    How do I change the eth0 ip address though the serial port console?

    jwhausk New Member

      We changed our IP address scheme I forgot to change the address of our BlueSocket Controller BSC600.  I have not been able to access it though normal means. I have access though the serial port,

      How do I change the eth0 ip address though the serial port console?

          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:

          i dhcp

           

          Once you change the IP address you will be required to restart the processes (option 3).
