with the addresses used in your network.
Figure E-2. Portmaster unit configuration
set sysname example set password PASSWORD set ether0 address 10.1.2.3 set ether0 netmask 255.255.255.0 set ether0 broadcast high set gateway 10.1.2.254 set namesvc dns set nameserver 10.1.1.1 save all
Now configure each serial port of the terminal server, as shown in Figure E-3.
Figure E-3. Portmaster port configuration
set s0 service_device telnet 2000 set s0 device reset s0 set s1 service_device telnet 2001 set s1 device reset s1 … set s29 service_device telnet 2029 set s29 device reset s29 save all
To connect to serial port 0 enter the command telnet example 2000. Use the associated TCP port number to connect to telnet to the other serial devices.
