II. Initial Configuration
The ARMC/3P´s communication

interface is based on TCP/IP. Initially,
the ARMC/3P network interface is
configured with the parameters
shown here:
IP auto configuration: DHCP
IP address: none
Net mask:
Gateway: none
IP access control: none
If this initial configuration does not
meet your local requirements, the
following describes the initial IP con-
figuration that is necessary to access
the ARMC/3P for the first time.
II (a) Using the Psetup Tool via
Graphical User Interface
You can choose between a psetup
tool for Windows, that requires a MS
Windows 2000 and higher, and a
psetup tool for LINUX. Both can be
found on the CD delivered with this
package. You can follow the proce-
dure described below. For other OS
you may either use the serial con-

II (c) Initial Configuration via Serial
To configure the ARMC/3P via serial interface
both a serial port replicator cable and a null
modem cable are required. Using a serial termi-
nal, the ARMC/3P has a serial line interface
(rear bracket). This connector is compliant with
the RS 232 serial line standard. To establish a
serial connection use a standard null modem
cable. The serial line has to be configured with
the parameters belowe. When configuring with
a serial terminal, reset the ARMC/3P and imme-
diately press the ESC key. You will see some
device information, and a "=>" prompt. Enter
config, press Enter and wait for a few seconds
for the configuration questions to appear.
