  • Page 7: Chapter 1 - Introduction

    Chapter 1 - Introduction About the BR Router Congratulations on your purchase of the BR Router multiport wide area router. The BR Router supports the IP, IPX, AppleTalk, and DECnet network protocols, with dial-on-demand and leased-line operation using the PPP and/or the Frame Relay wide area protocols.

  • Page 8: Getting Started

    In short, the installation steps are: 1. Install the BR Router hardware and connect it to one or more line communication devices (including modems, 56K CSU/DSU’s, ISDN Terminal Adapters, and fractional or full T1 CSU/DSU’s). 2. Select the management method you wish to use with the router. If you want to use the RouterView management software, you must install the software on a Windows PC or Macintosh computer which is connected to your network.

  • Page 9: Chapter 2 - Getting Started

    Chapter 2 - Getting Started A Few Notes Please Read The Manuals The manuals included with your BR Router contain some very important information about the BR Router and local and wide area networking in general. Please read this manual thoroughly, and refer to the management reference guides as required.

    Chapter 3 - Hardware Installation Ethernet 0 WAN 0 WAN 1 BR Router Back Panel This section of the manual describes how to connect the BR Router to your Ethernet network and your wide area communications device(s). In summary, the steps for installation are: 1.

  • Page 14: Connecting The Router To The Ethernet

    Connecting to Twisted-Pair Ethernet Before connecting the router to twisted-pair cabling you need an unshielded twisted- pair cable that is already connected to your 10BaseT-compatible twisted-pair hub. To connect the router to the twisted-pair network, simply plug the twisted-pair cable into the RJ-45 connector on the back of the unit.

  • Page 15: Connecting An Out-of-band Management Console

    The BR Router includes a special cable to facilitate connections to RS-232 Note line communications devices. This cable includes support for several asynchronous and synchronous control signals. Off-the-shelf cables generally do not support these signals. Connecting an Out-of-Band Management Console If you wish to connect an out-of-band management console, use the supplied cable and connect to the AUX/Console interface on the back of the BR Router.

  • Page 17: Chapter 4 - Routerview Software Installation

    Chapter 4 - RouterView Software Installation All of the routers in DCB’s multiprotocol family, can be managed from a single management platform called RouterView. Both a Windows and a Macintosh version of RouterView were included with your BR Router. Although the installation procedures for the Windows and Macintosh Note versions of RouterView are slightly different, the programs themselves are virtually identical.

  • Page 18: Installation And Operation

    Installation and Operation This version of the RouterView program can be found on a 3.5-inch diskette labeled “RouterView - Windows Disk” that was included with your BR Router. Start Windows. Insert the diskette into your computer’s disk drive. At the Windows Program Manager, select “Run”...

  • Page 19: Installation And Operation

    Double-click on the RouterView icon and the program will start up and ask you to select/create a location for its data files. Once the data files have been created, this message will not reappear when you run RouterView. For further information on using RouterView, see the RouterView Reference Guide included with your router.

  • Page 21: Chapter 5 - Command Line Management

    Chapter 5 - Command Line Management The command-line interface allows you to configure and monitor the router in-band via Telnet or out-of-band with a terminal connected to the BR Router’s AUX/Console interface. Telnet is a remote terminal communications protocol based on TCP/IP. With Telnet you can log into and manage the router from anywhere on your IP internetwork, including across the Internet if you choose.

  • Page 22: Temporarily Reconfiguring A Host For Command Line Management

    Temporarily Reconfiguring a Host for Command Line Management You can temporarily reconfigure an IP host in order to set the router’s IP parameters to allow in-band Telnet access. Once you have set these parameters you will want to change the host’s configuration back to its original settings. If you wish to set the router’s basic IP parameters in this fashion, the host must be on the same Ethernet segment as the router’s Ethernet interface.

  • Page 23: Chapter 6 - Quickstart Instructions

    Chapter 6 - Quickstart Instructions This Quickstart section briefly discusses the major parameters that must be set in order to use the router. This section does not include information on setting up packet filters for using the router as a Firewall. See the RouterView manual or Command Line manual regarding IP packet filters for more information.

  • Page 24: Ip Protocol

    IP Protocol Required for IP These parameters set the basic address characteristics of the interface. They provide enough information for another IP node to find the interface (such as a Telnet client), but not enough information for routing to take place. •...

  • Page 25: Appletalk Protocol

    AppleTalk Protocol Required for AppleTalk There are generally no required changes from the shipping Ethernet configuration for AppleTalk. The Ethernet interface will autoconfigure to use AppleTalk Phase 2, and will autoadapt to conditions on the Ethernet. Suggested for AppleTalk You may want to set your own network numbers, rather than using the autoconfigured values.

  • Page 26: Ip Protocol

    IP Protocol Required for IP WAN interfaces which are set for PPP operation do not generally use an IP address. They are set to act as an “unnumbered interface.” In this mode of operation, there are no required settings. Suggested for IP These parameters help supply information about the segment that the interface is connected to.

    • Update Method RV: Use the WAN - IPX screen. CL: Use interface(misc) and then ipx wan(set). AppleTalk Protocol Required for AppleTalk WAN interfaces which are set for PPP operation do not generally use an AppleTalk address. They are set to act as an “unnumbered interface.” In this mode of operation, there are no required settings.

    Link Configuration Required for Dedicated/Leased Line Operation Dedicated line operation is the simplest to set up. • Set Dedicated connection • Set PPP connection RV: Use the WAN - Link screen. CL: Use interface(misc) and then wan connect(set). Suggested for Dedicated/Leased Line Operation Dedicated line operation generally does not require additional parameters for operation.

  • Page 29: Physical Communications Settings

    Physical Communications Settings You may need to set the baud rate, sync/async operation, and other physical communications parameters for the WAN interface. These parameters will depend on the line communications device you are using. RV: Use the WAN - General window. CL: Use interface(misc) and then wan serial(set).

  • Page 30: Suggested For Ipx

    • IP Static Routes • IP Default Route/Router RV: Use the WAN/IP screen to set RIP, and the IP Static Routing Window (All - IP) to set static routes and a default route/router. CL: Use interface(misc) and then ip flags(set) to set RIP, and ip route(add) to add static routes and a default route/router.

  • Page 31: Suggested For Appletalk

    Suggested for AppleTalk The settings above are all that is generally required for AppleTalk operation over Frame Relay. DECnet Protocol Required for DECnet WAN interfaces which are set for Frame Relay operation do not need any additional parameters set in order to function. Link Configuration Frame Relay is presently supported in the BR Router only via synchronous dedicated line operation.
