8. The next steps perform the rpmbuild.
Type: cd /usr/src/packages/SOURCES
9. Type: rpmbuild --rebuild 40002086_k.rpm
10. Type: rpm -i /usr/src/packages/RPMS/ppc64/dgrp-1.9-1.ppc64.rpm
11. Once this step concludes successfully, the RealPort® installation on Red Hat is complete.
12. After the RealPort® software is successfully installed, the user should configure the IP address, go to 7036-P16 IP address,

7036-P16 Network Configuration
This section provides the following:
Brief discussion of the three principal network configuration methods.
How to configure the 7036-P16 onto an Ethernet network.
The 7036-P16 is an Ethernet device and as such it must be configured onto the network like any other Ethernet device. Various
network configuration methods are available to the user. The three principle methods are briefly described below.
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP):
The 7036-P16 is configured for DHCP at the factory. If the 7036-P16 is being attached to a network which employs DHCP,
then simply connecting to the network and powering up the will configure the 7036-P16 and the configuration task is
completed. This method is by far the simplest to use, but the 7036-P16 must be connected to a network that supports DHCP.
Ping-ARP:
The address Resolution Protocol (ARP) ties the MAC address from any network device to a unique IP address for that device
on a server. The MAC address and the IP address are kept by each server in an ARP Table. To use this method the user must
manually update the server's ARP Table with the 7036-P16's MAC address and the IP address being assigned to the 7036-
P16. The user would then use this IP address to ping the 7036-P16 and then telnet to the 7036-P16 to complete the
configuration. This method does not require the user to be in the same room as the 7036-P16. This method works equally
well for AIX and Linux installations. This method does not require the 7036-P16 be connected into a network that supports
DHCP.
Direct Terminal Attach:
A regular TTY Terminal or a PC running a terminal emulation program, may be attached directly to any one of the sixteen
ports and commands entered on the 7036-P16 command line to configure the 7036-P16 onto the network.
This method requires the user to be in the same room as the 7036-P16.
This method requires the user to have a tty terminal or a PC available.
This method requires a serial cable to connect the tty terminal or PC to the server.
This method is independent of the operating system installed on the server.

7036-P16 device IP configuration on an AIX host server
Before beginning this procedure, ensure that the 7036-P16 and the server are configured, attached to the network and the Digi
RealPort® software is installed on the server.
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 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
procedure.
2. Ensure the Digi RealPort® Software is installed on the server. Type the following command lslpp -l | grep digi
The response should be:
Configuration.
