To access the BSC serial port functions:
1. Connect a nine-pin null-modem serial cable between the nine-pin serial port on the back of the BSC and your laptop computer.
2. Run a terminal emulation program on your laptop computer configured with the following settings:
• Port - COM1
• bps - 9600
• Data bits - 8
• Stop bits - 1
• Parity - None
• Flow control - None
3. Initiate the connection to the BSC.
4. Enter the following password at the displayed password prompt: wg1000s
A menu appears listing the commands described below.
1) dbinit - Restore all values in the BSC back to their defaults.
2) ifconfig - Show the NIC settings for the protected, managed, or failover interface.
3) processes - Show a list of all running processes.
4) restart - Restart the BSC software.
5) switch - Switch to the alternate runtime software image. You must subsequently issue the reboot command for the switch to take effect.
6) reboot - Reboot the BSC machine.
7) specials - [Reserved for Bluesocket use only].
8) clean - Delete older event logs. This is useful when disk usage is high.
9) exit - Exit the serial port session.
a) admin password recovery: Set the default admin account to its default password.
i) interface: Set the BSC’s protected interface address.
Type i followed by IP, Netmask, then gateway for fixed ip. For example:
i 192.168.100.30 255.255.252.0 192.168.100.1
Type i followed by the word 'dhcp' for dhcp. For example:
Once you change the IP address you will be required to restart the processes (option 3).
Worked Great! Thank You!
