    Adtran Utilities 3.0 won't launch on my Windows 7 PC

    digidave New Member

      I downloaded Adtran Utilities version 3.0 (11/06/2002) but it won't open on my Windows 7 PC. I am trying to save the configuration of the Atlas 550 so I can send the same configuration to multiple Atlas 550 units.

       

      Is there another way to get the syslog application, the telnet client, the VT100 emulator and the TFTP server?

          Yes, the ADTRAN Utilities were written for Windows 95: so it is unlikely it will work on Windows 7.

           

          There's no bundle that has all those application combined (that I'm aware of), but they are all available on the internet. ADTRAN does not recommend any specific applications, but here is what I use:

          For telnet and VT100 I use PuTTY - however PuTTY doesn't support an XMODEM file transfer. Other than that it works very well. PuTTY Download Page. Tera Term (Tera Term Open Source Project) works just as well, but I've grown more accustomed to the PuTTY interface.

          I actually use TFTP Daemon for both a TFTP Server and a Syslog Server.  TFTP server

           

          So those 4 applications can be covered by 2 programs.

           

          Hope this helps,

          Patrick

              Patrick,

               

              You continue to be of such great help. Thanks so much for sharing your

              expertise and providing me with answers. More questions to come!

               

              Kind regards,

              Dave

                Patrick,

                I downloaded the PuTTY and Tftpd apps and need some guidance as to how

                I go about saving the Atlas 550 configuration.

                 

                I launched the PuTTY app and specified the destination to connect to

                as the IP address I set earlier via my VT100 program and selected the

                the Connection type as Telnet. I hit Open and entered the Atlas 550

                password. This brought up a screen that is identical to the VT100

                screen seen earlier.

                 

                So I have both serial and ethernet active connections to the Atlas 550

                on 2 different machines. (The VT100 window is on a Mac and the PuTTY

                window is on a PC. And changes that I make in the PuTTY window are

                reflected in the VT100 window and vice versa.)

                 

                Following the directions in the Atlas 550 manual, I entered the local

                IP address into the TFTP Server IP Address field.

                 

                Then I changed the TFTP Server Filename to a unique filename for

                saving the config file to the remote server using the compete

                directory path to the file      C:\Users\Dave\Desktop\Atlas550.cfg

                 

                Then I moved to the Save Config Remotely field and pressed Enter and

                pressed y to confirm. Current Transfer Status shows Download: Copying

                Internal Config but Previous Transfer Status shows TFTP Error: File

                Access Violation. This occurs quickly.

                 

                I must be missing something in the procedure. Any suggestions?

                 

                (Also, how does the Tftpd app figure into this?)

                 

                Thanks for your help.
