Text Configuration Field Values
The firmware parser ignores blank lines at the end of the text configuration file.
If quotation marks enclose the write community string, the parser considers the
marks part of the string. If spaces are embedded in the string, the parser accepts
the first 19 characters, including spaces.
NOTE: If the text configuration file contains a valid "FV" line, the Flash is erased to
prepare for a Flash Update. See the section "Updating Flash" later in this chapter.
Text Configuration File Rules:
The configuration file can be composed with an ASCII text editor (each
line must be terminated with either a "CR/LF" (0x0D/0x0A) pair, a
"CR" or a "LF").
The maximum file size is 512 bytes.
The maximum line length is 132 bytes.
Comments must start with a semicolon (;) in Column 1. The file can
contain any number of comments as long as it does not exceed the
maximum file size and line length.
No spaces are allowed before or after the equal sign (=) in each line
(except for a write community string that starts with a space).
The acronyms, as well as the yes/no data, can be in upper or lower
There must be a comment line (e.g., ";END") after the last valid non-
comment line (e.g., "FV=8NW1.30"). Most XMODEM
implementations "pad" out the last 128-byte transmit block. The final
comment allows the parser to determine the precise end of the previous
non-comment line (i.e., avoids confusion with the "pad" characters).
The firmware version string indicates not only the version number but
also the type of repeater. The 8-port 2008 repeater uses 8NWx.xx and
the 16-port 2016 repeater uses NWVx.xx.
Certain combinations of IP addresses and Net Masks also cause configuration
errors. When the IP address (IP) is logically ANDed with the Net Mask (NM)
the result cannot be equal to the SLIP IP address (SI) logically ANDed with the
SLIP Net Mask (SM).
