SCS4805 System Configuration

Lantronix
I have had several opportunities as of late work with these Lantronix terminal servers. Usually I am connecting older Sun boxes… those without an SC. In this instance I am connecting to a LOM port on a SUN v120 using a straight through Ethernet cable.

First of log into the SCS480 using the sysadmin user id and its password. In this instance I am connected to port 23.

Typing help will show you a list of commands.

Typing direct and then the port number will connect you directly to the port, <ESC>A will disconnect you.

 Entering Direct mode…Server = DEVICE_23
(enter '<ESC>A' to exit, enter '<ESC>B' to generate a break.)

Type listdev to see all the ports, and their names. You should set the name so it corresponds with the server.

Type devices 23 to see how port 23 is configured.

sysadmin-DEVICE_23>devices 23
Enter accepts present value
D23: Enter device name                      | NAME: DEVICE_23>
D23: 0=2400 1=4800, 2=9600, 3=19200,
     4=38400, 5=57600, 6=115200             | BAUD RATE: 9600>
D23: 1=1, 2=2                               | STOP BITS: 1>
D23: 0=None, 1=Odd, 2=Even, 3=Mark, 4=Space | PARITY: NONE>
D23: 6=6, 7=7, 8=8                          | DATA BITS: 8>
D23: 0=OFF, 1=DCE, 2=DTE                    | EQUIP PORT TYPE: DTE>
D23: 0=XON/OFF, 1=RTS/CTS                   | FLOW CONTROL: XON/XOFF>
D23: 0=No, 1=Yes                            | INHIBIT BUFFERING IN DIRECT: No>

To configure the port I need to change the device name and change the EQUIP PORT TYPE to DCE. Click here for more info on DCE/DTE.

Using the devices command you can configure the port. See syntax below

devices –name=devname n
  Set name of device n to devname
 devices –baud=2400|4800|9600|19200|38400|57600|115200 n
  Set baudrate of device n to 2400, 4800, 9600, 19200, 38400, 57600,
              or 115200
 devices –baud=0|1|2|3|4|5|6 n
  Set baudrate of device n to 0=2400 1=4800, 2=9600, 3=19200,
              4=38400, 5=57600, or 6=115200
 devices –stop=1|2 n
  Set stop bits of device n to 1=1, 2=2
 devices –parity=None|Odd|Even|Mark|Space n
  Set parity of device n to None, Odd, Even, Mark, or Space
 devices –parity=0|1|2|3|4 n
  Set parity of device n to 0=None, 1=Odd, 2=Even, 3=Mark, or 4=Space
 devices –data=6|7|8 n
  Set number of data bits of device n to 6, 7, or 8
 devices –type=OFF|DCE|DTE n
  Set port type of device n to OFF, DCE, or DTE
 devices –type=0|1|2 n
  Set port type of device n to 0=OFF, 1=DCE, or 2=DTE
 devices –flow=XON|RTS n
  Set flow control of device n to XON/OFF, or RTS/CTS
 devices –flow=0|1 n
  Set flow control of device n to 0=XON/OFF, or 1=RTS/CTS
 devices –inhibitbuffer=No|Yes n
  Set inhibit buffering of device n to No, or Yes
 devices –inhibitbuffer=0|1 n
  Set inhibit buffering of device n to 0=No, or 1=Yes

Using this info I can now configure my port

sysadmin-DEVICE_23>devices –name=myserver 24
