Machine Type Model 7036-P16 LAN attached remote Asynchronous node (RAN) (FC xxxx)
The 7036-P16 is a 16-Port EIA-232 LAN Attached Remote Asynchronous Node (RAN) for use with IBM
andIBM Systems. The RAN provides connectivity to asynchronous EIA-232 devices, such as modems, TTY terminals, printers, etc.
The RAN, when used with RealPort® software from Digi-Data Corporation, will convert the serial data stream to and from attached
asynchronous EIA-232 devices into Ethernet TCP/IP traffic. Once the data is on the TCP/IP network, a host system attached to the
same network can treat the attached devices as if the devices were connected directly to the host system.

  • Page 1 40A in rush • • 47 - 63 Hz 2A fuse 7036-P16 throughput considerations The limits on throughput are a function of the network and the server or server partition to which the 7036-P16 ports are configured. Serial Port Throughput:...
  • Page 2 Each 7036-P16 provides 16-Ports of asynchronous EIA-232 connectivity over a 10/100 Ethernet port at speeds up to 128 K bps. Given that any number of 7036-P16 may be attached to a server, a single server, or server partition could in effect have a large number of asynchronous EIA-232 connections.
  • Page 3 Documentation CD that was provided with the product. • Configure the 7036-P16 as a device on the host server. This in effect binds the 7036-P16 to the host server. • Configure the 7036-P16 serial ports for use with the Digi RealPort® software.
  • Page 4 If the RealPort® Package installed correctly the following is displayed: dgr-1.9.1 . Once this step is done successfully, the RealPort® installation on SuSE is complete. 16. After the RealPort® software is successfully installed, the user should configure the IP address, go to 7036-P16 IP address, 7036-P16 Network Configuration.
  • Page 5 -c 1 [IP address of target 7036-P16] If the 7036-P16 responds to the ping, then it is on the network and the user may proceed to 2. If the 7036-P16 does not respond to the ping, then the 7036-P16 is not on the network and the user must go to the 7036-P16 Network Configuration procedure.
  • Page 6 1. Ensure the 7036-P16 and the server are on the network. The user should ping the 7036-P16 by typing the following command: ping -c 1 [IP address of target 7036-P16]. If the 7036-P16 responds to the ping, then it is on the network, go to 2.
  • Page 7 -c 1 [IP address of target 7036-P16]. If the 7036-P16 responds to the ping, then it is on the network and the user may proceed to 2. If the 7036-P16 does not respond to the ping, then the 7036-P16 is not on the network and the user must go to the 7036-P16 IP address Configuration Procedure to perform the network configuration procedure.
  • Page 8 RARP=off 13. If the user plans to use the RealPort® software on the host server to control all the 7036-P16 ports, then the serial ports must be configured for use with the RealPort® software by executing the following command.
  • Page 9 Support Site. 11. If the latest firmware version is not the same as what was found in step 2, then the firmware on the target 7036-P16 is not current and it needs to be updated. Download a copy of the latest firmware to a directory on the host server and make a note of the directory and the file name.
  • Page 10 For example: /tmp/82000684_L.bin 11. If the POST version is not the same as what was found in step 3, then the POST on the target 7036-P16 is not current and it needs to be updated. Download a copy of the POST to a directory on the host server and make a note of the directory and the file name.
  • Page 11 8. If the firmware and POST versions are the same as in step 2, then the firmware and POST on the target 7036-P16 are current and nothing more is needed. Complete this procedure by logging out from the IBM Support Site.
